Works great so far! I just downloaded both files and stuck the Mac app in the Babylon Project directory. Bravo! Good work.

One weird thing though - bizarrely, the reflection map or whatever you call it of one cruiser in the main campaign was the replaced with an image of the Safari window showing this thread I had open! I dont really understand how it could happen, except that maybe that window (which I closed quite a while before I started playing) was cached in VRAM on my graphics card and FSOpen wanted a texture in the same location in VRAM, but failed to overwrite the old one (or was getting textures from the wrong location in VRAM). :confused:

The ridiculous thing is that it was a page pertaining to the babylon project  - not one of the OTHER 150 windows i had opened that day!  :D

But you will definitely see it in the attached screenshots if you look closely:

If we had a bug of the month award, I think that could win it.  Never seen that before.

That is in fact one of the more awesome bugs we've seen so far :yes:

EDIT...Until then your only option is to copy an installed TBP3.4b folder from a Windows machine and use a recent binary from the SCP forum.
I'm a linux newb but using it more'n'more; my dual boot of windows is basically a harddrive-eating security blanket now. However it'd be easy enough to install TBP on windows and copy it over; how do I do the second part?

Thanks in advance,

GEF

PS: I'm using openSuSE 11.0 if that makes a difference.

I dont' know much about Suse, but you need to be able to read a NTFS file system from your Linux install.  You would just mount the windows partition you installed TBP to with something like 'mount -t ntfs /dev/sdX /mnt/windows' (don't take that as the exact string, I'm winging it here).  Then you would just copy it over like normal, either via your GUI file browser or command line.

Thanks Chief, but that's the part I've got - SuSE has NTFS support by default. The troublesome bit is how to install and use FS2 with TBP...on the windows install directions were very clear about keeping them seperate. -GEF

Uh. Would it work if you installed TBP somewhere on Windows side, copied it to the Linux side (indeed do not mix it with any possible FreeSpace installations) and then acquired a Linux build (probably 3.6.9 since we're talking about TBP) behind the Latest builds for Linux and Mac link in my signature?

you can drag and drop your freespace folder from windowsto linux , it needs to go in your home folder , then follow setting up the launcher.ini files etc , there exists another possibility that works on ubuntu and windows.... i have mine on a eternal 2.5" hard drive first i open my launcher in the hard drive folder and try to run , it usualy gives a you need to run binary in its folder or something like this , i then copy the launcher to my desktop run that (both times after trying to select the freespace .exe file) it refusesagain then i returnto my hard drive launcher and then it works......... voila

well,
just doing it the simple way (copying TBP into my home directory and then running the fs2_open_3.6.9.run worked very well for me:
I can now start TBP and it works!
I have only one problem right now:
How can I use my joystick? it's calibrated using  jscalibrator, but I cannot use it ingame. Is there any way to set up that joystick?
Thanks,
Nordwin

€ðit: Problem halfway solved. My joystick works almost ok (that means, as bad as it did under windows).. it's only that it isn't calibrated correctly (for example, when pointing it to the right, it only moves the ship very VERY slowly to the right. And without almost max sensitivity, it doesn't do anything at all)..
so I got to get a new one, or painfully calibrate it by hand o_O (getting a new one sounds smarter, since this one sucks even IF it is set up correctly :D )

€ðit²: Now it all works! With the new joystick (my brohter's, he doesn't need it) I am using, TBP is A LOT more fun than before!

Got a crash here on mac -

So I get to the mission where you attack the Depot and blow up all the raiders' cargo pods and sentry guns, but, without fail, as soon as I blow up a sentry gun, it crashes to the desktop. I've attached the crashlog.

Using Babylon project 3.6.10 SP on MacOSX 10.5.6

Thanks!

Can you run the debug build and attach the fs2_open.log from the data directory.  Also if your using 3.6.10 try the latest build.  There have been quite a few bugs swatted recently. 

You will probably want to add -no_warn to the custom flags or you'll get a lot of warnings.

where can I get the debug build / latest builds for mac? I can't find a debug build in my installation. I found something promising in Tinman's sig, but the link is dead.

Dropping the latest FS2Open build in the Babylon folder seems to sort of work, except I lose my babylon pilot and have to start over - my freespace 2 pilots are there instead.

You didn't copy any settings or anything over did you?  All there should be is the exe.  I'm not familiar with OSX though.  Recent builds can be found here:  http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/board,173.0.html

If you have a testing 3.6.10 build at all, you should have both the regular and debug ones.  The debug has (Debug) in the filename probably, if it's one of my nightly builds.  If you're using the launcher just pick it instead.  Then your log should show up in the Library/FS2_Open/data/ folder I believe.  Don't quote me on that though.

OK - it works with the latest FS2 open build - no crash! Thanks!

I just had to copy my pilot files from the place where the babylon specific build I was using was storing them to the generic freespace 2 pilot folder.

Oh right those exes had to be compiled to use a different path.  I totally forgot about that.
