Hi. TBP noob here.
Just downloaded and installed, configured, launched & did pilot training with the 2 part TBP DVD. Great stuff - we are all B5 aficionados here, so this was a real happy experience.
Not so good, so far, is Zathras 2.0
D'ld & extracted to the TBP folder. Opened the FS2 Open Launcher 5.5b that came with TBP DVD & went to the MOD tab & selected the Zathras folder by hitting 'Select MOD'. Zathras picture comes up - great so far. Hit 'Apply', then 'Run' and get the same error message reported by Gortef above.
Now, the launcher is running 'fs2_open _3_6_9_INF.exe', as per TBP main game. It now seems that this is NOT the right build? If not, can someone explain which one to use, where to get it and how to install it in TBP folder so the launcher will 'see' it (assuming that it is more than a simple extraction or cut & paste. I note that the launcher DOESN'T 'see' the fred2_open_3_6_9 builds in the TBP folder - that's why I mention this - just trying to anticipate.)
Thanks guys for the great work. Between this, Freespace open, and Homeworld upcoming - I'm a bit overloaded, but a pig in mud (I won't mention Silent Hunter over at SubSim - that's a whole other story!) Just got to figure out how to get some or all of this running on a MacBook Pro, so my boys can start networking on our wireless LAN.
As an aside, both my boys are so taken by all the amazing modding work that they are seeing here, that they are genuinely asking how they can get in to it and learn how to Mod so they, too, can contribute. They are always dreaming up scenarios and designing ships, so, why not? Just wanted you to know that you have inspired at least a couple of noobies to get involved. Thanks.
