Holy crap, someone made an .ogg version? Hot damn!

And Ransom, I see you viewing this thread. Get on MSN, I need to talk to you. :P

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

The download in the first post also has the OGG version.

Meh. Turey's installer has an outdated version.

Okay. I've figured out why Transcend is crashing. It's apparently related to a SEXP which slows time down when you destroy one of the fighters towards the beginning. I edited the SEXP with more data and it seems to have worked.
Mantis please.

Also, fixed mission file for White Noise.

The fade-out at the end may or may not work. Didn't for me.

Really?  All I did was shut off all the SCP features and turn all in-game detailing down to minimal.  That work...some-what.  I say that because it took a few tries to get through the level.  Doing what I did will most likely get you farther and, with any luck, through the level.

Uh huh, when I have all the settings maxed out, added more SEXP data and got through the entire mission. :P

Dude, seriously, just try it. If it still crashes it's a bug in FSO (which I highly doubt, I completed the mission twice without crashing).

I just finished Transcend again. This time, since I knew to run for the node on most of the run-for-the-node missions, the filler gameplay didn't bother me as much. Transcend isn't about gameplay anyway!

I also picked up a lot more of the
Spoiler:
nods towards Sync scattered throughout the campaign. Enough to see that the Chondral, Generation, Incontrovertible -- even the player character -- were acting out roles from Sync, all reinforcing the idea that the Transcendent is Alpha 3 from Sync. It was very cool.

White Noise is an awesome, challenging mission in an unconventional way. I found the best way to handle the, er, final challenge was to cut throttle to zero and become a turret.

Hmm, last mission's way too hard. Guess I'll have to complete it in Easy mode

Edit: I tried to fix it with that updated mission file, now I broke it... Guess I'll just skip to the end cinematic.

NOOOOO! The end cinematic is brilliant.

Here's my tactics for White Noise:

Spoiler:
Boost engine power and afterburn to Omega 1. Position yourself behind her. As soon as she turns hostile (maybe before?) hit her with your primaries only. Follow her and kill her with primaries; her ship is too slow to avoid you.

Help your wingmates finish off their targets, but take no hull damage.

When your wingmates die and are absorbed, use Harpoons on them. Whenever they turn towards you to attack, fire at their lead indicator with Subachs, and they'll turn away.

Once you've killed them both, your hull will reset to max. Hit zero throttle and wait for the Transcendent to attack. Once he does, it's game over -- just aim at him and keep firing, WITHOUT MOVING. Whenever he turns towards you, fire at him, and he'll break off upwards. Strafe after him and keep shooting.

He'll die after a dozen or so passes like this (maybe more.)

Get VLC or an appropriate codec. It's worth the effort for the 'wow' factor.

Hey!  Sorry I haven't posted anything within the past few weeks.  I been playing my 360.  Anyways, within the few weeks that past, I made a sneek peek video of Ransome's Transcend ModI REALIZE I'M A LITTLE LATE TO POST THE VIDEO, BUT I MADE IT JUST FOR THE PEOPLE ARE LOOKING AT DOWNLOADING THE MOD!!!  Either way, I feel like I put a little too much of the mod into the video, so I desided to post a link so you guys can take a look at it and tell me what you think.  One of my friends took a look at my video and he aggreed that the video was very creepy.

ALSO, I'M SORRY ABOUT THE SPEED OF THE GAMEPLAY CLIPS!  AS YOU ALL KNOW, TRANSCEND REQUIRES THE FS2 SCP TO RUN SO THE DETAILING OF THE SCP'S MODELS AND THE ENVIORNMENT ATE UP ALOT OF MY COMPUTER'S RESOURCES DURING RECORDING!  I'LL TRY TO PUT AN INCREASED SPEED EFFECT TO INCREASE THE SPEED OF THE GAMEPLAY CLIPS!

Lay off the unnecessary caps.

The text bits were a bit annoying. The one in the beginning was a tad bit hard to read. The "Did you see that?" thing seemed to thoroughly take its time before going away. And personally I think that a psychological horror campaign such as Transcend doesn't really need a promotional video that might spoil some bits.

But if people like it, knock yourselves out.

Edit: And... it's Ransom. No "e" at the end.

OK.  Well, you can't blame someone for trying. 

Also, about the caps, I do that so that it'll stand out for the people who just skim through it.
