I was watching the latest BSG earlier today and I thought; hmm , I sure would like to shoot some baddies out of the sky too
so got my old freespace discs from under the dust and installed them , then just before I hit play I figured I'd check for updates or something
then I found this forum, and wooaa !!
so I read up on all this new freespace open stuff, you guys sure have been busy these past 6 years !
so now I'm trying to get all of this working together first I'd like to play the Descent: FreeSpace missions and then play the other mission chronologically (freespace2,expansions,user created content), seeing as it's all running under the same engine I'd like to do this as if it was just one big game
so far here's what I've done
from the FreeSpace Wiki's Installing fs2 open
I got the following files the launchermv_core, mv_textures, mv_music, mv_models, mv_effects, mv_adveffectsand the AMD64 optimized 3.6.7 build
then I uncompressed Launcher.exe, fs2_open_367_p4.exe and fs2_open_367_p4.map to my freespace2 directory (C:\USR\games\FreeSpace2)
after that I created a new directory (C:\USR\games\FreeSpace2\fs2) and I uncompressed mv_core.vp, mv_textures.vp, mv_music.vp, mv_models.vp, mv_effects.vp and mv_adveffects.vp in it
then for the descent freespace content I went to The Freespace Port
and I got the following files
now at this point I hope that I have everything I need to run the freespace 1 and 2 campaings right ?
next I'll download user created material...Freespace Port 2.3Awakeningssparky_hi_fs1fsport_hi-resfsport_glowfsport_shinewarble_fs1All CBANIsAll Voice FilesAwakenings Voice Files
and the three multiplayer missions Black Omega
, Clash of the Titans
and Eve of Destruction
then I created a new directory (C:\USR\games\FreeSpace2\fs1) and I uncompressed the files awakenings.vp, fs1demo.fs2, fs2mc1.fs2, fs2mc2.fs2, fsport2_3.vp, fsport_glow.vp, fsport_hi-res.vp, fsport_shine.vp, sparky_hi_fs1.vp, stu_fs1.vp, tango_fs1.vp and warble_fs1.vp in it
