Hello there!

I will do a quick introduction, as I am generally not that much into forums, and don't really like to type 1 full page. ^^

So here I am, with the name of Junkozane. If I remember correctly, I chose it in early 2012, as I was searching a name to make a character on Aion.

I am actually 23 years old, and from France.
I rarely play Freelancer, played a few times the single player, and mostly stopped playing in multiplayer, as all of my friends stop playing it.

I never got any legit copy of the game before. I started playing on the demo, that only give access to the New York system, with the french version of PC Games magazine, that was giving free games and demos. I don't even remember the year, it was between the release of the game and 2006 maybe. I still have the magazine and the CD somewhere, as I love to keep everything lol.
Then, a few years later, I did download the game (Totally legally for sure!) on some direct download or torrent websites and brought some friends on it.
I played on Hamburg City and an other server I completely forgot the name. My name was in red, I guess because of the non legit copy and as I was using mods/patches to put the game in 1920x1080

I drove 2x2hours a few days ago to buy legit copy of freelancer, that is still new sealed. This one will stay like that and I will need to buy a used version to install a legit copy. As well, I will certainly try to get an english version, as unfortunately, Freelancer only has 1 language per CD.

So here is my all brand new CD rom from the hits collection:

So yeah, even If I haven't played Freelancer that much, I am still looking to play on it sometimes, but as all my french friends stopped playing it, it became a bit annoying for me to play alone on it.

As I loveeee Stargate, there was a french server a few years ago that was called Stargate Infini, with Stargate ships and systems, but unfortunately, that was a RolePlay server, and it was needed to create a forum account and participate actively to the RolePlay, to be able to play, so I didn't join it.

For me, Freelancer is simple, easy to use, everything that makes a great game. I am waiting for Star Citizen, and hope it will be a great game that is not too hard to use and understand.
Today I am checking "Avorion", which looks pretty nice, even some parts of ships and the atmosphere makes me remember of Freelancer on the main menu.
Trying to test it without the 2 hours refund system of Steam, as I don't find it good, because it looks like "hey, I just bought your game, now testing it, ok it's shiet, bye I am asking for a refund".
Where are the good old demos?! The good old non legit copy is better to try and then decide to buy the game if we like it!


Otherwise, I do play a lot of other games, having too much games that sometimes I don't even know what to play! There is one that I always come back, just like for Freelancer, it is called "Hidden & Dangerous 2". I did spend a few years on it and trying to save some websites of it too.
With H&D2, I did realize that too many websites are lost and forgotten, and then die because no one can manage them anymore or because it does cost too much. I hate seeing that and I try to save most things I can.

By the way, don't forget to vote for Freelancer on GOG so it could be sold again!

Well, took more lines than I expected, even surprised myself lol.

So I hope you do know me a bit more now. ^^

Junkozane.

Hello. Nice to see you managed to get a copy

Amazon.co.uk still sells it btw, and so does Amazon.fr (lol, that 'german import' version for €76,99)

Welcome, we're a few French guys here

I totally agree with you : where are the demos wich are helpful to decide if its worth it or not. Times have changed. Some games still include a demo version like Shadow Tactics Blades of the Shogun for example.

Yeah, missing all these old demos :/

At least I found Freelancer for 6.90€ in a shop, there were 2 of them to be sold!

The seller even said: "Oh, finally someone who know that game!
Everytime someone don't know what to buy, I always tell them that's a good game, but as they don't know it, they always refuse."

And I can play it on my 30kg Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 2070sb CRT screen!
