I'm pretty sure FSO switched to a different directory for storing pilot files, logs and screenshots a while ago

Knossos did, FSO did not. FSO uses a different format for the pilot files for a year now, but they are still stored in the same folders.

Re: What are some in-progress campaigns I should keep my eye on?
I've been running FSO 3.8.0 for a while now, so I don't think my build is terribly outdated? I had no idea YAL was that outdated, though. O_o The reason I was using it was because I recall having some issue with Wxlauncher, but I don't recall what it was. I seem to recall reading it was supposed to come with FSO, but it didn't with mine, so I tried downloading it by itself and installing it, though I may have installed it wrong...I really don't remember what the issue was. It it supposed to install to its own directory outside of the FS2 folder? Because mine did, and I think I had difficulty setting the paths to it or something...

So I poked around and found YAL, dropped it in FS2 folder and found it worked like a charm! :P

Thanks for the tip about Discord, btw! How exactly do I integrate it?

Re: What are some in-progress campaigns I should keep my eye on?
You don't need to do anything yourself - you just need to have "Display currently running game as a status message" setting turned on in Discord, and then just add FSO to the list (you can just choose it from a list of currently working programs). The pain here is that you need to repeat the adding proccess every time you run a different FSO build.

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.

Re: What are some in-progress campaigns I should keep my eye on?
I can't figure out how to get it to work right...I feel dumb. Whenever FSO is running and I am playing a campaign, the program is always labeled as simply "Freespace 2", and displays as such on Discord, both on the "add game" selection list and as what I'm currently playing afterwords.

It's visible if you click on your avatar in any conversation or in the server member list.
You can rename the game you're playing in "Added games" list (just click on the title), i.e. Freespace 2 to Freespace Open.

Just completed the prologue on Exile. For a moment, I was sure I'd finished the campaign, but then I remembered I hadn't actually passed the prologue yet. Now on Act 1: Into the Dark Waters! Really enjoying it so far, is definitely one of those big, high production value campaigns I'm always hoping to see more of! If this is just part 1, then I'm already looking forward to what part 2 is gonna bring to the table.

Act II called The Schism is frozen for now. Our team switched to different projects and real-life matters, but it may be revived one day depending on many factors. I'm glad you like it.

Aside the RL matters, mind detailing that a bit further? Is there some new mystery project in the works or is it like with SG - "Here's Act 1 of 4, Act 2 is coming... soonish..."?

In case said project isn't SG2 :hopping: ;), could there be some sort of Exile 2-4 Oracle then someday?

Nightmare, Nyctaeus told me about the future of SG in a PM to me, but revealing specific contents about PM conversations without permission is improper IMO so I'd suggest you PMing him about it.

Or Nyctaeus, would you like me to say what you told me about SG?

Hey, real life matters come first, so it's okay, you guys take your time with it. We can all wait!

I'm really curious too. I won't ask for big details, but can you at least confirm whether or not SG2 is still coming or not? I really enjoyed the first one, it's one of my favorite campaigns, and I'd love to see that story continue.

I was a Gamma tester for Exile Act 1.  If you want there to be more of a chance of seeing Exile 2 and 3 someday, volunteer to be a tester for Exile.  I'm sure Nyctaeus would appreciate the help.

Gamma tester

What's that?

I don't know if it's an official term, it's just what Nyctaeus called it.  Basically what he gave me to test he felt was ready to release as is...but he just wanted someone to take one last look at it.
