Wow! Great job!

Files downloaded, but where should I put them to get it in game?

Put the .ani and .pcx files in your fsport/data/interface folder, and the .tbl goes in fsport/data/tables.

Oh, can't 16:10[16:9] be done via scripting?
Oh guys, use that [ url ][ img ][ /img ][ /url ] :/

Oh, you can do lots of things via scripting, including that.

What you can't do is play animations like the mainhall does. Or use the soundscape used in the mainhall.

Let there be stars and let there be you

I'm guessing all the marines are in the canteen drinking their asses off?  :nervous:

Also, yay for DOF on the barrels! I thought you said you weren't going to do them.

Sooooo... I don't suppose you could fake a 16:9 mainhall for us by squishing it down to 4:3 so it gets re-stretched out?

I could, but I don't feel like doing all the re rendering quite yet.

It'd be better to wait until we have something that doesn't resemble a ghost ship first XD

Do you think that the 16:9, 16:10 mainhalls (which should be different, please), will be vert- or hor+? vert- is a lot easier, but I think you lose out on some anis and interface elements. Maybe a bit of both?

A compromise I'd settle with is letterboxing, but if you can do better, please do.

Before this goes too far, I need to say this. It takes me 24 hours at least (depending on which one) to render all the elements for a main hall. And that still requires me to manage it every 3-4 hours. There are tons of ratios that *should* get separate renders... I'm just not going to spend all that time for every ratio. Chances are that you'll get 4:3 and 16:9 (the standards). From there you can easily crop the files to set up the other ratios.

In that case, you should probably wait until the final (when you have your people set up.)

Soyakaze mainhall has been tabled and masked!



And yes, Mike and I do know about the color changing between .ani's and the background. Will be fixed.

Here's the Bastion Beta files.

http://www.mediafire.com/file/wanzwlk23888zkm/BastionBeta.zip

Drop that in your fsport_mediavps and select "Bastion Test" as your campaign.

Those are the ANIs for filesize's sake and they still have some issues... the EFFs have no seams at all and look fantastic. The EFFs will be released at a later date.
