Nothing as in Freespace itself, no ne of the .exe's (standard build SSE, or SSE2) will work on the launcher, no thing all I get is the busy circle that Vista has then it all just seems like I never clicked anything. Doesn't matter where I put the launcher either, I tried it from the Freespace folder, the desktop , hell I even placed it in its own folder in the "c" drive.
My retail FS and FS2 work fine, I'm thinking I need to redownload everything for 3.6.10
Ok, what's the path of your FreeSpace2 executable?
If you open Windows Explorer and navigate to the FreeSpace2 executable file, the path should be visible - something like "C:\Games\FreeSpace2" or My Computer > Local Disk(C:) > Games > FreeSpace2
- Note that FS2 Open should *not* be placed in Program Files or Program Files (x86), and it is critical that it is not placed in a 'virtual' folder like My Documents or the Desktop as that will
cause it to crash.
Secondly, the only parts of Retail FreeSpace2 that are actually required are the VPs (root_fs2.vp etc) and folder structure - the reason for needing a retail FS2 is licensing of the FreeSpace2 content - :V: spent a lot of time and energy developing that content and deserve to be paid for it.
(I just move these around when I get a new PC. Saves wear on the game disks)
Mods, can this conversation be booted over to the Support board? Should have been moved ages ago really.
