Well, I was planning to get started today, but FRED2_Open (3.6.9 RC5) opened with some HTL error, and told me to add "-fredhtl" to the end of a shortcut. I did, it doesn't open. So....what do I do? Can I use retail?

Make a shortcut, rightmouse click on it and choose properties, go to the target box and change it to look something like this F:\Games\Freespace2\fred2_open_3_6_9.exe -spec -glow -env -jpgtga -fredhtl.

You only need the -fredhtl but the others won't hurt any unless you have a very basic PC.

Thanks, it worked that time. I think it's because I made the shortcut in the directory. I dunno, I always have trouble adding command lines to shortcut targets. :wtf:

Time for a new problem!  :lol: The mouse-over info box is just a white square. Is there a fix for this or is it just FS2_Open?

Mine works fine. What graphics card do you have?

ATI Radeon 9700 Pro.

EDIT: You wouldn't happen to have Misson 5 would you? I wanted to take a look at it since mine is the second part. The link in Braxis' thread is dead.

No idea why the pop up is white for you then. It woks fine for me.

In the meanwhile here's Braxis' mission. I can't remember if he completed it or not.

It might be worth cleaning up campaign 1 and releasing it. The missions from that one are mostly finished.

They weren't even started. The idea was to do them once one of the campaigns had been finished.

Well, campaign 1 was pretty well completed, I'm just not sure where all the missions are at the moment.

I have everything. After FS2_Open 3.6.9 and the BSG Demo are released I'll hopefully have some time to fix any remaining issues and release it.

I should have some time next week to have a final look at my finished mission (C1M4) if it needs more of a look at.  It deffinitly needs the background finished, but I think there was an agreement to wait for all the missions to be done till a background was decided on.

I think the idea was that if someone came up with a nice background we'd use that for all the missions in the same system. Feel free to give it a try if you want. :)

Well the first page should explain everything. Basically FREDders pick a mission and attempt to make it. After which someone plays it and tells them what could be improved.

If you don't want to make missions you can always review them. You'll learn just as much doing that :)

Go to the first page. All the missions are there. (Hidden by spoiler tags) simply pick a mission you think will challenge you and get to FREDding it.
