Thanks EoH, you've been really helpful as a tester, though I'm sorry that such was necessary. :)

I was able to replay the 2nd Batman mission tonight and it worked this time!


Spoiler: ShowHide
 So Talia or rather Ras al Ghul is behind this, interesting. I will play more this weekend.

Perhaps. ;)

Glad it's working now!

I forgot to add some meshes that I'd done the ghosting fix on to the patch...I'll get to that eventually, but they are in the MiS campaign.

Howdy Amazo, it would be a very good idea to delete the previous installation because I eliminated a lot of overlap and redundancy, as well as making REALLY big changes between here and there.  For example, now all meshes share keyframes, which are stored in a new directory.  If you want to keep those skins, I'd suggest backing all of them up and reinstalling them over the top of a fresh copy of the DCUG.  It might also be a good idea to wait a few days until I can upload a new main download version.

Having not been able to download this yet (lousy dial-up), should I wait for this new version as well? Will there be an installer?

I completed the 3rd Batman mission

Spoiler: ShowHide
 and enjoyed it. The Riddler's crack about the jr partner of the freak show was the best of several funny cut scenes. Robin's quip about PI trying to kill him and then he gets over it was fun as well.

Bad news on Bat5. It keeps crashing to desktop during the mission briefing 4 straight tries. I don't know if the script will help since I never get to start the mission but will post it anyway.

Alright EoB, I'm going to take a shot at troubleshooting this tonight.  Cross your fingers.

:EDIT: Urg...so, I've found the issue, but apparently there are some other problems wrapped up in it, of course.  As soon as I get the energy to re-write a base scene, I'll patch it.

And I found that energy.  I'll be uploading a more polished DCUG with all of the bugs (except the JSA ones) fixed soon.  I'll get around to finishing the JSA campaign....one day.

Alright, I'm uploading the mod now.  It should be available tomorrow.  I'll try and put together a patch for those who have already downloaded it.  I would also really love for someone to volunteer to test the big download and make sure it works.  I know that's a lot to ask, but I would really appreciate it.

The mod packed up is around a gig (a little over), unpacked, right around 3.5.  So, it's big, but it is only half of what it once was.

Great! I have been able to resume the Batman campaign. I don't have much time to play today but did finish the next mission.

 Chasing the Cold. Very enjoyable. Gotta love the classic "destroy the world with giant ray device" plots.

The download works just fine. You'll only need 7-zip to extract it.
I had time only to test some of the characters in the Rumble Room and I have to say Benton made a great job with the hero files, his Bat Squad guys are very fun to play.
The music and custom screens are great too. I'm looking forward to test the JLA campaign.

Ok I tried that again at least 5 times and

Spoiler: ShowHide
 Whenever I actually got to the last guy Robin always missed him. So in extreme frustration I gave up and used the Mission Win cheat to advance.

I was really enjoying the next mission until I tried to sabotage the generator. It doesn't work, the command to sabotage just stays there no matter how many times I try it. I cannot smash the generator either.  :banghead:

Posted my script in that forum.

Gah!  It's always something.  I played through BOTH of these before I re-released for heaven's sake.  I'll give this a look now.

:EDIT: Alright, a quick play through of mission 6 has confirmed that he is too close to the switch.  I'll just move him, and it should be fine.

:EDIT: Well, two easy fixes there, at least.  I'll upload a patch in a little while.  In the meantime, I think I know what the problem is EoB.

Spoiler: ShowHide
Sometimes, sabotage doesn't like certain objects that much, or rather, certain places on certain objects.  Move to the other side of the generator, then try it again.

Thanks EoB!  That was the ending I've always wanted for him, and that was more or less the idea that the entire campaign was built around.  You might see those two show up again one day, though.  However, the immediate future of the Batman campaign has a different star...now I just need to get around to writing the stories....

I'm having a problem with DCUG and I'm hoping someone can help.

I downloaded all the files from Mediafire. I placed each file into a seperate folder and removed the .oo# on the end leaving me with DCUG.zip in each folder. I tried to extract the first .zip file to a folder I named "Merged" [The idea being to extract each file in turn and to then zip up the new file with WinRAR.]

Instead I got an Error Message ....The archive is either in unknown format or damaged

I have no idea what to do! Any suggestions?

Check the readme, Lu.  You need to use a .zip program, in which you select the merge option.  I use 7-Zip.  With that program, you select all of the files at the same time, then simply right click and choose "extract."  It will then combine it into a single .zip file.

SpecterFan,
I only managed to extract the mod using 7zip, so I suggest you try it. Just follow the Read Me instructions and you'll get it.
