Re: Hello everyone i am new here and i just have a urgent question
Have you following the manual install guide for your OS? They're linked on the top nav bar under "Installing FreeSpace Open".

If you're on Windows, BP:WiH shouldn't be hard to install if you use its Complete Installer.  Unfortunately for nearly everything else, it's manual steps all the way.  The current "FSO Installer" in broken and the replacement hasn't been finished yet.

For War in Heaven just download the complete installer, run it, and use the launcher to select blueplanet2 as your mod.

Hello everione my hair is beccoming white in trying this please help
Hello everyone my hair is becoming white from so many times trying to add the other extras to freespace 2. I am trying to add Silent threat/Reborn,The Blue planet,and Pandora's box.I tried the Turrey's Freespace automatic installer but all i get is 30-40 only text files. in 2 seconds.Is ridiculous and nerve wrecking.I manually downloaded the Blue Planet: and is installing to freespace directory as a folder named freespace2 but when i start the game is not working as i do not see the blue planet in the campaign room.I live upstate NY,does anyone live close by here in Plattsburgh? I would stop to your place if someone can show me step by step how to do this.In in unstalling games i never saw anything so hard in my life.Why they made it so hard? Can aomeone tell me step by step how to do this?Thanks everyone for answering me

Go to 'mod', select blueplanet or blueplanet2 folder.

Make sure you have the Blue Planet executable that came with the Blue Planet installer. Stick it in your main FreeSpace 2 folder if it's not there already, make sure you have it selected as the executable in your launcher.

Re: Hello everyone i am new here and i just have a urgent question
Please stay calm and follow this guide: http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=78710.0

Do note that we cannot teach you the basic computer handling skills you will have to have in order to follow that guide. Unfortunately, the online installer does not work at the moment; so doing it the manual way is the only way right now.

What do i click in the Launcher to select Blue Planet? There are several buttons.Thanks

Go to the "MOD" tab. Click on "Select Mod". Select the blueplanet or blueplanet2 directory. Then click on the "Browse" button, and select the fs2_open_3_6_17_BP executable. Then click on the "Video" and select your preferred resolution. Do take care to set the color depth to 32 bits. Then go to the "Features" tab, and select the following:
With "List Type" set to "Graphics":
Enable post processing
Enable soft particles
Enable FXAA antialiasing

With "List Type" set to "Gameplay":
Use 3D models for ship selection
Use 3D models for weapon selection
Enable 3D warp

Then start FSO by pressing the "Run" button. If you've followed the install instructions correctly, BP should now be the active mod. For other mods, use the "MOD" tab.

I did everything what you told me   but everitime i try to run the game from the launcher it gives me a error box which says:  FreeSpace 2 Open - Antipodes has stopped working,and i have the option to check online for a solution or close the program. This is hard on me .I hope they will get that online installer running again.I did everything you told me in the launcher.One more thing: Maby i did something wrong because i added all the files from the blue planet installer mixed with those of the game in the FS directory?? Thanks again and sorry i repeated my first thread in other locations here.Just tell me when i install the blue planet complete where i install exactly? Is that in the FS directory?

Re: Hello everyone i am new here and i just have a urgent question
Wait, did you put the Blueplanet folders or the individual files in the FS directory?

Re: Hello everyone i am new here and i just have a urgent question
Hello and thanks once again for trying to help me.when i install the Blue Planet I install to FS2 Directory but then is there as a different folder named AGAIN FREESPACE 2 and it contains blue planet and blue planet 2.Should i mix the contains of these 2 folders with all the rest of fs2 files or leave them separately? I used the launcher it shows a small picture of a planet when i select blue planet 1 but when i try to run it it crashes.Can anyone please tell me when the automatic installer will be fixed? I tries a few minutes ago and still puts a 20-40 only text files in the fs2 directory.Nothing else.Is really a big pain with this ...Would be nice if someone would make a movie clip filming the screen of the computer of how this is done.Thank you much Sirs.

Re: Hello everyone i am new here and i just have a urgent question
The directory structure should be FreeSpace2/blueplanet and FreeSpace2/blueplanet2, not FreeSpace2/FreeSpace2/blueplanet.

The auto installer won't be fixed for a while.

Video guide for installing Freespace Open is actually a pretty good idea.
