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.

Despre acest joc

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.

Before my review. The game didn't run at first and gave the message: ""Freespace2/Fred2 cannot be run from a drive root directory!". After looking around and saw some crazy solutions finally came to this very simple steps (no need for you to edit anything just click 3 times):

A) Go to the directory that the game was installed in
B) Go to the 'data' folder
C) DOUBLE click on the file 'FS2.reg'
D) Click 'Yes' When asked if you want 'Registry Editor' to make a system change
E) Click 'Yes' When Registry Editor asks if you are sure you want that change
F) Click 'OK' when Reg Edit says it's done
G) Run the game and enjoy

OK with that out of the way, one more point: you need a mouse (or preferred: a stick game controller). I was using the mouse tab from the laptop and then tried to navigate with the keystrokes and it is just too hard that way. You need to aim.

This is a 10+ year old game and I think the last great space simulation. Great game. You play a pilot and get promoted along the way until you are controlling your aircraft and giving instructions to wingman. Here are some highlights:

+ A campaign well thought out. After a few missions you get involved in it. Feels like an epic campaign.
+ Even through you are controlling your aircraft and giving missions to a few wingmen, you feel you are part of large battles. Lots of aircraft flying around.
+ Great tutorials, which are made nicely as training missions needed to be completed to get promotions. Also tutorials are made throughout the campaign. So you start with a few tutorials and latter on you do some more advanced ones.
+ The game is easy to get into. Part of it is the tutorials and the level design very well done.
+ Aircraft have multiple kinds of weapons, shields, you can call another aircraft to resupply you.
+ High production values

Minus points:
- Graphics feel a bit outdated.
- Need mouse or better stick controller.
- There will never be a Fresspace 3 :(

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.

9.5/10

What can I say, they should charge double this. After you download fs open and all the nice mods - change the name of the new launcher to fs2 in your steam folder, all is fixed. Takes some time to understand, but not long and 100% worth it. Considering you can play the first freespace on the FS2 engine - have it in widescreen and updated textures. One of my top five favorite games on steam even if it takes a bit to get it to working condition.

UPDATE: I am changing this to a tentative positive because I got it working. I followed these steps from someone's comments in another review:

"Goto C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Freespace 2\data
Click on FS2.REG. It'll ask if you want to add it to the registry. Click yes. Play Freespace 2"

I actually don't know if the game itself warrents a positive review, but it is working. I will update again once I have put in enough hours. Thanks.

It is an initial positive review because the fix did not require any third party software like so many users reccomend.

END UPDATE

I want to play this game. I want to like it. It seems like my type of game, but it won't play! I am getting the same error:"Freespace2/Fred2 cannot be run from a root drive directory"

I have tried to get it to work by going to forums, but no such luck. I have tried Vista and 8.1.

Selling a game with this much feedback that it doesn't even work seems borderline criminal. They need to fix it or Steam needs to refund, block the developer, and possibly take action.

Odd...it says I need to play the game for 5 minutes before I can post a review, but it won't let me play. So I am trying to leave it on the error. If it works you will see this review.

It's an amazing game you just have to get the Freespace Open source-code extender if you want it to work on Steam, but it's an easy download and found on hard-light.net, so if you like Space-sims this game is worth the buy.

Probably the best space sim I've ever played. Great action, cool ships and space battles and an interesting story. Highly modable so you can update to current graphics and more. Definitely an addictive game I'd recommend to all.

It does not take a rocket scientist to get it running. Either download the FSO installer or try running it under a compatability mode in Windows 7/8/8.1 (like Win98 compatability). Like most in its genre, a bit of a learning curve. Great classic game.

Great game. Its a really fun space dogfighter with a good story to it.

Also, dont let people tell you it will not run on windows 7 (Professional atleast)
I just used the simple piece of advice on the store page to fix the registery, and now it runs great. The only kink is some of the resolution pixelation in the cinimatics, wich really is not that bad.

For an old beater of the early space sim era, this thing aged well.

Alot of people complain about launching issues. Yet if you listen to the store page then all is well. Just a few mouse clicks and all is good.

Anyways onto the game if you were like me and played the first Freespace and were left wondering where is number two. Well here it is. The game is very much like the first one and is also designed as a linear gameplay model. Must complete one section to move on. The controls unfortunately must be learned through training tutorials. Which if you feel confident you can skip and make it on your own. This unlike the first one has cutscenes which add a lot more to the story. All in all a decent buy and if you can handle the old graphics well worth the money for the amount you may do with it. Lan capable is one of those things

Pound for pound, the best space combat sim TO DATE! And it was released in 1999. That will probably change tho once Star Citizen is released. Get it and get a flight stick to play.

Freespace 2 is THE space combat sim that all others are compared to.

Even if you aren't normally into sims, it is well designed, easy to pick up and play and has an engaging story.

The training missions and intuitive interface will get you going very quickly after starting.

The mission debriefings are refreshing too; they congratulate you and explain how your actions helped the effort (and sometimes give you medals for valor), so you leave missions feeling accomplished and satisfied.

There's an astonishing sense of scale in this game; you literally feel like a bug compared to some of the capital ships you go up against.

If you emjoyed the X-Wing / TIE Fighter / Colony Wars series, or might be interested in flying a starfighter, check this game out.

Sill as playable and engaging as when it was released... in 1999!!

The story is till great and the missions are well thought out. There are no updated graphics, sounds or settings unless you install the Freespace Open Source (FSO) Project, which is REALLY easy to do. You can't launch the FSO fom within Steam, though. Which is the only downside.

Highly recommended for every space sim fan.

Best game of its time and of its genre. There are better places to buy it from than steam since the game runs like shit out of the steam library and won't run Freespace Open from there either.

Excellent game that has withstood the test of time. Was definitely better than the first one, which was a stellar game in of itself.

This game is fully moddable and even features an Open-Source Code Project that maintains and updates the engine. Newer OpenGL features with hundreds of mods to choose from lead to endless fun found in a game with already high replay value.

This game is absolutly awesome and a true representation of what opening a game up to community content can achieve. However, after you buy this copy from Steam I would (as others have said) get hold of Free Space 2 Open at Hard-Light to really see what this game is capable of. Plus, if you are a Star Wars fan then head over to MOD DB and grab the original trilogy MOD as you can then fly X-Wings and Tie Fighters in the fantasically rendered Battle for Endor! There is an installer for Free Space 2 Open but I would recomend building the game yourself with the parts recomended.

There is a bit of work here to set the game up and you must have the retail version from steam first but it is well worth the effort as this is the best Space Combat Sim I have ever played.

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.
