You can't necro a release thread.

Re: RELEASE: Homesick, a 30+ mission campaign
Well, of course you can. You can't necro a sticky. But personally I'm growing tired of the whole concept of "necro". Every time someone replies to a thread after 30 days and 2 seconds, someone else has to barge in with the usual "zomfg necrobeamzorz lol" rant. Then we fight about whether it was a "legitimate" necro (related to the topic) or not (just some random spamming). It would be so much cooler if no one would raise a fuss about valid necros. Of course if someone revives a thread after several years, and possibly with spam, the thread should be locked.

Re: RELEASE: Homesick, a 30+ mission campaign
Ah so the 3.6.10 build that comes with the online installer should do the trick without any tinkering?
Maybe. I won't guarantee anything.
It doesn't.  3.6.10 crashes after the briefing just like 3.6.9 did.

Re: RELEASE: Homesick, a 30+ mission campaign
I've wanted to continue playing Homesick, but when I try to play a certain mission, it doesn't even get past the first page of the briefing before it screws up. My complaint is in the support topic, but it has had no luck since then. Does anyone know how to work around this?

Also, what are the prospects for getting a voiceacted version of this out?

Re: RELEASE: Homesick, a 30+ mission campaign
Pardon for not replying there, but I really have no clue about what the issue might be. I'd like to do some testing, but I have exams coming up (one on Saturday), I need to lick some serious booty if I'm to get a job for the summer, and I have a special project that I'd need to finish rather quickly. If I can find the time, I'll try to figure out something about this issue.

Also, what are the prospects for getting a voiceacted version of this out?
Probably the same as it was with Blue Planet; if someone wants to organize voice acting, go for it.

Re: RELEASE: Homesick, a 30+ mission campaign
If the number of voice actors is high the FSCRP may consider voice acting for Homesick. In any case, however, an eventually upgraded campaign will not wait for voice acting...it will be released as soon as the campaign file and the missions are ok.

It won't be long before the FSCRP will start working on Homesick. :)

It better start on Homesick. I've been waiting for the FSCRP to revive this for a while. I can't wait to fly with the Custodian again.

The Installer can provide a working copy of the HS campaign IIRC. Try it there.

Nope, it tries to download it from wanadoo (or whatever it is) and fails.

I found it hosted on moddb, but I have no idea if it's 'current'

Re: RELEASE: Homesick, a 30+ mission campaign
Homesick didn't have any updates since its release; the infamous red-alert bug ruining the campaign was stopped by 3.6.10 so you should be fine with the copy of Moddb. Alternatively, you can get a working copy from FreeSpace Mods (I tested it) but both sources are fine.  :)

You're actually stuck in the 2nd or 3rd mission, after the convoy jumped, you are supposed to jump as well, but your jump drives never engage. qq

It might have something to do with the fact that you need to be in the node to jump.

 
Re: RELEASE: Homesick, a 30+ mission campaign
I know, Ive been in the jump node, flying in and out, around it, back to the old one and to the new one again, flying loopings and so on. But it still doesnt engage.
