  • Greeting's from old pilot,Freelancer's.I have problem with activation of mod 2.0 on win7.First of all,i can't download full mod 2.79 GB.Only 2.59GB,unzipped 2.60,maybe becouse of this,but no clue ho to dl full size.I have even disabled avirus.Created clean install of FL,but can't activate mod in mod manager,around 3/4 of slider it stuck with various error message's,can't activate sound files,planet etc.I have followed extended install guide for 2.0 client but no luck.I don't have original FL game,but i was able to activate and play every mod with,including older Crossfire mods.I like to play again in CF universe,please help me if someone had something similar.Sry for my English,have nice day all!!

  • Hello daDraga ,


    I have a working zip of the mod as it is stored in the FLMM, if you think that you can't download the full mod. Let me know if you feel like downloading and copying it to the /mod folder of the FLMM.

    But are you sure that the CF2 installed correctly all the components? There are a few windows components needed like vcruntimes and .net.


    Have a great day,


    Dan

  • daDraga , let me know if you want to download my working mod folder into your FLMM and then try to activate. Good luck!

  • if it does not download correctly then this is most certainly the problem


    try using a download manager or a different browser

  • It is the default path for the unmodded game. But that does not mean that it is a good idea to put a mod in there.

    Windows applies specific user rights to the program files folder which can interfere with mod activations.

  • Ty SWAT_OP-R8R ,i will try that way.I was away from Freelancer 3 years,or more,so that's the main reason for this monkey business :(

    Just figured out that i cant remove write protection from Data.Exe and Dlls. When I uncheck the checkbox, a progress bar runs threw but everything stays unchanged.

  • yeah....

  • You gotta uninstall everything Freelancer related and clean registries too before trying to install back - I had to do the same after my first install failed due to my AV.


    After that, reboot.

    Then with admin rights:

    1. Install FL - preferably on other path than the default program files

    1.a Don't disable your AV, just add the FL folder to AV's exclusions

    2. Reboot - this will most likely be requested by FL installer when finished

    3. If you suspect that downloading the zip in browser is causing the incomplete archive, then run this in powershell to get you the full zip:


    Code
    1. Invoke-WebRequest -OutFile crossfire.zip https://swat-portal.com/forum/filebase/download/222/

    ** 3.1 You'll find the file in c:\users\your_user_name\crossfire.zip


    4. Install FLMM that comes with Crossfire archive, and then run the Crossfire setup.

  • Heya.

    Im back ingame since yesterday. Think some ppl still know me? :)


    Yesterday i installed new too. And worked fine with me.

    THe Reason i play only Crossfire i installed the MOD directly to the FL-Folder.

    i unpacked the MOD directly to the FL-install Dir.


    Have a nice day and good luck.


    C ya in Space!


    Best regards

    Wata ;-)

  • i unpacked the MOD directly to the FL-install Dir.

    Which is something i would not advice to do.

    Probably just a matter of hours before you get kicked from the server.

    Yes... dont work. Reinstalled all and activated via FLMM. Activate MOD took much time because there is so much many amd great things. :-)


    @ daDraga: If i readed right u have not downloaded the MOD complete? If that is correct u must download again untill you downloaded all.
