Well it's taken its time, but despite impressive efforts on behalf of bugs and disgruntled .pofs, Transcend is getting released.

Story:
Only a few short months after the end of the Second Shivan Incursion, amongst the chaos of Capellan refugees and ever-heightening levels of piracy, mysterious things have been happening on the edge of GTVA space. Unexplained disappearances, strange rumours ...

Lieutenant Sunder Marcel enjoyed his assignment in the Luyten patrol. The pay was average, but the work was quiet and that's why he chose it. The only enemies he had to face out here were pirates and arrogant traders. Both had the same motivation: money. That's something he can understand.

Then comes the charge of treason. He goes willingly, of course, because surely it's a misunderstanding. But the three pilots that come to arrest him have made no mistake.



Required to play this campaign:
FreeSpace 2 Open
MediaVPs

Transcend [44 MB]

Huge thanks to the SCP for their awesome work, and to phreak and taylor for their dedicated bugfixing - Transcend would have been impossible without it.

UPDATE: Backslash has put together an update to the campaign which adds the new starfield skybox to the missions and fixes a few bugs. The main link has been updated.

UPDATE: Download updated. Now uses modular tables and the ending has been converted to OGG. Also fixed a few minor bugs.

44MB ey? Might be a bit to much for my poor 56k to handle :D

Maby I will get it (an all-nighter..)

The thread, she's full of complaints! :D

Anyway, I'm loving it so far, Ransom. Great atmosphere and story, really adds to it. :yes:
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

Well, I can't get past the starting load screen for the Campaign. It gets about half bars and then locks up my entire computer. Goober Build OpenGL.

More/less, think it's 450mhz or something (overclocked from 300?). After I'm through with school, starting this August, assuming I get a job I'll buy a real computer sometime . . .:lol:

Spoiler:
Ransom...I'm kinda disappointed in you. You didn't playtest.

Otherwise you would have noticed that in the last few missions the civilians can't be saved. Dueling GTVA warships gun them down regardless of your efforts. Not only is it silly, it looks really stupid to see an Orion blow away a civilian Hippocrates.

Aside from that, there was also one case where you apparently forgot to change the Generation's name from a previous version...the rather apt Persistence.

I did playtest it. Not thoroughly enough, apparently, not sure how I missed that. As for the second thing, ghn, Freudian slip on my part. I'm surprised neither myself nor Duelron caught that.

i didn't notice it as being a problem. This campaign has about 50 missions, so you can't blame us for missing the odd bug

Also, brilliant campaign so far. I would not have guessed that fs2 could be so creepy...I actually found myself wanting to edge closer to other friendly ships at times... :nervous:

What does the patch do?  Should I download it now or when I finish the campaign?

On the plus side, I am very impressed that you've managed to turn FS2 into Dean Koontz-ish horror...

Having foolishly stayed up all night to finish the campaign, I must also congradulate you on some very nice FREDding in parts, and note that OpenGL is not required at all for anything to work.
