Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Be sure to check out BP2 multiplayer as well.  There are a couple co-op and TvT missions involving player capital ships.

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Never tried the multi. How does it work?

A set of co-operative missions and gauntlets against the AI as well as battles against other human players, including dogfights with each player in a capship.

You are going to have so much fun.

If you have any setup issues post here.

 
Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Assuming I didn't set something up wrong though, it appears that multiplayer is limited to certain times due to the relatively low number of people in FS2's community now.

More the relatively low number of people in the multiplayer community, but yes. People set up games on IRC or via the forums.

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Hi,  noob here but not to FS2,  which I bought when it came out,  in '99 I guess.  Always loved it and now even more since I seem to have navigated through the installation of FSO.  I am having some slight problems with using the launcher  and getting mods to install and play well.  Currently working on "Wings of Dawn". 
Anyway,  I never had FS1 and am wondering if I can get it anywhere now, such as Good Old Games,  and if I do,  can I just install it into the FS2 folder.  Sorry if some of this belongs in other forums,  just point me in the right direction...

Thanks! :)

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
1. We can see the default-size font just fine.

2. What problems with the Launcher and getting mods to install?

3. FS1 is sold by GOG and you can  buy it from there. But it is a separate game. You cannot install it into your FS2 installation. If you want awesome graphical stuff of FSO while playing the original FS1 campaign, install FSPort (a mod for FS2/FSO).

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Thanks for responding.  Lg font is easier for me to read,  so I just assume it is for everyone else too.

Sometimes I click on a mod and although it displays in the window,  I cannot get it to load in the actual game.  And,  I'll admit,  I probably don't completely understand how to use the launcher.  Wings of Dawn seems to be running OK now. 

How can I set the forums to display the most recent messages first?

Thanks. :)

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Should be in your profile settings at the top.  And, if you think large font is easier, hold down your CTRL key on your keyboard and using your mousewheel to zoom in / out.  Chances are, anyone who has troubles seeing text already has their browser zoomed in.  So, your large text would be rendered as GINORMOUS.  :lol:

OK,  thanks,  got it.

 
Re: Semi-official new people thread!
So, I'm not really new, but I figured I'd quit lurking and introduce myself. Been playing FS since I picked up the retail FS1 back when it first came out. Been completely addicted ever since. I'm surprised that the community is still so active after all this time; it's very rare. But I'm sure as heck not going to complain.

I wish I knew about about something useful like texturing or modeling so I could give back, but for now, my undying gratitude will have to do.  :rolleyes:

Sure, where should I start? I have Photoshop experience, just not texturing experience.  :D

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
you want a tut on how to texture?, well there are a lot of different methods out there and few tutorials actually, this one can be found on the modding portal here in hlp: http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=43189.0

Personally I think this is one of those things that cannot be learned in other way than getting practice, UV'ing and texturing are some of the skills hlp lacks the most.

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Hullo, I'm new here and new to the Freespace universe. Back when, I played Elite & Wings on the Amiga 500 and even Star Trek on the BBC 'puter. Currently somewhere in the beginning of Act 3 of the Great War, playing on the 2nd easiest setting, having great fun and occasionally scoring kills. I am not l33t.

Nice surprise to see such a large community supporting this game, kudos to you all!

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
I guess this is where all the new people check in, semi-officially at least.

Hello yall. This looks to be a lively place. There looks to be a plethora of mods and campaigns. Where should I start? I'm thinking of playing the original campaigns with the fancy new builds before I start digging in. Can anyone recommend me a few good campaigns to dig into after I get done with the originals? (Also, how do I go about playing the original Freespace campaign since I only have Freespace 2 on GOGs? I seem to have misplaced my original copies of the games.) I'm currently running the open installer and I've stuck all the files into a folder on my desktop. I just found the helpful noob friendly guide.

Hey Everyone!

Just joined here, although I've been playing FreeSpace campaigns and mods from here for about a month.  I'm planning on making a few myself, um, .... eventually.

Excellent work everyone - awesome games!
