Credits and Shoutouts:
When a project has been in development for so long, it's easy to lose track of who contributed what over the years. If you did work for WoD in the past and I forgot to add you to this list, just let me know.

- Endless thanks to Axem for his vital, hard work. His numerous and amazing lua scripts have enhanced and elevated WoD to a level that I could never have accomplished on my own. But it's not just awesome scripts that he contributed, he also made a wide array of incredible ship models, including the one that takes center stage at the end of episode 2. He also produced, redid and retextured most of the asteroid models that make their appearance. Worked on the interface, hud and the awesome mainhalls. Additionally, he fredded several new missions for episode 2, made fantastic cutscenes and remade missions from episode 1 from scratch, which improved them many times over. He has also relentlessly helped track down and squash many pesky bugs.

- Omega thanks to Dahblount and Swifty for all their coding work. While Swifty may have been busy with his job in the games industry in recent time, his past contributions to things like shadows, the lighting engine, optimizations, shield improvements and multilock deserve all the credit that we can give. Meanwhile Dahblount has really stepped up to the plate when it comes to adding the endless features that we nag him about, and fixing the countless bugs that we've run into over the years. Development would have been a really painful experience (more so than it already was :P ) if he wasn't there and always available. Let me also not forget to credit him for the modelling work he has done in the past. Such as remaking the Ray MkIII and Kaze into their current awesome looking incarnations.

- And on the subject of models; I must thank Hades (or Hammer Nipples as he goes by on Discord these days) for the many model contributions he has made. Vital models such as Guardian Angel and the Dragonfly are all his work, amongst many others. 

- Another person who has helped made part of WoD possible is Niffiwan. When the apng kickstarter turned out to be a dud (https://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=85280.0), it was Niffiwan who stepped up and worked closely with Axem to make apng a supported format in FSO. It works seamlessly nowadays and has become a vital part of WoD.

- Not a HLP resident, not even a FSO player. I must thank my good buddy Mpgrey, for he has gone through the massive effort of going through my many, many words in the VN fiction files and editing them. Correcting grammar and spelling mistakes and improving readability.


Also thanks/credit to:
PIe, Thisisaverylongusername (Rubik The Great) for playtesting. FrikgFeek for playtesting and given some valuable feedback in regards to ship and weapon balancing.
Sab0o for past modelling work; models like the awesome Colony. And also for his texturing work on ships like the Ascension and Basileus.
Droid803 for various small modding things in the past and for letting me use a bunch of models that were not specifically made for WoD, but do well in it regardless (such as the Peacekeeper/Rhea).
That also goes for AndrewofDoom who has made models specifically for WoD (such as the Ray MkII) and models that were not specifically made for WoD, but do well in it regardless.
Valathil for coding and bug fixing work done in the past (and for the first implentation of shadows).
m!m for his many recent FSO coding contributions that also help out WoD a lot. (Such as improving bmpman, particles and sound)
Since I mentioned sound coding, I have to mention jg18's work in that regard too. WoD's soundscape would have been dreadful if it wasn't for these coding additions.
wookieejedi for his custom wingmen hud gauge script.
manwiththemachinegun who offered to do VN editing work. I only ended up giving him a small amount of work to do since Mpgrey was powering through everything else at an amazing pace. But his help still deserves mention.
AtomicClucker for the Cavalier model.
Enioch for his fantastic Terconia Campaign lore story.
Battuta and redsniper for being cool dudes.

Spoon for his work on *deep breath*: Fredding/mission design, modeling, texturing, writing, playtesting, sound, bug hunting, script testing, tables, story, characters, art, effects and basically everything else that is game design/development related.


And finally: Thanks to all you players out there. The wait between episode 1 and 2 has been a long one, and I thank you for your patience and supporting words during that time.




You are allowed to use WoD's assets (With the exception of character art) in your own projects, assuming it's being used for non-commerical purposes. While not required, I would appreciate it if you would let me know that you intent on using any of WoD's assets. Take note that I do not hold the rights to any of the music, some of the sounds and some of the ship models that are being used in WoD. You may need to contact other authors for those. Refer to the credits for more details on that.

I really enjoyed playtesting for this project. The additions and modification to episode 1 are very welcome, and episode 2 kept me hooked from start to finish. I've already played the campaign four times, and I can definitely say I wouldn't mind doing a fifth. If you're reading this, what are you doing? Go play the campaign already, it's well worth it!

32bit Win builts anybody?
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: Axem on December 29, 2018, 08:18:24 pm
With the amount of stuff in WoD, its very likely to kick the memory usage above what 32 bit builds can handle, so it's not really supported I'm afraid.

If you've got a 32 bit system, we might be able to try something but there's no guarantee it'll work. (though if we do it'll have to wait until tomorrow because I'm exhausted from this releasing :shaking:)

I've got an issue in the "Shopping" mission. When I go to the ship shop, I buy the stuff I need, but I can't leave the selection screen. It says "MORE" at the bottom of the selections, so obviously I need to scroll it, but I don't know how to do this. There's no scrolling arrow to click, and I pressed every single button on my keyboard. Also took a look at the key bindings and am not sure what would be tied to this. I switched to default FS2 controls btw. Can someone help?

What display resolution are you playing at?
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: IidoTheMageFox on December 29, 2018, 10:19:23 pm
1280x720. I know the default is 1920x1080. I lowered the resolution so I could play in a window and multitask.
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: Thisisaverylongusername on December 29, 2018, 10:20:49 pm
Try it at 1366x768, then. There isn't any way to scroll; you shouldn't have to.
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: IidoTheMageFox on December 29, 2018, 10:25:03 pm
Thanks, I'll try it. I had a feeling it was a resolution issue, since some dialogue text also goes out below the box.

EDIT: That fixed it! Thank you.

I can't get Wings of Dawn to launch after downloading it from Knossos.  I do have both Wings of Dawn and the Wings of Dawn builds downloaded. 

Is there a log I can find and post to help figure this out?

May have come across a bug in "Shopping" I failed the red comet race even after beating the time of 2:45.
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: manwiththemachinegun on December 30, 2018, 12:41:27 am
It has a manual .exe file called Fs2_open_Wings_of_Dawn-EX17-SSE2.exe . That's what I'm using, but I'm too stubborn to use Knossos and just installed it manually.
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: legacytyphoon on December 30, 2018, 02:04:33 am
So I decided to just try the manual install for WoD and it worked fine.  For some reason the Knossos install will not launch for me at all.  It doesn't give an error or a log I can find (My last log was from 68 days ago or something ridiculous).  I could play with the manual install but I would love to play through Knossos if possible.  While I was fiddling with things I noticed I can no longer launch any of the nightlies through Knossos.  The only build that actually even launches anymore is the 3.8.0 stable build.
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: niffiwan on December 30, 2018, 06:50:18 am
There's a knossos log in %appdata%\knossos\log.txt

Try pasting that either here or in #knossos on Discord

Also; is your "Engine Preferred Stability" (Settings->Knossos) still set to "Nightlies"?

Lastly, I presume the 68 day old log is your FSO log? What place on your disk did you get that log from?

Mod.ini is included... as long as you don't use the Knossos links to download the campaign.

Than everything should be fine. I just meant using the Knossos links for downloading without the launcher.

We're going to have Linux builds up on Knossos today. We had it ready but because of other technical issues, they didn't make it on there.

That minigame!

There's been so many fixes and stuff for the race, but I thought I got it. I even specifically ran the race just before release to make sure it was still working (which it was!!). Just a few questions about it, what difficulty were you running and was this your first or second (or third) try? And what was your final time?
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: praseodym on December 30, 2018, 09:31:16 am
I used the DL links there, no mod.ini included, sorry for confusing. Linux builds downloaded from the release post
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: Axem on December 30, 2018, 09:33:55 am
You can use this one I guess. There's not much to it since its a completely standalone game. (I would really not recommend running it as a mod to FreeSpace!)

Bleh, its probably not seeing the second attempt right. :hopping:

If you run it good the first time it should be fine. Well, something to patch for later I guess.

What video card do you have? I did hear of some problems with TTF fonts and certain video card models before.

Post by: Gray113 on December 30, 2018, 02:51:48 pm
Im running an AMD A10 - 7300 processor with Radeon R6. In the launcher all high memory features are set to off. Im not expecting to be able to get it running tbh, just thought I would give it a try.

Post by: Axem on December 30, 2018, 03:13:42 pm
Yeah, I'm sorry to report that the engine is having problems with low end AMD GPUs when using TTF fonts in mods (like WoD). It's especially troublesome because anyone who could fix it doesn't have a card like that to debug it for themselves. :(

We've been very busy to make it happen :) Hope you enjoy~

I considered putting the trailer video in the release post, but on the other hand, I kind of liked having it just be a clean and simple instructions post.

So I decided to just try the manual install for WoD and it worked fine.  For some reason the Knossos install will not launch for me at all.  It doesn't give an error or a log I can find (My last log was from 68 days ago or something ridiculous).  I could play with the manual install but I would love to play through Knossos if possible.  While I was fiddling with things I noticed I can no longer launch any of the nightlies through Knossos.  The only build that actually even launches anymore is the 3.8.0 stable build.
I wish I could help with Knossos issues, but unfortunately I have no idea  :(

I look forward to downloading this and playing through both episodes.   It's not a stealth sequel to anything is it?
As usual, it serves as a stealth sequel of sorts to the Immortal Turbines art book trilogy.

Don't use Knossos, Ubuntu 16.04 here
None of the WoD devs have a machine running Linux, so I really hope it will run without too much issue for you!

Yeah, I'm sorry to report that the engine is having problems with low end AMD GPUs when using TTF fonts in mods (like WoD). It's especially troublesome because anyone who could fix it doesn't have a card like that to debug it for themselves. :(

Just finished it. Phenomenal work, Spoon! I enjoyed it from start to finish! I really enjoyed the changes and additions to the first episode, and how you've been redoing the original story, particularly in regard to the various alien races. Liking the little hints/teases about stuff to expect in episode 3. :P Great mission design, and the last set of missions were particularly awesome; way to end a campaign on a strong note.

I got a question, what's that music that plays during many of the major battles? Most recently, on mission 25.

Also; is your "Engine Preferred Stability" (Settings->Knossos) still set to "Nightlies"?
It was.  I also tried setting it to Stable and RCS but that just removed the Nightlies from the list.  When I try to launch the nightlies (or WoDs version) it just says "FSO is launching" and then does nothing.

Thanks, good to haer :)

The OST is 90% from Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon (Horizon in the middle of nowhere), including the tracks played during mission 25.

The OST is 90% from Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon (Horizon in the middle of nowhere), including the tracks played during mission 25.


That alone is more than enough reason to play it. Who cares if I loose every mission cause I can't play anymore, as long as the music runs its fine...

No dusting off is required, you can just install WoD dust free, since it's a standalone release  :p
Knossos is a really handy launcher (https://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=94068.0) which will make installing any kind of mod/campaign/fs2 based game really easy.

Hmmm, can't play because there's no text (lousy AMD cards!) and can't use the debugs because of

You can savely ignore that debug text by hitting continue. It's a mostly pointless message.

Hmm...

So the race bug, I assume that when you say first try I assume you mean first try since starting the mission? Does restarting the whole mission/game allow you to try again?

If so it also seems that getting within 10 seconds of the cutoff time (2:37:XX) also doesn't count as a victory either.

Patch that fixes the issue with the race timer. (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zizIvG47toc_GYg0CdA9wlOrnZXYTuGQ)

Turned out our initial assumption about it bugging out on a retry wasn't entirely correct. It was instead a matter of the race merely checking to see if the player made it in under 150 seconds, with no regard for what difficulty the player was on. Should be fixed with the above patch. Just drop it into your WoD installation and overwrite.

Can you take this fonts.tbl and put it your /data/tables/ directory to override the one in the vps? It basically makes all the TTF fonts back into VF ones, so they won't be as nice but hopefully it'll work for you.

Great success! Texts are back.

EDIT: the missions, however, are gone. Every mission now loads a ghost where the player should be, no HUD of any kind and the words "top view" on the top of the screen. It is as if it was stuck in cutscene mode.

On the home tab, can you click that arrow drop down box on the bottom of the WoD tile and go "Check File Integrity"? I'm just thinking that something didn't download correctly.
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: TheOnceUnknown on January 13, 2019, 10:17:38 am
When checking file integrity, it claims that 2 packages are invalid
1) Package hud 2 of mod Wings of Dawn
2) Packages maps of mod Wings of Dawn


It should be noted that prior to posting about parselo.cpp, that I had already verified that these 2 packages were bad and had attempted to reinstall them through the verifying process.
After attempting to reinstall them, nothing changed and they were still invalid.
When I finish downloading them, Knossos pops up an error about how there was a critical failure (remembering this from memory, I don't have the text box available).
I have no idea what I could do about these invalid packages if knossos keeps installing them wrong.
It should be noted that I reinstalled Freespace 2 and Knossos just yesterday after having had my C drive factory reset a couple of months ago, I am also using windows defender currently if that could be quarentining the files, although from a quick inspection, it doesn't seem to be doing that.
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: Spoon on January 13, 2019, 04:20:52 pm
If Knossos for some reason keeps giving you invalid packages, you might want to try a manual download link instead. There's not that much we can do about Knossos not cooperating unfortunately.

I haven't played Freespace in a while, but I loved WOD episode 1 even before all the changes, so I'm definitely going to give this a shot. Thanks Spoon! (Also, this is my first time trying the Knossos installer- it seems cool as heck).

I was just wondering if this is specifically a Knossos issue or if it was an issue with Wings of Dawn. I have previously attempted to download Wings of Dawn as a standalone and haven't been able to get past the initial selection of "Ready Room". If you have any other suggestions, for how to not get this parselo.cpp error, please offer them up, otherwise I guess I will try the standalone again.
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: Axem on January 13, 2019, 06:36:56 pm
That parselo error is from the game being unable to read a certain effect due to a problem with one of the archives. Either an archive is corrupt, incomplete, or otherwise unreadable by the game. I've seen that error while we were just about to release and it was certainly fixed. My only advice is to keep trying with the download. :(

I don't think its a problem with WoD or Knossos, we've had many people with successful downloads and there's been no recent changes.

Ok, got a new issue.

This one isn't a problem with launching the game.

I am on the gaunlet mission shortly after meeting Tempest and Justice.
I start the mission and complete waves 1, 2, and 3. Then my fighter gets rearmed.
After that, wave 4 never spawns, it doesn't spawn when waiting in regular time, and it doesn't spawn when speeding time up to 64x and having over 55 minutes pass in-game.
There is also not a feature to exit early from the mission.

The only thing I can think to do is to let the wave 2 fighters kill me and hope it progresses the game, however, I really wanted to do the gauntlet.

Can you please tell me if there is a way to make wave 4 spawn in to continue the gauntlet?

I encountered a sudden end to mission E2-M15 Welcome Back. There was no debriefing text. I was fighting the Cordi and suddenly the screen faded to black. I'll admit I wasn't keeping close watch on the escort list, so it's possible the Gate of Alemeo died.

EDIT: On a second attempt, it seems that the mission ends if you fly too close to the LSF Guardian Angel.

That's the button for glide, the game is probably freaking out trying to put the player ship into glide while the engine subsystem is broken or something. The sound goes away if you hit spacebar a second time.

Ah, yeah I see the issue. A simple mistake of checking the player's distance to the hangarbays without ensuring that that check only happens after the victory conditions have been met.

Since it's been so long since I played episode 1 I decided to replay it before going into ep 2, but I ran into a problem.

I think to remember there being a certain bonus goal, but can't find it and I'm wondering if it was moved or if I'm misremembering.

Spoiler:
The mission I talk about is the mission where you have to lay bombs in an asteroid field to deal with the Contravention. And the container I'm looking for is loaded with "bathing accessories" for later use ;)

Post by: Spoon on February 03, 2019, 02:40:36 pm
You're remembering the right mission. That 'find the container' bonus goal that used to be in that mission in the 2015 release of episode 1, is no longer there in the new remastered version of the bomb laying mission. (I hope you're not replaying the 2015 release, just play the new combined Episode 1&2 campaign instead!)

Post by: Spoon on February 10, 2019, 03:38:56 pm
Newest patch includes two Gauntlet missions (would have been a singular one, but apparently FRED didn't appreciate the amount of ships it required).

Equip yourself and your two wingmates with (almost) all the weapons and ships WoD has on offer and fight through either a Terran, Cyrvan or Hierarchy gauntlet.
Difficulty per wave is a bit randomized, with a higher chance to get harder waves on higher difficulties.

These gauntlets contain 'spoilers', in that they have ships and weapons in them that you've not seen in the main campaign yet.
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: 5thAce on February 24, 2019, 04:17:02 pm
The gauntlets are very enjoyable, I need to learn about all of these CSA weapons. The gauntlet got me thinking, is there anyway to "play" the benchmark? Might sound strange but being able to fight in a large battle with Terrans and Cyrvans vs. The Hierarchy would be cool! Capships, fighters and lasers everywhere!
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: Spoon on February 24, 2019, 07:26:27 pm
Sure, just start FRED and open the benchmark in it. Then go to the events editor and delete all of the events and save the mission. Then you can just fly through the benchmark.
Title: Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Post by: Dark Hunter on February 24, 2019, 10:32:12 pm
So, I FINALLY found some time to play through this. Here I offer my critique:

The gameplay was solid, about what I remember from the old WoD release. I seem to recall the Contravention asteroid trap mission being more complex than that, but I like the simplified version better if that is the case. Loved the final boss... definitely establishes the Nordera as, you know, an actual threat this time around. A wider variety in the various races capital ships is also welcome.

As for the story... well, I am not sure how to put this. All the pieces are there and the reimagined characters are great (I mourn the loss of the male LSDF fighter pilots though), but something seemed... off. I think it has to do with how characters seem to make major decisions very quickly, seemingly just to move the story along. Everyone seems EXTREMELY easygoing about everything, and I get that part of that is just WoD's general tone, but it's not always in a good way.

Spoiler:
This was most obvious near the end of Episode 2, where Acella (sp?) suddenly decided to support Kunoichi in her "Make Dawn a goddess" plot. For that matter, how quickly Dawn went along with it. I mean, excuse me, WHAT? Deciding just like that to betray, as Acella put it, the "highest branches of the Cryvan government"? And Dawn going into this full steam ahead, without any hesitation or consideration toward the implications or consequences of such a goal, whether they succeed or fail? Granted, Acella might be lying and going along with them for the moment, but seriously Kunoichi, Acella, and Dawn, apply some brakes to that train of thought! There's diving headfirst into something and then there's diving off a cliff with a jetpack propelling you downwards.


Spoiler:
I also feel like Dawn was made a bit too powerful, but seeing as the story is incomplete, maybe Spoon has something in mind on how to develop that plot point going forward. So on that I reserve final judgement. That info-dump seemed a bit early in the story though. You sure you want to reveal so much so fast, Spoon? Or do you perhaps have more up your sleeve?

On the positive side, this does flesh out the Wings of Dawn universe tremendously over the old one, and if we can expect this kind of additional worldbuilding going forward, that is excellent. The various different factions of the Terrans are great (even if the New Brittainians are insufferable to the extreme... I'm with Jello, I don't think I could ever like such holier-than-thou pompous bigheads), and we apparently have some
Spoiler:
inter-faction conflict among the Cyrvans.


This makes everything much more complex, intriguing, and ripe for new plots to open up.

On the whole, I feel like it's obvious a tremendous amount of work went into this and I am excited to see where it's going.  :yes:

Garbled Flickering Text Rendering Issues
=========================

Just want to log this here in case developers want to address the issue.   I have logged a thread elsewhere about the issue which affects WoD and Between The Ashes Mods for me.   Renders the Mods unplayable, unusable because you can't see text, can't therefore set pilot options or see in game ship texts and so on

On the other thread I am told that the issue is caused by new features in FSO that render True-Type fonts.   Those features are clearly not supported by some graphics cards/platforms.  Up to the developers whether they want to bother addressing that or not, no problem if not, but realise that it reduces your target audience for the WoD mod.

Here are screen shots of the problem from various screens in WoD

WoD Profile Selection
http://tinypic.com/r/14bofa/9

WoD Options Screen

WoD Targetting Options Screen
http://tinypic.com/r/2f069w4/9

WoD Misc Options Screen
http://tinypic.com/r/16a7a4o/9


Note that most other Mods work and play just fine on my laptop, inc Blue Planet, Wing Commander Darkest Dawn, Silent Threat, Transcend etc etc etc

So, no issues with my rig's power or ability to play Freespace and Mods, just issues with specific use of True Type font features in FSO.

Laptop is Lenovo with Intel HD Graphics 4600

Hi

FYI, turning the gauge off in the HUD Config Window doesn't work for me.   In the config window it goes dim when you turn it off, but when you play the game, it's still there.  Could just be part of my graphics issues tho.  This is with the latest update which I downloaded.   That update also screwed my fonts again which had been previously fixed with that fonts.tbl patch file :(

Oh so it won't work with Knossos. I meant you can download the updated version yourself and put it data/tables and then it should work  :) The link for the most up-to-date version is in my signature.

Hello, I just got stuck on shopping mission, after getting to shop I can't leave interface at all. I am simply stuck and can't do anything aside from turning text on and off. Aside from that when I get any VN part with big red MORE stuck at the bottom I can't scroll down at all.

The resolution you are playing at is not supported. Try using a higher resolution, if you can.

Thanks for the feedback  :yes:

You sure you want to reveal so much so fast, Spoon? Or do you perhaps have more up your sleeve?
It was done quite deliberately, yes.
But apparently nobody seems to have any faith in my story telling abilities!  :(

You do good work Spoon, I'd just take the criticism in stride and keep working on the stuff you want to work on.

Now that I think of it, I don't think I finished the last mission in WoD act 2 because I didn't really want it to end knowing how long it'd likely be for the next episode. :P
