Sorry but I really can't get over all the meme possibilities for that pilot pic.

Like, the more I look at it the more I laugh my A** off. . :lol:

Yeah, that looks more like a "come hither" look to me. Like Ash is trying to get his girl into the sack for one last lay before he gets kakked by the Shivans. But really, can you blame him?

Something broke with the 4.3.0 upload. You'll need the 4.3.1 upload, which in theory should work fine. But I'm going to bed.

Just downloaded it and OH MY GOD the new Demon and Ravana class are just soooooo delicious and beautiful. I also love the new orion and how the GTA now has a similar look to it through the cruisers to the destroyers.(with the exception of the fenris and leviathan).

On question should the fenris textures be so shiny and reflective compared to the leviathans

if there is any consistancy with the Shivans, it's their lack of consistancy - -Norbert-

Re: Freespace Upgrade 4.3.x Discussion Thread
Actually Fenris got covered with gray paint in this revision, to match the rest. It's the same material I used for pretty much every terran ship, so the Leviathan should be the only ship that really sticks out from the rest.

A Trail bitmap named shivlasertrail is referenced in the mv_effects-wep.tbm. But that file is nowhere in the VPs.

Is one of my releases broken or not working? Please send a PM here or on Twitter, a public tweet @NovachenFS2 or write a reply in my own release threads here on HLP, because these are the only threads i am still participating in.

It's fantastic stuff, I just played some of the big fleet battle missions in the FS2 campaign and it's like a whole new game.

The simple solution without having to convert these files back to ASCII is to add the "$Unicode mode: ON" into the game_settings.tbl mod table.

 
Re: Freespace Upgrade 4.3.x Discussion Thread
I don't know what's going on - the only thing I can run is 3.8. I installed Knossos. I have 3 tabs

Media MVPs 4.3
GOTY mission pack
Retail FS2

if I do an upgrade, I get a 'partially installed' error. Then I wind up getting errors such as "I can't find the selected excecutable! the file ........ fsopen...is missing!"

I can semi-fix it by running KNOSSOS install again. Then one of the three tabs will boot me into FS2 3.8. According to the splash screen.

I notice I have multiple FSopen directories under Knossos/data/bin such as

FSO-3.8.0-3
FSO-19.0.0-RC1
FSO-20.1.0-2020813

sometimes I get a 19.0.0 (no -RC1) and I swear sometimes I get a 20.0.0 but maybe not.

I am totally lost because if I try to upgrade I just get those cannot find excecutable errors.
