Re: How to guarantee maximum minor races?

to guarantee max minors requires more systems. but this causes longer turn time. so it is a catch 22

but even with more systems it is still random placement and will only get 28 - 30 minors.

Re: Suicidal System (UDML)

this could just be a corrupt saved game. And I doubt if it is fixable from your description.

note; this section is more for general install issues, not mod related issues and should have been posted here

Re: Outposts and starbases...

removing upgrades (auto upgrade) has been done on a few mods and may be the best way, as for AI it seems to only build bases when they need protection, feel threatened or enemy system very close. (this is why smaller maps they tend to build more bases). but no code has been found I know of to get AI...

Re: Exe for UDML Vanished and Reinstall Error

You must be lucky because it just gutted another critical component of the game and put it in the virus chest. I'm sending a report to avast. It seems like it may be happening during boot time scans or something because each time the game worked just fine until after my computer was shut down and r...

Re: A peculiar modding issue...

Hi again, I thought about it a little more and check these also. 1. in right lower corner of start up screen does the version match the registry you added? 2. check all installed versions crash logs. also if the stbof.res and trek.exe are exact same and one works and other does not your mod is not b...

Re: A peculiar modding issue...

yeah it is a strange issue since it works on one system but not other system, plus other installed versions work. as a test to check your mod install path, back up your files then copy stbof.res and trek.exe from vanilla to your mod folder and test. note; for best test results edit the trek.exe as d...

Re: A peculiar modding issue...

MPM was only an example. but when you creating your mod folder, I suggest to copy all files from all in one vanilla, then replace stbof.res and trek.exe from your mod. (and any other edited files english.snd and videos)

also make sure stbof.ini on line "3D=SOFTWARE"

Re: Exe for UDML Vanished and Reinstall Error

update;

after 3 hours formatting and reinstalling windows and avast on test system. I installed/played BOTF and all mods without any issues.

So I have no idea why avast quarantined files your system.

Re: Exe for UDML Vanished and Reinstall Error

Note; tools must be installed first for DxWnd to work properly. so you will need to uninstall any version installed before tools were installed. as for avast, I will start testing again and submitting files as false positives. I wish Avast would test files more, but they would rather just block any ...

Re: A peculiar modding issue...

Hi jonesie85two, Welcome back, first are you using the "All in one" installer? And to be clear, only your mod on your main system does not work and all other mods work? One thing you might want to check out is this post on how to setup a personal mod. https://www.armadafleetcommand.com/onscreen/botf...

Re: Exe for UDML Vanished and Reinstall Error

After a previous issue with the tools folder I ended up having to just install everything under a new folder so it would stop telling me that it can't rename something that didn't exist. what issue with tools folder? depending on what file name you are re-naming this could prevent game from running...
