Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
The lastest FSPort has questionable support for the 3.6.12... how many times have I got to say that? You'll get much increased performance with the 3.6.14 exec.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
Okay, so I'm not having any more problems with STR, and both 3.6.12r and 3.6.14 RC3 work well. The only issue now is that the graphics are not the best. I want to be able to see the pilot (I'm kinda picky about this) in the cockpit, but the only model that has this is the Hercules. The rest of the models only have black glass covering the cockpit. I've downloaded the mediavps for STR and placed it in the fsport-mediavps directory (like you said to do).  I even put in the recommended custom flags, which just made the models shinier, and I also enabled all features under the graphics tab in the launcher . I also tried both releases to see whether it would make a difference, but there I didn't notice any. Once again, I know my computer is capable of playing FS2 with these graphics, as Blue Planet 2 looked amazing on it. Any advice?

Just for the record, here are the custom flags I put:   "-ambient_factor 35 -ogl_spec 20 -spec_exp 15 -spec_point 1.2 -spec_static 1.5 -spec_tube 1.5"

Not all of the high-poly models have visible pilots in their cockpits.

This. And please give more information. Debug log. What ships you are talking about specifically. I won't be trying to solve issues as generic as "my graphics dont' seem up to date."

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
I know that all Terran fighters and bombers have visible pilots in their cockpits because I went into the f3 tech room and hit the "no lighting" in the render options. These are the models I am looking at: Ulysses, Apollo, Valkyrie, Loki, Angel, Athena, Zeus, Medusa, Ursa, Centaur. The Vasudan models are the Anubis and Thoth.

Here is my debug log

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
Radeon card. I don't trust those with anything. See this thread. Is that what your canopies look like? My bet is this is a vid card issue. The good news is that the next release coupled with 3.6.14 or might actually solve the problem with the new -trans textures. For now, you'll just have to deal.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
Yes, That is exactly what it looks like! I didn't suspect that it was a video card issue because I was able to play other mods that had great looking models without any trouble. Thanks for your help!

By the way, when do you think the next release will be out?

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
When it's ready.

When it's been tested. Note the lack of replies in that thread.

I really wish I could help, but I don't have a working knowledge of the FSO mod structure.

I'm a bit out of the loop.
Code: [Select]
Found root pack 'C:\Games\GOG.com\Freespace 2\fsport-mediavps\FS1_Patch.vp' with a checksum of 0xd3f01eb5

Found root pack 'C:\Games\GOG.com\Freespace 2\fsport\FS1_Patch.vp' with a checksum of 0xd3f01eb5
Was FS1_Patch.vp included somewhere in the official downloads and if yes, what is its proper location? I'd guess \fsport\ but surely not all three of those folders.

FS1_Patch is the fixed Typhon. It goes in fsport-mediavps, no place else.

 
Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
I'm a bit late to the show, but let me thank you for your outstanding work. Especially the Silent Threat - Reborn campaign has been outstanding. You used gameplay-features that are not even in Freespace 2, the writing is excellent and the storytelling is engaging and exciting. The missions are considerably harder than in the original Freespace campaign, but when you win it feels deserved. :)

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
Finished the latest version a couple of days ago. Very nice work on all the new models, as always. :) The HTL Hades is just one hell of a swetie! :pimp:

But I would really be grateful if you could protect-ship the Archon in The Last Hurrah until it's vulnerable. It is quite annoying when all you wingmen sit there unleashing their ****storm of Harbingers and Tsunamis at an invulnerable vessel. :doubt:

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
You know, that's a terrific find.  The Golem and the Chimera are already protected; I'm not sure why the Archon isn't.  I'll have to change that.

On the other hand, Delta and Epsilon shouldn't be deployed until the ships are already visible to sensors.  Are you really seeing them attack the Archon before that time?

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.2]
Yes, I just checked it out again. Delta and Epsilon wings do arrive right at the beginning of the mission and are ordered to protect the Giordano.

I've never seen that happen before. Odd.

Okay, so I finally had some time to update my graphics drivers and I still have the same issue: the opaque canopies exist only when I play or look at the ships in the tech room. This time, I noticed that whenever I need to select a ship, the display in the top right shows each ship that I mentioned (see previous posts) with proper canopies. I tried to get a couple of screenshots but the game saves them as TGA files (I have no idea how to view them).

My computer runs on Windows 7 x64 with AMD Phenom II dual core processor, and ATI Radeon 4250 HD graphics

Here is my debug log

Is there anything that I can do to counter this issue, or do I just have to deal with it?
