DVD Release Notes:


The Babylon Project DVD is in an ISO format. The ISO Format is a Disc Image containing the data to be written to disc.

Nearly all CD/DVD Burning software support burning the ISO format to disc. It is a common format.

However if you are confused on how to burn an ISO to disc,
I suggest using the "BurnAware Free" (freeware, contains no crap-ware) available at
http://www.burnaware.com/burnaware_free.html

Alternately, you can also mount the ISO in a virtual drive.
You can download a Virtual Drive Program called "Virtual CloneDrive"
(freeware, contains no crap-ware) available at
http://www.slysoft.com/en/virtual-clonedrive.html

Finally, if you would prefer to extract the data from the ISO to a folder your hard drive,
you can use ISOBuster (shareware, unlimited demo) available at
http://www.isobuster.com/

--------------------------------------------------------

Minimum System Requirements:

Pentium 3 600 MHz or AMD equivalent
256 MB RAM
Microsoft Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/Vista (compatible with 64-bit)

For Questions and/or Comments regarding The Babylon Project DVD, please go to this thread:

 http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,56247.0.html

If you are posting mirror links for download, please post here :)

KNOWN ISSUE #1: On the ReadMe Menu, If  you click the Print Button,
it will launcher the installer instead of printing the ReadMe.

There are 2 ways to work around this:
1 - Simply click the Browser Button and print the readme from your browser.
2 - Browse the root of the DVD and open the readme.txt file and print from notepad.

KNOWN ISSUE #2: In the DVD ReadMe infomation refers to Campaign Pack v1.1
THIS IS INCORRECT!
The actual Version Number for the Campaign Pack included on the DVD is v2.0

Re: RELEASE: The Babylon Project DVD v1.0
Wait, wait. I spent over an hour downloading the file at the "Full DVD Download Link", and when I unzip it, I get a damaged readme and a disc image? Why do I need to burn this to a DVD to install it, and where are the install files?

EDIT: D'oh. This is what I get for not reading the entire post. The readme file *is* damaged, though.

Re: RELEASE: The Babylon Project DVD v1.0
You don't need to burn it. Just use your preferred Archiver to extract all the files from the ISO, and execute the Installer. Or use Daemon Tools et al to mount that Image.

Re: RELEASE: The Babylon Project DVD v1.0
Is it up to date?
I downloaded it installed and #^$@#^%@*$%@$  after couple of hours spent on doing a lot of strange settings in the launcher and reading this forum...
why this game is so buggy :/
neither d3d or opengl works for me -> comp hangs or game just quits and everytime i have some fragments of textures floating in space( lol wtf?) .
Forced software rendering works only (not bad thx to coreduo cpu), but no primary weapon beams (its invisible) buggy model of ship Rising Star in one of the missions prevents to accomplish the goal - there was a thread about but solution has beed removed (deleted attachment)
Launcher has a lot of options but it seems like half of it doesnt work at all and debug exe is producing errors like 'too many ship clases' or something.
Comon people...game looks very nice but....bugs everywhere
My drivers are fine, a lot of d3d or opengl games works on it - except this one.
I was wondering maybe i should paste some logs etc ...but later maybe :( i'm confused and tired

Re: RELEASE: The Babylon Project DVD v1.0
If you have run a debug build, please post the fs2_open.log from the data folder here.
You should also get Zathras, which includes updated executables and a ton of bugfixes.

Re: RELEASE: The Babylon Project DVD v1.0
Hi
I've installed zathras, there is some change, Rising Star problem seems to be fixed i did notice also fps drop.
Thats how my hud looks like:


In software mode seems to be ok except lack of visible weapon shots and fps drops sometimes below 5.
But still a lot of warnings in debug mode.

 fs2_open.log attached and debug messages from the clipboard

Thanks for any advice

That is most likely your problem right there.  Unless you can find newer drivers for that video card you are most likely out of luck.  OpenGL 1.4 is bare minimum for FS2_Open and Direct3D isn't supported anymore. 

Also not that it matters in this case but you didn't actually enable Zathras in the launcher.  Really doubt that will help though but you never know. 
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

Re: RELEASE: The Babylon Project DVD v1.0
I did enable zathras in the launcher too, after this screenshot has been made, no changes.
To be honest I was afraid you could refer to my graphic card.
Well ... no chance to get another driver, theres only few versions, and the only 1 i guess which works good enought to play games.
Q3A, ET, CS ,JK  and few other ogl games working just fine but like you said... I'm most likely out of luck in this case.

Re: RELEASE: The Babylon Project DVD v1.0
New single missions (file extension: .fs2) need to be in <TBP directory>\data\missions.

New vp files can usually be placed directly into the TBP directory.

Re: RELEASE: The Babylon Project DVD v1.0
Ah, so you want to insert it directly into the DVD install files? That is more complicated. Also, why would you want to do that?
