Problem in Silent Threat FSPort
hello.....as i finished all retail campaigns as well as fs port i tried to do the silent thread campaign

but now im stuck after the mission
"field of destruction"
where i have to rescue a destroyer. it´s a red alert mission

problem:
black screen in cockpit. when i go to the tail-camera i can see everything, but inside the cockpit.....nothing!
only a few hud-displays.....

it seems fsport has not transfered the ship from the mission before....i also cannot accelerate or move my "invisible" ship.....it´s just stuck.....

has anyone a solution?

thanks in advance
icey

Red-alert bug. Edit the mission in FRED or notepad and remove the red alert tag.

Re: Problem in Silent Threat FSPort
hmm.....still not running because still no weapons available. tried to install weapons in fred, but does not work :-(

edit:
hmm..maybe this is because i get the message, that there are unknown ship/weapon classes in the mission!?

i dont know how to proceed

FSport needs to be in its own mod folder.

Re: Problem in Silent Threat FSPort
Can you at least post the error messages? When they first pop up, just paste them somewhere.

Re: Problem in Silent Threat FSPort
the main problem seemed to based on the fred-editor. it doesnt know the fsport weapons.

so i deleted the edited mission, copied the original one out of the vp-file and opened it in the normal notepad editor and did it manually, means removing the red alert and adding weapons to the ships. so it works......

but i still do not know, why fred was not able to edit the mission properly.....message:
FRED encountered unknown ship/weapon classes when parsing the mission file. This may be due to mission disk you do not have.

and after that fred tels me, that the playership does not have weapons

Re: Problem in Silent Threat FSPort
Easy... you have to tell FRED which mod to use.  In this case, FSPort & mediavps.  So, do this:

"c:\games\freespace2\FRED2_Open_3_6_9.exe" -mod fsport, mediavps -fredhtl

The -fredhtl needs to be last.  The -mod fsport, mediavps tells it to use fsport primarily, and whatever it can't find there, to find in mediavps, and after that it will find stuff in normal FS2 directories.  Do you understand now?  FS2_Open .exe does the same thing, but the Launcher does it for you to make it easy, using the "select MOD" feature.
