Re: "hacked media tables" don't yell at me pleese
the reason why I am here is because i wanted a place where i can actually hang out with people who play freespace 2. but i guess freespace 2 is just too boring to be worth anything. looks like it's back to EBay for this game.

Re: "hacked media tables" don't yell at me pleese
Well, I recently stumbled upon this community (yay FS Wiki!), and I too had some minor issues playing multiplayer (well, setting it up.. I've not played any games yet - Where are you all?! =p).

First of all, a problem I had that wasn't covered by the FAQ, was the existence of a certain "multi.cfg" file in my Data folder, which I assume was over-riding the fs2open_pxo.cfg. Deleting this "multi.cfg" and making my own "fs2open_pxo.cfg" in Freespace2\Data and in Freespace2\mediavps\Data with the appropriate lines* resolved this issue and allowed me to connect :).

Also, you might want to try setting up Port Forwarding directly from your router. Your router's username/password will almost certainly be the default, but what the defaults are depend on your make and model. Go to portforward.com, and check the routers section for instructions on the default username/password, and how to set up port forwarding (your router model can usually be found on a handy label on the router itself). This is usually pretty simple actually, though may appear daunting at first.

Good luck, and greetings to the rest of you (this being my first post and all)!

This was not your problem.

That was your problem. :D

There is an old config file in mv_core.vp. The result is that any mod running with the media VPs active will use this in preference to the one that they should be using (i.e the one in Freespace2\Data). Putting that file in Freespace2\mediavps\Data overrides the override and gives you back the functionality you're looking for.

BTW if I were you'd replace the IP address with FS2NetD.Game-Warden.com IP Addresses change a lot more often than domain names :)

Re: "hacked media tables" don't yell at me pleese
Ah well my issue was that I'd already placed the fs2open_pxo.cfg in all the right places but it still wouldn't work.. After I got rid of the Multi.cfg I had no issues, though I suppose I may have inadvertantly done something else to fix it  :D.

And thank you, I'll alter the config file to FS2NetD.Game-Warden.com now :).

Re: "hacked media tables" don't yell at me pleese
Don't use Tom's engine build.  It's horribly buggy, and we don't support it.

The "hacked tables" message is just a problem we have with the current validation system.  Right now we can't really fix it, so you just have to live with the fact that your stats won't be stored. :) Rest assured that it'll be fixed as soon as possible.

hym so thats why check sums on client and server dont match? is it server side bug or what? i had idea of getting just those 2 damn tables, but where from? :p

i did everything all right i played few games, but stats was tossed i connected etc.. thing work good with toms [Jeez i got validation] but it crashes others. and dont give us this same link on warden cause i read it like 10 ten times and nearly cant quote it when suddenly woke up in night.  and was trying to fight it  like on 5 different installs

its mostly very strange some ppl ddint have this rpoblem ? [wtf? hym, could somebody post his multi cfg? iwihs to see ur check sums of wepons and ship .tbl]

Re: "hacked media tables" don't yell at me pleese
If you run FS2_Open with the no mods option selected (From the mod tab) then you won't get the error and your stats should be saved.

If they aren't I suspect the problem is the same one DW-Hunter was getting earlier on this thread.

Re: "hacked media tables" don't yell at me pleese
Did you install the game using the online installer?

Check your freespace2 folder and see how large your root_fs2.vp file is. If it's ~5.6MB in size replace it with the ~6MB file from in here.

Re: "hacked media tables" don't yell at me pleese
No problem. The cause was that you were running with the v1.0 VP and the game validates the v1.2 VP only.

Looks like you have an older version of the root_fs2.vp. Here is the latest one that they validated. For those who also have the same problem I should let you know that none of the other tables are valid on SCP, although all volition made tables ARE valid on toms build. Poor planning on SCP's part I know since there are 3 different versions of 1.2 tables, GotY, SotY and the newest ones.
