Brave man, aren't you? Get rid of the adv vp's.

I see you also use AI mod without rebalance mod. Flak's gonna hurt you, bad.

Yes they should but what do I care if he doesn't use "blueplanet" folder for the AoA either.

I've never had issues with the adv vps, and I don't think it's gonna start now. I just don't play with full options, and my GPU won't bother with normal maps that it can't run anyway.

I see you also use AI mod without rebalance mod. Flak's gonna hurt you, bad.
I plan on seeing how playable it is first. I've not been far enough in the campaign yet to fire a single shot anyway.

You're missing the patch for the MediaVPs. Go to the MediaVPs release thread and download it (step 6).
I've never needed this patch before neither. I'm gonna test if it fixes that though.

EDIT : the patch didn't fixed it, but removing the bp-adv vps did. Interesting issue, I'm gonna browse the vps and see if I can come up with a personal fix to play with the advanced vp without this bug.

You need the patch.

However, your issue is not with the MediaVPs Advanced BPs, but the Blue Planet ones. Pull those and the skybox error should go away.

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Uh... is it possible to spoiler the image in MatthTheGeek's post? If this is anyone's first time playing BP, that might be a bit of unwanted info.

Edit: actually it's not so revealing as I had thought (thanks to it being so buggy). Needless to say, I've got a BUNCH of .7z files downloading simultaneously (all with names starting with "bp-"  ;) ), and although the image in his post hadn't finished loading, I was pretty sure what I was going to see once the top 1/10 of it loaded.

Just to be sure:
If I use the advanced core, I still need the "normal" core as well, right?

So much for business, on to the cheering  ;)

Woohoooooooooooooooooooo!

This will continue as soon as I finished downloading and finally got to playing  :D

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Universal Truth- Briefing stage 2 (I think) had no voice. Also the music disappeared after the cutscene.

And the mission after, whatever it's called. There was the happy music to start with and then it went away at the appropriate time but wasn't replaced by anything, don't know if this is intentional or not.

I have all the required and advanced vps. Using 3.6.12.

By the way, this campaign rocks even more now, it felt so fresh.

Might be a code bug.  Try pausing and unpausing the game.

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
I am so loving this so far! Up to the mission where we meet the sleeper ship so far, great voice acting people!!!!! The cutscenes seem to flow much better now!! Thank you for releasing this just as I get an upgraded computer! Perfect timing to enjoy this, although  seem to have a problem with the ADV stuff, as soon as I put those in the folder I get error messages about a missing capital ship!

Fantastic work, well done to all involved, I'm very impressed!

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Did I say I was off to play? Well... not quite. Instead I spent the last hour or so in the Techroom.
And I really like what you did there. All the backstory and information on the weapons is just a great asset!

The only thing I didn't like too much was the naming of two turrets "Super Houndstooth mk2" and "Super Djinn mk2". Apart from not being a fan of "super x" in the first place super shouldn't be in the same name as mk2 (unless super x mk2 is an upgrade of super x).
But this is just a tiny little nitpick in the vast amoung of information stored there ;)

And this time I will really play!

Just give me a minute to re-insert the adv stuff into the folder and create a log, although I suspect it is soemthing to do with a corrupted d/l of the adv stuff.

EDIT*** The problem seems to have disappeared now so no error log to report, it may be because this is a new rig to me, i'm still having a no disk error each time i  start the launcher which i have already reported. I seem to just be having a few teething glitches with this new rig!

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
PURE EPIC!!!! This directors cut is just amazing, just finished it. Love the new cutscenes, effects, the voice acting, you have got amazing female voice actors there. I like the new vishnan textures and htl models.

The only problem i have had is randomly loosing all sound and music but it seems to fix its self if i quit the game and restart it, not a major issue.
