Hi guys, I'm super thankful for all the work on this!
I loved Freespace and FS2 so much as a kid, and I'm so excited to play them again.
I was commenting on a thread on Ars Technica and one of you industrious elves mentioned FSOpen, and I went straight out and bought a HOTAS setup just to play your mod.
It finally arrived yesterday, so I bought FS2 from GOG and downloaded its setup file, then grabbed this installer and ran it, installing everything.
Everything seemed to go smoothly, and when everything was finished I navigated to the install folder.. and there was no fs_open.exe or any other launcher .exe.
The only .exe options were the two regular Freespace 2 .exes and FRED.
So I deleted everything and ran the installer again, this time only installing the basic options.
Again, no additional launcher .exe was installed. This time I even searched my whole PC for the file names in case I was just being stupid and not seeing them, but no joy.
So I deleted everything again, and this time I installed FS2 through GOG, **THEN** ran your installer, installing everything again.
Again everything seemed to go smoothly, but once again there are only the two usual FS2 .exe's and FRED... no launcher .exe.
Am I doing something wrong? Should I download a separate launcher?
Should I try running your installer again as an administrator? Just thought of that...
Thanks SO MUCH for all your work on this, these two games were such a formative experience for me as a child and I cannot WAIT to play it on a huge screen with a great sound set-up and a proper HOTAS.. such as my child self couldn't even have imagined :-)
