Mit FRAPS kann man auch Screenshots machen und um nicht jede Ecke anfliegen zu müssen, kann man über Single-Player Command Console sich die ganze Karte anzeigen lassen.

Just install the game via setup from CD or ISO if you have one.
Then patch to 1.1.

Afterwards apply the no-CD patch from this site and you are ready to start Freelancer.

During the first start of FLServer Windows 10 notifies you about a feature upgrade DirectPlay. This feature is needed for Freelancer to start.

I installed Freelancer on 3 machines running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

Thank you all!

I whitelisted the d3d8.dll and now I have 60 fps Vsync on.

Amazing. Freelancer is working again!

I tried using the D3Dconverter but for some reason Norton Internet Security is deleting the d3d8.dll für WS.Reputation 1 virus all the time.
Where can I download this dll safely?

So I tried installing Freelancer on a fresh installed (not upgraded) Win10 64-bit version. Installation and patching went OK, but after starting the game in Fullscreen 1600x1200x32 resolution and using Fraps to determine fps it was the same scene 180+ frames per second.

This PC has Nvidia 740 passive graphics card.

My other 2 PCs are identical and have Core i7-6700K and GTX 980 Ti cards. Both upgraded to Win 10 64-bit.

I think it must have something to do with the DirectPlay feature which is required to run Freelancer.

@Helloween:
My comments about the VSync were not meant in any way to offend people who turn this feature off. I'm used to gaming with VSync ON and therefore I immediately notice screen tearing.

Does anybody have a working full screen mode with VSync ON?

So I tried Borderless Gaming.
The aspect ratio is stretched to both sides and the mouse pointer is a bit jumpy in game. But the gameplay is a lot better.

I don't understand how anybody could play above 60hz due to the erratic display behaviour. I mean just unlock the frames in Freelancer and turn circles and you can see instantly how irregular the frame rate is.

I will try to install Freelancer on a second Win 10 machine which has an GT 740 nvidia passive card. This PC has a fresh install of Windows 10.
The one PC I tried Freelancer on earlier just has the Windows 10 Upgrade without installing all apps.

Thank you for all this input to my concern. It's remarkable how alive the community is, even after all those years since the release of the game.

I will try the border-less windowed solution and will give a feedback.

I'm still trying to figure out what causes this VSync permanent off, but so far I haven't had any success.

@FriendlyFire: What's your hardware config? Do you play vanilla patched 1.1 version, too? I have Win10 Build 1511.

Thank you for the file!

It limits the frame rate to 58 fps but the gameplay stutters heavily. The main menu is unlocked at 180 fps and gameplay locked to about 58 - 59 fps (measured with fraps).

I don't think it can be solved by editing the engine files.

I wonder if anybody here can play the game with Win10 Pro 64bit with 60fps and VSync on.

So I tried gaming on my LAN server and the game stutters as hell due to the FPS peaks.

Can you please tell me how to edit those lines to have ingame 60 fps.
Do I have to do it on my server PC too? Is the editing possible with NotePad++?

What I really want to do is to enable VSync in the driver and not limiting the ingame engine to 60 fps. I think this bug must be connected with the new Window Desktop Manager of Windows 10.

Freelancer seems to run on the desktop somehow emulated because the driver settings for VSync are ignored all the way.

Does anybody else have these problems with VSync permanently off and Win10 running?

I thank you for the codes but I don't want to mess around with the code and first want to try to fix it in the driver.

During Win7 days I used DXTweaker to force VSync ON and Triple Buffer.

When starting Freelancer windowed via -w switch it runs 60 fps locked, but it is not playable because the mouse pointer is not locked to the borders.

Hello,

I recently upgraded to Win10 64Bit Pro and tried running Freelancer vanilla with patch 1.1 installed.

The game starts fine and is playable. Before starting it Win10 needed to install the "DirectPlay" feature.

The only problem is in Full Screen mode the VSync is off the I get about 180 fps which causes a not fluent gameplay due to huge fps spikes.

I tried to lock VSync to ON via NVidia drivers for my GTX 980 Ti, but the game ignores all VSync related settings.

I only get 60fps when starting the game windowed via the -w command switch.

How do I lock the FPS to 60fps in full screen mode?

After installing Win7-64Bit once again the problem is gone.
Thank you for your Input on this. Now the world is OK again with Freelancer installed again to bridge the wait for the BDSSE StarCitizen.

Thank you for the answers.

That's also my approach to installing games and software.
I always have a backup done of my SSD and then I try to
install software and games.

In a few days I will have assembled my new PC and will try
to install the patch on it again.

The notebook I used for the server had the same settings
regarding the language, region settings, etc.

Doesn't there exist some patches from Adoxa that are used
for patching Freelancer? Those must be too just extracting
files and patching the Freelancer Folder just by overwriting?

In my case I'm searching for a workaround tf the patching
problem will repeat. Unfortunately FLServer does not show
a changed version when patched,

Freelancer Patch 1.1 problem

Hello,

lately I've been trying installing the patch 1.1 on my pc
Win7-64bit.

I installed Freelancer in server mode only and after
starting applying the patch I get an error message:

Setup was unable to find (or could not read) the language
specific setup resource dll, unable to continue.
Please reboot and try again." error

I installed the server to my notebook which has Win7-64bit
too and there were no problems.

Did anyone else come across this problem?

Furthermore I found out, that the patch is just an archive,
which can opened with WinRAR. I just copied those
files into my Freelancer folder, but after this action
I can't uninstall the game anymore.
