Hello all,

Trying to install the FSO, all mods installed but when I launch <launcher.exe> and try to open one of the files and run it, it gives me this message:

Also complains first about some Pixel issue and 32-bit.
Has anyone experienced this and solved it?
Running Win10 32-bit on a Dell Vostro 1014 with Intel 4 chipset.
Thanks!

Could you be more specific?

Also, could you possibly provide a debug log?

NoBodyAtAll:
I haven't played it on W10 so I haven't got a clue, maybe the WX launcher can help you.

You would be better to post troubles on their forum

Oh dear god, someone tell this man to get a life
I have a life... I had a great career as a Computer Applications Engineer and now I am enjoying retirement. I loved my job creating data acquisition and control test systems and building stuff. I also enjoy building stuff at home during the cold winter months and playing sims. Been married to a great wife for 40 years and enjoy my two grandkids when we get to be with them.

That is an old picture. I now have left and right hand custom built controllers. I have plans to create a custom Atari CX-40 Bluetooth joystick to use with the emulators on my Asus Zenpad 3S 10 tablet.

Use the Knossos installer/launcher, the old one is outdated:

You just need to have the GOG installer for Freespace 2 on you hard disk so the installer can extract the files, the rest is just waiting for the FSopen files to download.
