  • Switch to windowed mode (open the Launcher, open the Features tab, select Dev Tools from the pulldown menu and tick on "Run in window").
  • Run a debug build (a build that ends with the word "debug", ends with the letter "d" or has the letter "d" immediately after the "3_6_10" part). If you've been experiencing crashes, do exactly what you've done previously, up until it crashes. If you have had other issues, it is sufficient to run it until you get to the Main Hall.

You missed the last and most important part:

Completely unrelated edit: does the Installer download the FSPort MediaVPs and if yes, how does it do it? I'm hoping there is a big note (like font size 42 or something) saying that the FSPort MediaVPs require the 3.6.10 MediaVPs unconditionally or they won't work properly. There seems to be a surge of tecg support issues related to the fact that people are not aware of this detail.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I have the 3.6.8 Media VPs currently. do i need to get the 3.6.10 to run my install which is 3.6.10?

i think i was being conservative when i dl that version of the VP's as i have an older system (AMD 3400 2.4 GHz and 3 GB RAM, FX 7600 GT.....

info appreciated on this. (Lobo's post got my attention....  ;) )

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Wouldn't hurt. As a comparison, I'm running the 3.6.10 MediaVPs (without AdvEffects) on a laptop with Intel Core Duo ~1.6GHz, 1 GB RAM and Mobility Radeon X1600. Works fine, just a little stuttering on the more hectic battles.

To play it safe, do things like this:
- Remove or just move away your current MediaVPs.
- Empty \freespace2\data\cache\ and all \freespace2\[MODFOLDER]\data\cache\ folders. Especially the one under \mediavps\.
- Download the 3.6.10 MediaVPs manually from the release thread. Use the torrents or the Sectorgame links. The Installer has had difficulties in downloading them.

In case you fear any problems, just download the seperate VP files, and remove Advanced Effects when things get slow. I think your system is capable of running the 3.6.10 MVP's just fine.

 
Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Hello, thanks for this great program.
Just one question, sorry if this has come up before. Basically I'm playing FS2 at 1280x720 resolution, however when I turn my ship the background image (Nebulas etc) moves as though its very close to the ship, it looks very odd, has this been encountered before? It doesn't happen on 1280x1024.
Many thanks in advance!

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
That would be the "wandering suns" syndrome present in anything from retail to FSO 3.6.9. And it does happen with 1280x1024, just to a smaller extent. Widescreen resolutions show it most clearly. Download the latest nightly build from the Nightly Builds board (link in my signature) and use it.

I assume you are playing on a widescreen monitor. That's because FSO isn't great at non-4:3 resolutions which 1280x720 is, stick to 1280x1024 (a 4:3 resolutions) which may stretch the image a bit but won't have wandering suns and nebulae.

I thought a fix had been implemented in recent builds, but I may be mistaken. You could try going to the recent builds forum and downloading the latest nightly build for windows and see if that fixes it!

There's no need to delete the old one's (unless you desperate for hard drive space that is, even then they don't take up that much space), they should have a different filename than the previous version you downloaded.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Just a note that I've split off a few posts responding to a problem Al Tarket was experiencing to this topic in the FS Support forum.  For future reference, any technical issues that don't specifically involve the use of Turey's installer should most likely be posted there.
