multiplayer problem

whenever I go online it crashes within 2 minutes without fail

Post Thu Jan 19, 2006 1:22 am

the first time i got on online i also had a power cut and when i got back on all the servers had vanished, and they havent returned yet apart from once but then they all vanished again a few hours later. Any suggestions?

They may be strong, but they always fall

As written in other forum: make a fresh install and proceed along the explanations in the first sticky here

I'm sorry, I meant Freelancer crashes, the game crashes to the desktop without fail, not the server

Freelancer is still crashing and it only happens during multiplayer games, even after the reinstall. Do I have to play on servers with less players or something?

Are you trying to enter a server?
Becuase if you are trying to enter a server you should read if it uses a mod, becuase some servers will kick you or your game will crash if you do not have the mod they are using.

no, no, I only go into version 1.00 servers, I'm able to be online for a couple minutes, then the the whole game quits for no apparent reason. Windows doesn't throw up a technical reason at all.

Most of the servers that show as "1.00" are running mods, some of them are server side mods but most require a client side mod. Read the description about the server to see what mods you need to get on it.

I've already to run on a server that states in the description, "NO CLIENT SIDE MODS". with the same problem still.

It might just be your Freelancer...
Now I knoiw you did a reinstall, how about a 'clean install'. Which means removing everything freelancer. (Saved games, etc.) You don't have to remove mods you got in FLMM. Just make sure they are off when you do this clean install.
This might fix your problem.

Another way is that you can update your freelancer with the p[atch that microsoft came out, you can find it on the site. That patch helps people who can't obtain a ID.........
But still anything might work...
I know this wasn't much of help, but try it and see what happens...
