Hah, that was last decade. :p

Would be kinda neat to have though, too bad nobody's maintaining it.

Re: [RELEASE] Shadow Genesis: 2020 Edition
Great news :-)

Can I ask a small favour please? Could you tell me the name of the AI profile for S.G please? I need it for my auto-aim table.

It is called SG.

Mh what is the thing with the auto-aim table? I mean, to shoot more precise on bigger distances this mod uses the Zoom Script after all.

are there any other keys bound to specific events I should know about so I know not to re-bined them too ;-)

As far as i know:
ALT-D & D for the Zoom Script
K and X during the course of missions.

Also some time the multiplayer message keys 1 through 4 are needed as well.

I need the auto-aim due to using a Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X.

The HOTAS makes the games more immersive and allows for faster and tighter turning than using a mouse - essential for Bem Cavalgar, but since it is an 'el cheapo' stick it has a bit of a deadzone problem. This makes precise aiming difficult. I tried using Joystick curves and setting the deadzone in FS to its minimum etc. but they didn't help much.

So I figured 'Just do what console FPS games do to overcome how $h1tty joypads are for precise aiming - aim assist'. So far it appears to be working great, and I'm looking forward to trying out campaigns on Insane  :cool:

Re the Zoom in SG. As far as I can tell it is independent of what weapon you are using - unless I just happened to have the right weapon/s equipped when using it.

Thanks for the heads up re the keybindings. It was the K which did it, I had that bound to targeting subsystem in reticle. If I just set another key to that and leave K unbound would that fix the problem?

Many thanks in advance  :)

You can just open FRED, go to Editors, "Mission Specs" and you can see which AI profiles are available.

Ah, very handy, thank you. I can stop annoying people now  :lol:

Re: [RELEASE] Shadow Genesis: 2017 Edition
SG uses standard Fury AI. AI files are modified BP ones. As for zoom script, it was always working for all weapons. In fact it's not working because weapons, but it is independent feature implemented via scripts. We added it for HyPaCS sniper rifle, but it will work great with Titan and other long-range armaments. I doubt if it's working with newer builds tho.

I tested it, it actually works. Interestingly it is the only working script you can find on the wiki (last updated 2019).

Re: [RELEASE] Shadow Genesis: 2017 Edition
So I'm on Westerplatte and no matter what I do, I get a Mission Failure cutscene as soon as the Neva jumps out (after a successful escape). This time I made sure to knock out all the Main Beams on all three Not-Shadow-From-Babylon-5-ships (apart from the one that goes after the artillery frigates near the end) and made sure the Aeolus survived (it seems to be the first to go after the Pennsylvania). Each time the station is fully evacuated but the Mission Debriefing says the Evac was a failure (despite also saying it's a success earlier on in the briefing). Do I really need to keep every allied warship alive? Is there a sneaky "lolnope" third convoy out of the station that's destroyed every time unless you have the foresight to know when they die...er deploy in the middle of battle? Is this a Kobayashi Maru?

(Please pardon my vague saltiness; this post is in part my rage-quit therapy :D )

EDIT: Forgot to say; yes, running the latest and greatest FSO and MediaVPs; Knossos is updated; Verified the Campaign twice and made sure it was the latest update. Log upon request (if I can remember how to do that....)

Re: [RELEASE] Shadow Genesis: 2020 Edition
Ah, before i forget this.

I got a report, that Version 2020.1.0 vanished from Knossos.

Have to say, that both i and Nyctaeus have no idea, what happened to this version. Or when this version got Nightmares that forced it to escape.
I know, that i uploaded it back then, when the update was finished. As well it was available.

Even one of the bugs is caused by the NuDeimos, i plan to reupload 2020.1.0 during the next couple of days. Most likely between christmas and new year's eve.
Will look in the report above in this process, to. So maybe it will be even 2020.1.1.

Re: [RELEASE] Shadow Genesis: 2017 Edition
The most recent version I see on Knossos is 2019.1.1. and I have no idea how an update can literally vanish that way without its authors' will.  :wtf:

Re: [RELEASE] Shadow Genesis: 2017 Edition
The only thing I can think of is that it somehow got uploaded at just the right time between the transition from the old Knossos server to the new one.

Played this mission several times. Unfortunately i was not able to reproduce any kind of debriefing issue.

Worked fine on my end. This mission should end in a cutscene right after the Neva starts to jump out.

Only if you want to get an Achievement ;)

Whatever happened to 2020.1.0... i reuploaded it. It should be available again on Knossos again (it was available the whole time in FSOInstaller  :o)

The changelog again:
Quote
2019.1.1 -> 2020.1.0
• Fixed a bug in "Devil's plain" that caused a collision between the GTCv Aequitas and Selfridge Installation.
• Fixed a turret in the GTI Aeglos model that did not work.
• Added additional translateable alternative subsystem names for better localization capabilities.

Interestingly i get much more debug errors with current builds than before. After it was requested to prepare a rerelease of this modification, i checked all missions for debug build errors... well, now i get completely new ones.
But right now i do not have the time for this to address and to resolve them. I will do that at a later date however.

Still very mediocre, as it was in 2013 :P
