Found errant ships.tbl in main FS2/data folder and removed, but same error occurs.

Am using Launcher v5.5, have tried fs2_open_3_6_9-7dot9x.exe and fs2_open_3_6_9.exe with same results.

CLI is "-mod TVWP -spec -glow -env -jpgtga -mipmap -2d_poof -missile_lighting -dualscanlines -targetinfo -rearm_timer -3dwarp -warp_flash -snd_preload -alpha_env "

Will test again once downlads are complete (DL'ing at 50KB/s so will take a several mins...)

Are you sure I have to delete/move textures, icons and other files from my root FS2 folder?

They shouldn't be in your root FS2 folder anyway! They should be in mod folders!!

They're just innocent maps and icons. Anyway, removing everything from my root FS2 folder didn't help. I get the same error! :mad:

Disregard my problem - I R st00pid.

The root vp wasn't decompressed...

 
Just finished the campaign.  It was great!  I can't wait until the next chapter.

I got the missing model error box as well, but it didn't kill the game, so I just kept pressing OK until I reached the briefing stages.

It might have something to do with the briefing icons.

I had a great time playing this, btw. It really made me feel like I was flying around in the dark ages of space travel.

 
Found it a little dissapointing, no shields, and no afterburners to try and evade attacks, if I had 2 on my it'd always get really hard because I had no tools to evade. Feels like a shell of a game with very little going for it, gameplay wise.

Yes, it's perfectly normal.

BTW Spac, if you can't evade, you should practice more often.


Or your could head for your wingmen and let them handle it.

Indeed, The Spac. As far as I can tell, by taking place before and during the Terran-Vasudan War, this is supposed to give you the feeling that you're just a vulnerable pilot, a tiny part of a bigger game. Of course you must achieve certain things but you are not required to change the destiny of the human race. This being completely different from FS and FS2, where you're always a mother****ing superhero who can and must singlehandedly take out two Ravanas with one eye closed.

no shields
Shield technology was stolen from the Shivans during the Great War. Since the Unification War plays about 20 years BEFORE the first shivan incursion, what do you expect?

and no afterburners
Again, the spacecraft isnt as developed as it is in the Great War Era. And even then, not every fighter had afterburners (ok, the Anubis was at that time an outdated desing).
Besides, at least the Shrike and the Mustang Alpha have afterburners.

Actually, I find the limited afterburners that run out after a few seconds of use a cock-up.

I get it, you pulled it off in the engine, congrats, but you've created a massive loophole in where you'll need to introduce (or just generate the obvious disparity) the new magical engines that run on TIME and not fuel (as are the engines of Freespace). That kind of crap suspends disbelief.

No shields and no targeting, I'm all for that though. Rock on.

Spoiler:
I really liked the FS1's no shields > few mission > shields to the no targeting > few missions >  targeting in this one.

I completely deny that I had anything whatsoever to do with that outro cutscene  :P

 
I am all for the no shields and no targeting, the having to sit behind my slow ass ai players while I wait for them to engage just so I don't get blown apart just annoying from a gameplay perspective.

The ships with afterburners didn't seem to work for me then, when I used them it would still sit at 75.

As for evading without afterburners what do you want me to do just fire at 1 ai so it goes into defensive for a sec and then turn and fire tat the other one and turn back so the one on my tail doesn't shoot again and fire a few pot shots. To me this just seems frustrating. Although I still understand what your trying to do I just found it frustrating.

Also I hate how the firepoints are so spread out.

I'm sure most of us can do it with both eyes closed these days. :-P

 
I was working on a campaign called "The other guys" which was a Vasudan story that went from pre freespace 1 (slightly) to the end of vasuda prime and in my pre freespace 1 missions I had the player originally starting in an anubis and after play testing it a bit I found it just didn't end up being fun so I changed it.

I will be trying to continue your campaign in the coming days, cause I like to complete a whole campaign before giving the final verdicts. :)

Might get back to work on that fs1port campaign too we'll see.

  • The GTA expects that every man will do his duty.
Only the Falcon has no afterburner.  The Shrike and Falcon projectile streams converge at 300m in front of the firing ship, mitigating the wide spaced gunpoint issue.

I had thought of a cunning plan for the "how come afterburners use fuel now but not later" thing.  A major advance of the Angel was to be the removal of the restricted afterburners.

I completely deny that I had anything whatsoever to do with that outro cutscene  :P

How about a nice fresh one, then?? :) :) :)

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.

If you can do it one eye closed, you'll complete the mission. If you can do it with both eyes closed, you'll get a medal.

I see what The Spac is getting at, but I really enjoyed the primitive ships and being forced to work with few capabilities. For once having a hostile on my six really felt like a threat. I agree it would've gotten frustrating if it had lasted longer, but targeting (and that oh-so-useful lead indicator) came along at just the right moment.
