Common problems & Easy solutions


1. Having a hard time finding the Discovery Launcher? Search it on Windows or find it within your Discovery files. You must use this launcher.

2. Temporarily disable your Antivirus as the anticheat mechanism used by Discovery may result in a false-positive detection and interfere with the installation process.

3. Do not select your original Freelancer folder as a destination when installing Discovery Freelancer. Doing so can corrupt the install.

4. Windows 10 users can open ISO files natively. Pre Windows 10 users can use WinRAR or other software.

In your start menu, there's a folder called Discovery Freelancer. There's an uninstaller in there. You can use this to remove your current 4.88 installation or simply manually delete the folder yourself. Your accounts will not be lost are they are stored in a different folder, which is My Documents/My Games/Discovery.

uninstall 4.88, install 4.88.1

RE: Discovery 4.88.1 - Pepe - 03-05-2015

Game works for me now. Here is what I did wrong and got banned acc for that. I marked it with yellow:

Quote:Set huds shift to corners procedure. What you need to do is:

1. Add "hudshift.dll" to the list of DLLs (under [Libraries]) in dacom.ini, located in Freelancer install directory\EXE
2. Move hudshift.dll to Freelancer install directory\EXE
3. Move hudshift.ini to Freelancer install directory\DATA\INTERFACE
4. Open hudshift.ini. Find your monitor/window aspect ratio or resolution. It's at the top of the .ini.
5. Remove the semicolon - the ; - from where it says [;HUDSHIFT] for your resolution/aspect ratio
6. Save hudshift.ini. Launch Freelancer.

Example:
; Adjustments for 16:9 (1280x720, 1440x810, 1600x900, 1920x1080).
[;HUDShift]
Horizontal = 0.17

should be changed to

Adjustments for 16:9 (1280x720, 1440x810, 1600x900, 1920x1080).
[HUDShift]

That line is already added to dll list. Making another leads to kicking from server and acc ban.

Unfortunately no. I have made DSLauncher require administrator privileges in order to put an end to permission problems that were plaguing some installations.


RE: Discovery 4.88.1 - Gondoros - 03-05-2015

After i installed the new update the game became unplayable. FPS fluctuates from 15 to 40, drops a lot whenever npcs/player ships, show up. Now I may have an old pc but still, before this update, FPS was between 70-130.
I even reinstalled windows and did a clean install , the problem persists.
What can i do?

Nothing changed in that aspect.
I suggest you check for background processes or try this dll: http://discoverygc.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=123675

Did you choose to install the bloom mod with v4.88.1? If you weren't previously using the bloom mod on your v4.88.0 install, that could explain the drastic FPS drop you're experiencing with v4.88.1, as it requires more from your computer. You may see this thread for uninstall instructions if this is the case.

EDIT: Any luck, Lyth? I doubt that it's a firewall issue in that case, but I can't say that I have any better suggestions just yet.

EDIT2: Looks like a few more are having the same issue in the shoutbox, actually. Or at least something that leads to the same symptoms as you are seeing. Odd.

Checked the background processes, nothing is eating my resources, usage of cpu is like 20%, RAM like 50%.
Tried copying that dll but i get an error when launching disco from the launcher.

And i haven't installed the bloom either. Out of ideas Sad

Delete 4.88.1
Delete 4.88.0

Install 4.88.1 while choosing VANILA Freelancer folder.

Play the game via DSlauncher.
