In order to use Freespace with the Freespace 2 source code a new VP is required. This VP provides updated/missing files that are needed for the game. If you do not wish to go through the hassle of compiling from CVS then I highly suggest using one of ravage's installers for Freespace 1, the Freespace: Silent Threat add-on, and Freespace 2.

Original Freespace pilot data is not supported in this version and the game will probably delete the files if found. This version does use a different location to store Pilots but please be sure to backup your current player files before running the game.

Dec 01, 2003:
Current CVS now has MS-ADPCM support so the extra sounds VP has been removed.
