DAEMON Tools is very good (I have it installed myself) but for everyday ease of use, I mostly use cloneCD Virtual Drive (freeware) available at www.slysoft.com ;)

That's the one I use. I wrote up a guide to using it on the FreeSpace Wiki a while ago.

why would an SCP error be considered as news? :wtf: *smacks Cobra*It's a feature.

Thanks for the link.  I have been abusing my work PC looking for stuff and found their site but missed the link to the freeware download, DOH.  I think I'll stick with this as Daemon Tools is a little heavy for my needs.

I assume that once I download all of the files I'd need to unpack them into just one virtual drive (to replicate one DVD) and I can delete it once installed.

Yeah. Unpack it into one .iso file, use VCD to mount it, then run it from there. You can unmount + delete once it's installed.

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download from Filefront!
you can google it for a download (the version included on the DVD is a bit older)

hip63 :P



Tried that.  It leads me to the old FS2 Screensaver project from many years ago.  It won't work on Windows XP.

I just hope I don't get banned for life 'cause really think filefront is cool :shaking:

hip63 :P

lols you should have let me take the hit... ;)  I did offer to upload to FileFront, but I don't have the disk yet and I imagine at your place of work, the upload bandwidth is faster.

 
Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (Get it while it lasts!)
It will be too bad if filefront removes it, I don't know of another place that will accept 1 GB files. What if you uploaded it under some weird, non-FreeSpace name, like "hip63's Space Game" lol.

hip63, in answer to your question, I installed it last night. Overall, things went pretty smooth. I found a couple of typos, OpenAL wanted to install twice, and a couple of the install windows wouldn't go away. I installed from a virtual drive because I'm out of DVDs if that makes a difference.

On the plus side, everything seemed to end up in the proper places (you'd have to ask Turey though, he's the expert). Good job on including the manuals. I really liked the background music for the install, and the custom cursor is really cool.

If you want I can install again and take specific notes and send you a PM.

The FSport missions have just been updated too, but I don't know if the update has been "authorized". Plus, I wish I knew when the new mediavps were coming out (as do we all I'm sure). And Turey will have a new updater soon I guess.

Thanks for your hard work, it's obvious you did a LOT!

Thanks for the feed back. :yes:

Hmm, well I tested it on serveral machines (professional computer geek by trade as it advantages :D) with virtual drives & from disk without those issues. Friends installed it too without those issues as well.

Sounds like it may have loaded up twice, two instances running at the same time maybe.

If anyone else sees this, please let me know.

And as of this morning, the links are still going strong (who knows, maybe this one will stay off the FF radar ;))

Would anyone mind putting up a walkthrough to unpack the .rar files into one .iso using 7zip? One at time didn't work, I got a broken file error for parts 2-4 and I haven't been able to figure out how to stitch em together.

You should just open #1, then it should prompt you for the rest... when it asks for #2, point it to #2, etc.

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (Get it while it lasts!)
Here's my version:

Make sure your downloads were good, since files that big can mess up easily.

Files 1-3 should all be 1,047,600 KB. File 4 should be 247,401 KB.

With WinRAR or 7zip, you can test each file---of course none should come up with a "corrupt archive" message.

If those conditions are met, make sure all 4 files are in the same folder, then unpack file 1. The rest will be found and extracted automatically, resulting in an iso file that's 3,439,634 KB.

 
Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (Get it while it lasts!)
Guess venamar got it working, who would know?

Here's my upload contribution---It may come in handy if Filefront isn't working, or for folks who have a problem with 1 GB files. I took the full iso (including Wing Commander and Babylon 5) and 7zipped it into (35 ea.) 95 MB chunks. There are a lot of files because it's a big image, what can I say. On the plus side, you can use a download manager for these. The iso is pretty well compressed already, I think 7zipping saved around 200 MB which isn't much. So without further ado:

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (Get it while it lasts!)
@Huggybaby: where would be several good places to upload the DVD hip63 sent me?

 
Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (Get it while it lasts!)
That's a good question. Ideally a hoster would accept really large files, accept ftp, keep them online for a long time, and not bandwidth restrict users.

The granddaddy is Rapidshare.com, I don't like their limitations.

A torrent is probably the way to go, but the people on this forum don't like them much, and I'm reluctant to start one until the new mediavps are out.

 
Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (Get it while it lasts!)
Try this one http://gigeshare.com/

I think the limit is 2000MB.

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (Get it while it lasts!)
I checked the gigeshare's terms of use & mediafire's FAQ and gigeshare only promises 90 days after the last download while mediafiles has no time limit ATM and then if needed only the oldest and least download files in deleted.

Useful stuff to know ;7

While smaller parts are litle more cumbersome for high speed users, slow connection like dail-up and (like me) satellite, the smaller files are just the ticket ;)

Thanks Huggybaby,  :yes: for a great mirror for if/when my links turn to vapor :pimp:

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
So if we were to use this ISO, and thanks for doing the assembly on this very much, it will run the game with the movies and everything?  I have the original 3 CD FS2 installed, do I need to uninstall it to install this one?  I wouild like to have both, so i can compare and see the hard work everyone has done but wanted to check first. thanks, my main game research compy has 400 GB harddirve so we should have plenty of room thanks again.
