    After I calmed down a bit and had a cup of Tea, I deleted everything, made sure there was nothing left, then re downloaded both Steam and FF "To the same drive this time"....still the same problem.

    I did some searching for what could possibly be wrong.....came up with either two different error messages when checking the state of the FF download....either a dll. file is missing...or error message 0x80070643 - Fatal error during instalation.
    I posted the specifics at the FF site.

    Note that the build is windows only, despite being able to download it on Mac OSX and not really complaining that you're on an unsupported platform, it's windows only, if you are in windows, right click the game in the library, go to properties -> local files -> verify integrity

    Al installation issues should've been fixed since monday though (unless they pushed a new update or something)
    Make sure you're on the TPP branch as well (also in the properties windows, last tab: betas -> from the drop down, select the test_pilot branch)

    Ok now, since noone seems to be willing to address the elephant in the room, I'm gonna do it:
    To all the wipEout veterans out there, especially people fond of w3o's feel - do you feel any joy at all playing this build of formula fusion? Because I have to say, I absolutely loathe it. Now, I know this is very rough and very early, and there will be a lot of tweaks, but the very CORE of this gameplay is so fundamentally wrong in every aspect, I don't even know where to begin. What baffles me, is that this is made by ex-wipEout developers - heck, even people who worked on the perfection that is w3o - and they still managed to get everything about the handling, the sensation of speed, the floating/flying, the claustrophobia of narrow tracks so utterly and sensationally wrong! This is in no way a spiritual successor of wipEout, especially not to the original trilogy, and it just shows that without the right feel you get something quite boring. This early version feels stiff, twitchy, slow as f*ck and dominated by weapons. Sorry for being so harsh, but I have put a lot of trust (and money) into R8 Games' ability to create something that feels like wipEout, and so far I can't see this early version eventually evolving into something even remotely resembling wipEout's feel.

    Ok guys ...FINALLY I got this SOAB to work....it took a lot of leg [keyboard] work to sort out, and to find out what the possible problems could be, then how to question if they were the same ones others are having....after sorting that, actually solving the problem.

    Those having problems....I need to know your OS is first, which Windows Version are you on....please update your OS ASAP
    You want the latest Windows Net.Framework build to run FF, currently with WIN 8.1 it's at 4.5.2 ...it's a newer one on Win 10, but you don't need it...if you have Windows automatic updates turned on, well you should be OK.....To save you doing so, I checked, there are no Optional Updates that are available that will sort any problems regarding getting this game to work.

    Slightly OT: BUT -- DON'T TOUCH WIN 10 - MEGA Security ALERT!!! [personal information sharing issues ] with Microsoft's terms of agreement...see below
    http://bgr.com/2015/07/31/windows-10...ow-to-opt-out/

    My problem was when downloading the FF game, not all the files loaded ....there was a dll. file missing that stopped the game launching.....according to those at R8 responding at the FF forum, this is not a uncommon occurrence, it happens with a lot of PC games [The very reason I've avoided PC games for 20 years]
    http://formulafusion.co.uk/index.php...and-game-file/

    I'll post a link above, rather than typing it all out again, what question/response were, and how I solved what was wrong [wait for answers and you'll die of old age]......but I can understand is anybody reading this thread goes...WTF....that doesn't help me.......which is why I'll keep a keen eye on anybody that posts as much in this thread.....I'll get the FU6KER working for you if it kills me!

    You need to know how to get access to certain folders in Windows OS to see what's in them [you need to have admin access as well - if you are sole user- you have admin access]....do you know your way around Windows? Y/N ?
    Answer that, then I'll help fix your problems....it just means I have to give very specific instructions on how to get to, rather than just telling people, which item within a specific sub folder, to check/change

    NO , you are not the only one.....I see this early incarnation of FF as a bedevilled love child of some slightly addled programmers within R8 that did PURE while with Psygnosis/SL, then Blur with Bizzare Creations, each a unique idea for a change within a game, but each that failed to get people to actually embrace that idea, and play the game.....a rather pointless pursuit to take further you should logically deduce, if you already know people didn't play it, and it had cost your studio to close.

    The Semi Transparent shield icons one has to run "INTO" rather than over, is my major bug bear....ElHabib....I know you work in the industry, and know some of the guys...please, help them help themselves before it's too late.

    I've not played it so cant comment on how it feels but to derail for one minute as I dont like misinformation, especially when it keeps getting blindly repeated as if fact....

    NO ONE from the Wipeout Pure dev team is working on this game (I could give a break down of where we are all currently working, but I cant be arsed, just take it from me given I am in regular contact with most of them - you work with folk for 10yrs you keep in touch, and the industry is kind of small so you always hear what folk are upto).
    I dont know who is on the code team of R8, but I do know where all the Wipeout Pure coders are working currently (and the designers, and most of the artists )

    R8 does have a couple of people from Psygnosis Studio Leeds, who were artists on WO3. This information is on their website.



    Oh and Wipeout Pure is almost certainly the most successful Wipeout to date. Pure sold close to 1.5million copies and made plenty of money for the studio (not saying its the best). WOHD ultimately had more people playing, but was given away a couple of times by Sony, once to apologise for the hack of PSN and I think it was on PS+ too.

    But yeah, Studio Liverpool didnt close because of Wipeout Pure, or indeed any of the Wipeout games.

    Apologies for the thread hijack, but there have been so many lazy journalist stories assuming this game is made by people from Studio Liverpool, I thought it important, no one in this industry wants to be given credit for, or take credit for working on projects they didn't.
    Studio Leeds made Wipeout3 (and WO3SE of course), and those guys deserve plaudits for that game, a few of them work at R8, but it shouldnt be confused with those of us who were at Studio Liverpool.

    I hope that sets a couple of things straight.
