Just my 2 cents:

1. If unmodded Freelancer runs fine, then everything went to hell once modded, it's the mod.

2. The XML parser is there to parse the internal XML format that Freelancer uses to display formatted text. It effects unmodded Freelancer as well, and a mod cannot change how Freelancer program handles text display.

3. Based on my experience (which came from activate and deactivating my own (abandoned) mod for no less than 5,000 times), the error "Error: problem deactivating ..." often means that you need to reinstall the game from fresh (Make sure Freelancer is deleted from the "Program Files" without a single file left). Normally, I backup the fully installed&patched game before open FLMM so I can restore it quickly.

4. In my memory, FLMM is kind messy. You should only install one on your computer, not multiple, and you don't want to active multiple mods at same time. Also, you have to manually deactivate everything on it before you uninstall FLMM.

To be honest, not many people in the sector actually saw the artifact, at least not up close. So even if it's not accurate, who knows.

As far as I know, folks on Freeport-9 will buy anything that grows. And, guess what, I just happen to know the location of the very station. It's located in a beautiful star system in the outer ring, where treasure and opportunity awaits.

I would love to continue to sharing my knowledge ... for a small fee of $10,000,000 credits, of course. You'll earn it back soon enough. Interested?

So... I've figured out how to do it:

1. Before login, you click the Forgot Password link and ask the website to send you a email
2. Click the link in the email the website has sent to you
3. The website will send you another email, containing a newly generated password of your account
4. Login with that new password, go to the Change Password page, and put the generated password into the "Current Password" box, and enter your own new password in the "New Password" and "Verify Password" box.

It worked for me, maybe it will work for the others.

I guess the root cause of this problem is somebody misused `strtolower` or `strtoupper`. My old password contains an uppercased letter, it probably got `strtolower`ed by the "Change Password" page and thus become mismatched with the real one.

Well, I sure hope they can do an upgrade or switch, because the XOOPS caused a real Oops this time LOL.

Plus, to be honest, this program was and still is a pain in the a-area anyways.

On the second thought, maybe try something like Mastodon, it's like a social network like Twitter you can host on your own server.

Hi Ruppetthemuppet,

I tried Chrome, but the problem seems don't want to go. I guess there is a problem in the server code.

If the staff is considering to switch to newer server program, from what I've heard, the cool kids now days uses Discourse, you can pair it with a blog to publish articles (or not, post article as a forum post seems work well)

Don't know what to do with the downloads though.

Hello there,

So I just logged back and thought maybe I should btw change the password of my account after this long time.

However, the Change Password page, which is located at https://the-starport.net/modules/profile/changepass.php doesn't seems to recognize my old password and thus keep rejecting the new one.

I mean, I just re-logged in to verify that the password I used in the "Current Password" field is correct, so I don't think it was me who messed it up.

Could somebody check the code for a bit to see if there is anything fishy and buggy in there? And fix it while you at it? Please.

Thanks!

The subreddit seems even more dead than we are, about a post a month.

RSI of course has way more traffic, but Roberts has been pretty clear about him largely not caring about Freelancer and Starlancer. Wing Commander is his pet series, the rest can rot. It certainly doesn't make me feel particularly welcome, and I don't think posting about TSP there would help us much anyway (not to mention it'd probably be removed).


Well, I don't agree with that.

The company who import EVE into China also build up a *Official* community for CEVE as well.

In the mean time, in China, there is another community build by player call EVE-China-Fans site (or ECF), and which is way more popular than the *Official* one.

I think the key is: Be **Unique**

Maybe you guys can figure out how to make this community more adaptable with those Key games.

By adaptable I mean not only make something like skin theme (simple one), news source etc but also doing something like data sync so player can see their game data in this website. Don't know if that's possible through.

And also, don't bind yourself with one game

@HeIIoween

Maybe it's my bad English make you misunderstood my point ... It's always flickering so ....

There is no difference between IT-related and regular people, in fact, IT-related people is regular people too (I'm a human, what you are thinking there :-/ ) ...

I rather believe IT guy had higher UX requirement than others, because they use too many software. However ....


@FriendlyFire

I know that you want now.

Yes, I tried myBB. It's appears more function rich. But after I checked the code, I can't say it's a maintainable choice. So as phpBB. (It's procedure-oriented)

XenForo is not the good way, I rather pay for IPB or vBulletin.

I also tried the esoTalk, but now I think it's too light for this task. Vanilla forums has suck code style ...

Well, looks essentially I don't actually know what forum software is good, they all suck for me, just some light-weight applications less suck ...

Well, since this topic is come to my field (I'm a newbie web developer), I couldn't support you at this point.

Take look those Star counts (On GitHub), It's obvious vanilla forums gets more interest from people...

But I don't like either of it, I make my own one if I had to.

Yeah, I conform it feels little bit faster than the old server, but I think it's because Cloudflare node is changed ....

And, maybe .... enable SSL support that provided by Cloudflare? https://www.cloudflare.com/ssl

EDIT:
Yeah, the node is definitely changed .... to some where not belongs to Cloudflare.

AND:
The HTTPS page gives me a ObenVbN login....

Well, you guys obviously knowing much better than me about the back of this web site.

On the other hand....

I used to run a small Chinese comunity long before, which share same topic with spacesimcentral.com. And it's larger than spacesimcentral.com in amount of post & replies. (But quality is low I have to say)

We don't have staffs at that time, only moderators who also contribute contents like MODs and Tips. But most contents is contributed by users.

I'm not saying the community is healthy, but it shows that web site run by user generated content is workable (Technically, this web site is mostly UGC'ed too). So you may no need that many staffs you expected.

Of course, it will be a quality issue but I think it could be resolved by appropriate community management. (You have to discover it yourself)

Even you need to post news and keep track updates by yourselfs, it's just cost few hours every week. (Writing news is not rock science, not in this topic)

And ..... well, Xoops sucks. Article is difficult to categorize and read, download is not easy to use, only thing that relatively useable is the forum...
Lot of good web application come out those years: Wordpress is good one and not just a blog, and Forum application like VanillaForums, esoTalk, Discourse (SEO may sucks), Flarum (SEO sucks), every each one is far better than PHPBB.
Consider to move to another application if you want to change direction of this website maybe?

Source code? well, I don't think so ... as they said they lost it between servers.

Good point it, FL is not the end of this website, And make a game is more easier than old years (So there will(already) be a lot of it).

Don't limit your sight on web sites like spacesimcentral.com, it's just (no offense) a small one.

But the topic (Space and science fiction) is huge, and there will be a lot of chance in it.

So keep it up.

BTW: I don't know much about server, but seems VPS is more cheaper & flexible choice, maybe Linode or DigitalOcean is better than hosting & managing a physical server?
