Hmm well looking at the installed program list I seem to have the custom database, but inmm doesn't seem to be there.

Remember that that is '_inmm' with the underscore. I noticed that you have UAC on. _inmm will install in the %ProgramFiles% directory. Did you run the installer as admin? I would have thought that it would have asked you about it at the point of installing _inmm.

I can certainly run the installer as an admin for another go, but as I recall the installer asked to install audio/ music without running as admin . Perhaps part of my issue is that I'm installing to a custom location, but I think that is kind of doubtful. And a fresh install running the installer as admin results in the same error when attempting to play a mission.

The message asking if you want to download the files is a different one. That is from the installer. The one for _inmm should have been from UAC because it wants to install in the %ProgramFiles% directory, a system folder.

Hmm well I never got anything asking me to download _inmm but I did manage to track down a file with that name although it's just a config file with a few audio track locations inside it. Although seeing it's not in the program list I assume that isn't the correct thing we are looking for.

It is not a download it is included in the installer. Try running it separately. it install to its default location.

Ah well that certainly fixed the main issue I had with the game apparently seeing how the other can just be delt with alt+enter for the most part. I'll give the campaign a whirl, and report any issues I notice if any with the game after this.

I'm having the issue with Starsiege where it keeps asking for disc 2. I've clicked "Cancel" on it and the game seems to install fine anyway, but the music is missing sadly since disc 2 is where the music data is I believe.

I never got around to adapting the installer to the freeware release. The reason that there is no music is because the freeware releases are ISOs, which cannot contain the CDA tracks. I addressed this by uploading the CDA tracks for the updated installer to download.

Ah, okay. The game seems playable without the music but if I try running the setup without the new installer the Dynamix logo splash comes up and it just stops after reaching 100%.
