RELEASE - Just Another Day Xtreme Arcade
Releasing with some slight changes so I can greedily take the award for "latest 2013 release"...

Just Another Day Xtreme Arcade is a mini-release, meant to let you have fun with the weird and zany gameplay that JAD2.22 will have. Or not, maybe I'll change it all again the next time I release. Things are always changing! But for the meantime, play these short and fun missions.

The central gimmick of the missions is BERSERK mode, where you destroy enemies to gain berserk power, which eventually lets you power your ship and weapons up to overpowered levels. And from there, you destroy everything in your way. It's all explained in the missions and stuff if you need more detail, though I don't know why, its so simple!

So have fun!


REQUIREMENTS:
FreeSpace 2 (you know you got it!)
FSO3.7.2 or later
A launcher (I like this one http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=67950.0)
2014 Mediavps (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?board=120.0)
Just Another Day 2.21 (earlier versions did not need JAD2.21, but that has changed now!)

DOWNLOADS:
Use the FSO Installer!
Advanced users can download the archive here. Just throw the contents in a folder called /JAD2-2/.

KNOWN ISSUES
The Titan is missing a texture, grab this package for your mediavps if it really bothers you. The Titan is in a single mission and doesn't really do anything, so its a low priority fix right now. But I will fix it for the next release! That's like fixed, yo.
If you take too long during the Sathanas boss during the Endless Gauntlet, the game may crash. Work around for now is to finish the mission faster!

Thanks for downloading!

Oh and pics to gawk at while waiting for it to download...





(now to worry about horrible bugs and things I have forgotten)

Re: RELEASE - Just Another Day Xtreme Arcade
Bug reportssss!

- While flying the Rhea with promS + Maxim, when entering overdrive and then reverting to normal, the maxim disappeared and the promS ended up in the maxim bank (on the side).

More info if I manage to reproduce.



- Sometimes upgraded piranhas explode at launch, causing unavoidable instadeath.

- You can't go back to the hub without either winning the mission or resetting the campaign (which makes you loose your scores). It should be easy to work around that by setting the missions as SOC loops.

Re: RELEASE - Just Another Day Xtreme Arcade
Not heaven's fire™ only explode 'on launch' when something is close when you launch them. (Detonation radius of 90) or when you hit secondary again right as you launch them. I've never had them explode in my face in any other scenario ever. I'm not dismissing your claims of bugged weaponry as false, I'm just dismissing them as a user error. And thus making you look incompetent and stupid. You can thank me now or later.

Wait, it's got proximity detonator?

FSO can do that?

Oh ****, I just understood why sometimes my ship turns like ****.

Sometimes when exiting Berserker mode I end up in the Ares instead of the Ezechiel I was flying. Weird ****. More info if I manage to reliably reproduce.

Are you playing with a recent nightly? There was a bug with lua ship index numbers until semi-recently. The recommended nightly should not have the problem.

Re: RELEASE - Just Another Day Xtreme Arcade
Just installed. It's pretty awesome and hilarious up until I got the int3()!

fs2_open.looooog

This is with the Jan 02 nightly, I'll try with 10253 in case something broke since then.

[EDIT] Picking up powerups seems to work fine with 10253. (Yeah I forgot - the crash was right when I grabbed a powerup).

Awesome gameplay you have here!

Re: RELEASE - Just Another Day Xtreme Arcade
FYI the download's been updated, it will work with the 2014 mediavps now. If you want it to work with the new mediavps and don't want to redownload the 200mb mod, open your mod.ini file in a text editor and change the part at the end from

Code: [Select]
secondarylist = mediavps_3612;
to

Code: [Select]
secondarylist = mediavps_2014;
I also removed some maps that the new mediavps have, no point in bloating the download size if I don't have to!

- You can't go back to the hub without either winning the mission or resetting the campaign (which makes you loose your scores). It should be easy to work around that by setting the missions as SOC loops.

You can go back to the hub at the start of the mission, where you select which mode you want to play. There's an abort mission option there. Later, when I feel like FREDding again, I will make a menu pop up asking if you want to go back to the hub if you go Alt-J.
