Probably the same way they ended up as Volition Bravos in Casualities of War that one time...random program weirdness.

Two things - Number 1 - I failed to jump out on the first mission and got the whole "no debriefing for mission whatever it was".

Number 2 - Could you insert a command brief into mission 1? I fiddled around with pilots and data directories and even the campaign editor trying to see if there was some sort of bug that was sending me halfway into the campaign instead of starting at mission 1.

1: Should be fixed now.

2: Probably not, because you're not supposed to know what happened before that point.

 
Even more, there shouldn't even be are briefing...
but, that would be too radical...

I didn't like it, have to be honest.  It just didn't seem very fun to me and it isn't that I just think this is a bad Homesick, because I didn't like that much either.  I found it repetetive and somewhat boring at times.

Spoiler:
I especially detested seeing the same thing every time I started in that bloody nebula.  Of course you do realise you have created a huge problem for yourself, the explanation for all this weirdness better be damn good.

Well that was fun ;7 ;7 ;7 ;7

Very crazy, btw played the whole thing in 3.6.5 with a 3.6.5 vp
Worked great, aside from an exception crash just before ending mission. But fs2 had been running for a while, i pretty much did the entire campaign in one go.
So i figure was probably just a glitch in fs2 , it  reloaded without any problems.. oh well .

Also used bobs pretty herc cockpit :D

Nice ending - shame it ended there tho, was looking forward to lots of fighty fighty insanity hehe

Very good campaign, thanks for putting the fred hours in.

Fair enough. To be honest, I was expecting a lot more responses like yours. Didn't seem like the kind of campaign many people would like.

Spoiler:
Problem? Well, while planning it out I actually started from the explanation and had to work backwards from there, it was harder for me to get this part done. Although if you didn't like this part, I doubt you'll like the explanation.

Personally i enjoy headF**K screwyness, it makes you think.
If you enjoy messed up head scewyness i highly recommend that you go and watch some david lynch movies e.g. lost highway, eraserhead, mullholland drive. Highly messed up and screwy :D:D:D

Don't mean to be annoying, but it didn't seem that weird (nice explanation of the whole GTC Vigilant death), or head "screwyness".  It seemed to be made overly complicated, though I do find an awful lot of the grand finale explanations rather rubbish or just disappointing, but that is not where any real fault should ever be found.  The most important area is the FREDing, and there it is hard to find any large faults-though sometimes beams were not on (VC xyz didnt shoot beams at Phi in one level)- but an awful lot of levels seemed superflous.  Damn I really do moan alot, I just never did like these missions much, and you lot have bloody stretched it into a campaign.  Still I played it all the way through...can't be that bad.

Spoiler:
I can see how it would appear to be overly complicated. The problem is that this is essentially a prologue, and I had to get a whole lot of information in which wouldn't become relevant for a long time. All the missions are there for a reason, even if it doesn't seem that way. Many of the missions in the last nebula especially, as a lot of them are very short and don't seem to move the story along at all. Also, some of them don't have so much of a literal connection to the story as they do a symbolic one.
