Hey guys, sorry about spamming up these boards, I figured this was a different topic so I'd make a new thread.

I've just been messing around with FSOpen and noticed that when ships go into warp, it's the regular old fashioned retail warp effect and not the cool wormhole type effect FSOpen is supposed to have.

I've got all the vps I need and everything is working great and looking good, except for that one problem. I couldn't find anything using Search so I guess this isn't a common problem? In my mvps folder I've got a folder named Data, in that a folder called Cache and there is a file named warp.ibx...is this the file I need, and it's just faulty?

Cheers for any help, guys. Very much appreciating what you've done with FSOpen. From the viewpoint of a regular fan with no coding experience it's all very cool and impressive stuff.

do you have the feature enabled in the launcher?

I do, yeah. And the flash at the end appears and everything, just not the cool effect. Strangely enough it did actually work the first time I tried FSOpen, but I deleted and re-installed everything (long story) and now it doesn't seem to be working. Very strange.

I've just realised that although I'm currently working through FSPort, I should really have put this in the general FSOpen forum, sorry about that.

I take it all the effects like this are grouped in the same vp file...I'm wondering whether I should delete the file I have and replace it with a new one in case it's corrupted or somesuch?

it's not likely corrupted.
just post your launcher flags and the files in the media vps.

OK I'm not entirely sure what the launcher flags are, I think it's this:F:\Games\Freespace\Freespace 2\fs2_open_3_6_9.exe -mod Freespace,mediavps -spec -glow -env -jpgtga -mipmap -nomotiondebris -2d_poof -missile_lighting -dualscanlines -targetinfo -orbradar -rearm_timer -ballistic_gauge -ship_choice_3d -3dwarp -warp_flash  -ambient_factor 75 -no_emissive_light -spec_exp 11 -spec_point .6 -spec_static .8 -spec_tube .4 -ogl_spec 80

As you can see 3dwarp's there, so I don't know why it's not happening for me anymore. The files in the media vps? I've just got the regular ones, mv_effects.vp, mvmodels.vp etc, and the patches I need. I'm pretty sure everything's downloaded...sorry if I misunderstood you entirely!

Try deleting any \data\cache\ folders.

And words like "usual" and "regular" have such varied meanings. What vps exactly do you have in \mediavps\? And is it so that the warp effect looks new and funky but not 3D? Or does it look retail altogether?

Ah thanks for the help guys but it's sorted now, was some stupidity on my end that was causing it. It's all cool now, thanks.
