Blue Planet Startup Error
Hi,

I came across an error in trying to run Blue Planet Complete by downloading the newly released version of Freespace 2 Open v3.7.4 RC3 only yesterday.

Upon download, I tried to run the mod with v3.7.4 RC3 but I hit an error in displaying the main menu page.

Then I tried to run it on v3.7.2 which I have been using it for the last 6 months and it too was broken. Last week I tried it was working.

I went back to check the FSOInstaller to look for any faults and upon re-running of the installation, the downloads on all visuals and most of the audios have failed.

Any idea on how to solve this fault? Or should I download the .vp files individually?

Any help is much appreciated.
I'm a great collector of mods, 73 and counting! Ask me for the list.

Thanks! This log shows you trying to load Shadow Genesis. Are you sure you have the right mod selected? It also shows you using a 3.7.2 build, not 3.7.4.

 
Re: Blue Planet Startup Error
It's on Shadow Genesis? That's odd.

Alright, I'll check on my side then I'll resend the fs2_open.log file soon.

Thanks for the help!

Re: Blue Planet Startup Error
Hi, sorry for the wait.

I managed to run on debug mode for FS2 Open v3.7.4.Debug and the fs2_open.log file is attached.

It's not the whole list as the number of errors are aplenty.

However, I still cannot download the visuals and most of the audio from the FSOInstaller.

Any idea on how to do it? Or should I redownload them individually?

Thank you.

Re: Blue Planet Startup Error
Does the installer say anything about why it failed?

And yes, manually downloading those VPs is absolutely necessary (assuming we can't get the installer to work), without them, BP will not work at all.

EDIT:

Code: [Select]
  OpenGL Vendor    : Intel
  OpenGL Renderer  : Intel(R) HD Graphics 4400
  OpenGL Version   : 4.3.0 - Build 10.18.15.4256

This might be a problem. If this is the only GPU in the system, you should definitely disable things like Shadows and delete the bpc-advanced vp files, as the game will likely be unplayable with them. If you do have a dedicated GPU somewhere in there, you should use the driver's control panel to tell it to switch to that GPU when FSO is running.

Re: Blue Planet Startup Error
If you're not sure what GPU you have, download GPU-Z (link in my signature).  It should list both (if you have more than one) of your graphics cards via a [url-https://supportdesk.xsplit.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2230864-how-to-use-gpu-z]drop-down menu[/url] on the bottom.

Re: Blue Planet Startup Error
To add, make sure your graphics card drivers are up to date, for both your Intel and your other GPU (if you have one).  This may help some as well.

Negative, the installer says that the download for those files have failed. Even with the latest version of FSOInstaller. :banghead:

I'll try to manually download the rest of the files through the forum that contains it. Let's hope that is one way to avert this problem. :yes:

I'm currently using a NVIDIA GEFORCE 740M graphics card and last check that Blue Planet Complete was working properly with that card.

I also used the enhanced graphics .vp file to make the ships look sleekly and have not encountered any problem with it up till I downloaded the newer version of FSO through the installer.

On a funnier note, there was an update for Blue Planet Complete which resulted in updating the bpc-visuals1 & 3 files but not the rest. So I wonder could that be the cause... :confused:

Re: Blue Planet Startup Error
The engine should be executing on your GeForce, but, open nVidia Control Panel and set a rule for FSO to use the high performance GeForce.  I believe there's an option to add an entire folder; I'd just use that and set the FreeSpace directory to high performance (avoids having to do this in the future; however, there was a problem with nVidia CP forgetting about that stuff when upgrading, so YMMV).

Just FYI, I have not changed any of the graphics properties nor did I update the graphics card since I downloaded the reworked Blue Planet, (should be when they changed from a Raynor to an Erebus) sometime late last year. Literally, I have been using this mod on v3.7.2 for months without problem, up till last week.

Re: Blue Planet Startup Error
Here are 2 screenshots in the attachment from the FSOInstaller that indicated the download failed.
