FS1 Mod does not show up in Campaign Room
Ok, I installed The SCP files, and then installed the FS1 mod (fsport), the latest files I believe. At first, I had the error with the missing sparky_hi_fs1.vp file, but after looking through this forum I managed to find and download that file, so now I've got the main screen. (I also downloaded the hi res textures and did the registry tweak, just FYI.)

But when I go to the Campaign Room, the Freespace 1 mod does not show up. I only see Freespace 2 there. (Clicking the Ready Room starts the Freespace 2 campaign.)

Am I missing something?

Windows XP Pro SP2, Pentium 3, 1GB memory, GeForce FX Go5200, Dx9.

Oh, I might also add that I can play other mods, and when I try to return to the fsport mod it says "The currently active campaign cannot be found. Please select another..."

*cries*

1) Make a folder called "mediavps" and put the SCP files in that folder.
2) Make a folder called "fsport" put the FSport files in that folder.
3) Run the launcher
4)Click on the mod tab
5) Click Browse
6) Select the folder called fsport
7) Start and go into the campaign room.

I'm sorry, but seriously, if you had searched the forum, you could have found this easily.

Re: FS1 Mod does not show up in Campaign Room
The 3.6.9 installer made a mediavps folder, it has in it

mp-710_adveffects.vp
mp-710_effects.vp
mp-710_models.vp
mp_adveffects.vp
mp_effects.vp
mv_core.vp
mv_models.vp
mv_music.vp
mv_textures.vp

and a data folder with ibx files in a cache subfolder.

I put the fsport files in their own fsport folder.

Still doesn't work.  I see the proper main screen but it won't find the mod in the campaign room.

Re: FS1 Mod does not show up in Campaign Room
What do you actually have in the FSPort folder?

(BTW if you run the debug version the FS2_Open.log in Data will list everything for you. Might be quicker to just run and quit than typing it out).

Re: FS1 Mod does not show up in Campaign Room
Couldn't figure out how to do that.  :(

Does this help?

So where is the FS1Port? It's not in the right folder.

Re: FS1 Mod does not show up in Campaign Room
Ah... should I then change the name of that folder to fs1port? instead of fsport?

(Um, no, that didn't help...)

What should I be looking for?

Ok nevermind, I got it figured out. I had neglected to download and install the mission pack and training pack.

That's what I thought was the problem but I wasn't going to send you off to download it if you already had it. :)

May I recommend Turey's installer to avoid headaches from now on. It will download a whole bunch of campaigns for you and since you already have FS2_Open it shouldn't waste your time downloading that. :)

Re: FS1 Mod does not show up in Campaign Room
That was what I used. It must have glitched.

Anyway, I got it going now, thanks.

It wouldn't have helped him this time, unless wcsaga.com has gone back up.

It only does if another mod uses data from the port, then that mods mod.ini needs to point to the correctly spelled port folder, (usually standardised to fsport)  :P
