Interceptor missile missing in advanced training#2
I already did a search on this matter and found some topics. Unfortunately I didn't understand the solution and i still have this problem:

on the advanced training mission#2 my ship is told to hit a target with the interceptor missiles, but my ship isn't even loaded with them. What can i do?

I heard someone that they have gone through a ships.tbl file, but i can't even find that.

Can anyone help me? I'm really stuck on this one :(

Re: Infiltrator missile missing in advanced training#2
You're running the demo. You need to get the full SCP from your nearest retailer. J/k. . . . . .go to FreeSpaceMods.net and get a .vp viewer. Vp's are like FreeSpace zip files without compression.

Re: Infiltrator missile missing in advanced training#2
Ah Lobo... I tried the fix but it didn't work :(

i put it in the FsPort directory, but with now avail... any advice? I didn't do anything else other than zipping it in that folder..

Re: Infiltrator missile missing in advanced training#2

:confused: Dang, this is the second time in a row when someone complains that the fix doesn't work. I really need to test it again to see if there's something funny about it. And you probably meant unzipping, which is precisely what you need to do. Hmm... I hope you just added the fix file to the fsport folder instead of, for example, removing the original mission vp and putting this one in instead.

don't you put it in fsport/data?
I'm so 1337 that I've made a vp to make things easier for those who need the fix.

Edit: Okee-dokee, this seems to be yet another case of highly spiritual ****. I tested the training mission. It worked, I had Interceptors. So, I thought to myself "Hey, why don't I try it without the fix", so I removed the fix vp and made sure there isn't an extra mission file in any relevant folders. Then I try again and... it still worked.  Sigh... sometimes I'm scared that artificial intelligence might already be reality.

Delfino, if you are really unable to get the training mission to work, you can always skip it. There's a "Skip training" button on the upper-right corner of the briefing screen. Just hit it and you can continue with the campaign. It's not that big a deal anyways. The instructor will just teach you how to use the Interceptors, which, in short, just means that you wait until that circling triangle has locked onto your target before you fire any missiles. Oh, and they say something about the shields.

Re: Infiltrator missile missing in advanced training#2
Hiya peeps,

I too have this same problem with Advanced Training #2.
I'm using fs2_open_3_6_9 with Freespace 2 Open Launcher 5.5C, and fsport3_0_4.

So why does it work for some people and not for others?  :confused:

By the way, I don't see anything that looks like a "Useful Stuff link" anywhere in your signature Lobo. I guess it wasn't that useful after all. *Sigh*  :wtf:

Re: Infiltrator missile missing in advanced training#2
It was useful. But then I noticed that FreeSpaceMods is more useful.

But the whole mission thing is a rather spiritual thing. Originally, I too had problems with it. Then I found a post by Goober, where he had attached a fixed version of the mission file. Then it worked. Later, I did a couple of reinstalls on my rig and backed up my FreeSpace poorly, thus losing the mission file. And the original attachment was gone too. A while back, some friendly person provided me a link to the mission file since he had downloaded it earlier and still had it. Oh joy, I thought. But no. It didn't work. It was the same ****ing file, but no dice.

And to make things more interesting, I've sometimes succesfully played the training mission without having the fixed version.

In short, just skip it. There is a "Skip training" button on the upper right corner of the screen during the mission briefing.

Probably belongs to the same series as "Turley's open installer". But it's just on the thread title. It says "Interceptor" on the posts.

Encountered this problem and made fix in 5 minutes... It was my first use of FRED and VPVIEW32...

Download btm-05.fs2 from attachment and place it in \fsport\data\missions\
It will override that one inside fsport-fs1_training.vp

PS: Changed loadouts: "Inerceptors#Weak" to "Interceptors"... It still works...

Re: Interceptor missile missing in advanced training#2
Hmm. I could have sworn I attempted that very same thing once and it didn't work. Of course, I was using Notepad; the mission editor for real men.

In any case, I'll give it a shot once I get home.
