Re: Some errors/warnings in a few mods
Downloaded the Fall of Epsilon Pegasi, from the released campaign list thread (which just came with a single VP, no mod.ini), and when I start the third mission, it gives a error about 11 missing weapon classes. >.<

Here's the fs2_open.log: http://pastebin.com/hjFxH6qD

Sorry if this is getting annoying. >.<

Re: Some errors/warnings in a few mods
Well, your debug log doesn't list the missing ship classes, so make sure you uploaded the correct log.  And Fall of Epsilon Pegasi isn't a mod I've worked on, so I'm not familiar with its ships.tbl.

Re: Some errors/warnings in a few mods
Tried it again and got the same debug log. Here's the error I get when I load the map.

Both it and fs2_open.log mention the not-player-allowed targeting laser. Not sure how significant that is, though...

I'm thinking I need to take up FREDing, so I can more easily find and fix errors like these myself. :P

Re: Some errors/warnings in a few mods
Huh, I played the mission in spite of the error and didn't notice anything overtly wrong. Got the same warning a few missions later, though, but still didn't notice any problems. So, might not be a serious issue.

Re: Some errors/warnings in a few mods
The mission designer somehow manage to put in the mission loadout a weapon that can't be used by player, and the debug build jumps on it. Fortunately, it's just a warning, not an error, which means that it'll simply bypass the issue not loading the weapon (hence the "... skipping" part) to enable you to continue to play without further issue. So, yes, it's nothing serious, just an oversight from the mission designer.

Actually, both missions in which this occurs are scramble missions (not sure if I'm getting the terminology right, the kind of mission where you can't pick your ship or weapons). :P

Re: Some errors/warnings in a few mods
Doesn't matter. It's still the mission designer's fault.

Re: Some errors/warnings in a few mods
Every modder should run his stuff through debug builds during development, or at the very least before release. If something like that is still in the final product, that's an oversight, whether it has an influence on the gameplay or not.
