@  Fenris_Wolf : (05 June 2018 - 03:13 PM) ya the globals been a real pain the last 8/9 months or so, edit the shortcut to your freelancer.exe, and add -sflserver.tekagis.ca:2302
@  McKooter : (05 June 2018 - 02:21 PM) Been good, i gotta figure out how to connect, i got the game, i have the mod... but i click and no global servers, no way to find the server. Ill admit its been 5 years since i have tried to connect...
@  Fenris_Wolf : (04 June 2018 - 09:33 PM) hey mck how you been?  :)
@  McKooter : (04 June 2018 - 02:57 PM) O_o hey guys
@  Fenris_Wolf : (29 May 2018 - 02:27 PM) The flserver doesnt run on the same line as the webserver. Since FL doesnt really run on linux so well its more of a home hosted connection, where our webserver is located in a datacenter on a fast line. Ellis was probably using his bandwidth for something else last night
@  Nameless : (29 May 2018 - 05:27 AM) Hmmm...  Average ping from the game server of ~2500 for several hours.  The websites is ~70.
@  Nameless : (26 May 2018 - 04:29 PM) I don't mind doing reps per se.  It's trying to get white or green with ALL of them at one time.  Right now my main character, Nameless, is white to all but Boskos, Admins and the Bundschuh.  It just took 300+ hours online to figure out who to kill, where to bribe, and which supply depots to destroy when.  Best two depots are the BH in Manchester and Shikoku, and the Liberty cops at Manhattan.  Fixes most things right up.   :P
@  Fenris_Wolf : (24 May 2018 - 02:41 PM) I aways hated doing reps  <_<
@  Nameless : (24 May 2018 - 07:38 AM) Fen, I hate mazes and fixing reps with so dang many factions.  Let's see if I can get neutral with everyone but the Boskos and Admins.  And figure out how to blow up mazes!   :rolleyes:
@  Nameless : (23 May 2018 - 12:00 AM) Yup, -sflserver.tekagis.ca  or 69.165.222.85. On it right now.

So I've compiled a new patch, this is not the massive long awaited update, but some minor fixes that have been long overdue, and includes a auto updater so we can roll out future fixes and changes easier.

 

Please note this is NOT a full version, and should be activated over top of v5.48.3.
The reason this is numbered 5.49.0 instead of 5.48.4 is to insure all connecting players have upgraded.

 

A auto-updater is included in the EXE folder (TekagisUpdater.exe), and from now on this should be run instead of Freelancer.exe.  It will launch FL automatically after  checking for updates.

By editting TekagisUpdater.conf you can set it to launch FL in windowed or fullscreen mode, or to not start FL at all.

 

We'll try to restrict future patches til the daily server reset at 11:00pm pst (7:00am GMT) so as long as you run the updater at least once after that time you should be good for the day.

 

The updater works by checking update server for a file list, and compares the checksums of all files in that list. For the 5427 files it currently checks, this takes about 20 seconds on my dualcore win7 laptop, so not too long but i'll try and squeeze some faster speeds out of it for older machines

 

Please DO NOT run the updater from your FLMM directory, its ment to be run from your Freelancer/EXE directory.

However, if you merge 5.48.3 and the 5.49 patch into 1 folder in FLMM, it should be ok to run from there.

 

 

Other changes include:

Fixed depot undocking bug occassionally placing players in center of system (usually in the sun)
Upgraded custom solar sur files (fixes base collision detection)
Enabled ship steering in turret view
Contact list now shows players faction affiliation
Readded some missing music files
