Have the corrupted VPs in the installer been fixed yet?

Go ask Turey, but he hasn't been around since January the last time I checked his profile.

As I've understood it, Zacam will reupload the MediaVPs once (FSO) 3.6.10 is released.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Well, I have Vista 64 and tried this installer and none of the content seems to work (FS 2 retail still just works).
The installer first asked, for some reason, for me to click on a folder (without option to browse yet) with only one option available:
c:/Games/Freespace 2 or something, so I clicked on it out of no other choice, then it allowed me to browse to the location of were the retail, dowloaded and installed FS2 from gog.com was and it downloaded put oodles of stuff there.
The launcher and other apps say OpenAL32.dll was not found.

Sounds like you need to install OpenAL! It's required for the sound and graphics.

Dude, thanks -- I got the OpenAL per your advice and sig, but as far as the post-install notes, I don't mean to be a blockhead, but I never found them. I just see an old readme from FS2 and a bunch of new stuff that's not .txt, .pdf. etc.

the new launcher works... now, if I can just get the game to see my dang joystick which it still doesn't seem to do

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
They come up on the installer after it says "Done".

As for the stick, the stick options are under the "Audio" tab.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I'm sorry for possibly being an idiot, but I can't seem to get the installer to work. I installed Freespace 2 retail into a directory I chose, I pointed the installer to that directory, click next, and.... nothing. It's just blank with the progress stuck at 0%. I'm running Win7 x64 RC.
What's the simple thing I'm missing?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Hmm. Could be the installer site being down. Unfortunately, it doesn't give out error reports, AFAICT. My only suggestion would be to try again later, or install the FS2_Open goodies manually (Or use the offline installer packages).

Error logs show up in <FreeSpace2 Folder>/Installer. Please post installer_error.log.txt and installer_status.log.txt

Thanks Turey. Your statement gave me some good clues, and I was able to get it to work. Now for my next issue. When I choose to download "The Works", it says that a config file from "http://www.axemspace.com/files/install/axem.txt" could not be found and that the installation might not work, but the missing files could be downloaded later. I tried accessing that address through my browser, but indeed I got a 404 webpage not found error. What files is that referring to? Can I manually add them afterward?

I'm not sure why that file is down, Axem seems to be doing some strange things with his website. It includes the Just Another Day campaigns, as designed by Axem, and they can be manually added afterward like any other mod.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
what's the status of the installer as of now? I notice that on the front page of this thread, it is stated that it contains 3.6.9, yet on the website it says 3.6.10.
Fun while it lasted.

Then bitter.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
There are far too many places where the same information is listed... and not all those places are kept to the same level of up-to-date-ness.

The website is correct; the installer contains 3.6.10.

 
Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I think I have version 10 of Freespace's installer, I haven't downloaded or updated since my last post on this thread, and so far everything is running 5X5

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Ok, so I'm having a couple issues with the installer (If there is another thread for installer problems, feel free to direct me to it, I could not find it)

When trying to install certain parts (homesick mod, fs1 cutscenes, multiplayer missions, and multiplayer voices) it fails. (The installer finishes it just gives me the "you may need to run the installer again because there was an error with this section warning)

When I looked at the error log, I found it had thrown a FileNotFound Exception (no files at the requested sites)

So while this isn't a huge deal, could someone either point at an updated installer (If I missed it) or tell me where these various files can be located and where I need to put them in my FreeSpace2 directory for this to work (I looked at the manual install guide but it was missing where to put cutscenes and multiplayer stuff)

Any other suggestions/courses of action I can take to fix this would be great as well

(Note:  These happened with installations on both WinXP and Win7, and trying win& with and without compatibility mode turned on)

I attached the WinXP log to this post

Thanks!

That's weird cause when I use the installer it always puts everything in the right place.
