Mod Installation instructions

1. Do a 'clean' installation of Freelancer

2. Start the vanilla game, and start a new single player game, quit back out as soon as possible

3. Apply the mod:
a. Using Freelancer Mod Manager (FLMM)
b. Manually - remove the flmod extension from the mod file and unzip into your FL install folder overwriting existing files. You will also need to remove the AutoSave.fl and Restart.FL files from the save game folder. On Windows XP this is My Documents\My Games\Freelancer\Accts\SinglePlayer, on Windows Vista/7/8 it is\Documents\My Games\Accts\SinglePlayer

4. To set a high resolution open the PerfOptions.ini file which can be found
a. on Windows XP - My Documents\My Games\Freelancer
b. on Windows Vista/7/8 - \Documents\My Games\Freelancer
Open the file using notepad, scroll down to the [Display] section and change as the example below - I have mine set to 1920x1080 resolution, 32bit color & depth - substitute your own settings here - I may write a little companion app to do this kind of stuff at some point - or there may well be some already written - check out The-starport.net downloads section.

[Display]
size = 1920, 1080
color_bpp = 32
depth_bpp = 32

5. Start Freelancer and the MOD should be properly applied
