Oh well, at least I got a heads-up. Now we just need Random to fix it.  :hammer:

The new ignore code does a much better job.  Just replace ai-chase-any-except with an ai-ignore-new followed by a conventional ai-chase-any, and you should be good to go.

It doesn't seem too hard a problem to fix, at least. For anyone who knows anything about FRED, that is. :nervous:

You'd need the right build of FRED (or notepad and a lot of patience) to fix this one. I could fix this one in about 3-4 minutes but I'd have the side effect of instantly bumping the build needed to run it to the latest CVS.

:D  well not really notepad, but similar.  I was going through the missions again anyway, so why not.  So... here, try this:  http://www.qeyleb.net/files/TranscendPatch.rar

I also added a nameplate for the Generation.  I was going to do the other ships too, but I've been busy lately, plus my OS and image editor got screwed up.  I might do them later.  But the Generation is the favorite, so here you go  :)

Thanks lots for doing that! Now I can finally play the campaign with img2dds in working order (missions like Chaos Prayer drag my poor compy to a halt without it).

I think ai-ignore only accepts a single argument rather than a list. The priority also comes after the ship name too.

It's that sort of mistake that soured me on doing it in notepad in the first place. :)

Heh, heh.  Yeah, serves me right.

Well it's fixed and actually tested on my HOME machine this time.  File has been updated.

Well it's taken its time, but despite impressive efforts on behalf of bugs and disgruntled .pofs, Transcend is getting released.

Story:
Only a few short months after the end of the Second Shivan Incursion, amongst the chaos of Capellan refugees and ever-heightening levels of piracy, mysterious things have begun happening on the edge of GTVA space. Unexplained disappearances, strange rumours...

You are Lieutenant Sunder Marcel, recently transferred to the 103rd Shadow Guardians. Your squadron has been charged with uncovering the cause of these disturbances, to venture out into the unknown and return with an answer.

But something's strange about this case. The clues have no meaning, and reality is beginning to slip...

Everyone has a limit...


But for the love of God, run it in OpenGL. And read the installation instructions. Also Transcend requires a fairly recent build of FS Open - the 20050722 build works fine for me, but anything within last month or so should be okay. Uses Lightspeed's nebulae. And finally, it needs the XviD codec.

Transcend [44 MB]

Alternate Mirror (thanks Evophyrexy):
http://www.thewolfdog.com/Transcend.rar

I realise 44 MB is pretty hefty for a non-TC campaign. If it's wanted I'll upload a segmented download as well, but I'm afraid apart from that there's not much I can do to lower the file size.

For those of you who don't have the cruiser01x.pof (which is in the SCP's amv_models.vp): Replacement Ships Table

Finally, huge thanks to the SCP for their awesome work, and to phreak and taylor for their dedicated bugfixing - Transcend would have been impossible without it.

UPDATE: Backslash has put together an update to the campaign which adds the new starfield skybox to the missions and fixes a few minor bugs. The main link has been updated, but in case anyone who already has the campaign wants to get the update, there is a patch available here.

Hi I got a question.
Can this campaign be added to the retail version of freespace 2?if so how?
Also I tried the link above and it said that mirror is not there where else can I find this campaign?

Thank you for any info.
Michael.

Nope. Transcend using a whole bunch of SCP features in order to tell the story. It simply wouldn't work on Retail.

nothing you can do, the game is using a now removed SEXP, so it needs to be updated.

Sadly, I have the very same problem :(

I am using the (great) Shivan Pack 1.8 with 3.6.9 RC3, but Shivan obviously didn't know about this problem either when he put it together.

So it isn't just a matter of the build anymore, is it? Can we expect an update any time soon, because I really enjoyed it so far.

@backslash: Can you put that latest update of yours up again? The link ( http://www.qeyleb.net/files/TranscendPatch.rar ) returns a 404. If it solves the problem, I could mirror it for you for the time being.

The problem is fixed in CVS. If someone doesn't upload RC4 today or tomorrow I'll upload a build that will solve the problem.

Thank you!

I'll be looking for it.

 
Alright, the latest CVS 20060706 finally allows me to load and play the "Transcend" mission from Mantis bug 0000856, but it crashes constantly around the 3 minute mark even if I am way apart from the action. It's quite odd.

I've tried so far:
- D, R and Optimized Build
- Sound off
- mediavps off
- AGP mode 4x to 2x
- All sound modes
- safeload, noibx

This is the error:

Don't know whether it's caused by the build, something in the mission itself or my machine. I don't think it's the last-mentioned since the huge "Derelict SPC"-missions are working.

EDIT: Now that's interesting: I just managed to get killed shortly before the 3-minute-mark and the game still crashed during the "death animation". Time compression doesn't prevent it either :wtf:

Null pointer error.

Run the debug build until you get an eror you can't just click no to. Post that (and any ones preceeding it).

At 1:00 a cruiser appears. This leads to three consecutive errors for Vertex 1, 2 and 3 which I can click away:

Code: [Select]
Warning: Couldn't fix up turret indices in spline path

Model: cruiser01.pof
Path: $path02
Vertex: 1
Turret model id:13

This probably means that the turret was not specified in the ship table(s).
File:c:\fs2_open\code\ship\ship.cpp

Same for Vertex 2 and 3 (still in line 8530). Later at around 3:00 it simply crashes silently to desktop, writing the afore quoted error into the log.

If it's just a simple table error (how to fix that anyway?), why does it crash exactly 2 minutes later?  :wtf: I doubt it's a problem with the actual model since I have seen (and destroyed ;7) it in several other missions before.

The spline paths error is caused by the current fenris/leviathan model (amongst others). It's probably not the cause of this crash or we'd see it much more often.

Hmmm. I guess this will need looking at.
