This is ridiculous!! I see a lot of desperate people asking desperate questions about this f***ing O2 viewer not working or about errors they receive or the g*damn thing not even loading up and STILL I'm in square one! I've tried, tried, retried and tried again and nothing! I've followed EVERY G*DDAMN instructional/tutorial there is on the Web and NOTHING! I've asked questions and STILL NOTHING!!!
What good is it having a troubleshooting forum if none of the gurus help us out?! Its like the deaf leading the blind around here! I've asked questions in every OFP site I can think of and with the exception of two or three kind souls responding to my pleas, I'm still stuck! THIS SUCKS!
I've had it it with this O2 viewer, O2light, root drive, fake drive, etc bullsh*t! I realize its a wonderful tool to have, but what good is it if the new guys can't even load it up?! I've haad it...BIS can shove it in their collective asses!
You must understand O2 was released without support and it is somewhat frustrating.
They did provide the forums which is a blessing.
It seems all the Gurus are busy and it is the holidays an such and I am left here running my mouth.
I am far from a guru but am beyond the begineer stage thankfully, and its coming to me now and where is everyone?
But nevertheless i feel your sorrow and I hope you don't give up? I do recall when I first got O2 I did get UE'S (unhandled exception or fatal...common in Tribes 2 LOL)
I think the flashpoint.cfg did fix the problem for me but I don't rceall exactly what the problem was I had
Maybe I did have to change something I don't remember
In your situation I might try current video drivers or changes in the config for them,latest direct x,swap file ,memory errors
or who knows ...list goes on
And it all goes back to the troubleshooting sections here on the forums or somewheres theres prolly a better answer that I could give
And you realize there are old breathe forums that you can only read now?
Unfortunately I have studied these forums and I don't have the answer...maybe if you could show the .rpt files that O2 gives I could be of further help
And Happy New Year!!!

you probaly had a error like cfg worlds or something with the 3d glide or something
i use Alt-Tab to get out of Buldozer then i edit and go to buldozer again, thats how i work. There are also people that let Buldozer run in a window.
i must admit I've never heard of this fake Z drive before. What is it that caused you to have to do this, and state exactly what other problems you have had with it. I get the impression you have done this before, but this thread has now attracted interest, so it is likely your problem will be solved. Addon maing is unbelievably painstaking work, and you are certain to find that you computer actively seeks you out and attempts to stop your work succeeding at every possible oppurtunity. But it is worth it when you finally get something to work, and can send it to others
It souns to me like you ahve definitely got buldozer working. As the other chap said try alt-tab ing out of it. you may find that oxygen is infact running?Unlikely I know but try it. And dont forget to post what other problems you have been having.
Chris, the Z: drive debacle was explained to me using brssebs O2 tutorial found at: O2 ***Tutorial
There you will find the directions I followed to install and run O2. I followed them exactly. Please tell me if they are wrong. Did you install it the way it states in the tutorial? If not, how did you do it? Do you doubleclick on the buldozer file OR the Objective2Light file? ***Everytime I click on the budozer fiule I get a sea with a square. Everytime I click on the Objeciv2light, I get the blue sky and ground screen, but NO main editor window comes up(and this is where I'll try the alt-tab thing. How'd you guys do it? I'd appreciate any details you and Vixer can throw my way. I really appreciate you guys taking the time to help me out.
I'm going to ty out the ALT-TAB thing and I'll come back and post the results.
i think its because the bis textures are in the data folder, all directorys of BIS textures on their models have the path data not C:/operationflashpoint or something just data so the exe needs to be on the Z drive so it can find the datafolder i gues...
Right, Buldozer should show a blue sky against a green, brown background. Until you can get Oxygen to work you wont be able to reconfigure it. But don't worry about that buldozer thing where you can only see the sea, it's a minor issue that can be fixed in about 10 seconds once you can get Oxygen to run. That is your main priority. i must admit I didnt have to use the Z file thing. I simply unzipped O2 to my folder in C drive and it gave me no hassle at all. I'll check out that tutorial to see what brsseb says about the Z file and come back to you.
