Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
Why don't you enable the jpg/tga textures from the Launcher?

I had them enabled and I have all the mediaVP's installed.  It's really weird, it was working the last time I played (before getting this campaign)
Ok... well, do you have a mod.ini in your Blue Planet folder?

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
Uh, Mars? PI's build is a little older than 3.6.9. CP5670 recommends it because it's the most bug-free build to play the procyon insurgency on.

Oh my mistake then.

I have another question: Who created the Razorback and Aim music tracks? Perhaps the most awesome battle tracks I've ever heard in FS. :D

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
Check the readme file . If it's not listed in the credits part , then Darius made it .

And if Darius doesn't mind , I can upload the soundtrack somewhere ( I managed to convert it all to mp3 ) .

And one last thing : Darius - where can I get the fleet pack that you used ? The one with the GTD Titan and GTD Raynor . I can't find it .

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
 :mad: :mad: I'm having the Alt-A trouble too. My keyboard is QWERTY but Spanish, so the letters are in the same place than English one, only some symbols are in other positions...

I've edited the mission and if I put Alt-"Unused key" (example Alt-F, Alt-K) it never works, key press is not detected  :confused: :confused:

I upload the mission with Alt-J (Subspace jump) and then it works...

(What the HELL is happening? A fsopen bug? A corrupted pilot? FYII if I press Alt-A during game I get a view of my ship from above far far away. Is this the normal Alt-A binding?)

IF YOU HAVE TROUBLES WITH FS2:
  • Please, please, please, READ and UNDERSTAND the sticky threads in FreeSpace & FreeSpace Open Support board.
    A lot of people are willing to help you, but, as anyone can understand, seeing the very same "issues" repeated again and again can become quite depressing. Please, spend a bit of time trying to solve the issue by yourself.
    (Lobo deserves a monument).
  • Then, if you aren't still able to solve your issue, feel free to ask for help in that same board.
    FYI, most of the troubles are caused by wrong mod installations which lead to either missing data or undesired cross-effects between them. Always follow the mod installation instructions and keep a clean FS2 installation as explained in the sticky threads. Two additional links about how the game handles game data:
  • If you think that you've discovered a bug, mantis it.
    Provide as much info as you can, and try to narrow it down. A lonely "FS2 doesn't work" is not a good report.

Sure go ahead. I'd do it myself, but ever since my laptop died I haven't found a wav editor replacement for Cool Edit Pro. I need something like it to join up the separate battle tracks into one song.

Fleet pack.

I'm not sure I can help you ARSPR, my knowledge of how Alt-A is implemented into the game isn't all that crash hot. As far as I know, it's used as an autopilot feature in Wing Commander.

ARSPR: Bind Alt-A to your Autopilot function in the options, that'll fix it.

Darius:  My reaction on finishing it:  :jaw: *stutter* Abuh...duba...buh..daba! HNNNN! *flail*

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
So , I'll rar the music , put in a readme with all the credits/info and upload it on filefront . One thing though - I am not going to join up all the seperate tracks into one ( since I don't know how ) and I won't rename them ( the credits in the readme will clear up which is which ) . When I will upload it , I'll put a link into this post .

Here you go - http://files.filefront.com/BluePlanetCampaignSoundtrkrar/;8745684;/fileinfo.html .

P.S. Darius , thanks for the link to the ship pack .

Thanks, it solved the problem

Just a post for other people to know if they have trouble too. In my case the problem was:
  • Key bindings in FS2 are done to its default action. Alt-A is the default Autopilot key (in Misc at the very bottom, use arrows).
  • So If you have changed Autopilot default key "Alt-A" by for example "D", "Press Alt-A" actually means press Autopilot key so you should have pressed "D".
  • In my case, I don't know why, Autopilot had no assigned key. Alt-A was assigned to Top-Down View. (I usually clone pilots, so maybe sometime, somehow, I changed it by some unclear reason). So I haven't got any valid "Alt-A" key. Assigning it again solved the problem.

Just one thing, shadow. the mp3 format breaks the continuity of the files, since they're meant to be endlessly repeating. Mp3 format seems to have broken that.

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
One way might be to use Audacity. Just open each part of a track with it, then cutcopypaste the latter parts after the first part, then export the whole mess into mp3.

Hey man I'm completely floored by this campaign. The story was immersive, the ship models were absolutly amazing, and the music was incredible! I'm gonna go through again just to hear it on good speakers and not the crappy flat pannel ones tonight. Can't wait for the next installment.

Spoiler:
oh and the fact that bei found one of his lost family members on board the sanctuary was a interesting plot twist to add in, great

It's implied that he meets his mother as well. There's clues in the dreams that he experiences aboard the Orseis in the prologue, as well as hearing both his mother and Eriana's voice in the N362 nebula. But yes, by meeting the Sanctuary Eriana and living on Earth, he's begun the process of healing and recovery from the horrors he experienced in Capella.

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
Spoiler spoils not only this campaign but also Battlestar Galactica's season 3, so read at your discretion... I have the BSG spoiler separated below the other stuff, just that you know.

Spoiler:
Although, it perhaps wouldn't be the GTVA universe's Eriana Bei, since she was from the Sancutary universe (with molten earth and what not).

Se may possibly be genetically the same Eriana Bei, but depending on the alternate universe's deviation point. It must have been definitely before the BETAC, and most likely before the Great War or possibly at the very beginnings of it, since the co-operation with Vasudans was a foreign idea to Sanctuary fighter pilots "we know of them, but not the GTVA" or something along those lines), there may or may not be common denominators in Sanctuary universe's and GTVA universe's Erianas' pasts. In which case it would be like meeting your sister's identical twin, separated at birth or something like that...

Unless there's some freak gene in the Bei family that makes their different universe personalities somehow affect each other, or if the Vishans did something to achieve that effect. I hope we'll find out that too in the later installments of the series.


......ah, too slow to answer.

So... does this Eriana has memories of dying in the exploding transport in Capella? Did the Vishans have a hand [or, well... psychotendril or whatever appendages they use to haul their souls from place A to place B] at it?
Spoiler:
Or did she somehow do a Starbuck on us and actually escape to... somewhere... from that Elysium?[/color] :nervous:

It is indeed a sign of worthy storyline for it to have awoken such rampant speculation and questions to be answered... :p
