Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn: Stranded
Played through this just now. Well done, Spoon, well done. :)

Spoiler:
I will have to practice WoD, though. My choice ended up being for practical reasons more than everything else as I kept getting killed either way (my choice of weapons probably didn't help), which I'm not happy about since I would have tried to do Silver's path otherwise. But it did make me feel sad regardless, so well done with that. :( I will have to try for the best ending another day.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn: Stranded
This is a really good minicampaign, Spoon. I love the FREDding and fluff you put into this.

I got Ending #3.


Man, clearing this on Insane was quite...a challenge :P




Also, don't we all love transpace transspace?

Engine bug. Happens when uh...you change-weapon into something with ammo IIRC.
Is it documented anywhere? Because I was running 3.6.14, and I didn't see it in Mantis.

I added the three new characters and a bit of information about Liuzqo to the wiki. As always another pair of eyes (or more) for proofreading would be good.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn: Stranded
Thanks for the positive comments, people!

The area occupied by a normal-sized head .ani was significantly brighter and could be seen much more easily as well as having clearly defined green borders, whereas the rest was darker, and actually invisible in your Quasi-Space equivalent (or with Lizuqo's .ani only barely visible against normal space backgrounds).

From your description it sounds like the headani background isn't properly defined (in the hud table) for the resolution you are playing on. Can you tell me what resolution you are playing on or/and get a screenshot of the problem? It's probably a super easy fix if it is what I think it is.

Also, Transspace is not Quasi-Space.
Spoiler:
Because there actually is one more dimension beyond Transspace that is called Quasi-Space

It probably isn't, I did run into this bug when I was play testing but then I... uh sort of forgot about it again  :nervous:

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn: Stranded
I've encountered the ammo gauge bug. I think it's high time the thing got an overhaul, it just looks out of place in it's current form, and isn't nearly as readable as it should be.
In other news, I've got the golden ending. On Medium, because it turns out that switching flight models too frequently (what with testing BP, WoD and playing Diaspora...) somewhat dampens my flying skills (plus I'm too lazy to replay each of those missions 50 times again :)).
Spoiler:
Pretty much the only complaint is that I couldn't choose which Cyrvan missile will be mounted on my fighter. It turns out that your own Malachyye swarms are actually more of a threat than Zy ace and his wingman. While this does balance this seemingly overpowered missile, it doesn't suit my flying style too well. I'd trade the thing for a Dragonslave any day (or even better, some similar Cyrvan MRM).

I...actually can't get a screenshot, because apparently I fixed it accidentally while tinkering with my settings. I think. We'll see if it comes back.

I hate you Spoon, there goes my Halloween.

On the bright side, I'm going to enjoy the beam spam and missile trails.

I loved it, Spoon.  Well done.   :yes:

I accidentally played on very easy and got the best ending.   :blah:  It was still a lot of fun though.  :D

 
Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn: Stranded
That was probably the best way to end off a week full of midterms. Many thanks to Spoon. :D

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn: Stranded
Just had to release it while Dekker's rig is out of commision didn't you? DIDN'T YOU! This is my punishment for the AaCM thread, right? I thought we were cool after I gave you that Samuel Elf Jackson idea... :(
If you hit it and it bleeds, you can kill it. If you hit it and it doesn't bleed...You are obviously not hitting hard enough.

Don't cheat. Nobody really accounts for using cheats when testing.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn: Stranded
It is impossible to account for all possible cheats, however.
Cheats are a dev/testing tool.

Mr. Cuddles doesn't count since there's roughly a 70% chance that rotational velocidensity and the alignment of the stars will break that mission without cheats anyway.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn: Stranded
I actually had to use cheats to beat delenda est because the mission was bugged for me (probably due to the checkpoint system) and impossible to complete without. So yeah that isn't the best example  :p
Anyway that's enough offtopicness. Cheats break campaigns, news at eleven.

  :drevil: Such unforunate timing

Well its not a long campaign, so your halloween will remain mostly intact
Stranded actually has a pretty low amount of beam spam, it might not be worthy of the WoD name :p

I'm not ignoring it, Spoon! I'm going to play it!
I hope so!

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn: Stranded
I was just saying that if you were talking about switching from one weapon to another mid-mission, then either it's an event in-mission or you are using cheats to do it, and said the cheats have some bugs.
