RELEASE: The Great War - Vasudan Imperium DEMO
Hello!! The Demo is finally here guys!

This release includes:

  • Demo campaign consisting of thirteen missions!
  • In-game cutscenes!
  • PVN HUD graphics and interface art!
  • New backgrounds and music!

When you play this demo campaign I recommend that you play it with text to speech turned on.

Download the campaign here!

Along with the release of Vasudan Imperium Demo there is a patch for FSPort that includes low-resolution and high-resolution command briefing anis made since the release, some of which VI uses.

Download the FSPort CB Ani patch here!

Vasudan Imperium Demo can be unpacked to its own mod folder, but the CB Ani patch VP should be unpacked to the main FSPort folder, and you must have Retail FS2, FSOpen 3.6.12, FreeSpace Port 3.2, MediaVPs 3.6.12, and the latest FSPort MediaVPs installed to play.

EDIT: Screenshots would be appreciated! Thank you!

Re: RELEASE: The Great War - Vasudan Imperium DEMO
My name is Galemp, and I endorse this message.

KNOWN ISSUES:

You will receive wingman messages from Terran personas. This is a bug in the code; all wingmen have the Vasudan persona assigned to them. Sorry that it breaks immersion.

Only five of our new briefing music tracks will appear due to the limit of 30 in the code, and the FS1 and FS2 music already being implemented. Depending on the reception music might get an overhaul for the final campaign.

Some briefings will not have CB anis unless you have the patch VP linked in the thread installed, due to a number of animations being created for this campaign.

Re: RELEASE: The Great War - Vasudan Imperium DEMO
Spoiler:
It is a solid good demo pack. Enjoyed playing it especially blowing the Orff up. Really shows what would happen if the vasudans knew how to fight properly (hidden racism bwahaha). Seriously though the Vasudan atmosphere is caught greatly. The weapons are original and FSPort looks greater than ever. The terran heads didn't really ruin the immersion much for me. I have faith in you that it will be replaced in the final version. Good Luck finishing this very promising mod.

The funny factor:
This proves that Alpha 1 isn't immortal. Blew up a few of them.
And by the way nice job with the Bosch Beer cargo :lol:
-Woohoo new campaign! No time to play? ****!!

-Why in the bloody hell is command only giving Colossus ONE wing of bombers against the Sathanas?!

What release are you running? You should be running release 3.6.12r.

They aren't playing dead, they just wait for the freighter to be destroyed before attempting to pick up the cargo. Also they only pick up the missile containers.

The spew says it right there:
fs2_open_3_6_13r_INF_SSE2-20100924_r6508.exe

3.6.13 release build. Something's wrong with your music tables and should be fixed, I think.

No, it's the music code bug. FSO's expecting the end to be at line 19, but ees not.

Re: RELEASE: The Great War - Vasudan Imperium DEMO
Huh, interesting. Never got any errors in the official 3.6.12 release build, and we never tested it with anything else.

Well either the code will bump their limits or we'll trim it down to just 5 tracks. Never thought it would cause problems in anything other than debug.

Re: RELEASE: The Great War - Vasudan Imperium DEMO
You know, you could have asked. It's not like FSPort is the only mod with lots of tabled tracks.

(Also, debug errors and warnings are there for a reason. Ignore them at your own peril.)

Anyway. You guys able to play alright with 3.6.12r?

It's only forward compatibility if a given feature is actually requested and implemented, I think.

It's not so much a bug as it is Volition simply not bothering to have certain Vasudan wingmen lines.  "Alpha arrives" through "Epsilon arrives" are the most glaring omissions.

Anyway, well done on the release. :):yes:

Re: RELEASE: The Great War - Vasudan Imperium DEMO
Goob, if you had played the campaign, you would know that your wingmates are not Alpha through Epsilon. :(

Rather, all the 'Watch your six' messages are from Terran personas, even though there are no such personae in the mission.
