Hello humans: My buddy just gave me a cd titled Freespace 2 Colossus. Does anyknow anything about this CD?? Never heard of it before. Thanks

some quick research seems to suggest it's a special edition that's been available only in.... poland.
Sounds a bit out there, but it would probably explain why most of the articles I've seen on it aren't in english.
OH.MY.GOD.... IF I COULD POSSIBLY GET SOME TRACKS OFF YOU, I PROMISE NOT TO HUMP YOUR LEG!!!!

IIRC it's basically an expanded demo version, it usually shipped with joysticks and the like.

Colossus isn't just available in Poland. I have a copy. Got it when I bought my Logitech Force 3D joystick (Which ironically enough I bought so that I could play FreeSpace) :)
Colossus is the first 10 missions only but it's good enough to play retail multiplayer or to install FS2_Open and some mods on (although I'd advise getting the HotU version instead).

didnt you download the freespacezone version oldwarrior?

Yes I did. A friend gave me this ver. this morning. I had never heard of it and doing a quick search (from work) I could not find anything on it. I now have a stable/working copy including being able to view the new graphics. In my research and thanks to you guys on this forum I discovered this morning that the files I downloaded are not the latest available. So tonight I will d/w and install the latest ver. of FS2 Open. I think I have everything working correctly based upon the following:
A-no errors noted when I run the game within the launcher
B-I am playing the game in the original campaign and the asteroids look awesome!
I am looking for ways to verify my installs to get the most for the files submitted by the community. If you have or know of any tests I can perform please let me know. Thanks.
