Freelancer Hardware Update


The Freelancer Hardware Update package contains an updated set of video card display DeviceIDs. The list of supported hardware grows as more hardware is submitted by players like you. If you are having trouble with the game because of having a video card made after the year 2000 then try this out.

Extract this package to Freelancer's EXE folder to update your hardware support (By default, the path is C:\Program Files\Microsoft games\Freelancer\EXE).

 Re: Freelancer Hardware Update
I have a windows 7 computer with a radeon mobility x200 card. The hardware patch didn't work, is there anything else I can do?

 Re: Freelancer Hardware Update
just want to say, i didnt download or install this patch/mod and i have full hardware support. I'm running an acer aspire one d270 with the intel atom n2600 cpu and intel gma 3600 gpu.

P.S. i love this game, doesnt get any better than this.
