well if you set up the scp right (mediavps are in a separate folder) and you don't use any commands  you will get exactly the same results as the original game.

 
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

I don't understand why you wouldn't use the online installer, from what I know, its contents are all fully updated. Plus, it downloads the complete package, including retail. If you cannot access the internet on the computer your trying to put it on, you can just download it zip it and copy it to dvd ( YOU CANNOT JUST PUT THE FILES RAW ON THE DVD, IT WILL SCREW UP THE GAME! ). Although if you just want to download the files directly, the mirrors heres the links below. Note: You don't need to zip these because they have been prezipped for you :D

The only files you need to download from my mirror are below. (this is the complete set of retail files)
act1anis.zip
act2anis.zip
act3anis.zip
core.zip
Root_fs2.zip(replace the fs2_root.vp in the core.zip with this one)
higraph.zip
music.zip
voice.zip
multi-mission-pack.vp(optional)
multi-voice-pack.vp(optional)
FS2OGGcutscenepack.vp(FS2_Open only).

I will get the links for the FS2_Open files from Turey when he logs back on his messenger. I have copied this post onto Tureys post for his installer.

that post was only about the included beam screensaver, nothing more, it doesn't refer to the game content ;)

the game content included is currently up to date and the installer makes easy as pie for anyone to get the game up and running without the player needing to versed in FSSCP install lore :)

When I used the online installer for the first time, I told it to download everything and it downloaded some things that were redundant (i.e. - it downloaded the .ogg & .mve files when you only need one type, and those are like the biggest files in the thing, so my installer just installs the ogg versions of the cutscences, also the online installer seams to be waaay slow and I *think* it downloads items in an uncompressed state (I may be wrong) My installer makes it nice, simple and easier on the bandwidth)

Not to mention it looks heck-a-cool! 8)

Nah, it downloads them & then unzips them, then deletes the .zip files, IIRC

For most of the files, that's what it does.

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
Ok, I see merit in both an online installer and a dvd.  For people wanting to have something to distribute that they know works, who aren't themselves too well versed in DVD mastering, it's nice to have something to hand out to friends.  However the online installer will always be the way to get the most up to date versions installed, as long as people keep their versioning files up to date.  Now, it would be nicer if the DVD did not ignore the fact that there is a very nice online updater already available and were to include a version of it as well.  Then the DVD could do its install, and then offer the option to check for updates online.  Without that, it becomes difficult to update from the static dvd versions without subsequent patching, and becomes harder on the end user to get updates because they've not even been to hard light yet, and would have no idea where to look for updated files.  That said, it's still very good to have some sort of iso version to distribute.

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
BTW - the updater is also installed as the game is installed from the DVD so even if the DVD content needs updating, you are already set to get them & will only have to download the updated items. I'm evil with my installers like that  ;7

Oh, well then.  I have absolutely no complaints.  Excellent release.

Does the DVD setup put an icon in the Start Menu for the Installer?  And, can the DVD install over a Retail FS2 patched to v1.2?  I would find out myself, but I'm right in the middle of re-structuring my hard drives.

 
Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
It does make an entry for updating in the Start menu. Don't know about question two.

HB : I tried downloading through the links you posted, and all but part 32 worked fine. However, I can't do anything without part 32! can you see if you can access it and, if not, re-up it?

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
Thanks Turey. I've been saving those files for just such a report. I'll check and re-upload part 32 and hopefully it will work. If not, I/we're in bad shape.  :shaking:

BTW, I just ran your installer/updater on hip63's iso. Everything seems to work except fsport. The updater wants to download fsport again, into an fsport directory, because hip63 used the ShivanSPS convention of Fs1_port_3. I don't know how that can be ironed out. Could you make your updater check for and accept Fs1_port_3?

<edit> Hmm, MediaFire says it can't access the file right now, try later (but it's been downloaded 3 times already). Is that the problem you're having? Or did you download the file and it's corrupt?

Not easily, and not quickly. I'm swamped with work right now.

That's the problem I've been having, but it's said that for at least a day. It doesn't sound like they'll ever find it. :(

OK, I'll replace it on MediaFire then. In the meantime, try this: http://rapidshare.com/files/21744595/hip63FreeSpaceSCPiso.7z.032

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
QUESTION! With this DVD, will it always be the latest version of FSSCP? Like, you install it and the updater makes it the latest install?

 
Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
Yes.

@Turey and hip63: MediaFire is weird---I replaced that file, still no good. I guess the Rapidshare upload will have to do. I'm guessing everything went OK for Turey.
