It has always been an interesting feature of the site, that I could receive critics even before I posted something...   :nervous:

Me too, but I do seem to remember some discussion about it a while ago. Though I forgot what brought it up.

You did what now? :wtf:

Doesn't work on SCP. And Retail doesn't work to me. . .

Re: RELEASE - TCP - Chapter Two: The Zone
A debug build is nice enough to point out what it's unhappy about.
weapons.tbl, line 1165: move the damage entry to above the blast force entry.

It also whines about explode1 only having one LOD. You can get rid of that by adding
Code: [Select]
$Name: Explode1
$LOD: 1
to the weapons_expl.tbl

Re: RELEASE - TCP - Chapter Two: The Zone
It's likely that the issue with the weapons.tbl is causing the game to give up after that entry, causing it to skip all the secondary weapons.

Re: RELEASE - TCP - Chapter Two: The Zone
You have secondaries in all missions (in retail).
If it does not work on retail then it is something with the installation.
Make sure you have cleaned your data subfolders and you have no other modded vp files in the FS2 main directory.
It is always good to start with a new pilot (as the readme says).

It is retail only because I had no time to follow the changes in SCP builds and to make the artwork for the advanced features either.
The previous release (Chapter One that is the first 7 missions of this release) used to work on FSO, only mission2 (tcp02.fs2) needed a patch.
I did not enclose the patch now, because I have changed / updated Chapter One missions as well (for retail), and it may not work with the old patch now.
Just fly on !

Re: RELEASE - TCP - Chapter Two: The Zone
maybe you could ask someone to patch it to SCP =)
then you continue modding with SCP use.

I'll try that campaign. there must be a way to add those secondaries with modding  :p

Re: RELEASE - TCP - Chapter Two: The Zone
I can't play this even though I want to, due to the fact it doesn't work on SCP...

Re: RELEASE - TCP - Chapter Two: The Zone

I can't do, I've never used SCP actually.
It was PhReAk who made the patch for Chapter One.
It was only one SEXP that had to be changed in the 2nd mission, all the rest worked well with that build.
I released mission 2 with that SCP-friendly SEXP now.
The secondary / capship issue is something new, that's a good example why it is difficult to follow SCP with user campaigns.
If someone takes the time to patch I'll greet him and give credits. That's all I can promise.
TCP has always been a retail campaign, even then it took quite a long time to get here.
Just fly on !

 
Re: RELEASE - TCP - Chapter Two: The Zone
Just fixed the two things Spicious found and changed my tables according to it... haven't played many missions of the campaign but these worked without a problem. Attached the two changed files to my post so that everyone can test them.

Will update the file if necessary.

Thanks to Spicious for the hint and to Admiral MS for the files !
