I'm pretty sure everyone would do that if they thought it was really a good idea. It's not necessary.

Hmm. The use of caps...

THIS IS A GOOD USE OF CAPS.

It is clear and concise. It draws attention to the point without being overly annoying. However, you can also achieve the same thing with red text:

Your computer will explode if you use this

UNLIKE THE PREVIOUS EXAMPLE, WHICH WAS RATHER SUCCINCT AND QUITE CLEAR, THIS EXAMPLE IS MORE OF A PARAGRAPH. IT IS NOT DONE VERY WELL AND REQUIRES LOTS OF READING IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND WHAT'S ACTUALLY BEING SAID BY THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ACTUALLY READING THIS STATEMENT. THE POINT IS BURIED IN THE MIDDLE OF SHOUTING.

Hi,

I have just downloaded the file from the 1st post in the thread. When using the installer it shows the Transcend mod and when I hit run it opens for a second then I get the error below:


Error: weapons.tbl(line 512:
Error: Required token = [#End] or [$Name:], found [@Laser Glow: 2_laserglow03]
in weapon: GTVA Rapid Laser.

File:J:\src\cvs\fs2_open_3_6_9.final\code\Parse\PARSELO.CPP
Line: 659

I had just finished PI and it was working fine. I changed it to the 3.6.9 after completing and then tried to run Transcend.  What did I forget to do?

The GTVA Rapid Laser is an Inferno R1 weapon. You must have messed something up in your FS2 folder. Do you have INFR1?

Yes it is in the INFR1 folder under the main. C:\Games\FreeSpace2\INFR1
Transcend is C:\Games\FreeSpace2\Transcend

 I just moved the entire INFR1 folder out of FreeSpace2 directory and still recieved the same error.

Check your FS2/data folder and your Transcend folder. Look for any suspicious tables.

As far as I remember Transcend doesn't use the GTVA Rapid Laser.

I found INF_main.vp in the C:\Games\FreeSpace2 folder, i moved it out and it looks like its working fine. I started the campaign and it at first it threw me with the training mission coming up first. I thought I was running FS2 retail.

I didn"t recognize the begining of the first mission so I guess its fine.

Thank you for the help.

No problem, it happened to me a few times...I knew you were experiencing something similar... :)

What is up with the last second of gameplay in the final mission? I start heading back to the Kennan and then everything vanishes.

Does Kappa 1 turn into another Transcendent?

 
No, he just goes on leading a normal, quiet pilot life.

But what would there be to elaborate on now that the Transcendant doesn't exist?

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

Ahem.. Well, I think the ending is rather well done.

Spoiler:
After you kill the Transcendent, the OGG movie shows the game unfold - backwards. This takes you all the way back to the first mission. But the three pilots never come to grab you. That way, you never start on the path to finding the Transcendent. As he doesn't exist. This begs the question, now, if that wing even exists now, or if the Sage is still around? I'm getting all tingly, just remembering the plot. Transcend perspires win.

Spoiler:
That wing still exists. The only reason they picked you up in the first place was because they lost a member and needed a replacement. That member was the one who was flying the loki in the second last mission because the Transcendence killed him earlier. Now that the Transcendence never existed, the guy in the loki never died and is still a part of the wing. [spoiler/]
If I agreed with you, we would both be wrong

Spoiler:
But if I recall correctly, in the last frame or two of the OGG you see the trancendant.  This gave me the impression the he actually reset everything.

Spoiler:
Now that you mention it, I went back and watched the OGG. I did see the Transcendent, right at the end. It is possible he's still alive. How's that for a twist?

But... what would it be? If we interpret that part of the cutscene,
Spoiler:
then we could assume that history wasn't repaired and everything will just happen again. Or some cliché stuff. Transcend was and is an excellent, full story. A sequel would only do harm to it.

I'm not sure. I think that Transcend 2 could have that same air of creepiness. It would be a challenge, but it would be amazing.

IMO it's fine the way it is, it ended well, story closed.
