Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
I'd like to confirm one thing:

We put the "hermes core" file stuff directly into our FS2 folder?
I ask because I've always been told you never put campaign/mod stuff into the main FS2 folder...only into the campaign subfolder.

Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
The hermes core 7z has a subfolder called Wing Commander Saga in it.  If you extract that 7z into your FS2 folder all the files will go into that subfolder.  You can also use Knossos and not have to worry about how and where it needs to be installed! :)

Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
Well, since this is a TC, you could put everything in a completely separate folder, extract FSO there and then make a new wxLauncher profile, if you're still using that.

I only have the Installer right now on my computer.  Can I have Knossos on there too?  (I.e., I know I don't use both at the same time, but will both being there be a problem?)

 
Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
I have WCS in a folder and being used by wxLauncher with no problems. I also have Knossos installed and it works there as well

 
Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
At least I can now play this TC with all axes recognised on my joystick (thanks to SDL).
Nice work ;)

Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
This is an intriguing development, to be sure.

I admit that I have a weakness for Wing Commander things, so seeing Saga given a new lease of life means happy thoughts in my book.

 
Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
Can you ask somewhere, if the WCSaga Deutsch Team is interested to make a Knossos compatible release of their translation? I think that would be nice move, because i also have released my translations on it (except for BtA, because i am still working on a new major release) :).

I'm not sure whether or not Luke, the leader of WCS Deutsch and WCS Plus, is here on HLP. But he can be contacted over at wcnews.com, wingcenter.net and wcsaga.org. :)

Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
Any reason why hermes effects are not packed into VP? :nervous:

Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
Effects can't be constrained in a vp, they have to live free... uh, link fixed....

Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
Could this be put on the Installer or will it only be available on Knossos (or manual installation)?

Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
Knossos or manual for now.  It's still beta.

Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
Loving that this is still getting some attention.

Is the utter disinterest that your allies show the missile barrage in the 4th Vega mission with the Valkyrie squadron fixable or a result of the changes? They shoot one or two missiles and then stop completely.

Also on the convoy protecting mission following, the landing sequence doesn't want to trigger so the mission won't end. : /

Edit: I've tried twice now and there is no landing sequence but the standard fly in to the bay is also switched off so it is not possible to complete the Convoy Vega mission now.

I remember that mission was actually a lot easier when I played it on High difficulty rather than Medium, due to your wingmen's increased intelligence.  I don't know what it's like in the rereleased version, but you might try bumping up the difficulty just for that one mission.

You probably should specify which problem that is, the landing one or the missile barrage one.

Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
The missile barrage missions in the original never really worked right due to the retail bug which made missiles invulnerable for 25% of their lifetime.  I can look and see if there are some unexpected wingman orders in there. I'll check the convoy mission landing as well.

Huh... I was not aware of that bug but that would explain why missile shooting missions are so incredibly annoying.

Re: BETA RELEASE: Wing Commander Saga for FSO
I pushed out a small patch on Knossos to fix some persona issues and the landing sequence in mission 9.
