Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Hi. I haven't played Freespace (2) before and was really looking forward to it. I have been using the installer to get bits and pieces of the game over a few nights on my laptop. I'm up to the last piece that I wanted (Advanced media VPS and FS Port), but the installer doesn't work any more.

What I have been doing: It starts up okay, Click next, next, uncheck yes to all, click next. At this point, it freezes. The screen where you check the packages you want stays completely greyed out. I tried it with both the JAR and exe versions of the installer (Windows may have updated. I wasn't really paying attention). The only thing I can think of that's changed on my system is that I have rebooted it, which I didn't do between the other installs.

I also tried just leaving it for a while, to see if it was still working, but it stayed the same for a number of hours.

I may just try and finish the installation off on another computer later tonight.

Thanks!

edit: Using Windows XP with all updates. Virus scanner is McAfee, but I turned it off to make sure.
edit2: Also happens on my Vista computer.

Your saying that that's the problem or Gooby will be pissed? That wouldn't cause the problem, I assume like these two that it must have been an update.

Yeah, now that I think back properly, windows did update. It had the "Install updates and shut down" option, but I didn't take any notice of it.

For my part, I did not do a Windows Update.

Well, maybe it wasn't the exceeded bandwidth that killed the application, but it was the first line in the error log.  Perhaps if it wasn't, the log may be able to tell what the real problem was.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
The tools section of what?
I'm obviously missing something here thats gonna get me laughed at.
The installer has an option to install "Tools". Basically stuff like the FS2Net Game Viewer, PCS2, VPView, ModelView, stuff like that.

Oh,....that tools section, I was thing inside the tunnel looking all over this site for the tools section LOL, but do I feel stupid.

If he doesn't watch it in those tunnels and vents he'll be a part of Carl, but no, Wolfen is not Carl. Carl is Carl. This is Carl. Huh. Have a lunch?

Ok but why does it change on the post itself?
And why when I just looked back at my old posts my name is wolfen again?
I'm just wondering if its at my end or if somebody's messing around cause I read other posts that had 1 name when I first looked at it, and a completely different name the second time I looked at it.
