Dammit. I'm about 30 mins from having an 8 player gauntlet mission completed and I only have 5 left in which to work on it before we start :p Ah well. Maybe if you guys don't mind a lack of briefing and a placeholder debriefing we can try it anyway and see how many mistakes I've made since I haven't had time to test it :p

Post it up here for next time. It sounds like we'll have a couple of new things to play then. :) I'll also get the two others you posted earlier and the one ShivanSpS mentioned.

I'll ask Taylor to put that Dragon's Teeth conversion up on the server as well, so there will be more than just Black Omega to play when we get a lot of people.

The 12-player Dragon's Teeth should now be validated. :) This should clear up the immediate issue of having no real co-op to play when a lot of people come. If you don't have it, it's available here.

At some in the future, we should probably look over the existing missions and fix the most glaring bugs in them (like the unprotected freighters in Robin Hood), and maybe also remove some stuff that doesn't really belong there (Black Omega and one or two others).

I'm with you on that. Most of those fixes are 5 minute jobs for bugs that should never have gotten through alpha-testing anyway :p

I'm also thinking that once we have the fixes done and the new/modified missions that are in the works are done and validated, we should compile a new VP instead of just releasing the missions seperately, and then get validation removed for unfixable/terminally flawed missions (*cough* Black Omega *cough*). Which reminds me, there's also some garbage in the current VP that doesn't belong there at all (at least 3 half-finished single player missions, for example), which is another good reason to just redo it from scratch.

Yeah, we might as well recompile the VP once we have some of these things settled. The current one was made by Hunter, and as far as I can see he just packed up everything that happened to be in his missions folder. :p

I will join you tonight hopefully. If I lag it is because of my Anti-Virus, which craped out on me a few weeks back... :ick:

Oops, almost forgot to post that gauntlet mission. It's barely changed from last week due to lack of any free time to improve it in, but at least I added a quick briefing which is mostly copy/pasted from STV gauntlet :p

I was about to ask about that actually. I'm grabbing all the missions posted earlier in this thread before I start.

Sorry for the delay, my mouse was acting funny and I had to reboot a few times to get it fixed. I'm starting it now.
