Why the hell isnt my armada working :(

Post by Jazznaz89 »

Is Armada 1 not compatible with new graphics cards? I just installed my new 6600gt and it wont play on it. it will work for a little while, and then it dies. Any help? If this is in the wrong forum can a mod please move it to the appropriate one?

Cheers

*EDIT*

Alright i fixed my graphics problem, but my sound is still all jumpy and poop. If i click a unit, the voice will play but will not nessecarily finish, it will just cut off. the music skips aswell. if anybody has any knowledge of this problem could u help me out?

Thx.

I get this problem with A1 myself and apparently its possibly a hardware acceleration problem. You could try adjusting it, btu thats about the best thing I can suggest

If the problem is one where the picture flickers rapidly readjust the graphics setting within the game (i.e., setting on 800x600x32 to 800x600x16).

This is definetly not the sort of attitude we encourage here at AFC!! Please refrain from being rude to other members especially when it appears that you are only new yourself!! :x

Three postings and already under watch.

I tell you what. How about this for a response. One more outburst of this kind and consider that posting to be your last.

Consider me the fourth who is keeping an eye on you.

Excellent. I'm glad you think this way. Let me be the first to eliminate you. Thank you for doing business with us. Goodbye. :) Now notice your new rank. :D Spiffy ain't it!

Just took a look-see here. Ah-ha! It seems this IS your third strike:

https://www.armadafleetcommand.com/afc/ ... highlight=

^ That was ur first strike. Then you got your second and third in this thread. Well, you're definitely never coming back here, not that you can read this though. :lol:

Don't go down that road, dude. You certainly won't like the results. For not only will the Admins come after you, us regular members will go on seek-and-destroy.

Well, seeing as this thread has served its purpose and helped a fellow modder, despite Mattym1985's ignorance of the rules and attacking that modder, this thread is now closed.
