---QUOTATION---
Freespace 2 is free on GOG

---END QUOTATION---


On Windows 10 I can so far only make it run properly in Win95 compatibility mode and with resolution forced to 640x480 (and rebooting after these changes).

I see no way of changing resolution in the game's Options menu, the menual only mentions a first launch configuration window that I never got.


---QUOTATION---
I strongly recommend using Free Space Open (Installer) [FSO], if you want to properly enjoy the Freespace games:

---END QUOTATION---


Seems that requires Java on your computer.

A word of warning about GOG's two factor authentication if using a VPN. It appears everytime GOG detects an IP number appearing to come from another country(?) than before, GOG emails you a security code that you must enter in order to sign in. This gets tiresome real quick (but can be disabled). Also the whole GOG site seems to be automatically served in the language of your IP, a language that you may or may not understand with no(?) way of changing it.

Are you saying it falsely thinks you are in another country or you actually are moving about the globe? I've never had any trouble and I certainly would imagine that would suck if it changed to a language you could not get out of.

Yes, that's what it seems like.

Yes, maybe you are just travelling and don't understand the language of the country they think you're in.

But once you're logged in GOG reverts to the language you've set in your preferences.

EDIT: wait, now I found a language setting at the bottom (even without being logged in).
