Had a further look at New Horizons on @ChezJfrey 's Maelstrom 2.8.2 engine. A short spin through the opening few scenes raises a few issues The random voice animations are missing - system log shows an extra \ in the reported problem path name Code: Can't find cache for sound !!!!RESOURCE\sounds\\VOICE\English\Dut_m_a_031.wav The officer ability interface screen doesn't appear when you try and see their qualities prior to hiring error.log shows Code: COMPILE ERROR - file: interface\officer.c; line: 44 Duplicate variable name: PChar Some characters (like Nathaniel Hawk) have portraits but many (like Julian Mcallister - freeplay default, either Ardent) do not. There is a further log in system.log Code: Can't load texture1 RESOURCE\textures\face_558.tga.tx or other similar for other faces which may relate to this? I don't know which, if any, of these relate directly to the compile of the engine which @ChezJfrey may take a further look at and which are the sort of "remaining issues" in the front end scripts left for New Horizon modders to resolve to work in 2.8.
