Re: Alcibiades' Gamble Demo Released!
Why two threads, by the way? Isn't one enough?

And you spelled the campaign's name wrong a number of times as Alcibilades' Gamble.

"Truth" is the opinion of the majority which it can enforce on the minority. Members of the minority have two choices: join the bandwagon or think. Those who do not fall into line will be brutally crushed.
The tools to maintain order are: lies, double standards, and hypocrisy. The most powerful and the most insidious of them is hypocrisy

Re: Alcibiades' Gamble Demo Released!
What I've seen so far is good. Only problem is the English - There are some recurring mistakes in it. For example: "try and", and in another briefing it's "try to". I'm getting it all screenshotted so I can review it thoroughly. Anyway, only real problem I've found is with the Kestrel: I have no chance in this mission. I can't get close which is what's required to destroy the beam cannons. At the same time I have to deal with the bombers and fighters. Whichever course of action I take, the Mathis is destroyed.

It's the flak cannon that's killing the Mathis.
Kill that. (and use your wingmen as flak bait)

Got tired of trying, so I advanced to the next mission. Freespace 2 crashed when the next mission started loading, and now it does this when I try to access the campaign...  :blah:

Re: Alcibiades' Gamble Demo Released!
The one on filefront?
The one on our website is an older internal version by mistake.

Re: Alcibiades' Gamble Demo Released!
The filefront one should be just fine. :wtf:

Does anyone else have this problem? 
Also, Nemisis6, what build are you running on?

I've just done a quick play through of the first four missions. No bugs or issues to report, played well and the story seems good so far.

Re: Alcibiades' Gamble Demo Released!
Okei. Had a little playthrough and some first impressions:
As usual for me, I just type what I thought when I played it in an incoherent fasion.

  • Very good intro, didn't see any bugs. A little problem arised when the text appeared because I was busy watching the centre of the screen and didn't notice at first. That's what I get for using a widescreen :p
  • Very good backgrounds throughout. I particulary liked the planet with the ring that appeared more and less distant between missions. Gives you the feeling you're not skipping randomly through space like the original campaign
  • The fight in the supply depot was fun.
  • The loadout changed mysteriously to default in mission 3
  • No chatter with the Kestrel after taking out the Sarnid?
  • The last mission was good. The escort window got a bit cluttered though. You should consider changing the escort priorities to make the friendy capships on top.
  • MathisInverse... Another easter egg?

All in all; a very good demo that has made me exited about the finished product. Although I'll probably never manage to remember the correct name of the campaign.

 
Re: Alcibiades' Gamble Demo Released!
I beat "In Search of a Safe Harbor," and the debriefing congratulated me on success, but when I tried to accept it said I failed.   :wtf:  This is especially frustrating because I barely got out of there alive; I was at 9% hull integrity with my rear shields down during the jump and thought I was dead for sure, but somehow made it. 

Edit:  It did it again.  What the heck is going on here?

Re: Alcibiades' Gamble Demo Released!
Query: 
Spoiler:
Why do the Trafalgar and Mathis take so long to go beam free in Fickle Loyalties?  Is the trigger the Mathis' damage or something?  I've noticed they seem to start shooting faster when I'm a little slow off the mark killing the rear beam.
