Vassago's Dirge, an action packed campaign for FreeSpace2 Open, releases on ModDB.
Posted by Axem on Sep 7th, 2010
Two GTI officers interrogate a pilot about his recent experiences, beginning with the awakening and mysterious actions of the destroyer Vassago, passing through NTF experiments with ETAK, and culminating in a daring operation at a derelict under-construction installation. The truth behind it all lies within the seemingly trauma stricken memories of the pilot, whether he likes it or not.
In development since: May 2009
Number of Missions: 9 (6 completely playable, 3 cutscene/playable missions)
Extract the folder to your base FreeSpace2 directory. Peek inside to ensure it looks something like
You should see the VPs and mod.ini in there.
Open up your FreeSpace open launcher, ensure your selected build is 3.6.12 or later. Select Vassago's Dirge as your mod.
Play and enjoy!
This campaign makes heavy use of not-very-loud music. I advise that before starting the campaign, you turn the Music volume to max and Effects to about half or 2/3s. Using builds with 3D sound may make it even harder to hear the music. I'm sorry, there's not much I can do without butchering the music.
It has been my (and some of my Beta Testers) experience that turning on the "Disable Vertical Sync" command flag will cause problems with camera fade in and possibly some of the synchronized music events. Please have that command flag turned off.
If your game appears to have frozen after a fade to white, it hasn't (at least I really really hope not). Just wait for the next level to load.
