Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
none of what you suggested did much with the karnak when i started up freespace
BUT, there was this option under video called antialiasing or something and next to it it said "D3DMULTISAMPLE_NONE"
in the drop-down menu it also had "D3DMULTISAMPLE_2_SAMPLES"
my dad was in the room and I asked him what the heck it was and he just said to try the 2 sample thing
Tried freespace again
the Karnak appeared, completely whole!
idk what antaliasing is but selecting the 2 sample option somehow fixed the karnak :/
anyways, thx for the help

EDIT: nvm, it seemed the above had nothing to do with it
i think it had something to do with the vp file in the fsport_mediavp folder
i deleted the files inside believing the installer would reinstall them
it didnt and i have no idea where i got those files then :/
after they were deleted, several ship shapes changed, reverting the apollo and valkarie and such into their original fs1 shapes
the karnak seemed to do the same as it no longer has any lights
where do i get these mediavps for the fsport? I couldn't find any files to go in a "fsport_mediavp" folder on the fsport site

Direct3D sucks bollocks in FSO, but that shouldn't matter with 3.6.10 builds since they select OpenGL regardless of what you've set in the Launcher.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
thx
one last thing
i tried freespace with fsport_mediavps as the mod and the karnak appeared
but, when i put fsport_str as the mod, freespace would not use the mediavp models (the shiny ones with lights and detailed cockpits)
those models showed up before i reinstalled all the vps
how do i get the models to reappear?

Open the mod.ini in your \fsport-str\ folder and make sure that is says
Code: [Select]
[multimod]
primarylist = fsport-mediavps;
secondarylist = fsport,mediavps;

Also make sure that
- your FSPort MediaVPs folder is called fsport-mediavps
- your FSPort folder is called fsport
- your MediaVPs folder is called mediavps .

Open the mod.ini in your \fsport_str\ folder and make sure that is says
Code: [Select]
[multimod]
primarylist = fsport_mediavps;
secondarylist = fsport,mediavps;

Also make sure that
- your FSPort MediaVPs folder is called fsport_mediavps
- your FSPort folder is called fsport
- your MediaVPs folder is called mediavps .

This is what I have and Lambda1 still doesn't dock in mission 6. The thing just sat there for 5 minutes until I let it get destroyed.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
What does your fs2_open.log have to say about the subject?

Okay I ran the debugger and attached it.

Situation:
As far as I know I've got all the latest files. Running the .10 build, and downloaded all of the fsport, mediavps10, fsport_str files yesterday. Pretty sure anyway, I did do a system restore last night so I think my computer moved those files around since I just installed it. but I think I got them back where they're supposed to be.

Anyway. If I run just fsopen .10 the lambda transports don't do anything. They warp in, and sit there with no orders.

As for the debugger. Both times I've run the debugger, FS2open crashes when Lambda1 enters the field. Or at least the last thing I just heard was opening message from lambda 1 over the comms before it CTD.

Hmmn, oh wait my FSport directory still has the 3_0_4.vp as well as teh new 3_1_1 vp. Not sure if that would screw it up or not. Originally I deleted the 0_4 but the restore must've put it back or something. Maybe some of the old port files are messing up the new ones, so will re-install that directory me thinks.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Code: [Select]
 -mod mediavps,fsport_mediavps,fsport_str,fsport,mediavpsYou're somehow doing it wrong. The mod order should be fsport-mediavps,fsport-str,fsport,mediavps. Something makes the game engine use \mediavps\ first (and again as the last folder).

Code: [Select]
Searching root pack 'C:\Games\FS_Open\fsport\fsport-glow.vp' ... 6 files
Searching root pack 'C:\Games\FS_Open\fsport\fsport-shine.vp' ... 165 files
Searching root pack 'C:\Games\FS_Open\fsport\fsport3_0_4.vp' ... 645 files
These three are old FSPort files. You don't need them (apparently you spotted 3_0_4 already).

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Delete every file from FSPort unless it's in the release thread. Why are the MVPs listed twice?

Oh shoot. I had -mod mediavps in the customs flag box.
Okay. I nuked the fsport directory and extracted again. Will give 'er another go.

 
Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Ok it works now thanks. Obviously my system restore and the leftover custom flag was mucking things up. Yay

 
Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Ok I finished this bad boy. Overall a vast improvement from the original.

Thoughts
-I thought some of the Vasudan speech was a little too verbose. Especially for in-combat dialogue.
-On voice work, while it was all well done, I thought some of it was a bit slow. Like the reader was making sure they annunciated. Which is cool, but I got impatient a few times. Especially when some of the debriefings were LOTS of text. Too much sometimes in my opinion.



Anyway.

Here's a campaign idea. There's Neo-Terran Victorious what about GTI Victorious? What would the GTA be if the Hades rebellion had succeeded??  Maybe this has already been discussed. Don't feel like reading 15 pages worth or whatever it is.

There were a lot of old FS1-era campaigns based on that premise back in the day. None of them ever saw the light of day though...

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
I thought I might've asked this before, but couldn't find any search results. I've always managed to find a way around this but I can't seem to remember how to replicate the process and am stuck on this, even though the ST:R mod.ini lists the FSPort and MediaVPs, I'm stuck with retail versions of the Apollo, Valkyrie, Amazon Advanced, Chronos, Faustus, etc. But when selecting the FSPort itself with the MediaVPs as the mod, I get all those HTL models, and the mod.ini is the exact same.
This is all with a very fresh install using hip63's installer from last week or so, so all the files should be up-to-date; Port's at 3.1, MediaVPs is 3.6.10, using 3.6.10 Final.

So you're missing the primarylist line.

(And yes, you should be using dashes in your FSPort mod folders.  Now that launcher 5.5e is out, there's no longer any excuse. ;))
