Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
I was wondering... Would it be possible to somehow mod a "survival"ish/ defend 'till death mode for freespace 2? You know with you flying caps ships?

Yes, it's not hard - it'd just be a gauntlet mission, but with the player(s) in capships.

We even built multiplayer capship command missions for the BP Multi project.

Merry Christmas, one and all! IOU a slightly-belated stocking stuffer.

Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

Yes, indeed. No other reason for UEF ships to be firing at each other here. :)

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
How would you say the difficulty of this compares to the previous two BC releases?  Most advised to play Severanti on Medium but Lopez on Easy/VE.

Try Medium, I'd say.

Thanks, my loyal fan! :) I'll hopefully finish by New Year's, but no promises.

niffiwan has also stated he looks forward to playing it, so doesn't that mean you have two fans?  ;)

 
Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Oh, I thinks he's got a bit more than 2 fans ;)

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Sorry if i have to summon the elderly ghost of the FSO engineers again, but my game keeps crashing every now and then. ;_;
I can't narrow it down, it happens on complete random events and played time.

I already reinstalled the game (i use the Steam version), downloaded all the files again and applied the files from niffiwan (the one with the "too many turrets on the Hedetet)
I already tried out 3_7_2_10997 and the 3_7_1_20141223_r11204 build...
I honestly hope i didn't do anything too stupid, the error must come from somewhere/one right?  ;)

Graphics Driver is up to date.
Here is my .log :

Plz hulp meh! D:

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Update blueplanet, blueplanet2 and download mediavps 2014. Use FreeSpace Open Instaler or download them manually.


After some thought...
BattleCaptains-GTVA needs mediavps_3612 but newest bp and bp2 need mediavps_2014, so maybe there is conflict? :confused:

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Go to the BattleCaptains-GTVA folder, and open your mod.ini. Change the "mediavps_3612" line at the bottom to read "mediavps_2014". See if that works. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Thx for your help. I will do your suggestions :)

The installer said all my mods and mediavps are up to date (but i downloaded them again just to be sure)
Game still keeps crashing unfortunately :(
After some testing i could maybe narrow it down a bit:
Most of my crashes were directly after the Cain class cruisers (the first wave) were destroyed, maybe that helps :)

No problem Lepanto. First we have to determine if it's a problem caused by my foolishness or a mod related problem ;)

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
I still have the antipodes problem, but I'm currently playing again.
First crash happened after the Moloch was destroyed, I think I was giving orders to my bomber wings to return into escort position...
Second attempt I did nothing when the Moloch went down and the game kept running...
