Hi, I have lurked and visited here at the overall site for some time but have been away due to unavoidalbe life things,
I have finally gotten a copy of FS1 retail, tho I think it is damaged and I am trying to restore it, restoring missing files and olders......
I am seeking advice on what is inside the files, and the file structure of FS1 if anyone can please assist me in this restoration i would greatly appreciate it, i think i am close,
but i think the install i have lacks some of the important files, such as the music, (what folder does it go in?) and the campaigns, and the voice briefings etc. I found some of the files I thnk I need on your site, but am not sure if i should re name them as the files in the install i have do not say fs1 but just end in vp?
In the Mission folder loaded by the install all there are are six files saying Backup.001, 002, etc. are these the campaign mssions? I found the mission file on your site but again i was not sure if it would work in the orignal game.
I am trying to rebuild a working copy of FS1 that I inherited on an old Damaged editon, I have most of the files I think but as I am not knowledgable about what is supposed to be there, and I dont want to try running it until I am sure enough is there to avoid damage this is what is present in the install
the orignal contents of the CD were 90.6 MB
CACHE 317 KB
11 7 kb PALLETTE FILES, BARRACKS, ETC...
DATA 266 MB
MISSIONS 22.4 KB
VOICE O KB

MOVIES 140 MB
( I created this file and put in the cutscenes, but am not sure if they will run from here)
I think I am missing the music, but am not at all sure, any help much appreciated, where I can
get missing files or if indeed any are missing. thanks veyr muchj
I do know about the excellent port of FS1 here, but am hoping to play through the original versions and then
move on to the great project here. it has taken some years to get this going as I had bone cancer and
three operations, but I am still kicking, sort of, and hope to be part of things here, i am slowly working up to
it so any help is much appreciated.
EDIT: Later on SAturday....after researching some more...........
I found the Freespace port site hosted here and found
the WARBLE file with the music, do I create a folder called MUSIC and put it in that?
Also the STU fsl, do does it go in the VOICE Folder, i am guessing, and is there a file list to say what goes where?
Also the TANGO fsl, i, do they go into a special folder too?
any help much appreciated. thanks
