The big problem here was that the FLserver.exe from Freeworlds 18.XX, and 1.66 was not based on the 1.1 update patch for Freelancer.

Take the flserver.exe from the upgrade and use reshack to change the version number to match your mod.

Then it is a matter of editing the dacomsvr.ini to load the FLHook.dll.

Watch your spelling and capitalization!

Thanks much. That is where I found my files.

I guess I just have to jump in and start editing ini files.

Some of the poblems I've found:

shield on cmp file missing from shiparch
Tractor bay doors in shiparch but missing from cmp
Infanite Power Generator causes crashes,...sometimes

None of the "jedi" ships are listed in the mshipprops.ini
(Jedi are the Vongs pirmary enemy)

I'm sure there are more.

I'm still trying to acquire the orriginal models of the Vong ships (created by eviljedi from what I understand), and barring that will need someone more proficient than I to convert them to Freelancer/Freeworlds.
If you have these models, or are able to convert from ALA format to CMP format, or if you know how I can contact eviljedi, please let me know.
Thanks for the help

Well thats something,

I just don't think its feasible for a single person to start from scratch on a TC mod, without taking years and years to put something out. I'm also pretty sure that I don't have all the skills necessary to do so.

But my current problem is deffinately in the new ships. Existing ships dont cause the crashes that I'm experienceing.

Even the old coralskipper (wich was an admin ship that I trimmed back down to 5000 hit points instead of 50000) works without crashes. And 98% of the crashes I experience are client side. (at least till I start messin arround with things LOL)

I'm pretty sure that I'm doing something wrong with the hardpoints, but I just can't figure out what.

Guess I should go back and start scouring the ship tutorials.

Anyway, I appreciate the advice, even the advice that I realy don't want to take LOL.

I've known about the extensive list of errors produced by ALL TC mods, But belive it or not, the 18.2f version is stable.

And I may have found my ship errors: All the weapons were using FIXED hp's instead of REVOLUTE hp's.

I'm in the process of changing this and will let you know if this fixes the problem. (I'm suspecting that this was a big issue).

Let you know later.

I've considered on many occasions, starting over, however I don't think that I have the necessary skills to pull the whole thing off. There are just to many aspects of modding for one person to cover.

If I remember correctly, 1.66 took over a year with a team of 20 or so, pluss beta testers, (That was what I did for the project, just a beta.)

After more experimentataion last night, I'm convinced that the main problem is in the ships, so I'll be starting over with them, (that means reimporting them from z3r0x's Empire at War mod since I can't get ahold of EvilleJedi, and Tessius is ignoreing me. They are the only two that I know of that have the orriginal files)

I ran some tests last night with the coralskipper, (the one that was already in the mod.) I ran missions for 1/2 an hour with no crashes or errors.

Then I added the missing hard points, That fixed the occasional CTD on launch, but missions are still 50%.
The launch CTD was being caused by using the freighter shields. I replaced them with fighter shields and now you can launch with no issues, (unless you have a mission LOL)

I'm stubborn, I'll find the error, or rather, I'll get it fixed. I'll reimport the ships this weekend, and wouldn't be to supprised to find that afterwards the error is gone. (I also won't be supprised if the error remains, or if its replaced with a new one.)

I will let you know how it goes. Thanks for the help and ideas.

Thanks for the Tips,

I'll be working on the ships this weekend and I'll check all this out. I also have a line out to Sushi since he works with the same base TC mod, he may have some ideas as well.

Once I isolate the problem (if I can, sometimes they remain unfound even after the problem is fixed) I will update the thread with the results.

Thanks so much.

These are all established equipment items that have been throughly tested.

Blue135 is an engine with a blue contrail.

shield_link = cv_fighter6_shield01, HpMount, HpShield01
hp_type = hp_freighter_shield_special_4, HpShield01
hp_type = hp_freighter_shield_special_3, HpShield01
hp_type = hp_freighter_shield_special_2, HpShield01
hp_type = hp_freighter_shield_special_1, HpShield01

These are the shield entries, also throughly tested.

I'm sure its in the custom ships somewhere. I'm just not sure if its in the code or in the models (cmp/mat/sur).

No, its definately the ships. I made it so one of the established ships was sold in the new system, and I did missions for over an hour with no bugs. I bought the custom ship and flew it to a establised system that I was friendly with and tried to take a mission and it CTD upon entry in space. And on occasion, the custom ship will CTD when launching from base/station even without a mission (10% or so).

I've been through the shiparch, copying everything except the cmp and mat link with the same effect so I don't think its there. I've changed the equipment arround and it didn't help so I'm to the point where I think its in the CMP/MAT/SUR files somewhere.

If any other clips or files are needed to assess the problem, I'd be happy to provide them.



Here is the CMP:

The MAT:

I have tried to leave a few msgs here and there for EvilleJedi, asking if the orriginals are available, as the ones I've got have been converted many times to make it to Freeworlds, but as of yet I have not recieved a responce. I'm not sure if the multiple conversions could have been corrupted or degraded after all that or if its just a lack of modding experience on my part, or a missed step/wrong step on my part during conversion. Honestly, I have no idea.

Any advice or help is appreciated
