Does anyone get the problem that it crashes when you try to launch from manhatten it starts loading then all of a sudden it closes and says it's crashed

Odd, they must have taken the link to the extractor down. I got mine from this place itself.

Where is your tutorial at? I have been looking for it. Is this the thread where it is? If it's the one on the first page, I have tried it, but everytime I launch from Manhattan, CTD.

CptKazo: Can I get more information about your docking techinique?

Troop5: Can I get you to send me the files you use?

If you guys want the files, email me. Thats the easiest way to do things since i sometimes miss these file requests.

There is a system guide around here that tells you what code goes where.

I can't believe you haven't found it...

Try looking in this sticky thread,

Compilation of ALL IDS names, Mod Info, Tutorials, INI explination -- Read first!

if you can't find that then you need alot more help then we can give has all the information you need.

To make your own name and ships is NOT an easy process and you need to modify about 6 files plus some DLL to make your own names and ships.

I would stick to modifying existing ones until you get a bit more advanced friend.

I installed the Osiris mod and checked it like 5 times. In single it is awesome.
in multi, though, as soon as I buy a ship and trying to leave the planet - my connection is lost. I have a suspision that it crashes the server, but I am not sure. After this I cannot connect to the same server for quite a while. Usually, I have to restart freelancer and possibly the computer.
I have tried modifying INI manually and automatically using Mod Manager.
I have also tried different servers. But the result is always the same.

Any ideas?

The server must be running the exact same mod just like any other game or things start crashing. Try joining a Day of Defeat game using the Counter Strike mod and see what happens(of course you can't because it doesn't show up, but for a good reason)

Do you know what you are talking about in case of a battleship or you are just generalizing?
In case of a latter, than, no, FReelancer is different from HL and any other game and you CAN do a lot of stuff on the client.

Post Wed Apr 02, 2003 7:44 pm

...the admin of the server you tried was not amused, his server crashed atm you launched. Imho the game handles players on planets only client-side, atm you launch your client sends the info about your ship/cargo etc to the server (this makes sense since the planet/base thingy has no player interaction). So when you try to use a mod which is not running on the server and buy something the server does not know (e.g. a battleship or cruiser or commodities or weapons), both the server and the client will crash....

so: Don't do this!

What exactly do you mean? How it works in the ini's or in the game?

Post Thu Apr 03, 2003 12:20 pm

Great mod! I loved piloting the Osiris and swatting enemies with its cannons
However, I'm stuck...=P

I can't dock with the looks like two battleships crashing together =P
What can I do to solve this problem?
