Re: Official new people thread!
If you are Polish, do you have the Polish version of FS2? If so, we're actually trying to improve the Polish language support in FS2_Open. Could you take a look here please.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.

Re: Official new people thread!
Hmm... I don't have an original FS 1 or 2  install disks (FS2 PL might be in one of my cousins hands), so i think only thing i can do is providing you with VP files (PL version, of FS1) or helping to translate something.
Still, i have to write, that in Polish version of FS1 some (or many) dialogues sound... well, bad at least. Some sound like Ivona (if you know what i mean).

Btw, from what i read here, i concluded, that HLP "purchased" copyright for FS games. Does that mean HLP will be able to distribute Freespace by Internet (download installation ISO for example)?

That's not correct.  Interplay recently purchased all "residual rights" for Freespace, so they own the copyright.  HLP is not allowed to distribute retail Freespace installation media, instead we point people to Good Old Games to purchase Freespace/Freespace2.

I hope that clears this up  :)

I barely understand what you just wrote. But welcome anyway! :D Luckily, with the exception of the hosting costs for the site itself, FSO and HLP aren't donation driven - everything we do here is free for the use and enjoyment of the public at large. So, if you already have a copy of FS2 (or you cam here for one of our standalones like Diaspora, Wing Commander Saga or The Babylon Project) and a computer capable of playing it, you've already spent all the money you're going to ever have to for FSO.

Of course, if you were talking about donating to something else, then ignore me. :)

Ey up! Billy Pilgrim here - a scruffy, disorganised 30something Brit. Good to see everyone, I haven't been lurking more than a few weeks but I've fallen in love with Freespace and with this community. Hope to be able to contribute further awesomeness!

Re: Official new people thread!
Hello! Just only registered to this amazing community. My brother and I were introduced to Freespace 1 back when there was a demo version on Maximum PC. We never got the chance to buy a copy of the game, but we did get our hands on Freespace 2 and it BLEW OUR MINDS. Boasting a great story and awesome stellar combat, it remains one of our most favorite games of all time. :D

So big thank you to the HLPBB community for keeping this fantastic game alive! Woots~!  :yes: :yes: :yes:

BTW, if anyone is keen on starting up another mod or needs some ideas for some future FRED work, I might be able to help out. (Note the word is 'might'; I haven't found a way to balance my time between studies and gaming, but it'll come!) I don't really have any experience with the technical aspects, but I can provide help in terms of storytelling aspects. I don't have much to offer (many ideas could come from other games and stuff, so yeah) but I guess it's something. Haha.

Cheers and keep the good work going!

Re: Official new people thread!
Hi Everyone joining cause I should have long ago been playing Freespace and Freespace 2 since I inherited my parents old desktop pc, and found the demo for freespace sometime before 2010 loved it so much I now have my own copies of FS and FS2.  Anyways I have been regularly going to this website on a daily basis for the better part of 4 years (don't know why i never got around to getting an account  :nervous: )  and I must say YOU GUYS ROCK.  All of the work you guys do I have had so much fun with and I have never seen a gaming community this dedicated to any game ive played in a looooonnnng time.  I still play this game on a regular basis and ive played the Wing Commander,Diaspora, and Babylon 5 total conversions and I have waaayyy to many FS2 mods I enjoy to list. What you have done with this game engine is nothing short of amazing and the continued work you guys put into improving the ingame assets and adding new content and features I feel is nothing short of Incredible.  Shout outs to the SCP team FSU team and everyone else who has helped improve the look of the game or helped with improving the guts of the game itself .  I hope to be able to contribute in some form or fashion even if its just giving feedback and constructive criticism.  I will most likely play this game untill my laptop explodes or Internets collapse.  So in short: Hello Everyone  :D
