Oh and one more thing, can i put the mod folders like DerelictSCP, Transcend etc in a folder of their own for example  one called mods.

At the moment you can't. In the future you will be able to.

Well I bit on this again.  I completely removed all of my old SCP stuff from the first shivansps packs since they were having issues.

I Downloaded the new update and reinstalled the v1.5c, 1.5c-1.6 update, and then the 1.6-1.8 update and MY GOD.  Everything runs perfectly using the 4/29 build.  SAH runs great, Inferno R1 runs great, FS2 runs great.  Fantastic job Shivan.  Can't wait for your next release.

Hi all, and thanks for the amazing work in all this!

I'm having a problem after installing the 1.8 update.  I download the 1.5c torrent no problem (been keeping it seeding too).  I installed that and played, with only an occasional crash, but nothing that can't be continued again.  It's great!

But now, after installing the 1.8 update, the game crashes during load.  I load from the launcher and click RUN, then the splash screen comes up, but it's like 4 times too big and goes off the bottom-right of the screen.

This is the debug info that gets pasted into the clipboard:
Code: [Select]
Error: bad DDS file compression.  Not using DXT1,3,5 cubemap.dds
File:D:\C++\Freespace\fs2_open\code\graphics\GrD3DBmpman.cpp
Line: 503
[This filename points to the location of a file on the computer that built this executable]

Call stack:
------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------

Can anyone advise?  I installed 1.8 into the same folder that 1.5c was installed into.  That's right, yes?

Cheers!

Just to clarify the above, I went back to fs2_open_r_Kara_20060429.exe and everything worked OK again.  Just realised that's what I needed to do, after reading the previous page of this thread.

I'm running Direct3D - tried OpenGL but immediately get the Blue Screen of Arrrgghhh when I click Run.

its because the D3D in the 17th build is broken. But will be better to find a solution to OpenGL, not only because  OGL is better, D3D is no more.

What drivers/card you are using?

Thanks for the reply!  I have a Toshiba Tectra S1 laptop, which has a 64MB Radeon 9000 card.  Low end I know, but it runs smooth in D3D.  Using the Omega drivers, v3.8.231.   v3.8.252 is out now, which I'll update to soon.  Omega drivers support OpenGL.. unfortunately since it's a Blue-Screen kind of error, it may be hard to find out why it's crashing..?

Run in OpenGL, it looks better, we've got a great coder supporting it and fixing it, and Direct3D for freespace_open anyway, is pretty much finished, unless we get some direct x coders with a lot of time jump in here.

In the launcher 5.4 SCP runs in opengl, even if you select D3D...

Anyway, I having the same problem in OGL which one of the lastest vercion of Omegas too, try the newer ones and see what happens.

If not work, search for the older vercion, personally I keep the 3.8.205, because those ones are great, 0 problems.

Re: Download Freespace 2 SCP Pack v1.5c (Complete) by ShivanSpS
Thanks guys.  I'll try the latest Omega in OGL, if that doesn't work then I'll try v3.8.205.  And I'll see if that solves the crashing problem with release 1.8, as only 1.5c is working atm.  If it works I'll let you know.

Run in OpenGL, it looks better, we've got a great coder supporting it and fixing it, and Direct3D for freespace_open anyway, is pretty much finished, unless we get some direct x coders with a lot of time jump in here.
Well I haven't had any luck... when trying to run in OGL, I get blue-screened as soon as I hit Run from the launcher.  Same result with all 4 combinations of Omega driver v3.8.231 and v3.8.252, with exe's Kara_20060429 and Kara_20060517.

It's like... AFAIK all FS2's BSD in OGL NMW, WTF?? :)

Success, I rebooted, and OGL is working now... Kara_20060517.exe and Omega v3.8.252

And no more intermittent crashes like I was getting with D3D. Played since last post without a single crash. yay! Thanks all.

Last time I played this game was in 2001, I got right up to the last few missions then had to leave it for a world trip.

Years later I returned home from the other side of the world, married and with a 2 boys.

The other week I found this SCP Pack and decided to finish Freespace. 5 years of waiting and what a ride. This game wasn't just developed... It was crafted and has now evolved.

Re: Download Freespace 2 SCP Pack v1.5c (Complete) by ShivanSpS
@ShivanSpS,

I've been trying to get some other people interested in the SCP by directing them to your installer.  It makes the process much easier for the uninitiated.  Thanks for your efforts.

Unfortunately, I'm having some trouble getting the 1.5c -> 1.8 update downloaded.  Oxyshare seems to recognize the download I'm looking for, but there is no link to the download anywhere on the page.  Is anyone else experiencing this?

I could just go home, burn my copy of the installer and update onto a DVD, and distribute it that way, but I don't see these people very often since we don't live in the same town.

Its there, is a little hard to find, and hostings like Filefront dont allow me to upload my pack, their delete my files, because is "piracy".

And Oxyshare is the only that allow FTP upload/700MB/unlimited files/unlimited downloads/file life 30 days of inactivity, for free. and their does not check files, only if reported.





and, about the next full vercion of my pack/update of the current one, I still lack of stuff, there is not a good CVS to use (the last good one has been the 9th), wait the alpha fix to mediavps (I do it myself, but I not sure if works 100% ok), the inferno mod update stills in nothing, and finally, both HTL iceni and Ravana still unfinished.

By the way, please, dont send me pms about this pack, there is nothing to say in private, and if you ahve any question to will be responded faster by posting here.

Gah!  I can't believe it was staring me in the face the whole time.  I even read the entire spiel on loans in the hopes I'd find the link embedded in the text.  [Peri feels sheepish]

Problem - the patch downloads don't seem to be working, I wait the 30 seconds for the download and then click download, and then I get a "File Not Found" error.

EDIT: Oops, my bad, seems that you can update 1.5c to 1.8 without the 1.6 patch  ::)
But the 1.5c - 1.6 patch is still down.
