Come get' some Level


After my first experience with online games in 2000 I've build up and successfully ran several large online clans. In 2001 climbed up the ladder in Starlancer and managed to become one of the most successful players worldwide in that game aswell as leader of the largest clan. Since that I stuck to the Sci-fi game genre. In 2002 the SWAT Portal was founded and since that I am leading this Sci-fi Game Portal that supports a large range of games. One of these games is Freelancer. Not long after its release in 2003 I've started modding the game (my modding experiences with other games reach back to 1993 where I've created my first work). Until now I've created 4 Freelancer mods and assisted countless of other Mod projects. The Crossfire Mod which is currently my main project keeps holding the Top position of the Freelancer mods for several years. Most important for me is the success of the SWAT Community and its members aswell as professional work.


No blog entries have been posted here. Boring yes, but as confucius says - if you have nothing good to say, why say anything at all? Check back later, perhaps something exciting will pop-up and be worth blogging about, like season 3 of the teletubbies.

Speak your mind, rant about games, mods and the development scene, it's simple and who knows maybe someone will read it and agree. It will feel right!

Just stumbled over the Crossfire Mod a few days ago - thx a lot for all the time and effort you and your fellow coder put into this, it's mindblowing! In the course of infoming myself about Star Citizen i thought about digging the old Freelancer out, if i knew what awaits me i'd do that a lot earlier :-)

Looking forward to 2.0 and whatever you do next!

Hey SWAT, it's nice to see this mod is doing so well. By the way, can I ask you something?

Swat, you're not like other admins, you're one of the good ones, one of the admins who look after their members, one of the admins who say "Sure, I'll help you" and not one of the regular ones who say "I'm busy, bye." you're a good person with a good mod, keep the good work up. One more thing, I have Freelancer Explorer, that means if you ever need my help with creating or editing star systems, come to me.

maybe try getting better shields/armor upgrade, or also try getting longer-ranged weapons? photon-cannons dont work bvery well against nomad ships ;)

do you remove all the saved game data

from previous installs?

then i load freelancer i run the game but i done start one
then i load flmm and make sure no other mods are activated

the i run the crossfire exe it should file itself in the flmm
then activate and run
you shouldn't need the freelancer disk any more after that and your FL icon should turn into a crossfire one

best i can do ,hope it helps

Hey SWAT! Absolutely love your work with Crossfire! Crossfire is by far the best Freelancer mod out there and in my opinion always will be! :D
