General troubleshooting
  • Do not use one pilot to play more than one campaign. Doing so is asking for trouble. Use different pilot for each campaign you play.
  • Are some ships appearing as GTF Ulysses? You forgot to use an Inferno build!
  • Are you getting a warning about missing ship classes? You forgot to use an Inferno build!
  • Please make sure your mediavps folder is empty of custom mods. Any mod installed to mediavps can potentially cause conflicts with Blue Planet.
  • Are you getting crashes when using Voice Recognition for wingman commands? Disable it in the launcher (Voice Recognition, under Experimental Features section).
  • For technical problems your first stop should be The FreeSpace Troubleshooting FAQ


Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius - Director's Cut troubleshooting
  • As instructed, you did delete old blueplanet folder before installing the Director's Cut, did you not?
  • Did you create a new pilot? If not, do that and see if the problem (whatever it is) occurs again.
  • Planet in second mission looks really odd, with artifacts everywhere? Delete bp-adv-visuals.vp file. Your video card can't handle high-res textures.


Blue Planet 2: War in Heaven troubleshooting
  • Did you create a new pilot? If not, do that and see if the problem (whatever it is) occurs again.
  • Planet in first cutscene mission looks really odd, with artifacts everywhere? Delete bp-adv-visuals.vp and bp2-adv-visuals.vp files. Your video card can't handle high-res textures.



Performance troubleshooting
If you encounter poor performance and you downloaded MV_Advanced from the mediavps release topic, delete MV_Advanced.vp from FreeSpace2\mediavps folder. Also delete bp-adv-visuals.vp from FreeSpace2\blueplanet folder if you downloaded them.

If you still have poor performance, open Launcher and navigate to Features tab, select Graphics as list type. Unselect "Enable specular", "Enable normal maps" and "Enable 3D shockwaves" If you use 3.6.12 build, unselect "Enable post processing" as well. If you still aren't happy with performance, unselect "Enable glowmaps" and "Enable environment maps".
