Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
Sorry, but after the 3.6.32 update done inside of Knossos I get an error message that the executable is missing, so this still does not work! Checking the folders, I don't find any core vp files as well. Is something going wrong with the update?

Just pick a nightly or RC3.

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
Just pick a nightly or RC3.   

So there are no core vps in this release anymore?

P.S.: Finally got it to work, I just needed to have the FSO button update :)! Maybe TBP could automatically do this or at least suggest to do so instead of giving an error that an exe is missing?
Also good to finally see all my stuff on Knossos. It seems you went the road to not use vps at all, as it looks to me that all data has been extracted! Fine with me, then it will be easier to fix...

Speaking of which, I noticed that an Infestation mission has somehow made it into the single missions. This might be an error in the campaign order, as that mission is never mentioned there!
So how is determined if a mission is a single mission or part of a campaign? How can the campaign be fixed to include that mission again? The name of the misplaces mission is "5 bonus 4.fs2".

P.P.S.: I think I fixed the above issue by editing the campaign file in a way that seems reasonable to me. Somebody would need to test the whole campaign and then upload the fixed file! Or is
there an easy way that I could do that myself using Knossos itself and not falling back to SVN where somebody else would need to move or autorisize the file? I saw some typos to fix as well!

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
Okay, that sounds like something went wrong with the upload. Everything should be in a VP file for people who aren't working in development.

Sounds like we need to bump the required version of FS2_Open as well.

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
Yes Knossos is still having issues with uploading.  I have to re-upload several times and finally got it to work un-packed.  Hopefully the next release will have better luck with Knossos.

Also yes it has been easier for people that are helping fix and improve things to edit and send me their changes.  I am working on the 3.7.0 release that will have a lot of small improvements, some fixes and a couple new campaigns/missions.

Okay, I'll PM you my files once I am ready. Right now I fixed all text errors in MAGs Infestation campaign, maybe I will find time this evening to play it and check the mission order!

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
In order to avoid duplicate work:

I've fixed the skybox reference is Earth-Minbari War Demo and Relic, as well as texture-replacements on the Novas and Omegas.

I am going to have a look at the scan distance of EA Freighter 1 & 2 (it seems kind iffy that they don't seem to be scannable for except from very specifc angles).
I am also taking on the Aurora (tabled thrusters look to off their locations on the model) as well as bringing the Mk 1- and Psi-variants in line with standard Aurora-model wise. (I have the maps, just need run them through the engine really quick).

Same here, I went over MAGs Infestation and Survivor campaigns fixing text issues as he certainly is not a native speaker or makes a lot of typos ;)! Speaking of text, I also improved some campaign names and can we please change "Continue" on the main screen to "Play Campaign" and "Campaign" to "Select Campaign" to make their usage clearer?

 
Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
Feel free to send me any changes.  Discord would be the preferred place. I will add them to 3.7.0 build that I am working on. I have spent hours fixing names, ect.  We will be getting a couple new campaigns.

 
Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
It is good to see activity with TBP.  Release 3.7.0 is coming along with a lot of small bug fixes, enhancements and a whole lot more content that has been updated.

Is there any of you FREDers that might want to create any new missions or campaigns?

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
I have two common suggestions I would like to see in 3.7.0, but which I don't know how to tackle:

1) Can we please change the main screen "Continue" button to "Play Campaign", and the "Campaign" button to "Select Campaign"? Right now this is rather confusing for all new players.

2) Can we please make HUD strings using capitals? It's looking really stupid in combination with mission updates and similar where they are used! Like "directives", "weapons", and so on.

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
Love to see thing are moving arround here  :)
All this inspired me to do the Sigma Walker from the stratch (still WIP), compatible and optimized for TBP.
I need anybody to help me do the proper hardpoints and tables.

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
Amazing work :eek:
Did you completely scrap the old model? It wasn't what I'd call "underdetailed"...

One side thing- wasn't that one of the things you already upgraded and converted?

The old model  had some serius problems: geometry holes, and in game, TBP showed some warning or error message when start the game (i can't remember wich one but it had to do with geometry).
And it was really poly heavy, it caused some FPS drops, and all the textures were still.
I have some new ideas for this one ;)

thanks for the compliments as always :)

I see you are taking the walking-theme very seriously.

We'll have to wait until the Walker of Sigma is in game  :)

All that bones were the original idea of the "walker" thing. Very abstract  :lol:
