"I don't have a clue about anything and somehow I've woken up 20 years in the future and immediately want to play FS2, all in one mega-post".


Hi guys :) I don't speak english very well :( Also I write like this :) and put :) smiley faces :) at the end of every sentence because, I don't speak english very well and otherwise nobody can tell I am trying to be nice... :) PLS HELP!!!!!!!1111111one

But I remember this game... or maybe it was something else but... my {brother, father, dead twice-50th-removed uncle} played this. Well actually he didn't it was the demo, which somehow was on a compilation CD of compilation CDs.

You see, in my country, we could not ever get this game again. There was exactly one copy made and shipped out to my country (for some reason I get paid to say "my country" without saying what it is) and shipped out to me.... ANNNNNND MY BROTHER SCRATCHED THE DISC LOL

Also, for some reason, I have the Box, artwork, manual, literally everything else but {no CD / the CD is super-scratched}

{As I just woke up from a 20 year sleep and don't realize that Volition doesn't exist anymore}

***aNd dO nOt tElL mE to "iNsTalL fS0", as I will just block u***

FSO... that definitely sounds like a virus (pronounced "why-rus"). As I have been asleep for 20+ years, I also don't know what open source is... so its a virus!!!!!!!111111one

Ok guys I just booted up the game and everything looks like s***... I want the same experience I remember from 20 years ago when I was just like 5 or something and I could barely remember it BUT it was like WOW this amazing space game or something! Yeah I want THAT!

When is {steam / volition / EA sports???} going to get their a**es in gear and UPDATE THIS GAME! I am willing to go to the ENDS OF THE EARTH TO PLAY THIS GAME AGAIN but it HAS to be on Windows {7, 10, 11, 12}, as sourcing an old PC is impossible as we all know. ALSO IT HAS TO BE IN MY LANGUAGE BUT I WON'T TELL YOU WHAT MY LANGUAGE IS!

I just want it to be a shitty experience but also not be shitty but also BE LIKE THAT GAME I SAW WHEN I WAS 5 YES DO THAT AND WITHOUT INSTALLING SOME THIRD PARTY BS "FSO" I CANNOT SPEAK ENGLISH :) DO IT LIKE THAT :( :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

{50+ paragraphs of how FSO is bad and also how I can't speak english}

Volition is like, some guys, who were like, made this game, and obviously they care about it 20+ years later woooo yeah so let's see an update for Window! I don't know what I'm talking about, btw.

Ok look, there is no way that Volition released the source code way back in 2002, as we already mentioned, I went to sleep in 1999ish and woke up now, so it is impossible for that to happen, also I don't know what source code is. Blahblahblah blah, you see, releasing something for free cannot possibly work, as I have never been involved in the video games industry at all but {30 paragraphs of "how I think businesses work"}

I KEEP SEEING HIGH RES VIDEOS OF FS2 ON YOUTUBE SO HOW ARE THOSE GUYS DOING IT? THEY MUST BE USING "SOME SECRET WAY" OR "SOME SECRET THING" BUT THAT THING CAN'T BE FSO, BECAUSE FSO IS A VIRUS. AGAIN, I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ANYTHING.

Just open reg files and modify all this sh1t, to get some literally garbage 1998 experience, that's how the original developers (Volition? EA Sports? Ford Motor Company?) "expected u" to play the game, you will be ruining the memory with this "high res graphics" sh1t, also I DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH AND I END SENTENCES LIKE THIS :)

Btw, I tried wxlauncher, mawdz, and everything else from 2005, I tried everything except for FSO basically, so I will keep writing this post for some reason. I don't speak english :( but in my country blah blah blah blah...

Wow I'm still going and I wonder how I could contradict myself more? Here I go. Ahem. IN MY COUNTRY CD FREESPACE 2????? WHEN I WAS 5 IT WAS THIS AMAZING GAME FROM EA SPORTS AND NOW IT IS NOT PLAYABLE ON WINDOW, WINDOWS? IS IT CALLED WINDOW OR WINDOWS OR WIN OR W? GUYS HOW GET FS2 WORK ON W10?

Gnome.
Shameless. Excessively loquacious. Still somehow constantly on the brink of making sense.
I'll have some of whatever this guy had.

To answer your question: You're going to have to dig up your dad's grave to retrieve the demo disc. I suggest going at night so no one is around when you arrive on site. Bring a backhoe so you'll have a tool that can both dig fast and crack whatever casket he's in. Steal it, don't rent it; you don't want to leave a paper trail. Once you've accessed the casket, you should grab all pieces of the disc and leave quickly before anyone can arrive. Don't forget to act surprised and sad if any cops show up to deliver the news and/or ask questions.

You'll want to disinfect the disc. Easiest way is to probably just grab your bottle of vodka and pour some of that over it; make sure to get a rag to spread the alcohol across the entire disc, top and bottom. If you have it, Everclear should work even better than vodka. Don't drink the stuff you use to cleanse the disc! Give it a day to dry, then very carefully super glue the pieces back together. Take some time to make sure you have them all oriented correctly before gluing anything!

After that, you should be good to go. Iirc, the demo disc can run on Windows XP. You might need to clear the registry or something after playing for a while because the controls will periodically lock up to encourage you to buy the game (they'll eventually unlock, but it takes a minute or two, which can be rough when you're dog fighting Dragons). Good luck and happy space fighting!
