Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.4
This thread: http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=87682.0

suggests that the 'complete' option is maybe not installing the full MediaVPs, just the root file?

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.4
Where in that thread is that suggested?

Also, the "complete" option selects everything.  I reran the installer just now to double check.

It's because you've only downloaded MV_Root. There are no actual graphics in that pack, just tables and enhanced missions. Grab MV_Music, MV_Assets, and MV_Effects as well from that thread I linked - and the rest too if you want them.

i'm still waiting for my browser to start the downloads for the remaining VP files, in the meantime, when I get them, I just throw the files themselves straight into the "MediaVP's_2014" folder, right?

as for the installer thing, I did the complete, absolutely everything option and those boxes were already taken care of. should I rerun it anyway?

User error is a possibility, but it's also possible that the installer did not deliver all the selected content. Worth attempts to repro since it's a serious usability issue.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.4
Based on the rest of the thread, I'd call that either user error or misunderstanding what the installer is doing.  I've successfully installed the 2014 and 3.6.12 MVPs using the installer.

 
Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.4
I am having an issue with the installer.
Specifically, when the MediaVPs 2014 were downloaded, the download failed (I have an unreliable connection). However, the installer itself thinks that the MVP2014s are installed fully. See attached image.

Furthermore, selecting "re-run installation for installed mods" seems to attempt to redownload all the things, whilst CRC-checking the actual files first and then re-downloading if the CRC check turns out to be a bodge would be a far more effecient solution.

Heck, just the installer actually being capable of looking if VPs are already present in the directory before giving the list of options would be a great boon to those who already have instarted part of FS2 manually.

Could you upload your logs folder?  This should be in the same location where you ran FreeSpaceOpenInstaller.jar.

This is actually precisely what is doing.  It is re-checking each file in lieu of referring to its internal cache of mods that are downloaded vs. not downloaded.

The installer only knows about the archive, not the VP files contained in the archive.  It doesn't actually scan the VP files until it attempts to download the mod, as mentioned in the previous point.  If the installer scanned every VP file before displaying the list, there would be an unacceptably long delay.


Huh. So maybe it wasn't user error.
Possibly not, but I'm not ruling anything out yet.  The logs will help illuminate the issue.

Exactly so.  Although I wonder where Steam will install FS2... the Installer will have problems if the directory is not writeable.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.4
Okay, I suspect the MVPs problem and the JAD problem are actually the same problem.  The root cause is that the archive format is unsupported, but the immediate cause is that the installer is not catching the fact that the extraction failed -- it thinks it succeeded.

It may turn out to be necessary to copy the files in the steam install directory to somewhere else. By default, Steam lives in C:\Program Files, we know that this causes issues. There are options available to change the location Steam installs things to, but I don't think we can count on people to know about them, much less know about it before downloading FS2.

Hmm. It seems to be drawing internet whilst the installer shows nothing being downloaded during this process.

Even if it automatically asumes that every file in there has been correctly downloaded, and merely checks for existence?

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.4
You'd think there'd be some QC on the Steam side of things making sure games install to places where they are compatible, but it seems in this case they're cutting corners and releasing exactly the same stuff as GOG.  FS1 purchasers had a lot of difficulties that probably could have been avoided by taking a little extra effort, but weren't, so I'm guessing Freespace 2 will be handled similarly.  Sad, really.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.5
I've uploaded version 2.1.5 with the following changes:
  • InnoExtract is now supported on some Macs, thanks to chief1983 providing a Mac build of InnoExtract
  • get the user.home path in a way that works on all platforms (bypass a Java bug that occasionally had user.home return the wrong location on Windows)
  • properly exit a download if an error was encountered in the compression, as opposed to reporting success
  • minor optimization improvements


Here it is! :)
Thanks very much.  I didn't see anything that looked like a smoking gun, unfortunately, although there were a large number of runs logged.

What I'd like you to do is delete (or archive) your entire logs folder, so that the 2.1.5 build starts with a clean slate.  Then edit fsoinstaller.properties to remove the version numbers of the mods that were not downloaded.  Then run 2.1.5 and see if the latest changes fixed your bug.  If not, upload the logs folder again.

Yes, it is accessing the remotely hosted zip file to compare its size with the size of the file that's locally on disk.  This requires internet access even though nothing is being extracted.

Yes, even then, because the delay is not on the local file system side.  The delay is in getting the VP information from the archive file's table of contents over HTTP.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.5
Perhaps it could work with a button to inquiry the internet if all you have is "up to speed"? Most people wouldn't mind some minutes of machine-thinking if that means it can assess correctly what you are missing, what you are not missing, what is corrupted, etc.

For instance, it's glaringly ugly for me to run the application and it implicitly telling me I haven't download the mediavps, but that I did download Sync, when I just downloaded the former months ago and used the app to download the latter.

Yet it seems to take rather long and consume significant amounts of bandwith. Wouldn't putting this information in a seperate .txt file be a lot faster?

The installer doesn't actually download the files to check the size, it merely checks the size HTTP reports.

 
Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.5
Hmm. I am still suprised by bandwith amounts and the like, but perhaps it is simply the result of the installer downloading stuff and not being all that transparant about it.

Regardless, the issue I first made a report about has been fixed: The FSOpen installer seems to properly recognize that the MVP2014s download has failed, and therefore I don't need to check the re-run installation button to ensure that everything works.
I shall now see if I can get the other files.
