I've just bought FS1 and 2 off GOG. It seems there's meant to be a community installed, but it's currently not working? Instead, I have manually installed Freespace Open, wxLauncher, and FSPort.
How come I don't have any weapons? I don't have any on my ship, and there are none to select from in the pre-mission weapon loadout.
I've just checked, and I'm not suffering this problem trying to play just the normal Freespace 2 campaign, so it can't be a problem with how I've installed Freespace Open.
I have FSPort installed at C:\Games\Freespace Open\fsport3_4, with fsport3_4.vp, fsport-missions.vp and sparky_hi_fs1.vp in that directory. As I understand, that's the minimum you need to be able to play. Not so?
