Re: FreeSpace Port 3.6 + FSPort Media VPs Release!
Hmm.  I thought I had added the option to download them from the main hall mod on Knossos, but I didn't, and now I remember why.  They're not packaged as VPs, they're loose files.  I'll need to package up the current versions of the main halls, upload them, and add the links to the FSO Installer.

I haven't tested this thoroughly, so it may be symptomatic of a larger problem, but Tsunamis are occasionally having trouble acquiring targets. Most of the time they lock and fire okay, but sometimes they report that a target is out of range, even when it clearly isn't. Using the July 3rd nightly.

We have returned to continue our purification of this galaxy. It is again your turn to be crushed beneath the great force that is the Antaran army. All your petty squabbling with the other beings in this galaxy is meaningless. The Antaran fleet will destroy you all, one by one. You may not surrender. You cannot win. Your only option is death.

Nothing changed in the Port, so this must be a recent bug.  Can you try the recent stable releases to narrow down when the bug was introduced?

I haven't been able to reproduce this on FSO 21.2.

That's useful, thanks.

Can you narrow it down using nightly builds between 21.2 (on May 2) and July 3?  Use the binary search method - so start with a nightly around June 2 and work from there.

Based on my testing, the culprit appears to be the June 24th nightly, which definitely contains the bug; from what I can tell, the June 23rd build does not.

The changelog for that particular nightly shows changes to the weapons and HUD code, so maybe something got borked.

Thanks very much.  Hopefully that should make it easy to track down.

Indeed it did.  Asteroth/Baezon figured it out already:

Thanks for reporting the bug, and thanks also for tracking down the nightly build. :yes:
