It should be working now actually. The issue that broke the link has been fixed earlier today.

Well it no longer 404s, instead we get a "Forbidden" message now.

EDIT: Scratch that. Only the link in my sig isn't working, since directory browsing is disabled. But the link in the very first post here is working.

You need a Mac OSX binary. Either compile yourself fromt the 3.6.7 source or you might find a binary in the "Cross platform development" subforum. AFAIK the current CVS isn't working on OSX, but ask Taylor for more details.

But I'll soon know more, since I just got my hands on a new MacBook and I want to test TBP on it.

Hello everyone.

I'd like to try this mod out. I can't find any non-windows downloads ( != *.exe), and the link on this thread's
original post gives me HTTP/404.

Where can I get data files/missions etc. in a format that can be used in Linux
     (ie. not contained in a self-extracting windows .exe)?

Thanks a lot.

I'm currently looking for alternative hosting options for the Linux package. I'll post here when it's available.

Btw, are multi-part RARs feasable for Linux users ? I'm not sure offhand if the Linux tools can handle them.

EDIT: Forget the RARs. I've made new seperate tar.gz files for the base install and the 2 campaigns, uploading them now (this might take a while). I'll update the first post with the new links tomorrow.

Thanks for uploading those.
However I get problems.

I've used the binary you provided, and it errored out when loading aurora.ibx

I've got fs2_open 3.6.7 from cvs so I'll compile that soon and try it with that binary.
Seems to me that the files you uploaded are corrupt. Or maybe my download got corrupt.
Only EMW2_0.tar.gz extracts without problems.
Can you please reply with your md5sums for those files so I can see if I got anything corrupted?

Thanks.

You're right, two files seem to have been corrupted during the upload.

I've added the md5 checksums to the first post. That won't help you just right now, since I first have to reupload the corrupted files, then donwload them to check their integrity.

I'll notify you here when I'm sure the uploaded files are intact.

I'm pretty sure the runtime error is caused by the corrupt game data.

Ok, it seems the problem was that mydatabus always corrupts tar.gz files. So I packed them into zip files.

All links in the first post have been updated with working links to intact files. Note that the md5 sums refer to the zip files, not the tar.gz files in them.

Sure. While FRED is Windows-only , the created mission files are platform-independent.

Hey,

If anybody who has a MAC can try this and see if they work, that would be great!

If this mission does work on a MAC, can somebody pls tell me what I have to do to make it work on a MAC?

There is nothing platform specific about missions, so if it works on any platform it will work on all platforms.

And what do you mena that it doesn't work?  Does the mission not load, not show up in the simroom, crash, give an error message ... what?

 
it doesnt show up, at all
