Yeah, get that log. I'm really curious what's going on here.

Re: FreeSpace Blue: FreeSpace 2 as it should've been.
A straight CTD with no FSO-generated error message is one of the more annoying classes of errors; the debug log almost never has something useful, and the only real way to track it down is to reproduce the crash in a debugger.

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.

<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.

Re: FreeSpace Blue: FreeSpace 2 as it should've been.
Is it possible that the "Database" could get put into FS2Blue like it is for other BP campaigns so we can see the intelligence entries while playing that campaign?


Also, when trying FSBlue, I noticed a minor issue with the ships database:  Why isn't the Amun bomber in the database?  The Osiris and 2 FS2 Vasudan bombers were there but not the Amun.
EDIT:  I tried regular FS2 and found the Amun wasn't there either.  So never mind on my second point (though I personally found the Amun to be better than the Osiris).

I don't think the Amun is in FS2, is it?

I eventually found that it wasn't.



As to my other question:  would it be possible to get Intelligence Entries in FS2 Blue?

Re: FreeSpace Blue: FreeSpace 2 as it should've been.
I just played "Endgame" in FS2 Blue.

The mission requires you to fail the secondary objective of destroying the Iceni, but I was able to accomplish the primary objective of protecting the Knossos.  In the debriefing though I got failure music.  Shouldn't the "successful" debriefing music have played?

Re: FreeSpace Blue: FreeSpace 2 as it should've been.
The "successful" debriefing music only plays if all primary and secondary objectives have been completed.  If any of these objectives have been failed, the "average" music plays.

Of course, the mission designer can configure the "average" condition to use the "success" music track if he so chooses.

Terribly sorry for the bump, but I am wondering if this project is still being worked on or if it is considered complete.

It is considered complete for the time being.
