Blue Planet Complete, installation problems
Hi Guys,

back in 2010, I played trough Blue Planet Age of Aquarius: Directors Cut and absolutely loved it. From the music to the beautiful high-quality models of the ships. I decided this week to pick up a copy of Freespace 2 from Steam and give it a whirl again.

However, I'm concerned I've done something wrong - I've installed Blue Planet Complete from the downloadable installer, but when I load the game up, the models look noticeably different from the Directors Cut. The models aren't as lit up, shiny, and look slightly lower quality.
I know this isn't a problem with the game or the models as they were built, but with my installation! I've also been having trouble with the launcher not saving my graphics settings - the game also loads in a much lower resolution than my native monitor.

Any help you guys can give me would be greatly appreciated!

Try running the launcher as an administrator and/or enabling the (IIRC) "Use alternate registry path" option. If neither of those fix the issue, please post your fs2_open.log file.  Instructions on how to do this can be found in this post.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.
