Freelancer: HD Edition (1.1, JFLP, No-CD, HD textures and more) - Option 1

  1. Download the latest FreelancerHDSetup.exe from
  2. Open the setup file and read the instructions on-screen carefully

Note: This includes all the files contained in Option 2 (below). Use the 2nd option if you don't want HD Textures + Enchancements.

Vanilla Patch (Combined 1.1, JFLP, No-CD) - Option 2

  1. Download the self extracting zip:
  2. Extract to your Freelancer installation e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Freelancer

You will need to right click and "Run as Admin" for the patch if installing to Program Files. We never reccomend installing the game to the default location in Program files unless you have a very specific reason to.
