Re: Between the Ashes Development Blog
Looking forward to play BtA, early congrats for making it to release! Keep up the good work overall, devs and testers.
I'm all about getting the most out of games, so whenever I discover something very strange or push the limits, I upload them here:

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress to more pain."
- George Orwell

You should all be getting hyped for BtA
Between the Ashes, is an amazingly polished, fully voice acted, super campaign. The missions are incredibly varied, the enemy you fight is intelligent, there's a star system map that you can check at any point in the campaign, which gets updated as the campaign progresses. It's overall an amazing campaign that will comfortably take its place amongst the greatest mods for Freespace out there.

Ya'll should get excited for this.
Urutorahappī!!

Release is still on track! If it weren't for testers, this campaign would have been completely broken on release day. Spoon deserves your gratitude! (And mine!)

Re: Between the Ashes Development Blog
I started packing up the rest of the files this morning, except for Core (in case there are needed fixes to the missions tonight).

I'm glad many of your are looking forward to it! I hope you all find it enjoyable. I had to learn a lot of FREDing and FSO modding to pull this off (and had a crap-ton of help!).. so if it does suck, at least I learned a lot! :)

Just in case: you did fix the HUD issue right? and did you add the new Apollo model?

Re: Between the Ashes Development Blog
Buuuuh, found a last minute mission breaking bug that requires another BtA1_Root update! :(

I was really hoping to avoid unnecessary downloads... but I guess since you already have Maps, Anims, Music, etc.. it's not so bad.

Re: Between the Ashes Development Blog
There was a BtA update on Knossos. I have to download the whole mod again, even there do not seem a difference in VP size.

So any new changes or was that a simple fake download of the same version with a different version number?

If you want to know, what my nickname means, -chen is a german diminutive term, so you can translate Novachen as something like Little Nova or Novalet.
Even my original meaning of this name is more like "Sweet pretty deadly (Super)Nova" ;).

That should be corrected in the next version of Knossos, but yes, it was a real update.

<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> **** 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!?

And what is part of this update exactly? If there were some file changes it would be good to know, because some of them could affect my translation, so that i have to update that also :).

Re: Between the Ashes Development Blog
It's just an update to one or two mission files. I did request some new translation features that should make so your translation can be added to BtA properly based on our PMs about it a while back.
