Well yes. I must admit that sometimes that LR's decision weren't really moral, but they just fit with the context and atmosphere. While all factions are technically fully separated, the atmosphere is that of a civil war IMO, and with multiple factions, to boot. Like I said, I've never been shocked by the actions and orders or LR Command.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
Will it help or harm the TVWP in any way if it's connected with the MediaVPs via a mod.ini?

Works fine for me with mediavps, but I can't remember if it's on by default or if I added it someday to see if it changed something.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
In the first mission of act two I had no music what-so-ever. On the other missions I had no bug so far (there was one crash with only the standard windows error message on mission two, but I couldn't reproduce it).
I didn't yet try to link TVWP with the MVPs. I thought I rather play it through once, before I start experimenting.
Spoiler:
I just managed to blow myself up with a fuel tank in the raid on the UNEs cargo depot.

One thing that annoyed me a bit throughout the missions so far is the objectives window on the left of the screen (or lack thereoff). In most missions it's simply not there. And for some reason it shows the text "Primary Objective" in green below the actual objectives in the mission were you go up against the Rex.
Another thing I'd like to suggest is, putting the carrier you are supposed to land on into the escort list, once you are cleared to land. It is quite a bother to have to switch through 20+ targets untill you get a lock onto your carrier when you could just hit the E key once instead.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
Well,if targeting is bothering you you can always use the hotkeys(F3) and give the carrier a specific Function key:)!
Hate the ads at Mediafire.
Skip most of them by adding "#2" at the end of link!

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
How funny. I was doing some FS2_Open iPhone wallpapers a few days back and thinking about TVWP's interface.

I'll clear some space for this new version of TVWP later, once my sister's done calling me via Skype.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
Oh, and the insides of the Kestrel are EMPTYYYYYYYYY

Yes they are! :lol: My mind just yelled at that, and I have spent at least an hour looking at the Kestrel from all angles. At some angles, the ship was completely transparent from one side, and solid from the other. And the problem didn't show up on the opposite side. It was weird, and a bit funny.

I get this on the Kestrel too. I think i know what that is, and its not a problem with your graphics card, its a little model bug that can happen. Some graphics engines (such as UDK where i encountered it a lot) when working with textured surfaces can only texture one side of their skin (maya calls it the 'face normal'); the other side of the surface thus has no texturing and is not rendered, and if seen in game can be seen through on that side. If you have the face normal facing into the model, then you wont see the texture as its rendering on the inside of the model's skin and not the outside.

If this is the cause, my guess would be that the invisible faces on the model (which would be the small ones within that gap between the main chassis and the wings) have their normals facing inward and not outward, and the game engine can only render one side of the skin. Its just a matter of reversing each buggy face's face normal in the modeller (in Maya IIRC its an option in the 'normals' menu under the 'polygons' tab, but i'm not sure about other modellers).

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
I just noticed that it's been about a week since the release, but nobody got around to highlighting it.
I think TVWP Act II release fully deserves a highlight.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release

Or is it disabled by default?

It's because the TVWP team figured that 300 years in the future. Basic targetting is too advanced too have  :rolleyes:

How does it block your view? It's transparent.
To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
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

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
I get a parsing error message relating to the communications system on the Jovian cruiser if I replay the bad timing mission.  However it only does it if you hit the replay button.  If you go to the ready room and start the mission you don't get the error message.
Normal people believe that if it isn't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it isn't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
The difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers is:
Mechanical Engineers build weapons.  Civil Engineers build targets
An optimist sees the glass half full; the pessimist sees it half empty. An engineer sees that the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
