Hey Neph, I've got a problem here. I successfully installed SFEHH (yay!) but whenever I play I'm getting these really weird graphical bugs. Namely, engine effects and weapon trails both have really weird psychedelic effects (plus a black "smoke" for the engines, and grids of seizure inducing rectangles for weapons). When I open SFEH, it says "Fatal Error: Failed EnumAdapterModes in UpdateAntialiasList". And when I go into the "video" tab in the launcher, the "Resolution" drop-down menu is COMPLETELY BLANK. There is nothing there.

Any help would be VERY much appreciated.

EDIT: Whenever I launch the game, it says "Failed to set video mode" but lets me play anyway. Also, the game crashes whenever I fire my Charged Lasers.

Is this a standalone game? Is everything it needs to function packaged into the download? I would like to avoid purchasing Freespace 2 on Steam if possible. Thanks in advance for any responses.

It's a standalone game, you don't need to buy Freespace 2 to play it.

Thanks Neph. I'm sorry this project had to be shelved (at least for now). If you need a voice actor that an 18 year old guy can fill, I'm here. And I'll do it for free.

Mods can't redistribute files from the base game, that would be illegal.

So as long as this remains a mod of Freespace 2 and the dev doesn't create a standalone game out of it, yes you have to own Freespace 2. Though I would personally suggest buying it on GOG, not steam. Unlike Steam they actually update games to work on newer systems and according to the game's store page it works on Windows 7, 8, and 10.

This game is Standalone. Volition released the source code nearly a decade ago and it has since been re-purposed into Freespace Open. There are quite a few standalone mods for it. Beyond the Red Line and The Babylon Project comes to mind.

Oh thank god this is still alive! I only found screen shots of this recently and I was terrified that this was going to be one of those cool things you find out about way too late and it's gone.

But any way this is one of the raddest things I've seen in a while. If you have a paetreon I'm definitely supporting it the moment I get a job this summer.

But I do have one question, I noticed that the character models here look totally different than the ones in some of the earlier trailers. Is that to differentiate it more or were the originals always just planned to be place holders?

Oh. one other thing, I'm not really familiar with Freespace 2, but when I launch this mod there's no resolution settings in-gameor in the launcher before hand and it plays at the lowest possible setting, so I'm playing in this tiny box and it's kind of difficult. Is this just part of the current build or am I missing something.

I saw a thing called Freespace open, Do I need that to play?

I wasn't satisfied with a lot of the character models and ended up updating them, that's why they are different in more recent versions of the game.

The Resolution should be able to be changed in the Launcher. It should be the second option under the video tab.

How much content will this game have? More content than Star Fox Zero, I hope!

I believe the most recent demo already has more levels than SF Zero. If I'm able to finish this game it'll have quite a bit of content.
