The last stand

Crossfire 2.0 - Release

In 2014 we had to deal with lots of critics regarding the overdue Mod release. Infact the development of the Mod took much longer than expected in first place. There were many reasons for the delay, such as technical problems (as we were really working at the limits of whats possible with the game engine), the sheer size of the Mod, community feedback and wishes which convinced us to add even more content than originally intended. The amount of time and work we have invested to build the new version has been massive.

I wish I could say that all the work is done, already.
A few weeks ago we have silently released a public Beta version of the Crossfire 2.0 Mod and since that we have been pretty quiet about it here at ModDb.
We knew that the singleplayer part of the Mod was working flawlessly, but our server software (which has been completely rewritten for CF 2.0) required a step by step testing and debugging period. We decided to go through that procedure with the core Crossfire Online Community. It was the best possible test environment for us to locate and fix the most urgent problems aswell as getting qualified feedback from long term Crossfire players. Every day the Mod and server software are getting better and more reliable.

Since we clearly didn't want enter the Mod Awards 2014 with empty hands you are free to download the latest Beta version of Crossfire 2.0 at www.swat-portal.com
You will very soon notice how much work went into this massive Mod which truly can be called the "Freelancer sequel".
But please keep in mind that this is just a Beta version of the Mod and that we are still working on the Multiplayer part of it. Many server features are currently not even active, but we will change that bit by bit in the next few weeks.

Download, Support and Feedback

As long we are still Beta testing the Mod we will not provide a Download for Crossfire 2.0 here at ModDb. You will only be able to download it from www.swat-portal.com since we are from time to time updating this download. When all tests are done we will of course release a final version of the Mod here aswell. Until then the only valid download link will be at the SWAT Portal website.

If you need help or if you want to report a problem then use our Bug Tracker. We will take care of the issue as soon as possible.
We will not give any support here at Moddb (we don't have the time to do that on multiple websites -> so use the official Bug Tracker)

You can leave your feedback on the official Crossfire Forums or post your suggestions here


Crossfire 2.0 contains 43 exciting main story missions which extend the original game and will lead the player to an epic showdown. New exciting battles, cutscenes and discoveries await you. Are you read for it? Can you unlock the 44th mission (bonus mission)?

Crossfire 2.0 does not only show you the end of the official storyline, it also allows the community to develop and add new side stories. New bonus missions and side stories will be added to Crossfire in the next months and years. Be part of it... be part of the development... be part of our community.

goodone Jan 27 2008 replied:

take a look at the news. microsoft took down global list server, so u have to get urself a workaround to b able to play multiplayer.

the best way, imho, is to download a mod and use it for mp. there r a few really good ones, so take ur pick.

goodone Jan 25 2008 replied:

well, m8, it seems u have a quite bad net connection. u could use /ping command in chatbox as soon as u get online on one of the server (most of them support ping command) to see if u've got any packet losses (usually the 2nd number). if there r any loses, u have either a bad connection, or some settings on ur connection r wrong.

u could try a few more servers, like ones closer to ur location, it could help. ofc, playing at off-peak hours, like during the night, could also help this issue, in a case of a bad net.
