Post news RSS Life, Facebook, and the meaning of Everything

Yes, we are on Facebook. Why? Because Moddb.com does not allow me to easily add small blurps of news; it forces me to write an entire book about it. I encourage everyone to take advantage of the Facebook service, here's how.

We are on Facebook
Yes, we are on Facebook. Why? Because Moddb.com does not allow me to easily add small blurps of news; it forces me to write an entire book about it. I encourage everyone to take advantage of the Facebook service, here's how.

Why do I want to be a Fan on Facebook?
It provides the user with a service and me with a service. Users can get updates on the bleeding edge in OLG + Greenduck development, and comment on it in an orderly fashion!

In addition, small blurbs like how I just yesterday cracked the Freelancer saved game code (how the name= tag in the FL save is encoded). That is on Facebook.

Dim freelancerAlphabet As String() = {"0061", "0062", "0063", "0064", "0065", "0066", _
                                                 "0067", "0068", "0069", "006a", "006b", "006c", _
                                                 "006d", "006e", "006f", "0070", "0071", "0072", _
                                                 "0073", "0074", "0075", "0076", "0077", "0078", _
                                                 "0079", "007a"} 'a-z 
        Dim freelancerSymbols As String() = {"002b", "002d", "005f", "002e", "003d"} '+-_.= 002b 002d 005f 002e 003d
        Dim freelancerNum As String() = {"0030", "0031", "0032", "0033", "0034", "0035", "0036", _
                                                 "0037", "0038", "0039"} 'And finally numbers 0-9 0030 0031 0032 0033 0034 0035 0036 0037 0038 0039

The above piece of code, you never would have known about unless you were on Facebook. It's the hexadecimal codes Freelancer uses to encode character names. Normally, if it wasn't for this article telling you to track us on Facebook, you would not know about this!

Show me BENEFITS
The user is who gets the benefits in the end. By seeing features and advancements as I create them, you can give me feedback before the feature hits the download! That means that a crappy feature, like "Starfliers are now invulnurable if they are carrying a slingshot missile" will not make it in, because you all hate it.

I'm convinced, what do I do?
Go to Facebook.com and either create an account or log into your existing one.

Then, go to this URL ( Facebook.com ) and find the "become a fan" button.


Then you will have access to exclusive updates that will not be mirrored on Moddb.com because of the time it takes to write the article and get it approved.

Thank you
Thank you for registering with the OLG fan page; you are helping me help you. So far the feedback on OLG A4 has been very positive. For example, I have heard that the mod is more challenging than vanilla Freelancer, and a lot of fun. And the GreenDuck server extension has been acclaimed as "something that should have been done 3-4 years ago".
