Subject: Freelancer Crossfire Instructions

Forum/website/etc is here: http://www.crossfire.swat-portal.com/

1.82 Wiki here: http://px.zumreden.de/site/?page_id=789

Procure and install Freelancer. Easy Peasy.

If you already have FL installed, I recommend blowing it completely away and doing it from scratch.


Go HERE: http://www.crossfire.swat-portal.com/?page_id=41515

And get the FLMM 1.3... install it BEFORE the mod.

Grab the 1.9 client, install it, make sure it installs into the FLMM folder.

Now, run FLMM, check 1.9 mod (and nothing else) and install it.

Once you run it, get into the game and then just exit. (I did read that you need to turn off 3D sound, but that may be for an earlier version... I turned it off)

Now you have to edit a few files to get widescreen working (Just ctrl+c/ctrl+v them to back them up first):

1) Go to My Documents\My Games\Freelancer and open prefoptions in notepad. At the bottom it will say [Display] and underneath size= change it to 1920, 1080. Note the space in between the 1920, 1080. Now save and exit.

2) Now go to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Freelancer\DATA . Once there open cameras in notepad
Delete whats there and paste the following.
[WinCamera]
fovx = 63.504809977813375

[CockpitCamera]
fovx = 90
znear = 2.000000

[ChaseCamera]
fovx = 90

[DeathCamera]
fovx = 90
Now save and exit.

3) Now go to C:\program files\microsoft games\freelancer\EXE . Once there open freelancer in notepad.
At about the 9th line down it says size change it to size = 1920,1080 ,or what ever resolution you are using.
Now save and exit.
4) Now go C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Freelancer\DATA\FONTS .Once there open fonts in to notepad. Now delete all whats there and paste the following.
