Help!

Spoiler:
Mission "Seeds of Chaos" - I lose one corvette to the unexpected beam turrets, then destroy the turrets. The second corvette doesn't fire, and I can't get the Windforce below 10%. Obviously I'm doing something wrong...
Go into the communications screen and order the carrier vigillant to attack. Or activate cheats and blow it up manually.
Urutorahappī!!

[02:42] <@Axem> spoon somethings wrong
[02:42] <@Axem> critically wrong

Yeah, this mission was a little bogus. Getting the carrier to attack is virtually the only solution to finish the Windforce.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Second time I play through the mission where you have to protect the Valor from the Storm, and on 3.6.10, it crashes, too.

Code: [Select]
Error: Can't open model file <>
File: ModelRead.cpp
Line: 1995


Call stack:
------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------

That was with the regular 3.6.10 release version. If I run the debug, I get a whole slew of error messages in my face before I can even enter the game.

Dude, I just posted about that. :blah:

Yeah uhh...the crash is random, so if you play it again, chances are it won't happen...
I don't know why.

if you take the cockpit media vp and put it in with the standard SCP media vp files, will it show the cockpits for all campaigns?

No, it doesn't work that way.
The Cockpit vp has a -shp.tbm that enables cockpit view for a specific set of ships (only the ones in this campaign). It'd probably give errors if you tried it with just the standard MVPs).

I guess third time's the charm, crashed twice and worked the third time.

Someone might wanna fix the eyepoints for the Antaeus. The view's somewhere in the model or behind the pilot model, I can't tell.

Seems like a good campaign, but a couple of things I noticed:

Spelling errors.  LOTS of spelling errors.

Spoiler:
In the mission with the Fate Leviathan, it's possible to go over the allotted time for the mission (one destroyer wins) and still get the victory.  The failed debriefing is displayed, but when you hit accept, it continues on.

Also, for whatever reason, in the mission in Earth Atmosphere when you're dealing with the AEC's Leadership, the game keeps locking up.  No idea why, debug build won't even load the mission.  And locking up to where I have to press the reset button on the computer is annoying.

All in all, not a bad campaign.  Just wish I could finish it.

Oh uh...that problem with the atmosphere mission might be a performance issue.
That mission is basically a BoE-style mission with lost of Steve-O's fighters. Try turning off normal maps, etc.

Also, one thing that bugged me:

Spoiler:
In a mission's command brief, the CO talks about how the AEC is planning to break up the ICC with no mention of capturing fighters. Yet in the following briefing, the squadron leader talks about capturing ICC fighters as if the player already had prior knowledge of the plan.

More showstopper bugs!

Spoiler:
Alright, I finally passed the mission that crashes, but now I'm at Rupture, and I cannot destroy the the whatever it's called that's guarding the space station. I get it down to 10%, with no help of the capital ships that were supposed to help me (One shoots its railgun but is out of range, the other just sits still in a corner), so I've skipped this mission.

Spoiler:
Same experience, only one of the corvettes died and the other simply stopped shooting at the destroyer. I had to cheat to finish.

You can order the carrier!
But yeah that needs to be addressed, and will be as soon as I figure out why it works on my computer.

Nitpickety: in the mod ini, "secondrylist" was spelled without the "a". I know, I know, "secondrylist" works and it'll also work for those people who are still using Launcher 4, but it still bugs me every time I see it.

Also, there was a comma before the "mediavps" part. I'm sure someone has had problems before because of that. I can even try to find the thread about it.

And yes: doing a rerelease because of these two things would be utterly stupid and I'm not even suggesting it. Just sort of a "the next time you're going to release something, keep this in mind" thing.

Here's a quick and dirty patch.
I don't expect it fixes everything. But hopefully it fixes something!

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/126554/FS2/DoS_Patch01.rar
(´・ω・`)
=============================================================

 
 :yes: Good start, fixed a few of the problems on load. 

Several of the POFs seem to have null values for their moment of inertia?

Also, was looking at the POFs and I noticed the Starlancer-esque fighters have a lot of subobjects.  Is there any reason for this that you all know of?

Managed to get through the atmospheric mission with some compatibility settings... now the one after that is hanging on a trail error.  I'll post it next time I try and play.
