Here we go again...

News 2 comments

Just in time for the awards (although that turned out to be a coincidence), we have a new campaign for you to download. Exactly, CONTENT!!! "The Relic" is a 4 mission campaign made by HLP User Slasher and does not only feature innovative mission design but is already fully voice-acted! I love our community :-)
What are you waiting for?
You can get it in our forum or right here, so download it NOW!
(and the Zathras package too, if you have not already. Check the previous news for info about that, since it is required for this campaign.)
Have fun and don't forget to leave some feedback in the forum, as well as voting for TBP.

Let's take a quick look back: 09 has been good for TBP, let's hope 2010 will be another great time for our favorite game. The next big project for the team is still DVD 2.0, since the old release is somewhat outdated by now. No release date yet, we will keep you informed as usual. And who knows what else awaits us?
Anyway...

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
Or as the German say (translated), "I wish you a Happy Slide."

Interpret that any way you want to :-)

A wonderful game! But I met a problem. I've started playing from the Awakening of the Beast. After I played some missions the game started to crash after I load my pilot profile. So I had to delete my pilot and to create another one with the same name. Since that moment the mouse viewing control doesn't work. I checked the options menu and the mouse is set ON, but it doesn't work. What is to do with this?

To play this TBP relic mod. I understand how to install the zathras patch to run it as a mod, but I do not understand about how to run with FS2_Open 3.6.12. and where to put those files. As these are required also.

Figured it out if anyone gets stuck like me maybe this help;

Run CPU-z (freeware) to check Intructions SEE 1,2,3. ( relates to FS2 open builds you will need to download)

Goto Misc Folder and extract launcher55g into;
C:\Program Files\The Babylon Project
Overwright old launcher

Extract FS2 open builds into;
C:\Program Files\The Babylon Project
(activate from new launcher select correct EXE)

Extract Zathras into;
C:\Program Files\The Babylon Project
(activate mod from new launcher)

Extract New Mods such as Relic into;
C:\Program Files\The Babylon Project

There is but unfortunately I'm not exactly sure how myself. The installer is windows only. Someone did a linux distro as well but as far as OSX the only solution I know is to install to a windows machine, copy over, and download or compile the OSX builds of FS2_Open.

Since most of the development is now done by the public it's hard to post updates. There are some models and campaigns being worked on along with the standard bug fixing. Best thing to do is follow on the HLP forum.
