What are the latest versions of EVERYTHING???
Could a SCP member please provide a comprehensive list and links to the current versions of all important files pertaining to running and modding  FS2:SCP.

(FS2:Open, Launcher, Media VP's, PCS, etc.......)

I am quite frustrated with having to have to comb through countless forums to find the LATEST releases and versions of crucial software to run and mod Freespace 2 SCP.

I recently started modding Freespace and right now my hard drive is a mess of so many versions of different stuff. I fear that many of the problems  I am experiencing, either running or modding, are in vain because of outdated files.

This will prevent many newbie questions and problems from repeating. The SCP Genious Machine can  focus on the latest bugs and problems that are relevent in the continuing evolution of Freespace 2.

You are a saint. But your PCS link is not the latest for those who are modding.

Heres my 2 cents:

Latest PCS 1.3.4: (model converter)
http://sourceforge.net/projects/alliance

Maybe it would be an idea to have an automatic updater for some of these things.

It would, except that with the exception of the SCP, they're changed about once a year, tops.

Actually, stickying this would be a very wise idea.

Or, possibly a better idea, have one of the project heads make a new topic and they always keep the latest files linked to in the first post, and sticky that. It'll reduce confusion for a lot of people who use FSO. Including myself. >>

Auto updater?  Make it work from the launcher to work with the Media pack, launch and the exe?

Wow, good idea!

And all in one pack?
Would make things much easier for the normal user to find and use SCP to the full.

He doesn't need to change his name just his act. Most of us are quite forgiving. I've seen people act like total noobs when they first got here only to settle down into productive members of the community.
