Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Re-run it again.  It should have installed those files.  Did it say that it had given up on downloading any files?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!

Great...Now it seems something with the installer is wrong, because after the download is at 100%, it starts with the download again from the beginning, now for the third time...I think I give up  :sigh:

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
At least the download seems to work, I think maybe the last time not all the files were downloaded properly. How long does a complete download take, im now downloading over an hour.

You should be getting close now. Remember that you're getting FS1 and FS2 + Mods. Both games together took up 5 CDs.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Thanks, I got it. Which configuration should I choose for the best graphic? On "Graphic" I choosed every point, on gameplay I choosed "Enable 3d Warp",  "Use models for ship selection" and "Enable flash upon warp".

I let the other markers in the standart configuration.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
It really depends on how much punishment your computer can take. I'd advise you to tick at least Enable specular, Enable glowmaps, Enable environment maps, Enable jpg/tga textures and Use models for ship selection. If you experience severe lagging, start ticking the options off until you reach a tolerable limit. But leave Enable jpg/tga textures on. You'll need it to avoid annoying graphical problems.

You can also use the Custom flags field to adjust lighting values. I use the following. you can test it and adjust it according to the FreeSpace Wiki article on the subject.

-ambient_factor 75 -spec_exp 11 -spec_point 0.6 -spec_static 0.8 -spec_tube 0.4 -no_emissive_light -ogl_spec 80

And use OpenGL.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Greetings to all.  I hate to bother you with dumb questions right off the bat, but I have several problems.
I have the Interplay 20th Anniversary Edition of FS2 retail, and FS1 retail (with Silent Threat). I've been researching the SCP for quite some time, but just never found the place to get it until I stumbled upon HLP and discovered Turey's flawless installer and jr2's instructions.
Well.. I downloaded it, (having FS2 installed, and I had played through the campaign up to Sicilian Defence i think, and FS1 not installed), copied the movie files from the disks, followed all the instructions (OpenAL, configuration of the launcher, etc), and when I opened it the computer screen was a distorted piece of jumbled pixels. I fixed this by tinkering with the video settings on the launcher, and it started right up.
The first problem i noticed was that the models of the ships in the tech database did not show up, or were incomplete, then when I attempted to continue the campaign, the screen minimized and an error message came up reading:

Error: Could not load WarpMap02 anim file

File:J:\src\cvs\fs2_open_3_6_9.final\code\Fireball\FireBalls.cpp
Line: 697
[This filename points to the location of a file on the computer that built this executable]

Call stack:
------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------
 
I didnt know what to do. I decided to delete everything, uninstallation of the game and everything, and start over. This time I downloaded the retail core from the installer, not the game (I thought the 20th anniversary edition had something to do with it), my progress had, of course been deleted so I started with the training missions of the mediavps? mod. The same error message occurred, but this time i clicked 'ok' twice, and it continued to load successfully. I skipped the first two training missions and launched the third. I witnessed the magnificent changes of the scp: the enhanced nebular backgrounds, etc, but when the first drone jumped in, the game, computer, everything froze.
I rebooted and tried again with the fsport mod, this time with the 'high memory usage features off' activated. The tech database still did not show models. I launched the FS1 campaign and this time did not skip and training missions. When the first drone jumped in, it froze again. I also noticed an error file appeared in the fs2's directory, indicating an integer divide by zero error. At this point i realized the only option was to come here to request assistance from the masters.
I apologize for the length of my post, but I wanted to give you all the information i could. I haven't ruled out the possibility that this is an internal problem and found nothing of the sort on the faq.
please help, thanks.

What are your system specs? I've seen this one pop a couple of times in the past actually.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Therein probably lies your problem. That is waaaaay worse than my PC; half the RAM, worse processor, and chances are a crappy GPU. Delete every file in the "mediavps" directory with advp in the name. IF it still doesn't work, lower the detail.

What is your GPU? (video card)

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I heard there is a new version of Freespace SCP available...3.6.10.

But how can I update my version? I I run the installer an choose "update installed sections only", I got afterwards still version 3.6.9...

Browse the correct FS Open build with your launcher, then click on "Apply". You will also have to get compatible media vps... :)

Im now just downloading the MV_Core.vps, Assets.vps, Music.vps etc. and will insert them manualy in the FS2 directory. That should also do it, right?

No. Put them into their own directory, something like \freespace\mediavps3610 or along those lines. Never put anything in the root freespace directory.
