Re: A1 - hidden = 1 command?

Those are good suggestions, CABAL I use it to create invisible map objects that are either a station or a uball object. These can be used for a variety of effects: adding extra effects to the stock nebula via weapons on the hidden object light sources, also via weapons with shotspeed = 0 let the AI ...

Re: Possibly Actually Starting to Mod!!

Most of your modding will be sitting down and looking through lots of odf files. Transferring downloaded files to your XP computer will be a very minor part of the overall modding process. USB stick is probably the best way for you. So why don't you start with adding a phaser to the steamrunner? Dow...

Re: Armada I, Armada II (FleetOps) and Windows 10

Thanks for the bit of info. Win7 works fine for most people with patches as you mention. Win8 is the one people are having problems with. It is conceivable that different editions of Win7 may have better support for Armada (home basic vs pro or ultimate). I didn't notice the same significant feature...

Re: anybody still around ?

Took me a few days to figure out how to upload files to the main downloads section. For the time being, can you send me the files? Dropbox, google drive, some free file hosting, or email (sent you PM with address). For email, please only .zip files <25MB. Recommended option is drop box (<2GB) or goo...

Re: anybody still around ?

Yes, I have the ftp details saved someplace. Please let me know if you want to have something uploaded on AFC and I'll get things arranged.

Please have a list of credits available with anything that you want to submit. Screenshots and description I can help you with.

Cheers :)

Re: Windows 7

Have you tried the 1.3 patch I suggested above? If, so, what problems are you having? Does the main menu load?

Re: NEW to Modding. Armada I help please.

Hi, welcome :) The tech files should have been included with the ODF files download; "techtree" folder. After editing the appropriate .tt file, place it in the addon folder of your armada install. tech1.tt is the "standard" tech for instant action. The STAUM debugger is an excellent tool. Some of th...

Re: APRIL 2012 FUTURE TENSE STATUS REPORT

Since the last post here, Jan 24 2014, quite a lot was done to complete balancing (cost, strength, build times, special wep complements). We're quite happy on that front. The biggest hurdle since then is having enough time, from both Adam and myself, to work out three crucial items: - fix sound effe...

Re: Armada on Windows 7

That's good news! Thanks to you, thunderchero, and gho with dxwnd. I've been meaning to collect some relevant info and post on their forum, but have had no time. Will try this weekend. One key point I wanted to deliver is that a lot of config settings are in armada.prf (game settings, graphics adapt...

Re: Armada on Windows 7

Ah, I see. Yeah, would be awesome to have it running on Win 8. My understanding is that the game needs 16bit program support to run properly, which is discontinued in Win 8. Main issues with Armada on Win 7 have been: - memory error overflow when more than 4GB of ram is installed (game says not enou...

Re: Armada on Windows 7

Thanks thunderchero,

I will give this a look, looks interesting. Armada I runs fine on Win7 by the way. Running on Win 8 is currently unsolved, as far as I know. I will pitch in a bit of info on that forum.

Re: Armada on Windows 7

I have the polygon tearing problem with gtx750 and driver 344.11:( I used Ati/AMD for nearly ten years and decided to make a switch last month. Almost happy with the new card until I found nvidia has problem with Armada I. I can even get Dominion Wars working, but not Armada. As reported by you, yo...

Re: anybody still around ?

Take care of yourself bud, real life lets itself be known every now and then in the most blunt possible way. Adam, nice to see you're on the face of this planet :P Been a while. I'm always up for "more than I can handle", lol. We should catch up and see exactly where we left things off and how much ...

Re: anybody still around ?

I have Armada I and II working on both a Windows 7 computer as well as on a Windows 8 computer. Both use Nvidia graphic cards and have no graphic errors. You actually got to know how to use the full potential of the graphics card to get around it having errors. Only had graphical errors with A1 and...
