You can always extract the sound directly with VPView32.

I thought I might be able to extract them somehow, but I have no idea how. Cheers :-)

I'll give it a try.

PS - do you want to look over the article when I have competed it in draft form before I send it off to the editors at Coin-Drop and make sure I haven't got anything wrong?

Re: The Blue Planet Oracle (full BP2/3 spoilers within!)
As a random GTVA civilian what're my chances of surviving to the end of BP3?
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

How much space travel do you have coming up in the near future?
Let there be light
Let there be moon
Let there be stars and let there be you
Let there be monsters and let there be pain
Let us begin to feel again

Yup, that worked. I used VPView32 to extract the three sound files (the beam up sound the beam firing sound, and the beam powering down sound. Then I used VLC media player to convert them to MP3 format, then used an on-line tool to combine them into one mp3 file :-)

How much space travel do you have coming up in the near future?

precisely the average across the GTVA civilian population!

Survival depends on the escorts provided.  If it's alpha one, you're safe.

Yeah, what was up with that? Is our expectation of GTVA pilots skewed because Alpha 1 is a badass, or what?

Are yall telling me you've never lost an Elysium (a tiny eggshell ship) to a bunch of Nahemas while you were distracted dogfighting Dragons? Plus insane is the most realistic difficulty. Tell me how many escort missions yall got done 100% on the first try on Insane.

 
Re: The Blue Planet Oracle (full BP2/3 spoilers within!)
the strike that sam gets hit with is very much a **** This Transport In Particular one

one could even ask if the shivans did want to **** that transport in particular 🤔

They were obviously attracted by the Nagari presence of Hamuel Bei, and by the taint of Vishnans upon him.

Any chance for Sol going supernova?

Can Alpha 1 protect Sol against supernovas?

I was still thinking in terms of Medium, where Dragons are irritating rather than hyper-lethal--generally in FS2 on Med I'd ignore fighters at first (or order wingmates to cover me) and bullrush the bombers before they could drop their payloads. On Insane...yeah no they're definitely in trouble. It does look kind of silly on medium though, watching the fighters get into a furball while those bombs are sloooooooooooooooowly closing on the Elysium.

In my recent playthrough of Freespace Blue I completed Exodus without losing a single ship, even the Nebtuu! (It was on normal though but I feel proud! :lol:)

Reminds me, I gotta upload that part to youtube.

Edit: Apocalypse was a different story for me though. Probably would've been best for Alpha 1 to stay in Capella...

Well, technically in reality pilots would interact with each other and act intelligently, they would also be more or less educated on how to shape the battlefield to their advantage as much as possible. So...

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 don't see how that'd make a difference.

 
Re: The Blue Planet Oracle (full BP2/3 spoilers within!)
I'm kind of venting my frustration at Freespace AI a bit, sorry...

Yet, in this kind of a case a good strategy is to try and pull the dogfight away to a general location between bombers and their target so you can at least shoot down a couple bombs while bouncing around with Dragons. Not that an Elysium wouldn't realistically go down to some random primary fire, I guess.

Re: The Blue Planet Oracle (full BP2/3 spoilers within!)
You know the one time you have to actually "pull the dogfight away" to a different location(The Roman's Blunder) is considered  one of the hardest missions in FS2 on insane. Now imagine that with ****ing Dragons.

Turns out trying to run away while being shot at gets you killed.
