Babylon 5 - Star Fury Pilot Unofficial Patch 2.0 15.03.2016
------------------------------------------------
Patch copyright by Werner Spahl, "Wesp5" (spahl@cup.uni-muenchen.de)
The Babylon Project home and forum at Babylon.hard-light.net
Thanks to Shaun Williams, "madaboutgames" = "MAG", for the missions!

This is an unofficial patch for the The Babylon Project mission pack
Babylon 5 Star Fury Pilot 2.0 by Shaun Williams. Install it into The
Babylon Project data folder! Thanks to Jordan Russel for Inno Setup.

The patch fixes many minor errors in all missions like typos, names,
hotkey numbers, message subtitles and makes them compatible with the
Zathras mod! It also features mission specific changes listed below.

The Star Fury Pilot pack 2.0, FSO and FRED2 3.7.0, wxlauncher 0.10.1
and OpenAL are included. All else needed is The Babylon Project 3.4b
and Zathras 2.8 (www.moddb.com/games/the-babylon-project/downloads).

Besides optional effects the patch also includes optional changes by
me to the great First Ones mini campaigns Dark Children by Vidmaster
and Guardian of Light by Darkmaster which are both included as well.

Thanks to Heiko Herrman for the inluded viewers and FUBAR-BDHR, both
helped making weapon effects look closer to the show. To restore the
TBP effects remove the effects folder and wesp5-wep.tbm from tables!

Patch Permission:
-----------------
Email to Shaun Williams 29.9.2010: ... I noticed some typos and
bugs though and being aware that the pack is very old I want to
ask for the permission to fix them for the next TBP DVD release.
Email from Shaun Williams 05.10.2010: It will be fine to update
the star fury pilot mission pack and the earth brakiri war if
you can spare the time. I am really busy and will be for the next
year so I am afraid I can not do any further work on this.

The patch fixes a lot of issues with MAG's Star Fury mission pack and two First Ones campaigns, especially if you use Zathras and newer FS2 builds. Besides TBP and Zathras you'll need the missions themselves, all of which you can get here: Babylon.hard-light.net
