Re: FreeSpace Port 3.2 + FSPort Media VPs 3.6.12 Discussion!
Due to a lack of beams, there is no beam piercing in the FSPort (except, of course, for the Lucifer's beams).

Also, when reporting a problem, always remember to post a log. Instructions on how to do this can be found in the FAQ, which is stickied in the support board.

Okay. Im missing only the Beam-Piercings from the Lucifer in Mission "Communication Failure"  (or else)  -  Do you mean the FAQ on FSO/FS2 ?
My english isnt very good. Please forgive me :)

I'm pretty sure that this release does not contain piercing effects for the Lucifer beam weapon.

Galemp can correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, due to an administrative oversight the beam piercing table entry didn't make it into the FSPort MediaVP on time. It'll be in the ST:R rerelease package.

Re: FreeSpace Port 3.2 + FSPort Media VPs 3.6.12 Discussion!
Hi,

I tried to play the current FSPort campaign, but the game crashes while trying to display the video after the "Avenging Angels" mission. I can hear for about 10 seconds the sound and the beginning of the narration, but instead the video the screen is either filled with colorful squares or just light grey with some filickering squares in the bottom left corner.

I'm running the game on OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). After the crash, the OS X crash report opens. It seems that the Theora decoder is crashing:

I downloaded the video package and reinstalled it, but that didn't change anything.

Does anybody have other suggestions which I might try, or do I have to wait for a bugfix..?  :sigh:

Make sure you do not have the flag "disable scale-to-window for movies" selected in the launcher.

It's possibly that your computer can't handle the 720p movies. Go here and grab the 480p versions.

Lastly, if this doesn't fix the issue, post the debug.log. Instructions for that are here.

Re: FreeSpace Port 3.2 + FSPort Media VPs 3.6.12 Discussion!
Ok, I've downloaded the 1080p and the 480p variants. They both display correctly in the VLC player.

The 1080p variant will also crash in the game, the 480p variant just shows a green screen (with cinemascope borders... :-) ) and I can hear the narration -- but it doesn't crash. The game continues with the next mission...

The OS X launcher doesn't seem to know about a "disable scale-to-window for movies" flag and I didn't add command line arguments manually...

I have a Mac Pro (2008 model) with a Nvidia Geforce 8800GT and a display with 1920x1200 resolution -- so the hardware shouldn't be the problem...

At least I can continue the game for now, but it would be nice if this could be fixed... ;-) The introduction video displays correctly, by the way...

It seems you may have an issue with the new cutscenes. Until things are figured out, I recommend using these instead.

Ok, thanks -- these are indeed working in the game. Needless to say that the hires variants are much nicer... ;-)

If you need more information or testing -- I'm willing to help, just send me a mail...

Sadly, you've run across the OGG movie player bug which has been known to be a problem on OSX for quite a while:(  Although we know exactly what the problem is and how to fix it, we do not have any OSX developers.  And unfortunately, we have not had any success in the four months since we made that post.

Do you know of any programmers who have OSX and would be willing to compile a library for us?

I was wondering if anyone had reviewed the latest version of the effects pack I had put up a few months ago, as I see that none of its resources made the cut. At least knowing what happened to it, even if it got rejected, would be nice.

Yeah. Some of the effects in fsport_mediavps aren't exactly perfect either.

I preferred my own custom-made effects to recolors of existing effects. Sorry.

Just a side question, is the 3.2 FSPort available via Turey's installer?
