Hello there! I have recently finished putting together a retro Windows XP PC using this as a starting point:https://youtu.be/-XTnL4Mang0
I have a geforce 8800 GTX, 8gb DDR2 Ram, 4x WD Raptor 10000rpm hard disk drives and a Sound Blaster X-fi sound card.
It's completely overkill, and I'm completely in love with it. I have a bunch of 2000s era games loaded up on it, and they all work extremely well, with the exception of FSO.
I downloaded the base game from GOG, installed it, and all is well. I then downloaded FSO19.0.0 (which I believe is the last XP compatible build), and then the MediaVPs 3.6.12.
When play vanilla FSO, the frame rate is fine, but as soon as I add the MediaVP, the frame rate just crashes through the floor. All the cutscenes and game menus work fine - it's just that as soon as you go ingame, the world slows right down.
The only thing I could think of was that OpenGL was not working correctly, so I tested that on my PC and got 3-400 fps on a OpenGL tester. Also, FSO states it is v19.0.0 OpenGL in the main menu, so all seems to be well there.
I'm sure I'm doing something obviously wrong, but i just can't see it right away. Can anyone help me shine a light on where to start troubleshooting?
