I re-installed the game a week ago with the latest updates of the multi-installer and the Dominion mod and no problems or virus warnings. :D

Urgent! Avast found virus in game!

Sorry to be the messenger of bad news but recently my Avast anti-virus program found viruses in some BOTF files. The files infected were: Botf-102-Wk-XP-9x-eng C:botf\English.res C:botf\German.res C:botf C:botf\UDM Cbotf\UDML The strange thing is that I have had those files installed since November ...

I haven't ran into the Species since that encounter I wrote about earlier so I haven't been able to test any of the strategies suggested here. But I will try to find the best possible way to take it out. :)

I think I'll try something to take them out. Cheating is not that fun, it's more fun to overcome the challenge. By the way, I still have that game saved so I might re-start it and try to come up with something. Most of the ships I did throw in were Destroyer III's. I'm not sure if a fleet with other...

How do I kill Species 8472?

Species 8472 is getting on my nerves. Two of them showed up in my recent game (I'm playing the Ultimate Dominion Mod) and started to wipe out my outposts and the ships I had in habited areas of my Federation Empire. After throwing in 25 ships against one of them and losing them all, I had to move th...

If there were to be a new Delta Quadrant mod I'd make the Borg as one of the major powers rather than a random event as they're arguably the biggest force in the quadrant. The Swarm would make for a good random IMO. The model could be of a dozen of their ships in battle and they turn up randomly an...

Suggestions for an update of the Delta Quadrant Mod

A few days ago, after downloading the Multi Installer and the excellent Ultimate Dominion Mod (latest version), I also decided to test the Delta Quadrant Mod. Since I'm a bit of a Voyager fan, I thought it would be intersting with a Delta Quadrant Mod too. Unfortunately it crashed after only 10 minu...

^^ I will start a thread with some suggestions for an update of the Delta Quadrant Mod. As for the Ultimate Dominion Mod, I've been playing that one for over 520 turns now and my only complaint is that the game gets veeeeeeeery slow in the long run. OK, I'm using an old computer now, due to some rep...

As for the Dominon Mod, it works fine so far. I've just started the game and played about 100 turns but so far no bugs or problems.However, I get a feeling that Species 8472 has become more dangerous. Right now it's terrorizing my empire, constantly wiping out my fleet and I can't kill it or scare ...

I know there are alot, and think there are also plugins for firefox and have read IE has this functionality included. :) Thanks for the tip. I used a download manager a...

I'm having serious problems with downloading the Multi Installer. I tried twice this evening and both were unsuccessful. I realized immediately that with my crappy broadband, it would take a long time to download this mammoth file. The problem is that the system seem to be shutting down before Ihave...

A question about this version: Do I have to install Joker's patch before installing this version of the UDM?

And what about that Multi installer which obviously should be installed before installing the mod.

Species 8472 and the Calamarian

I've been playing BOTF with the Dominion Mod for some time and I have some questions. 1. How do I kill off Species 8472. It's terrorizing my Maxia beta system. Everytime I sent some colony ship or troop transport to that area, Species 8472 attacks and wipe them out. If I send some escort ship, they ...
