Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
The files in the uppercased folder are patch files for the similarly-named files in the lowercased folder. That's why that folder seems to work; it's complete, just not up-to-date. You should move the patch VPs into the same folder and delete the extra. Most mod.ini files should be looking for the lowercase, so you should be fine there.

Everything on paper looks good. I gave up with the "You must allow the FS2 launcher to detect your video card", even after I did and it didn't detect anything. In fact, the entire launcher does not detect anything on my computer, sound, video, CPU type, RAM....

 
Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
You have problem with installer or launcher?
If launcher, then it's wrong topic but...
try at least once "run as administrator" on launcher.

That sounds like the retail FS2 launcher, not the FSO launcher...

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
You probably already know that but Linux recognises UPPER and lower case in filenames. Some configuration files probably don't keep consistent naming rule amongst it's files so eg MediaVPS 3.6.12 content is split into two dirs:
MediaVPS_3612
mediavps_3612

Pim (or another person running Linux), please delete your MVP 3.6.12 folders and try redownloading them with this build.  I've implemented case-insensitive folder checking so all of the files should be downloaded into just one folder.

I tried the new build but it didn't completely work. Here's the logs from running the build, as well as a test run straight afterwards with the standard installer to confirm that it wasn't the mirrors causing the issue.

Until I figured it out, that was a very strange bug.  But it had a silly, easily fixable cause.  Try this new build.  Thanks for testing. :)

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
The FSO 3.7.2 RC5 release uses DMG files for OS X but the installer tries to download a tgz file.
Goober, you should probably correct the link (in the text files) and make sure that your installer can extract DMG files. Since you're using 7zip it should be fine, though.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
The installer attempts to download a .tgz because it can't extract DMGs currently.  The release script was supposed to upload one of each, did the .tgz link fail to download?

Yeah, http://scp.indiegames.us/builds/OSX/fs2_open_3.7.2_RC5.tar.gz (and all the other mirror links) return a 404 Not Found.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
Ok, I apparently put .tar.gz in the FSO Installer file, but uploaded .tgz files.  The Installer mod file should be fixed now, might have to clear the installer cache or something for it to pick up the change though, not sure.  I'll make sure that doesn't happen again, but I think that part of the file is hand-jammed, not generated, so it should stay fixed.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
I have a question about something under "custom" downloads.


When I bring up the installer one of the things under "custom" downloads it says I can select is OGG cutscenes.  However, I already have the FS2 cutscenes in my Games/FS2 folder (MVE format from discs). 

Is there an advantage to changing them to OGG or should I just leave it as is?

Less disk space usage (if you also delete the .mve cutscenes) and negligible quality loss.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
It depends on which entry you're talking about.  The OGG Cutscenes entry under the FSPort tree are converted from the MVE cutscenes.  The cutscenes under the MediaVPs tree, though, are re-rendered from scratch by MjnMixael.  Those are not the same as the MVEs.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
In the custom installer, the one I'm talking about is as far to the left as an entry can be in the box (i.e., it is not 'under' anything, I believe).

Under 'more info' it basically says FS2 cutscenes changed from Interplay's MVE to "Xiph's" format.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
Hi Guys

Thank you so much for putting all this together.

I have been going around in circles for two days now and I'm ready to admit defeat and ask for some help.  :banghead:

I've downloaded the basic FS open port and the STR and destiny of peace campaigns (am running windows 8) but I cannot seem to get my GOG version of FS2 to recognize any of the material except for 2 new 'untitled' missions in the mission simulator.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

cheers
