Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
This bug is usually caused when the 3.6.12 MediaVPs are not installed correctly.

Please post your fs2_open.log file.  Instructions on how to do this can be found in this post.

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Thanks in advance for looking into it. When I tried it this time it just crashed when I pressed OK to break into the debugger.

The log is attached

You are missing the MV_root file. Get it here: http://mvp.fsmods.net/3612/MV_Root_3612.zip

Also, you should use this binary: fs2_open_3_7_2_RC1_SSE, the other one won't work correctly.

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
I have a bug where after killing two Ravanas nothing happens after that.
Also, after loading from checkpoints, the fighter/bomber wings get completely replenished.

Applying patch 1.2 now.

You need a recent build, with the BP compatibility stuff, because it uses a fairly new SEXP.

Can you tell us what kind of ship we'll be flying for Steele's mission? :D

GTF Erinyes. If you read the intel entries, Steele was a fighter pilot back when he flew his mission.

-----------------------------------

Because of various reasons, I probably won't be releasing the next Battle Captains missions for a while.

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Um... Can has more cap ship mission...? ._.

Btw i love thease kind of missions... ever since i picked up Freespace 2 years ago i'v been crying myself to sleep wishing that something like this would come out... Now that a few missions are out i want moar! MOAR I SAY MOAR!

Anyway nice work with the mission i got my ass kicked a few times... but 1 small issue i noticed was that even though the bombers start to attack the ravana they dont seem to care about the beam turrets... so here's a question.. when i order the wings to attack the ravana should i just order them to destroy my target or disarm it? Which of the commands breaks the bombers? XD

Like you prolly noticed i love cap ship missions and you've done a damn good job to make me want even more! XD

Edit: Btw it prolly sounded like i started demanding you to do this and that but i didnt mean it that way even though it probably sounds like that... I'm just hoping / praying that you could make more thease kind of missions. :3

I assume you've played 'No Time to Bleed' (Lepanto's first), 'The Blade Itself', and 'One Future'?

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Thanks for the positive feedback. :)

I'm afraid I won't be doing more Battle Captains for a while, because  I have a ton of other stuff to work on first.

The bombers not disarming turrets is a known coding bug. For now, just work around it, I guess;  there's an event that automaticallly orders any bombers attacking most capships to disarm their turrets, so different orders won't work.

It's a mission in BP2's Act 3 that puts you in command of a Custos-X patrol cruiser.

Let's have THAT debate at another place and time.

In that case yes i have... but thease are just single missions... Even the No Time to Bleed mission felt way too short. I enjoyed the chance to play with a deimos class corvette 110% but it felt like the mission was over in a flash. Oh and you seriously need to do something about the damn nebula. XD One other thing i noticed is that supposedly i'm constantly colliding with something in the Lopez mission. The damn warning is screaming 24/7 "COLLISION! COLLISION! YOU'RE HITTING SOMETHING IDIOT COLLISION!"..... Wait... i'm actually smashing the carthage into my own fighters? XD

Yeah, you're just hitting your own strikecraft wings. They orbit rather close to the Carthage, because I changed the model's radius so as to zoom the camera out to a better distance.
