Hi guys ,

Thanks for your great work

I only have a question:

Will we be able to create our own campaigns/missions with Fred or another mission ├ęditor/creator like it?

If we don't have freespace 2 anymore, where can we find this program again?

Thank you

Darkspy

 
There's a copy of FRED2_Open in the core package.

I made the readme included with the base available online.

Here's what I didn't see in the readme:

Does TBP REQUIRE a special build of FSO, or can we replace the included build with new ones?

TBP does not use special builds.

And it shipped with 3.5.6?  Just for future reference :D

In case you were interested, the game runs perfectly under a -mod command from the core FS2 directory.

And yes, I know you don't have to do that.

Yeah. I've been very tempted to do that myself so that I don't have to keep replacing exe's on both games whenever there is an update.

However considering that the team wanted to reach a wider audience I can understand why they went for a stand alone product :D

The question that now remains though is who is going to be the first to grab the VP files from MatthewPapa's GameWarden site or from the FTPs and run FreeSpace 2 as a TBP mod :lol:

I said it jokingly but now I come to think about it a little that is probably a better route than downloading the HotU build and upgrading that.

This way you start out with a game with full sound, music and high resolution support :D

Maybe, I've had trouble opening missions made with 3.6.5 though.
