Been a long time and I've forgotten how to troubleshoot...
Hey guys, I just pulled a copy of FS2 + some old FSPort files off of an old flash drive and I'm trying to get FSPort started but I'm getting A LOT of errors. (By old. I mean the most recent build I had for the .exe was 3_6_10)

I downloaded the 3_6_18 non SSE .exe and re-downloaded fsport and fsport-mediavps but I'm getting a ton of errors whenever I start the game. Furthermore, when I run fsport-mediavps I don't see any of the nice graphics. I know I had this problem before but I don't know how to fix it. Here are some of the errors (There's a lot so I won't post them all; they probably all have the same cuase)

EDIT: Realized I forgot the 3612 mediavps, but I'm still getting this

Can you please post or attach the fs2_open.log created when you ran the DEBUG executable?

Re: Been a long time and I've forgotten how to troubleshoot...
Here you go! Also, I'm noticing that some of the really nice ship models work (like the one on the cruiser in the first mission) but it seems like only some of the effects are being applied to my Apollo and the other ships. (The new blue lights are on, but the hull remains the same old white from the original FS1)

Thanks for taking the time.  :)

Wrong file. Please post the fs2_open.log.

Re: Been a long time and I've forgotten how to troubleshoot...
I don't see anything in your log that would prevent upgraded models from appearing. I suggest deleting or moving mediavps_3612\data and fsport-mediavps\data if they exist.

I also suggest the following:

Code: [Select]
Deprecated flag '-spec' found. Please remove from your cmdline.
Deprecated flag '-glow' found. Please remove from your cmdline.
Deprecated flag '-env' found. Please remove from your cmdline.
As those lines say, remove those flags from your command line; you don't need them anymore.

Code: [Select]
  -mipmap
"Enable mipmapping" doesn't really enable mipmapping. Rather, it creates mipmaps for textures that don't have them, and most textures do have them. For this reason, you should disable this option unless you have a good reason for keeping it on (which is why it's in the Troubleshoot section).
"Your fighter is running out of oil.  Please check under the hood and add more if necessary"
--strings.tbl, entry 177

"Freespace is very tired.  It is shutting down to get some rest."
--strings.tbl, entry 178

You should probably also move your whole install to C:\Games\FreeSpace2 - it'll save you crashes in the long run.

Re: Been a long time and I've forgotten how to troubleshoot...
Are you still getting crashes or errors when you try to launch? Sure you're playing with a release and not a debug build?

Re: Been a long time and I've forgotten how to troubleshoot...
It seems to be working pretty well now. The models look a lot better! δΊ†
