88 Flak is a fast-paced combat mod for the 3D action game Freelancer by Digital Anvil. It aims to bring quick and brutal arena-like combat to Freelancer with Unreal Tournament 2004 style speed and years of refined Team Fortress inspired class balancing. In addition, it aims to expand the gameplay experience with numerous new features, including docking on player Battleships (use teammates as mobile bases), purchasable stations (private bases that shoot at hostile NPCs and players), hiring AI wingmen, dynamic AI routines (88 Flak's AI is hailed to be the best in Freelancer), ability to script story missions in multiplayer (extremely beta), AI Bots (persistent NPCs with their own reputations and loadouts), and full customization via a Freelancer Mods Manager script with configurable client-side and server-side options such as advanced graphics/audio and more.
This hotfix is only needed for servers. It contains a new FLHook module with several fixes to remedy stability, which will fix nearly all of the server crash issues in RC129. This package also includes Server Crash Hotfix 1, which removed the Tutorial script. There is a rare crash that still occurs, but it is not nearly as bad. A full server crash fix will be included with the soon to be released RC130 (the last crash is still being hunted). Thanks for your patience, folks! Bear with us while we figure it out. =) ~fox
