Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Yea alpha I know exactly whats wrong, you have windows vista, I can say this because I had vista on this computer and FS froze stalled ctd'd and sometimes I had to unplug the computer to make it stop
That's one way. I deduced that he had Vista since he explicitly said so himself.

Quote from: AlphaOne
well sad to say FS open wont work with MY Windows vista!

Well thats one way to deduce the problem.

I still say going from Vista to XP is an upgrade, I don't know too much about the ultimate vista (also don't believe there really is one) but the only way to get home basic or premium of the computer is to completely slick the hard drive

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
WEll i do have Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit version! Now a friend o mine said that my current version is a piece of crap since from what he said windows Vista Ultimate is not exactly ultimate and with some minor fixes here and there everithing can be solved ! I believe he has a more updated version and i asked him to lend it to me in order to try and see if his works!  If it does then all i can do is send him my Vista and get his! since i have no idea how to tweak it and stuff! But he can do that with my "raw" copy!

Anyway from what i can figure out gooing to Xp Profesional 64 bit version especialy with the latest service pack is the best solution for a few years anyway! The thing is i wanted vista cuz Halo 2 wont work on anithing other then vista or rather that is what i heard!

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I'm currently downloading stuff with the installer...

But I'm getting "The File <filename> is out of date." for about every file, should I be worried?

Also, it would be nice if the size of each element was shown where you check stuff. Or if it's there already I didn't see it ô.o. Even an approximation of ±10MB would be nice. Especially since the progress doesn't show overall progress, but the progress on each file... So I have no idea if this will be done in 2 minutes, or 2 days :P. Luckily I unchecked the retail files as I already have them, I can imagine it taking a long while to download everything that was on that list...



That spell check button is nice ;)

Guess you have a lot of files that are outdated, and the Installer therefore downloads newer versions. You decide whether that is right or wrong.

Oh, I thought it was the file that it downloaded that was outdated... ok makes sense. Actually I didn't have any of the FSO files, I guess no files is considered outdated :P

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
well so far i know of over 5 personal frinds of mine that nearly smashed theyr pc's beause of vista but opted for the cheper version of just deleting vista and installing XP and at least 20 other ppl i meet once or twice a week that started looking wierd and full of hatred towards me or started laughing hard when i said i got Vista on my PC !  Sop i guess they are right im currently tryng to update the drivers for the vid card and update windows itself hopefully that will work if now then il just erase the damnned thing and go for XP 64 bit version.

Do a search on Google for "Halo 2 on XP" and you'll find lots of help on how to give MS the finger over that claim. :p

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I made a topic about it just a few hours ago.  It's called the Alky Project.

 
Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Turey I figured you above all people would have a working copy of vista if anybody did LOL. I never had a problem downloading the game it was playing the game. It might have been my copy of vista too, I know people that say vista rocks, and I know people who say never again after they dump vista. I'm one that says never again. I'll get a mac before I ever have vista after the 8 months of hell I went through

It's a made-from-scratch OS from MS, give it a year and the proper drivers will be released. Mac's new OSes aren't really new OSes, rather they are more like Service Packs...

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
If I waited a year dealing with the OS I had I'd put a gun in my mouth and pull the trigger, I'm crazy enough as I am, the last thing I need is the stress of reloading a computer every 3 weeks.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
It's a matter of other companies not preparing for Vista. And reinstalling drivers is hardly "reloading a computer every 3 weeks."

I heard it was supposed to be made from scratch, but they pushed that OS back to the next release and Vista is still a re-worked XP... anyone confirm this for me?

Reinstalling drivers?
I wish thats all I had to do, when I had vista on this rig heres the procedures I went through to reload it.

step 1) try to turn on computer, receive operating system not found message
step 2) Cuss a lot while trying to use vista disk to repair computers operating system
step 3) receive message that vista can NOT recover system because a system must be installed first
step 4) Go to reload step on vista disk
step 5) receive message that a operating system already exists, and windows vista can not overwrite it.
step 6) insert maxtor disk and format hard drive from scratch
step 7) reinsert vista disk
step 8) hope the generic vista cd drive will work this time
step 9) reinstall vista home basic
step 10 ) download and reinstall every single driver from M/S that I lost in the last reload
step 11 ) find out that Microsoft vista mouse doesn't work again, needs updated drivers ( HELLO! whats wrong here?)
step 12 ) reinstall all software and update drivers

thats what I went through every time I reloaded vista, dievate from any one step and you have to start all over again, all my 3rd party drivers worked fine, its the updated stuff I downloaded from Microsoft that didn't work right such as the M/S mouse certified for vista. The realteck drivers downloaded from M/S site they crashed the system, downloaded from realteck's site they work fine ( go figure)

If anybody is lucky enough to get away with simply reinstalling driver, I envy you. all that and having to log on as administrator every time I wanted to go wipe my butt, drove me to buy the O/S I'm on now, which has had NO problems yet.

Wasn't XP from scratch? I never had problems with XP, and I got it in early 2001.
