Re: [WIP] Shattered Stars: A Deepness Within Act 0 (DEMO)
Did you plan to switch to open development for longer or was that just another accident like with the design docs?

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities.

So "Download at your risk" wasn't referring to spoilers? ;)

I figured there would be weirdness and errors but I didn't expect the working files to not work period (Unicode format tables, hurr). :P Makes one wonder how any of this was tested to work period.

Curiosity has won and i have downloaded that.  :D

Well, i also have one of the earlier Shattered Stars drafts, that were available on GitHub, that one was not even runable because of errors.

This one here let me into the game at least, even i was not able to go further the pilot selection, because i was informed about a missing campaign... and i can not select another, because there is no campaign room here. Even a placebo campaign file with the same name of that one, that is set in the game_settings.tbl did not work ^^.

So yes, the only thing i can use is FRED2... maybe it will work if i use this as a mod for FS2. Did not tested that.

This is not a demo release. It's meant to allow Woutersmits to download it from Dropbox. You might want to ask him?

To anyone who downloaded it: Are you willing to help me? Next month's deadline is approaching fast.

Push back the deadline indefinitely. It needs significant amount of work that you wouldn't be able to do in a month even if you did devote all your time and energy to completing. DO NOT make the same mistakes I made.

I never said it was, so you can kindly dispense with that particular method of thought.

Though if you'd focused on sensible mod building as previously advised and not trying to have the latest and greatest features that don't exist yet in addition to throwing in everything AND the kitchen sink, you might not be asking for help to speed along development and you'd need less than a month to release instead of several as the current state suggests.

A three Shivan fighter beams trying to take out the enemy fighter. Did you notice there's a UIMS Faker fighter from Galaxian 3 and Star Ixiom? I guess the Shivans are fighting the UIMS after all.

i may be working off outdated documents from the bryan see combined canon here, but i thought the UIMS and shivans were both united under the leadership of hester shaw (after they destroyed the earth along with the cylons)
Is this what you are saying about the UIMS and Shivans are united under the leadership of Hester Shaw?

@Woutersmits, I have already updated it on Dropbox.

Spoiler:

You are right, there are no campaigns. You have to use a Mission Simulator to test them.

Without a default campaign the game can't load a mainhall...

Re: [WIP] Shattered Stars: A Deepness Within Act 0 (DEMO)
Any reason to literally post the entire contents of two (albeit small) files that aren't actually text files so Woutersmits needs to manually make the extensions himself instead of just throwing them into your Dropbox and telling him to redownload them?
