Re: RELEASE: Dusk Wars Act II
Sorry to necro this thread, but the link to DW Act II appears to be inoperative. Can anyone provide a working link please?

Moreover, the DL link on freespacemods.net for DW Act I always stops at ~390 MB/680 MB for me. Is this normal?

Re: RELEASE: Dusk Wars Act II
Don't know about your download stopping, mine worked fine just now.

Confirming the dead Act II link though.

Re: RELEASE: Dusk Wars Act II
Not sure if anyone is still keeping up with this mod, but I am having a problem with both Dust Wars I and Dusk Wars II on Knossos.  I've never seen a problem quite like this before.  I tried running the debug build, and this is the spew I got.

Interestingly, whether I am in the debug build or the regular build, I'm not getting past the slash screen before I'm sent back to my desktop.  There is an instance of FS2Open still running on the task bar.  Whenever I click on it, I get an error message popping up asking me to either debug or exit.  But I cannot click anywhere on that window, let alone one of the buttons!  If I try, my screen flashes and the window disappears back into the taskbar.

Weird.  Something wrong with my setup?

Interestingly, whether I am in the debug build or the regular build, I'm not getting past the slash screen before I'm sent back to my desktop.  There is an instance of FS2Open still running on the task bar.  Whenever I click on it, I get an error message popping up asking me to either debug or exit.  But I cannot click anywhere on that window, let alone one of the buttons!  If I try, my screen flashes and the window disappears back into the taskbar.
That is a known SDL issue.  You could revert to an older version but the easiest solution is running in windowed mode.

Re: RELEASE: Dusk Wars Act II
Wait, people are still interested in this?

Absolutely.  I'd love to see that DW3 someday that you talked about previously.

 
Re: RELEASE: Dusk Wars Act II
Sure!  Being uploaded to Knossos makes it so darn easy to try something new there's little excuse not to.  I've been working my way through quite a large back-catalog of campaigns I didn't have time for previously.  You know.  Bit by bit.  This had the sound of something a bit more novel than yet another post-Capella campaign, so sure I'm interested!  Especially since you went to the trouble of making a sequel.

Well, your determination has swayed me. I will be removing Dusk Wars from Knossos pending a refurbish and both Acts will be reuploaded at a later date: modernized and fixed of any nuisances, bugs and other unsavorery and cringy problems with its gameplay and story.

Re: RELEASE: Dusk Wars Act II
Awesome news! 

Does this mean that further down the road there's a chance for the DWA3 you talked about?

Perhaps, I won’t make any promises though.

Re: RELEASE: Dusk Wars Act II
On the mission "Enemy Of My Enemy Is My Friend" I ran into a technical error.


It seems you're not allowed to change the default ship for that mission.  I tried changing to the Aether assault fighter but the game crashed after I tried to click the button to begin the mission.  It's a pity because the Aether is much better than the interceptor that's default for that mission.

Which version are you playing? Knossos or the original?

It was ^^. Made even some fixes and balancing changes for some missions back then, so that it is the same versions i used in my Video playthrough (surprisingly it is still available here). But because of some compatibility errors which most had in reasons in Knossos back then, i took it down at least a half year ago and forgot to reupload it after most of the problems were fixed  :D.

Is one of my releases broken or not working? Please send a PM here, on Discord at Novachen#2334 or on Twitter @NovachenFS2, a public tweet or write a reply in my own release threads here on HLP, because these are the only threads i am still participating in.

Original.  Though the problem seemed to fix itself in later missions and eventually the Aether was selectable again (in other words, for a few missions after that the Aether defacto couldn't be selected but eventually you could play as it after a few missions).

Sorry to necro, but is Dusk wars act 2 available somewhere? The link on the first page is not working for me. On another note, is dusk wars going to be returning to knossos?

It is presently not available and Dusk Wars won't be returning to Knossos for the foreseeable future.

Re: RELEASE: Dusk Wars Act II
So basically, if we have a copy/download of DW2 that works for the most part...hold on to it?

If you want. Due to present IRL obligations I cannot divert any time to the production of a Total Conversion mod and I have no plans to modify Dusk Wars on Knossos to work properly.
