Re: I dont get it. What is out and what isnt?
As Woomeister said time ago voice acting would delay the release of several months. INFA1 and INFA2 will probably be voice acted in a second moment, after the release.
Explain what you mean.

"Second moment" is an Italian phrase meaning the immediate future. So I could say "I'll FRED in a second moment."

Re: I dont get it. What is out and what isnt?
I don't mind helping with what little free time I have nowadays, but frankly I don't know what I can contribute to. I don't have any solid, dependable skills.

My FRED experience is mish-mash from FRED1 and any real FREDder can probably do what I can do, and do it more efficiently too. And perhaps make more variations between missions instead of the usual "frag a bunch of enemies, defend a single/few target(s)". Tables at an extremely basic level too. Most of what I did always ended up turning into M.A.D. AI fights where the player never really did play a role in the final outcome of the battle (although the missions could probably end faster with a more assured level of winning if the player did play his/her role). :doubt:

TheHound: "Nice idea, but I have a thing against announcing campaigns before having them already finished."
G5K: "The flipside of that is that if you don't announce your campaign, yet take too long to finish it, other people may independently come up with some of the same ideas."

Not immediate future but generally "after". The campaign'll probably get voice acted after a while...in any case, not before the first INFA SA release.

You'll have something new... :D

Re: I dont get it. What is out and what isnt?
You guys need to clean up these forums. Get rid of the threads full of festering broken image links and have one unified "DOWNLOADS" thread that is actually readable.

All this discussion of different versions of released projects that are being remade while other projects are spun-off from the original release while a seperate team spins-off to remake the original release is making my brain melt all over my new keyboard.

I love your work please continue.  :yes:

The stickied threads are the only ones which really matter, the rest are just the insane rantings of a once great person.

I guess we should get a "guide to Inferno" thread or something then.

S:AH - Sol: A History. Alternate campaign about Sol after the Lucifer disaster. Made by Blaise Russel. An amazing campaign, I have yet to play it as I can't get it to work. (Fan-Made)

      How do you know it's amazing if you've never played it?

When 99% of those who play it say it's amazing, chances are, it is. (And it IS pretty damn good).

And I've now played it, and hold firm to that description.

     I've never quite understood all the hullabaloo over S:AH myself.
     INF:R1 was far more memorable.

Re: I dont get it. What is out and what isnt?
I don't get what's so awesome about S:AH either.
I utterly hate that mission where you have to defend two Fenris though (in S:AH).
Its impossible.
The Hercs just jump in and splash one with a single volley of hornets...and then you finish off one wave andg o like "oh well, I can pass with one", then another wing jumps in and smashes the other one.
If by some miracle they survive, Medusas and Ursas warp in...and finally, CTD when they're about to jump out :hopping: Got that a few times, then gave up on S:AH.

Re: I dont get it. What is out and what isnt?
It's not epic, but it's a good campaign. What I don't see is the hype about BP. Sure it was good, but I found it quite buggy, and although original, not as "WOW" as people make it out to be.

        I didn't encounter any bugs myself, but enjoyed it overall. Like many stories however, the latter half of the campaign was less enjoyable than the first half I think. But that's the problem, in general its hard to make a great story and its even harder to finish it with a great ending. What I enjoyed most was the presentation of the story at some places. Transcend is the one I don't understand people raving about. But anyway, this is a topic for another forum.

      Needles to say, I think the Inferno team should get around to stickying some "about Inferno Acronyms" thread so people quit asking questions. I asked the same question myself a few months ago I know.

Re: I dont get it. What is out and what isnt?
I think it'd be even better if certain team members stopped throwing around multiple acronyms per post like they were getting paid to do so.  It's not all that hard to type out "Alliance" or "Release 1" every once in a while.  Then again, the excessive use of acronyms is an idiosyncratic pet peeve of mine, so I doubt it bothers anyone else nearly as much.

        Campaign acronyms don't bother me so much as "QFT". There are certain members of the board (that is, HLP) who'll repeatedly post nothing but that in half the threads they read and ***damn it's annoying.

Re: I dont get it. What is out and what isnt?
That includes Goober, eh? :P

People should 1) Read the Wiki page about Inferno and 2) Play and know this alternate universe before posting new and confusing topics.

The Wiki page clearly indicates what's is released and what it isn't.

Re: I dont get it. What is out and what isnt?
It's really not hard to understand the acronyms. What most people find more difficult (at least in my experience) is what is inf-canon and what isn't.

        Or in other words, half the people out there think S:AH is part of the story proper.
