It's designed for retail but it should be runnable on the SCP. If not, there could be a bug in the SCP.
You're using a build that's rather out of date, too. Try taylor's 2005-05-30 build in the SCP recent builds forum.
1). In the first engagement with the Shivans, the GTF cruiser survives the engagement--something clearly not accounted for the debriefing. This appears to be because I was able to destroy shivan bombers--something I was NEVER able to pull off in retail FS1. In retail FS1 with medium game play settings I could destroy a fighter, but only by dumping on piles of dumbfire missiles in addition to doubling up the ML-50 laser. Even then sometimes they jumped out...
This sounds like a balancing problem. The SCP balance has been changed somewhat, and we're trying to put it back the way it was. Try it in FS2 retail, and then try it in the 5-30 build and see if it's any different.
2). Great War campaign appears to skip a mission. Goes directly from the capture of the Taranis to the evacuation from Tombaugh with nothing in between. It's been awhile since I've had FS1 installed & I could have sworn there was supposed to be something in there.
A cutscene is there.
3). Avi movies frequently play in the background. Can hear the sound but can't see the movie (this is probably a SCP issue).
Probably a SCP issue, yes. Try the 05-30 build.
