so you use DOS because it's a damn good system and it's a pity that nobody uses it because they have windows/linux?

Look TA, it's not my fault you can't get FSO runnning. Plenty of n00bs have come through the forum with FSO problems and have had their lives sorted out for them.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - people aren't going to touch a non-open camapign anymore. With that in mind an0n, you'd better off with teh FS1 perhaps...

i use RH if i do stuff like that, more stable.

and it goes pretty well with a command line in XP, and XP has a deep, utter hate against DOS.

Please quote and make the words bold where I mentioned that my FSO is not running. It is working for me(and older, not HTL version), so you can eat my socks with your suspections.

All good campaigns need monkeys.

The most exotic thing this campaign will have will be a Knossos at the Sol node.

So no monkeys.

Don't be over the moon. Not you are the one who convienced me to try to make FSO run.

They will if it has a good story and good missions.  Deus Ex Machina is non-open.  So is LM3, if you don't count the cutscenes.  And how about the BWO demo?

And I voted for FS1.  FS1 has a certain atmosphere that can't be replicated in FS2.  Plus it hasn't had any campaigns released for it in a while.  That'll change with AHTW and FOW, and potentially this campaign; and the more the better, I say.

I've decided to add one ship to the game. Which means I'll have to supply ship and weapon tbls with the campaign (as well as make, texture and POF the ****er). So I've begun to wonder, as I said I would, "Why not make a few more changes?".

And incase you're wondering, it's a Sol ship suped-up with Shivan technology. Which makes the war in the campaign make more sense. And it (in theory) will also answer the "Why not just contact Earth using radio?" question. Mwuahaha. Phear my ability to fill main-campaign plot-holes.

Anyway; I've settled on FS2 because everyone will just ***** otherwise.

I'll see about making a FS1-Exclusive campaign depending on how well this one turns out and/or if I ever finish it.

"slippery slope"
I can see this quick campaign growing into some evil monster of a thing :D

FS1 is bobbins. Without beams, friendly cap ships are just a bloody liability.

IMO.:)

Yup. It's almost certainly gonna explode into an epic.

But I'm gonna cut as many corners as possible. For example, by not making the new ship(s) player-flyable, I don't have to make interface stuff for them.
