 :yes:
I like it a lot. Good atmosphere, good music, and a very unique approach. Excellent. The only item I would like to change is the messaging, this creation would be even better with voice acting.

Great Job! THANK YOU  :yes:

CKid, Mongoose, Commander Zane: Ok, I screwed up on that event. Turns out end-mission won't work after the dialog pops up in that scenario.

Thus... a second patch!

The main download has also been updated. I hope no one had the campaign ruined by that issue... :(

[Wolf]Maverick: I have no idea what's going on with that... I'd say disable motion debris in the launcher. I never touched any of the nebula graphics files.

Re: RELEASE: Vassago's Dirge
If you look really hard, it seems that one of those squares shows some random texture..... An fs2_open.log would help.

Other than that, make sure all drivers are up to date.

Looks like the Nephthys texture.

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

My bad :D

Windmills was of course a little revolution by itself.

Re: RELEASE: Vassago's Dirge
Holy cow, I massively wrecked the whole ending system with Patch 2. WTF?

Patch 3 corrects this. Please get that if you have the second patch or the third download.  :(

Re: RELEASE: Vassago's Dirge
Okay, that ending was completely worth the wait.  That's a really unsettling prospect... :nervous:

 
Re: RELEASE: Vassago's Dirge
Still not having gotten the good ending (waiting for .12), let me speculate:

Hi all. I'm getting an error? Not the first error I've got since I got this version of the VPs. I think it is my fault in some way but I dunno. Actually there are several. (See below). I'll paste them as they appeared.

And then I get "Attempt to load mission failed". What did I/it do wrong?

I saw the true ending, it left me "whoa, my graphic card can't handle that, I'm at 1 frame per 4 second", and then I was like "but there is nothing in my screen that looks like it would make me lag, wtf".
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Re: RELEASE: Vassago's Dirge
Spoiler:
What all endings are there?  I got the ending where I was picked up at 2% health in the spacesuit by the transport.  Is that the true or the false ending, and how do I get to the other endings?  I flew towards the green dot in the nebula, which was a deimos corvette or something, I kept flying around the green dot, and then one in capella, I jumped out.  Was I supposed to get blasted by the supernova?  Seriously, someone please post the endings in spoiler tags like this:

1)
2)
3)

So I can know what endings everyone is talking about here.
