  • ok i understand. i was just asking. thanks for the answers


    By the way, A lot of new or remodeling ships in CF have a great look and are so playable in dogfights.

  • Sorry OP if it's stays 1.81 but your download at swat has only this, still 1.81 .... never founded a download with 1.82 :(



    And yes you have reach 1.82 working at 1.9 i know, I'm here sinds mod 1.3 and downloaded 3, 5, 6, 7 and 8.1 but I cannot YET play 1.82


    I have still the same problem with installing your new mod on my brand new computer !



    I have a ACER i7 860 with Win7 sinds 2 weeks and I'm trying to play Crossfire sinds my laptop did refuse duty !



    I read all i founded on the forum and at google to find a solution to my problem, tried a dozen times again changing all kind of stuff but nothing is working ...



    1. I have a new computer with a fresh install of FL ( so no saves to delete or so ! )


    2. i made a fresh download from Swat of the FMM


    3. i downloaded msinet.ocx from internet, copy it in system 32


    4. i installed it with cmd running as administrator, then copy it in syswow64


    5. i downloaded crossfire 1.81 ( never saw 1.82 ! ) at swat


    6. i runned crossfire mod installating automatiquely with FMM ( with several Troyan horse alert from Mc Afee ).


    7. going in FMM to load crossfire mod and then ..... getting the same problem with msinet.ocx



    I know, lots of people has the same problem and they managed to get it working, but not always knowing how they succeded ....



    dunno where it got wrong, i hope some1 will help me out .... after all these tries i did, i desesperate to play crossfire anymore, my nerfs are letting me down ....

  • Hi NewPol,


    Your problem is maybe bcos you still have corrupted downloaded install file (AV ? Firewall ?) . I remember one from our member who tried almost all and nothing help. He try at last desperately last try and downloaded again mod (third download if I remember good) and then game ran (with the same install steps as before).


    I advice you shut down your AV for whole download/install procedure.

  • for meanwhile 3 weeks CF1.81 can not be downloaded anymore
    it got replaced with CF1.82

  • OK DONE, finaly !



    Thanks a lot Michael and Martin ! :thumbsup:



    There is indeed a little confusion about 1.81 and 1.82


    The only link i got was : http://www.crossfire.swat-portal.com/


    So following your suggestions i got a fresh crossfire and FMM dowload at "moddb" and after crossing my fingers i did the all procedure again ( ! ) ...... and it worked. :thumbup:



    I tested it immediately and found my NewPol char there where I left it but i did 'nt get further ... it' late now .... i'm exausted but happy to seen you soon in game ! 8o



    ps: indeed no more actions from Mc Afee in this version, great work OP !
