Re: 3.6.10 Final Now Available!
Hi everyone...

I have recently bought Freespace 2 from GoG abd dowloaded everything here as you say. Same for the openall and everything.

But I have a very stupid problem: once all is downloaded and installed...how I activate it, how do I use the modding and can play the new missions ?

Okay, if you have really downloaded it all, unpacked it, and put it in the right place  according to the installation instructions, you should have everything you need. You just need to start the FS2Open Launcher, click on the browse button to select a fs2open executable, make any settings required in the Launcher, and hit the Launch button.

Re: 3.6.10 Final Now Available!
Click on the Launcher.EXE file in /FreeSpace2. Click on the "Browse" button at the top and select fs2_open_3_6_10.exe. Read the link in my sig on how to make FSO pretty, and then play.

Have fun and welcome to the community!

Re: 3.6.10 Final Now Available!
I'm getting a lot of game crashes during loading between missions.

is their a fix or feature that should be disabled...... it will be loading the next mission and suddenly I see the windows desktop cursor instead of the custom Freespace one.

then it notify's me the game has had an issue and has to be shut down.

it's so bad now that I can't load in any additional missions.

happened just after the Ravana introduction mission.... the next one would likely have been the one where I had to fly a bomber and destroy it.

I've also had a crash while customising my ship and wingmates ships but I've always had some trouble if I spent too much time doing it and if you do it fast enough it doesn't repeat.

the OS is fully patched Vista 64 premium I've tried compatibility and the result is the same, if I change the launcher to no mods the game loads fine.

my system is an Intel C2D, on an Asus P5q motherboard, 4 gb's of G-skill, a 3870 512mb video card, integrated sound, 3 LG DVDrw's, 80gb raptro and a 470 PC power and cooling psu.

Re: 3.6.10 Final Now Available!
Select a debug build in the Launcher (named fs2_open_3_6_10d.exe), run it with mediavps enabled, and even if it doesn't crash, post the fs2_open.log from the data folder here (or better, in the support forum).

once I completed the mission going unmodded I've been able to relaunch the game modded in following missions.

I'll try and replay the mission and see if something odd happens.

That's not a crash, it's a hang.  Learn the difference, because those two problems are very different.

Your problem might be caused by loading a ship or model that takes a long time to process.  If that's the case, you need to just be patient and wait.  Force-quitting the FreeSpace process is only going to make it worse.

The model will only take a long time to load the first time it's loaded.  On subsequent loads it will load at regular speed.

Re: 3.6.10 Final Now Available!
Goob, it can be a bit difficult for a new user to tell the difference between the two, considering it's even popping up a crash-like dialog box.  But he's right, if you let it continue what it's doing it will probably finish and continue on.

Re: 3.6.10 Final Now Available!
Hey all,

I'm updating my FS2 install. Is the sdr1119.vp still needed?

Cheers and (a late) happy new year to all.

No, the shaders included in that one are part of the mediavps now.

Re: 3.6.10 Final Now Available!
Um...where would you get that idea?  And perhaps more pressingly, why/how did you dig this thread up?  This is the previous official SCP release, from a solid two years ago.  The fact that it hasn't been posted in for 18 months should have provided a bit of a clue that any info in it is very much out-of-date.  3.6.12 is the most recent official release (3.6.14 is apparently about to start the release process), so until you hear otherwise, that's what you should be using.

Re: 3.6.10 Final Now Available!
oh woops. sry. so use the Inferno build. I thought I saw in the thread you shouldn't. but i guess it's hard to argue with 2 years old. I'm just BARELY starting to trying applying the mods myself, so I'm just asking questions to figure it out.

Inferno Builds are the only type that are released now, you don't have much choice in that regard anymore.
