Title: Attempt to load the mission failed
Post by: cauldronjoty on October 19, 2021, 01:41:15 pm
Hello there!

I'm using GOG version of Freespace 2, my first time with Knossos.

I just started playing Blue Planet: War in Heaven and I finished the first mission.
- I couldn't see ship models in my targeting monitor (lower left screen)

When I press Play to go to the next mission 2, I get a pop-up window that says "Attempt to load the mission failed."
- tried to verify the files via Knossos -> no effect

Can anyone help me?

Thanks.

You need to run the mod with FSO 21.2.0 to get around the issue.

Thank you so much for pointing me towards the right direction.

There is but one small problem - I have no option to select an older version of FSO.
There are just two lines of "FSO build" in the settings
- Select a valid build
- Mod default

Tried to search for the problem here on Hard-light, no answers.

You may need to install 21.2. Then attempt to set the version under FSO Settings for Blue Planet Complete again.

Visual Guide:

If it seems 21.2 is already installed or you install it and it still doesn't show then you can use the `Browse` button in FSO Settings to explicitly point knossos to the correct executable file.

Problem solved!

Thank you so much for a very well-explained guide how to get it work, jadeddragoon.
I really appreciate it!

(Now if only there was a way to skip the mission 3 Post Meridian)  :D
