RC2. This ain't Star Wars.

Well SORRY for not being a stickler for proper acronyms.  :lol:
It's just that communication is much easier when people use the same terms about things. In the same manner it might very well be confusing if I were to refer to FreeSpace 2 with the acronym F2.

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

Plus, things like R2, etc will mean Release 2, which is an update after something has been finalized (ie Windows Server 2003 R2).  That can get very confusing with a Release Candidate, which is released before finalization of the first release, and is not planned to be an official release, but the quality is usually getting very close.  In our case though, I've never made release candidates so I've been working out the kinks in the process as they're released.  Hopefully we'll just have an RC3 and then a final this time.  We will likely never use a R2, R3 etc system but it's still confusing when they get mixed up.  Hopefully RC2 fixes the issues for this user anyway.

While I'm playing through the tutorial, the playing field is suddenly wiped clean randomly and I'm not able to continue the mission. Is there anything I'm doing wrong here?
How long was the playing field blank for? It's meant to do that, but a new scenario is supposed to appear a few seconds later.

 
Update: I got it to work... it's an interesting plot line, but it was kind of difficult for me to get used to. Ah well, it was really good though! Very original.

It blanked out unpredictably during the events of the simulation, so I could never find my way through it without the screen blanking out. I ran the debug build, and I'll post up the code if need be.

Very strange. I have an idea what might be causing it, but which part of the tutorial has it blanked out at? And how long have you waited after it does before quitting the mission?

Spoiler:
In the stealth fighter mission (2 or 3? Don't remember) I can't order Alpha wing to proceed to the unknown signal buoy. They just ignore that order but do everything else I tell them to do. Plus I can never seem to get to all the waypoints anyway.

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

One time, it happened right when I went to order Beta wing to supplement Alpha wing's defense of the transport, then it blanked out another time as I was trying to tell the cruiser to fire at one of the enemy ships. I don't really know when or why exactly it happens, but it's making getting through the tutorial an impossibility.

Have you tried using time compression after the playing field's wiped? I'm trying to figure out if it's something just triggering early or another problem entirely.

The protect order is grayed out. You have to use the 'destroy my target' order to investigate the unknown signal due to the way Freespace deals with IFF.

 
I played this and it was an exciting and unique experience.  The last mission was incredible.  My one complaint was that on the last mission, I ordered my bombers to attack but when they arrived on the other side, they did nothing.  Meanwhile enemy bombers unloaded on my installation, eventually destroying it.I was kindof upset about losing because my bombers did nothing.  However, overall still and excellent mission.

BTW, congratulations of the immense popularity this has already received.  I have already seen this on several "play these campaigns" lists.

Yeah, bombers were problematic in that mission. They're not supposed to be able to attack the installations at all - since there's no reliable counter to them I felt it unbalanced the gameplay too much.

But Freespace has other plans, I guess. I'll look into it. Good to hear you enjoyed it regardless.

I definitely agree with the balance issue.  Part of the problem was they just wouldn't die so I could get reinforcements at my base.
What happens if you win the mission?
Spoiler:
Does it just not have you switch sides at the end?  And the transport scene still occurs?
