I have my very own copy of FS2. It even more or less works, although cobbling disk 2 together was a right pain in the ass. However, I would rather play FS2-open, what with all the cool bells and whistles, and I'd like to do so with all the fancy shamancy media and movies.
As I understand it, one of my options is to download the media from the ftp server kindly provided, provided I intersect it at a time it is available. This is likely to take forever, twice-- once in the waiting, and once in the downloading, and seems wastefull, as I have all the media files _right here_, where, if only I knew how, I could generate my own, thus saving bandwidth for others and time and frustration for mysel. If I only knew how.
So how? I tried something called mve2avi version 2.4 and got results that were entirely crapulent, at either frame rate (the playback stutters, and the speed is wrong, and the audio has all kinds of issues). Is there another problem? Or am I just doing it wrong, as every girl I've ever met feels compelled to point out?
