Anyway, good luck and good shootin' out there^^

Good test earlier today. I uploaded some videos of the action.
Note: sorry about the quality. Premere Elements really cuts down on the quality of video made by FRAPS. If I figure out a way to increase the quaity, I'll re-upload. Go full screen.

Zacam: Uh. No, using an effect is okay. But you are literally using the TECHROOM ani as the weapon effect.

I've had good experiences with using VirtualDub to encode Fraps video. You'd need to install codecs too though, if you haven't done that already for Premiere Elements.

Observations from participating in the Fleet Battle (TvT).
- Karunas thrash Deimos, its like they're an order of magnitude more durable (probably because of insufficient PD on the Deimos)
- Sanctus make great meatshields seeing as they're small, and fast, meaning slash beams tend to miss wildly
- Deimos can't actually aim. Their beam turrets have two large a FoV, meaning they'll target whatever the hell they want (usu. sanctus)

Possible fixes:
- Add one of the nextgen corvettes for the GTVA, either the Chimera or the Diomedes - with better PD and more durability, might even the odds
- Get Spells working. (More on this later)
- Buff Deimos PD

Spells:
As of now, no ship has any "spells" short of their ETS system, but there are a number of issues preventing (re-)implementation of spells into the TvT. (Also see above post).

- The UI. Must be HUD-Gauge based, and unique to ship classes instead of based on training messages.
- key-pressed. Needs to have an optional argument of who (or which ship) pressed the key, don't know if possible.
- Stuff to make certain spells work...

It opens a whole new can of worms entirely in terms of balance, but at least we get more variables to mess around with!

Post-Multi Test #3

In bp2-mc02.fs2 "Corvette Strike", the game is too easy. Once closed in, the Sanctus and Narayanas are helpless. Recommend replacing some Sanctus with Karunas. The Narayanas are the only threat, and even then, they die once you get in range.

The mission was initially made as more of a fun demo than an actual mission. It does need an update though. If people like capship coops, I can aim to make more of them.

This video makes me think of 3 unrelated comments:
Your hud looks cool.
Xfire seems like a better option than fraps+premiere and it's free no?
The part where you assault the Shivan wing in their own dockingbay made me laugh somewhat uncontrollably for a few seconds. Not sure why.

Yup, Xfire is free and the video capture thingy works quite nicely, as long as you know how to make it work nicely. You need a couple of workarounds to get it to detect FSO (it's still working only for retail and .10 by default, they're a bit late) and the capture tend to desync audio and video more often than not, but you can find some video editors to fix that.
