if you want you  can host these files on my ftp ftp://tounge.zapto.org just login Anonymously

 
dunno how many have access to a *nix machine, but it has a nice bare bones FTP client in it.  Ofcourse, there are a few problems with this little post..
One : Most people use Windows, but you guys have Filezilla :P
Two : Most who use *nix prolly already know how to use it's FTP client.

The nice thing is, though, ftp is automatically in passive FTP mode.  And it doesn't auto-reconnect.

If you don't know how, just go to a terminal (windowed or crtl+alt+f#) and type

ftp username@gaming.playnow.ca 6969

and hit enter.  (for the anon's, it just ``ftp freespacer@gaming.playnow.ca'')

from there, it will ask for your password.  Input the password (it won't show up) and hit Enter.  (For freespacer's, you just hit enter there.)

There'll be a few messages including a "We're back!!" thing.  You're in.
From there, type

ls

and hit enter to get a list of files and directories in the current directory.
Each line 'll look something like this :

drwxr-xr-x   1 ftp      ftp             0 Oct 05  2003 Freespace_2_VP_files

All that stuff is:
"drwxr-xr-x" This indicates that it is a directory.  You can 'cd' to it.
"-rw-r--r--" or "-rwxr-xr-x" This indicates that it is a file.  You can 'get' it.

From there, type

cd dir_you_want_to_go_to

EG, if I wanted to go to the "Freespace_2_VP_files" dir, I simply type

cd Freespace_2_VP_files

and hit Enter.  It will spit out some stuff like
250 CWD command successful. "/Freespace_2_VP_files" is current directory.
That just says "It worked.  You are at...".  Now, ls again, and cd to the dir of the files you want.
Now, to get all those files, you need to make sure you're in binary mode.  This is simple, too.  Type

bin

and hit enter.
Next, you may find it just a /bit/ convenient to turn off the prompt (so you won't be bugged every time one of the segments finishes ;)  Just type

prompt

and it should say that something was turned off.  Now, you can grab the files.  Let's say I wanted to grab the sparky_hi_fs2.vp files.

cd sparky_hi_fs2_vp
ls

Well, there's a lot of files in there, starting with ``sparky_hi_fs2.part01.exe'' and ending with ``sparky_hi_fs2.part33.rar''.  Well, we don't want to have to get all of them, sooo....

mget sparky_hi_fs2.part*.*

Now wait just a darned tootin' minute!  Where'd that mget command come from?!
mget is for ``mass get''.  The astrisks are special characters that can stand for any number of any characters.  There fore, all the numbers will be accounted for, and so will both `exe' and `rar'.  Nifty, eh?

Oh, you want to get root_fs2?  You can just use the regular get, there.

get root_fs2.exe

Easy.
After that, you just wait, since it /will/ take a while.
If you forget about it after it finishes and idle too long, you get logged off the server automatically.

To exit ftp, just type

bye

and ftp will say "bye bye..." and quit.

Questions?  Comments?  Things I forgot?  This is by no means a super tutorial, and I don't know how many of you 'll actually benefit from this, but there you go.

Enjoy!

edit : misspelled "prompt"... silly me... <.<

Suprnova.org is serving Freespace2 and freespace1+xtra's (original retail CD sets) (2GB and 1.6GB). Although i was able to download them, i saw there are very few seeds left.

I keep getting a CRC error on sparky_hi.
So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

If you have the full install there is nothing much unless you want the avi versions of the cutscenes so you can see them in FS2_open.

INFORMATION UPDATED FEB. 8, 2004 1436EST

------------------------------------
SERVER STATUS: ONLINE
------------------------------------


The VP files and movies on the FTP server have been removed.

This had to be done because of interplay's decision to re-release FS2 to reap a pretty penny off us [not that you weren't paying more if you wanted to buy a used copy, but I still feel like complaining].

Here's where you can get FS2

Sorry guys. But what can you do. Contact me if you require some more information.

I'm planning to put the FTP server to use as a file store for SCP installable packages that I'll put together.

Cheers!

Did you get a notice from Interpay?

Anyhow i guess those 2000 copies they plan will be out of stock soon and hopefully the FTP can be online again. (does this put straight that they still own the rights for FS2 (if they re-re-release it))

I don't think that HotU or Fractux got a warning. But sometimes it's better not to wait. Since Interplay are selling copies from their website again it could hardly be considered abandonware anymore could it?

Well from the link to the store i get that it is a
One-Time-special-"20th-aniversary"-2000-copies-only-edition
i hardly call that a re-release. I guess it is best to keep FTP low
for a while...

Cool. Btw, Fractux, you've probably noticed that stuff has reached a new stage with 3.6 - it's closer than ever. We're getting there... by the time it's ready, this Anniversary Edition may even be out of print. ;)

I'm just going to add a dump of all the files on the server every time I update, so people can peruse what's on there.

With the FS2 stuff down for now, there's not much traffic anyways.

Thanks, Fractux.

I forgot if I'd mentioned this already (or if anyone else has), but for the FTP-uninitiated, you can simply use IE's FTP client to get to Fractux's archive; simply stick this address in your address bar and you're there.

Juat as a side note, when I was fooling around trying to make an installable package, I made a media VP containnig all of the "finished" on Milliways (Lightspeed's site), so, well, just telling anyone who would be interested in grabbing it, since the 3.56c VP is a bit out of date.

I made this on my own, it's not an unofficial SCP vp. Just making that clear.

It's 25MB compressed - 175 Uncompressed.

Cheers!

If this contains Lightspeeds new weapons I very strongly reccomend making a new folder called Enhanced (or something similar) and using the -mod switch to point at it. You'll get all sorts of problems if you don't most likely.

no, I didn't put any of his weapons mods in the VP, only the planets, shinemaps, glowmaps, 32bit textures. bobs-lights thrusters, and the ani perseus gowmap.

I didn't put in any of the WIP stuff.

I'm currently rewriting the Wiki to explain how to install FS2_Open. My life would be much easier if this was the default media.vp rather than 356. :)

What do the SCP guys say? Put it up for download?

Hi All,

Would like some advise...got both FS1/ST, finally found a copy of FS2 and now have FS2_open. Naturally I want to play the open version...now what would be the best course of action to see the movies too...ask nicely? lay low and wait till they're back up?  Guess they'll reappear eventually, but like to ask anyway...
