No disc unofficial patch?

I made sure to glance over the downloads page, and tried running a search on the topic, but apparently the search includes absolutely everything with disc in it, e.g discover, discuss, etc. so I didn't look over every thread closely. Anyway, there's some background for why I'm posting this, and to elaborate on the question a bit...

Has anyone made an unofficial no disc patch for Freelancer yet? I've the disc, and I've bought the game, so I know I could probably pirate the game without feeling too bad about it, however I was curious if there was a way to modify the existing installation to run without it. Not to mention, for such a dedicated community, it only makes sense that someone would do so. Preservation of information via conversion of all the data to a purely digital medium and perpetuation through the dedication and devotion of some hardcore fans mirroring it, and all that.

I'm rambling now, but do any of you know of any modifications to the .ini or anything to make it run without the physical medium that ties it down? Much appreciated if you respond, and even more so if your response includes any kind of yes/no/maybe so.

The no-cd is common knowledge by now, however it was never officially put up here due to the possible legal implications. Better safe than sorry, they say.

Most mods do however bundle the no-cd, so it's already circulating around very much. I guess we might as well have it directly available, so I've made one available here. Should be the clean, unedited version but if somebody has a copy I'd be thankful if they could run a comparison (mostly because I might've changed something to it, was laying in my FL directory).

Ah, I still haven't completely played through vanilla Freelancer, so I haven't messed around with many mods, otherwise I (hopefully) would have come across that. Thanks for the quick response and putting it up there, downloaded it, copied it into the right folder, ran like a charm.
