    Default The FFED3D Thread

    UPDATE: Download for current version here:
    Official Russian pack.

    FFE D3D (1.12b+) (v.1: 04nov2009) 150Mb:
    http://www.elite-games.ru/conference...ic.php?t=50657

    NEW DL Link - 3 part archive 24/05/2011
    http://www.elite-games.ru/conference...ic.php?t=54998

    This looks like something that we've all been after for a bit - an updated graphics version of FFE. These Russian guys have done what looks like quite a spectacular remake graphics wise of FFE - now downloading it looks too be a challenge - if anyone here can read Russian - register and then DL the files then I can find a way to host them and we can all enjoy it. Meanwhile check out these screen shots.

    Wow!

    /drool

    I want it - now!
    Unfortunately, unless "Yes, "No" and "More vodka" will be enough to navigate the site, i'm not sure i can help.

    I might have a go later to see if I can register - perhaps some clever use of Google Translator and cross referencing could get me in - the only problem I forsee is when they ask "Please enter the text you see in the picture" it's going to be in Russian and not having a Russian keyboard it might not work....

    EDIT: Just tried - I keep getting some sort of error that I can figure out however!!!!

    Go here: http://groups.google.com/group/alt.f...ff74a2bd85f7a#
    and all the downloads are available! Christmas may have just come early -

    Update:

    Well, it seems that "more vodka" was just enough to do the job!

    If anyone wants me to mail them the file, PM me an email address

    *EDIT*

    Having looked at steve-o's link, it seems that all i got was the patch (a 2mb file) and not the full thing (a 66mb file).

    Anyway, i can get files form that Russian site if it turns out neccesary.

    Nice work - I've got the full file coming down - clearly there is no need to host tho since someone else has taken care of that for us!

    Hopefully there are some install instructions

    ...Downloading now. Don't think my work machine will have the necessary specs though. Looks a great find (and I didn't realise good old alt fan elite was still active!)

    It's a shame we can't chat with these Russian guys.

    I've always thought:
    To hell with next-gen.
    Just give us FFE with updated graphics and lots more hand-coded missions and i'll be happy!

    If we could get a community effort together to make some hand-coded missions then we'd be there! No more waiting about for something that is not even definitely happening yet.
