Re: RELEASE: 次元のエクリプス - Dimensional Eclipse
Say, can I have the solutions to the test? I can answer the physics and FS2 questions just fine, but the last two ('favorite -dere' and 'ideal number of dimensions') are tricky.

Say no. And shoot it.

Turns out molybdenum armor is extremely resistant to wishes. Isn't that awesome?

Re: RELEASE: 次元のエクリプス - Dimensional Eclipse
How exactly are you supposed to beat Stronghold? As far as I can tell, that mission is impossible.

EDIT:
Spoiler:
Also, in the second mission, the answer to the first question (What is 2 x 2?) is 2. Shouldn't it be 4?

Re: RELEASE: 次元のエクリプス - Dimensional Eclipse
Umm, FYI, when using latest compiled nightly (not sure which one that is, but the one used on 4/27/2012 ~7 PM EST), when you hit the escape button during a mission, the quit query takes a while to come up, and when it does, the game doesn't know where everything is -- it snaps back and forth between two positions.

e.g., I had an enemy fighter targetted, and it shows a speed of 348+ in both positions, and I am at a speed of about 180 (can't tell cause the quit window is in the way; however, that's about what it was when I hit "no" to check) -- the distance to the enemy fighter fluctuated between 622+ in one frame and 625+ in the next, back and forth.

Also, exiting took longer than normal.

Not sure if this is cause for concern, or if it's even related to this mod (perhaps this belongs in SCP board?)  Anyways, I'm going to try clearing my cache, who knows, maybe that's it.  :ick:  I dunno.

This is a characteristic of the build, not the mod.

Don't rush in, let your wingmen draw fire while you take out the beams immediately facing you on the sensor station. Kill the Ions. Hide and let friendly flak take care of the missile-spamming Tornadoes. Be really, really, really careful to stay precisely in front of the cruiser where its point defenses can't get you. Don't bother with the other sensor stations, you don't have time. Consider the Yari patch posted by andrew a few pages back.

Stupidly difficult, but not impossible.

As far as I'm aware 4 is the correct answer. I mean, I aced the test with 4.

Spoiler:
2x2 is clearly 2.
Oops. Fixed. Gonna put out a patch for AW_Core.vp that should address a bunch of difficulty issues and fix some "oops" moments like this one.



EDIT: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/126554/FS2/DE_Patch1_1.rar
Okay this has the Yari thing, also ended up disabling most of the turrets on the Belphegor, the approach shouldn't be as important even if you don't bring Yaris for M10A (Stronghold).
All turrets on the Amaterasu are disabled in the stealth mission, should make escaping...a bit more possible. The fighters will still be on you though and they don't really like obeying the STOP FOLLOWING ME orders...
Corrected the correct answer to the first question of the quiz mission (that was a derp).

Spoiler:
You only need to answer 8 of the 10 questions correctly to ace the test.

Also, thanks for the patch. Stronghold (and maybe the stealth mission) is simply unfair without it.

You've never even seen the earlier incarnations of the missions in DE...and no, this is not the time to say anything, Droid and Andrew!

I play on Normal (Hotshot). Are we supposed to play on a lower difficulty?

No, play it on any level you like. I completed the whole campaign on both routes on Hotshot. I do know that Destiny completed all this on Insane too. <_<

For some reason, when Psi 1 is destroyed in Cornered Beasts, my framerate goes down to 10 fps and stays there for the rest of the mission. Does anyone else get this problem?

Yeah I looked around and saw nothing unusual with the model.
