, I got a necro warning when I went to post it there)
Finally got around to playing FS Blue on Insane and am quite excited about the new and improved Slaying Ravana (so so so worth it to anyone who hasn't yet played FS Blue, there's my pitch). However, I had 2 questions about its oft-overshadowed cousin, The Great Hunt:
1) The bug from retail where the SC Asuras is identified as a Lilith in the briefing, despite being a Cain, is repeated. Is this still chalked up to
Lt Samsa never saying the word "Cain"
bad nebular intelligence? Or did inserting a Lilith in lieu of a Cain break the balance of this mission due to lack of Trebs? FWIW, this was the first mission where I ended with 100% hull and all my wingmen alive. The Actium was above 80%, and I didn't fire a shot at either cruiser ("Avoid the beam and you won't get hit, pilot")
2) Isn't monologue 1 supposed to play before mission 6? No such luck using the default BP Complete build currently available on Knossos. Happy to provide logs etc. if needed (for all I know cutscenes may have been removed like ranks, though I didn't see anything to that end...sorry if I missed it).
Lots of love and elbow grease in this campaign, and it shows already. Thanks again guys.
