Re: RELEASE - The Procyon Insurgency
Dammit, I'm getting some wicked nostalgia hearing that Earthsiege 2 redux, where did you get that? Is there more reduxes of the Earthsiege 2 soundtrack other than the one in this campaign? I must have them!

Probably not. This entire campaign is a closed circuit.

Yes, from the GTVA's point of view. ;)

It's safe to say that there will not be a sequel though. I had some very rough ideas at one point but lack the time or motivation to take it any further.

I only used that one here. The music is stored as audio tracks on the game's CD, so you can easily get them from there.

Seriously?! DAMMIT! I never managed to get those out of the CD.
At least I'm going back home where I have the disk in under three weeks.

Re: RELEASE - The Procyon Insurgency
Just finished this campaign, and I hope you're not tired of praise, because PI is one of the best campaigns I've played. Not to mention, the hardest, even after turning down the difficulty from Medium to Easy. I don't think I've died so much before. I'll admit, I used cheats a few times (Mission 9, 15 and 17a, I was getting frustrated) and failed-five-times-skipped two missions (the one where you have to stay near the Agni into the portal, and then the 30-seconds-escape one - also incidentally the first time I've facilitated this). However, completing the one where you place the drone onto the transport made me feel good. Maybe sometime I'll try it again without cheating.

Also, the sheer atmosphere of the nebula mission was so well done, and IMO was all down to the music. The ambient track of Silent Threat M10 is a great atmosphere piece unaltered, but what was done here was amazing. I'm a bit apprehensive of Transcend now!

Spoiler:
Although after the bit where it says that humans were descendants of the Ancients, I now keep seeing things weird. Like 'people who were once an all-powerful civilization actually made stuff like this' thoughts when I see something, stuff like that  :eek2: . Even though it isn't real. Funny, really, as stuff such as the Racnoss-ship-as-Earth's-core and the Vashta Nerada on Doctor Who, and the past civilization in The Six Sacred Stones didn't affect me like that.  :nod:

But anyway, great work on this campaign!

EDIT: This bit of Devil's Gallop would fit perfectly as replacement music for the 30-seconds-escape mission in my opinion. Not that it should be changed, I was just listening to it and thought '30 seconds? Perfect for the PI 30-seconds-escape mission!'. However, it doesn't fit the mood of PI. If it was more comic, then maybe.

Sorry if I spoil everything, but
Spoiler:
how long have you waited? There is a non-rendered cutscene where the Knossos breaks down, an alien ship jumps in, the alien ship blows up the Hattie and the Hattie breaks the alien ship's big-arse beam cannon. Soon after this the cutscene ends and you'll once again be able to play.
If you cannot move even after this, you've obviously broken something.

Sorry, I didn't notice your post until now. I think that piece would be more appropriate in JAD or the like though, or maybe in one of the numerous easter eggs in this. :D

I can't really tell where your problem is occurring. Did the cutscene fully play out? Did you get the loading screen for the next mission?

That won't necessarily fix it, as there are still some red alert related issues in 3.6.10.

Re: RELEASE - The Procyon Insurgency
well the Hattie indeed blows up that big arse beam cannon after this however i get the usual loading screen for the next mission (if there was suposed to be some sort of incoming message like you get when you have to do something else in the middel of a mission or something it doesnt show me !

After the loading screen i see the Ancient warship some Pegasus stealth fighters ducking it out with...er.... dont know who....i used time compresion for about 120 minutes and the battle still goes on. and nothing i cant move cant fire nothing.....


So bummer i hope that this is the last mission otherwise i would be really disapointed if i can not pass this mission to finish this campaign that has been keeping me at my pc for a few hours :D

Re: RELEASE - The Procyon Insurgency
Very brilliant . . . and infuriating difficult campaign. (Not necessarily a bad thing)  :D

I especially like how there are "super-bonus" objectives . . . managed to get 60% rating at the end of campaign.
The stealth missions were so hard that I had to cheat my way through.  :lol:

You can't really cheat in a stealth mission, elie.

I think I'm making a point by saying that stealth missions are the only ones that truly test how good you are at flying about unseen.

Actually you can. Just ~k all the enemy fighters that can detect you - the cruisers and transports won't trip you out.  :nod:
