For your first run we suggest First Run! Or Second Run if you feel cocky.

I just noticed a new version of BP has been released on novembre 2015... i'm redownloading first :)

 
Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Also, 12 ****ing dragons vs 4 recon fighters is a ridiculous fight, so if you are still having problems, I suggest evading them until backup arrives.

 
Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
I really love them :) Its just their speed or they have better A.I. ?

 
Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Actually, if you take a full loadout of Balors and Tornadoes (wingmen too), it shouldn't be a problem to kill at least a half of them on Normal(Medium) before Zeta arrives. I was able to clear the area before the backup arrived, without losing Nehru.  I suppose ordering the wingmen to attack the enemy might help.

In The Great Preservers Sacred Keeper pushes Knossos, rather than fly through it.
Both are in the same collision group so I don't know what's wrong. :nervous:

So the Sacred Keeper enjoyed christmas too much and has grown too fat to fit through the portal? :lol:

Sorry, but the timing of this bug turning up shortly after christmas and new years was just too funny. :p

 
Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Nah, Keeper ate too much Shivans long before Christmas. :p
But this topic reminded me about bug, so I thought to report it here.

Is this with 3.7.4, or a recent Nightly Build (or both)?

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Sorry for posting so late, but i just recently replayed and recorded everything to upload to YT.

Im the only one who would have loved to see the Hades of the other universe? It was supposedly being constructed in Delta Serpentis, as a wreck or maybe the Hades could have served as the Sanctuary instead of that modified Orion. (whiout beams).

As a personal opinion, i would have loved to see the Lucifer going down just by the combined firepower of the modern GTVA fleet, whiout having to resort to anything "weird".

Also i was thinking, the Sathanas that gets destroyed, it is the same one that is destroyed on FS2?

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
I seriously doubt it's the same Sathanas, given that there are at least dozens of them. The whole subversion with the Sathanas in FS2 was that it was not a unique "hivemind" ship, unlike the Lucifier, and that there isn't a weakness the GTVA can exploit to defeat the Shivans.

I'm not actually sure if the Sanctuary was based on Sol or elsewhere. If it was based in Sol, I'm surprised that it managed to escape without being destroyed. It's been a while since I've played AoA.

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
I like to think it is the counterpart to the FS2 sathanas.   

Also (I might be incorrectly remembering) the sanctuary made a run for it from the far side of earth while the escape pod filmed the Lucifer attacking earth's last defenders.

Thank you! The fix will be in the next BP version we push to Knossos.

BP gets updates? As in like, acts?

 
Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Uh, I would presume he means regular update. Bugfixes, enhancements, etc.

Oh, okay. Didn't think there was bugs to be fixed.

FSO will always find a way to break something. ;)

 
Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
I would quite like it if there was a small update to make the FSO requirement for BP on Knossos allow versions newer than the specified, too
