Windows 7 advice needed

Post by DOGofWAR » Tue Jan 19, 2016 9:14 pm

I am new to AFC. Will Armada I and II run on Windows 7, or is there a lot of hoops to jump through? My friend and I used to play BOTF on our old desktops pcs, but since we have new pcs running Windows 7, we have crashes when going into battles. We really like this game, but before we give up on it and just go on to playing "Endless Space" on STEAM, we are reaching out for answers here. Thanks.

Hi, welcome!

Armada I and II should run on Win7. For A1, run with compatibility settings (winXP), and apply the unofficial 1.3 patch to resolve some common problems. Online multiplayer is done through Tungle or GameRanger, depending on your preference.

For Armada 2, you may want to consider the FleetOps extension; much more than a mod, and makes the game playable on new computer hardware.

Lastly, ensure that you have the latest drivers for your nvidia or radeon graphics cards; some severe graphics issues have been resolved by latest nvidia drivers in the past year or so.

Good luck
