Re: RELEASE: Uncharted Territory
I temporarily switched back to the 2012 mediavps and it worked...the Atlas docked with the Crane and everything went normal.  I was playing on a 3.7.3 nightly build for both cases.

I remember Macfie saying a while back that sometimes docking points don't always transfer correctly to certain ships in the 2014 vps.  So maybe an Argo transport can't dock with an AWACS in this case.

I just finished this (using shadows build and mediaVPs2014) and got the bad ending.  Gotta replay and try for the good one now!

What do you mean by "shadows build"?

He means a build with deferred lighting and soft shadows, which will be becoming the new standard rendering engine Soon™.

<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.

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Re: RELEASE: Uncharted Territory
Thanks, Admiral; I couldn't remember exactly what it was!    The filename is "fs2_open_3_7_1_shadows_SSE2"

Re: RELEASE: Uncharted Territory
Well, I was playing with a fairly recent nightly build so I'm not sure trying a slightly more recent one would fix my problem.  But if that's what you guys recommend, I'll give it a try.

Re: RELEASE: Uncharted Territory
For what it's worth, I tried playing this with the latest nightly build (while using 2014 Mediavps) and still had the problem I've posted about.  The Atlas, in the 6th mission, won't dock with the Crane so it's impossible to get the good ending this way.  The only way around it I've found is to temporarily switch to the 2012 mvps for this one mission.

Re: RELEASE: Uncharted Territory
In the mission where you jump back to the nebula it is possible to get stuck by saving the Emmerich, which is what I thought I was supposed to do.
