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.

Post detailing 88 Flak 1.27 RC129's release, with a full list of changes. RC129 will be the last 88 Flak 1.27 beta before full release.

Posted by on

Well folks, here it is. The last 1.27 beta, after nearly 3 years since the release of 1.26 (October 23, 2006). Since so much has happened with the project since 1.26, the full distributed release will probably be labeled 88 Flak 2.0.

Additionally, HazardFN has set up a new dedicated server, which supports up to 60 player slots. This server will be automatically loaded into the server list if you launch 88 Flak via the provided freelancer.bat file. The server is fully ready to rock, and everything you need can be found here: Main Server Page

Among other things, key features include refinements to the Multiplayer Scripting system, many balance adjustments, a new post-process shader written by Honken (work in progress), and nearly 20 new AI Bots to fight (see the Starport topic here). Here are some quick shots of RC129 in action:

You can download RC129 here in the 1.27 Beta Topic. A full, detailed changelog may be found there as well.

Thanks for all the support folks, and see you in space!
