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.

could just be server load.

What time of day are you trying to download? I found that anytime between 2100 and 2400 EST is the best time to download anything since most of the US is asleep and the rest are still at work, making the net a little faster.

Corrupted smarty_fs2.vp has been fixed, and backup mirrors have been added for all retail files.

Turey, I've found a problem you may want to fix. After install is completed, the page is scrolled all the way down, so no one sees the install notes.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
wolfen,

In my walkthrough I actually instruct people to install Retail first, to save time and bandwidth... what you did is quite logical, since FSOpen is Retail-compatible (or at least not conflicting with it).

 
Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I'm just glad that somebody in this world makes something compatible with windows vista, God knows I've had nothing but problems with this thing till finally figured out that anything downloaded from M/S updates site thats not  M/S will totally screw up vista.
Hell my HP printer doesn't even work with their vista driver, I have to use windows to make that work, and scanning is a real fun time using windows photo gallery every time.
Its nice to know FS, and FS2 will install and tureys update and installer works with this quagmire of a operating sysytem

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Strange I thought I downloaded it from the same place, and put  it on the same directory, anyway I downloaded it again and now it's working.
Thank you for the welcoming and for helping me, now I can enjoy the FS1 campaign in it's full glory.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Don't mention it. But there are a few things before you can truly enjoy FSPort. Click the Useful Stuff link on my signature and download a couple of HTL ships and a fixed training mission from there. The instructions for dealing with the files are on that same page.

Edit: Oh, and the Enhanced Weapon Effects table file, so that the weapons use the effects from the mediavps instead of the retail ones.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Turey, there is a problem with both this and the BtRL updater. Some of the files (one or two of the VPs in the FSO version; the .EXEs in the BtRL version) are slightly larger or smaller (a few bytes, possibly caused by a different compression method or file transfer on the server. Anyway, this small change in size causes the file (in some cases 150+ Mbs) to be downloaded again.
