Re: FSO Installer is down
Daw. I just joined the forum today, seeing the revitalization that Freespace so deserves, and I can't find a current FSO Installer ;_;. This makes me baw. Anything I can do to help you guys out? I DID manage to find the previous version of FSO Installer (3.6.10), but it doesn't want to install.

:wtf: Err, it's an online installer. It's a small program that gets a lot of stuff from the Internet. There shouldn't be any different "versions" as such.

Manual installation is always an option, though at the moment it relies on people to upload FSO builds somewhere, because those are also unavailable.

Re: FSO Installer is down
Installations are at a halt until someone rehosts the builds. This is bad! We need to fix it!

I try to run it and it tells me "This version of the Freespace Open Installer is outdated, and you cannot continue with an outdated version. Would you like to bring up the download page for the most recent version?" I click "Yes" and it does nothing. lol. I MUST HAVE FREESPACE ;_;

That's a bug caused by the installer not recognizing the difference between a missing version info file and an out-of-date version info file. :)  Rest assured, a fix (to that as well as the hosting issue) is in progress.

This makes me happy. Once again, if there's anything I can do to help, let me know. I'll playtest it for you, but I think that's all I can do. lol.

I do pride myself on being a good critic, though :P

 
Re: FSO Installer is down
Yeah I hope the installer becomes available soon.   I just installed Freespace 1 and 2 so I could show my 2 nephews how awesome the game is.

Re: FSO Installer is down
I'm hoping for a good response.  It's been a few years since I last used SCP, lost HDD's and installs, and builds.  Bah!

Re: FSO Installer is down
Maybe a reupload of the necessary files to Mediafire or sg for now? Somebody surely has the files.

Please don't kick me if I said something stupid, I haven't reinstalled FSO since I became a member here.

Re: FSO Installer is down
I have the builds, haven't had the time to get them re-uploaded manually anywhere yet.

Everything is manually downloadable isn't it? I've never used the installer.

Re: FSO Installer is down
The 3.6.12 executables are on the same server as the installer.

Re: FSO Installer is down
So does this make it a full-fledged server issue, or just a problem with the naming records?  I do know that filefront will host very large files and has mirroring available if that's a short-term solution.
