Re: Official new people thread!
Thanks for the help. I installed FS2 with MediaVPs and it looks good.

I'd like to play FS1 first but is there any updates for it like for FS2?

FSPort (a mod for FS2) will do that.

Re: Official new people thread!
Welp, hello.
I don't really have much of a history with FS2. My only childhood memories of it was playing the demo with a busted joystick, and failing miserably.
I rediscovered FS2, and the community at HLP, only about a year ago. I've been lurking pretty much ever since. Although I don't have any programming or artistic talent to speak of, I can still see that there is some really amazing work going on here.
I don't really have much else to say, so cheers!

Re: Official new people thread!
Keyboard is the way to go if you don't have a joystick (and you CAN be one of the best players around with it), but nothing beats the joystick for additional realism.

Take your time and look around. We're not going anywhere. :)

Re: Official new people thread!
Since this seems to be the place to do it, hi everyone.

My Freespace story is a little different to everyone elses. I was about 5 or 6 when I got Freespace 2 (It might have actually been the colossus version, I never got far) and I loved it. However, I soon lost the game and forgot about it. All I could remember was the the mission where you try to stop Bosch (The Romans Blunder?) Years later I found the name in an old schoolbook of mine, but wasn't sure if it was the right game. I googled it, realised it was the right game and immediately bought it of GOG.

Edit: Should probably have mentioned that I have been lurking for the past year or so, and have played most of the recommended mods (Blue Planet, Derelict, Sync, WoD, etc.)

Re: Official new people thread!
So, just curious, what are your thoughts about the FS1 campaign after playing FS2 beforehand?  Or did you play FSPort or FS1 Retail before finishing FS2?

I played FSPort after Freespace 2 (and Blue Planet) and it was great. Although I still prefer Freespace 2, the FSPort had more of a feeling of dread, probably because you knew how to kill the Lucifer, but were unable to (Although I missed the beams, capital ships didn't seem nearly as deadly). The Sathanases (never knew how to spell the plural) were just plain unstoppable, so it felt like there was no point in trying to fight them.

Hmm.  So, when the Terran-Vasudan War project comes out, you should play it.  (And see how deadly capships are with no shields!  ;)  )  (Not sure if there other FS-universe mods pre-shield tech, anyone know?)

Hi, I am a long time lurker on HLP and a little bit on the VWBB before that. I would like to express my gratitude for all the effort that people have put in to improve Freespace as well as keeping it alive. It's really amazing how far the SCP, FSU, the numerous mods and campaigns have taken this game over the years. I think we have a very passionate and talented community, I'm excited to see what will be accomplished in the future and hope I have the chance to make a contribution. Here's to 10 more years of Freespace!
