Re: Totally confused -- need help with FS2 Open Project
Lucika, give us a screenshot of your main FS2 directory and the inside of your mediavps folder.

Here they are.

Re: Totally confused -- need help with FS2 Open Project
You have two Effects and Adv_Effects MVPs in your mediavps folder. I'm afraid that's the problem.

Also, I think there are a few unwelcome guests in your root FS2 directory. I'm not sure if they might cause additional problems, though...

Wrong. You are referring to the mp-710 files, which are patches to the 3.6.8 MediaVPs that he has. Not having them would be a problem.

Nothing unwelcome there. And most importantly, no unwanted .vp files in \freespace2\.

By unwelcome guest, do you mean the screenXXX files or the .md5 file?
Oh and Lucika, you can delete the 3.6.9.dmg file. In fact, any file ending with .dmg can be deleted in you pick up any more in the future.

.dmg files are associated with Mac or Linux right?



EDIT: It's also kinda ironic that with whatever language he is using, the VPs look they have VP Fail written under them. :lol:

VP fail  ;7 ;7 ;7

In fact, it is "fájl, with the meaning of "file" (hungarian).

Any tips about those "unwanted guests?"

Correct.

Either do what Grimper suggested or do nothing. Only extra .vp files would affect gameplay and since there are none, there is no specific need to delete any of the "unwanted" files, apart from doing a little aesthetic cleaning on the folder.

Oh, right...I thought they were old packages in conflict...

1) So, what should I erase other than the .dmg files?
2) Does FSO require better graphical card than the retail version? Because retal works absolutely fine for me, so I don't understand the problem.

1) Perchance those "screen" files.
2) Naturally. And as we have already established, S3 products generally suck arse quite thoroughly. Installing the latest drivers might help, but there are no guarantees.
