One question - why do the ships have such bad textures ?

 
I liked it. The ships had a steam punk look to them. I also enjoyed playing without things like targeting, though it was a relief when I finally got it. Can't way to play the rest.  :pimp:

Are you sure I have to delete/move textures, icons and other files from my root FS2 folder?

They shouldn't be in your root FS2 folder anyway! They should be in mod folders!!

They're just innocent maps and icons. Anyway, removing everything from my root FS2 folder didn't help. I get the same error! :mad:

Go to your FreeSpace 2 directory.  Then type

dir /s > listing.txt

Then attach listing.txt.

He means go to run, then CMD.

Then enter CD C:\Games\Freespace 2 (or whatever your root FS2 directory is), then enter Goober5000's string.

You should get something like this in your FS2 root folder.

Seriously, piece of art. Very good feel of low tech (hell, I thought that the begining of FS1 was "low tech").

BTW  :nervous: Somethings tells me that were gonna hate bomber duty in full release. when I was intecepting hostile bombers, they launched their warheads. Those were only a bit faster than bombers. I shot them down...effect?  bomber that launched it was down to 30% of hull by warhead explosion  :ick:


EDIT:
Falcon fighter looks a bit like BSG Viper mk.7  :D

My computer doesn't speak English(to a certain extent) and translating literally won't help, everything has different names(not the exact translation of their English version).

XP? 'Run' is the thing directly above the 'Log off' and 'Shut down' buttons in your start menu. And I think Cobra means typing 'CMD' to the field that appears after that, and pressing Enter. At least that's what I'd do.

Ah, "Esegui"(that means "Execute"...I told you, the names are completely different :doubt:)

I don't think I can perform that action. It always starts with "C:\Documents and Settings\FRA>", my FS2 directory is elsewhere and I can't correct that path. Oh well...should I move the whole folder? Do I risk something? Everything is set this way since the last summer, when my computer lost video, audio and XP's stability.

Do whatever the Italian equivalent is to what I just showed you.

If you don't know what that is, there's always Google.

I opened it but I don't think I can get that listing.txt due to problems my computer is having since this summer.

Don't you know how to use the command prompt / terminal / console?

cd games

I don't know if I can do it correctly, my computer is all subfolders of subfolders of folders, I can't apparently select the proper one with CMD(I tried one more time a few minutes ago).

Found it a little dissapointing, no shields, and no afterburners to try and evade attacks, if I had 2 on my it'd always get really hard because I had no tools to evade. Feels like a shell of a game with very little going for it, gameplay wise.

All of them have afterburners, except the Falcon and Atlas.  :confused:

I admit, tho, piloting a Falcon requires quite a bit of patience. I never chose it when I didn't have to.

Just a couple of issues I notice, the Shrike doesn't have an eyepoint so I can't use my hat to look around, and on

What directory is your Freespace in?  I will then tell you exactly what to type.  (It's in my sig, under Post FS2 tree, but I'll type instructions specifically for you.)  ;)

Sillinesses mar what would have been great.

Being unable to lock and track a target; this is damnably stupid. It's a capablity that any fighter aircraft today has. I get why it was done, but you should have thought of a better way; messed with the interface to remove some of the normal target data we get, for example, and/or removed the "Aim Here" aid. (Or allowed it only in a mode similar to Wing Commander 2's single target track one.)

I've noticed a distinct tendancy for the landing AI to end up crashing into something and having to go around on the Exos. Apparently it doesn't like landing more than a couple of ships at a time, though it tries to do more.

Somebody forgot to put the Mustang Alpha and Mustang Beta techroom entries up once they come into service with the LR. (Or maybe they should have been up since the beginning, since they were apparently already in service with the UNE and I sincerely think LR intelligence would know about them!)

There's absolutely no way you can introduce engines that run on time, replacing engines that run on fuel.

Watch me.

Pre-unlimited use versions used a second set of thrusters with limited fuel, or a special higher-performance fuel for the existing set. However the newer design does away with that, and instead uses a capacitor-based system to temporarily push the electromagnetic containment fields of the fusion drive up to higher power levels, which pushes the stuff coming out the back faster, which makes you go faster. All it takes is electricity, which you're generating already.
