FSOpen in Windows 10
If you have FreeSpace 2, you can download a much better version of the game, and a sh!t-ton of mods including the first FreeSpace. I learnt all this from the Reaxxion site of blessed memory.
I couldn't just copy over my files. FSOpen requires that something called "OpenAL" be installed. You could run FreeSpaceOpenInstaller... but it's a .jar.
So: I installed Java first. Then, I downloaded FreeSpaceOpenInstaller.jar - which wouldn't doubleclick. So I opened a command-prompt, and ran java -jar FreeSpaceOpenInstaller.jar in that. OpenAL was the only product I wanted to download at this time.
The old launcher fails too in Windows 10. But there's a wxlauncher; so I installed that, and ran that instead.
Bada-bing. All my old files now work.
