Thanks rodglas. I got WINAMP and that did the trick. It took me awhile to figure it out, though. The online help and FAQs were useless. Then I checked the WINAMP forum and the answer I was looking for was in one of the first posts. Really, I don't know what I'd do without forums like this. :)

The Trouble with Freighters (part deux) Armada 1

I've been having problems in the past with the AI not being able to build enough freighters to make the most of my mining stations. (Aip tweaking doesn't seem to help) Now it seems the freighters produced by my mining stations aren't very intelligent, either. For aip testing, I choose "The very firs...

Yeah, I just found that out on the "idiot" thread. I guess that means I'm an idiot for not checking there first. :oops: Can I just run a search for WINAMP, or is there someplace particular I have to go to find this software?

Well, that answers a question I had in a different thread. Could you tell us where we can download this free software? There are some SFC3 music tracks I badly want to convert to something Armada will read.

Adding new music to Armada 1

I have recently added some Starfleet Command II tunes to my copy of Armada 1, and they sound great. I then tried adding some SFC3 tunes to it only to get dead air. I know that .WAV files will work with Armada, but SFC3 music is in MP3 format. Is there any way to get MP3s to work in Armada? And if so...

No actually, I don't. If you'd like to figure it out download the Storm3D Tool (not the Viewer). Press F2 then 'w' which will give you a wireframe, then press 'n' which brings up the nodes. You can then use the pgup/pgdn buttons to scroll and find out not only how many hardpoints but where they are...

Yes! I have recently been doing some mod tweaking myself; specifically, Golem's "Way of the Warrior" mod for A1. This is one of the older Armada 1 mods out there, so it didn't have all of the latest ship models, but the AI and tech design was nothing short of outstanding, and I loved the graduation ...

The trouble with freighters (Armada 1)

I am working on my aip build lists for the Federation AI. I am trying to have the AI build two additional freighters per moon. But for some reason, the AI won't build freighters after the first two units - even though they are queued in the list. I have one moon with three freighters and all of the ...

Looking for new .wav music files

The last time I modded Armada 1, I included an "Undiscovered Country" music track for the Federation side, but that was a long time ago, and I don't remember where I got the file from. There is also the ST: TMP Klingon theme that interests me. Any help in finding these tracks in .wav format would be...

Looking for good Federation Saber Class model for Armada 1

I've looked all over the Armada 1 ship lists but, strangely, cannot find this canon ship to download. Is there an Armada 1 mod out there that includes a high-res version of the Saber? I'd hate to download a big mod on dial-up just to scavenge a single ship to use in my own, but I may not have a choi...

Thank you! That did the trick. Unfortunately, this means I'm going to have one hell of a mess in my addon folder. I don't know how I'm going to keep track of everything. Anyway, I feel like giving you a "You da man" award for helping me out of this fix. You da man! (The journey of a thousand miles ...

No, I already went through that. The computer wouldn't let me save any changes until I unchecked "read only" on the affected files. The change I made to "fscout" is now saved in the addon folder under "ships". I haven't made any other changes to "fscout" or related files, as there is little point if...

Armada 1 ODF changes not taking effect (starting over)

I'm getting back into modding Armada 1 after a 1 1/2 year hiatus. The first time I just downloaded the ST vs. SW mod, then tinkered with the odfs and added a few ships. This time I'm starting from scratch, (because ST vs. SW doesn't seem to be here) and I can't even get my foot in the door. I've dow...

I've done quite a bit of work on that old mod. Sadly, my efforts seemed to have failed. There is a fatal CTD when I click "build" in fyard. I cannot find the cause, and don't know where to start looking. The ODF for fyard looks fine... Most of my work on this mod is just odf tweaks and a few new shi...
