Re: BETA/RELEASE: Bringing the maximum out of the game
Individual mission files with no required table changes whatsoever can sit in data/missions just fine, but that's about it.

Thanks for reporting, will work on another download location. Seems the ones i used are temporaly. I'd use FileFront but it lags like hell to me for a year or two now. I'll have another download link up in a bit.

EDIT: Download links are now fixed. Check the original post for the links!

In Hellgate, a large portion of the capital ships don't move and are out of range of each other.  I discovered (after beating a Ravana to death by myself with Trebuchets and a Maxim cannon) that Alpha 1 has command authority over the cruisers and corvettes, so I brought them in to attack the Sathanas, but there were still two Hatshepsut destroyers ten kilometers away that wouldn't move to engage, and the Shivans weren't in any hurry to attack either.

Re: BETA/RELEASE: Bringing the maximum out of the game
Forgive my noobness but how do i install this mission?

I downloaded it, got a MassBattle2G_BPLite_V8.fs2 file and I placed it in C:\games\freespace2\data\missions  but it doesnt show up when i goto Missions in the game. It only lists the main freespace 2 campaign.

I have fs2_open_3_6_10

Select 'single missions' instead of 'campaign missions'.

Re: BETA/RELEASE: Bringing the maximum out of the game
IIRC, it's an oversight of whoever did the mission, and it doesn't prevent the mission to play properly.

Re: BETA/RELEASE: Bringing the maximum out of the game
When I made the mission I was in a very experimental stage of FREDing, so there were some oversights that can be found. The weapon error should not be any problem, probably a little table entry that I typed wrong.

Hope you'll enjoy the mission, there's quite a few things you can create in FS2 with some imagination and creativity. Were I to remake the mission today it would be a lot more diverse and deep story-line and gameplay-wise - which generally is a good sign for a person to see that he or she is improving.

Put them in Freespace2/data/missions.
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> WUT
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> hahahahaha

Which is the post right above yours.

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

Thank you very much. Feel a bit silly. :doubt:

Whoaa, it's total mayhem and chaos. I like it. Thanks for sharing this. ;)

One thing though, when i load it with the mod Media vps 3.6.12, i get the well known
Warning message:
" freespace can't find 15 shipclasses...
.... try to play a mission that is incompatible with the current mod."

Re: BETA/RELEASE: Bringing the maximum out of the game
As said on the release post :
Both files are Blue Planet dependant.
So you need to load them with at least AoA.
