B: Put it in it's proper place in your FSO folder. (don't know where this is)


I think that would be \FreeSpace2\fsport\data\missions  (assuming you have fsport installed to "fsport" under FreeSpace2, which you should have)
But would that load it as a multi mission?

Sorry if this has already been said, but I ran a couple of searches and drew nothing up.

Whilst I was using the installer I was thinking "Great! I'll be able to play one of my favourite games once again!" But after few hours I was beginning to wonder how much longer it was going to take, as there seemed to be no real way of telling the overall percentage complete.

How feasable is it to re-work the installer to include a "percentage complete" bar?

That's what I've wondered. Should be simple, tally files selected, log amount downloaded.

It's not nearly that simple. It would require re-writing most of the parsing code. You're welcome to code it yourself, the source is on the website.

Don't play with Tureys installer, it works fine on my computer and I like things that work fine on my computer. I had vista and Tureys installer didn't work on my rig, it was a problem with the computer, I have since fixed teh problem by upgrading from vista to XP ( yes I said upgrade), now Tureys installer work again, please leave it to work again :)

I'm not entirely sure where to post this, but since I've been using the installer I think this is the most appropriate place (and I have searched for threads about it), but the OpenAL download site seems to be down.
I try the link at the bottom of the site for the windows installer or the windows SDK but nothing happens.  I can download the source code, but havn't the foggiest how I'd use that.

Hmm. Has it been down for long? If not, give it some time and maybe it'll eventually be back up.

Can you say :necro: ?

And if you hate Vista, why do you have it in your sig?

Oh man I feel stupid, thanks for pointing that out brother, I completely overlooked that being there I'll probably have it changed by the time you read this so. thanks again :)

Oh hey.

I was working on something completely unrelated, when I realized I didn't have the latest version of PCS2.

So once I downloaded it, I decided I should share the wealth.

so PCS 2.0.1 is now included in the tools section. Hope it works.

The installer has an option to install "Tools". Basically stuff like the FS2Net Game Viewer, PCS2, VPView, ModelView, stuff like that.
