Did you also download the 710 patches? The infamous 'black box patches' that is?

These
http://fs2source.warpcore.org/mediavp/mp-710_adveffects.rar
http://fs2source.warpcore.org/mediavp/mp-710_effects.rar
http://fs2source.warpcore.org/mediavp/mp-710_models.rar

Though if you are not using adveffects then you wont need the first one.

Also when you start the launcher make sure its new (something like 5.4 or 5.5)

i've got the 710 files allready, then. i'll try downloading the new launcher, but i don't see how that would be the problem. all the issues seem to be minor graphical things, like the capitals ships displaying no engine glow and the wierd black boxes around my primary laser shots. the thing is, Inferno works fine. so i have no idea.
