Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
I'm not sure if it's a bug. Balance-wise, I think it's pretty required for the cruisers to be able to intercept incoming bombs or they wouldn't survive long enough. As for the Hope, last time I checked, capital ships can still fire after their weapon subsystem is down, just not as accurately.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Destroying a warship's Weapon subsystem reduces the accuracy of its turrets. It's been this way since retail.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
I know, I know but the mission writing makes it sound like these ships are crippled. No energy grid and stuff. Hell, just look how battered these vessels are!

All I am asking is, was this intended?

It's definitely intended.  The cruisers aren't derelict; they're just severely damaged.  They are still manned and can still defend themselves.  If you pay close attention, you'll notice that their turrets STOP firing after their survivors have been rescued and there is no one left on board.

In contrast, the Hope initially can't use its turrets, but after the first repair transport docks, the turrets start firing.  They keep firing until the Hope jumps out.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
I have this issue with Secrets Reborn: Not long after the huge ship (the Hades?) appears, FS2 crashes to desktop. fs2_open.log and the warnings displayed during debug run is attached.

This is on a recent (20110721) install of FS2 (fresh from GOG) with a Turey's "The Works" download (except for the Mac & Linux executables). Note the Turey post-installation note reported "There was an error while installing this section" with "1024x768 Command Briefing Animations", "Shivans" and "Twilight", so perhaps the cause for this issue is with the install (and I've no idea how to fix the Sivan and Twilight bits).

This crash happened all four times I played this (and survived) including once where the RTB order had been given and the subspace wormhole was already opening before me. Any help in resolving this will be much appreciated.

"Shivans" in this case is a two-campaign pack taking place during the events of FS1. "Twilight" in this case is not the horrible series of sparkly vampire novels, but is also a user-made campaign, though I forget the specifics of the plot. These bits can be "fixed" by downloading them from freespacemods.net, for example. But they still are just user-made campaigns and their presence or absence will not affect ST:R in any way. Unless they are present but in the completely wrong place, perhaps.

Please download a Nightly build from here. Also, make sure you are not running debug builds unless you are testing.

There are some known issues that make debug builds get angry.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
Thanks Jeff Vader for clarifying the subject of those install reports, I thought it was something vital missing (and also I tend to be anal about including all info which *may* be pertinent when reporting issues).
Please download a Nightly build from here. Also, make sure you are not running debug builds unless you are testing.
This worked! Just played Secrets Reborn with fs2_open_3_6_13r_INF_SSE2-20110730_r7388.exe and everything worked fine AFAICT (the game seemed to run a bit smoother than before, I'm guessing on account of SSE2 optimization). Thanks a bunch for helping!

PS: The debug version was only used on one run, in order to produce the previously uploaded logfile.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
For some reason I can't get ST:R to run. I have all of the files in their appropriate folder (fsport-str), start the game through the launcher, and watch as ST:R hangs after loading one bar's worth of the first mission, forcing me to close FS2 out via the task manager. This happens with both the 3.6.12 release .exe and today's nightly SSE2 build. What could be causing this?

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
Debug log please.

Though my guess is patience is the fix. The first time models are loaded, FSO needs to create a cache file which can take some time.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
7) In str16, "Blood of the Innocents", if you're playing on Very Easy, a critical game event may not work.  This should now be fixed.


In this mission, I am able to play until I'm called back to defend the science vessel. After that, the game crashes. I tried changing my difficulty level, but it still didn't work. Please help!

 Here is my debug log.

You're playing str17, "Abandon Hope".  This is a different error.

In any case, the error only seems to be a warning.  Play in a release build and it should work.

I played it in a release build at first, but it still didn't work. Oh well. I had to rely on cheats so I could go on to the next mission. It was a lot of fun though!

Anyway, I noticed that in the screenshot that there is a Shivan weapon (beam turret?) on the Hades, but on my computer, it just has a regular GTA turret. Also, my ship models don't seem to be as "pretty" as others (my herc looks the best, but other ships don't look that great). I know my computer has the capability to play FreeSpace with these graphics but it doesn't seem to be as "good looking" as the screenshots. I even downloaded the Mediavps for STR. Any help?

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
Well, "it still didn't work" isn't very specific.  What crashed in release?

The rest of your comments imply that you don't have your mod directory set up correctly, and looking back at your debug log I see that this is indeed the case.  Put mv_fsport.vp in the fsport-mediavps directory.

 
Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
Okay, I got it to work now. I'm wondering why the Herc is the only ship in which you can see the pilot, but for the other ships, there is only a shiny cockpit. Is it supposed to be like that?

You didn't answer my question.  What crashed in release?

 
Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
Sorry. When I downloaded STR first, I tried to play it on the 3.6.12 build, but it did not load, so I used the 3.6.14 RC3 build, and it worked up until the mission where you have to scan the Hades. The game crashed to the desktop in the middle of the game, so I then used a debug version so I could post a debug log.

UPDATE: Okay, so after you told me to put that file into the  fsport-mediavps directory, the game stopped crashing on str17.fs2, so thanks for the help there! The ship models are much better than before, but they still don't look the best. Any advice?

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
The 3.6.14 RC builds are pretty stable but have some weird bugs in them.  So you should stick to 3.6.12 for now.  Try posting another log.
