Sound issue..I think
Hello,
First post. I have just downloaded and installed the FS2 open via the online installer.
I want to thank all of you who have kept this game going and have done a wonderful job of making it work on newer hardware.

I have installed FS2 and it works well with one small problem....the voice used to give breifings and during campaign communications is that of the Narrator from Micrsoft (Mike/Sam/Bill..whatever).

If anyone might be able to provide a link to or instructions for resolving this niggly problem I would much appreciate it!!! The deadpan narrration kind of kills the drama of the game!!

Thanks in advance for any replies

Turey,
I will do as soon as I get back home in front of the laptop again.
BTW if you are the Turey from the Java installer, great job!!! :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes:
It was very easy to use and work with Xp Sp 2 no problems on a Toshiba Laptop Celeron M with an ATI Raedeon Xpress 200m card.
I noticed the in the log section of the installer after complete download, all the FS1  port stuff did not download, error reported the mirror was down.. no biggie but I thought to let you know.
Thanks for the reply

I'm having the same problem, I'm running Windows Vista, if that helps. I used the Freespace 2 easy install. Any help would be appreciate, as the voice acting in Freespace 2 was one of the most memorable pieces of the game!

Yes, you are missing the tango1, 2 & 3 vps from your root directory, these are the voice files required for FS2 and also missing the warble vp which I believe is the music vp. There is another missing but I can't for the life of me remember what it is at the moment?

You are also missing files from FSPort, but this is a known issue as the wcsaga server is down at the moment.

Stu_fs2.vp is the voices. Tango is the command briefing animations.

It's disturbing how often this is happening, yet I can't seem to track the problem down...

If anyone used the .jar version and had this problem, would you mind posting FreeSpace2\Installer\installer_error.log.txt ? I'd like to take a look at it.

Re: Sound issue..I think
Wow, thanks for the fast responses!
How would I locate those files myself? Should I rerun the online installer or is ther a location where I can pick and choose what files to download?

Thanks for the help

EDIT:

Just had a bit of a nosy around the forum, woul downloading the mn_zpack for herehttp://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,39905.0.html
and dropping the files in the correct folder(assuming its is the music folder ) solve the issue??

To fix this problem:
1. Run the Installer. It'll say it's out-of-date. Get the new version from the page it sends you to.
2. Open up FreeSpace2\Installer\installedversions.txt and delete the following lines, then save it.
Code: [Select]
NAME
FreeSpace2 Retail Core
VERSION
Version 3
