:jaw:

I almost had an orgasm on seeing the maps on that Artemis.  Oh, :v:, why have you denied us your high-res maps!

Fantastic images! I'm sure those will be put to good use by the community.

What are the MTS files? And are the TGAs hi-res maps?

I'm not exactly sure what the TGA Files are, but If you like I could E-Mail them to you (seeing as I have no-where to host them)

No one becomes depraved all at once.

I followed Snipes quite wide and far,
And he led us to an unknown star,
But as soon as I surveyed the scene,
A great Sathanas did fill my screen,
As it rushed forward for a jump,
The both of us seemed destined to bump,
Until I heard Snipes, not too quiet,

Dude!  Why did we never hear of this before now? :eek2: Any and every extra piece of information on Freespace is welcomed here. :)

How many outtakes are in the sounds folder?  Could you upload those as well (say, in a zip)?

EDIT: If you need hosting, this guy (PM him) can hook you up with whatever you need.  Might as well just toss the entire contents of the Extras folder on the web. :) And any extra goodies on the CDs too, in case the Extras folder is not the only extra folder there. ;)

Send me one.  (I'll PM you an e-mail address.)  If they're just orthos they'd be next to useless, but if they are high res maps, well, the Freespace gods have been laughing at us for a while.

There are 10 Sound clips, plus the Vasudantalk clip.

How do I go about uploading a Ziped file here?

Aeolus
Argo
Artemis
Bakha

TGA is a graphics format; the SCP supports them.

I know that someone here has a file upload service where we can all share it. It's crucial that we get that stuff as soon as possible; as far as I know nobody's seen this before.

Someone set this guy up!

And he's also the one who's set up the automatic file uploading page. :)

Please do go ahead and send me one of the tga files (it doesn't matter which one, though a fighter would be preferable) as I want to know what they are.  If they're orthos, then they'll be good references but there's not the urgency.  If they're maps, well, we'll need to pull a couple of people off of their pet projects. ;)

I'm looking forward to seeing this in the morning. :nod: Out of curiosity, how many TGA files are there, approximately?

Don't get your hopes up.  There're orthos using game textures.  I don't know what an MTS file is though, but it's not big enough to be a map.

They're good references, but the fact that the high-res artemis texture is lost forever makes me sad :(

Very interesting. Those Artemis textures look pretty badass, as do the ones on the Nahema. I've seen that first image before somewhere, or something a lot like it, but can't remember where. Perhaps it's on the box.

Some of the stuff is a little weird though. "Devestator" class bomber? :wtf: :D And what's with the chinese looking text in the Artemis?

It would be very good to see the rest of this stuff anyway though. :yes:

I'll be damned...I never even noticed before, but my copy (Interplay 20th Anniversary edition) has that exact same folder.  Nice find :)

 
Holy ****! I need that Artemis texture for the HTL Artemis!

More outtakes than the standard "Try saying that five times fast", "Stop laughing there, copilot!", and "You had your fun?"?

As far as I can discover, it appears that .mts files are some kind of compressed 3D geometry file.

http://www.okino.com/conv/exp_vet.htm

Theres some information in here, it may possibly be that these contain compressed FS2 models and textures, but I really couldn't say for certain.

They're still FAR too small to contain high-res textures of any kind.  The one for the Artemis specifically was only 22k.

Yeah; there's actually a few additional ones in there:

-One of the same voice as the "He's my brother" outtake that's called "freak.wav"; the guy makes some strange "wu-eh-uh!" sound :p
-One entitled "god speed.wav" with Snipes' voice saying, "This is Allied Command, signing off!  God speed, pilots!"
-One of a female pilot's voice saying, "I'm reading an unknown jump signature, configuration unknown!"
-One called "big visual.wav"  of a creepy male voice saying, "I've got a visual on something BIG!" :p
-One called "To restart the module...wav" with a male voice saying, "To restart the module, select the replay button, the re- *laughs*"
-One called "gibber.exe" with what seems to be Cordova's voice saying, "You--you want it Knossos...right? I didn't say that--I didn't say that--I--right---I di-" Sounds like he had a bad case of the stutters :p

Besides those, there's also the standard empty message, message start and end, and Vasudan voice loop.  The outtakes are definitely some good stuff, though :)

  • The GTA expects that every man will do his duty.
The MTS files are probably those that create the Metastream images on the old Freespace 2 site:

Ship Gallery
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.
