Hello, I'm new here but I have played FS1 twice and I feel love for this fine space sim, and I'm loving what you guys are doing with FS2 :)

I'd like to ask if everything needed to play this campaign is in the 44MB file, the other links in the first post are broken.

Everything necessary is in the 44 MB file.

Well, you'll need FS2 Open if you don't already have it. Newest version's here. You may also want the MediaVPs, although they're technically optional - without them it'll just mean you won't have backgrounds in the missions. For those, follow the instructions in this thread.

I should update the OP.

I should update the OP.

You should do that with your signature, too :)

I replayed Transcend a few days ago - and still - besides some lengths - it's one of the creepiest and deepest campaigns to date :yes:

The link to the patch in the first post is broken.  Perhaps renaming it to something more meaningful than patch.rar will prevent it from being removed from the download site.

I already have a copy of Transcend, but am re-downloading it to avoid issues.  The update descriptions are kinda confusing because you posted a patch for the first update, but not the second.  Please make the description more clear.

I must say, it got to be pretty hectic when...


Spoiler:
Everyone was out to kill each other.  And damn, I actually LIKED the Generation following us around, making an even bigger mess of everything.  I still wonder why command was going berserk and ordering a small fleet after 3 freaking "pirates" though.  Maybe the transcendant messed with Command's head too.


I just wish I could have had at least a normal promethius cannon in addition to that laser through the whole mess, instead of that refit model.  Fighting waves of high-end fighters with entry-level guns got annoying after a while.  Especially since the Herc Mk2 has only 4 guns, unlike the original herc.  I mean, 4 gun points isn't bad once you get access to some mid-level weaponry, but I always tried to use myrmidons when I had to deal with fighters until some came available in the original FS2 campaign. 

Hell, in post-lucifer Solar system campaigns, I usually end up using the herc instead of the random fighters the EA or Jovians or others come up with, when it is available.  Because the thing is just that awesome.  Oh yeah, and because it doesn't do a 360 when I push the joystick all the way in one direction for half a second.  I never did understand why the people who made those campaigns seemed to like such overly manueverable fighters. 





 
The link for the campaign is broken, any other place to download?

 
It's here on FreeSpaceMods. Enjoy!

I think I beat the campaign but I want to be sure my game didn't glitch or something.

The final mission was defeating "Transcendant" (in a Pegasus stealth fighter in subspace)...and the ending was kind of a time warp back to the first mission where you dock on a destroyer and continue a 'normal' life rather than following the three fighters into the node...

Did I get that right?

Yes. Did you get to see the ****ing awesome rewind cutscene before the final mission?

Yes I did see that.  That and the slo mo segments were pretty cool.

Is this campaign compatible with mediavps_2014 ?
(if nobody has tried it yet, i could do a play through...)

Probably. Give it a spin.

Oh, while we're here, does anyone know what the best version of this to download is?

I grabbed Sync and Windmills with the stuff from the Campaign Restoration Project, but they didn't do Transcend. I'd like to add it to my collection as well.

I just checked both, the only changes are 2 lines in the ReadMe. Timestamps on all the other files are the same.

(I may have to re-upload this campaign, as the mediavps reference is wrong. Then I'll do a mod file for my installer script)
The mod.ini should be changed to
Code: [Select]
secondarylist = mediavps_2014;or
Code: [Select]
secondarylist = mediavps_3612;If you are using wxLauncher, restart it after modifying the mod.ini.  It looks like mods are only parsed once when wxLauncher starts.

Have been playing Transcend (about 10 missions) with mediavps_2014 since yesterday, haven't seen any issues so far. Using the Jan 05 nightly.
