In case anyone gets the error I did, "Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D", post #2 in this thread (which took me awhile to find) had the solution.

Make sure you also get Freespace Open. It's the open source Freespace 2 engine, with updated graphics capabilities, such as support for modern high resolution widescreen displays. You'll also be able to load modern mods such as new missions or even total conversions.

Is there any kind of time pressure on how quickly we must get Freespace Open? I already added Freespace 2 to my GoG library, so I'm good there.

I assume Freespace Open is free and open (ha!) but just want to verify. I'd hate to finally sit down to play FreeSpace 2 for the first time like 18 months from now only to discover I missed my chance to download the thing that lets it fill my screen.

Yeah it’s open source. Totally free. Think of it like a mod.

Nice! I had been eyeballing that. Going to download it and look at the pretty icon on my desktop and not play it because I don't play anything anymore ever

That sounds so dumb but it also sounds like you’re describing me.

Time to create an Epic account, thanks for the tip!


Does anyone have any reverse effect from just freeloading?
