RELEASE: 3.6.12 Release Candidate 4 (RC4)
Here it is! RC4 for the upcoming 3.6.12. Included below is the commit history since RC3.

Important!!
As Post Processing is a new feature, as are the Unified Shaders, don't forget to grab FSU_and-PostProc_Shaders.7z
A .vp version of these will be available once it is determined that no changes are necessary (which will then become available for Final Release).
All .sdr files go to *\data\effects and the .tbl goes in to *\data\tables.
* can be either the mediavps\ or main FreeSpace2\ dir.
Enabling post-processing without the shaders present should not crash any more.  Be sure to test.

Important!!
As always, you need OpenAL installed.  Linux and OS X come with it but Windows users will need to get Creative's OpenAL installer.

Important!!
Also, since the internal code linking for TrackIR was revised, an external DLL is now required for FSO to use TrackIR functions.
The following DLL is simply unpacked in to you main FreeSpace2 root dir.
TrackIR is only supported on Windows.
TrackIR SCP DLL

Launchers, if you don't have one already:
Windows:  Launcher 5.5f (new launcher version! Support for all nightly builds as well as 3.6.12) or wxLauncher (ongoing project for a unified launcher on all platforms)
OS X:  Soulstorm's OS X Launcher 3.0
Linux:  YAL or here or by hand or whatever you can figure out.

Known issues:
  • Reinforcements are not always removed from the list.  Hopefully there will be a fix in final.

Every time you lump all religious folk under the blanket statement "delusional" or "ignorant," you put yourself on the level of the "God Hates Fags" crowd.
On the same token, there's nothing wrong with disliking religion--it's just that being an ass about it doesn't prove a point any further.

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.12 Release Candidate 4 (RC4)
SSE builds are for basically P3 or higher processors.  SSE2 P4 or higher.  The difference is code optimization to take advantage of the processor.  Google it for more info or if you are unsure what class your processor is.

Same mediavps as in 3.6.12 RC3, meaning post-prcessing .sdr files in data/effects/ folder, table files, etc.?
Edit: Just to be safe, I did replace the effects/tables files with the ones from the first post, and it seems to be working, but the effect is usually apparent in the nebula. It's just that I can't believe the my eyes with the vast improvement on framerate.

(Did they fix the missing mission dialogue glitch, the one that uses the <any wingman> script?)

That's a mediavps error, which was partially fixed in the patch, and completely fixed in the next mvps.

Are these builds intentionally lacking text-to-speech in missions? (Works fine in briefings, not in-flight though).

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.12 Release Candidate 4 (RC4)
Did you mark the checkboxes in the Launcher to enable TTS in missions? Do the missions you are playing use the message beep? Because if they are, TTS will not engage. And before you say "that's a bug", no, it's not. Because the engine can't tell the difference between a message beep and a VA line.

No I asked about this a while back, I thought I was not hearing it in missions either, but I thought others were saying they have been.  But if I'm not the only one having this problem, it might be an actual issue.

I thought someone had coded in a work-around a while back that would disable the usual message beep files if TTS was turned on.  I could be wrong, though.
