ok.. so I was playing bp-22 (last mission of Blue planet) and I got some problems about the red alert carry status, so I figured I was gonna check that out... in the process I found something else, some kind of weird error in the message part (written in screen).
Don't know if this has been always like this, but when you place a long message the game crashes, I made a test mission that crashes when loading the message, and the bp mission has another issue, it doesn't show the name of the ship that's sending the message.
I edited this in fred and no warning came up so I guess this might be a build problem (I think in previous version fred warned about long messages but I'm not sure).
- Tested in R 5452 AND in RC3 and both crash with this mission
- Tested same thing on bp mission here
and in the dialogue lines of the "shuttle" you'll see the name is missing, I was not able to replicate this on my own mission. (you'll need the BP files for this one.. sorry).
-Tested on Mediavps and retail (without mods) and both crashed.
