RELEASE: 3.6.12 Release Candidate 2 (RC2)
Here it is! RC2 for the upcoming 3.6.12. Included below is the commit history since RC1.

Important!!
As Post Processing is a new feature, as are the Unified Shaders, don't forget to grab FSU_and-PostProc_Shaders.7z
A .vp version of these will be available once it is determined that no changes are necessary (which will then become available for Final Release).
All .sdr files go to *\data\effects and the .tbl goes in to *\data\tables.
* can be either the mediavps\ or main FreeSpace2\ dir.
Enabling post-processing without the shaders present should not crash any more.  Be sure to test.

Important!!
As always, you need OpenAL installed.  Linux and OS X come with it but Windows users will need to get Creative's OpenAL installer.

Important!!
Also, since the internal code linking for TrackIR was revised, an external DLL is now required for FSO to use TrackIR functions.
The following DLL is simply unpacked in to you main FreeSpace2 root dir.
TrackIR is only supported on Windows.
TrackIR SCP DLL

Launchers, if you don't have one already:
Windows:  Launcher 5.5e (new launcher version! fixes hyphens in mod folder names issue)
OS X:  Soulstorm's OS X Launcher 3.0
Linux:  YAL or here or by hand or whatever you can figure out.

Known issues:
  • -voicer should be working again.  Think I got the VS2008 build steps down now.
  • Previous stability issues may have been exaggerated.  Please determine if this build seems to be as stable as any recently released builds.

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.12 Release Candidate 2 (RC2)
So how exactly does one use the alternate lead indicator in RC2?

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.12 Release Candidate 2 (RC2)
Hi,

Has post-processing been changed (apart from switched to experimental) in this build? Compared to 3.6.12 RC1 with the same command line, bloom won't work in this build.
In the log attached, it disables post-processing at the start of a mission.  :(

The video card I'm using is an ATI 3850, Catalyst driver 10.2

But it's just a release candidate. Or "just" a release candidate but still. Once the official release occurs.

Plus, there's already an announcement.

Yeah announcements and highlights for an RC is a bit overkill.  Taylor made some tweaks to the post processing besides moving it to experimental.  It's also supposed to disable itself when there are no post processing shaders present, to prevent the crash previously experienced.  But if there's an issue with that we definitely need to get that fixed for final.  Any other info about your setup would be helpful too, that's not already in the log.

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.12 Release Candidate 2 (RC2)
It depends. Mainly on how many bugs we can find in RC2. Hopefully, we won't need an RC3.

RC3 != final.  If it's final it won't be RC3.

On a side note I think an announcement for the RCs is a good thing.  People may find and test them from there before they ever look for them here.  

Dang it E quit posting a the same time as me.

Thanks for the info chief. I enabled an effect in the post_processing.tbl using the AlwaysOn flag, and bloom now works even if the default value for that effect is set to 0.
I guess post-processing only gets enabled if an entry in that table is used, so perhaps a good idea would be to move the Bloom effect to that table?

FUBAR, sorry I agree that an announcement is fine, I just meant specifically that the combined announcement+highlight is a bit much :)

Welcome waistless.  That sounds interesting actually, like you shouldn't need an entry just to have it active.  Might still be a small issue with it, not sure.

I'm interested for this too, if someone could en-light us?

Create indicator-hdg.tbm in data\tables, put following line in there and save.
Code: [Select]
$ALTERNATE LEAD INDICATOR: YES
At least I think that was it, I don't have chat log from irc so I wrote it from top of my head. :p

I tried it yesterday and it was horrible to say the least. I don't know how anyone can play with this enabled. :D

From what I remember from the conversation, this syntax is subject to change.  Be aware.

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.12 Release Candidate 2 (RC2)
In FS2 retail, your ship was being whacked around when hit by a beam. This was a (probably unintentional) sideeffect of a bug in the beam impact code that was kept as a feature in the release exe.
That bug was fixed, but emulating the old beamwhack behaviour took longer than anticipated.

Compared to 3.6.12 RC1 with the same command line, bloom won't work in this build.
I'm finding that the same thing happens to me as well, simply going to several older builds I notice that Post-Processing works again, but not at all on this build.
