Freespace Port 3.5 + FSPort Media VPs Release
In honor of Groundhog Day, we are proud to bring you yet another release of the FreeSpace Port: version 3.5.  This latest and greatest version offers full support for the MediaVPs 2014 while retaining the reverse compatibility that this mod is famous (and infamous) for.

We are also proud to offer the latest DIRECTOR'S CUT update of Silent Threat: Reborn!  Check out the thread for more details!

Here's all the spiffy new stuff available in this version of the Port:

* Campaigns now use mjn.mixael's enhanced main halls when the optional main hall pack is present
* The medal screen now features mjn.mixael's rerendered FS1 medals, instead of copies of the FS2 medal images
* Added updated versions of Dan Wentz's remixed FS1 music tracks
* Compatibility updates for MediaVPs 2014
* Translation support for German, French, Polish, and Spanish, using the original FS1 language packs
* Re-added the "big blast" Faustus and the GTS Centaur#Charon, with associated mission updates including support in sm2-07a
* The background in sm3-10a is now based on actual astronomical data from 2335-03-30 22:01:16 UTC
* Miscellaneous bugfixes
As always FSPort remains retail compatible but optimized for Freespace Open.  If you use FSO, we recommend a recent build such as 3.7.2 RC5.  (Please note that some features, such as the enhanced main halls, will not appear when playing earlier versions.)

It is strongly recommended to use the FreeSpace Open Installer to download and install the Port, due to the number of possible mod configurations.  But if you would like to manually download the files, you can find them listed below.

(Note, the translation packs are not provided through the installer, because of the possibility of conflicts if the user selects "Complete Installation".  Those will need to be downloaded manually for the time being.)

NOTE: The VPs containing original FS1 media have been removed.  Work is in progress to provide a way to copy those resources from an existing FS1 installation.  For community-created enhancements, such as MjnMixael's remastered FS1 cutscenes or Dan Wentz's remastered music, see below.

Optional Downloads
The FSPort Media VP makes everything pretty, and the music VP contains the remixed version of the FS1 soundtrack that Dan Wentz provided specially for HLP. Both are optional, but highly recommended!

These are the hi-res Command Brief Anims rendered by Mjn.Mixael. They are big, but they are awesome. Highly recommended!

Big, big thanks to everyone who contributed to this, including Galemp, Goober5000, Yarn, Mjn.Mixael, Cobra, Tarvis, Thaeris, VasudanAdmiral, IceyJones, Admiral Nelson, Hellstryker, Flaming Sword, Aardwolf, Dark, DTP, the SCP Team, the whole FreeSpace Community and especially Volition, for starting it all.

I literally must have just caught this as you posted it. Looking forward to seeing how it all looks now you've updated it! :D

Sweet.  Finally the update I've been waiting for.  (Still no new Apollo though :( )
And ST:R too.  Plus cutscenes for that?  Yes, please.

Edit: well crap I crashed when the repulse arrived.  not sure if it's you guys or if it's the radar icons I've been working on.  Does the regular executable generate a log or just the debug build?
(FSO exited with a status of 255)
Transient error


I tested the translation pack (french) for fsport 3.5 and only voice and cutscenes work. No text is translated in the game (briefing, debriefing or playing). If someone have an solution, i will apreciate it ;)

Thank you

I believe it is necessary to set your language in the FreeSpace 2 registry.  I'm not sure how to do this, but it has been discussed on HLP so you might be able to search for it.

Yarn handled the translation packs, so he should be able to provide a better answer when he sees your question.
