Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
Good grief.  3 different hosts for Windows, Mac, Linux, and no redundancy.

I checked the torrent I uploaded, but unfortunately, I only got up to v1.0.2

Not sure if I have the file buried somewhere on a hard disk, if I do, I'll upload it.  Perhaps try again in a few days, the hosts might be down for Mac (I know the Linux link says "under maintenance".

Thank y'all for creating this. When I discovered this game, it so totally made my day... heck, my last five years. This is really, really awesome.

 
Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
I have encountered a bug on the first mission of version 1.1.2

The tutorial tells me to target Drone 2. I target it but nothing happens, and I can't move the ship because the game disables the ship's controls. Can someone help me ?
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened

Yeah. I've heard of this bug happening before but I can't reproduce it so far. How are you targetting the drone?

Oh, which version of the engine are you running? I think that bug exists in 3.8.0, but should be fixed in recent nightlies (unless I'm misremembering).

I downloaded the mod using the knossos installer. I'm running FSO 3.8.0.

I'm targeting the drone using the T key, in the exact same way the tutorial instructs me to do.

@ralwood, if you know which version of  FSO fixes that problem I can raise the minimum requirements to that version in Knossos.

If it doesn't show up for everyone, you could just want to put a note in the description, something like "If you encounter x bug, try a recent nightly."  Forcing everyone to use a nightly seems like it would break more things.

If it doesn't show up for everyone[...]
Knossos doesn't support versions before 3.8.0, which expresses the bug, so yes, it shows up for everyone not using a sufficiently-recent nightly build.

@ralwood, if you know which version of  FSO fixes that problem I can raise the minimum requirements to that version in Knossos.
The bug was fixed in this PR, which first appeared in
this nightly build

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice v1.0 (Windows, Mac & Linux)
I can personally attest to this happening, as it just happened to me using fs2 Open 3.8.0. The previous version would run the training programs, and the new version has me wondering if it will fix the problem I have with the first cylon mission.

I'll run it on debug and see what happens.

UPDATE: My debug didn't work, BUT you can skip training and go right into action!
My previous glitch with the crash to desktop is fixed and I'm currently undertaking mission 2!
