Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
kick ass, this was one of those campaigns from back in the fs1 days that i really liked and was one of the reasons i started modding in the first place.
I can no longer sit back and allow communist infiltration, communist indoctrination, communist subversion, and the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
Played through some of it, and I especially love the destruction of the Karnak (I forget what it was called).

But I'm not liking the Gorgon's weapons. I keep killing myself with my own weapons...  :sigh:

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
I loved the campaign especially the last mission.  Two problems though.
1. No matter what I did I could not get rid of the striations on the planets.  I tried the low resolution planets that Lobo posted, I went back to the low resolution original planets but it did not remove the striations.
2. In the first mission of cardinal spear - Vega there was no voice for the first stage of the command briefing.  there was a voice file for it and it appeared to have that file in the mission for the briefing but it didn't work.
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.

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
Now that you mentioned it, I also had the issue with that particular command briefing. The voice file is in the voice vp, and there seems to be a reference to it in the mission file but it just doesn't play. It would be excellent if some wise mentor could look into the subject.

Strange.

What kind of graphics does your PC have on it? Perhaps your graphics card is unable to handle even 2048x2048 textures. I guess you could try halving the texture width and height one more time, but at that point the resolution of the textures will already be quite bad...

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
By original planets, do you mean the old disco ball planets with super low resolution textures?

This sounds like a problem for taylor.

We will be releasing an updated  voice pack shortly to get rid of a couple of the synthesized voices that were included do to technical troubles with some voice files anyway.  That briefing must be encoded in a format unreadable by FSO.

If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.

Yes the old disco ball planets

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
Wow,

that was a great campaign ...

Especially the last mission was sooo WOW. (once I finally found one of the damn doors ...)

It even felt a bit like another well know SciFi universe ;-) ...

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
I have this problem with the second mission of Cardinal Spear: Vega.

The destroier that I have to protect is just a fighter. Ergo I can't protect it... is it just me having this problem?

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear

1) there is no way to open a .vp file on a mac with macos x, or none i know that is working
    if your on a intel mac you have to use Windoze with Parallels or on a PPC mac Win with an emulation

2) this campaign seems not to work correct on a mac, but i protected the GTD Agamemnon (a GTF Ulysses on my mac) with all fighters   ;7 , also on the third mission destroying Ta'chirik Ma'ang (sp?) station

i cannot choose another ship and i cannot change the weapon loadout, so the other campaign is unplayable because i cannot mine the jumppoint  :(

Tinman, you have the same problem (the Agamemnon is a GTF Ulysses) as sixlaneve.  Look on Karajorma's FAQ for the solution.

I wish to have an Intel Mac! I would make tea every time that I try to change a picture with Aperture.

anyone with both pc and mac that can make a special .vp with low res planets and without this bug?

TNNX, Works! The Awakenings campaign .vp was left in the fsport folder. After removing it, it is the GTD Agamemnon in the game  :)

This campaign is great! Thanks to everybody who have contributed to this work!  :yes:

Fun so far, but Unto the Valley of Death is poorly done. I had successfully jumped out on my first attempt only to be court marshaled for abandoning ships that had never jumped in! I guess I just moved a lot faster than the mission designer intended.
