[office space]Looking good, porters. Now if you could just go ahead and finish ST: Reborn, that'd be great. Yeah. Oh, and, I'm also gonna need you to work on Sunday, too, yeah.[/office space]

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
Wow, voice acting.

There are a few bugs in there still (Unto the Valley of Death and the jumping sometimes got wonky).

I did a while back to a tweaked version, "The Vega Engagement" with some plot bits rewritten and missions reworked to fit better with FS2.

For anyone interested in it:
http://www.savant-online.net/files/vega_engagement.zip

It's for FS1 though.

Mad Bomber is right, CS: Vega had pretty much all of the mods out there at the time. The Karnak was one of the first fully-functional new models in the game.

Anyway... please don't be too harsh I was... what 13 when making this? ;)

Edit- Gone through it, great work on the voice overs guys.

Is it possible to get a complete cast list? The first post doesn't tell me who voiced which character.

Also, is it possible to make CS use the Angel model included in the Port?

I voiced the GTD Agammemnon if that's any help. :)

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
Once Nelson posts the patch that replaces the temporary robo-voices, the GTC Wyrm will be me.

I just hope my fake English accent is suitably convincing ;)

So that's you doing the command briefings? Cool!

I'll be waiting for the patch then. My thanks to both of you.



Would someone please tell me how to use the Angel model in CS?

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
Thanks for the feedback, Ace, it's always great to hear back from the original author. :)

I tried to fix the jump node sexps in Unto the Valley of Death, but I couldn't do much about the arrival of the GTC Wyrm (the problem that Alan Bolte encountered) without creating another briefing stage.

Anyway... please don't be too harsh I was... what 13 when making this? ;)
The story is the main part, and the mods follow a close second.  The bugfixes really allow the campaign to shine on its own imho. :)

Admiral Nelson already explained the issues involved on the first page...

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.
In order to use the Port's model of the GTF Angel, you'd have to add a second primary bank of two gunpoints.  So you'd have to either edit the POF file yourself or bribe someone to do it for you. :)

Thanks for replying.

I'd prefer to just use the Angel as-is; I'll enjoy the challenge. How do I go about handicapping myself with the two-gun Angel model?

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
In that case you would have to extract the Angel model from the Port VPs and stick it in the Cardinal Spear file structure.  Then extract the Cardinal Spear ships.tbl and a) edit it to use the Angel pof file; b) reduce its specified gun banks from 2 to 1.  Then go through each of the missions in Notepad and remove the second gunbank from each of the Angel ship entries.

The command briefing's reminded me of the cat from Shrek...but in a cool way.

Actually, I just voiced the Agammemnon in-mission. Okay, so I've not played the campaign yet due to workload, but the lines I got certainly didn't suggest that they were command briefings. :)

Okay, I'm an idiot.

In CS01.fs2 all occurrences of
Quote from: CS01.fs2
$Class: GTF Angel
...
+Primary Banks: ( "HL-14 Laser" "ML-16 Laser" )
were changed to
Quote from: CS01.fs2
$Class: GTF Angel
...
+Primary Banks: ( "ML-16 Laser" )

In ships.tbl, these lines:

+Gun Mounts:      4
...
$POF file:         fighter05.pof
...
$Default PBanks:   ( "HL-14 Laser" "Disruptor" )

$Shield_icon:      shield-f05

$Ship_anim:         ssfighter05

became
Quote from: ships.tbl
$Name:            GTF Angel

...
$Default PBanks:   ( "ML-16 Laser" )
...
$Shield_icon:      shield-angel
...
$Ship_anim:         techangel
$Ship_overhead:   loadangel


After doing all that, I loaded up CS-01.fs2. I have gotten the Angel model to display in both tech room and mission, but the game still thinks the Angel has 2 primary banks. In-mission, the Angel carries an HL-14 in the top bank and an ML-16 in the lower bank - and the ML-16 will not fire.

Did you reset the campaign?

If that doesn't work, try creating a new pilot.

I probably should have written it so that the CB voiceover was from Admiral Ikeyev as your VO sounded pretty much like what I wanted him to sound like.

But this was before FS2 where it was clear that the briefing and CB people were different. (Petrarch v.s. squadron leader)
