Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
One question... can I DL it over several days or do I have to install everything in one shot?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
You can install it in as many segments as you like. It won`t overwrite the existing files but will only DL the ones you haven`t got yet.

If you get halfway through downloading a big file, however, it will have to download that whole file again, but otherwise, yes.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
What's the deal with the mods included with FSO? Half of them just work, half of them are missing ships when I try them out, like the FS1 port. What's the deal here?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
For example I try out the FSport mod folder, it loads up, intro cutscenes and all, but when I start the campaign, I'm informed that I'm missing 30 ships and loading of the campaign was aborted. Sounds like I'm missing some kind of expansion.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Ah, now I get it. In addition to selecting a mod folder, do remember to select the proper campaign from the Campaign Room in-game. You've probably been trying to play the FS2 campaign while using the FSPort as a mod.

How to invert mouse control moviments?(Didnt saw it anywhere on Options)


On the bottom, on the left side (I think) there is a switch labeled "Invert" - it's easy to miss.  Turn it on;)  (This would be in the section where you can change keys assigned to movements - go to the Pitch U/D or equivalent setting, select it, then enable "Invert")

Alright I see it downloads them..It just finished, but I didn't have a Freespace 2 folder so I put them in this other one..then when I ran it it said "Freespace 2 cannot be run in a root directory!" and doesn't work.. Should I move all the contents of the folder into one of that path?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I seem to have lost track of what you've been doing. So,

1. Where did you install FSO?
2. Don't try to have it in My Documents or the desktop. That will effectively cause those kinds of errors. If you have FSO in My Documents or the desktop, move it, for example, to C:\games\freespace2.

Und keine eier. And do remember to use Launcher.exe. Only. FS2.exe and Freespace2.exe are the retail files and using them is sort of pointless. Unless you specifically want to play retail. And directly using the FSO builds isn't really necessary. Launcher.exe is quite enough for everything. Except FREDing.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I also had a problem with the installer.

I'm running Kubuntu 8.04 (KDE3.5 variant) and I checked the Linux 32-bit option (plus FS2 retail, FreeSpace Port and a few 3rd party campaigns). The installer downloaded a tarball called fso369-x86.tar.gz but it was only 918 bytes in size and obviously had nothing in it (the file refused to open anyway).

Where's the 3.6.9 binary (shell script/whatever) for Linux? I don't want to use WINE to run FreeSpace exes!

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Would this thread help?

I downloaded the 3.6.9 Final Linux file, ran it, and installed into the directory that I had the previous installer create.

It run (which is great) but it only sees the FS2 campaign, and not the others I added. Any ideas?
