I wanna give some Super
thanks to Axem
, without him this WoD remake wouldn't even be a shade of it's current form. His awesome Lua skills, fredding, cutscene making skills, endless patience when it comes to helping me out and polite canadian nature made this all possible!
Further shoutouts to Swifty
, for contributing his amazing coding ability, enabling multilock, shadows and relentless bug fixing!
Also thanks to Dahblount
, for their modelling contributions! Upgrading those old ugly ships into things of beauty!
And my good friend Mpgrey
for going through the (rather massive) effort of spelling and grammar checking!
Also thanks to: Battuta, Sab0o, Droid803, Andrewofdoom, Valathil, Thaeris and AtomicClucker for various things!FAQIt says WoD is a stand alone, does this mean its not required to have Freespace 2 installed if I want to play WoD?
Yup!Is Linux&Mac supported?
Sort of! I personally don't have any knowledge about Linux and Mac operating systems (and consequently don't have any machines to test with). But hopefully there should be builds available soon.
I just can't provide any direct support for this.How does the difficulty in WoD differ from Freespace 2?
In Freespace 2, the missions remain the same regardless of difficulty. The difficulty setting just affects how much extra damage the player can endure and how fast his weapon energy and afterburners recharge.
In WoD, from medium difficulty onward, the numbers for the player remain the same but the amount of enemies that get spawned will increase. So if you are a veteran Freespace 2 player who normally plays on medium difficulty, it might be worth playing WoD on Hard or maybe even Insane!
Can I use WoD assets for my own mod/campaign/idea?
You can, assuming its being used for non commerical purposes.
I would appreciate it if you could drop me a PM if you intend on using any of WoD's stuff though.
Take note that I don't own the rights to any of the music, some of the sounds and some of the ship models that are being used. Refer to the credits for more details on that.Is it possible to use the wxlauncher instead of the one provided with WoD?
My framerate is hitting rock bottom...
Disabling shadows in the launcher should help regaining some of those frames for you. If you are running a pc that doesn't have a dedicated videocard (intel integrated) you are probably just out of luck when it comes to getting a smooth framerate.I need a debug buildHere you goThese controls are all wrong!
You can easily switch between the new and classic Freespace 2 controls by pressing the default button in the control config.How wholesome and family friendly is WoD?
It contains some mild swearing and some unlockable lewd.
