That is about right for that system, seeing as I get the slowdown at turn 400ish on my Athlon 2500+ (OC'd to 2.5Ghz) with 1GB RAM and tons of HD space. Pagefile is only really necessary when you run out of RAM and even then you generally won't need much. 2GB is more than enough :) The biggest proble...

Why do you think I run Server 2008 instead of Vista and Server 2003 (with a patch to make it think its XP) instead of XP. I can install and run pretty much anything I like on both platforms with little to no hassle. Server 2003 hasn't needed a hotfix in months (since March I think) and XP is still g...

Same thing as BotF, normally its a CD-Check that disables the Single Player section of the game.

Or check GCW for a No-CD crack (no I am not advocating warez...)

That Titan looks good. Sort of an interim between the Ambassador and the Galaxy (gotta love Stabilo Swann marker nacelles :P ) Back to geek mode: Prometheus is similar in firepower to a Sovereign, but only a little larger than an Intrepid, which give it the class of Escort or possibly Heavy Destroye...

You need to use Daemon Tools to mount an image of the BotF CD (or just run the game with the CD in the drive).

I was wondering, has anyone heard of any feedback on how vista gets on with multiplayer at all? I'm in the middle of getting a new pc built as the old warhorse has given up and i'm getting Vista installed for it. So i figure i'd swat up on how peeps have gotten round getting the game on vista befor...

Oblivion, I must commend you for replying in such a calm and polite way. Most people would let it rip when replying to a comment like that. Well done. I believe that violence begets violence, so if you don't bite and return with a smile then it diffuses a potential situation. @ Liteview1701 - No pr...

I think that barring the DS9 dodgy's the Sabre and the steamrunner are the worst. The Nebula I hate because I like the flow of the Galaxy and the Nebula ruins it. But it isn't a terrible ship. The Constellation is just cool, the first dreadnought, but still not an overpowered ship (like the Promethe...

Err I have never met you before liteview1701. Never spoken to you on Armada Fleet Command and I have never to my knowledge insulted you. I'll not hold a grudge as you thought it was another guy, but believe me you can search all my posts here to check if I have flamed anyone let alone someone I don'...

And everyone forgets to mention the ubiquitous Steamrunner, which by my view even trumps the Curry and the Yeager (though the Yeager is quite good if you ignore the Marquis Raider bit...) As kitbashes go that disgusting 3 nacelle Excelsior should be banned along with that stupid Elkins. The Elkins w...

It seems there was errors with the high end 8xxx series graphics cards (unless you got the G92 chipped ones) so if you have those expect graphical lag. As for turn lag its RAM and Pagefile dependant. If you have 1GB of ram expect up to 400 turns before lag. If you have more then no worries. Currentl...

Just a little constructive criticism. If you are going to make a model like that (from the mirror universe I believe) at least make sure you have the model symetrical. The engineering deck is not in line with the centre of the saucer, the blue dish is not centred on the engineering deck, and the sup...

Yes Nova and Defiant are technically limited in range (less so for the Nova due to its less powerful yet more efficient Warp Core). However I do believe that if they started refitting with transwarp drives these two ships would prove invaluable. The Nova can scout as a science vessel (with teeth) to...

wow glad I never got round to upgrading the 65 factories on Trill then! Only had like 40 on Romulus (though it was pumping out ships so fast due to fanatic loyalty).

Also Trill has a pop cap of 790 is that normal? I don't mind but it does make it a rather overpowered system. (Using UM Beta 4)

I was thinking from a purely combative viewpoint (which ST is actually mainly about ironically). I prefer to neutralise situations rather than inflame them which to me points to using cloaking devices and generally not announcing my activities if not needed. When I need a show of power I would call ...
