Released EXE fs2_open 3.2
Ok, I dunno if this has been said before. I can't sit through 4 pages of complaints, but aside from the normal beam stuff...

1) I like the sound of rotating firing points

2) When I use a fighter beam, thers no explosion on the enemy vessel's destruction

) I never get credit for the kill...

i'm not going to bother to read all the 4 or 5 pages of this topic,
but how can you use a fighter beam?  did you hack the weapons and ships .TBLs and make it available to use?

I heard about some wireframe targeting thing. How does that work? Every time I go to configure my key controls, and then go the miscellaneus, the game crashes.

Either fill in a bug report (sorry havent got the link handy) or give us your specs.

Wireframe targeting is CTRL-ALT-Q.  You can't change it, yet.

Has anyone spoken to Komet about integrating his visual enhancements into the project?

Did some fancy graphics enhancements for the explosions and stuff - most of it was new "effects" but it was pretty impressive. His own little "forum" says he's away on another project or something like that.

A few people have (Inq left a message on Komet's BB) I emailed him a while ago but have recieved no response. I guess someone's going to have to redo it because Komet is either unable or unwilling to let us have the code. :blah:

I have a question...

Is it possible to change the code so that when your fighter reaches critical, it gets more unmaneuverable, the reactor's output is cut, and shields/afterburners can fail?

It would make the game much harder, and maybe more interesting, too.

As of now, I can't tell the difference between my fighter at 99% and at 9%...

Lucasarts did something similar in Xwing Vs. TIE fighter - when your ship moved slowly it was less maneouverable.

You could have loads of goofy things happenening with damage effects ;)

 
I'm all for enhancing features, but priority should be given to adding things that people have wanted to do for a while, rather than altering the gameplay dynamic. It would be an interesting idea though. :)
