Antivirus software heuristics really like to decide that FSO is malware.  :doubt:

Apparently the internet is currently down for most of the province I live in. So I can't post the required files but if someone wants to 7zip the files up you only really need the new files in Data/Movies and the 1.1 VP file.

Are you addressing the Diaspora team? If not where can we get the new files and the 1.1 VP?

He's addressing anyone on Windows, who could use the .exe installer and then create .7zip archives accessible to anyone on Linux or Mac.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Since nobody else has done it yet:

http://deviance.duckish.net/downloads/Diaspora_1.1.7z

Thanks a lot! BTW, do I copy the R1.1 patch VP file replacing the old 1.0.4 VP, or do I add them side by side?

I had that problem when running Bitdefender while downloading the original Diaspora release.  I had to disable bitdefender to unblock the download page.  (Avast just gives me a warning that the file is rarely downloaded and may be dangerous, but it does not stop me.)
Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.

Delete 1.0.4. Everything in that VP is in the 1.1 VP.

Re: Diaspora : Shattered Armistice patch 1.1 Release Candidate 1
Thanks for still updating and working on diaspora! that's great.
I like the new briefing animations, though I haven't seen them all yet, because I am working on my own 'Asheron campaign' missions the most.

After this update a couple of things changed in them as well... The fade in (when the mission starts) is always white now, and some of my landing events have stopped working  :confused: :nervous:. Has something been changed in FRED that could be the cause of these 'bugs'?
Also the messages are closer to each other (different fond?), so they are quite difficult to read. It's quite irritating, since I don't have any voices in my missions.

I am working on the 10th mission now, the 11th will be the final Asheron campaign mission.

Thanks for still working on this. Shattered Memories was already a highly, highly polished campaign so these animations are a nice final touch.

Keep up the good work, everyone. I'd hope I will see Command Briefing cutscenes/animations.

Hate to bring this up but I am afraid you broke something with 1.1

In the first real mission (I skipped training, I know the game after all) I was unable to land in any of the bays. So as long as the landing procedure has not changed with this release (correct orientation, low speed, set her down) it is broken.

Re: Diaspora : Shattered Armistice patch 1.1 Release Candidate 1
Can we get a confirmation on this? Also, what difficulty mode were you on? Since landings are different on medium and higher.

Same on the Ion destroyed bug because checking the mission in FRED it should be fine.

That mission hasn't actually changed in 1.1 though. In fact it's barely changed in 1.0.3 which was the last time the mission was altered.

Did the mission definitely work before? If so, in which revision? Also, what do you mean when you say you couldn't land?

Re: Diaspora : Shattered Armistice patch 1.1 Release Candidate 1
I've replayed the mission a couple of times from the techroom in 1.1, and I haven't had trouble landing.

EDIT - game difficulty was set to insane iirc

Last played this mission on 1.0.4 and it worked. Okay, I go back and play the tutorial on landing for higher difficulties to confirm this.

I've experienced this on the next mission (The Strike) on advanced difficulty when I tried to dock soon after the departure warning. I can't remember which landing pod I tried to land in but after touching down several times I couldn't dock. I'll have another look at it later today.

Okay, this is bizarre. Neither of those missions were actually altered. Which suggests this is actually a code issue.
