The torrent is getting a lot of traffic as well, saw over 50 people downloading at once at one point.

yeah, I made some advertising on multiple Sci-Fi and Games webpages. Guess FUB and other people did so too.

Last time I logged into ModDB it was on the front page of the mod section so that should help.  Hopefully we'll get some decent multiplayer sessions going.

I need to uninstall the V3.4b I already have?

I don't think there should be an issue to install over your existing 3.4b install.

Re: Post your TBP DVD Questions and Comments here...
I agree uninstall and reinstall is probably for the best.  You can back up your data\players directory and then put it back if you want.  Same for any other stuff that you want to keep.

Re: Post your TBP DVD Questions and Comments here...
I love you guys soooo much right now  :D

My daughter and I just got into B5 6 months ago and have watched all the shows and movies and are now playing A Call To Arms miniatures game.

Just last night I was astonished to find a youtube vid of a B5 game by accident and discovered it was actually a Freespace2 conversion.

The thought of my daughter and I being able to play multiplayer missions in the B5 universe has driven me to build her a gaming computer, take a crash course in open source Freespace, learn how to work with torrents and figure out how to install all the TBP missions... all today!

Then I found the TBP DVD so I set it to d/l and ran off to pick up a dvd burner with lightspeed so we can have our discs labelled. 

I may get some sleep but, bah, why stop now?

Thanks again for all your hard work and attention to detail!

Well after all that you might as well learn to FRED and make some new multiplayer missions.   :D

Excellent Idea!  Then we can do the voice-overs too. Voice acting has always appealed to me as I've been acting the part of various characters since I started DM'ing back in 19... er... (lowers voice in embarrassment) 80.

On second thought maybe I shouldn't. I'm a perfectionist and a completionist with not enough time. :sigh:
The last time I tried writing levels/missions was for Monster Truck Madness and I LIVED it for 4 months straight.
My kids had forgotten who I was by then. "Hey ma... who's that red-eyed guy in pajamas sitting at Dad's computer? I wish he'd stop gibbering gleefully and drooling on Dad's keyboard."

ah... good times.

Add some empty beer bottle to that profile and you'll make a perfect FREDder.

     There I just pimped it up on . . . . four or so websites. Might get some more downloads

 
Re: Post your TBP DVD Questions and Comments here...
Thanks for all the hard work guys.

I have the DVD and like the idea of an install but when I went to print the Disc I found the black inner circle was too big for my Software and since I have no idea how to use photoshop I now have an unsightly black centre circle.
I was wondering if someone could redo TBP Disc Label.jpg so the centre hole is smaller than 22mm so that I will be able to burn full colour discs to give to all my friends here In South Australia.
Thanks for the help.

Almost forgot to say that I downloaded the file from Demonoid and have uploaded 2x and still going constantly at over 500Kbps. If possible I will continue to host this file until the next release.

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

1)How do I install all the B5 Desktop items? The cursors, fonts, icons, sounds, images.

I can add them to the appropriate folders in windows but this doesn't give me a B5 desktop theme option.

2)How do I get OpenAL to work? I ran the OpenAL installer and it gave me the error 'Some OpenAL files were in use--a reboot will be required to complete installation'

I rebooted and ran the installer before doing anything else - same error.

I tried d/l a new copy of the OpenAL installer from the net - same error.

Thanks!
