After my first experience with online games in 2000 I've build up and successfully ran several large online clans. In 2001 climbed up the ladder in Starlancer and managed to become one of the most successful players worldwide in that game aswell as leader of the largest clan. Since that I stuck to the Sci-fi game genre. In 2002 the SWAT Portal was founded and since that I am leading this Sci-fi Game Portal that supports a large range of games. One of these games is Freelancer. Not long after its release in 2003 I've started modding the game (my modding experiences with other games reach back to 1993 where I've created my first work). Until now I've created 4 Freelancer mods and assisted countless of other Mod projects. The Crossfire Mod which is currently my main project keeps holding the Top position of the Freelancer mods for several years. Most important for me is the success of the SWAT Community and its members aswell as professional work.

It is adviced to use FLMM 1.31 since its the last version which could correctly use scripts. However i doubt that a missing dll can be explained with that.

Well, movies.dll is a file of the original Freelancer (we didn't even touch that). If its missing then your game installation must have been wrong. In this case it wouldn't surprise me if you experience crashes.

You dont have to donate anything... and we dont have to rush for a few ppl which dont even appreciate thousands of hours hard work.
The fact that this is a free time project is totally ignored buy you guys. This means... we work on the mod when we have time for it... when we dont have time for it we cant work on it.
The project was slowed down by:
- 1 month i-net probs due to incompetent t-com
- rl probs of one of our coders
- extended rl job working hours
- several online attacks on our server and website in the past months
- many additional features and changes which we introduced by request of our community
- the idiotic beef of some ppl here at moddb that have nothing else to do than to disturb us

Bad planning and organization? Clearly not.
You can not plan anything of that. You can not say "hey in 2 months my internet will die and in 4 months a new discovery will allow us to make our mod even better". Thats not now it works. Not even the most professional company could predict such stuff.
And you can not expect that our team members work 8 hours per day guaranteed on the mod... its not our main job.
If you know someone who could do our job better than us... well... there are none.

This stupid complaining is so idiotic. The development of the Freelancer game environment took more than 6 years.... and you complain about a few months of justified delay on a project that is 9-10 times bigger than the original game?

Huor will be back in about one week.
The server configuration is almost done and the tests were better than expected. Most features are running without any issues but there are a few probs which need to be fixed prior the release.
What I can tell atm is that during the entire tests we didnt experience and performance problems or crashes.
I am sure that once Huor is back from vacation the remaining issues can be fixed pretty fast so the mod can be released then.

Ok, mister.
1. I am the only one here who could "hide" comments of users or guests... nobody else from the team can do this.
2. I did not remove anything from you.
3. This leaves only one conclusion: your comments were removed by the Moddb staff.
4. Nobody here has seen any constructive criticism from you. We have seen accusations... we have seen blaming... we have seen false information and we have seen how our work on the mod and the Freelancer community has been defamed by your comments.
This btw. could have been reason for the moddb staff member to remove your comments (just a guess).
5. You can play the victim now if you want but that does not change the fact that your comments were removed due to rule violations.
6. You also should take a moment and think about how constructive critics might look like. Such stuff does clearly not involve such blaming and offensive behaviour we could observe here lately from our "guests". Believe it or not but we listen to constructive critics (if they are some) and are clearly willing to help when help is requested in a friendly way.
7. At this point I'd like to thank the moddb staff member who is cleaning this messs. This allows me to do my job without having a bad feeling.
