Yes... if that doesn't work, then ask kara for his directions on how to remove buggy old versions of OpenAL; they conflict with the newest versions.

2) Your OpenAL install is corrupt (Windows users check Windows\System32 for either ct_oal.dll or nvopenal.dll. These are the OpenAL 1.0 .dlls and they are causing the screwup. Delete them and run the OpenAL installer (RunMeFirst) again. ). If that doesn't work try deleting OpenAL32.dll and wrap_oal.dll and then running the RunMeFirst file again.
3) You (windows users only) selected something other than Generic Software from the Launcher's Audio tab. Switch it back.

I think 2) is the likely cause but 3) is worth checking anyway. I really ought to write those up somewhere on here as I'm posting it entirely too often. :)

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
eh, except, instead of "runmefirst", run the OpenAL Installer again... the OAL installer was named "runmefirst" for BtRL, which is kara's guide he just posted.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
No sill it is unable to read flag file, on the features tab of the lanucher it is still empty. And only the ships appear in game. i.e no asteriods.
Making the Rebels & Renegades'  undo able. I've downloaded the open al 1.1 core sdk from there website, and has not helped. Following the advise from
karajorma but it has changed nothing. Any idea as to what is wrong.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
It's not the SDK you want but the runtime. Although I'd expect installing the SDK would install the runtime (It's bloody ages since I did it myself since OpenAL is now in CVS and I don't need the SDK).

My advice is to delete the launcher6.ini and then see what happens when you run the launcher. If you see a flags.lch file delete that too. I suspect that will kill the error if it's the problem I think that it is.

If it doesn't fix the problem give me the version number of the launcher and FS2_Open (should be 5.5c and 3.6.9). You should also check your Windows\System32 folder and tell me which of the files I mentioned above are present.

You should also wish follow the procedure mentioned here and post the first 30 or so lines. That would definitely rule out OpenAL as the cause of your problems.


The asteroids problem is a separate issue and is caused by you not having jpg and tga textures enabled. You can easily turn them back on in the launcher once you can get it to work.

@kara: SDK does install runtime... so it's not that.  (I've installed SDK b4, had no problems...)

I don't think the problem is OpenAL to be honest. I think it's a bad launcher initiation that's the issue, probably due to a corrupt launcher6.ini.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I downloaded this with your installer and can't find it on my comp.

I found it in My Docs but it's only 1.17 MB and tells me I can't run it out of a root directory.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Oy.  Where did you tell the Installer to put it?  The default is C:\Games\FreeSpace2  Did you change that?  If so, what to?

You should be able to use Launcher.exe located in your c:\games\freespace2 directory.  Try that.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
So, you changed the Installer directory to your "my documents" directory?  hmm.  And you have no freespace folder in my documents?  what I'm asking is, is the launcher.exe file located in your my documents dir or my documents\freespace2 or similar?  Where exactly is it?
