This is normal.  Your loadouts are pre-assigned for every mission.

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
Is there a way to make Cardinal Spear use the hd models for the Apollo, Athena etc. from the recent fsport release? The mod itself seems to work fine with 3.6.12 and the latest fsport but it won't use the aforementioned models.

You'd need to open up the Cardinal Spear mod.ini and add the name of your FSPort MediaVPs as the first entry on the "secondarylist" line. And make sure that you have the 3.6.12 MediaVPs and that their folder is also included in the "secondarylist" line.

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
Tried it, works fine except the GTF Angel shows up as the Valkyrie. I have the following in the mod.ini file:

[multimod]
secondrylist = fsport_mediavps,fsport,mediavps_3612;

Weirdly enough if I ran the fsport_mediavps as the current mod with cardinalspear in it's mod.ini file it brought up all hd models including the hd Angel, but upon the loading screen for the first mission it states there are 7 ship classes missing and playing the mission turns Epsilon wing of bombers into Ulysses. I can play the mod as it is but I'd really like to be able to fly the Angel, is there a way to remedy this?

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
The Angel scout fighter in Cardinal Spear uses the Valkyrie model.  The Angel is a two gun fighter, but the missions were created and balanced for a 4 gun fighter.  Presumably the campaign was created before any Angel model actually existed.  
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: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
Makes sense, I was trying a lot of different setups in mod.ini to get the Angel in and every time it was there it would reak the mission, shame I quite like flying older fighters. Good campaign though, I'm enjoying it.  :yes:

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
It looks like both Vega and Sirius were completely occupied by the Vasudans in Cardinal Spear judging from their military strength in these systems. However it was clearly stated in the 1st command briefing in FS2 that Vega was the Terran's "new home" (after the GTVA had lost contact with Sol) and Sirius was one of the NTF original strongholds (which means that the majority of Terran military forces based in Sirius had defected to the NTF and Sirius should had been the Terran system by then). So have these systems been captured by the GTA after the events of Cardinal Spear or is it simply a non-canon campaign? (or maybe I get something wrong?)

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
I don't remember it being stated that Vega was somehow the new Terran home, but in any case Cardinal Spear is definitely not canon.

When the explosion of the Lucifer collapsed the jump node to the Sol system and severed all contact with Earth, Command transferred the Bastion to the 4th Fleet in Vega. Since then we've called Vega our home. Now Command has de-commissioned the Bastion and reassigned its squadrons to the newer Hecate destroyers. We'll be joining the GTD Aquitaine, flagship of the 3rd Fleet, Capella.
Home of 4th Fleet, not Terrans.

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
Also, Cardinal Spear was released before FS2, so it couldn't have foreseen FS2's plot developments.

Oh. I haven't think about this though this should be pretty obvious. My bad.

Nevertheless, this is a good campaign, one of my favorite user-made mini-campaigns so far.

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
Hello. I think every download links in this thread are dead. Maybe you want to update the first page with the freespacemods link http://freespacemods.net/download.php?view.241
Working on the Freespace 2 spanish translation. In case you want to play the game in castillian, click here. You'll need some spanish there, though, sorry :p

If you want your mod/campaign translated to spanish, please PM me or send me an e-mail message.

I could translate from spanish to english too, if you want, but it wouldn't be perfect, not at all. For spanish->english translations comes better an english native with spanish knowledge.

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
It would help to have a little more information to solve this.  Remember that the Cairo must be disarmed and disabled to succeed at the mission.

1) At what point does the mission hang up?
2) Do you get a message from Delta 1 (or Command) saying the Cairo is disarmed?
3) Does the mission log (viewable by hitting F4) say the Cairo is disarmed?
