I don't understand. I was talking about the campaign.  What are you talking about?

Spoiler:
Beta Tester 7 is definitely beatable.  It took me four tries, but it's possible. Just firel as soon as you're in control of Epsilon1.

It looks good, but this bug is just unacceptable now.

Downloaded it, played it and enjoyed it greatly. And I wholeheartedly agree with bigchunk1 about the innovative stuff.

This was most Axesome! :nod:
-Woohoo new campaign! No time to play? ****!!

-Why in the bloody hell is command only giving Colossus ONE wing of bombers against the Sathanas?!

Can you post a screenshot of what you see? Your offer should be in large numbers.
If you don't want any details (I mean any shred of content) spoiled for you do not click this.
Here it is.

Depsite this issue I just managed to guess it right. :D

Kay, so I had a look at this. I thought it was something to do with your weird 1024x640 res. However I played in that res and got the popup. Were you playing with the latest nightly?

Very funny campaign. I really liked the switching between fighters in mission.

Spoiler:
I noticed we never see the first and second beta testers. DUN DUN DUN.
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off

Awsum. The end of the world as we expect it.
BTW, what's the name of the track in the first mission?

It's called "In The Beginning" from the Rebuild of Evangelion 2 soundtrack.


Also once you're all done playing, be sure to check out the intel section for more WORDS and nifty animations mjn made. :)

Hmm. Could you tell me if the mission is buggy or not ? the one with the Race.

Spoiler:
After I gestroyed the Green and the Blue Core, I don't have anything to kill the Red one. Then, a little cutscene appears and I'm on the debriefing, but I can't go to the next mission. When I try to replay the mission, there is no way to change weapons.

How strange. Maybe somehow you're not hitting the pass condition. I'd just try the mission again and see if you can make it through.

Spoiler:
Killing the red core comes in the next mission. :)

It's at that resolution because of image compression, I actually play at 1920 x 1200, and yeah I played on the latest Nightly.

Spoiler:
****load of really nice ideas, Blue Planet and Wings of Dawn references and such. The only thing that was missing was a freighter mission....
Spoiler:
What do you mean, there was a Freighter mission, you were the Freighter! :P

Could you tell me those conditions ? That's totally weird.
Spoiler:
I was in the first place during the race, I destroyed the 2 core without Holley or Delta 1 being killed, and I got the final cutscene.

I think, I have to redo the mission 3 more time to skip this one.

Commander Zane: Try playing on a smaller resolution. The hud gauge file has a max res of just 1920x1080, so yours is too high. :p Or if you feel lucky, extract the hud gauge file and modify the max to be your res.

Metal Destroyer: I had a look around. It seems that the mission pass needs the event Fade Out to be complete. The issue is that there are actually two Fade Out events in the mission. The fade out I was aiming for is supposed to trigger as the screen fades out before the mission ends. The other fade out is during the long conversation before the race.

Try this campaign file and see if the problem goes away.

Ah, simple enough. Thanks.

And it's there now. Hard to see thanks to my all-blue HUD, but it's there. :D

Official Wizard Review:

Spoiler:
Short Version: Awesome
Long Version: Awesoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooome

No really, half of the things in this I didn't even know you could do in this engine. The race for example or this character switching. THE TACO BUYING RECETTEAR STYLE! Incredible.
Mission Design was fun, concise and incredibly innovative.  BOSS BATTLES WITH PATTERNS IN MY FREESPACE? Its more likely than you think!
Very funny Briefing dialogues and i found the use of the Briefing display as thought bubbles for the characters a very cool idea.

All in all a very enjoyable experience although a little short, waiting excited for the sequel.

Incredibly creative and a must-play.

Spoiler:
Every single mission is utterly amazing. From the cool-as-**** turn of the Asiago in the second mission, to the mind-bending ship changing in the last mission. A true show of fredding proficiency. You, my dear Sir, are awesome.

The writing, the characters, the fredding, the colours. All beautiful. Oh, and beams. Lots of those as well. The jokes were quite good as well; some even made me pause the game so I don't miss anything :lol: The tech entries were also a good read, lots of good content there too. The Steele entry was very informative.

That said, there are a couple of things I didn't quite like :p
There's a couple of situations where dialogue comes up at awkward times, most of the times during dogfights. I think some of the messages didn't come with an emptymsg.ogg, so they were easy to miss. Also, in the last mission, Epsilon 1 appears out of the blue without any sort of announcement, making the shot very hard to make, which caused me to replay the mission a couple of times.

Still, it's an absolutely amazing campaign and you just made this week so much better for me. Thank you, good sir.
