I can't even figure out who or what he's referring to.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I just downloaded the installer and when I try to run it, it says the application failed to start because OpenAL32.dll was not found.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Yeah, I just figured that out. I should probably poke around for myself when I have problems rather than just ask for help. Especially when the solution is kinda obvious

EDIT: I'm gonna go ahead and blame this one on my hangover. I love college!

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Ah yes, that explains it. Drinking rocks. Well, apart from the hangover thing. Though I don't actually get hangovers. I just have to puke before I go to bed, and then I'm all bright-eyes the next morning.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Ok here's the deal. I already had FS2 installed so I ticked off the core items in the installer.

First I got the OpenAL error, but fixed it.

First question:

What exe should I use? There's like 7 of them? I'm guessing fs2_open_3_6_9.exe? (that's what I've used)

Second:

Now I get this error:

"Error initializing graphics: Can't understand 'VideocardFs2open' registry entry!"

Then it asks me to run fs2_open launcher (which one is that?) or download the latest launcher (link does not work).


edit nvm: I must be blind. I didn't see Launcher.exe  :rolleyes:

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
:welcomered:

fs2_open_3_6_9.exe is indeed a good choice and you are required to run the Launcher to set up your basic options so that you can run the game. Good that you've solved everything so far. In other emergencies, do search the forums for similar issues. If that doesn't help, feel free to ask.

Also, the latest launcher is 5.5c. I had it, but lost it during a complete XP reinstall (silly me, didn't make a backup). I'll try to find the download site and post a link here.

Edit: OK, here we go.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Shiver me timbers! Download it now!
I like this one better!  :D

A note to the members of Something Awful Forums
Hello, my name is Turey, and I wrote the FreeSpace Open Installer. All of you at Something Awful seem to have taken quite an interest in both FreeSpace Open and my Installer. I'm always glad to see more people become interested in FreeSpace Open, but the addition of the SA traffic to the normal traffic has caused a problem for one of the file hosts that the Installer relies on. As such, the retail files and the Derelict mod campaign have been temporarily removed from the Installer.

I understand that this is inconvenient, but it has to be done. In the meantime, here's an alternative method of downloading. If you download the HotU Version, then run my Installer on top of it, it should result in an almost identical install to what you would have gotten with the retail files in my Installer. If you're looking for Derelict, you can get it from Hades-Combine.

Thank you for your cooperation, and I hope you enjoy playing FreeSpace Open.

But, if my hosting goes down hard, instead of at my self-imposed cutoff, bad t'ings will happen.  Then, I won't be hosting them, period :/

So, give it another day, and I should have bandwidth again.

If they run it over a retail install, it should use almost none of your bandwidth. Anyway, back on.
