Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Thanks for the info.

Can you check if your anti-virus program is preventing FSO from running? If it is can you set an exception for the executable below?

Also; can you navigate to this folder with Windows Explorer and run this program?
Code: [Select]
C:\Games\FreespaceOpen\bin\fso-wod-17.0.0\Fs2_open_Wings_of_Dawn-EX17-SSE2.exe
Creating a fs2_open.log | Red Alert Bug = Hex Edit | MediaVPs 2014: Bigger HUD gauges | 32bit libs for 64bit Ubuntu

Debian Packages (testing/unstable): Freespace2 | wxLauncher

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
I talked ngld on the discord and apparently fs did not want to open because the last time I played I had a joystick plugged in and when I tried to launch it recently I did not.  Thanks for taking the time to respond but it seems to be all good now. :yes2:

Re: Reviews and Feedback thread Episode 1 & 2
I failed the race thing twice, then on the third try did it with 20 seconds to spare, and it told me i failed  :blah:

e: The debrief said I succeeded at the race, if that helps any with debugerino, but I didn't get any credits and the minigame thing itself said I failed.

Aye, that's a known bug that slipped through. Hopefully fixed next time!

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Just finished it. Phenomenal work, Spoon! I enjoyed it from start to finish! I really enjoyed the changes and additions to the first episode, and how you've been redoing the original story, particularly in regard to the various alien races. Liking the little hints/teases about stuff to expect in episode 3. :P Great mission design, and the last set of missions were particularly awesome; way to end a campaign on a strong note.

I got a question, what's that music that plays during many of the major battles? Most recently, on mission 25.
Thanks, good to haer :)

The OST is 90% from Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon (Horizon in the middle of nowhere), including the tracks played during mission 25.

Damn Zeri. <3
She's a big meanie, she won't love you back!

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
I told myself for quite a long time that I will dust off the old FS2 installation when this comes out. Well, the time has come and it seems I'm really out of date. Like what is this Knossos thingy? :nervous:

That alone is more than enough reason to play it. Who cares if I loose every mission cause I can't play anymore, as long as the music runs its fine...
Here goes scripting and copy paste coding

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
No dusting off is required, you can just install WoD dust free, since it's a standalone release  :p
Knossos is a really handy launcher which will make installing any kind of mod/campaign/fs2 based game really easy.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Hmmm, can't play because there's no text (lousy AMD cards!) and can't use the debugs because of
Code: [Select]
Warning: Weapon ExtendLifeF spawns itself.  Infinite recursion?

File: weapons.cpp
Line: 2867

But I've waiting for this for a long time. I will play it.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
You can savely ignore that debug text by hitting continue. It's a mostly pointless message.

Alas, doing that will make the message appear again. Infinitely.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Update: after doing some dark magicks (moving certain contents from the WoD builds folder to the normal WoD folder and setting the DEBUG build to "Run as Administrator") I've gotten the texts back. Wings of Dawn, here I go!
"A weapon is only as powerful as its wielder. With this weapon, you'll be but an annoyance, which would greatly dishonor it. With this weapon, I can change history. With me, this weapon can shape the universe."

 
Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Hmm...

So the race bug, I assume that when you say first try I assume you mean first try since starting the mission? Does restarting the whole mission/game allow you to try again?

If so it also seems that getting within 10 seconds of the cutoff time (2:37:XX) also doesn't count as a victory either.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Patch that fixes the issue with the race timer.

Turned out our initial assumption about it bugging out on a retry wasn't entirely correct. It was instead a matter of the race merely checking to see if the player made it in under 150 seconds, with no regard for what difficulty the player was on. Should be fixed with the above patch. Just drop it into your WoD installation and overwrite.

Unfortunately, not using a Debug build is not an option. as the regular builds don't render the text and seem to do quite wonky things with the camera.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 & 2
Can you take this fonts.tbl and put it your /data/tables/ directory to override the one in the vps? It basically makes all the TTF fonts back into VF ones, so they won't be as nice but hopefully it'll work for you.

Great success! Texts are back.

EDIT: the missions, however, are gone. Every mission now loads a ghost where the player should be, no HUD of any kind and the words "top view" on the top of the screen. It is as if it was stuck in cutscene mode.
