RELEASE: 3.6.12 Release Candidate 1 (RC1)
Here it is! RC1 for the upcoming 3.6.12. Packing in a lot of history and a lot of changes since 3.6.10.

Important!!
As Post Processing is a new feature, as are the Unified Shaders, don't forget to grab FSU_and-PostProc_Shaders.7z
A .vp version of these will be available once it is determined that no changes are necessary (which will then become available for Final Release).
All .sdr files go to *\data\effects and the .tbl goes in to *\data\tables.
* can be either the mediavps\ or main FreeSpace2\ dir.
Do not enable -post_process without the shaders present.  It will crash.  A fix is in the works.

Important!!
As always, you need OpenAL installed.  Linux and OS X come with it but Windows users will need to get Creative's OpenAL installer.

Important!!
Also, since the internal code linking for TrackIR was revised, an external DLL is now required for FSO to use TrackIR functions.
The following DLL is simply unpacked in to you main FreeSpace2 root dir.
TrackIR is only supported on Windows.
TrackIR SCP DLL

Launchers, if you don't have one already:
Windows:  Launcher 5.5e (new launcher version! fixes hyphens in mod folder names issue)
OS X:  Soulstorm's OS X Launcher 3.0
Linux:  YAL or here or by hand or whatever you can figure out.

Known issues:
  • -voicer not working.  Missed a step needed for VS2008.
  • Post processing enabled without the shaders may crash.
  • Seems that there may be a stability issue.  Please run debug builds and post logs if you get crashes.

Doesn't exist on retail but also doesn't conflict or break Retail as these (nor the original "Neb01-64") actually exist, but allows for the same flexible range for the effect as non-nebula has for motion debris.

From Antipodes #5: PNG File Format support.
Adds PNG to Maps (should only be used for Nameplates), Interface, Effects, HUD (still needs HUD Rewrite to implement), Player/Squad Images, Multi Players, Multi Cache, CB Anims and Intel Anims.
LIBPNG: Version 1.2.42, current and highest usable version (MAX_VERSION), Linux can use any 1.2.2x-1.2.42, but should NOT use 1.4.0 under any platform for ANY reason (will require rewriting pngutils)
ZLIB: Version 1.2.3.

Potential Fix for Mantis 2114 as suggested by The_E and tested by myself. Not only set "static int bm_next_handle" to 0, but also conditioned the Asserts (hopefully) a bit better and cleared out commented code blocks.
(Note: It seems I got Notepad++ to convert ushort and uint into "unsigned" short and int. Doesn't break anything and frankly, I hate unnecessary typedefs anyway).

Well, this is embarrassing. Forgot to apply "is_a_word_separator" in the briefing text coloring fix for Mantis 1992. As a result, it wasn't stopping coloring unless and until a whitespace was being hit, instead of stopping on valid word separators like it should have been.

Yes. If all goes to plan, this will be the last version to feature a distinction between regular and inferno builds.

Switching over to Inferno now will break all my pilots, yes?

I'm not too concerned if it does, but I'd like to finish up a couple campaigns that I'm mostly done before getting this (and beam-pierce effects)

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.12 Release Candidate 1 (RC1)
No it wont.  Inferno pilots are stored in a separate directory from regular ones.  You won't be able to finish campaigns your in the middle of though but you can switch back and forth between inferno and standard builds.

Which just reminded me.  If you get errors trying to create a pilot with inferno create the data\players\single\inferno and data\players\mult\inferno directories manually.

Time to see beam-pierce beauty with my own eyes. Now, with 10% higher performance, or so they say.

'nother quick question: SSE and SSE2 seem to be builds that optimize some of the code for CPU bottlenecks. I'm assuming that I should go with one of them over the normal build, but which should I pick?

Depends on your processor.  Anything above a P4 should be able to handle SSE2.

Anyone else getting weird AI behaviour? Spinning in place when they're guarding ships? Also, something seems to have broken either stealth generally or "Invisible to friendlies when stealthed". Should these be mantised?

My giant battle2 in the tech room now has my cap ships reliably doing the tango amongst disco lasers.

So I guess that's a form of confirming your odd AI behavior.

If you haven't used 3.6.11 nightly builds before, AI behavior indeed has changed. AI now behaves more like it did in retail. 3.6.10 (and maybe earlier) had somewhat broken standard AI behavior. You can consult QuantumDelta for specifics.

Could you flesh this out a bit? The AI in my Massive Battle2 collide a bit (gives the impression of the jerky behaviour) but that's only because they're too close to eachother (fredding issue).
Beams also seemed fine.

If this isn't a reference to ships 'orbiting' (patrolling around) the ships they're guarding when those ships are stationary, could you please cite mission/time/ships involved examples please? I can't replicate what I assumed you meant from reading this. AI guard behaviour seems normal.

Stealth in "Proving Grounds" is fine. Got another example of it?

Re: RELEASE: 3.6.12 Release Candidate 1 (RC1)
To varying degrees, the capships bob up and down, even when they're not directly colliding. Most likely it's because they're too close to each other though. Before 3.6.11, they'd shift around a bit, but now they bob at insane Gs, which looks kind of funny, but probably doesn't occur in actual missions. I tried it again numerous times, and it was only worst during the first time I played that mission. Insane behavior only occurs like once every 5th playthru, with mild bobbing being the main oddity for the rest of the playthrus.

Problem usually resolves once all terran ships are dead though (only once did the hattie win due to very lucky beam disables), so it does seem to be ship AI not liking being stacked so close to each other.

This is/was even observable in Clash of the Titans in FS1 (Not Port, 1):P
It's been in the game since /forever/.
My massive battle2 always did this.
