Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
In terms of configuring FRED2?

Create a shortcut to FRED2 and in the target path add: -mod str (or whatever your ST:R folder is)
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

 
Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
I have a problem

In the "Rescue Krios" mission, Escape pod 5 and 6 (my only survivors :( ) do not dock with the GTD Orion that jumped in to retrieve them.

I am using the latest 31 december nightly build.

Yes. They just sit in open space.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Hmm. Using the wanderer build worked fine. Someone with more expertise then me should take a look at that 31 december build. Somewhat buggy.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
I've been trying to get this to work since it came out and I've just about had it. I did what VA said to do in his guide, but when I run the launcher and try to run STR I get an error saying that FreeSpace can't find 28 ship classes (obviously not reading from somewhere FS1 related, but I don't know what to do.)
Do or do not, there is no try...

Do you have the latest version of the Freespace Port? Just guessing here.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Nice campaign, but two suggestions:

Spoiler:
1. It wasn't obvious to me to shake the Shivan off my fighter with afterburners until the third time I played that particular mission. Some sort of hint in that regard in-game would have been nice.

2. In  the Ross 128 mission where the Shivans are finally wiped off the map, it's difficult for me to jump out in time before the rogue GTI fighters nail my ship with an EMP and then proceed to perforate me.

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.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
I never played the original Silent Threat, but wow! I've loved this mod so far. The missions are exciting, the graphics are more beautiful than the screenshots imply, and the story is well presented.

Negative criticism:
The difficulty progression is all over the place. One mission I might barely manage to complete after several tries, while the next is a complete joke. I'm playing on Medium.
I'm not sure whether this is an ST-R issue or an FSO one, but I have experienced a graphical glitch, where random polygons flash in and out, momentarily obscuring large segments of the screen. This happens from internal and external viewpoints, but only in a few particular missions. It happens too quickly for me to get a reliable screenshot, so I may need to make a video.

Spoiler:
In  the Ross 128 mission where the Shivans are finally wiped off the map, it's difficult for me to jump out in time before the rogue GTI fighters nail my ship with an EMP and then proceed to perforate me.
Spoiler:
That was a cool twist, but it seems a little unfair that you can't complete the mission unless you've already died and know what is going to happen in advance. If I jumped out every time a wingman said "I don't like this; we should get out of here", I'd never complete a mission! Is it possible to avoid the EMP and destroy the traitors, or is the engine knockout scripted?

Well, I jumped out on the first time.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Spoiler:
1) The Shivans in space were no issue for me because a) it was logical to engage full throttle and b) I rarely sit and wait even if there are no hostiles to fight;

2) That was an issue for me, because it was unexpected. IMO there should have been a second message warning the player...as FSW said we would rarely complete missions if we follow our wingmen's "hints".

Spoiler:
a directive and a reasonable amount of time to notice it might do the trick, I had the same issue as lots of others and found it somewhat annoying having to replay the hole mission again

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Spoiler:
In fact I stopped playing for a while after that accident. It disencouraged me a bit because the mission took a while and I paid a lot of attention on kills, trying to achieve as many cruiser, transport and freighter kills as possible...

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
You know what works well with these fsport mods? The HTL Apollo, Valkyrie and Athena models. True they are made for the FS2 era, but comparing the models to the original ones, they have way more detail.
I put these models in my fsport and they fit right in with the other Terran craft.

If you want to follow my example, this is what I did. I created a maps and models file in my data folder in the str folder, put the map textures in their folder and models in theirs after making sure the model names were correct and there you are, nice shiny new models.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
The only modification i whould made could be:

Spoiler:
1) Hades saying something... it didt say anything.

2) Someone has to say "Hey im the only one that still prefer the Athena? This Zeus looks weak and is slower."

3) The Basilisk and pods distance has to be increased... as i say before, you have virtually no-chance of killing them before they lauch hornet at the pods if they jump in front, and too little chance if they jump in sides...

Yesterday i have to repeat the mission 7 times in a row until those Basilisk apeared in the back and i could kill them all...

BTW. New version of "mistery video 2"

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
The ST:R core pack now on the FTP (the one with the Alt-J bugfix) has an additional two-second delay before the EMP burst.
Spoiler:
However, the mission is really supposed to play like it currently does; the GTI are pretty on the ball with the "sanitization" missions.  It's supposed to be through luck, or good timing, or longer-than-anticipated-time-to-charge-the-EMP-burst that you escape; after all, none of the other squadrons from the Krios escaped.  And as far as "boo hoo I wanted more warning"... well, the discussion about not hearing from Command for ten minutes was supposed to raise a red flag.

Also: thanks for uploading the videos, ShivanSpS. :)

Spoiler:
In other words, they were "sanitised" in the exact same manner as in The Last Hurrah, right (since the Krios had no fighter escort)?
