help Installing / finding all the software needed please
hello, I  would need some help if anyone can ..  this is  the thurd time i  have tried to  put freespace together . I  wanted to install all the media vp's and flashy effects .. but im unsure how or  what  files i  need i  tried a  few times now and  when i  start freespace i  get errors
And when i  tied to  play  Blueplanet war in heaven  it would give me  never ending errors to  click  thrue ... when i  played normal freespace it only gave me  9  errors and i  clicked thrue them and  played the game ... but  this time i  want it  installed correctly ...   i  Have installed Freeespace and currently running the OPen sorce install thingy  where it  downloads and installs the files .. i  choose "The works" _Absolutly evrything_

Now .. what  Files do  i  need and how do i  apply  them , Please feel free to  talk to  my  like im a  moron .. couse at this point i am  thanx  for the help in advance :)

Re: help Installing / finding all the software needed please
This tells you what to do. It contains a link to the MediaVPs release thread. That thread will, in great detail, tell you what to do in order to get the MediaVPs installed correctly.

This will give you instructions on how you can help us help you. You could try it before attempting to reinstall anything. That way we might be able to tell you exactly what you are missing.

Re: help Installing / finding all the software needed please
If you post a debug log (as described in the second link JeffVader posted), we can tell you what you're missing.

For starters, post a screenshot of your FreeSpace 2 directory, please.

Open the Launcher. Despite whatever it says, click through the warnings. Once the Launcher is open, click "Browse", then select "fs2_open_3_6_12r_INF.exe", click "Open", click "Apply".

You should now have successfully selected the sexy new FSO 3.6.12 as the build you will use when playing. Go back to the installation instructions and see what features to tick on etc.
