Oh big deal.
I have never had problems with FileFront.
[22:29] <sigtau> Hello, #hard-light?  I'm trying to tell a girl she looks really good for someone who doesn't exercise.  How do I word that non-offensively?

So just because you don't have problems with FileFront, that means we don't either? :doubt:

[EDIT] Played a few missions. "Holy ****" is all I can say.

Spoiler:
Kinda dull without pilot heads popping up or targeting, but it lets me know that it's WAY in the past. :nervous: :D

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

I love no targeting, it really gives a different style of gameplay and yeah, it does make you seem far in the past. The first thing I do after I finish the campaign is open up a .tbm and add an Ares, Maxim, Kayser, Treb and Tornado in there. :D

Good. :) There have been a few lively debates over the years on how that would be received.

AFAIK, most FileFront issues would be from using a non-standard downloader (eg, Free Download Manager, GetRight, FlashGet, etc, etc, which normally work excellently and really increase the speed and reliability of the download).  So, use your bypass key, or hit cancel on the download manager's window, and you should get the standard IE download box.  For FireFox, if you are using FlashGot plugin with an external downloader, just hit "Save to Disk" instead, or uncheck the "Use FlashGot" option.  Is this your problem?

I finished the demo; hot damn, I want more. :D

I found a slight goof though. The last cutscene plays before the last mission and then after the last mission, so it plays twice.

I also found a spelling error in one of the missions. Can't remember what it was now.

Noted.  Download a fixed campaign file from the first post in this thread.

Well, that doesn't help us much, does it? :p

whoaaa :eek2: :eek2: :eek2:! great work people!  :yes:
Feels like playing good old Terminus. Great idea, great concepts, nice political landscape.
Will there be voiceacting in the final campaign?

just one complaint, the way you have to download this sucks, couldn't you have made a optional all-in-one download?
on the other hand, I downloaded it already so it probably does not matter...

Uh-oh, the lack of targeting is a feature - and I first thought I just made some stupid mistake while instaling the thing. :nervous: Don't know if I ever get used to that. I hope you didn't overdo with all the lowtech. But this is just my first impression, a real review follows as soon as I've finished the demo. :)

Well, it froze about one second into the outro cutscene, but I just went and extracted it from the VP and watched it manually. Haven't bothered trying it again. Did you want an error log? Or would that be better addressed to the SCP, seeing as it's more likely a 3.6.9 problem than a TVWP problem?
Spoiler:
The lack of targeting stays around just long enough to get used to it, then you wow me by giving back what you had taken away. Never again will I take targeting for granted. When I heard there was no targeting, I assumed there was just no lead indicator, and that I can deal with, but boy this was something different!

Are these missions going to be included in the chapter 1, or is this totally separate?

  • The GTA expects that every man will do his duty.
These missions are Act I of three acts.  The final release will simply add Acts II and III.
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.
