I was browsing and testing the FEAR Server List and found this! lol I was kinda mazed someone runs a Server in THAT Version :O
Little progress today. Spent most of the time trying to force the German updater to install but that didn’t work at all. The creators made each language use a hexadecimal code for each language, but only tested 2 and couldn’t find a pattern. Tomorrow will continue to extract all other languages and check the hexadecimal code of the existing installers so I can figure out the german one.
Again If someone has FEAR or FEAR Combat installed in German I’d love to get: 5 files from your game, or 2 values from your Registry.
Meanwhile I got Italian files today, idk why I don’t have all of them, looks like the files I already had for most languages were in the Virtual machine I lost in the Hard Disk disaster some months ago :/
There’s a chance tomorrow I work in the language switch in the Launcher. Shouldn’t take that much time, I only wanted some more language files.
In today news, I still can’t get the german installer for FEAR or FEAR Combat.
but I think I can trick the 1.08 updater to install on top of the english version with some registry hacks.
Will try tomorrow. For now I reinstalled the VM to extract the language packs. I hope I can have more time to work on this.
Server List is almost complete, only needs some visual tweaks.
Will work more on this tomorrow 🙂
- Read/write of the CDKey works 100% now (Doesn’t need admin rights)
- If the key.ini file doesn’t exist, It’s created automatically.
- If the path to the key.ini file doesn’t exists, It creates It automatically.
- If no key is found, It asks for It.
- Shows loading message to let user know It’s working.
- home/multiplayer/profile sections are complete.

I started working on It, this time It’s a Win32 exe, so It will have all the required features we couldn’t Implement in the existing one.
The features we will include are:
- Advanced Configuration tool.
- Working Language switcher.
- Better CDKey update tool.
- Improved server list with filter and arrange features.
- Working (again) News section.
- Working FEAR-Community profile linking.
- Run Game as Administrator (Implemented).
What is already implemented? Well, nothing. But I know how to implement everything, only need time ( yeah, that’s the bad news ). I hope we can release this for 2013/01/01, but who knows.
Already implemented some of the features. Most of the old functionality already works, except for the CDKey update, will work on that later!
This is a common question when making maps. I myself don’t really like to add too much details because they used to lag my old PC, and I think most people will thank It, but let’s make a reality check!
You like detailed, shiny, breakable maps? or you are a minimalist fan?
Poll In the left side.
