Can someone please make a .fc2 file that lets me skip mission 13? It keeps crashing right at the end before I can jump out.

Where exactly is it crashing? If you're having trouble with the mission, reducing the difficulty level will make it much easier, but this certainly shouldn't be happening.

Which is why i decided to fly one :pimp:

So, question is now; Are the guys behind PI considering a sequel?

It's just me. You could say I'm considering it, but I don't really want to get started on anything unless I know I can commit enough time to see it to completion, which is looking unlikely at the moment.

The one mission i couldnt complete was the turrets mission against the saturn. Even though i took out 15, still said i failed.

You probably missed one somewhere that you thought you destroyed. I know the mission works fine in this respect. You get a message every time you get 5, 10, 15, etc.

I was originally planning to make an extra HUD gauge for that mission that would show exactly how many turret kills you racked up, but that required certain features of the scripting system that the 3.6.9 builds didn't support (and the HEAD builds that did support it had a lot of other bugs). I may be able to add that in an update when 3.6.10 comes out though.

Yer, the problem was the damn fighters kept coming after me. I loaded up a myrmidon with all the other ships with stillettos, but they kept hogging the support ship :ick:

It crashes a little bit after when the Anaxar blows up, and Command tells you to jump out.

Re: RELEASE - The Procyon Insurgency
just fail/die/jump out early 5 times and it'll ask you if you want to skip

Re: RELEASE - The Procyon Insurgency
Try playing it in a debug build. It may let you jump out properly there. It sounds like the same sort of random crash that someone else brought up a few pages ago. I don't really know why only a few people are encountering those, but they have something to do with the game rather than the campaign itself.

Since you've already seen everything in the mission though, the method Game_Master64 suggested would also work well.

Replacing the campaign or current mission files tends to cause pilot problems of its own and is usually not a good idea.

 
Re: RELEASE - The Procyon Insurgency
hey man, question, How did you do the whole score/ranking system through the campaign, where you get a tally at the end?

I got 30  ;)

Re: RELEASE - The Procyon Insurgency
Not bad. The score basically tallies up how many optional goals (secondary and bonus) you completed throughout the campaign, aside from some of the really trivial ones. You might have noticed the HUD showing a +1 or +2 when certain objectives were met. It indicates that you scored a point for that objective. There are 20 of them in total.

What's the record so far? Has anyone got close to 100? :p

There are a few small things I will be changing with this though. One or two objectives are too easy/hard for what they give you, and there also needs to be some way to measure the difficulty setting at which you're getting the points. This should be easy to incorporate in an update.

Re: RELEASE - The Procyon Insurgency
There's a bug in the scoring system, since I played through with the express purpose of getting every single point, on Medium.  (That's mainly why I was so tenacious in my review.)  I had to cheat on the mission where you destroy the turrets (but since I couldn't even get to 15, I figured that that mission deserved cheating on), but I managed to get every point.  However, the last mission said I only got a 72% or something. :doubt:

Re: RELEASE - The Procyon Insurgency
Weird. I got the exact same score on my last playthrough before the release, but I fixed something that I thought was causing it and didn't think much further about it. I will take a closer look. It is obviously working at lower numbers and must be running into a block at that point.

How exactly does the game do division when the result is not an integer? I'm guessing it just truncates or rounds the result to an integer, but am not sure.

Re: RELEASE - The Procyon Insurgency
It does standard C division, which I think uses truncation, not rounding.  But 20/20 is 1, so that shouldn't matter.

Don't worry. There's no such thing as the perfect pilot. ;)

You moron. Goober did it on Insane.

Re: RELEASE - The Procyon Insurgency
Here.  Search is a pain in the butt.  No results found, because I searched "bearbaiting goober video", when, as we all should know, the correct search term was "bearbaiting video" (no, i didn't use quotes).

Interesting...Not sayin that any cheating is/was involved, but when you just look at the video, you can't really tell if the tables were altered for extra damage or something.
