Re: Invisible asteroids? Look here for the solution.
My suggestion is to delete anything in your FS2 folder and download it again. Use Turey's installer, it will get everything right first time.

Alternative solution: I will explain when I get home (give me 4-5 hrs from the time of this post)...  But yes, re-downloading all 3.5 GB of data will, most likely, fix the problem.

...Sorry about that... I was quite late, (my fault, too) and then I forgot to post a link to the work I did here.  Look in my sig, under Troubleshoot FS2: MD5.

That makes sense. No wonder I didn't see any asteroids in the Derelict campaign.

OK.  I have a question: What is the advantage of keeping retail compatibility?

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
So that newbs will come and ask for help with problems, and get roped into FSO.

What is the point?

So that the Port will remain compatible with retail, naturally.

The goal of the Port is to allow FS1 to be played on FS2.  Not FSO, FS3, or anything else.  FS1 is retail-compatible; ST is retail-compatible; and we decided ST:R should be retail-compatible too.

Note that retail-compatible does not mean retail-restricted.  The Port has FSO enhancements; they just won't work on FS2.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Err ... OK ... thanks for the response, even though it still doesn't make a lot of sense, especially since using retail is about equivalent to living in a cave around here ... :nervous:

Some people are scared of installing new software, like game engines. Or they have low-end computers but fail to understand that the MediaVPs are not a requirement for FSPort. A simple mod for FS2 just might sound tempting.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Well, y'know, retail won't change... so once you've pushed the retail-compatible fork to its max, perhaps you might wanna fork, if there's any benefit.  I mean, the FS2 retail engine has limitations.  Once the Port has improved to meet them, what's the point of continuing to be restrained by it?  Also, if you push the FS2 retail engine to its max, the whole point of being able to run the Port on retail (ie, with lower-end computers) is prolly compromised anyways.  But if it's possible to always allow retail compatibility, then I guess it works fine.  Heh... it's going to be moot anyways as soon as a version of Windows becomes prevalent that won't work with Retail.  Does Vista work with retail, when using compatibility for 95 or 98?

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Vista doesn't even work with FSO*, so that's a bad example.

But as I said, retail-compatible does not mean retail-restricted.  We have plenty of FSO features in our projects.  And now Galemp is working on an FS1-era HTL pack.


*Some people have reported running FSO on Vista.  These people are either Microsoft corporate shills, or have been driven insane and are hallucinating.

Apparently Woo is a corporate shill...

There was that other option as well.

Given what I know of Woomeister, I'd hazard that hallucinations are far more likely than him being a shill. :D ;7
