Need help with fresh install of FSO
Hey all!

I just made the switch to a new computer and am trying to get a fresh install of FSO. I did copy my current FS2 directory over from my previous computer, but it's an absolute mess with hundreds of files, folders, mods, builds, etc.

Basically I am not sure where my original Fs2 core files (from a GOG version) are. They're in that folder, but I don't want to just install FSO into that folder. I want to clear the whole thing out and start fresh with just the core retail files needed to run the game and FSO.

To compound the mess I can't just redownload Freespace 2 as I got it from a GOG account that has long been lost to time, years ago.

Can someone maybe tell me what the core files are so I can find them in my current directory, copy them over to a new folder, and install FSO over that?

Thanks!

I guess so but I'm not entirely sure what you mean. I've done fresh installs in the past.

I'll upload my FS2 Installer too my Google Drive and pass the link on to you. Is that okay?

Now that I think of it (sorry I forgot this thread!) I think I'd rather try my chances with a fresh install. Thanks anyway, if I do end up needing your installer I will let you know.
