You can't read at all or the text in the game is gone?
What is your computer specs?
What's your OP, Windows 64-bit, XP, 2000?
Becuase many things can cause a problem in the game.

Are you or have you used any mods?
You may have an edited resource.dll file that could be causing the problem.
If this problem is not appearing in any other game or program that you use that's probably your problem.

How do I fix this?
I suggest you delete your freelancer folder... not uninstall and reinstall but just delete the folder...
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Freelancer
then install Freelancer
That will give you a clean set of files to start with, now you can do what you were doing before the problem showed up...

for austin
If you don't want to open the computers case and look inside to see what video card you have...
You should be able to;
click on - start - click on Control Panel - double click on System in the Control Panel, the System Properties screen should pop up - click the Hardware tab - click on Divice Manager - click on the + next to Display adaptors, that will open it up and your video card should be listed there.

my graphics card is a Intel(R) 82810E Graphics Controller

That isn't a graphics card. That is an onboard video chipset that is barely supported by Freelancer. Making sure you have the newest drivers for it would probably help. You should also check out Dragons Tech Center's post in this thread.

I would see about upgrading ram, no matter what. It can only help. Your vid ram is shared ram, which very much limits the amout available.

What The admin put: I would see about upgrading ram, no matter what. It can only help. Your vid ram is shared ram, which very much limits the amout available.

i play on my pc at home aswell and the pc is faster a and it has 100mb system ram less. mine has 300mb and the font is ok this pc i am on now which is 400mb system ram, ok its bound to run faster on a faster pc and better i no what ya saying. basicly i need to update the whole pc itself, but i am just asking for advice without doing that
but i am greatful for advice
also i looked at another topic after i made my first post in here. and it said that i need to install the fonts from the game disc to my windows fonts folder.which i did.
any other advice???

I don't suspect a problem with hardware here. I have friends wich have Freelancer instaled on computers much slowiest than this one (P2 450Mhz, 96Mb Ram, HDD 20Gb, Video Ati rage 8Mb) and the game run very good with Mods instaled!
I think it's from the instalation of the Mod.
Try reinstal the game, is the best option.
And get a regcleaner to clean your PC !!!
