Re: Post your TBP DVD Questions and Comments here...
First off I am NOT using Vista, I have XP pro SP3.  Unfortunaly the game doesn't get far enough to create a fs2_open.log...  There might be a posiblity that the video card I have doesn't support OpenGL, thus I'm hosed...  :snipe: and unfortunalty too much has changed for me to "reverse port" the files back into retail FS2  :headz:
I've been part of the FS2 Comunity before but have been out of touch these last years and want to get back in the cockpit.

Re: RELEASE: The Babylon Project DVD v1.0
OK, I've got a question. Why the hell would you include an installer for an unsupported API? The Source Code Project is no longer developing FS2 Open for DirectX and hasn't been for somewhere around a year or so now. OpenGL is the only fully supported API.

Cause some people can't use OpenGL and it doesn't hurt to have an emergency backup as long as it's clearly labelled as such and isn't installed by default.

You could if you extracted a load of files and made a custom 3>4 ship add-on mod for FS2 SCP ;)

 
Re: Post your TBP DVD Questions and Comments here...

Re: Post your TBP DVD Questions and Comments here...
Download.com is currently experiencing database problems from an upgrade.  TBP got botched on their site.  The file is missing and the download link is pointing to the forum.  Basically the whole TBP entry is screwed.  I've got a support ticket open on it.  You can get it from ModDB it's just 2 files instead of 1.

Download.com link is back up.  They must have know I was headed there to file another trouble ticket. 

Anyway current download total just  between download.com and ModDB is now over 5500.

Is there an aggregate figure for total downloads thus far?  ~5,000 seems low, even if it has been a few years since the mod was really in the spotlight.

Have no way of knowing how many have downloaded from the other sites or torrents. 

Just looked at FreeSpaceMods.net.  There are over 1000 more downloads of the installer and Mac/Linux build.

We need to have an online chat about our joint campaign. It ticks most of those boxes but I need some help tying up the plot threads in a coherent way.

This is working great for me with Vista, thanks so much for putting it all in one convenient DVD, it's been a blast so far from the little i've played it.

Just out of interest which one is the main Babylon Project campaign?  They all looked like short ones and dmeos form what I saw in the list, unless i'm just being blind and haven't paid enough attention.

Earth Minbari War Demo is the first one.  Raider Wars is the second.  After that they are all end user made so take your pick.

The dvd is too big for me to get, maybe that's part of the problem. Actually, v3.4b is still too big. Is there a change log from 3.3a?

Re: Post your TBP DVD Questions and Comments here...
No there isn't.  You have options for different file size downloads from the full DVD down to 100 meg chunks.  I had it broken down into 20 meg chunks but those seem to have been removed from mediafire.
