To install 'The Antagonist' you need to do the following: 1. Ensure you have FSO installed with a recent nightly (7877 or later) and up to date launcher! 2. Ensure you have mediavps_3612 3. Create a new folder in your freespace2 root directory titled 'The Antagonist' and unpack the .7z file into that folder. 4. Run the mod by opening the launcher and selecting 'The Antagonist' folder under the mod tab. 5. Play the mod with a new pilot. Do not use the same pilot you used to play retail! Important: This mod WILL NOT run on 3.6.12! You should try to play this mod on a recent nightly (Oldest compatible build is: <edit> 7877)

Shouldn't you include a fancy nightly build if its needed?

That sort of logic makes pretty good sense to me, and I almost did just that, but I was told that releasing a freespace open mod with a nightly build is not standard practice since the builds change and nightlies go out of date quickly. In the end it worked out since there was a bug in the code exploited by this mod that scp caught and fixed in a more recent nightly.

Now's a good time to download a build though, since a more stable 'release candidate' build has been made available. You can get it here.
