Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
I've uploaded version 2.1.10 with the following changes:

  • Rewrite invocation of external programs to work smoothly on both Windows and Linux
  • Several changes, including using chmod, to fix innoextract operation on Linux
  • Work around innoextract bug for extracting into paths with spaces
  • Use 7zip for downloading all archives, including zip
  • Fix regression bug with extraction of .tar.gz files

 
Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
Since I did I full FSO install a few weeks ago, and looked at a few mod.ini files, a number of them field still say mediavps_3612 instead of MediaVPs_2014 in their secondarylist field. Among them: Derelict, FS Port MediaVPs, Awakenings, BtA Demo, Cardinal Spear, Deus Ex Machina 1.5 (just says mediavps), Destiny of Peace, Silent Threat Reborn, Just Another Day, and Just Another Day 2.2. I fixed all of them for myself, but wanted to bring this to your attention, on the assumption it hasn't been already.

That is because most of the mods listed have not been fully, if at all, tested with the MVPs 2014. In that regard, there typically aren't any problems with editing the mod.ini yourself. Just keep in mind that this is intentional at the moment.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
Indeed. FSPort for example has some outright problems with the 2014 Media VPs at the moment, doesn't it?

 
Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
Somehow it didn't occur to me that the 2014 MediaVPs might cause issues with older mods. Is there a list somewhere of which mods in the FSO Installer package can be used without MediaVPs, since the installer no longer distributes the 3.6.12 versions?

Er - the installer still lists the 3.6.12 mediavps, just under the 2014 ones (tested this just now to confirm).

Don't have time to check right now, but maybe Complete doesn't install them then?

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
Good point, I only checked the "custom install" option.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
I did a Complete install, or I thought I did. I just know I didn't get the 3.6.12 MediaVPs.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
"Complete" installs everything, including both the 2014 and 3.6.12 mediaVPs.  It's possible that there was a problem with the download mirror though.  Try running it again.

Doesn't the installer have dependencies too? The older mods' installer files should be updated to make that clearer.

What do you mean?  The installer only depends on Java 1.5 or later.

I think he was referring to the "DEPENDENCIES" tag; that the old mods should list the 3.6.12 MediaVPs as a dependency, and so shouldn't be possible to install without them.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
Aha.  Yes, that would be good to do.

 
Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
Hello Goober5000,
Thank you for the great installer! It made me come back to FS2 once more:) However I have a small problem:
I have aborted an ongoing installation (full install) and after resuming it the installer has some modules selected and greyed out.
What I did:
- reinstalled Freespace 2 (from GOG)
- deleted the installer log directory
- monitored the installer with process monitor to find out what it does and how it gets the info what modules are installed
- deleted everything in my Temp
- etc:)

I still have the same issue. In installer log (attached) it still says:

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
Did you delete the "fsoinstaller.properties" file (it should be right next to the .jar file)? That should do the trick.

This isn't a problem, it just means those modules were already installed.  If you aborted an installation when some modules were installed and some were not, the installed ones will be selected and grayed out.  The modules that have not yet been installed will not be selected.

As ngld says, deleting the fsoinstaller.properties file will remove this installation information, but that should usually not be necessary.

In order to understand your thought process, what did you expect would happen?  Why did you think this was a problem?

(And just to cover all the bases and make sure there isn't an unexpected bug, do you see the installed mods in your FS2 folder?  The 3.7.2 RC4 EXE, the 2014 mediaVPs, and so forth?)

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
He said he "reinstalled Freespace 2 (from GOG)" so I'd guess that no mods are left in the FS2 folder. Since the installer can't check if the information in the fsoinstaller.properties is correct, he would have to delete it.
If he didn't reinstall FS2, the installer should work just like Goober said.

 
Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
I have downloaded only one JAR file - the installer. My expectations:
- I run the installer and select only MVPs to install and launcher (since at first I only want to have improved graphics and no additional content)
- I finish Freespace 2 and then add mods:)

Yes, I have reinstalled the game = deleted the entire folder. More! - I have then installed the game in different folder and moved the installer JAR file to different one. I run the installer from newly formated USB stick and STILL I have info that some modules are installed (I can not deselect them) How installer knows it??? The old folder is gone and LOG file is gone,the system TEMP directory is clear but STILL installer says "I found some MVPs and other mods"
There must be a file or registry entry where information from my previous unfinished install is stored.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
The file you're talking about is called "fsoinstaller.properties". It should be in C:\Users\<your windows username>. Once you have deleted it, your problem should be solved.
