Re: MjnMixael's HD Mainhalls (Released)
I like where this is going.

Puhleaaaaaase make an alternate joke overlay Easter egg for the main screen.   I don't know what, anything from BSOD to brazzers logo would work.

I can definitely do custom cheats for non-clickable things.. I've never considered if that would work for clickable things, too. Hmm.

Aquitaine is released on Knossos.



This is the first mainhall I've done with custom cheats (surprisingly...). Try shivans4dinna and 6eomod out to see what happens.

It's the mainhall we need, not the mainhall we deserve.

The new Aquitaine mainhall looks awesome and I look forward to trying it in the near future after I download 4.4 MVPs.


I have a question though:  is it possible someday we could get a HD FS2 Vasudan mainhall someday too?

So its a special version of the Aquitaine mainhall that appears when you're in nebula missions.

I have installed the latest version of your mainhalls via Knossos. But they are not shown in Blue Planet oder Renegade Resurgance.

The mainhall-files are checkboxed in the menu (costumize) but no effect.

Re: MjnMixael's HD Mainhalls (Released)
First let me say these are superb!

Unfortunately, when running them I am running into what I suspect is a performance problem. Everything is slow and jerky, as if my PC is struggling to run them at a reasonable FPS. Going by the videos it is not supposed to be like this. Any idea what might be causing it?

FYI my PCs specs are:
3.9 GHz AMD CPU
16GB RAM at 1600 MHZ
Nvidia GTX970 GPU

Not a beast by any means, but it should be more than powerful enough to run a main hall properly.

Any advice greatly appreciated  :)

I was just informed that someone is trying to covert these to apngs for an updated version. I request they don't. I don't want multiple versions of my work floating around.

Mods need to specifically choose to use these. They don't just work automatically.

Best guess is hard drive read speed. But that's just a shot in the dark.

The person in question is doing that because he is running into engine problems with total number of files loaded by a mod on his mods, because the overwhelming majority is taken up by tens of thousands of mainhall animation frames.

Re: MjnMixael's HD Mainhalls (Released)
You know, one of the major turn-offs from making FS-related content is actually the expectation to keep up with this rat's tail of luxury items, the summit of which are these mainhalls.

This may sound I am disappraging the passion and the workmanship that mjn summoned to make these, but rather to question if they need to be a neccessary inclusion in any mod at all.

Also, allow me to add that they are going to submit them to the FSU team so that FSU can release it as a fix to that technical issue.  They are not trying to release an independent version.
