How to play Microsoft Freelancer online

The Microsoft supported freelancer server list server has been down for quite some time. There are several simple
solutions to be able to access a replacement server list.

The most simple method is to open c:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Freelancer\EXE\Freelancer.ini and change the list server entrys to work with the new list server.

Original version

Source code

1

3
4
5
[ListServer]
;;;hostname = localhost                              ;Your local machine
;;;hostname = FLListServer2.dns.corp.microsoft.com   ;GUN server in Austin
;;;hostname = 131.107.135.190                        ;GUN server in Redmond
hostname = fllistserver.zone.msn.com              ;GUN server in Redmond (DNS entry)


Working version

;;;hostname = localhost                              ;Your local machine
;;;hostname = FLListServer2.dns.corp.microsoft.com   ;GUN server in Austin
;;;hostname = 131.107.135.190                        ;GUN server in Redmond
;;;hostname = fllistserver.zone.msn.com              ;GUN server in Redmond (DNS entry)
hostname = gun.fllistserver.com                ;new working list server

Re: How to play Microsoft Freelancer online

When I went into the EXE file and went to change the [Listserver] and made the changes just fine, but when I clicked the save button, it said that I was denied access to save in the file AND the folder. Can you help me?

Re: How to play Microsoft Freelancer online

You're probably running Vista/Win 7 - right?

Either way, the win program files directory is protected.

  • Go to the dir (/exe or /freelancer above it)
  • Right click it
  • Choose Properties
  • Click the Security tab
  • Choose Edit (win7/vista)
  • Give full control too all (click the in turn and click the Full control checkbox)
  • Ok that (back to the Security tab)
  • In the General tab (left most), de-tick Read-only
  • Click OK to exit the Properties window


Similar problem with other folders (the Mod-foder of the Freelancer Mod Manager for example) - same procedure.

Hope this helps.

Re: How to play Microsoft Freelancer online

Sorry it took me forever to reply. Yeah, it worked. Thanks. Just in case you might know, how do i change the priority level of something on my computer? When I try to change the priority level of some program, it tells me that I don't have authorization to change the priority level of it. Can you help me?

from what ive read the list server is offline currently due to a HDD failure

you still should be able to connect to servers using command line and the server IPs

how to connect to server by IP address?
