Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Forgive me if asking this is blasphemous (aka. fiddling with vanilla campaign content) but:

Q: Will there at any point be an attempt to clear up the node inconsistencies between FS1 and the FS2 Official Node Map via the Port? (eg. it is believed that a developer got Beta Cygni and Ribos confused during the Tatanis capture mission, so the above would mean changing the node in the Port version of the mission from from being to Beta Cygni to being to Ribos.)

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
No, we don't really want to try and retcon the nodes. The inconsistencies are just a part of FS1, and we'll have to live with them.

Besides, all the briefings are voice acted. Heck, the Taranis briefing is a rendered cutscene. :p

The Cutscene got it right but the mission didn't IIRC.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Vista doesn't even work with FSO*, so that's a bad example.

But as I said, retail-compatible does not mean retail-restricted.  We have plenty of FSO features in our projects.  And now Galemp is working on an FS1-era HTL pack.


*Some people have reported running FSO on Vista.  These people are either Microsoft corporate shills, or have been driven insane and are hallucinating.



I beg to differ. Personally, I picked up FS and FS2 from gog.com have been able to get both to run rather well on my computer, as well as upgrading to FSO. I happened to have been cursed with Vista 32-bit. The only major problem was getting FreeSpace 2 itself to work right... FSO works a great deal better.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Q: I use FSO 3.6.10 with the latest FSPORT release (3.1). Does the retail version of Free Space 1 contain
anything (e.g. voices, music), that FSPORT does not include, and that can be used with FSO/FSPORT?

The only thing we've been completely unable to reproduce is the backgrounds of FS1-- they were these weird gradients instead of the bitmaps FS2 uses. Really unique, I liked them.

Of course, with skyboxes...

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
From what I recall, there's still a small reference to the FS1 nebulae embedded in the code somewhere, but it's remained incomplete and/or deactivated.  I'd assume that it would be possible to re-create the feature, if someone spent some time playing around with it.

If by FSO, you mean all the nightly builds and what not as put out by the SCP, then you are quite wrong. I am neither hallucinating (due to insanity or other means) OR a corporate shill, and FSO runs just fine under Vista SP1 and the current Windows 7.

And under the exact same hardware, it runs on XP (32 and 64), Debian and Mac OS X (though it still has the same -no_glsl problems as a real Mac).

I think broad generalizations like that, especially coming from some one with as much time and status as you Goob, does not help things in any way and are far from constructive to _any_ project here on the HLP.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
I'm a bit curious, Goober. Why did you ask for volunteers to test all the (k)nightly builds yesterday on IRC? You implied that if the subsystem bug wasn't fixed, ST:R would be delayed. What kind of scanning missions are there in ST:R?

Well in the trailer there was one part where the player was required to scan one of the Seraphim bombers, and considering that the Hades has a much more involved role in ST:R, maybe you have to scan it at some point :nervous:

Scan two wings of Kappa, and then destroy the one that's hostile. Once you figure out the hostile wing, you don't have to scan anymore. Just destroy them.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Maybe this was answered before:

1. I've never played FS1 through the FS-Port, but I want to give it a shot.
2. I'm a german speaking guy and I consider the german localisation of FS1 pretty solid (at least thats what I remember). And I like playing games in my mother language if it was done well.

So, it is in any way possible to play the FS1 campaign in FS-Port but with german voice acting, briefings and videos?

Forgive me if this sounds like a stupid question. I consider it a possibility because it works with FS2.
