Re: Campaign of the Week - The Lightning Marshal
OK, a series of posts will probably follow with more bugs, but here's one off the start:

Warning: Can't open model file <starfield01.pof>
File:J:\src\cvs\fs2_open_3_6_9.final\code\Model\ModelRead.cpp
Line: 1904
[This filename points to the location of a file on the computer that built this executable]

Call stack:
------------------------------------------------------------------
    model_load()    stars_set_background_model()    stars_post_level_init()    game_post_level_init()    game_start_mission()    game_enter_state()    gameseq_set_state()    game_process_event()    gameseq_process_events()    game_main()    WinMain()    WinMainCRTStartup()    kernel32.dll 7c816fd7()
------------------------------------------------------------------

Getting that when loading mission 1.  It's not a showstopper, clicking no kicks you back to the load screen and you continue from there.

(Note that I'm running this campaign through the debug build expressly to identify these little issues).

Oh, and you start in the engine wake of the Actium in Mission 1... literally almost in the engine.

Re: Campaign of the Week - The Lightning Marshal
One more thing... this is my nitcpicking coming out again, but the grammar in the briefings is absolutely atrocious.  Which brings me to a question about the scope of this project... are we merely updating campaigns to run with the latest SCP build and remove bugs, or are we improving them too?  I'd be quite happy to go through and edit the briefings.

Feel free to change that. As long as we're not talking about massive edits I think minor changes to text should be permissible.

Re: Campaign of the Week - The Lightning Marshal
Was that campaign ever finished? If no, is there a possibility to finish it?

Yes and No.

LM was released in chapters, so while the full campaign was never actually completed, four out of the proposed seven (I think) chapters were released as fully playable independent minicampaigns.

Then aside from just restoring it, would it be possible to make a effort to finish it?

Re: Campaign of the Week - The Lightning Marshal
That's outside our scope, isn't it?  We restore them.  We don't finish them.  If we finished them, then we might not have time to restore others, I'm guessing.  (Although I do precious little here*)

*read: none yet... :(

Re: Campaign of the Week - The Lightning Marshal
Nobody seemed terribly interested in Lightning Marshal.  I did post up LM1 with all LS backgrounds and nameplates, but got little feedback or interest.  Oh well.
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.

That's a campaign new members will surely play. And we started with Warzone, not a campaign like S:AH ;)

LM 1 and 2 are kind of crap.  But LM 3 and 4 are very good.

Out of boredom, I made a quick reskin of the HTL Orion to make it look like the Liberty.
