Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Just for reference, stuff that I'm planning for this summer:
- Finally put in Linux builds.
- Putting some of the stuff in Shivan's pack into the Installer (Perhaps timed with the release of pack 2.0)
- Any other features/additions you guys might suggest.
- Possibly end development and hand the whole thing off to someone else (I'm not sure, still debating this.)

Remind me about these sometime after June 20th, as I'll be too busy until then.

Hi there,

Sorry to bug, but I tried running the FSOpen Launcher once it had finished installing, and it said it was missing FSOpen.dll or something similar to that. What file am I missing?

Running Launcher.exe? What size is it?

Yes, sorry, the Open Launcher.exe. As to what size... er... do you mean the launcher, or the bug?

Ok I'll fess up. lol It's working now because I just realised that it was just going slow and I thought it wasn't working.
Thanks for the help sorry I was being stupid.

 
Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Hah. You know, in retrospect, it would have helped had I installed OpenAL. I feel really dumb. :wtf:

Thanks for taking the time to help... sorry it turned out to be the standard user-error. :rolleyes:

Hey, at least it means that I don't have to change my code. That's always a plus.

Nope your code is awesome! Thanks again.

 
Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Turey you change the code and it'l mess me up, I downloaded your latest and greatest, and man you are the FreeSpace installer god. If anybody ever says you don't know what your doing, just refer them to me, I'll be more than happy to set them straight :)

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I just installed FS with this installer and the game doesn't really look like it's supposed to  :(. At first I only installed "FreeSpace Retail Core" and all its subcategories, the 3.6.9 mac executable and the launcher. After seeing how it looked, I also installed the 3.6.8 zeta mediavp's (not the advanced ones). That didn't solve the problem. I also tried deleting the ~/Library/FS_Open/Cache folder a couple of times, but to no avail.

Since it's kind of hard to describe how the game looks, I've posted some screenshots. One other important thing though: in the tech room, most of the ships don't show when I click on them. So my first thoughts were that I was missing textures or smt like that.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Do you have the -jpgtga textures option on?  (You should).

My "Features" tab in the Launcher looks like this:  (You did get the Launcher for OSX in Turey's Installer, right?)

(All enabled, unless specified disabled):

List type:
Graphics:
Enable specular
Enable glowmaps
Enable environment maps
Enable jpg/tga textures
Enable mipmapping
Disable motion debris
Stops fog intersect hull
(not selected - disabled) Disable scale-to-window for movies
Apply Lighting to Missiles (you may or may not want this, check and see if it affects your performance.. turn it on, if you have issues, turn it off.)

HUD:
Another pair of scanning lines
Enable info next to target
Enables 3d radar
Enable Rearm/Repair Completion Timer
Enable the analog ballistic ammo gauge

Gameplay:
Use models for ship selection
Enable 3d warp
Enable flash upon warp
(disable next two, Babylon & Wing Commander...)

Added to "Custom flags":
-ambient_factor 0 -no_emissive_light -fov 0.55 -spec_exp 16.7 -spec_point 0.6 -spec_static 0.9 -spec_tube 1

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Thx for your reply. None of those options worked though (I already had most of the settings "right"). BUT, I got it working by enabling the mediavp's (-mod mediavps). Everything seems fine now. I guess the engine doesn't really work anymore with the original freespace 2 graphics.

Greetings
Tomas

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
It should work perfectly well with the original graphics. Something is very wrong with your install if it doesn't.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
I just reinstalled FS and I have no problems yet, only thing I notice is its the monitor drawing is a little more sharp than it was before.

I let the installer handle everything. I didn't touch a thing myself ;-).
I've noticed that the cyclops missile is still missing from the game, even when I use the mediavp's.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Erg.  Time to post the problem solver again.

Can you post your directory listing?  Start->Run, type
Code: [Select]
cmd press enter
type
Code: [Select]
dir "c:\games\freespace2" /s>"%homepath%\my documents\fs2dir.txt"(replace c:\games\freespace2 with your fs2 dir drive / path as neccessary)
Then, post it, hit "Additional Options", hit "Browse", find your fs2dir.txt file in your My Documents folder, then post it - if you don't see "Additional Options", then hit the "Preview" button first, then it will show up.

K?  :)

Compare it with my working version, seen below.
