Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Meh... not looking for another installer right now.  hehe  Bout to take a trip home for a week, so getting into something like that right now would be counter productive.  But the new models interest me, and I'm curious as to the effects of the .tbl file and what all that does.

Any clues?  How about where I can get those model files outside of Shivan's pack?

There is some error in how the cutscenes play, I think I can find that link.

Don't know about the ships, you'll have to search for them, or ask at the fsport thread.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
The .jar file didn't need to be updated, but Macintosh Universal Binaries for 3.6.9 Final have been added. Still not completely sure if all the cross-platform stuff works.

For everyone who's been complaining about the lack of user-friendlyness, this paragraph is for you. I understand it's a pain to have to use a .jar file. I understand that it is really annoying to have gone from having a very nice GUI to having to look at the Command line. Rest assured, now that 3.6.9 is out and I've got cross-compatibility fixed, I'll have plenty of time to work on User-friendlyness. Expect the next couple of updates to go a long way towards making things easier for new users.

Tired of the .jar files?

Try out the new Installer .exe!

This is just a test. If anything doesn't work, tell me.

The .exe doesn't need the Java Utilities - hell, it doesn't even need Java!

Doesn't work yet. It pops up a window that disappears immediately.

So, I copied it to root and ran it from cmd (after shortening the name) to see what I could see.

****. Haven't used this before, will take a look at that.

EDIT: Link updated, try it now.

I know it's 20MB. You want small, go with the .jar. You want user-friendly, go with the .exe. Besides, 20MB is small compared to downloading the JRE, which you would need to do for the .jar if you didn't have it. Also, the mediavps are huge, so 20MB won't make all that much of a difference.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
The links that get the mve cutscenes from mydatabus failed in the java installer.  Don't know how long they've been dead.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
mydatabus stinks. I have good ones in my sig. If there's too much text to wade through, search on cutscenes.  ;7

Wow. I just logged onto mydatabus and I got this message:

I guess the Installer is too popular for its own good.  :nod:

I'll see what I can do about moving those files. In the meantime, use the .ogg movies instead.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I couldn't get The Babylon Project off of mydatabus for days. It seems to cap out every day. I can't find out what their limit is and I guess it's immaterial---they have a cap and it's reached quickly.

I know the good thing about mydatabus is the direct linking, I'm keeping my eyes peeled for an alternate.

BTW I uploaded TBP to another site that doesn't have caps, it took me 5 1/2 hours.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
It's ok.  I got the ogg vp files from Huggy's guide, and the mve's I just copied from my retail CDs (forgot they were just sitting in the filesystem and not hidden in some installer cab file).

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
chief1983, you probably know this, but in case someone else doesn't:

Save yourself some hard drive space. The ogg's and the mve's do the same thing, so you only need one or the other.

I like the oggvp files that Hunter made. One is for FS1, one is for FS2, so 2 files will replace 20 and work perfectly.

The only reason to get the 20 files is if you want to view them outside the game, but that's cheating. Play the game and EARN the right to view them I say.  :D

PS I'm uploading the iso's for three FS1 CD's now. Glad I got them before all the servers went down. When I'm done in 15-20 hours I'll post the links in my guide, natch. Plus I 7zipped them so they'll be much smaller than the previous iso downloads.

Do you have JRE 1.5?

I saw that error message on a mac that didn't have JRE 1.5.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
People who have mods included in the Installer:

With the exception of Axem, who's already done this, you all need to go to http://www.fsoinstaller.com/files/installer/java/ , find the text file that contains your mod, mirror it somewhere, and post a link to it. If you want to change the contents, go ahead, but I will still need the link.


People who have mods but haven't included them in the Installer:

Make a text file that will download your mod by following the instructions here, then post a link. The Installer is run over 100 times a day, and that's HUGE exposure for your mod.

This was pretty much my reason of compiling them into a VP, it keeps everything from looking cluttered. And if you wanted to view the ogg cutscenes and have the VP, you can just double click the movie in vpview and it will open it right up, that is if you have the right codecs, or a player to play the oggs.

Nothing. I'm still working (or goober is still working, depending on if he gets time to do it before I finish learning how to do GUIs) on the GUI for the new version. So, for now, It's still command line. Simply type in C:\Games\FreeSpace2 and it should work.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Ok trying the installer for the first time.  Was already runnng 3.6.9 final and chose the update option.  Seems to be working fine execpt it told me my FS2_Open and debug .exe files were out of date.  Any idea what would cause this?
