McCarthy Campaign Request
I'd like to request that someone resurrect and debug the McCathy Campaign for FSPort. It was a rather interesting campaign where you play as a wingman of Lt McCarthy who defects with him to the PVN near the beginning of FS1. The campaign featured a major branch about half-way through. I only managed to complete one branch the other was bugy and wouldnt let me complete the mission.

Could someone please ressurrect and debug this campaign?

It got a bit weird for me on the escorting freighters at the depot mission when the freighters took some insane amount of time to get to the waypoint...

Re: McCarthy Campaign Request
Not sure where you can find it, actually. It should be on the Volition Watch archives, but the missions section of that site got screwed up so it's harder to find (for me anyway).

Re: McCarthy Campaign Request
I already have it.  I got about 1/2 way through fixing it up (bugfixing, Lightspeed backgrounds)  before bogging down in the volume of issues found in some of these missions.  I therefore prioritized it lower than some of the other things i have to do (TVWP, ST:R, Pandora's Box, Boomerang).
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

Re: McCarthy Campaign Request
I'd have to look at it again; I just recall two or three missions in a row that required extensive changes.  I then despaired of having to make that many changes in the rest of the missions and put it to one side. 

Black Horizon Episode 1 is the FS1 campaign that is probably closest to rerelease.  There is just one mission in this campaign that needs fixing up; but that mission is severely flawed and will take time to correct.

Re: McCarthy Campaign Request
I converted the Mccarthy Campaign over to use the FSPort and made some tweaks to it.  It is posted on Hades Combine in a zip file with some other FS1 converted campaign files.

Normal people believe that if it isn't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it isn't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
The difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers is:
Mechanical Engineers build weapons.  Civil Engineers build targets
An optimist sees the glass half full; the pessimist sees it half empty. An engineer sees that the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Re: McCarthy Campaign Request
I have here created a hybrid of my version and Macfie's.  The first half dozen or so missions were edited by me, and the rest taken from Macfie.  Macfie's version does not have backgrounds, and is often missing music, whereas I had completed that part for all missions.   Therefore I added the backgrounds and music to Macfie's versions and zipped the whole thing up.  If you guys would really like a bug free version, please play and post feedback so that any issues can be fixed.
