    No, it just runs the executable with the selected arguments for now since I reckoned changes to the configuration files would happen.

    Uhhh, hey...
    To download this launcher click here: http://freeso.ml/fsopatch-win32-x64.exe (64bit)
    Make sure you choose a directory to install into that contains the FreeSO.exe file.
    And no, you wont need to download .NET Framework because this launcher does not use it.

    Performance Patch - 1.4.1
    Users with Windows Vista and 7 will receive an update to improve performance, there was some type of lag while using the launcher.

    New update (1.5) coming in the next days:
    - Rewritten all the code which brings workflow and performance improvements.
    - Manual game language selection (english and spanish for now) which auto-downloads the latest language pack (currently only with spanish thanks to @Womsy).
    - Auto-translation of the launcher's UI detecting the operating system's language (english and spanish for now, defaults to english).

    Should this be concerning? Is it safe? o_O

    Womsy is great. I'm working with him in Spain FSO page and am aware of every step and cooperate together. I'm super happy and grateful that we give support to the Spanish community !! Many thanks!!

    The update server has been upgraded. If your launcher is on "Looking for updates..." this is the cause.
    It should continue eventually, if it doesn't due to a timeout just restart it.

    The launcher has been updated, but it does not appear in Spanish. Is it right?

    No, the server was updated, not the launcher yet.

    The update will come out soon...
    Most important feature will be game translation (including objects).
    Still have to bug test some more.

    Can we put the game in 800x600 full screen?

    If your screen size is 800x600, then yes you can play with fullscreen 800x600.
    Or are you using some kind of special screen setup?

    That's great! Send me the translation files ASAP and I'll include them in the update which should come out today or tomorrow.
    For now the supported languages are: English (Default), Spanish (by @Womsy) and Italian (by @Alessandro Needs A Server).

    I tried to change the resolution of the screen to 800x600, then I ran FreeSO with the launcher, but it looks cropped. In options the launcher does not put 800x600 nor can I change it manually. I do not know what else I can do

    I just tried it myself changing the screen to 800x600 and it works as expected:


    I'm not sure what is happening in your case, can you include some screenshots of the launcher and its settings?
  20. Oniji Abukara

    I know what happens First I have to change the resolution, THEN start the game. I had started the launcher, then changed the resolution, so I did not get it. I rebooted the PC with 800x600 and now it works fine at that resolution. Once I open the launcher, when I close it on the taskbar, it will not let me reopen it because it says it is already open (although it is not) so I must reboot the entire PC.
