FreeSpace Port 3.3 + FSPort Media VPs 3.6.13 Release!
Freespace Port 3.3 + FSPort Media VPs 3.6.13 Release

FSPort 3.3 and it's MediaVPs have gone through some serious debugging and testing. It has come out the other side brighter, cleaner, prettier, and smoother!

New upgrades and enhancements include:
  • HTL Typhon and HTL Hades! NOTE: Some people have reported issues with the Typhon model. If you experience those issues, please extract this to your FSPort-MediaVPs folder.
  • All Command Briefing Animations optimized for high resolutions!
  • Massive number of bugfixes!
  • Primary weapon models!
  • Compatible with the new version of ST:R!


As always FSPort remains retail compatible but optimized for Freespace Open. This release is fully compatible with FSO 3.6.12 and the 3.6.12 MediaVPs, with its own graphical enhancements package!

FSPort-MediaVPs

Installation

Retail FS2 (NOT FS2 Open): You must have retail FreeSpace 2 installed. Unpack the required packages to your Freespace2 directory. Make a new pilot, and go to the Campaign Room to select a FreeSpace Port campaign. To return to the FS2 campaign, run DisableFSPort.bat. To turn FSPort back on, run EnableFSPort.bat. To remove the mod, run RemoveFSPort.bat. The readme should help answer the most common questions.

FS2 Open: Delete, move, or rename your current FSPort and FSPort MediaVP directories. Unpack the zip packages into your 'games/freespace2/fsport' and 'games/freespace2/fsport-mediavps' directories. Then select either of those folders from the MOD tab of the Launcher.
If you are using the FSPort Media VPs, be sure that you have the official FreeSpace 2 3.6.12 MediaVPs installed in 'mediavps_3612' and you're using FSO 3.6.12 Final or newer.

You must select a Ported campaign in the campaign room such as "The Main FreeSpace Campaign" or "Silent Threat".  Simply launching into the ready room will start the main FreeSpace 2 campaign, which will not work when the Port is active. You must also use a separate pilot for FSPort campaigns or you will encounter strange errors.

Alternate HUD Layouts

Thanks to Kolgena for these alternate layouts.

Copy the text into a file called 'mv_root-hdg.tbm' and place in your 'FSPort-MediaVPs/data/tables' folder.

For the one member of the community who does not know what "fixed" means when discussing bugs: It means "this bug was removed and is no longer present".

Also, if you abuse the report feature again for a question of that nature, expect to find your e-mail address on all sorts of spam lists.
