Q and A

Q: Why did you make this program?
A: Due to Microsoft recently shutting down the Global Servers (the servers that list the Multiplayer Games), the Freelancer modding community has made an alternative Global Server. The only problem is, to connect to the custom Global Server, you must edit your Freelancer game files. Some users feel this is a complex process, and this program edits the game files for you.

Q: How do I use this program?
A: 1.) Start the program
2.) Click browse
3.) Locate the Freelancer.INI file in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Freelancer directory. (The program will attempt to help you with this step.)
4.) Click Apply ONCE
5.) Quit
6.) Start Freelancer
7.) Go to Multi-player, Internet
8.) Pick a server and Enjoy

Q: This is awesome/terrible/I want to help, how can I let you know?
A: Just contact me on ModDb or by email to joeblow2008@hotmail.com, any comments/questions are greatly aprreciated!

Critical Issue!

News 0 comments

Unknown to me, there was a SEVERE Issue with the program preventing it from having any functionality what-so-ever. I will have a fixed version up as soon as possible. In the meanwhile, you might have to reinstall. I am severely sorry, and I am now working on creating a revised version

This is what it does : It modifys your freelancer.ini file so you can play the game online. Microsoft turned OFF their own personal servers, so now the community hosts their own so you can still play. Without this, you cannot play multiplayer anymore.

Two questions.

1. How hard is it to use?

2. Can I FINALLY host my own, private LAN game for testing mods?

It is extremely simplistic, with only 3 real steps which are labeled on the programs interface.

The Freelancer Global Server Hotfix GUI allows the user to easily modify their Freelancer.INI game files to connect to the new community-driven Global Server.
