Destiny of Peace Broken? [FIXED]
Greetings all,

I guess I'll be joining the virgin post bandwagon in stating that I've run into a problem while playing FSPort. I downloaded all the proper materials (mediavps_3612, fsport-mediavps, and the fsport files themselves) and I'm not getting any error messages when I boot up the game. However, while playing through the Destiny of Peace campaign, I've run into a frustrating little conundrum: the Unknown Craft (its got the model of a PVFr Satis, if that helps) in Mission 5 (Shadow Dancer) that must be destroyed to accomplish the mission's primary objective appears to be invulnerable to my attacks. I've tried everything from dumb-firing Stilettos at its turrets, to pelting its hull with Phoenix Vs, but it seems to be totally resistant to everything I and my wing-mates throw at it.

On a side note, its also funny to see asteroids routinely colliding with the ship, with no noticeable effect XD

Kinda frustrating when I've accomplished both the secondary and bonus objectives, and this little freighter refuses to die (well after its fighter and cruiser escort have been vaporized, lol). I don't remember this mission being broken in the original retail version of ST, and I regret that I can't currently enjoy the rest of such a great re-release of a classic campaign. Would any of you guys be able to help a newcomer to the forum out?

Thanks in advance :)

Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
:welcome:

This is a terrific error report, so my compliments on being a responsible and mature newbie rather than an "it doesn't work help" noob.

This is an interesting problem.  The ship is specifically flagged as invulnerable, but it is supposed to become vulnerable once you approach within 1500 meters of it.  You may have stumbled across a bug.

What build are you using?  Try 3.6.18 if you're using something else.

 
Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
Hello there, Goober, and thanks for the reply/greeting!

I opened the Launcher (5.5g for Windows) and the build I've been using is 3.6.18 SSE2 (this one: C:\Games\Freespace2\fs2_open_3_6_18.exe). Should I try using the other SSE build and/or the non-SSE build? I haven't run into any graphical/performance errors with the SSE2 one thus far (unless this little teeny bug is being caused by that, as you suspect :P).

I'll see if the other two builds solve the problem, and I'll let you know how things work out :)

 
Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
Yeah, I attempted the mission with both SSE and the non-SSE builds. Still no dice :(

Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
SSE/non-SSE shouldn't make a difference in this case.

In order to rule out any facepalm situations, are you actually approaching within 1500 meters?  Or are you trying to destroy it via missiles from long range, or sending your wingmen at it?

 
Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
Lol, I went right at it and was firing point blank in the latest play-through :P

 
Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
And it keeps single-handedly slaughtering both Alpha and Beta Wings, and (after a long while) me as well... the Satis sure does have good turret coverage, that's for sure XD

 
Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
I'm wondering if it might be caused by where I put the campaign .vp file? I put it in this directory:

C:\Games\Freespace2\fsport

And its called: fsport-destinyofpeace.vp

Should I put it in its own sub-folder or something?

Oh, and I also downloaded it from here originally, so maybe its not the most current version of the campaign?

http://fsport.hard-light.net/website/ and the download link itself: http://fsport.freespacemods.net/releases/fsport-destinyofpeace.zip

Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
Goob misled you a little - this is almost a terrific error report, but it's lacking the key component that might let us solve the problem. Please generate and post an fs2_open.log file; instructions on how to do it are pinned in the troubleshooting forum.

Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
Ok, so I ran the debug build as instructed, and tried loading the mission in question.

Then I got messages like this:

For Large, Medium, and Small Asteroids... though I doubt this is the cause of the problem. Thought I should bring it up, though. Should I actually play the mission to see if the build picks up any other error(s)?

Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
Just post the fs2_open.log from FreeSpace2/data. The error you posted there is an innocent trait of recent builds, it won't cause the problem you're describing (which may well be an executable bug and not pop up at all in the log either, but no harm checking).

 
Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
Ok, so after leaving DoP alone for a few days (and playing through the FS1 Campaign and Operation: Templar, great work, guys, btw! :) I ran the debug build while playing the mission, and subsequently searched for a debug report called 'fs2_open.log'. After finding it, I've attached the file to this post for you guys to diagnose. I'm hoping you guys can find the root of the problem.

Thanks in advance for your help, gentlemen!

I'm not super good at troubleshooting FSPort logs, but this looks good to me. (It was a long shot that this particular bug would leave any fingerprints in the log, anyway. Are we sure this isn't a mission error?

(Is Destiny of Peace just supposed to pop into the FSPort folder like that?)

Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
-mod fsport-mediavps,fsport,fsport,mediavps_3612

That does not look right.  You are showing the fsport twice in your mod line.  This has caused problems in the past.  Check the command line in your launcher.

I run DOP in it's own mod folder.  It has a custom table but I don't think that would cause it to crash if you put it in the fsport folder.

Normal people believe that if it isn't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it isn't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
The difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers is:
Mechanical Engineers build weapons.  Civil Engineers build targets

Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
Alright, so I attempted to put the campaign and campaign voice vps into their own mod folder as suggested. After putting it here (C:\Games\Freespace2\fsport\fsport-destinyofpeace) and here: (C:\Games\Freespace2\fsport-destinyofpeace) I was able to load the mod via the launcher, but I've been getting an error when loading a mission along these lines: ('17 ships have failed to load...'), whereas if I put it here (C:\Games\Freespace2\fsport; where it was before) I don't run into any errors, except for the one that prompted me to start this thread, lol.

What's the address where you've got Destiny of Peace located, Macfie? I'm hoping its just a simple mistake in where I've put the files themselves.

Alright, so I attempted to put the campaign and campaign voice vps into their own mod folder as suggested. After putting it here (C:\Games\Freespace2\fsport\fsport-destinyofpeace) and here: (C:\Games\Freespace2\fsport-destinyofpeace) I was able to load the mod via the launcher, but I've been getting an error when loading a mission along these lines: ('17 ships have failed to load...'), whereas if I put it here (C:\Games\Freespace2\fsport; where it was before) I don't run into any errors, except for the one that prompted me to start this thread, lol.

What's the address where you've got Destiny of Peace located, Macfie? I'm hoping its just a simple mistake in where I've put the files themselves.

Ok, disregard this, I forgot to add a CONFIG file to the folder (C:\Games\Freespace2\fsport-destinyofpeace), telling it where the mediavps are located, lol! So I fixed the source of those pesky loading errors, but the Satis is still invincible :S

So I'm guessing its a mission error?

Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
It's very likely a mission error.  I've been trying to find time to run the mission through a debugger.  I should be able to do that now that 3.4 is out.

Re: Destiny of Peace Broken?
Turns out this was actually a code bug:

But I've modified the mission so that it will work anyway.  Redownload Destiny of Peace from here and continue where you left off.

YAY! Thank you, Goob! I downloaded v3.4 last night as well, and now that I've finished my finals, I can dedicate more time to blasting those pesky Shivans! :D
