Hey, congrats on the release, what i've seen so far looks really good and polished, and i hate to be the first guy with problems, but i'm having some trouble with my... visuals. First time i extracted the game, everything ran smoothly, except that all the ships were just disembodied engine glows :| both in the techroom and in missions. In the first mission/sequence ships were sometimes visible and appeared and disappeared as they moved, and my fighter was visible when alt-j-ing out of the tutorial, but besides that there's nothing. Then I tried re-extracting the game, and the ships are still invisible, but now all glowy things leave trails lasting a couple of seconds on the screen, so everything kinda looks like that trippy 2001 sequence, which is kinda cool, but probably unintentional.
I don't know what algorithm are the vp checksums generated with or how to check them. FS2 with 3.7.2 RC5 exes seems to work fine.
