    Freespace 2 - Wii

    An other great game from the old days was ported to the Wii - Freespace 2. Litghost a member of Tehskeen ported the engine of Freespace 2 to the Wii. All you need are some original files from the game and his port of the engine to enjoy this great game.

    SWEET! That's one of the BEST 3D space shooters ever created. Wish we'd get something even remotely close to this on the DS.

    So how does it control? There were a LOT of commands in this game. How did they squeeze the controls into the limited key set of the Wii's controllers?

    i'm very surprised how well it runs, the wiimote is no replacement for a force feedback joystick but never the less it isn't too bad - i'm going to have to try rebinding the keys using the classic controller

    Hmm, I tried running it off of my external and it was pretty slow. Does it make a difference if I'm using IOS222 or IOS202, because in the description it mentions IOS202 specifically.

    Yeah, I just tested it on my HDD and it doesn't detect and use IOS222. It works great with IOS202, though.

    Hi, as you know, in order to play this one you need the data files from the full retail game.

    Is there any space-lover who can gently provide the files needed:

    * root_fs2.vp
    * smarty_fs2.vp
    * sparky_fs2.vp
    * stu_fs2.vp
    * tango1_fs2.vp
    * tango2_fs2.vp
    * tango3_fs2.vp
    * warble_fs2.vp

    Im sure space-ship gamers would understand my situation
    Thank you very very much in advance
