Oh for goodness' sake  :lol:

Here is the file... not the original, but it seems to be working. red_glow.tga

I took the green_glow.tga, changed it to gray scale, back to RGB and set its color to red. GIMP is a good tool... even on Windows platform. Granted, it sometimes does weird things (specifically nagging about disk not being in drive at certain actions :nervous: ), but it gets the job done.
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

Re: "This is Lt. Ash, Terran Patrol, Wing Gamma, 3-9...
in the folder. where you installed fs1 port, there is a data folder. Go inside this folder and create two more folders called models and maps...so it looks like following

fsport/data/models
fsport/data/maps

Assuming "fsport" is the folder where fs1 port was installed.

Now place model file ".pof" to the models folder and everything else to the maps folder.
Should work the way...

Sorry, newb question here.  I installed the FSport, and it seems to work fine, but I'm not seeing an "fsport" folder anywhere.  It's in the fresspace 2 Folder right?  Or is it somewhere else, like in program files?

Edit:  Err, um, nevermind.  I just placed them in the FS2 folders and it works fine.  Great job, by the way.  :yes:  Now I just need to see if there's an upgrade for the GTF Valkyrie

Placing the FS1Port VPs in the main folder is a really bad idea. You basically prevent yourself from playing FS2 until they are removed again for one thing. That's why you should make a folder called FS1 port and add them to it. Then all you have to do is select the FS1port folder from the mods tab in the launcher to play.

How does it prevent you from playing FS2?  Doesn't the FSPort and the SCP use the same models?  I kinda thought that the FSPort was essentially an FS2 mod, you just add the original FS1 ships and briefings and mission and stuff.

It uses FS2 models yes but it has its own tables and data which overrides the FS2 equivalent in many cases. Just try playing the FS2 campaign with FS1 port as your selected mod and you'll soon see the game crash out with table errors or display otherwise odd behaviour. IIRC the Iceni appears as a GTF Ulysses for instance.

Ooh!  :jaw:  That's ugly!  Okay, I'll move those files to an fsport folder I'll create!

you need to read karajorma's FAQ Freespace Freak and set up all the mods you add as mod folders instead of just dumping them in the freespace main folder, it might work but it will cause problems down the road.

Okay, so just change the .ini folder to look for it in the new mod folder and that's it?  Sounds good.  I'll check it out when I get to it tonight.

The .ini should look for your mediavps folder.

You don't need to look for the mod itself as you specify that in the launcher but if you want the mod to use any extras you installed you have to tell it to search for them. That's why most mods have to look for the mediavps folder. Some mods have to be told to look for more than one mod folder but the system can handle that too.

It is is a mod... all mods (including the Media VPs) should go into mod folders, otherwise, it's a PITA to play multiplayer and you confirm yourself to the church of organizational messdom

Forgive me for asking, but the link for the newer version on page 4 seems to have stopped working. Anyone have a copy of the file they care to share?

Not surprising, considering that the reg_glow.tga file looks something like this to the game:


Just read it. I've already fixed this before. It's in the upcomming VP.

I've experienced an error with this model.  Now, perhaps this error is already fixed and I just never got the latest incarnation of this model, but it was causing some CTDs (even in debug mode) during end-of-mission warpout and death scenes, although not completely consistently, but frequently enough to be annoying.  Reverting to the default Apollo solved the problem.

Re: "This is Lt. Ash, Terran Patrol, Wing Gamma, 3-9...
I'll tell you what's even more annoying: only the left half of the Apollo receives any specular lighting, regardless of the directions of the light source.
Why is this so?
I have taken this model apart piece by piece, destoying all the lights, glowpoints, and everything in between and painstakingly recreating them from scratch, but still it behaves in an irritating and badly lit manner. I'm starting to think it has something to do with the textures.

HTL Apollo With Turambar's Maps?
No one seems to have it, and I don't think Taristin has it anymore either. Since woodentoyandgift is down, I don't know where else to download it. Any chance some lucky bastard who got it can repost it so I can download it? Thanks.
