Re: Freespace2 Online Installer
Hi...um I having trouble downloading the installer. I get a 404 error page stating that

"The requested URL /files/freespace/FreeSpace2Setup.exe was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

The issue there also applies to this installer.

What? Where'd you download it from? The one on Nukelol won't work. It's old.

What do you mean, "It doesn't install the game"?

It works for me, and I see no reason why it wouldn't work for you. If you give me more information, I may be able to help you out. Are you connected to the Internet while installing? Is your firewall blocking it? Does it put anything in the folder you select?

Nothing else
No firewall or internet problems either

Re: Freespace2 Online Installer
Should he try deleting those files and starting from scratch?

Nah, the Retail Installer doesn't read them. It only makes them so that the Open Installer doesn't re-download the files.

The only thing I can think of is that he's hitting cancel when it tries to download the files.

He has to be running it, as he wouldn't get the text file without it.

Can someone else test to see if it works for them?

Re: Freespace2 Online Installer
I think I might be suffering from errors. That's the word I see a lot of as its installing.

Plus I've already downloaded the file several times, but its the same effect every time.

Re: Freespace2 Online Installer
This doesn't help fix this problem, but can you Bittorrent a 3.28GB file?

 
Re: Freespace2 Online Installer
I have trouble with bittorrent (too slow). Can you PM files?

I did note in "Properties" the installer was version 1.00, not 1.03.

Re: Freespace2 Online Installer
Can you access the files directly?

Try http://fringespace.org/downloads/scp/retail/ .

And can you post the error messages?

Re: Freespace2 Online Installer
Well the thing is, the installer runs so quickly I am unable to take down anything but I do remember seeing the word error when it was installing.

Anyway now I'm trying the link you gave.
