Gunnery Control, target UgLyPuNk; commence plasma core insertion.  Power up photon beam cannons... sensor lock aquired, Fire!


:welcome:
Welcome to Hard Light Productions, UgLyPuNk.  Exits are to your rear. In case of emergency, Flamethrowers can be found under your seats. They're empty though, so you'll have to beat others to death with them.

If, for some strange, as-yet-unknown reason you find yourself crawling through one of the nearby airducts, you are quite possibly going to run into a shivan. Five legs, glowing red eyes. You cant miss 'em. It's probably just Carl, though. Give him whatever food you have on you, and he should leave you alone. If you have none, take comfort in the fact that your death will, at least, be quick (if not painless).

There are Plasma rifles located in the forward storage lockers, however these can only be accessed by an Admin, [V], God, or Hyperintelligent shade of the color blue. Be warned that the door to the Command Bridge is guarded by subspatial claymore mines.

The SCP is all that is good. Mention FS3 at your own peril. And have a nice day.

The Installer is back up. Everything works (I hope!) except for the FS2 OGG cutscenes (FS1 cutscenes work fine). This will be fixed shortly.

EDIT: OGG cutscenes work now.

In 1807 Dracula was feeding with the blood of young virgins.
We are sorry to report that in 2007 Count Dracula was found dead in his mansion, due to extreme starvation.

Well... installedversions.txt keeps track of everything you've installed through the Installer. If you use it correctly, you can make the Installer think that it's installed things that it hasn't. That's what the retail instructions on the first post do: they trick the Installer into thinking that it has already installed retail when it hasn't. However, if you screw up, you might end up having to re-download quite a bit. I'd recomend that you don't screw with it. The Installer's checking for a Retail installation should be almost instantaneous now that RK is hosting the files unzipped. If I were you, I'd just run the Installer and let it do its thing. It won't take long.

I was using extract now. I'm about to look for winrar or something else. And thanks for the beam. Tury I have the 5.5 version of your launcher and it worked fine. I need the mediavp files that didn't download with 3.6.9-RC7.8. Everything else is fine.  Jim

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Don't give up!  There's tons of ways to install it, if one doesn't work there's at least 3 more I know off the top of my head.  You could try the DVD ISO image if nothing else.  Then you could even give it to your friends too.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
If I already have OpenAL installed on my box, is it OK to skip the OpenAL part of the install (im going to use the java based installer here).?

Forget it....worked like a charm.  Nice installer!!!

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
BTW, the Installer should now be working correctly... Turey made a typo (typed Root_fs2.vp instead of root_fs2.vp), that was the Installer problem.  Should work now.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
BTW, if you're still using 5.5, instead of the latest (5.5b, IIRC), there was a reason why it was updated... IDK if that's anything to do with the problem.  I have tons of contact options on my profile; maybe we can hash this out... Actually, look here (your "delete my account" thread) for a solution that should be absolutely painless.

Hey hey hey. Don't blame Taylor for my mistakes. The typo was all mine.

Anyways, I've started to slow down on adding features to the Installer, as I need to concentrate on my schoolwork. However, a forum member contacted me about adding proxy support, and since it looks fairly easy, I'll put it on my To-Do list.
