Is the first Earth Minbari War mission bugged?
I am trying to do the Earth Minbari war min campaign but for some reason, after the Dublin gets destroyed (i believe that is supposed to happen), nothing else happens. I dont know if the mission is bugged and cannot be completed.

Do you play using Knossos?

If yes, can you please run the mission using the "Fast Debug"-option. You just have start the mission and can close the debug build immediately afterwards. Once you have done that, use the "Upload Debug Log"-option and post the link provided please.

That should provide most of the information required for a perliminary analysis.

EDIT: Following reading your other post, as you are unfamiliar with the franchise:
Spoiler:
The Return to Base-conditions are a bit strange if you are unfamiliar with B5, as it tries -as best as was possible back then- to simulate a B5 style shared jump. You have to close to Yorktown and face towards it before your jump drive is unlocked.

Got it to work. I had to get close to the ship before jumping to hyperspace. I wish the mission had a prompt to do so though.

This is easy to change in the mission files, so which mission is this? I also noticed that in the "Tales of Janus" campaign there is often the objective "Return to base" which actually should be "Use the jump gate", which I could change once I get that campaign to save it's state...

Re: Is the first Earth Minbari War mission bugged?
Directives are bit of special case, as they are limited to 2x64 (?) characters of text; that's why the language codes of directives hasn't really evolved. You can, of course, engineer a kind of tiered directive with careful FREDing (see attachment; that's actually 4 different directives carefully timed to appear in order), but that's very delicate work.

It would proably be simpler to put the exact instructions into a training message and just add that ...
