Why is it that when I create a derelict folder and put the BR_derelict.vp in it, I go to select mod in the launcher and it only lets me select the folder and no file appears below it? I would think that I would have to select the file as the mod. Instead, I select it and the box in Launcher 5.3 that should have the campaign's description in it is blank. This makes me assume that it isn't reading it.
The launcher selects the mod folder because the folder may contain more than one file.

The reason there's no campaign description is because Launcher 5.3 was released very recently and Derelict does not have a mod.ini file yet.

Also, there is a problem in the mission "The Stars are Right". Most of the time, I start the mission and the Irving is not attached to the docking ring, yet the targeting info says it is docked. Then 3 minutes into the mission, one of the docking rings all of a sudden turns about 180 degrees and appears about a kilometer away from its previous position and when it collides with the Meridian, it usually destroys it :D. And the other ring with the Irving on it turns almost all the way around. Then the Nyarlathotep shoots about 4 clicks straight ahead at a high speed and slows down then comes to a stop. After the docking ring with the Irving has turned almost all the way around, it stops and part of it becomes obstructed in front of the Irving, making it so the Irving keeps trying to move forward but can't go anywhere and it keeps colliding into the docking ring endlessly. This puts me in the position to where the next event is never triggered, thus I can't complete the mision unless I fail it 5 times by returning to base five times. But I consider this a last resort. I don't know if the fact that I have been playing the campaign while its vp is in the main FS2 directory has to do with this "what seems to be" bug. Please help.
This is a bug that was recently fixed.  Download a new build from the Recent Builds forum.

Actually it does. No one is using them yet apart from me but I made a whole bunch which you can get from here

Uh oh.  Put that in Mantis; it may be a SCP bug.

As soon as a new CVS build shows up, that's when to test it.  The fix has been committed but until you can get it in a binary (or can compile it yourself) you can't test it.  I'm waiting for this to be resolved too, and it shouldn't be long until latest CVS does actually get updated.

It has been quite a few months since derelict's voice acting has started, and I am not so sure how or when it'll be finished. Could it be an option to release the debugged version of the re-release before the voice acting is finished ?

Only mods + admins can do that, so you'd have to e-mail one of them with the file as an attachment, or upload it somewhere and post the URL.

I happen to be in the former category, so I'll try to check my e-mail later tonight if you single me out. :p

I mean the forum attachment system. It wouldn't let me post it due to an access-denied error. :nervous:

So I uploaded it to warpcore instead.

Hey, I'm having trouble in one of the mission in Derelict.

I'm up to the mission "said the spider to the fly". (problem within spoilers):

Spoiler:
This is the missions where you have to scan the Nayalatep and Tyulacha (I don't remember how to spell their names). After you have done so, command tells you to get out of range of the shivans, then wait for the command to return to base. Problem is, once I am out of range I get no command at all, even if I increase the game speed and let it run for a while. Is there something else I am supposed to do with the shivans, or is this some kind of bug?

Look back several pages in this thread.  I've identified how you can fix the problem.

What's this a fix for? (I can't be bothered to read back to figure it out) Cause if it's a bug fix for a mission or something I'll edit the first post to add it.

It fixes a mismatched SEXP that made the mission "Said the Spider to the Fly" unable to be completed. Someone posted how to fix it and so I did so. Since lots of other people had the problem I figured I'd make use of my fileh account and upload the fixed mission.

Sounds fair enough. I'll add that one straight away.
