Re: RC5 - BOTF All in one installer (Updated 1-9-2017)

I find that my interactions with UI lags just enough for me to notice the difference. Trackpad response isn't immediate and crisp, as though something were consuming most system resources. It is subtle but persistent, and just uncomfortable enough for me to prefer only running through DxWnd after a ...

Re: RC5 - BOTF All in one installer (Updated 1-9-2017)

I don't use dxwnd for bop.

I only use it for um when there's a big battle that would normally crash.

This is because the game seems to run sluggishly with dxwnd.

Re: How avoid economic crash?

Oh,

Scrapping ships for money works great in vanilla, but poorly in UM5. The best way to scrap a ship is to die gloriously in victory.

Re: How avoid economic crash?

Hi, * Strive for a large population. People provide free ship support as well as credits. Building colonies is good. Terraforming to boost growth rate is good. * Let colonies grow. Patience is required because they grow slower than you would like. Only spend credits on essential infrastructure or to...

Re: Mod suggestions for new player

Hi, 3 best mods, imo, are BOP, UM and UDM. I prefer BOP over the others, except for the problem of invasion being so difficult, because the design goal of having the factions feel different while maintaining a kind of balance has been achieved, though the faction balance is definitely not perfect. I...

Re: RC4 - BOTF All in one installer (closed)

*ponders* I'm tempted to ask more followup questions (next is about the file creation timestamp of the incorrect files), but probably not that helpful.

Oh well.

Re: RC4 - BOTF All in one installer (closed)

Update the GUI error that Ovarwa reported is very puzzling, I can not explain why those files are being installed. (issue goes beyond BOP and was also present in RC3) When I originally added ability to install multiple mods in single execution I feared errors like this one. I plan to keep exploring...

Re: RC4 - BOTF All in one installer (updated 12-13-2016)

verified that bop from multi-installer upgrades Cardassian Cruiser 1 to 2 properly. RC3 does not do this properly. Clarification.... Multi-installer: Cruiser1 on the map or produced the same turn as the last tech is researched upgrades successfully to Cruiser2. But Cruiser1 in production queue rema...

Re: RC4 - BOTF All in one installer (updated 12-13-2016)

Hi, Thank you Ovarwa for your detailed report, It's the least I can do. You (and others) have put so much work into BOTF over the years. An hour or so of my time spent testing and reporting is a small thing. FWIW, another data point that might be helpful: When I installed from RC3 (and had the Carda...

Re: RC4 - BOTF All in one installer (updated 12-13-2016)

Hi, Right now nothing is installed. I went back to the multi-installer to verify that I wasn't imagining things. (Verified that music does stop when I escape to desktop. Not yet verified that a Cruiser 1 upgrades properly to a Cruiser2 when starting at Tech2.) When I had the UDM issue, the following...

Re: RC4 - BOTF All in one installer (updated 12-13-2016)

Hi,

That looks the same as yours. I expected that: Had the assets been corrupted, I would expect BOP to have problems even on its own. I suspect some other dependency. Perhaps vanilla botf needs to be installed?

Anyway,

Ken

Re: RC4 - BOTF All in one installer (updated 12-13-2016)

Ok, First I uninstalled everything except BOP and tools. This did not help. Then I uninstalled BOP and tools, and reinstalled just BOP and tools. At this point, BOPL starts up correctly, without assets from UDM. (Windows key to desktop of course leaves music playing.) I haven't tried to play a game,...

Re: RC4 - BOTF All in one installer (updated 12-13-2016)

Hi, I will have to download RC4 since RC3 is clearly not working properly for me. Hi Ovarwa, just wondering if you had time to test RC4? Other testers, I was Just wondering if any other members have experienced similar problems/issues that Ovarwa experienced with Balance of Power or any other mod? I...
