Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Installer updated (Zip still uploading...) changelog to follow.

Fixed large, important bug with downloading non-zipped files.
Added new text file. Nothing the average user needs to be informed of, but anyone wanting to use the Installer for their TC should check out the updated TC page on fsoinstaller.com.

Just scanning for the old versions and linking to a page on the installer website would probably be better than simply waiting for the user to find things don't work and come here though.

Next update, I'll try it. Three versions in as many days would be excessive.

Another stupid bug related to the new mirror support has been fixed. Sorry about that. Will upload new version in a bit.  :sigh:

Hi, your work makes life SO much easier.  Thank you  :) :yes:

Is your comment why I see several entries on some of the mods such as:

Post-Installation Notes for Awakenings
IMPORTANT NOTE: There was an error while installing this section. You may need to run the Installer again in order to ensure that this section works correctly.


Post-Installation Notes for Awakenings Voice Pack
IMPORTANT NOTE: There was an error while installing this section. You may need to run the Installer again in order to ensure that this section works correctly.


Post-Installation Notes for Cardinal Spear
IMPORTANT NOTE: There was an error while installing this section. You may need to run the Installer again in order to ensure that this section works correctly.



The prior screen shows "all mirror download sites have failed"

Nope. That's the one recent problem with the Installer that's not my fault. The server hosting those files has gone down, and there's no real replacement.

FSPort has been temporarily removed until a mirror goes up or wcsaga.com comes back from the dead.

What the heck happened to wcsaga.com?

 
Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
So no new installers for a while :(?

And the crowd goes YEA!

One thing I like about this place and the people associated with it, you guys know what your doing, Every other Sim I played, the tech support has the IQ of a dead cat, except this one.

wow it's been an eternity since I posted anything  :shaking: lol

Anyways, I just ran this LOVELY installer over my friend's house. FS2 works just fine, but the FSPort gives this error when entering the Ready Room:

Error: Invalid subsystem name.

In sexpression: ( when
   ( true )
   ( repair-subsystem
      "GTCv Deimos"

Select the FSPort Campaign in the Campaign room first.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
JR2 my features box is empty, what is up with that!
All of it, and on the scroll down things it is empty to.

Will i have to download it all again- though i have tried this twice already.

Any idea as to how i can get the the options under the features tab.

Thx.

 
Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Just had to download it again, since i rebooted and cleaned my entire system. For some reason i get alot of crackling in the sound. Tried fidgeting around with the sound quality but wont seem to stop.


Any help? The gameplay is fine, but the crackling is driving me bananas

Yes, get the latest AC97 drivers from Realtek... I'm sure that's what you have, because that's an issue with their older drivers.

Make sure you have the 3.6.9 executable selected ?
