Here are some tools, plugins, information files and mods for the Microsoft/Digital Anvil game Freelancer.
Patch v1.20 (3.1M). Expands on the work of Louva-Deus
(SDK/QuickFix) and Buck Danny (Unofficial FL
SP patch), providing many additional improvements and some new
features (additional controls, including rolling and vertical strafing
(warning: may be considered cheating on some servers); actual
Stats displays for Powerplants, Engines, Scanners, Tractor Beams and Armor;
widescreen support). All the information given below is based on this, so if
you're not using it, some names and loot might be different. The
sources (674k; FRC) I
created are also available.
JFLP.DLL v1.21 (7k). Just the DLL (and its
source) if you only want the new features.
JFLP v1.00. Version 1.20 was a little rushed, so here's the earlier version just in case. Unfortunately, there's a bug preventing completion of Mission 9. Add “Act_LockDock = Player, Ku07_to_Ku06_hole, unlock” after “Cnd_CommComplete = DX_M09_0620_HAKKERA” (line 1841) to DATA\MISSIONS\M09\m09.ini to fix it (then load the latest save).

|A new game (rename to Restart.fl to actually use as “New Game”) without the story missions and your reputation completely neutral with everyone. Choose the same version as Freelancer. (SP from MP does the same thing, except for the reputation.)|
