Re: Official new people thread!
Hello everyone! Greetings from Serbia!

I've read somewhere on this forum 'and you've been stalking the forum for a quite while now' and I thought 'Yeah, I did, for quite some time I should at least join now'.

So here I am, just another guy who played both FSs waaaaay back that got implemented in my brain, like, forever.   :D

I had tons of problems with the game + mods, they wouldn't work at all or something would be missing, crashes, etc, etc, and all of that came to an end like 2 days ago when I bought the game from GoG and installed Knossos and everything works pretty well without a single error. So good.

I just want to express my gratitude towards everyone here on the forum, to the people who made mods for FS, and to the game developers themselves.

It's almost 20 years since when this game was released and I love it more than ever. Got the original music extracted out for the casual listening when chilling :D

So, cheers to you all folks!

ps: sorry for my bad English

Glad to have you on board!  And your English is better than a lot of Americans' English. ;)

Re: Official new people thread!
Hello everyone, another Freespace fan of old here just joining.

Looking forward to playing again, but could use a bit of info here. I still have my original 5-disc copy of the game, can I use that to get things up and running or would I need to buy one of the new versions from GoG or Steam? I've been looking to figure out how I would go about this but can't seem to pin down any concrete details. I don't have any problems with double dipping on a game like this, but if there is something out there I can use to get the needed files onto the computer from my physical copy, that'd be great.

First off,

:welcomeblue:

If your old disc copy of Freespace 2 can install on your current machine, you should still be good to go. Then, grab Knossos (the new launcher--it's basically steam for Freespace mods) and you should be good to go.
If you don't have Knossos, you need it.

It's alive! It's alive!!! I can scarcely believe that my all time favourite space game, and one of my top 5 games of all time, is alive again! I spent literally thousands of hours playing FS and FS2 20 years ago and was very sad when an updated DX more or less killed off the game. So, imagine my delight when I randomly came across this web page! FS2 again! And it works!!

I just want to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone who's contributed to the Frespace Open project. I can't begin to imagine the countless hours of development time that went in to this, and it's free! Incredible  :eek2:

Really looking forwards to taking the controls of Alpha 1 again after so many years...
