Re: Semi-official new people thread!
I thought FS 1 had homing missiles.

it did but I understand there are differences in how they work between the engines

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
In other words, "homing" was more of a relative term in FS1, at least when it came to Interceptors. :p

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Hey wobble! Hey Jeff Vader, thanx 4 info on previous posts. :yes:

 
Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Yeah, if I correctly recall, in FS1, Interceptors and Phoenix Vs are affected by this funny lil' loss of faith just when they're about to nail the target :wtf:

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
I suggest playing FS1 through the FSPort mod for FS2.

I wouldn't have a problem with playing FS1 Retail if capital ships didn't have the graphics issues they have that lets you see through the other side of their hull. (Z-culling?)

 
Re: Semi-official new people thread!
I don't quite remember such a problem in-game. Only in tech room, maybe. Might be wrong, though. I still have an original copy of Conflict: FreeSpace. Two very old CD's... And it's the weirdest thing, one of them has a crack in it, but it still functioned, when I last tried, years ago. Anyway, I have an older computer which is the only one that can run FS (properly patched) without issues. I might put the old comp back into use just to enjoy a little Vintage round of FS :D Sometime soon...

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Hi guys, I've just registered on this forums, after lurking here for a while :)
I wanted to say thank you for this awesome thing that is SCP with all its mods, it was first time i was able to play FS1 actually.
I'll stay here for a while, don't know if i will be able to contribute anything :/

Also i would like to apologize for my bad English, as it's not my first language. I'm still trying to master it.

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Why is it that some people say that and then speak better English than some of the native speakers? :p

Because the English native speakers don't pay any attention in school. :P
You spend 18 years around English speaking, English writing, it shouldn't be possible to fail English classes. Of course I've been proven wrong on that assumption four years ago.
About half of the class for that matter.

I think almost every person I've seen say that speaks better English than 90% of the people I know. :D

I will vouch for that, being from the UK and knowing that my standard of English causes some around here to face palm

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Thanks, don't know if what all of you had said was about me,  but you'll soon realize what i was talking about, I've got almost 0% knowledge of English grammar.
Everything i write or speak is done by heart.
And this will soon show up, if it didn't already.

Anyway, i don't want to make a new thread about it, so i'll ask here
I currently have 3.6.12 version of FS and MediaVPS, but i saw that there is .13 versions, fsport v3.3 uses them iirc.
(i know that this is a developers build) but can i download it somewhere ? engine and MediaVPS, should i even bother with those or just wait for .14 release

Here's where you can get the 3.6.13 builds: Nightly Builds

Windows is nearly always updated each night, Mac less so, and if you're on Linux, it's best to build from source anyway  :)

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Greetings people. I joined mostly because I got into FreeSpace after seeing videos of it on youtube and hearing about it from friends on another board. Been playing for a while now and I quite like it. Obviously, I like the Shivans. No, I'm not actually british. My username came from a dream I had.
