That was really fun And CP, that mission of yours is crazy. First time I've run out of respawns, though half of those were due to the AI camping the respawn point
I guess I am becoming infamous for this kind of thing.
On the plus side though, you can rack up kills very quickly when the Vasudans swarm that respawn area. I ended up with 59.
And yet we nearly had it. Just gotta be a bit faster at taking out the main turrets on the heavier warships and we keep the corvette alive. 5% more health when the final destroyer jumps in and we got it.
[Edit] Also interesting to note that in the beginning, we actually had more players there than the game supports. And this stuff is only just getting started
We actually did very well, as that mission and the OOG medal is supposed to be one of the toughest to get among the validated ones. There should generally be one person focusing solely on defending the corvette after it arrives (first taking down the Bakhas and later the beam cannons), but I forgot about that when the Hatshepsut initially refused to show up.
And yeah, it was great to see so many people. We can try a dogfight next time we get that many. There will be another session later tonight, so hopefully we'll get a nice turnout again.
I'll check which missions give medals and under what conditions they do so before we play next time.
Something freaky just happened. My computer crashed, for some strange reason. I started it back up and tried to join the game again as observer. FreeSpace crashed on me and it says "FreeSpace has encountered an error and must close blablabla." Then I tried again, and then it said "cannot join because another person is trying to join the game at this time. Try again later". Then, after a while, it said "Join request rejected because identical player is already playing." For the rest of the Sirius blockade mission, it did that for me. Then, after the game had ended and I turned off my Laptop, it said "Online Users: Snail"...
The double user thing is a known problem. In any case, the ingame joining feature is unfinished and doesn't quite work at this point. I think the game is not supposed to let you do it at all, actually.
Meh, I think it was an overheat
Post your system specs. There are various programs available to monitor hardware temperatures. We can check if anything looks off the wall.
