When I try to start it I get the following error:

Code: [Select]
Error: ASW_strings-lcl.tbm is corrupt
File: localize.cpp
Line: 608


Call stack:
------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------

The Error is the same wether the optional vp files are in the folder or not. I also tried to re-download the modpack, but that didn't change anything.

When I click on Ok, I get the following error (again and again):
Code: [Select]
Error: ASW_strings-lcl.tbm(line 28:
Error: Expecting int, found [].

File: PARSELO.CPP
Line: 670


Call stack:
------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------

I tried to run it with the 3.6.10 final build and the re-released 3.6.10 MediaVPs.

Could you run it with a debug build and then post your fs2_open.log? This sounds a lot like the issue people were having when they tried to use the 3.6.10 MediaVPs (without the patch) with a German FS2.

Re: RELEASE: Ancient-Shivan War, Act I
Just going to post my initial impressions since I'm about to make my way through the campaign.

Immersion-wise, you guys have got it. The interface, sounds and music are perfect. I knew I was in for something special when the very well-done intro movie finished playing, and was confirmed when the mainhall music kicked in. Awesome.

The redone ancient fighters look superb. It seems my favourite Ancient ship got relegated to a freighter, but I get the feeling that it's all a mistake and the Malia's still going to make an entrance soon (I couldn't bring myself to Ctrl-Shift-S the tech database) :P

I'm excited and honoured to be finally playing this. More comments to come after I finish the missions.

 
Re: RELEASE: Ancient-Shivan War, Act I
Hmm, well the Inferno team is responsible for the degradation of what used to be the Malia, as well as the renaming of many ships. But they pretty much doubled our ship collection, so we've made some compromises.

Rodo, no kissing plz (eww) :P

Here's my log.
I do have the german version of FS2, but I got the patch installed.

Re: RELEASE: Ancient-Shivan War, Act I
Yeah, that's probably the same cause. This means that either you have to change FS2's language setting to english, or the ASW team will have to create a patch.

Re: RELEASE: Ancient-Shivan War, Act I
Which leads us to the question: why the ASW_strings-lcl.tbm?

And on a related note: an unofficial patch for the time being (place it to \freespace2\asw\ ). I sure hope it works. (I just stumbled upon this idea for a fix in the MediaVPs release thread, so I have absolutely no previous experience in the matter.)

Re: RELEASE: Ancient-Shivan War, Act I
Well, thanks Jeff; added to release thread :) Is there a specific reason you didn't add #Polish ? It's in the MV_Core mv_strings-lcl.tbm , but not in your patch.

:nervous: Oops. I just copied the end from utops's post at the MediaVPs release thread and didn't really take a look at it. Uno momento...

Edit: Patch updated to hopefully fix the issue with Polish versions as well.

I downloaded the Intro and had a peek. It's intrigued the heck out of me now. I'll download it all later in the year.

running with this build (I has no debug .exe right now but I can get it if you want it)

Downloaded all the VP's save the multilanguage patch, played the two first missions without problems so far.. so it's not a critical problem I guess.

Good stuff
The shivans are a bunch of slow pussies though. I had far more wingmen dying on me in the first bunch of missions than against the shivans. The ancients are dicks and I really want the next act so we can see their downfall  :D

Yep that patch fixed it. Thanks you.

And at least the main menu music is from the game "Universe at War: Earth Assault" if I'm not mistaken. Got to be one of the Masari music pieces.
