What's going to happen if someone on Linux or MacOS X wants to use this pack?

hmm, a good question, There is people using MAC?, about linux... I will check it, but is should no problem. I think, everyone that uses linux as only OS, should use wine or something like, but I going to check it first...

People having Linux or Mac should not able to play which the pack anyway, those are the Windows CVS... Damn, I have Linux on my other HD, I dont have on hand... I should check if the .exe can be use on wine....

And dont forgave about the OpenAL....

Making this a windows only package is huge retrograde step in my opinion. Before you only needed to get rid of the windows executables and add ones for your platform and you were good to go.

mmm ok, lets make the things in other way... a .rar and the installer vercion, is not problem for me, I just upload time...

I know is not sense to have both, but is not a problem if is a direct download, and the Installer... Well I like it :P is a good avance, the problem is the OS compatiility, But I still think that Linux users could use it which an emulator like wine...

Well, it's also not fair to sacrifice operability in order to maintain cross-compatibility.  That's a worse option to deny Windows users an installer.

Put it in a rar and add a setup file if there is anything you need to do beyond sticking everything in a folder. Best of both worlds.

Re: Download Freespace 2 SCP Pack v1.5c (Complete) by ShivanSpS
is not problem I found a solution :D

The pack will come which an Windows installer, but the .exe is a 5MB file which only a few files needed to make shotcuts, the rest of the files are in a .zip, the installer unzip those and put then in the install folder, any other user/s having other OS that cant use the .exe, the only that they have to do is to unzip the file manualy.. I have add a how-to.txt which instructions...

Re: Download Freespace 2 SCP Pack v1.5c (Complete) by ShivanSpS
I have yet to see a modular or scripted rar installer.  If you know of one, tell me, I'd be interested.  If you don't, I wouldnt be surprised.  I hate SFX with a passion.

Anyway, with non-MSI installers, it would be fairly easy to use the same package, but just a different executable or script for linux/OSX.  I see many installers use bzip or lzma compression, both of which are easy to deal with under any OS.  Hell, I might conjur up a solution...  But that would require some effort on my part, so don't hold me to it :p.

EDIT:  Or ShivanSpS can do it :D.

I making the final tests now, and filefront is back online...

I no know why, but Winrar insist in corrupting my files, and Ican make split parts in winzip, because, winrar does not support .zip split parts...

I hope this be not a problem :P

Thanks Shivan, I currently got my current installation working after a small hicup in the FS1 campain.  Not sure of whats changed but I figure I have enough hard drive space to download the latest version and then when its done get rid of the old one.  Great Job getting this up finally.  Its funny though...Its easy to tell what IP address you are using.  :)  Though Im not getting as fast speeds as I would have expected from you guess you must be seeding a lot.

Oh well, estimated download time is 16-21 hours but atleast I have my current installation to keep me happy, and AP tests at school to ruin my fun.

ALSO:  To anyone needing a bittorent client, I currently use ABC bittorent http://pingpong-abc.sourceforge.net/ , for me it works its simple and has just basic features.  Its simple to use and easy to install and run.  Just remember if your going through a router to unblock the port, it makes a Huge difference.

Is the only thing that I have in Bitcomet, and I uploading at 28 KB/s that is my max Upload speed.... (for the first pack in the moment of launch it, my max upload has been 12 KB/s...)

Yeah, I finally find a site that host files for free and allow FTP upload :D, now I divided the broadband in two 50 and 50 betrem Bicomet and CuteFTP... But we need to keep the torrent, because the torrent give publisity and new people, that is why I also wish to upload to filefront, but their not allow me :( they deleted the file that I just uploaded.. :( Im sending a mail to filefrom resqueting an explanation, and a copy of that king of FS2 EULA :P You can make copies to your friends.... XD

EHHHHMMMM!

Someone should spellcheck the whole package though.
ShivanSpS, you've done a wonderfull job; however your grammar is a tad coarse...let us help with the raw edges, so the end product can be smooth and shiny.

Okay! Adding the torrent to the headless torrent queue on my Linux box :D

I'll take down the older version in a few days (Uploaded about 30-odd gigs!), but someone still seems to be downloading it high speed!
Will leave the other torrent with the OpenAL stuff running...

Oh ouch, I just DLed 1.0 two nights ago, and didn't see this one! I'm going through Derelict atm, someone mentioned bad voice files?
Anyways, I guess it's not too bad as I'll have to figure out where to get stuff anyways.

I had grabbed FS2 the year it came out, was super excited when I saw it on the shelf. Usually I'd just pop in here or volitionwatch from time to time to see what's up, never was very active. The last time I tried out SCP was 3.6.5 and quickly stopped as I didn't have time to deal with all the crashes and glitches and my video card wasn't that good... and I couldn't get it to look that good. So, from my perspective it's really been straight from FS2 Stock to SCP 3.6.7 and the contrast is absolutely shocking. It looks great!

So, is there a map of links to the various DLs? If not I'll do one, since i'll be going there anyways. Do you guys think that would be helpful for new people?
