Which one to download?!!
Hi, I've looked at the wiki, and it just confused the hell outta me. Quoting the wiki. http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/Inferno

INFR1:
Main campaign: 14

INFA:
Main campaign: 20

INFASA:
Main campaign: 30+
TeOO: *classified*
THoD: *classified*

INFA2:
Main campaign: 30+

INF SCP:
Chapter One: 30+
Chapter Two: 20+

So. Which one/s should I be downloading now? Infa 2 is dead, inf SCP is WIP, INFASA is WIP too (ok, not good, things are just gona get messy) INFR1 and Inferno Alliance. So, is inferno alliance the latest version or should I play INFR1 first?

This is Inferno: you have an obligation to be confused.
Inferno SCP = Super Confusing Project
INFR1 is a pile of missions where bigass ships pwn smaller ships and are  in turn pwned by biggerass ships which in turn are pwned by evenbiggerass ships etc etc etc.

Inferno Alliance might have had an actual plot. I haven't played it, since I was scared away by it being delivered as an .exe (yes, so was INFR1, but I saw Alliance first, then later decided to try INFR1, then went to look Alliance, but some download links were dead and the rest were mighty slow).

INFR1 came before INFA in release, but in plot INFA is Post-Lucifer through the eyes of the GTA Sol fleet and INFR1 is way Post-Capella.

INFR1 is part of a defunct continuity...

INFA is also part of a defunct continuity.


All things considered, INFR1 is probably more worth playing.

For what it is it's not bad, I'd like to see the later campaigns finished if not just for the new Claymore models.

Hey. For it's time Inferno Release 1 was revolutionary. It was the flagship mod of its day, until people decided to focus more on storyline than the big ships blowing each other up.

Kind of sick of all these people bashing Inferno. Is it somehow more socially acceptable to bash Inferno than other mods?

Re: Which one to download?!!
Yeah, it is. But INFR1 had some good stuff going for it. INFA was a bit dull, but perfectly solid work. INFASA looks like it could be a lot of fun. Although what I saw of Mobius' background material was a bit turgid, he's put a lot of work into it and he can certainly FRED.

You mean like the last one which was the Gigas's beam broadside posted on December 21, 2008? :P

Oh the nine-year old ones.
Which I'd wager is the reason why it's bashed more than other mods.

I'll do it if it gives Inferno a little more attention. ;7

Then bring it out of hiatus and work on the real deals and release them.

Re: Which one to download?!!
I kind of feel like Inferno R1 is worth playing just for the final massive set-piece mission, "Nemesis."  (Think that's the name, anyway.)  It's a fantastic example of how a Battle-of-Endor mission can be pulled off properly, and it was a lot of fun to play through.  I remember there was at least one in-mission soundtrack that was particularly awesome, too.  For its day, Inferno had a massive number and variety of custom ships (though not all of them have aged particularly well), and it did serve as somewhat of a flagship project for the community for some time.

Re: Which one to download?!!
The music track used on Nemesis and the track used on three missions (First is used claming the Sol Gate, second is used on the first Shivan re-encounter, and third is used on the 14th (Final) mission, Gigas) were pretty good.

Re: Which one to download?!!
Yeah, the latter one is what I was thinking of.  It fit really well with that first Shivan encounter.
