Official new people thread!
*Mod edit: If you're a newly-registered member, feel free to post in here and say hi!*

Hey.  Just registered.  Been 'lurking' for a good time now because FRED2 scares the hell out of me  :eek2: and I have nothing but respect for how you have improved and reinvented this game from when I bought the original GOTY edition.

Would just like to say thanks for all the projects that have made my most memorable game into (dang used up all my good polite terms) something incredible.

Thanks for your time and effort HLP community!

P.S. when is Freespace 3 gonna come out?!?  :P [/bad first joke]

Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I didn't want to clog up any of the boards with a new thread, so I thought this would be the best place.

I just wanted to say thank-you to the community for keeping this game -- nay, valuable cultural contribution -- alive! I recently returned to this game after about 10 years, and the work that has gone into this is astounding. The graphics look brilliant, and the extensibility puts modern games to shame. Combined with the great story and gameplay of Freespace (1&2) this makes Freespace 2 Source Code Project the proud leader of the genre of space-flight simulation games.

I wish many decades of success to the project, and if I can find a talent in myself which doesn't involve just sitting on my butt and playing FS2Open all day, I would be glad to help the project!

If I capture any good moments in the game, I will of course post the pictures (game looks great in 1920x1080 with a core 2 quad 2.4GHz, NVIDIA Geforce 8600, 3.2GB ram rig!).

They're not retail, but they're very old.  Probably about 3.6.7 or 8 Media VPs.

8. Or 10 Beta at best. And without any Advanced. An oldie, but I like it. The lighting was good (in my very personal and very humble opinion) and... Idunno. Looks scary.
