RE: Freelancer Tutorial for noobs

The tutorial was written a long time ago and out of date. That's why I took it down. Due to updates within wine and the distros of linux wine is on, an outdated tutorial could do a lot of damage in terms of resolving today's issues.
I did the responsible thing by NOT pasting it here.
I will say this though, winetricks is a must have if you want to get freelancer working. install all the directx stuff, your fonts, xml stuff, directplay, dotnet.... thats about all I can remember off the top of my head.
I don't play Freelancer anymore. But when I did, it worked and online multiplayer worked as well for the client side. Running a server never worked.
