Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
I found that if you're moving at a fast enough speed that doesn't happen. I usually pull up just after launch to be safe, though.

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
I tried pulling up after launching, and yeah, that usually did the trick.  Kind of annoying thing to have to do, but oh well.  I guess that means it is a feature and not a bug.

It was the shockwaves from my massive primary plasma-cannon-of-death that really took some getting used to.  I'm used to doing most of my damage from point-blank range after corkscrewing my way into a ship's blind spot.  Heh.  Took me awhile to figure out what the heck was going wrong there.  "What do you mean I've been killed by a shockwave from my own weapon?!?!  I didn't fire any missiles!!... -oh..."

I can't beat the last mission. It tells you to destroy a blast door in between two pylons on the outer ring. I presume the Agamemnon means the Polaris reskin things, so I shoot at every vaguely door looking thing around them. No effect. I use cheats and shoot them with the plasma cannon. Still no effect. I start flying around the installation raking its outer ring. Still no effect. Where is the damn thing?

The blast door is on the central part of the station.

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
No it's not. It's on the outer ring of the station. It lets you fly through the structure connecting the outer ring to the center.

Finally a complete campaign without shields, it is so much more intresting.

Heh, I remember that. All my friends were dead, and I just kept shooting things at random. Then I flew over the blast door. Trust me, when you see it, you'll know.

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
Had to play it from start to finish. That was a very satisfying game. The ending was very reminiscent of ROTJ where the Millenium Falcon blows up the core and escapes the death star with a second to spare. Some of those battles were intense too. Freespace 1 lacked intensity in its battles, due to no beam cannons, but the amount of explosions going on in the last battle (Not cardinal spear Vega, the other one) was amazing. Well done guys.  :yes:

Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
IIRC, the reason that the torpedoes blow up is because they have a detonator similar to the Pirhanna, and when you press space a second time, or hold it down, they blow up.

if you notice the Leviathans all of their turrets are missile turrets. if you target bombs, you will notice fast missiles marked flak, coming from the cruisers. These are the explosions.

Yup.

 
Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
hmm, I'm getting a table error when I try to start the mod:

ERROR: "cs-resetmodels-shp.tbm(line 6: Error: Required token = [#End], [$Subsystem:] or [$Name], found [$Texture Replace:]." at parse/parselo.cpp:691

any idea what could be the problem?

You're using an experimental build or a HEAD build.  Go directly to 3.6.9.  Do not pass GO; do not collect $200.

 
Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
ahh thanks.  I thought it might be that, since no one else was having any problems...

 
Re: RELEASE: Cardinal Spear
Which should be played first?
CS or CS: Vega?

I can't load the first mission. I select the FSPort under the 'mod' tab, then I select the CS campaign. Doesn't work.

You're doing it wrong.

1. Make sure that all of your Cardinal Spear files are in their own folder (such as CardinalSpear) within the FS main folder.
2. Make sure that you have all the necessary FSPort files in their own folder (such as FSPort) within the main FS folder.
3. Make sure that you have a file called mod.ini in the CardinalSpear folder. The mod.ini should contain the following stuff:
Quote
[launcher]
image255x112 = CardinalSpear.bmp;
infotext     = In the tenth year of our war against the Vasudans, humanity had attempted one last desperate strike to end the war outright - a spear in the dark.  The Cardinal Fleet had been laid ruin, and the crew of the GTD Agamemnon was being hunted by a Vasudan general.  It was too late for victory, but not too late for vengeance...;

forum        = http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/board,39.0.html;

[multimod]
secondrylist = ,FSPort,Media_VPs;
Also adjust the Media_VPs part so that it matches your mediaVP folder's name.
4. Select the CardinalSpear folder as your MOD folder from the Launcher.
