I'm a new guy here (obviously
) but I'm a quick study who has had a hand in modding games before. With
of experence in putting together installers and DVD Menus.
So I found Hard Light here and the groovy things you guys have been doing with the FSSCP, really quite cool 8)
But I must say getting all installed and set up can be a bit daunting. Luckly for me, with past modding experience (and healthly dose of forum searching
) I got everything humming along nicely and didn't even have to ask questions.
After I got all going, I decided, hey how about I build a nice installer for it, so I did.
Man, it is REAL PRETTY TOO and works perfectly, hate to brag (but not really) but it's about the prettiest Freespace installer you ever saw too with FS2 graphics thru out, FS2 Background, legal disclaimers, install info, installs complete game with FS Port and campaigns, launches OpenAL setup, starts the FSSCP launcher on exit, installs the online updater, so basically the whole 9 yards!
Then I even went a step further and created a DVD Autorun Menu that is just as pretty and functional, with a DVD Menu that is sure to please any freespace fan
Only one problem tho, I'm on Satelite Internet (eek! cringe! gasp!
) and absolutely have no way or place to upload this monster.
However, if someone with access to the a place to upload for the community, I would be happy to mail a DVD to them for posting (after they thoroughly scan and test it, just to be safe) for the whole community!
Consider it a tribute from one modder to another (or others as the case may be) for all the fine work done here.
P.S. - For those asking, 'so what was his past modding I wonder?'
Here's a sample of my work for Fighter Squadron: Screamin' Demons Over Europe (A game older that Freespace, LOL)
(I did all that work, might as well show it off, right?
And a butt-load of missions and skin packs (with help) for said game
and yeah, it was a real effort to get those uploaded, even tho they are WAY smaller (less the 100megs) the the Freespace Installer I built for you guys (almost 2 gigs)
BTW - All FS-SDOE Mods are free too www.openplanesim.com
Now how's that for an entrance and first post!
