Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
When I download the installer now, will it load the new 3.6.10 Version or still the old 3.6.9 one...?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
The 3.6.10 media VPs are still in beta testing and for this reason shouldn't be added to the installer yet. We'd get too many people complaining about bugs if that happened.

Installing them yourself isn't very hard but if you don't know how you probably shouldn't be playing with them yet.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
3.6.10 are optional in the Installer... which .exe you choose in the Launcher is up to you, however, and I think it defaults to 3.6.9 (not sure).

EDIT: That's the build, not the MVPs... not sure about those.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Simply backup everything in the mediavps folder to a safe place. Delete the ones in your mediavps folder.

Get the 3.6.10 .EXEs from the installer.

Get the new MVPs from this thread. Only get the AdVP if you have a fast video card. Place the files in \FreeSpace2\mediavps. (REMEMBER TO BACK UP THE OLD VPS!!!)

I'm thinking of putting the 3.6.10 mediavps into the Installer, but making them unselected by default.

Wait for DaBrain to patch them and then make only one set of VPs selectable at a time.

Otherwise you're going to get people downloading both.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Just as a reminder and out of curiosity...has lightspeed's nebulas and the modified fs2 missions that work with his nebulaes gotten into the installer at all?
It's really a terrible thing to forget everytime to do a fresh install of fs2.

Not sure if they're in there now, but from what I've read, they're in the 3.6.10 mediavps, so they should be in soon.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Any ideas when the installer will be updated to 3.6.10? Two weeks? A month?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
The installer is separate from the SCP, it's just a way to get files. As sonn as FSO 3.6.10 comes out, the installer will include the files. 3.6.10 isn't out yet, so you can only get the baby .EXEs.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
So in the mean time I should go to SCP and get the nebula's right? Just asking cause I finished installing a replacement hard drive 2 days ago and I'm about to download Tureys installer (again)

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
If at all possible, just copy the files over. You don't need the Lightspeed nebulae, unless you have a campaign requiring them. What do you mean "Go to SCP"?

The SCP site is about 2-3 years out of date. In other words, don't use it.

That is equivalent to going to the TBP site and trying to download stuff from there. Don't do it. Scour the forums for the newest official content or use Turey's Installer. And as for the LS Nebulae, go to Useful Stuff (link in my signature).

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Thanks for that info, I've been using Tureys installer since his first post about it.  HOWEVER, the links in your sig might be useful :) I have been using 7zip for about 6 months now, its better than win zip, and kinda like winrar, I have a corp version of winrar that I paid out the butt for that never has to be registered but once :).

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

A little help please.

I discovered this game yesterday after seeing rave reviews.
I downloaded the files with the installer. Stupid me, I downloaded almost everything (several hours) except the Linux and Mac .exe, and the 3.6.10 exe. So I believe I have way too many files to start with, with a folder of 3,42 GB.

Anyway, I now have so many exe and packages that I do not know where to start, and how to install and run the game.

Any instructions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

My specs :

1.5 GB free disk space
AMD Athlon 2600+ (1.9 GHz)
Radeon 9600 Pro 128 MB
1 Gig RAM
DirectX 9.0c
Windows XP

Use Launcher.exe and fs2_open_3_6_9.exe. Nothing else. If you downloaded everything, you now have all the graphical delight, as well as several usermade campaigns. Be happy. Oh, and with that rig, remove adv_effects.vp from your mediavps folder.
