Or make backups of your original discs.  Either way you can pretty much have it all.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Does anyone know how to take screenshots without the HUD and all on the screen, like those on the Derelict loading screens? Or were the pictures taken by another program?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
You'll find a key combination for toggling the HUD on or off from the keyboard configuration. As an old geezer I can't remember if it was the default or not, but I have it assigned to Shift-O.

Then just Prt Sc.

...though I fail to understand how this is related to the Installer.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
So... any thoughts about adding the MediaVP 3.6.10's to this installer?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Probably waiting for the first patch.  I would be.  Maybe even waiting for FSPort to clean itself up a bit too so they can all be done at one time, it's not very good to mix and match them.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I have discovered that all media vp's usually end up in Turey's installer after a while, if they don't end up there, they end up linked to from here somewhere.

They would have been in the Installer over a week ago (I sent Turey an updated textfile) but Turey hasn't figured out how to add .7z support yet. :(

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
The only way to do it would be to shell out to a command line program.  Those exist on all the supported platforms, it would just end up becoming a prerequisite for the installer on top of Java.  I can understand why he wouldn't want to force that on people but it really is a tighter compression that saves a lot of bandwidth I'm sure.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Well I'm royally confused, I've downloaded "the works" but all I'm getting is a "web cursor not found" error, and I've tried running both the 3.6.10 and 3.6.9 executables.  I realize the retail files aren't included anymore, but why does this matter for FSO?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
It matters mainly because FSO requires FS2.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
well in that case I think the wording of the OP should be changed to something more like "you must have retail FS2, which can be bought from GOG for $6"  :p

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I've used that wording on the installation instructions thread on the support board. And it is expressed in The FAQ that FSO is not a new game. So I suppose Turey assumes that anyone who wants to install FSO understands that it is something you add on top of FS2. A matter of opinion, I guess.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Good Old Games. You can buy fresh, DRM-free copies of Freespace 2 there, which is why the installer no longer supplies the retail FS2 files.

And its cheap too, I have had FS and FS2 since they weer first released and the last place I saw them out in public was at Walmart in the 9.99 section of video games, so I just ordered myself a copy of both games :)
