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.

no and that wont change
but you can try using a download manager which resumes your download when there is a connection error.
next to that should you check your i-net connection. download errors usually indicate that there is a packet loss on that line

2 possibilities
- edit the perfopt.ini inside your "my games/freelancer" folder and set the hardware check to disable
- add your graphic card to the flconfigdatabase.txt

(instruction can be found at Swat-portal.com)

errors in FLMM indicate that there is no clean FL installation or write protected FL directoy

This error usually means that a file can not be copied (probably missing). Can you please check if your AV quarantined a file?

If so you will need to create an exception for that file or for the FL folder.

Check the house systems... NY, NB, etc.
There you can find weapons and ammo.

you can delete or rename the wmv files in the movies directory
that would disable the vids

shaders have multiple functions... they basically improve the look of the game (quality) or change the look to something different (different saturations or color settings)
While Freelancer is a DX8 game, the shaders add DX9 and DX10 render features via post processing.

To my experience from the the past 13 years FL all mods which had regional servers (with the exception of disco) vanished. We are more interested to focus the community on one server where the players can play together and interact with each other.
Next to that there is a technical aspect: many Crossfire unique features require a synchronization of server and clients. Thats not possible in LAN plan or if there are multiple servers. Multiple servers would probably even cause risks for the stability of our main server. Finding a solution for such problems definitely is not easy and I am simply not sure if its even worth the work considering how small the whole FL community meanwhile is. Its not even clear if more than a handful of players would benefit from it while alot more players would benefit if we focus our work on the mod and the main server.

more servers would only devide the community

The new story starts right after mission 13 of the original campaign (its an extension to the original storyline).
