Re: Freespace 2 Download Links
Don't worry about the actual file name, just tell the Installer to get what you need.  It will not list the actual file names, it will say something like, "FreeSpace2 Retail Music files" instead of "warble_fs2.vp".

*grumbles something unintelligible*

It's not understandable because you don't know how table files work.   Look up table files in the wiki and in Karajorma's FS FAQ.  Then tell me if you understand what they are saying.

I"ll give you a boost: http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/Tables

BTW, kara's FAQ is under "External Sites", listed as FreeSpace FAQ.

EDIT: And, in case you were wondering, to find that in the wiki, you just search for:

table files

Re: Freespace 2 Download Links
NO!! Don't edit that!  *bites nails, spits them onto keyboard*  Go read kara's FAQ and get back to me after your done with his section on table files.

EDIT: I'm not mad at you, just trying to make a joke... :nervous:  sorta.  :D

EDIT2: After I get back from work in about 3-4 hrs I will check back here, OK?

 
Re: Freespace 2 Download Links

Re: Freespace 2 Download Links
That was right.  Ok, basically a table file resides inside one of your .vp files, usually.  Now, if you're going to change that table, then you have to create a new table file outside the .vp... darn this is going to be confusing for you.  I think I'm going to go to sleep & try to explain this when I get up.  In the slim chance that you'll be able to understand a brief explanation, here goes:

A table file contains settings for a particular set of objects in FS.  (example, ships or weapons).  ships.tbl would contain a ship's max speed, max AB speed, accelleration, vertical / horizontal slide speed (if any), etc, etc.  These table files are normally stored inside a .vp file, and while they are there they cannot be changed.  But, you can extract a copy of them to the correct directory (inside the vp files, there are directories.)  The correct on in this case is ships.tbl.  Now, these tables also have settings for if a player is allowed to fly the ship.  So, if you extract a copy of ships.tbl to \FreeSpace2\data\ship.tbl & change the values, you can play as the Shivans   (Well, at least fly their ships.)

Poor bloke!  :(

You'll have to find a harder to find little world of your own somewhere. Either that or get a shed at the bottom of the garden!  :yes:

Re: Freespace 2 Download Links
I probably would have  been better off if I'd gotten lost in my own little world somewhere where the kids didn't run constantly LOL

I have a basement, I wonder if changing the door hinges around would throw them off for a day or two?

Re: Freespace 2 Download Links
Use Turey's Installer, and just get the Retail Stuff.  But getting the .exe files for SCP wouldn't hurt, even if your computer's old... but if you don't want them, you don't have to.



For retail, get the red circle.  But you should be able to get the green one, too.  *shrugs*  It's up to you.  Oh, and

:welcome:

You have a horrible desktop! I could never live like that. There are these cool windows things called folders, you know...

Since you've posted Col, get that marquee out of your sig. The HTML to do that ceased being cool about 2 weeks after the first browser to support it appeared and we're not even counting welcomed newbies any more anyway.
