Sry, something doesn't work as expected. You may have disabled your gamestats etc?

Anything for Mac? I tried my own research but only found Xblaze which was an unfinished project so it won't work...

I guess you still have to setup the account at the official www.xfire.com site.

It declares the browser that an external application should be used, in this case of course Xfire.

I applied.
I'm also vouching for ingame support for FS2 and FSO (but FSO has so many updates... lol)

Some people are like Slinkies.  They aren't really good or even useful for anything but they always manage to put a little smile on your face when you give them enough of a push down the stairs.

Re: FreeSpace II Xfire-Community -> A good possibility to meet up for MP games.
I dunno if anyone else did this, but I went into my xfire_games.ini file and put this at the end:
Code: [Select]
[5866]
LongName=Freespace 2
ShortName=Fs2
LauncherDirKey=HKEY-LOCAL-MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Volition, Inc.\FreeSpace 2\1.20.000
LauncherExe=fs2_open_3_6_10_RC3.exe
LauncherNetworkArgs=%UA_GAME_HOST_NAME%:%UA_GAME_HOST_PORT%%UA_LAUNCHER_PASSWORD_ARGS%
Launch=%UA_LAUNCHER_EXE_PATH% %UA_LAUNCHER_EXTRA_ARGS% %UA_LAUNCHER_NETWORK_ARGS%
InGameRenderer=OGL
I derived it from a topic in Xfire's forums vouching for FS2 support.
Changes are the LauncherExe (original used an OLD version of FS2 Open.. dunno if this makes any difference because I didn't wanna take chances) and added "InGameRenderer=OGL", where OGL can also be D3D8 depending on renderer (with my settings I have little to no difference because the latest MediaVPs don't work well with my POS craptop computer).
I have no clue if the registries are correct. What I ended up having to do was manually selecting the EXE. After doing everything, though, it all works!
Ingame works, too. I was testing out broadcasting last night, and even had some viewers.
