Re: RELEASE: The Aftermath Reboot
Got a bug in After1...during the "Galileo Demise" mission...I board the transport at the tail end but it is deemed a failure and had to redo it. Tried the 2nd run but no cigar. I will send a debug:

This is the 1.1.0 update btw. A few others got this and had to die 5 times to get to the next part of the story
 

 
Re: RELEASE: The Aftermath Reboot
Try changing your Aftermath version to 1.0.0 and running the mission then.

Unless Herkie changed the campaign file name between 1.0.0 and 1.1.0, if so - ugh, more complicated.

I was supposed to make a short presentation about basics of optical fibers and here I am, listening to Eurobeat while reading about quantum cryptography.

I did the 5 death skip during the mission. I will take a look at 1.0.0 later

Almost forgot: check my most recent post in the After2 release. I found a gamekiller and tried a few things during that mission. No cigar

Re: RELEASE: The Aftermath Reboot
Herkie sent me this message on FB to post here...hopefully it helps some with "Reboot" file issues like he said:

"Extract the FC2 file or campaign file from the mission VP to the mission folder and edit it."

I guess use an older one.




NOTE:  I'm not a tech guy so if this doesn't work I can't really help unfortunately.  I was just told to post it.

Re: RELEASE: The Aftermath Reboot
Another message from Herkie (this is about a problem I had with the "With Their Pants Down" mission where it doesn't record the number of kills you get right):

"HLP must have deprecated the Num_kilks SEXP. If so, then this is serious problem. There are several missions there that use this SEXP."


I was able to fix the issue by playing with the previous version of Reboot.

Re: RELEASE: The Aftermath Reboot
Like others have said, I also had a problem with "Galileo's Demise" where I couldn't progress.  Changing back to the previous version of "Reboot" fixed this and I was able to progress.

Does it work for anyone on the current "Reboot" version?

 
Re: RELEASE: The Aftermath Reboot
Haven't tested it, but did you fix the campaignfile? Because this was most likely the issue; no need to revert all other changes.

Re: RELEASE: The Aftermath Reboot
I don't know how to do that, it would be up to Herkie.

(I tried putting in the previous version's campaign file but that didn't fix the problem I was having with "With Their Pants Down" so I'm not sure it would fix the issue with "Galileo's Demise".)

nop, i just give a try now, still block, say the mission was failure with 1.1.0, and i don't have the option to come back with previous version

 
Re: RELEASE: The Aftermath Reboot
If you die 5 times in a row you should be able to proceed to the next mission.

yes i know but ... you know ... it's kinda disapointing :p

 
Re: RELEASE: The Aftermath Reboot
Well, broken is broken and unless you're willing to extract the campaignfile and fix it yourself it's probably the quickest way to advance. :D

Regretfully, I'd advise you to do the five death skip thing.  Sometimes it seems like Herkie wants to give an update another try and sometimes it seems like he wants to walk away from it all.  I can't say when, or if, there will be an update.

 
Re: RELEASE: The Aftermath Reboot
Well if Herkie doesn't want right now, you should give him a while. Perhabs he'll return after a couple months; from what I've seen many modders that manage to release something (well, I'm not one of them) often take a break from modding.

Fixing the campaign file isn't that hard though, unless nobody has Knossos access besides Herkie.

Re: RELEASE: The Aftermath Reboot
I'm not trying to make demands of Herkie, he can take as long a break as he wants.

I'm just telling Kher that it would probably be better for him to do the five death skip thing since Herkie doesn't have a predictable schedule and it could be months or longer before a fix happens.

Again, I'm not great with fixing or editing stuff so said fix I can't really do right now.

 
Re: RELEASE: The Aftermath Reboot
I'll take a look at it later today, fixing the campaign file shouldn't be hard.

no problem, since i don't know how to fix or make code, i don't blame you at all, like this campaign so i can wait :)

Anyway, thanks for your work all :)

 
Re: RELEASE: The Aftermath Reboot
OK, here it is. Note: it appears like Herkie wanted to make the missions around Act 3-d and Act 6-e SOC loops... I didn't do that, but it should work now though.
