Freespace 'not responding'
For some reason, everyone I've tried to  open freespace, it freezes and stops before the intro. The last thing in the log is 'ANI 2_radar 1 with size 209x170 (33.6% wasted). I'd copy the log, but as I'm using a smartphone I'd have to type it out.

Edit: Should have mentioned that this problem started 2 days ago.

Re: Freespace 'not responding'
1) Wrong section, should have posted this in FreeSpace & FreeSpace Open Support

2) Please post a debug log

Did it work okay before this issue?  Did you make any changes to your computer (eg - driver updates, new hardware, new application, etc.)?

Re: Freespace 'not responding'
Whoops, my bad.

My computer doesn't have internet access at the moment, but I'll post a log as soon as it does (As I really don't want to type it buy hand). I  thought it may be a hardware or driver problem too, but I haven't changed anything, so understandably, I'm a bit confused. My second thought was something was wrong with my install, so I  tried my retail install. Still froze. I've also rerouted with the RC 5, 6 and 7 versions of .14. I even tried the build for the Freespace shmup mod. Nothing worked. The debug log didn't say much either. It always froze at the same point (like I mentioned in the OP) which, as far as I can tell, has nothing to do with the freeze.

Well, that probably told you nothing. I'll post the debug log when I have the chance.

Well, at least FRED works.

Re: Freespace 'not responding'
FRED can generate logs too. Load up FRED debug and post fred2_open.log. That'll give us at least 90% of the relevant info.

EDIT : actually that was irrelevant since you can't post anything from your comp anyway. Silly Matth.

Re: Freespace 'not responding'
Also irrelevant seeing as FRED works.  :cool:

Re: Freespace 'not responding'
What kind of phone do you have?

Put PDANet on it and use your phone for internet.  (Works on iPhone (jailbroken), Android, Blackberry, PalmOS, Windows Mobile, maybe more.)

This can also let your phone take a WiFi signal and route it to your computer via USB.

So:

Cell phone signal internet to USB

WiFi signal to USB

Cell phone signal to wireless hotspot generated by your phone

EDIT: I forgot to say, it's not free, full edition costs $15, but it comes with like a 14-day trial, and then it still works, just not on SSL connections (so no signing into sites) HOWEVER, it should work just fine to post your debug log!  ;)

EDIT2: And be sure to use the option to hide your tether if your carrier might charge you tethering (Sprint doesn't ATM, that's what I use, but I hear AT&T and Verizon might)... they like to charge you twice for your data, I know, stupid, but anyways...

Re: Freespace 'not responding'
Well that was an easy fix. I restarted the computer and it works. That didn't help earlier, but I'm not complaining.
