Freelancer runs quite happily on W10, i've been using that for years without issues. There are are a few things to cheer up the old game, see above link, but i can guarantee you don't need an old system to run the old girl.

A dynamic IP is only dynamic when it changes, which it doesn't normally as long as the modem is always on. I've run servers for years with a dynamic IP, never had issues

Seeing as nobody can read black text on a dark blue background, no idea what you have written there.

As to the series itself, got past episode two this morning. It's a slow burn series, where the story gently unfolds, characters get introduced, tension builds. I really want something to happen in the third episode, bearing in mind there are only ten in total.

It promises a lot, and i hope to hell it delivers. It's doing well up to now, hope it continues

It's there but difficult to find. Baz needs to turn into an flmod file as well to make installation easier. Up to him at the end of the day.

Looks amazing, bear in mind New Berlin is a dark system anyway

Putting it into flmod format is easy.

Create a folder called Freelancer_NQ or whatever you want to call it.

Put the mod inside this folder. By that i mean the Data, Exe and all the mod related files.

I used Winrar to zip this up using the .zip extension which you can choose when archiving a file

When this is done you end up with a zip file called Freelancer_NQ.zip

Next add this to the end of your zip file, .flmod so it looks like this

Freelancer _NQ.zip.flmod

The program will ask you if you want to change it to this format, click yes. You should now have a file with the FLMM logo. Double click on this file and it will self install into mod manager. Activate it and off you go.

Don't worry about the credit, this is simple stuff. I've tested this obviously, and loads into FLMM without issues. Not recommended for use with FLMM 1.5. Works fine with earlier versions

Link would be nice, nvm, found it.

I downloaded the mod. Firstly there there are 5 checsum errors when you use winrar to unzip the file.

Secondly, there is absolutely no reason why this mod can't be turned into an flmod file. So easy to do as i've already done it. That being said, those checksum errors need looking into. Any chance you could download the mod yourself and see the errors when you try to unzip it?

This is what i get every time i try to unzip it.

\Mods\Freelancer_NQ.rar: Checksum error in Freelancer_NQ\DATA\MOVIES\fl_intro.wmv. The file is corrupt
\Mods\Freelancer_NQ.rar: Checksum error in Freelancer_NQ\DATA\AUDIO\rvp131.utf. The file is corrupt
\Mods\Freelancer_NQ.rar: Checksum error in Freelancer_NQ\DATA\AUDIO\rvp546.utf. The file is corrupt
\Mods\Freelancer_NQ.rar: Checksum error in Freelancer_NQ\DATA\AUDIO\MUSIC\music_bar_li02.wav. The file is corrupt
f\Mods\Freelancer_NQ.rar: Checksum error in Freelancer_NQ\DATA\AUDIO\MUSIC\music_reveal_enemy_pos.wav. The file is corrupt

Here's a suggestion. Put it into FLMOD format, takes seconds. Much easier to deal with than having to unzip it, move it here and there etc.

I suggest you contact Nightstalker, but i can tell you his expert answer. They used to run two servers of which i believe only one now runs the mod expertly. A guy called Zeus runs the US server, he's also an expert.

He says he's running a mod where level isn't important, the issue surely is with either the mod or mod manager. He certainly won't need to finish single player if he has a mod that takes care of the level requirement

Try this. IT was originally done by Lancer Solarus back in the day, not tried it myself but everything you need to run it apparently is there

You don't. Crazy hosts the global list server. When that goes down, you can't see any server in the multiplayer list of FL. You can still direct connect, but that's not the point. Crazy is our go to guy for issues related to server listings, and his work is very much appreciated by players and hosts alike.
