Re: RELEASE - Crossing the Styx
Spoiler:

you got the same issue as the STR last version, you are able to jump to the next mission completely dissabled, how I regret staying still while those GTVA fighters aimed at me now

nice concept, I like the "giving the player a choice" ..I myself wanted to try something like that in some missions but I never found a good thing for the player to choose so far :P

also the continuous amount of enemy fighter I had to destroy made me almost go crazy, but I know it's the only way to keep the player on the game for that amount of time.

overall  :yes:

Re: RELEASE - Crossing the Styx
Tomo: Yes, you can pass it that way.

Thanks for the mirror, Swantz :)

Rodo, you're right, I should have thought of that.

General remark: if you liked the third mission, you may want to last till the ninth, or take a look at it via the tech room (it's called CtS_10).

Then you're doing it wrong. Works fine on my end.

Didn't play it yet but I have one thing to say as feedback: The mod.ini says "secondrylist = ,mediavps;". Even though both forms work, it would be better conduct to have it say "secondarylist" instead of "secondrylist". Also, the comma before the "mediavps" is unnecessary, and might even cause problems to some users.

Re: RELEASE - Crossing the Styx
Well, both the mis-spelling "secondrylist" and the comma are necessary for it to work on older versions of FSO (ie. 3.6.9), IIRC.
Those were only recently fixed.

According to the wiki article about mod installation, it was an issue with Launchers older than 5.4.

Re: RELEASE - Crossing the Styx
Ok then, people with older launchers.
Regardless, there is little to no harm using the older form, but people still using the older launcher will experience problems using the 'fixed' form.

Re: RELEASE - Crossing the Styx
I think we're well past anyone using Launcher 5.4 with new campaigns.  There's no reason to not have the latest launcher if you're getting other new stuff from HLP.  It's still completely backwards compatible with any SCP release or retail FS2.

Re: RELEASE - Crossing the Styx
Yes. If a person is using Launcher 5.3 and wants to play Crossing the Styx, he'll/she'll have to update. CTS requires the 3.6.10 MediaVPs -> CTS requires a (recent enough) 3.6.10 build, and I've understood that really old Launchers won't necessarily get along with new builds.

Keeping the old and, in a way, wrong format in mod.inis is sort of like making sure the cavemen have enough wooden clubs; I mean, OK, it can be done but what's the point?

Re: RELEASE - Crossing the Styx
As I attempted to explain before, it is not good conduct. Sure, it might work but (especially) the comma thing was a MacGyver-chewing-gum fix to begin with, because of poor functionality in the old Launchers. If there is a good way to do something and a bad way to do something, and both will end up in a working situation, why settle with the bad way?

Because it was already done the bad way and would be redundant to do it again?
Yeah, next time do it the good way but don't bother with changing it now...

Dammit, I wanted ten new posts of people discussing the merits of the campaign, not wanking about whether or not an .ini file is spelling things right. :p

I'm definitely getting immersed, but the first mission. . . . I didn't realise it was training til afterwards. Apart from that, I like it :)

It _did_ mention it in the briefing, as well as there being a big "Skip Training" button.
