[2021-May-12] New Classic Mod Fix
First post of 2021. With the everything going on in the world the last few months, haven't played around with FF lately, but I do have some updates in the works!
A quick one today - a new update of the Freedom Force Classic Mod (now at version 8). Even though I'd added missing NIFs for the Prehistoric Panic mission in v7, a lack of mesh bounding boxes meant it as impossible to complete the mission. Thanks to NyDedes for sending me a fixed NIF file. I've also patched up problems in Missions 10, 14, and 16. I am aware of an issue in Mission 19 (that will require a fixed NIF file - I just have to make the time to fix it). There's also a minor issue in Level 1 if you're doing the tutorial. Other than that, FF Classic should be playable up to 19, so we're almost 100%. Get it on the Mods page
[2020-Aug-16] Yet Another Update!
Keeping the streak alive, here's another update for all you Freedom Force fans out there!
First up, there's a new update of the Freedom Force Classic Mod (now at version 7). This latest update fixes some missing NIFs that cause a crash on the Prehistoric Panic mission. (And I double-tested the installer to avoid my usual mistake when I build this mod for distribution!)
Also this month, the EZFX credits pages have been updated to show the version of EZFX that a specific FX was first released in. I also changed the formatting to make it a bit easier to read and corrected a database problem that was causing the page to not always show all the FX. I am still working on EZFX version 6.2.
Thanks to DaGlob for putting together FFv3R versions of some KennX meshes that would not convert to FFv3R. They are actually found in Lightning Man's Gallery, as Kenn did them for LM. We can now enjoy them in FFv3R!
And finally, we have some newly uploaded skins and meshes from the Fortress' resident artists.
[2020-Jul-3] For Freedom!
For the 4th of July, I'm posting the rest of Renegade's classic Captain America meshes as well as a few other shield-slingers from his ToyBox. Thanks to Cyber Burn for providing me a few of these.
The ever-creative DaGlob is also back with 7 more creations! Three of them (Triumph, Tarantula, and The Phantasm) feature skopes by Cyber_Burn.
Also in this update, I've posted an updated Freedom Force Classic Mod (v6) to correct a problem with the installer. Thanks to spydermann93 for catching it.
Finally, a special thanks to DaGlob for creating FFv3R fixes for some older meshes by Greycount (Flare, Lamprey, Lightning Lass, Phantom Girl). Thanks to him, we can now enjoy them in FFv3R. He has also sent me some fixes for a few KennX meshes which I will add to my next update.
[2020-06-28] Beware The Beyonder!
A quick but historic update today. It only took about 18 years, but I've now posted the remaining Beyonder meshes I had on my hard drive. His X-Men Evolution collection is now complete. I've also split the generic male mesh packs into individual downloads with keyframes (over 70 meshes). Finally, I've added the female generic meshes (more than 50, featuring standard skins by Firestorm!) If there are other Beyonder meshes I'm unaware of, let me know!
Note that all the downloads in the artist sections now indicate or , so you know what to expect.
UPDATE: Thanks to Wyldfyre for sending me the X-men Evolution Samuel and Scott meshes. I've added them now as well.
[2020-Jun-14] Alex's Summer Update!
With summer coming up, I'm back with another Fortress update! For starters, I've added a little slide show of Freedom Force pics at the top of this homepage. Will add more pics in the future as this initial attempt was just a quick test of some code .
Also in this update, I post more classic stuff from Renegade's Toybox!
And finally, I've created a new version of the FF Classic Mod, the first one since 2016! Version 5 has a number of changes, including:
There are likely still bugs left to find, but this version is much closer to the classic FF experience. Grab it on the MODS page!
[2020-May-23] EZ Hero Strikes Back!
Probably been years since I did 3 updates in a month but here we are! First up, more works by our resident artists!
But wait ! There's more! The first new EZ Hero in 4 years!This new 4.0 version adds some significant new features:
EZ Hero will warn you if a mesh folder already exists. Also, for mesh archives that have FF and FFv3R files in them - it will even install only the ones you need for the game you have listed in your settings. Check out the EZ Hero page for more info! NOTE: The vast majority (I'd guess 90-95%) of mesh archives will work but those that use uncommon folder structures or multi-packs won't. Always have backups!
[2020-May-17] Two updates in a month!
Yes, I have now doubled the number of 2019 updates.
And finally, more offerings from our resident artists:
[2020-May-2] 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 back in 2016 (and 15 years after EZFX 6!). 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 FFX3.3 (if you're using FFX, which you really should be :) ) Special thanks to Cyber Burn for all his help on this.
