Re: Unofficial patch for FSPort MediaVPs
ok....i've been away from the community for errr....a while... anyway, I've been trying to install everything and put everything together the last couple of days and i've managed to get fsport working with 3612 vps, but even with this patch i cannot get the 2014 vps to work...on the loading splash screen it tells me there's 71 errors.....I have no idea how to resolve

Please post your fs2_open.log file.  Instructions on how to do this can be found in this post.

Code: [Select]

Well, that's not going to work. The folder name should be "mediavps_2014".

Re: Unofficial patch for FSPort MediaVPs
ah I think that was me while i was trying to fiddle with it trying to get it to work  :nervous: ...it now loads without errors  ;)

It looks like some of ship models haven't updated though, such as the Apollo, Valkyrie & Anubis and a few others. looks like they have reverted back to retail spec. which looks really odd when its next to the new models that are working...

You do not have the FSPort and the FSPort media VPs in the proper folder.

Found root pack 'C:\Games\FreeSpace2\fsport-mediavps\odeon_fs1.vp'

All these files should only be in the FSPort folder you appear to have them in both.

This is most likely the cause of your problems.

Re: Unofficial patch for FSPort MediaVPs
removing those files from the fsport-mediavps file breaks the game completely

Re: Unofficial patch for FSPort MediaVPs
You appear to be missing the fsport-mediavps altogether.

These two files need to be in the fsport-mediavps file

You may want to go to this post: ( http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=84358.0 )
and check your installation. 
Most of your problems have come from the fact that the fsport and fsport-mediavps are incorrectly installed.

Re: Unofficial patch for FSPort MediaVPs
Honestly, I would just delete FSPort and the FSPort-MediaVPs and get them from the installer, which will ensure a clean install. Once you are sure they are working.. THEN you can get this unofficial patch working.

Re: Unofficial patch for FSPort MediaVPs
Thanks for the assistance guys, I've got it up and running with no problems now.

Macife/mjn
I have read that thread already several times trying to rectify the mess id gotten into but it is also why I got into the mess in the first place as its not overly clear on what to do for the new 2014 media vps....I wonder if someone could update it to have correct process for the new vps and reinstate the all in one installer again as its crossed out on there, thats why I ended up trying to do it manually too.

admittedly, i'm feeling slightly retarded that its taken me this long to get my head round it  :P

Re: Unofficial patch for FSPort MediaVPs
You'll need to bug Goober5000 and Yarn to update FSPort to support the new MediaVPs, officially.

Re: Unofficial patch for FSPort MediaVPs
I made a zip file that contains both the new ship table file and the new HUD file. Since apparently message attachments get deleted automatically after certain amount of time, I decided to provide a more permanent download link this time.

Here you go. Just put these 2 tbm files inside the ZIP to the previously mentioned fsport-mediavps\data\tables.

Here is a fixed comparison, since the last link for old HUD got wiped out:

Old HUD
New HUD

The same disclaimer stands as before, do NOT use this hud file if your monitor has 1440 or more vertical pixels. Otherwise these non-scales HUD elements get too small.
