    Version 1.3.2
    • Software Mode using https://fdossena.com/?p=mesa/index.frag for compatibility with older graphics cards or no graphics card at all.
    • General improvement of code and user interface here and there.
    • Some tweaks to hopefully stop some errors from happening too often to a some people (cab corruption).

    Hello everybody!
    I'm back to work a bit more on the launcher. In particular, I will be focusing on finishing the Mac OS version.

    It'll be here soon. And hopefully it'll make life a bit easier for all of you with these brilliant MacBooks.
    Currently, it does everything in this thread: http://forum.freeso.org/threads/freeso-on-mac.6177/. I'll see if I add anything else I consider useful.
    I'll also be making some improvements to the TSO installer to make it retry failed cab downloads x number of times.

    By the way, if anybody has any suggestions, make sure to post them in this thread. I'll be watching.

    Hello everyone!
    There has been a change of plans regarding the Mac version of the launcher. I've been working on the Mac version for weeks, but my main focus has shifted towards a new program that I've been working on that will make FreeSO more easier to install than ever before. Multiple users have also requested it.

    Introducing: FreeSO Installer
    A better, simpler FreeSO installation experience.
    A zero-configuration, straight to the point installer that will work on Windows, Mac and Linux out of the box.
    Main focus of this is to deliver a great, fast, and smooth cross-platform FreeSO installation experience, eliminating the numerous issues seen before with the launcher.

    The installer's design has been recreated from @Alessandro Needs A Server's concept. http://forum.freeso.org/threads/freeso-installer-concept-v2-0-video.1688/

    What will this mean for the launcher?
    The launcher isn't going anywhere. I'll still work on improving it, and reducing the number of issues it currently has with some players. Ideally, I'd like to offer our players both options working perfectly, the launcher and the installer, so players can pick their favorite.

    Hope you guys have a great day! Let's all make FreeSO a great experience for everyone :)
