Re: RELEASE - Shrouding the Light
Uh, might be a stupid question but where is this "data/effects" folder that you're supposed to put the nebula backgrounds into? I have no directory anywhere by that name.

Re: RELEASE - Shrouding the Light
I see. Well that -is- simple. I've been reading through the thread and it seems that installing this campaign is quite problematic. At the moment I'm trying to install the weapons pack and the readme on the file only says to put ani/images into data/effects, models into data/models, tables into data/tables (I assume I create all of these folders in the STL directory?). The problem is that I can't differentiate between the images and the effects and the models, so I have no idea what goes where. Are the models the TGA files only?

 
Re: RELEASE - Shrouding the Light
Any ideas as to where I can get the voice acting file? The link on the STL website is dead. Thanks

I stuck a copy on Filefront for you.

Anyone know if Hades Combine allow an upload of this size (~8MB)?

Re: RELEASE - Shrouding the Light
Thanks for the file...BUT I can't get the voices to play. First I tried just putting the BR_STLv.vp file into my Shrouding the light folder, but that did not work. So then I extracted all the individual voice files and put them in data\voices\briefing, command_briefings, special, and debriefing respectively. Still no luck. I'm using fs_port3_0_4 and SCP 3.6.9, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Nope. You COULD just link it via the add downloads though.

Re: RELEASE - Shrouding the Light
I think the was mentioned as an SCP bug -- the mission files have a .wav extension, but these voice files are .ogg.  Open one mission and change the extension in notepad and see if it then works.

Re: RELEASE - Shrouding the Light
wow, stl was voice acted? wish i had known that before i played it without it

 
Re: RELEASE - Shrouding the Light
Thank you again, the speech files work fine now. They are supposed to just be Vasudan right, without the English translation? And once I eventually get all the mission files fixed from .wav to .ogg do you want me to send them to you or post them here, since I don't know how to post to filefront or anything. Or is there already a version out there that has the .ogg extensions in the mission files.

The thing with the .wav-extension is quite annoying, but okay. I will look afters this for myself. Anyhow, it would be more... customer-friendly to fix this in the next version. And why is there only vasudan babbling? Yes, I know, the player is vasudan, too. But I thought the meaning of voiceacting is that you not have to read everthing for your own.

So, enough complaining for now. ;) My review follows as soon as I have finished the campaign.

Re: RELEASE - Shrouding the Light
So, the voiceacting worked perfectly. Thank you, Tinman. No to my review - finally.

All in all the Campaign was very, very good as said here before. The characters and dialogues are worked out as lovely as we know from Homesick. That's what I love most in your campaigns, BR. The cuscenes were okay, too, but not so very special imo. The, erm, second one iirc where those GTA cruisers fight the Terran rebels was a bit too long in my eyes. But so much the better was the one were the Roc warps out letting the terran cruiser and its escort alone against the HoL. Generally, the mistrust between Terrans and Vasudans, their attitude agains each other  and the political situation were presented in a brilliant way - even better than in the FS1 main campaign imo.

What I did not like so much was how the strategical situation changes from worst to good. That was a bit too fast for my liking. At the end of one mission the Hammer is only a stone's throw from total victory and at the end of the next one it's already in the defense. I don't understand anyway why the vasudans or terrans didn't send reinforcements earlier. One or two additional bomber missions would've been nice, too.

I remember one litte bug: In the second last mission I've been spotted as a spy after I accomplished the primary goals. But was able to proceed anyway.

Lust but not least: A word to the voice acting. Did I hear right that the Vasudans have all been spoken by only one person? The stresses were really strange in some points. E.g. "terraaans" or these long pauses before someone is addressed by name. But altogether it was okay.

:)

A word to your review: i could not have said this better myself.  :)

Well, the vasudan voice acting is a vasudan-terran translation computer, not "voice acting" like the terran voices  :D

so that a terran could sit in a vasudan cockpit  ;7 

and you know the vasudan-terran translation computers in the 24th century need improvement   :nod:
