Alex's Freedom Fortress 02Aug16 - Summer Spectacular!
« Reply #61 on: August 02, 2016, 11:43:53 PM »
A big-time update today to welcome in August.

First up, more lost treasures from my backup hard drive. There are 20 skins/meshes from the resident artists. And I'll pause to point out that, with this update, the Fortress now proudly hosts over 2,000 skins and meshes !



But wait ! That's not all! Alex's Atlas has been updated and now shows all the maps from the original Freedom Force game - 68 in all! I've also converted the Atlas to work off a database, to make future maintenance easier and other features possible in the future.

I have updated art on some of my "Goodies".

And finally - a quick update on mods:

As I've done for other mods on my site, I've updated the Suicide Squad Mod installer to more easily support the GOG and Steam versions of  FF (default is GOG). I also added a launch EXE like I have on other mods. The installer places a shortcut to this on your desktop when installing. Basically, it just makes it easy to install and play the mod (plus using the latest install creation software made the download file a bit smaller)

I have done some work to get the Freedom Force (original game) Mod working properly. Fixed the Mission 2 bug by scripting a workaround. Fixed some maps that weren't working right, added some missing head.nifs, and fixed the strings throughout the game. Hope to get this re-released in the near future. Thanks to Yellow Lantern and Spydermann93 for their testing help so far!

2,000? Impressive! …Plus maps and mods?

You should be commended for preserving and showcasing so much of this community's work, Alex.

Alex's Freedom Fortress 30Sep2016 - Fall Update!
« Reply #64 on: September 30, 2016, 11:44:48 PM »
I've been tied up with lots of real-life stuff, but wanted to put something out to let you know the fortress is still here.

I've updated the FF mod for FFv3R (after many many years!). Now renamed "FF Classic for FFv3R" - several bugs have been fixed, so it should work all the way through at least level 10! May work further but I haven't played further. Let me know if you find bugs! Get it on the Mods page!
A huge special thanks to yell0w_Lantern and spydermann93  for testing the mod (and thx YL, for the fixed abomb nif)!

Coming soon (hopefully) ... I am just about ready to release the long-delayed EZFX 6.1 as well as my still-nameless app that auto-installs meshes. Look for them in October!

And a Fortress update wouldn't be complete without more magic from DaGlob (this time, with a collaboration with J_Foam as well!)
Enjoy the 18 new skins/meshes !

Make sure "All Characters" is selected. You should be able to find them.

Alex's Freedom Fortress 3Oct2016 - Mod Fix!
« Reply #71 on: October 04, 2016, 12:14:54 AM »
Re-posted the FF Classic Mod, the version I put up a couple of days ago was a slightly older build than the latest one (oops!). This one has corrected even more bugs. I've titled this download FFClassic_v3, so you'll know you have the latest. Grab it on the Mods page.

I see you've already updated to v.4! :) The download URL still points to the now-missing v.3, though.

Alex's Freedom Fortress 2May2020 - EZFX6.1!
« Reply #73 on: May 02, 2020, 09:58:12 PM »
EZFX 6.1 - It's happening!
In another update I thought I'd never make, I've completed EZFX 6.1, 4 years after I started it. EZFX is an FX pack for FFv3R and adds over 600 power FX to the game, many by me, but most from other members of the community. As always, get it on my Goodies page and check out the full credits! NOTE: EZFX6.1 should installed AFTER FFX3 (if you're using FFX 3, which you really should be :) ) Special thanks to Cyber Burn for all his help on this.

UNBELIEVABLE!!

I would never have imagined -- after all these years, this community still finds ways to amaze me still!

Thanks so much!

I'm too much of a coward to try to install it because I am running a Steam install and I haven't backed up nearly enough material -- and I need to get on that -- but holy cow. One day, when this old laptop gives up the ghost and I install this game and rebuild the files from the ground up, that's what I will come looking for immediately!

Perfect timing. Since I just lost EVERYTHING and had to do a complete re-install, at least I'll have one less thing to worry about.

Stupid Windows rolled me back from W8.1 to W8, and my whole Irrational Games folder disappeared as did my back up folder. All my programs, custom characters, fx's, dat files, mods, and everything I have altered, all gone. And since it's been a while since I've backed things up, it's that much worse.  :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Yeah, I've had Carbonite backing up my entire HDD for years now because this kept happening to me.  I'm still missing some DCUG stuff from one of those early crashes...

This happened to me to more times that i can remember, some time i have abandoned the game for long periods cause this, now i backup the entire ff folder on a usb pen it takes me 5minutes, and i have discovered that i can export  :ff: in this state, and it actually works without installation, even on other machines cause  :ff: have all the files he need in one folder ( and this is another thing that makes me use  :ff: and not  :ffvstr: ).

Tried it just now it works perfectly, the only thing is you have to create a shortcut with -log in the destination path to have the "new" attributes works.
