I'm getting it with FS2_Open. Sadly I didn't read the bit about backing 
up my pure Freespace2 pilots before trying it out (so my mid-point 
pilots are gone) but FS2_Open is working well for me (apart from the 
Virgo wing issue...).

Maybe I'll try and play through to this level on the Icculus codebase 
(assuming that the busted jump drive issue can be diagnosed :-) ). Your 
efforts are greatly appreciated in keeping the code fixed up.
