That must be some good compression they're using there.  :D

I believe the 1 kb file size is because the movies don't contain anything.  The files just need to be there for the game to run (no idea why Outrage made it that way).  On "medium" install, the movies are read from the CD.  (I believe it works the same way in D2.)

So delete them then copy any you are missing.

My problem is I can't get them off the CD because my CD drive doesn't work.  (Even when it did, the installer would crash when I tried to do the full install).

OG3 =/= D3.

update: Thomas to it (http://www.dateiliste.com/component/content/article/442-special-directory.html/?dir=%2Finstaller%2F96.233.121.35_c1119ddc02a4a19e4530317477810470%2FD3%2F)

What made you think this will work, although on the page just before you reach that one it clearly says it won't?

It takes you a maximum of 2 hours to download "the rest", including OG3, ready to be played, if you have DSL, maybe another 15 minutes to install it. You can have a coffee, some snack, or a beer in the meantime.

I'd take me 10 hours (or more) to create your OG3 stand-alone installer, without coffee, snack, or a beer.

So far, almost 200 others were happy with "the rest", including OG3.

You're right, that's a "No". ;)

But you're the one who can install Descent 3 in less than 2 days full-time and never had any problems. ;)

I can assure you, you are really funny. ;)

I don't considering downloading and installing 3gb of extras to be part of installing D3. I also already have a nearly 5-gb D3 folder, why would I want to use your installer and end up with less in the end? Nobody even plays OG3 anyway so it would be a waste to install the entire game again just to use one mod that nobody plays anyway that requires other players to play with.

Am I doing something wrong when installing OG3 or does it just not work period? And how did you get it to work in your installer when the one it comes with doesn't?

Please don't troll. It was funny the first time, slightly humorous the second time, now it's just getting old.

It worked for you.

It's what's called a session URI (or URL). It also disappears after some time.

I'm not sure what OG3 is to be honest but this installer is pretty good.
It certainly opened my eyes to all the mods out there. I can understand why people would want to use the discs at the same time.
I understand that not everyone believes in things that they haven't done/installed themselves but this package Thomas has released works great for me.

Olympia Gold is a racing mod for D3. And tyhe reason nobody ever plays it, is it never worked 100%.

Seems like a fun concept though, if Tomas got it working maybe someone will host it, once word gets out some more and people get it installed.
