The mediavps always seem to manage to **** with the Shivan beams in some way. Strange.

Boystrous 19 year old temp at work slapped me in the face with an envelope and laughed it off as playful. So I shoved him over a desk and laughed it off as playful. It's on camera so I can plead reasonable force.  Temp is now passive.

Sadly, the downloads don't support the resume option. This is bad because I'll never be able to DL big files without experiencing any connection problems that force me to restart the DL. :(
ever heard of torrents or download managers?

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.10 Media VPs
People (Rick James, SF-Junky, ...) having issues with shivan beams... Post your graphics card info as well as graphics driver version (if possible) here.

If you do not know it then use the launcher to select a debug build, run it once (up to main hall should be enough). Quit the game. Search for a file named 'fs2_open.log' and attach it to your post or post it within 'code' tags.

 :lol:


Well... none of us testers have had anything like what ShadowGorrath's screenie demonstrates. It's pretty bizarre to have one single effect (group, probably just a single texture used by many beams) getting consistently corrupted when the file itself is perfectly intact on the VP.

You're right, the mediaVP's have probably evolved to have some sort of sapience and sense of tradition... :shaking:

I tried with Star Downloader with the mirror links. I don't think I can use FSMods and Star Downloader at the same time(it'll surely end up DLing the link pic and not the file itself).

Go to the page where the downloads are linked (press the image).

Copy the download link(s).

Paste into your DL manager. Commence downloading.


Or, just copy the FSMods download links from the opening message of this thread... They are direct links to the files.

Looks like I shouldn't have excluded FSMods links. Thanks. :)

And by the way, that pic(phrase excluded) combines two things I love. Nice... :yes:

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.10 Media VPs
The shivan beam issue looks like it could be corruption of the animation in the beam itself - the shivan beams are the only ones that use an EFF in their firing. I would suggest trying it again without MV_Advanced and see if the same thing happens.

If multiple people are experiencing this, then my guess is that it's a corrupted file in the upload of MV_Advanced. Those of you experiencing issues, which method did you use to download? MV_Complete through FSMods or torrent, or the individual files through FSMods or torrent?

I downloaded the FS mod individual files, and I can confirm there's no such beam issue with that ones MV_Advanced. :)

Anyway, I'll be away for the next 4 days, so I'll have to let the others sort it out.

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.10 Media VPs
I just downloaded and tested the mv_complete pack and all the beams seem to be working fine. Also, the new builds are getting really efficient. Last time I tried playing with adveffects I was lagging all over the place and now it's going very smooth. I <3 the SCP and FSU people.

PS: The new warp effect is made of pure win.

I believe the problem occurs when Advanced is not in use, based on what ShadowGorrath told in #hard-light.

Yeah, and I can vouch that no such issue happens without the Advanced either, but there it is on some people's systems...


Mysteriously, the files in question seem to be perfectly all right on the MV_Effects.vp, but something happens that corrupts the Shivan beam effects after or perhaps while they are cached to system ram and/or video ram. I have no idea what could cause such a specific corruption. :confused:

Any more feedback on wether the missiletrail thing and ship names in the campaign were intended or if it's an oversight?

Edit: Also: Cain/Lilith model mixup?

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.10 Media VPs
I've been using the SVN checkout and not the VPs, so I'm guessing I have advanced in use myself, and have yet to see it, so I can't rule out that it doesn't exist for me at all.  I'll try it without advanced later.

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.10 Media VPs
Can't say for the missile trails as I didn't work on those, but the nameplate issues are a problem with the shaders that we couldn't fix. :(

The Non-Advanced beams work just fine for me as well - so if it is a corrupt upload, it's not in the FSMods individual files.

The cain/lilith are as Lightspeed released them AFAIK.

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.10 Media VPs
I can confirm that all missiles are using the same gray trail--even the Stiletto, which shouldn't have a trail at all!

In mv_effects-wep.tbm in MV_Effects every single missile has their trail set to MissileTrail01. Who did this and why? :mad:

On the bright side, the wibbly wobbly Knossos warp is wonderful.

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.10 Media VPs
nameplate issues

Not talking about the nameplates, I'm talking about the names of the ships in the missions. In the previous versions of the MVPs, at least the betas and 3.6.8 zetas, the Aquataine, for example, was just called Aquataine, GTD Hecate. Now they're back to (I think) original, i.e it says GTD Aquataine, GTD Hecate.

I don't know if that was intentional or not.

The cain/lilith are as Lightspeed released them AFAIK.

Hmm, that's weird. I checked the beta MVPs and they're switched around now. The Cain is now the armoured looking one and the Lilith is the black looking one.

Edit: The models themselves haven't been changed, only the mv_models-shp.tbm file

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.10 Media VPs
So will the missile trail thing get fixed soon?

Heh, now I cant load the mission with the Actium and Lysander. . . Probably a build issue though, as it loads up, and instead of showing the briefing, I get a 'FS has encountered an error and needs to close. Send or don't send report'. . . The universe is against me playing FS2 with the new mediavps. . .
