Re: HOW TO: Reduce the number of Palettes

if you have some time, could you explain procedure you used with GIMP maybe some images and details? thunderchero Right. Here's the procedure. Assuming we've fund the textures whose palettes we want to merge and have successfully extracted them from the stbof.res. Here I'm using cs__a.gif, cs__b.gi...

Re: HOW TO: Reduce the number of Palettes

After a bit (a lot) of googling I managed to do this with GIMP. You have to follow the exact same order and have to know how to work with the program, but it works.

EDIT: and don't tick trim the palette of the unused colours :P

Re: Crash logs and solutions

EDIT Note; UM5? if so it would be correct to use "i_t1_b.tga" for 1366 x 768, it has special code since 1024 used it already. Also you might want to read this new topic https://www.armadafleetcommand.com/onscreen/botf/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3557 I've been made! Yea I'm poking about UM5. Nothing for th...

Re: \\\-- Balance of Power (v1.2c released)--///

Yep. Well this certainly changes the gameplay a lot. You only bomb a system when there are very few OB guarding it. But if there are lots of OB guarding it, then you send in destroyers and TTs. This makes OB useful as it requires that the enemy really commit to taking the system. All in all this see...

Re: \\\-- Balance of Power (v1.2c released)--///

So... which ones are spy ships? Destroyers. I sent in a lot more than 15 and still got recked by orbitals. I guess that the only way to deal with them is to sacrifice 15 ships and send in the troop invasion. No more bombing the planets by cruisers :/ EDIT: Lesson learned. When enemy has 30 orbital b...

Re: \\\-- Balance of Power (v1.2c released)--///

That is true but I find it ridiculous that I can ram my entire fleet into Benzar and only kill 10 mil pop + 4 OB before my fleet gets wiped out. If OB are this strong then they should also cost a lot more.

Re: \\\-- Balance of Power (v1.2c released)--///

Ok.. I know it has been 2 years since last post, but I just tried this mod out. How is one supposed to bomb anything in this mod if 30 orbital batteries can take out 63 ships. (9 were destroyers, the rest were fleets of 2 kedons, 6 galors ad a hutet).

Re: Windows 10 problems/solutions please post them here

Hello. I have tried the Vodoo solution as it's the only one that kinda work for me. The problem is however that if I try to run Botf in Win 98/Me compatibility mode then Botf Instantly crashes when entering main menu. But otherwise I experience freezes, where the game locks up, and the sound keep re...
