Can BPC/FS2 Blue be played with the new Media VPs?
I'm going to play Freespace 2 Blue (a campaign included in the Blue Planet Complete package) again soon probably.  Is it playable with the new 3.8 Media VPs?  I.e., can I switch "mediavps_2014" to "MediaVPs_38X" in the BPC folder mod.ini?

No idea. Give it a try.

From my experience of actually doing it there's nothing obviously broken but it hasn't been thoroughly tested so YMMV.

I played a few missions of it so far (first three training missions plus the 'Belesarius' mission).  I didn't notice any major gamebreaking errors, but I did see one error on one of the command briefing screens:  the picture with Bosch and all his crimes in the background was smaller than the other CB images in that set and the text was blurrier (i.e., I couldn't see "Didn't blame Axem").  The other CB images looked fine.


I switched back to MediaVPs 2014 and that Bosch image went back to having readable text and the Axem line was there.

Never mind, I figured it out.  I just realized the MediaVPs were updated to 3.8.2 and I downloaded the CB ANI 1 file which fixed the issue (I don't use Knossos yet).

I'm playing on the 3.8 MediaVPs and ran into a minor problem on the first mission in the nebula (where you find the Trinity):

Command says the line "You will be informed on a need to know basis" before one of the pilots asks "Command, what are the rebels doing out here?".  It looks like the order got slightly mixed up.

I can't remember if this happened while playing on the 2014 VPs.

I encountered a gamnebreaking error playing this on 3.8 MediaVPs:

On the mission "Into The Malestrom" (escorting the Colossus convoy), after the Malestrom is destroyed and the convoy reaches the node the Colossus is supposed to jump in but it never did.

I switched the mod.ini back to "MediaVPs_2014" and the mission played fine.
