No don't do that.  3.6.10 mediavps need to be in the mediavps directory.  3.6.12 will install into a new directory where mods that are compatible with them will look for them.  DO NOT reuse the old directory. 

The patch files are available in the 3.6.12 mediavp release thread.
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

So MV_Maximum and patches install into \MediaVPs_3612 which is in the root FS2 folder while the previous \MediaVPs (3.6.10) and patches/fixes go to mediavps ... What about if I don't do any mods (other than standard SPC of course)?

What you say is correct, I don't understand your question though.

If I don't intend on installing Blue Planet, for example, can I simply make do without 3.6.10 vps (\mediavps) and just play the regular campaign SPC with only \mvps_3612?

Blue Planet 1+2 both require the 3.6.12 MVPs, as do Vassago's Dirge and Wings of Dawn, but other than that yes you should be okay.

So you're saying \MediaVPs can be deleted since the launcher is pulling from \MediaVPs_3612 is that right?

Edit: What I'm saying is that I don't have any of the mods installed. I'm planning on a fresh install and don't intend to play Inferno or any other mods. Should I simply delete the old \mediavps folder and make a new one with the 3.6.12 vps in it, or does it have to be called "\mediavps_3612"? What you were assuming is that I have other mods installed and I don't, other than the old version of mediavps.

No. Keep your old mediavps folder, create a new one called mediavps_3612 for the new MediaVPs, it should absolutely be called that and there is no reason to delete your old MVPs. Simply select mediavps_3612 to play SCP with said MVPs.

Any reason why the old \mediavps shouldn't be deleted (other than other mods)? Does the regular SPC FS2 campaign refer back to it?

No, and I suppose you can delete it if you want, but if you ever plan to play mods like Derelict or The Procyon Insurgency that are not yet 3.6.12 compatible you'll need to track it down and download it and that's a hassle.

That's the point. I don't intend to. I just wanted a fresh 3.6.12 SPC install. No mods or whatnot.

But unless you need hard drive space you lose absolutely nothing from keeping the 3.6.10s around and you gain at least some conceivable benefit. I mean you know the scenario now, you can decide whatever you like, I'm just saying.

I would actually like the hard drive space. 3.6.10 took up a lot and not to mention the number of fixes were a lot. Fresh installing 3.6.12 with only that one patch gets rid of much of what I don't need.

One other thing: Does the new 3.6.12 mediavps need to be under a folder called "\mediavps_3612" or can it just be any folder name (like "\mediavps", or will that create a conflict with the launcher)?

It needs to be mediavps_3612.  End of story.

In your case where you are NOT going to play any mods, in theory you can name your MediaVPs folder to almost anything. mediavps_3612, mediavps, jericho, bananaphone, anything. Because you'll simply select that folder as your active mod from the Launcher. The name doesn't really matter in that case. Just avoid really long names.

But officially I also support sticking to the mediavps_3612 name. In the unlikely case that you do decide to play some mods that require the MediaVPs.

When I try to download this update, I'm getting a CRC failure from both windows and 7-Zip.

I tried two different ones, the SSE2 from this thread, and also the SSE2 link in the Nightly Builds thread for 15 February 2011.

Well, I tested one out last night, the first build set in the post.  Downloaded and extracted fine with 7-zip.  They must be getting corrupted somewhere else, as no one else is having a problem.  Perhaps they're not finishing for some reason?

Hmm, well I cleared everything and redownloaded SSE2 from the front and I'm getting a different checksum than the one listed.  Which I don't know if you can tell anything from it or not but here it is:

c4428bf54d3efa07629cf3b874de6eb8

I drilled down through the links and allowed the fs2downloads.com  and ntlworld.com websites in noscript.  Which I don't think was affecting it since I'm getting the same error after as I was before.

Just tried downloading the SSE2 INF build from this thread and works fine. Mirrored here, if you want to try it.
