WHERE CAN I BUY THIS GAME?
I have an old copy that Im currently playing but disk 2 is corrupt.  I remember reading that the game was going to be re-released but havent been able to find it available anywhere.  Any ideas?  I would love to purchase the game for my collection again.

Well, you could waste 43 bucks and buy from Interplay.

Or you could ask somebody for the disk two ISO. I know somebody around here has it.

You can get it semi legally sine the EULA lets you burn copies for your friends as long as you gain no profit from the ordeal.

:welcome:

Exits are to your right and left, and flamethrowers are under your seat. Be careful, though, as they are sometimes filled with water, so bring your own Napalm or try to club someone with the non-working shotguns in the weapon closet. Also, be careful while wandering the ventilation shafts. If you see a large, five-limbed creature that looks really pissed, it’s probably Carl, give him your lunch and he'll hopefully go away. In the event of an emergency, the n00bs will be the last to get into the escape pods, if there’s any room left. The Plasma rifles in the forward locker are released only under authorization of an Admin, [V] God, or hyperintelligent shade of the color blue. Oh, and whatever you do, don't mention the word Freespace followed by the number 3.

And don't ask why either...the others (gestures with head at the venerable ones) don't like it much.

On a more serious note, you can but FS1 & 2 together at Amazon, hhere

Not according to the back of the manual, though ("you may not copy the software except that you may make a single copy for backup purposes only.  You may not load, sell, rent, lease, give, sub-license or otherwise transfer the software (or any copy) unless expressly permitted to do so")

Of course, that same statment implies that making mods (derivative works, i.e. using Volition textures for example) is also forbidden.

My copy didn't come with a manual, so I never even saw anything like that.

Maybe it's a .pdf file on your disk. :rolleyes:

No, no PDF file on any of the disks.  Nor was there anything manual-like about the packaging.

Read the file EULA.txt - that's the real legal mumbo jumbo that matters. It also appears during installation, so its the real thing you have to accept before using the game.

Or you could just get the HOTU version and tear the necessary files out of it.

AFAIK When the source code was released, you could share the game with friends and acquaintences. Since this guy already owns the game, I can't see Interplay or [V] being the least bit concerned. Interplay, at least, have far bigger things to worry about at the moment ;)

Why is is always disk 2 that's corrupt? Out of all the requests we get for one disk about 90% are for Disk 2. Disk 3 gets used almost as much by the game so why is it? :)

What is the current status of interplay BTW? Anyone know? Are they 6 feet under yet?

Yes, I think so.


And Kegel...

Welcome to HLP!

Exits are to your right and left, and flamethrowers are under your seat. Be careful, though, as they are sometimes filled with water. If this is the case, try to club someone with the non-working shotguns in the weapon closet. Also, be careful while wandering the ventilation shafts, because sometimes Carl the Shivan lurks in there. If you happen to come across him, just toss him your lunch and hope that it satisfies him. If it doesn’t… pray. In the event of an emergency, you can and will be used as a flotation device.  The Plasma rifles in the forward locker are released only under authorization of an Admin, [V] God, and/or hyperintelligent shade of the color blue. Oh, and whatever you do, don't hit on Tiara, no matter how good of an idea it might seem.


Try to see if you can still get it off HOTU... that might work.

Mal: This is the captain. We have a little problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and then... explode.

Actually, Disk 3 doesn't necessarily get used as much.  I'm not entirely positive, but I think the main campaign does use both disks about equally, when you have to use them to even start the next mission.  However, after you're done with the main campaign, you can use just one disk to start it up.  I know I usually used just Disk 2.
