Would you say "Homesick" is the same type of campaign as Transcend/Sync? I think so, even though it leans slightly more toward traditional FS gameplay.
I haven't actually played Homesick, unfortunately. I tried, but it's very out of date and not properly configured; it lack a mod.ini and other files needed by the launcher.
Try mine. I've attached it. It certainly has a mod.ini, and worked fine for me back when I was playing ver. 3.6.12.
Still not working. Sorry Lorric, not sure what the problem is. FSO starts fine but Homesick isn't in the campaign room.
EDIT: Wait... ok, the files in the .rar are set up very weirdly. First, there's a "Homesick" folder. inside that is a "data" folder, which contains the tables, and a second "Homesick" folder. All well and good. But the second "Homesick" folder contains a complete copy of the mod, including a second "data" folder with duplicated tables and a third "Homesick" folder that DOES contain the VPs, mod.ini, et cetera. Fractal folders! I'll try installing just the second "Homesick" folder and see what happens.
EDIT OF EDIT: It worked! Thanks Lorric! Just played the first mission, "Smart-Casual, Minimum Wage"; loved the briefing and dialogue. (and the recommendations...
EDITMANIA!!!: AAAAND it stopped working. Big chain of bugs with the first red-alert. Ghai!
@Mongoose: Interesting, I didn't know that. Like I said, Transcend would need really good voice acting to do it justice, but it could be done.
Did you ever VA anything else I've played? (Blue Planet, Derelict, Warzone...)
MORE EDIT: Actually, I just beat "The Antagonist", and you were in the credits. That mod had good voice acting; who did you act?
You're welcome. I'm glad it worked for you, you seem happy.
Surely you are not talking about what I sent you having folders within folders, I checked the .rar file which I hadn't deleted yet, and it has just one folder, which contains everything else, no more folders.
It may have created a new folder to put the Homesick folder inside though when you took it out. I've noticed it does that for me when I take things out of .rar files. So I always have to go into the folder, cut out the folder inside, delete the now empty folder, and paste the cut out in. But that still doesn't explain the third folder. Unless it put the contents inside your current Homesick folder with the Homesick mod that doesn't work for you. That might account for the presence of three folders.
Anyway, you sorted it out so it did what it was supposed to do in the end whatever happened.
