Released Campaigns to Knossos Project

(1/7) > >>

Horrible name for a project, but I'm a little hungover so whatever.  :lol:

HLP has a massive history of campaigns spanning all levels of quality and length, but they are all a distinct part of what this community is. My goal is to take that history and make it readily available on Knossos.

In making my list, my only rule was that the campaign had to be greater than 1 mission.

This is not FSCRP. The todo list for each campaign's Knossos conversion is pretty short. The goal here is to make as few creative decisions as possible, but make each campaign playable without major errors.

* Convert the files to a Knossos mod structure
* Fix obvious bugs with the modpack (not necessarily the missions, but that may be included on some level depending on mod rot) and get it launchable on a modern FSO build
* Research HLP to find the appropriate release thread and author details to link in the Knossos metadata
* Provide an appropriate Knossos style mod image and banner
When I started gathering old campaigns not on Knossos, I did not expect to find as many as I did. So.. that said, if anyone wants to lend a hand then I'd appreciate it very much. I have all the files (except for 4 noted below). My plan is to setup an SVN repository for easy tracking of versions and changes; especially since many of these campaigns have gotten multiple versions over the years and it's not always clear which one is the most recent.

Here's a complete list of what I have. If any of these are already on Knossos and I missed it, then let me know. Also, if you are the author of one of these campaigns, speak up. Let me know if you have updated files and/or don't want it re-released and/or would prefer to re-release it yourself or whatever.

Campaigns I could not find the files for

* Cerberus Emergence (Has a forum on Sectorgame that I cannot access because I don't have an account. It's possible it never made a release. I found a file called Cerberus Emergence Music Pack 2, though. EDIT: See below. Looks like it had a demo release at one point back in 2009. Maybe someone happens to still have the files.)

Eh, the name is right to the point so not all bad.  I would love to have some new campaigns to play anyway

That’s a good initiative.

Actually, wasn’t there a first act to the old 158th squadron that was released? The very old mod featuring atmospheric combat in a unification setting? That might possibly benefit…

Workings of the Warp was only released as Demo,  The Knights of Alrukabi (Demo-only), Syrk (Demo) are missing too

Sorry. My mistake.
