This is the All-in-One Installer for FreeSpace 2 Open. It contains the 22.0.0 build from 01st April 2022 with TrackIR, the wxLauncher 0.12.0 RC3 and the MediaVPs 4.6.4. With this Installer you can install and play FreeSpace2 Open without any further downloads.
The Archive has to be extracted into a temporary folder where you should run the FreeSpace2_Open.exe. After that, you can read the instructions that explain every possible installation option and then you can simply install the desired features.
If you have installed the wxLauncher, then you can execute it via the Desktop shortcut, Startmenu entry or the shortcut in your FreeSpace2 folder. If you have installed the preconfigured profile, you have to select the "MediaVPs 4.6.X" profile in the profile manager of wxLauncher. After that you only have to set up the "Basic Settings" to play FreeSpace 2 Open with MediaVPs 4.6.4 right away with the button of the same name.
If you do not use the profile, you have to set up all settings by yourself. Do not forget, that you have to select "MediaVPs 4.6.X" in the mod tab to activate them.

well i see after over a decade of being away this process is still completely user unfriendly and a pain in the butt
I do not think so. There are four installation methods now. Manually, FSOInstaller, this one here which only have to be extracted and to executed as the rest is setup properly or Knossos.
well a bit of logic usage and a bit of attention and your all up and ready.
guys and girls if any invest a lot of their LIFE time for everyone to enjoy and thats why they dont deserve this kind of attitude.
programmers that develop games make it easy as pushing a button but they charge you for it. this is free and friendly. this level of ease of use is not something you can take for granted.
