BtA: Slaves of Chaos [UPDATED TO SUPPORT FSO 3.8]


BtA: Slaves of Chaos Full Release!

Fly as a GTA pilot serving under Admiral Po aboard the GTD Intrepid. You helped defeat the Shivans, you chose the right side during the GTI Rebellion, and now your skill has awarded you a squad position assigned to the wasteland of Antares. Your job is to be a simple peace-keeping force in a system that's a melting pot of Terrans and Vasudans.. both good, and bad. But when your early patrol is hit by cunning smugglers, you'll follow some threads that lead to an unexpected enemy... one that out-matches even the Admiral.

This release also includes the small 2 mission demo. The demo has been updated and fixed in a number of small ways. Additionally, it's now fully voice acted! The demo is not required for the main BtA story, but it helps in a few small ways. Consider it more like a prequel to BtA: Slaves of Chaos. In Mefistofele, you'll fly with local criminals and smugglers as they seek to make a simple profit, but they might have gotten in over their heads this time.

You might also want to read our pages on the Wiki which I'll be updating over the next couple days.

A Note From Mjn-

I am excited to finally release Between the Ashes: Slaves of Chaos! This project began as an exercise for me to learn FRED and with the help of many others, it became something better than I ever hoped. There's a whole list of guys around HLP that put up with me and my questions over the years.. and I owe more than one of them quite a few favors! Those guys are in addition to the actual team listed below who put in many hours to get this all put together. Believe me when I tell you, this was a team effort.. not an Mjn.Mixael effort.. and I really hope you enjoy it!

Lastly, to the best of my ability, all the mod assets are credited properly in the credits.tbl. So if you are going to ransack the modpack (and I know you are!), just be sure to give proper credit. After that, take whatever you need, no need to ask. Go forth and make more campaigns, for that is the true lifeblood of HLP!

Re: BtA: Slaves of Chaos [FULL RELEASE]
Pushed out another quick hotfix. I will not tolerate mission soft-locks!

Also resolved a handful of issues regarding key rebinds.

Re: BtA: Slaves of Chaos [FULL RELEASE]
Core has once again been patched to fix an issue where progression would stall if you skipped a mission.

Re: BtA: Slaves of Chaos [FULL RELEASE]
Core updated to fix a lot of bugs. A LOT.

This biggest fixes an issue that ceases all tracked campaign progress if you skip a mission in any way. This should fix checkpoints, cutscenes, journal entries (won't load ones you missed, though), and snail saving.

Fix some spelling errors.

Fix issue that allowed the Cardinal to be disabled in m2_08.

Re: BtA: Slaves of Chaos [FULL RELEASE]
Posted the new patch that fixes the following issues...

Fix issue that caused Journal Entries, News Entries and Tech Room Entries to not be unlocked if the player skips a mission.
Fix mission stall in Acts of Voltion.
Debriefings when medals are awarded now will not show when the mission is played from the Tech Room.
Fix HUD in How The West Was Lost 2nd half of the mission.
Fix issue that prevented a bonus mission from unlocking in How The West Was Lost.
Remove ability to skip the intro cutscene in Camp Angel so that players don't miss the checkpoints.
Player will be mauled by the dreaded Pebekkemen if he tries to be a hero in The Texas Seven... And if the player survives that encounter for longer than 30 seconds, he will be mauled by the dreaded Pentewere as well. Good luck, pilot.
Introduce extra events to ensure the Cardinal cannot be disabled in The Texas Seven.
