Thirty-two years have passed since the Lucifer was destroyed. Its reactors were breached causing it go nova as it exited the SOL jump node. Since then the Earth has been cutoff from the rest of the galaxy.

A group of rebels, the Neo Terran Front (NTF), have been putting a huge strain on the Terran-Vasudan relations and the new Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance (GTVA). Due to a discovery made by the NTF, an ancient device created by the "Ancients," a portal has been opened leading directly into Shivan space. The Shivans from "The Great War" are back and they are pissed off. You, a member of the human "Lost Generation", will have to answer the call to war.

After purchase, download to Desura & successful multiple installations and attempts to launch I get two (2) error messages: (1) "Please configure your system in the launcher before running FPS2. The launcher will now be started!" (2) "Freespace2/Fred2 cannot be launched from a drive root directory." Please help.

You need to go to Hard-light.net and follow the instructions. when you download Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer and folowed the instructin for that find the file named FRED2 within C:\Program Files (x86)\Desura\Common\Freespace 2\ and move it to the folder you created for the files you downloaded with Turey's FreeSpace Open Installer. then move the file named fs2_open_3_6_14 into the C:\Program Files (x86)\Desura\Common\Freespace 2\ folder. then you duoble click it and it will start up the game. Then you can creat a short cut to the game on your desktop. This worked for me and I hope it works for you!
