Re: TBP 3.5 Work in Progress (Split from Star Fury Pilot Unofficial Patch 2.0 released!)
Each mod/TC uploaded to Knossos has a webpage with links to download the mod using the Knossos desktop client (see Diaspora as an example).  Clicking that big "Download with Knossos" button opens a page for the mod directly in the locally installed Knossos app.  If you want to give someone a link to download TBP, you should give them TBP's fsnebula.org link whenever it becomes publicly available on Knossos.
However, if you just open up the Knossos app normally (i.e. from a Start Menu shortcut), TBP will be listed among all the other mods that you have installed and are available.
So if what you want is for the user to only see TBP whenever Knossos is run, that's not possible currently (and probably ever, though you'd have to talk with ngld about that).
On a different topic, what's the policy for using TBP assets in other mods?

I noticed a huge update for TBP via SVN. What has been changed? I am still traveling a lot so not had much time to sit and play.

The directory structure has been changed to work with Knossos.

Re: TBP 3.5 Work in Progress (Split from Star Fury Pilot Unofficial Patch 2.0 released!)
I see that. So how do we get it into Knossos to keep play testing?

You can either ask Karajorma for access to the beta on Knossos or sync with the SVN repo and move that into your Knossos data directory.  If you're just testing, the easiest is probably downloading via Knossos.

I would like to have access to that too, if it is more easy than the SVN stuff which I never figured out ;). I could at least check the Star Fury Pilot missions and the two mini campaigns, that I patched in the origin of this thread...

Hm, I just registered and am now waiting for the conformation email. How long does that take? My username will be wesp5 of course :)...

The mail usually arrives within seconds or minutes (depends on how long your provider takes to process the mail). That is, if you provide a valid email....

I had the same thing happen. No confirmation email received. I double checked the email I used.

Update... it seems it does not like hotmail accounts. I used my gmail one and it worked.

I mistyped once but after that I made sure it was correct. Still no confirmation on Yahoo!

Once you try to register an account, that name is taken. Any further registrations for that same name will be ignored. In any case, the server reported that it successfully delivered the mail to yahoo 14 minutes ago. Make sure to check your spam folder. If the mail still doesn't show up, it's Yahoo's fault.

That was it :)! I found the email in the spam folder, which the new Yahoo interface hides which is why I didn't think of it...

Re: TBP 3.5 Work in Progress (Split from Star Fury Pilot Unofficial Patch 2.0 released!)
Is it okay if I post any errors from testing the new release here? I'll start with stuff from my patch which worked fine under TBP 3.4b with FSO 3.7.0!

Global changes:
I added "repair" to several "rearm" messages in strings.tbl, because the command is used for both. I recommend to include that in 3.5! It's attached.

Global issues:
It seems as if all sun, planet, nebula and other background items have been renamed which leaves an empty sky. I can fix this in my patch, but this
will probably happen in all old TBP missions, so was this really necessary? All campaigns must be changed more or less at least for this big change!
P.S.: It also seemed that the planet Narn is missing, like there still is a SB_Narn_01, but not Stars_Planet_Narn01-03 which were available in 3.4b.

Global warnings:
Sound 'Ship_Jump_3rd.wav' has more than one channel but is used as a 3D sound! 3D sounds may only have one channel. Can you fix this?

Local warnings:
Two missing spaceship classes ("Escort Aurora" and "Sheridan's Aurora") which I fixed in the mission files as this is probably a missions problem.

A Distant Star/In the Beginning/Battle of the Line:
I get a mission load up warning about 2 missing weapon classes and continue, but all weapons in the Weaponry Pool are in the TBP 3.5 table too.
Fast debug gives this "Warning: Could not find a usable muzzle glow bitmap (vorlon_glow) for weapon 'VE Lightning Cannon'!" Can you fix this?

A view from a gallery:
Warning: Could not find a usable bitmap (Drakh_neutron) for weapon 'DH Scatter'!
Warning: Could not find a usable glow bitmap (trailwep_glow) for weapon 'DH Scatter'!

All missions already have the new background bitmap filenames in the SVN, so it's not a problem.
As for changing this in your missions, Notepad++ find and replace in files works really well.

By all missions you don't only mean the included two campaigns but all other missions too, yes?

I already have done that for my patch, I just wanted to make you aware that this is global :)...

I'm not seeing any difference between SVN missions and the ones I submitted to Knossos.

I'm not seeing any difference between SVN missions and the ones I submitted to Knossos.

I only see the Raider Wars on Knossos, so I wondered about all the others out there. Will
they all be included in TBP 3.5? Like if I make sure the Star Fury Pilot missions work fine
and also the Shadows and Vorlons mini campaigns that I fixed in my patch, my patch can
become redundant as everything will be available from Knossos in the correct version?
