I'm a big fan of the game Freelancer, but for some reason they decided not to finish the "play in a window" support. You can tell they intended to get it done, but I guess they didn't have the time. Anyway. I've hacked up the two binaries that need hacking to get it to work:
I did this with a little Direct3D8 debugger I wrote and some hex editing. Improvements include:
The window resolution is set to 1024x768.. I haven't bothered trying to get 800x600 to work.
To install, copy the above files over the ones you have in the Freelancer\EXE directory - but I recommend you make a backup of the originals first. There's likely some bugs that I haven't fixed and you don't want to have to reinstall.
