Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Yeah - but, that doesn't mean they've installed their discs first :D  It's often easier to just download it all, y'know?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Yep. We've continually had people giving bad advice about installing the whole thing from your server even when people have the disks or have already downloaded HotU.

Not to mention people suggesting a reinstall when the problems are very minor.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Installer now includes Linux executables (both 32 and 64 bit) and unpacks them correctly with permissions. Note that the unpacking only works on Mac and Linux. Windows will just download the containing file and do nothing with it.

EDIT: Also, support for tar.gz and tar.bz2 files has been added, but only on Mac and Linux.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Hi friends!
First of all, i want to send my greetings for turey because he´s work make our life and playing easier!
That´s my second time making my install from turey installer, but i haven´t been as sucessful as i have been in the first time.
I´ve enough space in disk (more than 8 Gb), and i usually disable my firewall and antivirus for downloading something from secure channels, so i believe that what is happening doesn´t have nothing to do with my conection.
I´m doing as i have done in the first time, unzipping everything and installing it in an apropriate place in my disk.
However, something happen dudring the installation and the program simply stop doing the download!
It still have its progress bar on working or donwloading with some % of one of the archives, however, it don´t do anything more.
I checked and the program still being viewed as working in the windows (it ´s not non responding).
Today complete 24 hrs that i just left my pc turned on for downloading the game, but it still in the same place that it was something aroun 20 hrs ago.

It´s not possivble to copy and paste from the installation progress place, so.....
Once more, thanks to all.
See ya.

If you kill the Installer and start it again, it'll resume from close to where it was.

@Turey: maybe make the Installer sense if a file has had no connectivity within an hour, and have it auto-restart with the same options as the first time it was run?  That's help, as I had to have someone else do the same thing with his Install.

It should detect timeouts and skip files.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
turey I gotta do the installer thing all over again, I lost teh hard drive again and just got done reloading it.

Just a note for anybody using vista, don't up date and realtek drivers through windows update. Or else a week later you will be downloading Tureys installer all over again.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Can somebody tell me why my download is so slow? I have more then enough bandwith, and still it won't load fast. I downloaded yesterday almost the entire day, and today since 11 a clock. right now im at "sparky_hi_fs2.vp" and it feels like 2kb/sec..what am I doing wrong? No firewall or stuff like that, everything else works perfect.
