Ok, I'm a new member who has noted two others with the same problem as me. Namely, the game crashing at Level 3 when meeting Juni at Manhattan Bar, with Freelancer Massive Addon 1.1a (FMA) mod activated.

First, I have the same problem. My current location is in Newark Station, but I crash whenever I try to take off, though accessing dealers on the station itself is fine.

I have a possible hypothesis as to what is causing the problem:
Note that FMA doesn't like waypoints that cross or end up at Manhattan. Test this by plotting best path to the planet... you will immediately crash to desktop.

See the link here? It seems that the reason why FL crashes at Level 3 is that Juni insists on using the darned planet Manhattan, and that FL automatically plots a path to her.

My possible solution to the problem:
You must buy enough commodities and land on Manhattan while at Level 2 WITHOUT plotting a waypoint there (ie. by pilot's eye. But comeon! If you can't identify Manhattan when in the New York System and fly there with your toenails while blindfolded, you don't deserve your freelancer license.)
Now, at Manhattan, you must sell the commodity so as to achieve Level 3 WITHOUT LEAVING MANHATTAN. Juni's mission should trigger, and you SHOULD theoretically be able to meet her at the Bar without any crashes.

Now that I've given a possible solution to the FMA Level 3 problem, I'm going to test it out and post my experiment results.

My theory was correct... I successfully did the Level 3 mission and am now Level 4 without crashing.

To avoid the Freelancer Massive AddOn 1.1 crash
1.) Buy enough commodities from a planet other than Manhattan... enough so that you level up to 3 when the goods are sold in Manhattan.
2.) Fly to Manhattan WITHOUT using waypoints.
3.) Sell the goods and level up.
4.) Go to the Manhattan bar and accept the mission Juni gives you WITHOUT LEAVING MANHATTAN.
5.) Carry on with the game.

The crash might come back again in future missions that automatically give you a Manhattan waypoint. Will post a solution when I get there.

Nope. Appears that the bad coding for Manhattan waypoints has rendered FMA 1.1a unusable for single-player.

The Level 4 to 5 mission involves Juni contacting you to meet her on manhattan (after the "Lonnigan threatens you with gun" cutscene). It is impossible to get past the crash even if you do the commodity level-up on Manhattan trick. Same thing goes if you level up anyplace else.

Unless or until FMA's creator chooses to solve the Manhattan waypoint crash, FMA 1.1a, in my analysis, is incompatible with single-player missions.

hi can sum one help with sumthing i had a play on a server i think he had a mod on that lets him desaber and reaber in an other system with out loging of is there a mod lick that??????

Post Sun Sep 11, 2005 8:00 am

There is not a mod like that, at least not that I know of but whoever is running the server may be running the IONCROSS Server Operator program which allows characters to be transfered to any system.

They may be using a cloaking mod which makes you seem invisible.
