Sci-Fi Sim of the Year missions
For those of you who don't have the extra Sci-Fi Sim of the Year missions, I have uploaded them as a VP here:
http://www.freespacemods.net/download.php?view.824

Because the FS2NetD multiplayer pack has all the multiplayer Sci-Fi Sim of the Year missions, I have included only the single-player missions.

Hmmm, why am I getting a red-flag from my Anti-virus when I proceed to open this?

Looks clean to me? What specifically does your antivirus report? It's fairly common for certain products to very easily report false-positives on legitimate files purely for heuristic reasons.

FSMods has a comment about this (from 2009!): http://www.freespacemods.net/comment.php?comment.news.17

Either Trend Micro still thinks it's a malicious site, or they now know it's safe but your database isn't up to date.

Anyway, the file is safe as far as I know. It's just a short text file and a VP with unmodified files that were installed with an official version of FS2.

you don't even need to buy one.  AVG or MSE would both be better, and either is about 30 seconds to download and install.

Re: Sci-Fi Sim of the Year missions
Try COMODO Internet Security. IMHO, it beats all other antivirus/firewall programs I've used. And it's also free.
The downside is that it's a little paranoid, so you have to "teach" it about all programs you want to use. You have to do this only once though.

Re: Sci-Fi Sim of the Year missions
sometimes once is enough to royally bork you though.  i had one catch a file in the middle of a patch installer.  it halted the ONE file from being copied, but the installer (sort of) carried on.  the result was some godawful mess of a patch job that left the game in a state where it wouldn't work, and flat out wouldn't run the patch again or its uninstaller (kinda like how the 1.06 patch wouldn't go over ST in FS1 retail).  i don't remember exactly, but the final solution was something like manually delete the install folder and run a registry cleaner to get rid of leftover references, and then reinstall the 10+ GB.  and i didn't even have the install disks with me at school, i had to wait for the next holiday break i went home for.

Re: Sci-Fi Sim of the Year missions
because most review publications rate it on the number of detections, and it hasn't been until very recently that anyone paid attention to false positives.  and slapping a "highest rated" sticker on the box of antivirus does wonders for sales.

Microsoft Security Essentials (free, great, I use it)

AVG Free great, I used to use it but switched to MSE when it started getting bloated around version 9.  Not sure, they may have fixed the bloat by now.

I know a lot of people also use Avast! Personal Edition and are happy too.

As always, make sure you uninstall your other Anti-Virus before using these.

Re: Sci-Fi Sim of the Year missions
i use MSE on my desktop and AVG on my laptop (which is used for more... dubious tasks...  :nervous:)

AVG is still a bit heavier, yes, but it also is a bit more powerful with the link scanner/bad page blocker and whatnot.  i'm not sure i'd call it bloated, other than the little bits of nag trying to get you to buy pro (don't bother with the system scanner or any of that mess).

Re: Sci-Fi Sim of the Year missions
They must have fixed the bloat then.  I guess there was a version 10, and now they've switched to using the year, and it's version 2012.0.xxxx   http://www.filehippo.com <-- get yer good here.

Just to re-iterate, don't try them both at the same time... ;)

Heh... I know that!( not to toot my own horn, I am a registered comp. tech).  I remember this one dude of mine who had five AVs at once, and worst of all, he set them all to run a boot scan (to clear up all the viruses, he said ;) )

Needless to say that he need a re-format.
