Addressing install issues

Some users report an error when trying to launch the game.

We are working on a fix, but you may be able to resolve the issue right now by following these steps:


1. Open the folder where Freespace 2 is installed (usually "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Freespace 2\data")

2. Open the "Registry" folder. If there is no Registry folder open the "Data" folder

3. Double-click the file "FS2.reg"

4. Click the "Yes" button to make a system change

5. Click the "Yes" button to confirm

6. Click the "OK" button when Reg Edit says it's done

7. Launch Freespace 2 from your Steam library

Depending on your system settings, you may need to temporarily lower your UAC (User Access Control) settings or disable your anti-virus to make the change. Then re-enable UAC and/or your anti-virus software. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Über dieses Spiel

The year is 2367, thirty two years after the Great War. Or at least that is what YOU thought was the Great War. The endless line of Shivan capital ships, bombers and fighters with super advanced technology was nearly overwhelming.

As the Terran and Vasudan races finish rebuilding their decimated societies, a disturbance lurks in the not-so-far reaches of the Gamma Draconis system.

Your nemeses have arrived... and they are wondering what happened to their scouting party.

This game is one of the games that I grew up playing. After several years of hoping this game would appear on Steam (My physical copy is getting old), it finally made it and I got it and the first game in a heartbeat. The game is the best space-flight combat simulator that I have ever played. Rich with its own lore and story, Freespace 2 has much to offer. Two different storylines (The main campaign and the Hammer of Light) are available right off the bat to get you started. The main campaign gives you an in-depth tutorial on how to play (I play with the keyboard because I think it is easier) and it has joystick combatability.

Another nice thing about this game is the amount of support it has from its fanbase. Freespace Open is a mod that updates the graphics to a more modern equivalent and it opens you up to different mods that include Battlestar Galactica, Wing Commander, and there's even a Star Wars mod.

In conclusion, I must recommend this game to everyone who sees it. There were some problems with the launch of this game on Steam, but if you are using Freespace Open and follow one of the guides, you will no problem getting this game correctly instaled.

Nice game BUT the age is really starting to show off. This game was released more then 10 years ago and if you are looking for a nice game with many details this is not it. But if you are one of these "90s" kids that played this game when you were young i can recommend you to do it, bring back the memories. Making this game start is also a pain. So in conclusion, no don't buy this if you are after something good, buy this for the "old game" feel.

Freespace 2

[English abstract below german section]

Sehr, sehr schönes Weltraumspiel, vielleicht eines der besten, das trotz seines hohen Alters irgendwie up-to-date ist, besonders mit den von der Community gepflegten Mods, die allein schon dringend für den Programmstart notwendig sein können, denn auf neueren Systemen lässt sich 'Freespace 2' meist nicht ohne weiteres bei Steam starten. Um ein Review schreiben zu dürfen, muss man allerdings mindestens 5 Minuten gespielt haben. So verbrachte ich einfach einige Zeit bei der Fehlermeldung im Fenster. Gespielt habe ich dann losgelöst von Steam. Um also gut spielen zu können, unbedingt beim 'Freespace 2 Source Code Project (FS2-SCP)' vorbeischauen: http://scp.indiegames.us

Eine weitere Anlaufstelle ist 'Freespace 2 Open' und deren Launcher, zu finden unter: http://www.fsoinstaller.com

Außerdem gibt es Installations-Hilfen bei: http://www.hard-light.net

Die Mods verschaffen zudem eine höhere Auflösung, bessere Texturen und weitere Spielinhalte. Damit spielt es sich dann grandios.

Es stellt sich mir die Frage, warum 'Good old Games' http://www.gog.com es hinbekommen hat einen ordentlich funktionierenden Launcher zur Verfügung zu stellen, Steam aber nicht!? Möge der geneigte Leser nun selbst entscheiden, wo er dieses meisterliche Glanzstück an Weltraumabenteuer erwirbt, ich kaufte zweimal...
'Freespace 2' und dessen Vorgänger passen in das Genre des Weltraumkshooters und ähneln den Spielen aus der Reihe 'Wing Commander', Freelancer oder Starlancer sowie entsprechenden Derivaten. Es gibt also Weltraumschlachten mit ordentlich viel Dogfight und die Steuerung geht gut von der Hand. Jedenfalls versüßt mir 'Freespace 2' die Zeit, bis irgendwann endlich mal Chris Roberts 'Star Citizen' von 'Roberts Space Industries' (https://robertsspaceindustries.com ) und Cloud Imperium (https://www.cloudimperiumgames.com ) erscheint.


[English abstract section]

Very nice Space-Shooter, probably one of the best, but Steam causes problems to start on newer systems, while the version from http://www.gog.com doesn't. 'Freespace 2' is similar to games like Wing Commander, Free- or Starlancer. The community offers well done Mods, that actually start the game, increase resolution, give better textures and more playable content. So take a look at "Freespace 2 Source Code Project (FS2-SCP)" http://scp.indiegames.us

Also known is the Launcher from 'Freespace 2 Open': http://www.fsoinstaller.com

More installation help from http://www.hard-light.net


Well, it's sweeten up my time, waiting for the release of Chris Roberts forthcoming 'Star Citizen' from 'Roberts Space Industries' (https://robertsspaceindustries.com ) and Cloud Imperium (https://www.cloudimperiumgames.com ).

2.http://www.fsoinstaller.com/
''Download the FreeSpace Open Installer'' herunterladen
zu Installation denn neu angelegten Freespace 2 ordner angeben
-wenn man im Installer alle Mods installiert kann es ein weile dauern also nicht wundern

3.denn Neuen Freespace 2 Ordner öffnen
nun kann mann unter ''Launcher (kleine Pfote)'' Optionen Starten
-Browser ausfählen - die Start *.exe auswählen
z.B.: freespace 2\fs2_open_3_7_0.exe
ich weiss halt nicht wofür die anderen *.exe da sind aber bei mir geht es mit der

4. nun könnt ihr alle einstellungen vornehemen Grafik,Joystick...
-unter Mods könnt ihr mit ''Select Mod'' verschieden Installiert mods auswählen
hab ich mir aber noch nicht angeschaut

5. Spiel mit Run oder ausgewählten *.exe Starten
-am Besten mit denn Desktop verknüpfen


Viel Spass und Dank an allen die mir geholfen haben

Dieses spiel gehörte früher zu meinen liebsten. Zuerst wolte ich es mir nicht holen, da einige schrieben das es nicht funktioniert. Aber siehe da, nach dem man im setup die Grafikhardware hat suchen lassen. funktioniert es einwandfrei. Werde mal schauen ob man auch die mods installieren kann mit dem neuen Launcher von Hard-Light.

Basically the last and best space sim. Since the steam edition will most likely throw errors at your face for trying to play an almost decade and a half old game on a modern system, Head over to hard-light.net to get Freespace open with the mediavp's and start enjoying this game in all its glory.

It will:
1. Allow you to actually play the game
2. Play it on any resolution
3. Massively improve the visuals.

The people at hard-light.net are also always available for techsupport and will help you with any technical problems you may run into.

Freespace 2 was the definitive in-cockpit ship-to-ship space combat simulator of the transitionary period between the 90's and 2000's. If you have any interest in this genre, and you haven't played this game yet, you're missing out on the masterstroke that paved the way for games like Freelancer and EVE Online.

If you're having technical issues be sure to check out the Freespace Open project, which attempts to fix some of the bugs and update the graphics and lighting to a level contemporary players may be more comfortable with. For me personally, as-downloaded, my installation of Freespace 2 refused to run properly, but after installing FSO, it executes effortlessly.

In the space of a few minutes, you'll find yourself weaving between capital ships, trying to dodge flak, focus-fire on enemy capital weaponry to disarm them, and dog-fighting with customizable ships and loadouts. All the while, a grand narrative is unfolding with plenty of little twists and flavor to keep your interest.

Best of luck, pilots.

First off, this game is brilliant. It's been brilliant since is came out 15 years ago, but the steam version is riddled with problems and you have to jump through a ton of hoops just to get it going. Considering the only reason I bought this off steam and not another platform was that I had thought steam would have streamlined the installation and configuration process, but alas, they have not. Amazing game, but steam shouldn't have something available for purchase that isn't install and go.

Having owned the original retail version of this game for several years, playing countless hours, I can thouroughly recommend it. It is the game that defined the genre and set the standard for all games of it's type for the future.
You play the role of a Terran (human) fighter pilot fighting against a seperatist Terran faction when the doom bringing alien race, defeated in the first game (which was equally good) known as the Shivans appear and threaten the Terrans and Vasudans (old enemy turned allies).
The gameplay is dynamic and the missions diverse in objective, from dogfighting avast array of fighters, to bombing capital ships or going undercover on special missions. The graphics are more than decent for a game of it's era and the physics are superb.
I would recomend using a mouse/keyboard for gameplay rather than a joystick or gamepad, because space goes in all directions and relying on a joystick can get confusing sometimes.

Doesn't work out of the box (shame on you, Steam, for allowing this to happen) but is easy enough to fix with the excellent Freespace Open Installer (http://www.fsoinstaller.com/). Do yourself a few favors:

1) Buy the game.
2) Install FSO.
3) Dust off your old joystick.
4) Enjoy playing this superb space combat simulator.

Freespace 2 is, fifteen years later, still the finest first person combat-focused sim around. It's combination of exceptional storytelling, insanely satisfying combat and the best control scheme and H.U.D. around still make it the pinnacle of the genre. Whether you're escorting a convoy, flying undercover or destroying a Shivan cruiser, you're in for an amazing thrill-ride. You can see my own play through of the game right here to get an idea of what's in store.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6K1_LepsaN-XOh-0ZHC27hY2YXInKmn5

This isn't simply a game you're purchasing, however, it's also a platform for more content. Thanks to the Source Code Project, you'll not only have access to updated graphics, but new missions, campaigns, and mods that extend the Freespace universe and help create new universes as well. This engine also powers the total conversions for the Wing Commander-based Saga and Battlestar Galactica-based Diaspora games as well.

So with Freespace 2, you're not just buying one game, you're purchasing a portal into years of fan-based work and content that goes well beyond the amazing base game. And heck, even if you never used the SCP, you'd still have one of the finest space games around. Do yourself a favor and buy this, whether you fly with a joystick or a mouse, you won't be disappointed.

http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=85435.0

Follow the instructions! if you do so you will be able to play and it will only take 3-5 minutes to set up make sure you put all the files in your Freespace2 folder that can be found in steamapps , common
ex. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Freespace 2
if you don't want to wait for the steam fix that might never come.
Makes sure to follow the instructions if have any issues add me to steam i would be happy to help.

Easy fix for those getting the root directory error when trying to run it:

1) Download and run this: http://www.fsoinstaller.com/files/installer/FreeSpaceOpenInstaller.jar

2) Choose the game directory (e.g. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Freespace 2")

3) Mods are optional, although I would recommend "FreeSpace Open 3.7.2 RC3 Windows Standard".

4) After installation, launch the game.
