RELEASE: 3.6.12 Release Candidate 3 (RC3)
Here it is! RC3 for the upcoming 3.6.12. Included below is the commit history since RC2.

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 5.5f (new launcher version! Support for all nightly builds as well as 3.6.12) or wxLauncher (ongoing project for a unified launcher on all platforms)
OS X:  Soulstorm's OS X Launcher 3.0
Linux:  YAL or here or by hand or whatever you can figure out.

Known issues:
  • Currently none.

Great. Post-Processing effects are working now.

On that note, "Mystery of the Trinity" is kind of borked, with the ships too close to the hull of the Aquataine.

That would be a mission issue, probably. Unless you can show that it's different on RC2.

Also, when making bug reports, always be EXTREMELY specific when describing the bug.

Can we get the beam miss factors by team feature backported to 3.6.12 so War in Heaven can run on it?  :nervous:

Sorry to nag, you guys are amazing and I love you. Have had nothing but amazing experiences working with SCP coders.

I see. Is that being worked on or is there a work around? I already put the necessary files to fix the dialogue problems in /data/missions, and I'd assume they'd also help with this issue in that regard.

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.12 Release Candidate 3 (RC3)
The only workaround is to open the mission in FRED and readjust the positions of the friendly fighters. This has been done in the mediavps svn, which means it'll be in the next release.

They won't. The problem is that the HTL Hecate model used in the MediaVPs has slightly thicker wings than the retail Hecate.

Added $Random Sidethrust Percent to AI Profiles and AI.tbl. Allows ships with sidethrust capability to sometimes randomly use it in dogfighting situations to make life more miserable for the player.
Cool
Can it be added to the wiki so I can make use of it (So I know where to put it in ai.tbl)?

Edit:
Seems the circle strafe a.i. changes affects difficulty for Wings of Dawn a bit. A.i. seems slightly more concerned with staying mobile instead of keeping the target in their sights 24/7. Instead of slowing down so they can keep shooting at you, they slow down a bit, then speed up, create a bit of distance and attempt to strafe again.
From initial tests I think its actually easier now. Less streams of constant fire going in your direction.

Edit 2:
Yeah, the new circle strafe ai makes the ai using it a joke. Very kindly request the old behavior back.
I balanced a whole campaign around the aggresive circle strafe ai. This ruins it quite a bit.

Very minor thing - when I opened up FRED (Inferno SSE2), the top of the window says "FRED2_OPEN 3.6.12 RC1".  I presume that it isn't actually 3.6.12 RC1, but I just wanted to let you guys know.

Yeah, that sort of fell through the cracks when RC3 was compiled. Don't worry though, FRED got recompiled as well, and thus benefited from a few of the bugfixes.

I've held off on putting it in the wiki because I'm not actually done tweaking the feature yet. It wasn't intended for 3.6.12.

Edit:

Objection noticed, cause identified, and patch committed. 6260 makes the circle strafe AI more aggressive again.

I, for one, am unable to replicate that issue.

Post Processing, but you need to use an experimental flag for it, additional shaders and a proper graphic card.
