Re: FREESPACE OPEN SCP 3.6.10 OFF-LINE INSTALLER, FS CAMPAIGN PACK v2.0 & FS DVD KIT
Are there any mirrors up for the extra campaigns?
I'm having some trouble with megaupload, not sure of the error exactly, I just keep getting 'this page cannot be displayed' after I click the 'regular download' button.
It could be my awful connection, that'd be the most likely culprit, but I'm not sure; ideas?

I'm using JDownloader a lot more these days.  Works brilliantly with automating Megaupload downloads and a whole load more free file hosting services.

I've downloaded the FreeSpace Open 3610 off-line installer - parts 1, 2, & 3, and the FS Campaign pack v2.0 (I chose Options 1 & 2 from the top of this thread). So far I understand that all the media packs, etc. that I previously had had to download using the old 3.6.10 installer back in July of 2009 are all included in these new files that I've d/l tonight and that after I install tonight's d/l stuff on top of my FreeSpace 2 game (once I get my new PC*) that I d/l from GOG.com, I won't ever have to d/l anything else, plus I'll be able to simply install everything on top of FreeSpace 2 from GOG.com, next, I'll be able to archive everything by burning my main FreeSpace 2 folder onto a blank DVD, right?
Actually, if this pack hasn't been updated since its release, it does NOT contain the newer version of the 3.6.10 MediaVPs, so you'll have to download those from the MediaVPs release thread at the FreeSpace Upgrade Project board. Or at least the patch for the MediaVPs.

But once you do have a working installation of FSO on your computer, yes: you can simply burn the entire \freespace2\ folder onto a DVD (if it fits) and you'll have your backup right there. When the time comes, just punch that DVD into a computer, copy the folder onto the harddrive, run Launcher.exe and that's pretty much it.

So, HAS this installer been updated??  I downloaded it, installed it and also downloaded the updates since it's release.  It has Launcher 5.5e in it and the executables look the same as the updates, V1.03.01 in the 'Product Version' box under properties (Win)

Also the MediaVP's seem the same... Same file sizes and the updated ones show modified date of 9th August where as the ones in this pack show 12 August.

Game loads without incident.

If some one can confirm whether this package is up to date (Obviously, save for the new 3.6.12 RC2) it would be helpful.

Cheers

The online installer is up-to-date with the latest stable (as in, feature complete and released as finished) versions of everything it can install (The Blue Planet Director's Cut not included, unfortunately).

Unstickied this for the time being, due to it being severely out of date. Can someone make an update?

Why would you want to use this? It's wildly out of date.

Aren't all the Installers out of date?

No, Turey's is up to date (just a bit shaky).

i don't know of one, but there is a pretty much comprehensive list of campaigns with their direct download links here

you're also far more likely to get a working version from there than this REALLY old pack.

There is no reason to use this pack, it's way out of date.
