Would this require updating the installer itself, as in downloading a new version of it?

No. The installer downloads config data from the net.

Re: FreeSpace Port 3.2 + FSPort Media VPs 3.6.12 Discussion!
hmm i find it weird that some effects and textures in ST or ST:R campaign is still 1999ish while most of them are as beautiful as fsport mediavps_3612. wonder why that it ?_?

the 1999ish effects i found are:

GTD orion's texture (and no flashing lights on the hull, strange that in the tech room the orion model is much prettier)
missile trails (seems ok with fury, but inteceptor and hornet...)
afterburner trails (ye i kinda 'look back' a lot)
in the FS1 main campaign these issues do no exist :confused:

and last but not least...you guys did a brilliant job. thank you for all your efforts and please, keep up the good work. :yes:

true. but the orion and missile trails effects are just the same thing in the main campaign, right? confused me that in ST:R they are not improved by the mediavps (while everything else in ST:R have been). Not to complain on anything but just wondering if i did anything wrong with the set-up.

The retail-style Orions are a result of a bug in the code where it can't process texture replacement in a table entry properly. It SHOULD be fixed in 3.6.14 or later.

Should being the operative word.  It "should" have been fixed in 3.6.10. :nervous:

I've noticed a few bugs in FSport 3.2 single missions which were not present in their original versions. I'll just list these bugs here.

1) Mission "No man's land": mercenaries/pirates disguised as friendly do not arrive near the end of the mission.

2) Mission "Master of illusions": The Lucifer with its escort arrive too late or don't arrive at all (that depends on when you start attacking the shivan convoy).

3) Mission "Roadkill": mission never ends even though all hostiles are destroyed (and you fail if jump out).

4) Mission "Loner": mission gets stuck if not all wingmen are killed before the vasudan ace should arrive.

5) Mission "Shadows": GTSC Barnett and GTT Nightingale depart only 5 minutes later than they should (after all hostiles destroyed and "Let's get back to home" message is sent). Also the shivan ace pilot never arrives and all fighters of Alpha wing are gone from the start.

6) Mission "Warship gauntlet": the Lucifer is shielded but the player is supposed to kill it.

On the other hand I remember a few bugs in original FS1 single missions which I didn't encounter in their FSPort 3.2 versions.

Also, is there any way to solve the "hacked tables" problem when playing FSPort 3.2 + FSPort MVPs 3.6.12 multiplayer?

As of right now, no.  See http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=75195 for more information on what is needed to validate tables for multi.
