We talked briefly on HLP about otehr things, but I was curious as to what kinds of voice acting you had going, and if you had an email address i could send a smaple to you IF you needed another person (I don't do accents though or multiple voices, last time I tried it turned out really crappy!) I do one role only... ;)
  l8tr!
 
 BTW I messaged Matt asking about seperate project avatars so hopefuly we won't have to sacrifice our unique individual avatars for generic project ones. (but that might not be possbile, have to wait and see)...
 
 [EDIT] God I'm an idot! I see you have Yahoo... Just yell at me sometime and we'll get into voice chat...  To other people, if you have a microphone and you want to have/help projects that have voice acting GET YAHOO CHAT! It is great for co-ordinating projects as well as hearing what people sound like and testing scripts before going through a lot of bother making files and sending them as all our RL priorities dictate our limited times of modding freedom.. he he...

That's okay, you can keep your avvy. My email is naboo_2@hotmail.com I have GMail but it's really screwy. What I'm looking for right now is a voice actor to do the briefings.

Open YM, I've sent an IM.

The avatar that I wanted every member to have: I need someone to make that into a squad logo. And could someone tell me how to make a vp? Once I get another mission finished, I'll release a demo.

[EDIT] Gloriano, stop being so ****ing negative. Ya wanna join, or are you gonna complain? You're from HLP, right? Goes by the name of Holy Imperial Gloriano or something like that?

Post by: Axem on December 16, 2004, 02:39:59 AM
Probably the easiest way to do that is download this:

http://alliance.sourceforge.net/files/Software/AllProFS2Kit.exe

It has a bunch of FS2 related apps. It's a bit old though (March 2002). It includes Mission Background Utility, Package Manager (an older MOD selector), an ancient version of Pof Constructor Suite, and probably what you are looking for, VP Builder. Just add the files, then select where they go. Then go Build VP.

There's also a command line version out there that's a bit faster to use, but I don't have a link ready to that. There was a thread at HLP around a month ago on a new version.

As for your squad logo, just get the pic, make it a 128x128 8-bit PCX file, then throw it in data/players/squads and select it in FRED. Pure green won't show up, so use that as a mask.

Post by: Axem on December 16, 2004, 02:54:52 AM
Save it as a non-lossless file (bmp or gif, never as a jpeg), download Irfanview (http://www.irfanview.com/), and convert it with that.
Title: Poof
Post by: Cobra on December 16, 2004, 03:05:26 AM
I downloaded it once, but it was screwed. I downloaded it again, and it works. Trial VP finished, and once Mission 2 of Pathways is finished, I'll release a demo.

You wanna be a part of a campaign where nothing is what it seems? (Join Pathways?)

Mission Review 7/10

I downloaded your mission last night and finished it this morning.I played thru it, and found that it has good design and Freding work.But, the messages are kinda wierd, like when the pirates jump in the police dude says"Turn off engines and pepare to be borded". Just stick whith the Surrender or become space dust aproach.Found one error tho, when the Hip gets to the end of it's waypoints it turns around goes out of the node and warps.With a little more work it could become a very good mission. :nod:

That's weird, it never did that with me before... I needed to make some changes, that could be it... Oh yeah, did you download everything you needed?

Willy_Principal: Well, I can't send you voice files because it takes so DAMN long to upload it to the email. GMail's screwy, so I can't yet.

You sir, need to learn to use FTP. Its not my server thats the problem because this server and its connection is better than most people's home computer.
 
 1.76 GHz 2500+ AMD Sempron
 333 FSB
 512 DDR RAM PC3200
 200 GIGs of space
 Broadband connection (5 mb download/3 mb upload)
 
 Its just that you dont usually upload large files for FTP. I am posting some instructions on how to do it in your internal. Please read them as I think you will find that uploading and sharing files FTP is a lot easier. :)

I just checked the mission - it only gives a debriefing if you scan Gunner. The debriefing itself is fine, but there isn't any directive to scan Gunner or even a message telling you to. And I'd like to join, but at the moment I just have too many other projects I'm working on. Maybe when some of them are finished.

Really? I wish I could see sounds.

Seriously though, that voice acting is distressing. Especially the accent. There's almost no emphasis or enthusiasm in the words, and it sounds closer to whispering than talking.

When you do Command's lines, name them PCommand1, PCommand2, PCommand3, and PCommand4.

Lines: (Briefing)

1. Welcome to patrol duty. Don't expect much action here, we haven't had many attacks.

2. However, we there have been reports of a pirate uprising. Just stay alert. Dismissed.

Lines: (In-Flight)

1. More pirate fighters are jumping in. Pilots, protect the convoy!
2. Pilots, we need a scan of that cruiser.
3. Good job Alpha 1. Clear out the rest of the pirates and we'll take a look at your sensor logs.
4. Alpha Wing, return to base.

You wanna do Command Briefings? Or I could do them.

Man that's brutal, I just playedit like 6 times. I figuredout what I needed to rename the ship to...
 
 Anyway my suggestion is that in the briefing some minor changes... After the intro have the admiral say, "Since you were recommended by Admiral Petrarch you must have passed your academy training with flying colors, Impressive!"
 
 Also later on
 
 "So far these sudden attacks have been restriced to GTVA supply convoys ,for now, we have had no reports of attacks against Civillian or other Military targets."
 
 (at this point the CO can express an opinion but to come out and say they MUST be so and so faction is not so good. try this...
 
 "In my opinion these pirates are some rogue faction of the GTVA that must be brought under heel. Of course any information we uncover about these pirates will be forwarded to GTVI."
 
 just my take on it so far...
 
 [EDIT]  - pick up the slack you guys, all MY lines for mission 1 are done :P
 
 and Weather add a new $6.00 mic to your X-mas list... You should do soem acting your accent isn't that bad so don't hold back. Have fun with it otherwise you shouldn't be forcing yourself...

Ah yes, and now Zylon's laws of FREDer conservation will take effect, and this campaign will flounder... :D

That's why fredder types should ALWAYS run the mod.  Missions are the only thing needed for a good campaign.  :P

Post by: Gloriano on December 26, 2004, 04:38:18 PM

I mean C'mon he should atlest have some skills, (Fredding , modeling) before he start his project. And some leadership skills

No offence If Cobra is still doing this Campaign, but it looks like it's D.E.A.D or about dead.

Learn to FRED. I am right now as a matter of fact. I am trying to repicate my favorite Freespace 2 missions for practice as I have found that works good. Try that Cobra. Once you kind of get the hang of it, its pretty easy.

honestly, i felt i was doing, say...80% of the job here...
and...i already started a campaign before joining up here...i'm also participating in the FRED academy. (also before joining up on Pathways)

BTW. Check out Mission 1 for Campaign 1 (retail). Go here to download:
http://www.geocities.com/willy_principal/fac1m1-willy_principal.zip

It's a zipped VP file with everything you need to play the mission: tables, sounds, maps, models, interfase icons, and the mission itself...
...ENJOY!

Thanks Hammer, us texans gotta stick together.  One of these days i am gunna put together the "Power fred" team and make Mercenaries.

Dammit when did this happen, i developed a conscience.  Cobra lost his only fredder.  Yeah Cobra needs to get some skills as well, but in the end....another campaign fails.  

The number of campaigns failing vs the number that get completed is staggering.  Look at this last year....we had 2 big ones fail and die.  and there are more about to lose it in the culling.  I hate the thought of losing them.  I agree that right now what we don't need is more campaigns to steal our talent away from where it is....but at the same time....well you know what i am trying to say.  

Right now i am trying to work some trade agreements with people...as in I fred some missions for them and they do some work i need done and can't do myself.  Maybe if we could get something organized large scale with something like that, well maybe then we could stop these things from happening.  Just a thought.

i had a 'crush' on this campaign...
because, well...it was the first campaign i ever participated...
but, when i discovered that you have...say...not even the 50% of the plot already made...and that i was doing...say..............80% of the work (some even say 85%)...i decided to place my efforts elsewhere...

Wanna tip?...the plot is the first thing you have to finish...
an idea can come up in your mind in the midst of the campaign and you have to trash a lot of work...
I don't have much experience making campaigns...but a lot trying to start ones...none of them reached the forth mission...because when i began the third one...a new idea came up in my mind and i had to trash all my campaign's work..............
the same thing happened to me in HomeWorlds...i'm not gonna make the same mistake again...i will solely develop the plot...and when it's solid...i'll start the FREDding...

when i make campaigns i kind of make up the plot as i go. when there's red alert missions that's when my story gets solid. this helps me make twists and turns. i build as i go. i made a campaign this same way a couple of years ago for fs1 and it actually turned out pretty well.
