fsport-mediavps not working right?
Okay so I have played through the entire main campaign of FSPORT using the mediavps_3612 version, installed everything correctly fina and dandy, but i noticed a slight oddity. I don't actually get the AMAZING graphic and retextures promised by the fsport mediavps when selecting any ported campaign other than the fsport mediavps itself, i just see the not as impressive mediavps_3612 textures (which after switching between the two and comapring, are not as impressive).

I first noticed this discrepancy when i saw that on ST:R, the weopons fire all looked the same as it did in the original FS. The hit effects and sheilds and ships models were all nice and pretty, so i overlooked that quite easily. Only until i decided to load up the fsport mediavps as my active mod did I notice what i was truly missing out on. The first thing i noticed that immediatley made me raise my brow was the fact that my favorite fighter, the Apollo, now had pretty, less boxy-like edges and texturing AND actually had lights now :blah:
Then i decided to enter a mission on the main campaign just to see what else was up...and i fired my ML-16s...and instantly questioned why they looked sleeker and prettier all of a sudden, more like what i'd expected to see as a FS2 mod.

So onto the question...are my fsport-mediavps being overridden by the (not optimized for FSPort obviously) mediavps_3612??? If so what's the solution, cause I only see the nice lights and weopons fire on the mediavps itself, not while playing any of the port campaign mods...which makes me sad :(, help me Goober500, you're my only hope :p

Oh yeah and here are some screens to give you a visual of my problem..in case my story bored you to tears

As you can see in both ML16 pics the Fenris cruiser looks perfectly redone, so do the stars and nebula and such, ships' afterburners look proper too although i didnt screenie those, so idk why it seems like whenever I run ST:R the mediavps get overridden or whatever and the Apollo no longer looks nice and weapons fire is not sleek either (you can see how in "ml16reg" the blaster shots are about twice as large as in "ml16good" and they look really out of place within an UPGRADED FS1)

Re: fsport-mediavps not working right?
check your mod.ini, your FSPort mediaVPs should be in the primarylist field, with mediavps_3612 being in secondary.

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

It is, all my mods are set up properly, with fsport's mediavps being primary, and the regular mediavps being secondary, i even tried fiddling around and disabling this and that, nada, still doesnt give me all the textures, to add I'm having the same problem with other ships as well, namely the Valkyrie, when running ST:R it looks...well crappy, when running fsport-mediavps on its own the valkyrie looks sleek and shine and detailed, so idk something is clashing cause my mod.ini is perfect

Re: fsport-mediavps not working right?
Did you ever select the fsport mediaVPs as a mod and try that? It's been so long since I actually ran things the non-personal-development way.

Re: fsport-mediavps not working right?
yes I did that is my whole issue, when I select the mediavps mod by itself it gives me the pretty graphics and effects, but when I try to run ST:R with fsport-mediavps flagged as primary in my mod.ini, i get not so pretty graphics :/ here lemme show you my valkyries i think they speak better than the apollos.


Also the mod.ini for ST:R-

[launcher]
modname      = Silent Threat: Reborn v1.2;
image255x112 = fsport-str.bmp;
infotext     = As the Great War rages on, you've been commissioned by Galactic Terran Intelligence for special intelligence operations.  Your objectives are to contain the Shivan onslaught and preserve the fragile Terran-Vasudan alliance.  But a series of suspicious events cloud the GTI's spotless record.  Is the GTI setting you up or are the Shivans spreading their evil rage?;
website      = http://fsport.hard-light.net/website/str/;
forum        = http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?board=140.0;

[multimod]
primarylist = fsport-mediavps;
secondarylist = fsport,mediavps_3612;


So yeah...either im going nuts or something just aint right here folks :/

Can you post a fs2_open.log? (link in my sig)

Notice that wonderful Typhon crash? yeah only happens with the fsport mediavps, ST:R and all other mods load it just fine, hope this helps

Also I took a look at the log myself and noticed an oddity already, when running ST:R the mod doesn't even find any files within the root folder of fsport-mediavps, however I clearly have a log up showing me running the mediavps itself, so thats a concern...thought?

Re: fsport-mediavps not working right?
This might be your problem:

Code: (fsport_str) [Select]
  -mod fsport-mediavps,fsport_str,fsport,mediavps_3612

Code: (fsport_mediavps) [Select]
  -mod fsport_mediavps,fsport,mediavps_3612

Change your STR mod.ini file, that dash should be an underscore  :)

edit: for the Typhon crash - I *think* that's a data problem in the fsport_mediavps - a code change was made recently to handle the problem more gracefully.  Using 3.6.14 RC7 may resolve the issue. There's also a link to a new Typhon model in the fsport release thread.

e2: spelling!

Re: fsport-mediavps not working right?
Actually, the correct folder names are fsport-mediavps and fsport-str; they should use hyphens. This is unlike mediavps_3612, which uses an underscore. The mod.ini files were most likely fine; Tylon didn't name the folders correctly.

Re: fsport-mediavps not working right?
Yarn is correct; the character should be a dash, not an underscore.  In fact, any file or folder provided by the FSPort project which begins with "fsport" should use a dash.

Re: fsport-mediavps not working right?
Yes thank you kind gents, though the underscore versus a dash doesnt seem to make any slight difference apparently because all the textures are there and working nicely, also as for the Typhon, I was simply being impatient and didnt let the game build a cache for the model or whatever, it works fine without any sort of fix, well erm excpet the fact that when I target it the subsystem targeting box shows only engine wash (microscopic mind you) of the destroyer and I see the model in game but not on my hud when targeting it...and theres like a huge hole in the texture occasionally but i can honestly live with that cause now i'm just being too picky -_-

Re: fsport-mediavps not working right?
On my older game system, I had the same problem with the Typhon - the game seemed to lock up and I would Ctrl-Alt-Del out of the game. When it finally would load, I'd get holes in the model where I could see stars through the ship (missing textures). Not good. Turns out, by dumping out of the game, I actually corrupted the Typhon's cache file and thus the model wouldn't draw correctly in the game.

Solution:

First, go fix your directory names - there may be some hard-coding in the VPs that point to those particular folder names (one of the moderators could verify that statement?) FS2 folders with an underscore FS1 and ST:R folders with a dash (make sure your mod.ini files reflect the changes).

Second, look under each FS1 and ST:R folder for a Cache folder (can't remember exact paths). They may contain many .IBX files - these are the model cache files. If you see any, delete ALL of them. Now load the new FS1 and go to the Tech Room. Click on each ship down the list, letting each one load completely. When you get to the big ships (especially the Typhon and the Karnak) it may take a LONG time to see the ships appear, depending on the speed of your PC. Be patient - go make a sandwich, get a drink, whatever - just let them render completely. Once you've moved down the list completely, also bring up each weapon and missile (yes, they have their own cache files too).

Once you're done with that, open ST:R and do the same with this campaign (let all of the ships render in the Tech Room). The only thing with ST:R is it can't pre-render the burned hulks from the one mission where the Vasudans get trashed by the Hades and start talking funny. You'll have to play through the campaign for it to create those cache entries - and again, be patient while it loads the mission and creates those cache files, it could take a while.

The benefit of doing this is once all of the cache files for all of the ships are created, all of the missions will load quickly and without missing textures.

Now, go play.  :cool:
