Re: RELEASE: 次元のエクリプス - Dimensional Eclipse
Mmmmh yeah, ok, I got a similar bug on another mission a while back... From what I gathered it had something to do with Hyperspace and floating point math, which Debug is more careful with (?) and thus doesn't crash in...
Or something.

Consequently I've never managed to hunt it down and it disappeared (for me at least) after that hyperspace update so I thought it got fixed...but now its back? :hopping:

Re: RELEASE: 次元のエクリプス - Dimensional Eclipse
So, it can occur when ships warp in?  Or perhaps shortly thereafter?  EDIT: BTW, tried normal build again, and you're right, the patch doesn't fix the crashing.

Wow. I don't know how I've been able to play freespace without glide. It is so liberating!

So far, barely into the game, but like it quite a bit already. How do you go about getting 100% on the test? It'd be nice to have the answers listed out or something.

Re: RELEASE: 次元のエクリプス - Dimensional Eclipse
I couldn't figure out how to associate the blocks I was blowing up with the answers, so I just shot random ones.  :D
Target them and look at their name.

Because it refers to an eclipse of the dimensional variety, not a solar or lunar. Plus, it is a thing to put ENGLISH in titles, you know that! :P (so yes I guess it is for the looks)
Also, the terminal e is silent, thus I write as as I would write 'eclips', thus the "su" ス. Using "se" セ, would be right if it was pronounced "eclipseh". I certainly don't pronounce it that way.  :confused: do you?
Rikaichan agrees with me!
I usually pronounce it "Sonnenfinsterniss", though that doesn't exactly fit the context :p

Ah, that explains it.  I didn't bother targetting them as they were really easy to hit.  :lol:

@Dekker: Ashen Wings contains Dimensional Eclipse.  You didn't waste it.  Oh, and perhaps you may want to make a small investment and get PDANet for your mobile device.  ;)

The project is and always has been Dimensional Eclipse. Droid just had the bad luck to suffer one of Andrew's ****tier ideas. You don't need to redownload it or delete it because it's a joke mod or remove it from the campaign list.

Although I was quite confused at the beginning, this is real fun to play.
So...is there another stuff like that or do I have to play WoD?^^

That's it,. I'm just too dumb...I'm flying around in the trench, I can blast the reactors...but I'm unable to actually locate the generators like I have to...so what?^^
Oh my god...never mind...I should've read that briefing...and not just started to pound the fleet into dust^^

Edit: Well, no ending sequence or debriefing or something like that?

Re: RELEASE: 次元のエクリプス - Dimensional Eclipse
One thing that bothered me so far is, that the mainhall music (at least up to chapter 2, I havn't gotten any further yet) is so much louder than the briefing and in-mission music.

They come from some abandoned projects I did that never got very far.

Erm yeah... sorry about that.  :ick:

I didn't do the best job normalizing the sound effects/music.
In fact, I may have forgotten to do it at all.

For me this happens with every music played in the mainhall, briefing or in-mission. I'm not exactly sure why but if I go into the options and change the music volume it suddenly gets much quieter (even if I set it back to what it was before) for the remaining mission. Going to the next mission and it's loud again. The effects volume is loud in the beginning and usually gets quiet after starting the mission.

Re: RELEASE: 次元のエクリプス - Dimensional Eclipse
Well, I'm enjoying this a lot. Only problem I've found is the crashing in mission 5. It happens at random points, sometimes before the carrier arrive, sometimes after.
No error, no warning, no nothing. Only a 'stopped responding' and an unnerving one second loop of whatever sound was playing during the crash.

I jumped the mission with ctrl+shift+s in the Tech Room (which I don't advice, as things... lost sense), and it happens again when
Spoiler:
controlling the captured cruiser, during the fight with the Tranquil WC

Other that that, is there any relation with the girls and their respective VNs?

Re: RELEASE: 次元のエクリプス - Dimensional Eclipse
Ungh, that crashing error.  :mad:
It appears to be happening on missions where there is a lot going on...and only to some people (?)
...and it doesn't happen in debug.

Wonderful...gotta try and get it sorted out.



And no, there's not much relation with their respective VNs at all.

I get weird shield management behavior. When I hit up arrow, it boosts forward shields, but down, left, right boost the wrong shield quadrants. Any idea why?

Re: RELEASE: 次元のエクリプス - Dimensional Eclipse
I think that might be a graphical glitch with "generate icon". Because I didn't touch that.

Weird. Come to think of it, I think it happened to me in WoD as well, but I didn't think much of it since I just rebound all my arrow keys. to the proper quadrants. It'd be nice to know if anyone else had the problem tho.

Anyways,

I talked with Droid and decided to clean up the HUD a bit for widscreen users. 16:9 only for now. Let me know if you want 16:10 or triple head configs or if there are any problems with this configuration. Also let me know if you prefer larger sized HUD elements (like in this table) or smaller elements that don't fill up the screen as much. It's fairly trivial for me to customize those settings.

Put it in a text file, rename to fsq-hdg.tbm and put it into the 'freespace\Ashenwings\data\tables' folder. Make the folder yourself, since it probably doesn't exist.

Droid said that M12 and M14 are the ones to test to see if HUD gauges work properly, and those were the ones I tried. Weapon names in primaries often go off the screen, but that's just because the names are too long. This behavior is the same as the provided table with the mod vp.

Screenshot attached for new HUD. Hopefully it's not considered spoilers.
