Hello guys, i have registered to the fs2net but everytime i try to go online it loses the connection, i tryed about 20 times and it allways loses the connection, so what should i do?

Are you using a recent 3.6.10 version. If not try that. You can find them here: http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/board,173.0.html

on my freespace launcher.exe it is the 184.108.40.206 version but on my freespace2.exe it is 1.0.0
12-25-2008, 08:40 PM
Well there is your problem you need to get fs2_open in order to play on FS2netDd. Retail can not access it. Link to the installer: http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,42854.0.html

i have the fs2_open, and this still doesnt works here are the names: fred2_open_r-20060323, fs2_open_d_20060425_Kara and fs2_open_r_20060425_Kara, it is not working

Those are really old. You need to get the latest 3.6.10 builds from the forum link I posted above.
01-16-2009, 06:01 PM
can you give me the link to the new version?
01-17-2009, 01:01 PM
thanks for all your help, and sorry for not answering early
01-17-2009, 02:09 PM
That board is where the nightly builds are posted.

can anyone help me to fix this problem, i really want to play freespace 2 online and i just love the game :)
01-24-2009, 09:41 PM
Run the debug build (It's the one with _d or _debug in the file name) and then post the fs2_Open.log you'll now find in your data folder.
01-24-2009, 10:31 PM
i didnt installed OpenAL for this version and i runned the debug, this still didnt worked
01-24-2009, 10:39 PM
in fact i never got this error:
Web cursor bitmap not found. This is most likely due to one of three reasons:
1)You're running freespace Open from somewhere other then your Freespace 2 folder;
2)You've somehow corrupted your Freespace 2 installation;
3)You've haven't installed Freespace 2 at all.
01-24-2009, 11:37 PM
Well the answer is right in front of your face then. It's one of those 3 things? Either
1. You are running FS2 from someplace like My Documents which is a no-no
2. FS2 is corrupted
3. You don't have FS2 installed. The installer does not install FS2 just FS2_Open. You need to buy a copy of FS2 and install that first.
01-24-2009, 11:37 PM
Well first you need OpenAL for certain. Unless you already had it installed the game would never work at all.
Secondly that error is caused if you have FS2_Open but don't actually own Freespace2. How did you get the game?
01-25-2009, 03:11 PM
nothing is working to fix the game
01-25-2009, 03:19 PM
if you want to know, i have the FS2 Open Launcher 5.3 in the c/games/Freespace2 and the FS2 Open Launcher 5.5 in D/New Folder directory, but i launched the 5.5 version, and it doesnt works.
01-25-2009, 03:20 PM
and a friend of my gived to me the game, he bought the game on ebay
01-25-2009, 05:03 PM
Okay. Now try running the debug build like I suggested earlier. If you're getting an error message you're definitely getting far enough to produce a log.
01-25-2009, 07:22 PM
i tryed to run the debug, no luck, it says the same error
Dont send report | Send report
If you want i can ask my friend if this game is a download version or the origional
01-25-2009, 07:24 PM
he got me this game, but i dont remember if it is the download version.
I am gonna ask him :)
Is there a file called "Root_fs2.vp" in your \freespace2\ folder?
Edit: No, wait.
i have the FS2 Open Launcher 5.3 in the c/games/Freespace2 and the FS2 Open Launcher 5.5 in D/New Folder directory, but i launched the 5.5 version, and it doesnt works.
You must have the Launcher (and the FSO builds) in your \freespace2\ directory.
01-27-2009, 05:20 PM
there is a root_fs2.vp file located on C:/Games/FreeSpace2 in my FS2 Open Launcher 5.3
So, in short:
- Move the 5.3 Launcher away from \freespace2\
- Move Launcher 5.5d to \freespace2\
- Use Launcher 5.5d.
01-31-2009, 03:35 PM
i did what you told me to do, i moved the FS2 Open Launcher 5.5c version to C:/Games/Freespace2 and i am getting an error:
1) You're running Freespace Open from somewhere other than your Freespace 2 folder;
2) You've somehow corrupted your Freespace 2 instalation;
3) You haven't installed Freespace 2 at all.
and i went to see the control panel to see if Freespace 2 is installed, but Freespace 2 is not installed.
I copyed the Freespace 2 to a winrar archive, could be that is interfering the game? :)
01-31-2009, 03:37 PM
but i dont think that would interfer the game by just copying the game to a winrar archive
Uh... could you just post a screenshot of your \freespace2\ folder?
02-03-2009, 06:23 PM
hey guys, i just put the FS2 Launcher5.5c on c:/games/FreeSpace2, and it works, i have connected to the Freespace 2 servers:)
Thanks guys, thanks for all your help
02-03-2009, 06:24 PM
but i have a little trouble, why nobody cant connect to the Freespace 1 servers?
02-03-2009, 06:25 PM
if anyone wants to join me to play Freespace 2, just say it :)
02-04-2009, 03:35 PM
hey guys, i have a question, why nobody plays freespace 1?
02-04-2009, 04:25 PM
The number of people playing online is already small and to play the port requires everyone to agree to play using the port beforehand (or to restart). You probably could get people to do so most likely though.
02-15-2009, 08:48 AM
ok so i did everything to set me up to play freespace 2 but when i try playing online i get an error when trying to validate my freespace and it times out when validating my pilot any ideas. P.S. i couldnt find the game sold anywhere so i had to borrow it for lack of safe terms :D
02-15-2009, 12:02 PM
just a little problem, i dont have a old pxo account.
02-15-2009, 03:12 PM
i dont have a freespace 1 old pxo account
02-15-2009, 07:24 PM
i just found another problem, i registered at the http://fs2netd.game-warden.com/
I have loged in and when i loged in i have flyed in the game, but my status dont say that
02-15-2009, 07:25 PM
they say i have never flown
02-15-2009, 07:26 PM
the say this:
Kills (Assists): 0 (0)
Last Flown: never
02-15-2009, 07:26 PM
i dont think this version is right
02-15-2009, 07:34 PM
the stranger is when i seached my pilot name, it doesnt appears there, it doesnt appears on the Current Point Rankings
02-15-2009, 07:35 PM
There are a couple of possibilities. First if you are using 3.6.9 stats most likely won't save. If you are using any mod including the MediaVPs stats won't save.
Right now stats will only save with 3.6.10 and retail data. When they save you will get a messages that stats were successfully stored. If you are using a recent 3.6.10 build you will get a message as to why they don't store. Although occasionally they just don't save for no apparent reason. An update of FS2netD is in the works and will hopefully take care of a lot of this.
02-15-2009, 07:37 PM
and another problem is that i want to play FreeSpace 1 in aln and i dont know how to configurate the game to play in lan
