lol invisbile Cains on "Forced Entry"
Like the title says, I'm playing the level "Forced Entry" and the Cains / Liliths in the mission appear to be invisible and invulnerable (as in I can't hit them at all nor see them except for their beam signatures) yet they are still quite capable of destroying everything.

I assume this isn't working as intended, so, little help?

Run a debug build and post the fs2_open.log file from \freespace2\data\. As an educated guess: corrupt MediaVPs.

Also, are you playing the original Blue Planet or the newer 3.6.10 version? "I don't know" means the original.

I'm playing from the one that's stickied on the top of this forum. Rumor has it that anything Turey's installer gives you will destroy your computer. Or at least, not work.

Well, there are two stickies: "BP 3.6.10" and "Release - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius".

Is mostly limited to the MediaVPs.

The 3.6.10 sticky.

Also, I'd love to run a debug build, but whenever I try to load it, it crashes because textures are missing. Gives me something like this.

Warning: Couldn't open texture 'Akheton_Bitmap'
referenced by weapon 'Huge Railgun'

File:J:\src\cvs\fs2_open_3_6_9.final\code\Weapon\Weapons.cpp
Line: 2145
[This filename points to the location of a file on the computer that built this executable]

Call stack:

    parse_weaponstbl()    parse_modular_table()    weapon_init()    game_init()    game_main()    WinMain()    WinMainCRTStartup()    kernel32.dll 7c817067()
------------------------------------------------------------------

This might also be why my cains are invisible.

Seriously, I just installed Freespace 2. I don't understand why anything would go missing.

Re: lol invisbile Cains on "Forced Entry"
Templar, do you have any extra VP files in your Blue Planet folder apart from the ones you downloaded from blueplanet.hard-light.net? You should only have blueplanet1.vp in there, along with the usual mod.ini file and maybe credits.txt.

Re: lol invisbile Cains on "Forced Entry"
That's a strange error, the VP should already have Akheton_bitmap and the Cain/Lilith textures included. Unless I've been bad and not updated the VP with the textures in them...  :o

Are you running FSO with the mediavps Setekh? There should be references to those textures in those files.

Blueplanet1.vp  That's it. Like I said, I just installed all of Freespace including FSO (installed from Turey's thing, but the BP VP d/l'd separately) yesterday.

That's a strange error, the VP should already have Akheton_bitmap and the Cain/Lilith textures included. Unless I've been bad and not updated the VP with the textures in them...  :o

I'm not sure what you mean by running it with the mediavps. I have your campaign vp in the correct folder. Otherwise, I haven't touched anything since installing.

nevermind. Apparently I don't know how to use new technology. I just found this thread (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,58230.0.html) so I'll install that and see how it works.

Are you running FSO with the mediavps Setekh?

He's not Setekh, Darius. That's just a Custom Title.

You had to be there.

Re: lol invisbile Cains on "Forced Entry"
Sweet, got it working, looks beautiful.

PS: do you think you could make this mission more difficult? It's too easy right now. Especially with the Ugly Orion getting insta-gibbed by the Lilith when they warp in.  :yes:

You're kidding me, right? Most of us are saying that Forced Entry and Keepers of Hell are extremely difficult.

Re: lol invisbile Cains on "Forced Entry"
Yeah, it's pretty cool. I'll say without arrogance that I'm by no means bad at this game. I'm playing on Medium, and yet the only way I've been able to get as close to finishing it as I have (while still failing - GG Lilith overpowered beam cannon) is because I've played it so many times I know exactly what  happens where.

I'm not sure what robot you had play test this mission, but I am in sincere doubt that he has a soul.

The Freespace version of Deep Blue. He had me going for a while a couple days ago, but he just wasn't up to me. But he'll work for this.  :pimp:

Medium is pretty good. I'm forever on Very Easy and I still mess up Forced Entry or Keepers of Hell once in a while.

This is tight. I finally kill the Lilith, cruise along the new Stratcomm Destroyer as it jumps in, die from shivan bomb shockwaves 600 meters off the bow. Siiick.

Oh woooow. The Ravanna behind the Stratcomm ship is class. I hate to be a dick, but my interest in the campaign is waning.
