Issues with the Karnak / Mission after "Secrets Reborn" ?
So, those of you with the FSPort Media VPs enabled may have been frustrated when trying to load the PVI Karnak in the tech room, or the game may seem to freeze when loading a certain ST:R mission.

All you need is patience.

The Karnak is a very large, very complex model, and the first time (and ONLY the first time) you use it FreeSpace needs to cache some data for it.

This only happens the first time you load it. Give it a moment and all will be well. Some users have said it takes several minutes to build the index buffer, so please, be patient.

This is not a bug, it is a known and unfortunate side effect of having such amazing models in the game. We're working on including the index buffer file in the next FSPort MVP release, but until then, just hang on and rest assured it will only happen once.

Good day.

I see the thread title and I go "aw ****, not another one." Glad I was wrong or I would've done something I wouldn't have been proud of. :D

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

Post a log file. See the support FAQ if you don't know how to generate one - it's pretty simple.

The name for the pilot file you're trying to load is too long. Names must be shorter than 27 characters
