As some people were having difficulties with the launcher on its own, I have uploaded the complete Public Beta 4 directory for those of you whom have...
Tiberian Sun: UMP (Unofficial Mini-Patch) is like a base for new mods, it fixes all known (fixable) bugs in Tiberian Sun. The UMP also implements all Firestorm features into Tiberian Sun, so rather than modding Firestorm, you can just mod Tiberian Sun instead. Before starting any Tiberian Sun mod, it is not required, but highly recommended that you begin with installing the UMP.
When modding with the UMP base, you are to edit rules.ini and art.ini, you are not to edit firestrm.ini and artfs.ini, leave those blank as they are in the UMP. They can be used for something else at a later date if you desire.
A bug that has been plaguing Tiberian Sun modders for over a decade has finally been fixed, thanks to CCHyper and his unofficial Tiberian Sun patch, HyperPatch! The bug I am talking about of course is the ORCA TRANSPORT bug, which meant that any human controlled airborn transport would be unable to land properly, making the logic unusable. If you are a Tiberian Sun modder, you will understand why this is such a big deal to us and the modding community; I am very pleased to announce that HyperPatch 0.3 is included in Twisted Insurrection Public Beta 5 and so are fully functional airborne transports!
HyperPatch 0.3 was released just over a week ago and is free for anybody to download over on Project Perfect mod. HyperPatch is also the same patch that fixed the dreaded WaveClass errors a long time ago, it also fixes numerous bugs and improves the performance of the original Tiberian Sun executable! It is a must-have for your mod!
In addition to this very good news, a new track has been composed by Speeder of Mental Omega for the Twisted Insurrection Original Soundtrack. This new track is another more energetic beat to add to the already eclectic soundtrack and is already in-game! Please note however that this track may undergo changes and is not deemed final, however, as this version is currently in-game, we are happy to publish it for you all to check out.
Finally, if you missed the update a few days ago about the first look at Public Beta 5's changelog, here is that direct link once again! We are planning to announce the release date soon and I am very excited about the upcoming release, I have very high hopes about it and we don't think that any of you will be disappointed!
That is all for today. Hopefully you will all see the activity picking up during the next few weeks as I (Aro) now have full access to the internet again (I was without it for a while due-to moving house, slowing our progress), though reality constantly eats away our spare time, we put as much time as we can into this project and I will always try my best to keep you all up to date with the latest news!
