What do you think about DXX-Rebirth
(11-11-2017, 09:21 PM)Kp Wrote: On reading the code, Descent 2 supports this as-is, but only if EMULATING_D1 is true.  This is true when reading a D1 mission, and false when reading a D2 mission.  The briefing parser is a mess, but in principle it shouldn't be that hard to modify it so that a D2 mission can use a new directive to use this one D1 feature, while leaving everything else in D2 mode.  With a bit of care, it would probably be possible to have the new directive skip over a nearby movie directive, if you wanted to be able to use a legacy robot-movie when the new feature is not understood.  As I understand your use case, there's no need for that, since your problem is that there are no acceptable movies, so you need access to a game-generated polymodel.  A basic implementation of the new directive would mean that users who run an unaware build would simply get no robot of any kind (but would still get the briefing text).  Would that be sufficient for your use?

Well like I said, since I don't imagine anyone choosing to play this mission on vanilla, I don't think there would even be a need to do this. But if you could get the robot models in Rebirth, then text only for vanilla in DOSBox is certainly better than a crash of the application, amirite?


Quote:Could you link to a sample mission that ought to have one of these new robot briefings?  It would ease my testing of the new directive if I had a briefing that is complete (other than using the new directive).  In particular, having the briefing file already unpacked so I can add the new directive would be convenient.
No briefings at this time, unfortunately. Those will be done in the final phases of this particular mission. Not sure how I could help you here Sad  Couldn't you hypothetically work off some pre-existing mission with a briefing, just throwing in a slide meant for the robot? No existing mission for D2 has briefing slides of this particular type due to the incompatibility, as far as I know.
I'm Xfing from Descent BB.net.

D1,5 in progress. Drop by here to find out more.
