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.

yes its 2017... and there never will be a torrent of it for the fact that we have to do updates which you cant do on torrents since you have absolutely no control over who is hosting it... what is being hosted... and if the downloaded data actually is what it was meant to be. It is not possible to give players support if they download the mod from a torrent source.

We have two official download sources which get updated by us when required. Both sites host exactly the same download file.
After ~50.000 downloads I havent heard a single person complain about malicious stuff.
Funny is that Chrome only complains when downloading the file from moddb. When I try to download exactly the same file from Swat-portal.com
everything works and all of a sudden its not a malicious file anymore.
But... yeah... that Chrome. (terrible browser and definitely no working security tool)

thats not possible.
due to the dynamic economy and dynamic universe (which i will introduce soon) the client and server versions have to run synchronized.

Id blame the microsoft account. My hotmail account also seems to eat mails from specific sources.
Dunno why.

I have activated your account manually now.
Reason for the restriction is pretty simply... the SWAT Portal is a community... not a wiki. We want active users which communicate.
Next to that are read permissions bound to specific usergroups due to the fact that we support multiple games.

no, the mod manager is just there to get the mod activated correctly. There is no way to download mods with it.

The latest download from here is +1 year old. In the meantime a large amount of patches and new content was released on the fly to the users via the launcher. Every few weeks minor patches and updates get released. And there is a daily update to syncronize the market (and soon the dynamic universe) with the server.

There is a readme with installation instructions.

it could be that your internet connection has packet losses and thus the files get damaged while downloading. You could try downloading the mod using a download manager and/or you can try to download the mod from our filebase at www.swat-portal.com

If you have the same menu then not.
You clearly would see the difference between vanilla FL and Crossfire on first sight.

Most likely the mod manager installed it into the wrong directory. Check your FLMM settings and select your vanilla FL folder there.

The mod manager requires some time to get the activation done. That is normal. Just wait and it will do the job in background.

You have selected the OpenSP (Open Singleplayer without story) on the launcher. Thats why.

No parameters.
You can do all settings you need to do right on the launcher options.

Dont use autosaves. Autosaves store wrong mission triggers for some unknown reason.

There are mission generated savegames (the ones with the mission names), they will work much better.

The ending should play a cut scene.
Maybe you just missed a story trigger.

There is one region of space in the mod which has instable jump holes. That is normal.

That depends on your taste.
Ive seen screenshots of other players at www.swat-portal.com using pretty much every kind of shader option.

I personally use the sweetfx one.

You said that the window mode is working.
Why dont you simply stick with that and press alt+enter when you are on the main menu. That enables the full screen.

The mod does not have a problem with your graphic card. The problem is the transparency of windows that was introduced with windows vista and later is used on windows 7 windows 8 and windows 10.

On windows 10 for me the compatiblity modes for windows 7 and windows 8 did help. I have changed the properties of the Freelancer.exe and only enabled the windows 7 compatiblity mode and "run as administrator". That seems to fix the black screen and all other issues.

FLMM does not crash, it just does not respond for a few minutes. That is normal.

Every version works but 1.0 is recommended.
The 1.1 patch is by default not needed on a client version.

You probably should try to change the shader settings on the launcher options to vanilla. Some newer graphic cards seem to have problems with the default shader.

what are you actually talking about?
Thousands of players got it running without any errors... maybe you are just doing something wrong.

Oh and thank you for downvoting for even trying to ask for help.

The mod is updating it via its launcher.

It works in Multiplayer, Singleplayer (with storyline -> 45 new missions) and in OpenSP (Singleplay without storyline.

You can switch between the singleplayer modes on the mod launcher.
