Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Well, most recent is Sol:  A History.  I haven't kept too much track, but there were 2 or 3 others that I simply screwed up by not having a mediavps folder (I had 3612 properly named, but had named version 3610 in the same manner 12 was... which doesn't work so well when mods that use 10 do not actually refer to a "mediavps_3610" folder).  I was still figuring things out and wasn't yet aware that the naming scheme was only just introduced with 3612. 

S:aH is iffy for me mostly because INFR1 seems to be practically impossible for me to install properly for some reason.  INF:A works alright, but it seems to be difficult to find much information on the release, what with all the reworking that is apparently going on right now. 




Edit:  I managed to get INFR1 to work.  Disappointed with where it ended, etc, yada.   More importantly, Sol:  A History STILL doesn't work.  And now EVERY other mod now alt-tabs and brings up the debugger about 5 times when I try to start it. 

Edit again:  Bah, just remembered something from one of INFR1's text files said something about moving the campaign file into the INFR1 folder instead of leaving it in the base.  That seems to have worked for fixing the errors all the other mods started giving.  I'll try out S:AH again after I finish up the mod I am currently playing, but odds are it works now too.  Sorry to bug you. 




In the mean time, one question.  I tried installing The Babylon Project's mod a couple days ago, but the exe installation file seemed to make windows explorer hang, forcing me to enter task manager and close down stuff until the system resumes functional normality.  There appears to be nowhere to download the mod in an unpackaged form (i.e. the zip and rar files most mods come in).  And since a whole bunch of mods from that universe appear to all require TBP, I am kinda stuck as such.  Is there any way I can install TBP without an exe file?

Yes. The game engine will attempt to use and and all .vp files that are either in \freespace2\ or an active mod folder. That applies to INF .vp files that are in \freespace2\ . And since they contain all sorts of conflicting stuff, things will break if you have them in \freespace2\ . Just remember: put each and every mod into its own subfolder. (Though in this case it wasn't as much your fault, since that stupid Inferno installer puts those files in \freespace2\ .)

And remeber, that TBP is not a regular mod, but a standalone game. If you have FS2 in, say, C:\games\freespace2\ , "install" TBP to C:\games\tbp\ or something like that. Completely outside your FS2 installation.

Hello people, how are you doing right there? It looks like HLPBB sounds great and good to hang in.

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
The TBP link you provided there appears to be for macs and linux.  I should clarify.  I have a windows computer, but despite that the windows TBP installation exe doesn't work.  As in, my system hangs about 2 or 3 seconds after trying to open the file. 



Edit:  Sol: A History is still not working.  INFR1 and the media things are set to proper folders and all, but S:AH seems to call on a bunch of .wav and .ogg files that do not exist when I try to start running the mod.

I will also attempt to clarify. The exact same TBP will run on Windows, Linux and MacOS. The only difference comes from the fact that the FSO build you run TBP with must match your operating system. If you follow the link I gave, you can download TBP in a non-exe installer format. All you need to do after download is
- extract the  **** to C:\games\tbp\ or somesuch
- grab a good FSO build, such as 3.6.12
- install Zathras.

There is also a dedicated board here for TBP. Perhaps you should visit it.

I'd bet money it's not actually causing your PC to hang at all. For reasons best known to them the TBP team at the time decided to go with a single massive VP file rather than several smaller ones. The result was that your PC is probably just slowing down while it tries to figure out what to do with such a massive file. Just start the installation process and go away for 10-20 mins or so.

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Ohhaidere.  I've been playing Freespace 2 ever since I brought it lat October /me checks GOG.com for exact date.  After playing through the main campaign for about a dozen times, I more recently tried out 'some' of the mods.  I finally registered.

And I just completed an escort mission with a ship a 1% hull.  No kidding.  When a ship's captain reports hull integerty below critical, you know it's in trouble. As soon as I realized what was happening, I took screenshots as proof.  However, both imageshack and MS paint apparently do not like .tga files, so uploading them is a whole another matter   :banghead:


Edit:  Got it, thanks Jr2!  I uploaded the screenshots I took during the mission here: http://img651.imageshack.us/g/screen0027pl.png/

The mission in question was 'Exodus', main Freespace 2 Campaign.  Lambda 1 was at 2% hull for a good chunk of the battle.  I was thinking 'If I so much as sneeze on it, it will explode, but the battle is pretty much over'.  And then a lone Nahema bomber jumps in and takes it down to 1% before getting duel-trebucheted.
