Some of the images are dead. You might want to replace them, as I still point people to this when they're having trouble.

Re: Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer - Walkthrough
Hmm... they shouldn't be... I didn't delete them off of ImageShack, IIRC.  I'll check it out, thx.  Good thing I still have the piccys on the Hard Disk.

EDIT: Done.  I guess I'll have to keep an eye on this, as ImageShack seems to delete either unused or overused pictures, I'm not sure which.

Re: Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer - Walkthrough
Hi -

I used the installer on Linux, and I think I followed all the directions.  I can't find a launcher, so I just run fs2_open from the command line.  Unfortunately, it keeps segfaulting.  When I try fs2_open-debug, I get a lot of messages about not being able to parse files in the logfile.  I tried building the code.  It works - sort of.  I have looked all over - anyone know where I can get some help?

Ya... taylor's the Linux guru.  Either post in FreeSpace & FreeSpace Open Support or perhaps The FreeSpace Source Code Project > Cross-Platform Development.  (Not sure where you Linux guys get your builds, but you might want to try the latest Xt build from The FreeSpace Source Code Project > Recent Builds.)

Re: Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer - Walkthrough
?  Explain.  It's not complicated... I'm just trying to save you some download time.  Trust me... once you finish doing it, you're pretty much all set to play BtRL and any other FS2-based TCs online.  If you are having trouble with a specific step or steps, let me know.

Grr... some pics appear to have dropped out... again!  I'm going to find another image hoster.  ImageShack users be warned!

Re: Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer - Walkthrough

Hi FreeSpace is one of my favorite games of all time but I have been having trouble getting it up. I used the installer to install and all installed perfectly but now when I try to run I get this message.

[email protected]:~/Desktop/g/freespace$ sh ./fs2_open
fs2_open.bin: pcm_params.c:2351: sndrv_pcm_hw_params: Assertion `err >= 0' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

is there anyone who can help me get the awesome game working

Re: Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer - Walkthrough
Hmm... looks like you're running Linux?  Post here: http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/board,113.0.html

If no response, bump your post until someone notices... not too many Linux users, I don't think.

 
Re: Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer - Walkthrough
I must ask, I've been having a problem with the game since my new hard drive (lost the last one) due to some missing or currupt .dll file that I've replaced repeatedly. As I write this, I am installing the game and I dont see the cmd promt window. Do you have to activate it or does it just show up? It never did the first time I downloaded FreeSpace...

Re: Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer - Walkthrough
Possible explanations:

1. You are not playing in OpenGL. Go to the Launcher's Video tab and select OpenGL instead of Direct3D.
2. Your graphics card's drivers suck. Try to update them.

Re: Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer - Walkthrough
Hum, no answer... anyway, I cant even get the launcher to run, the .exe to run, or the _debug.exe to run, all thanks to this stupid .dll that windows explorer says IS THERE but the game wont find... What's up with this?

Hello HaloBuff...
you might want to go to the freespace support thread and post your problem there in more detail.

Anyway, about the .dll file, copy the same file in your system32 folder and in the fs2 folder and check if that solves it... that's all i can think of right now, maybe other can give you better help.

Re: Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer - Walkthrough
Uh, it said to post here if I'm having problems, when I start up the game there isn't any sound at all. It's because it says no sound in the launcher, i think, but I'm not sure how to fix that. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer - Walkthrough
1) Select Generic Software from the drop-menu instead of No Sound.
2) If 1 fails, update audio drivers.
3) Install OpenAL.
4) If OpenAL has been installed and still things don't work, fix your OpenAL.

Re: Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer - Walkthrough
Okay, I can't find an installer in the openal download folder, and I'm not that good with computers. How do I install it?

Re: Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer - Walkthrough
You were searching from the OpenAL site? Aye, it can be a bit unclear. There is a link to the installer in my signature. It's the same installer, just hosted elsewhere.

Just download the installer, run it and click Next/Yes/always the most positive option until it informs you that OpenAL has been installed, hmm.

Re: Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer - Walkthrough
hopefully one of you guys are still checking these forums, because i like this game and want to play.  my problem is that no mods will run. if i try a freespace 2 mod it just plays freespace 2. i can't even play any missions for the fsport or mods for it. program dies and it gives me a stack trace.

suggestions please.
