The training missions are boring, but once you get past them it's fun.

That was a letdown.

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAARG

I ARISE FROM THE DEAD!!!

Sorry about being gone for the past couple months, I was overwhelmed by the horror known as Calc 4, and I needed to stay off HLP until my grade in the class was decided.

Now that it's decided (I failed, I'll re-take next quarter), I'm back.

If anyone's still having problems, could you re-post? I can't figure out whose problems have been fixed and whose haven't.

No problems with the installer itself, just n00bs missing OpenAL and the like.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Are there any other good mods that can be combined with installer that wont mess up the files (beside those that come with installer)?
Maybe "Inferno" or "The Babylon Project"?

It's best to keep TBP away from the Installer. It is a standalone after all. It works completely without the original FS2, hmm.

Yeah. And INFR1 is quite low-quality, except for the ships.

There's a couple more campaigns I want to add to the Installer, but I'll have to wait a week or two. I'm right in the middle of finals.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Okay, I can't find an installer in the openal download folder, and I'm not that good with computers. How do I install it?
You were searching from the OpenAL site? Aye, it can be a bit unclear. There is a link to the installer in my signature. It's the same installer, just hosted elsewhere.

Just download the installer, run it and click Next/Yes/always the most positive option until it informs you that OpenAL has been installed, hmm.

Why can't your Installer fetch that?  Can't one of the hosts just host the latest version?  Or is that illegal?  If so, could you have it download straight from the Creative site?  Just put it under "OpenAL for Windows" or something.  You might even want to make links for the Mac and Linux (source?) versions, IDK.

It's open-source, so it shouldn't be illegal.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
The main reason for not hosting\having a direct download is simple. It's one more thing to keep updated.

It does not look good to be pointing at a 3-4 month old OpenAL download.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I have a problem.
I installed retail Freespace 2 and then installer. It worked just fine so I burned the whole installation directory on dvd.
I wanted to verify that it works so I deleted the game from hard disc and then copy/paste it from dvd.
I chose "mediavps" mod and set all the features for the best graphics. And it works fine except for the background (stars, planets..).The background is like in retail version. There should be greater number o stars and better background texture, but there isn't (for example on first mission).
And also, Hercules fighters and Deimos corvettes doesn't appear  in target monitor when i lock on them.
So what's the problem?

Thought so. It's good to get it fixed now. Otherwise you would have been in deep **** on the first "Escort big ship through asteroid field" mission, hmm.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I am super pumped to have found this site and your installer. I was a huge fan of Freespace 1 & 2 when they came out and spent hours and hours playing and replaying the campaigns. Last night I was thinking of games to play (my love of WoW has finally begun to wane after 3 years) and I fondly recalled Freespace. Couple of google searches and here I am, and I'm super psyched to see that the game has been improved upon and expanded to such an extent - definitely look forward to trying the various mods and community designed campaigns. I plan on getting this installed soon and trying it out, and I'm sure I'll have some questions or need help. Thanks in advance and thanks for hosting the installer and all of this (presumably) fantastic content!

Cheers!

Thanks, I used the installer and have everything working (I had no sound at first, but I fixed that by getting Open AL), now I'm just waiting for my new joystick to show up (tried playing with a mouse, but it wasn't doing it for me) and I'll be in business. Probably going to focus on solo play at first to get my combat chops back, but after that, I'll definitely be interested in some multiplayer.

But man, watching that opening cinematic for the FSOne port brought me back. Such great games. Really looking forward to trying out some of the community-created campaigns too.
