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

Hi, I tested both saves games and it looks like you have gotten very unlucky to get same bug in 2 back to back games. I would suggest to reinstall BOP, but since you already stated you plan on installing RC4... just wondering did you have a saved game before tech upgrade? Sadly, botf does not retain...

These don't compress very much.

Please let me know if you want anything else.

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

Hi, Yes. Scenario: I attempted to duplicate your error without success, so it looks like random bug unless you have been able to duplicate error in different game. I have a duplicate, but both are from the same download of RC3. Case 1: BOPL with one of the high res installs. 40x30 map. (medium) Case...

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

Hi, I guess I'm confused though: I've played lots of BoP, but never had that problem before. Ships upgraded normally, though speed increases did not take effect immediately. this will only happen if certain conditions are meet, did you have any other cruiser I built (present on map) prior to upgradi...

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

Hi, Not sure if I should report this here or in a BoP thread. But I downloaded RC3 just before you posted RC4, and then tried to run BoP installed from RC3. Everything worked fine... until I reached a tech where my Cruiser I would normally have upgraded into a Cruiser II. This did not happen, nor th...

Re: Ultimate Mod 5 v2.5 1024 (Updated 15/2/16)

Hi,

Without dxwnd, I did notice that using different commands would cause the battle to crash in different places, and sometimes not at all.

Possibly not relevant, but.

Anyway,

Ken

Re: Ultimate Mod 5 v2.5 1024 (Updated 15/2/16)

Hi, I have to take a gaming hiatus for a few weeks, but some thoughts until I can resume: * I haven't tried playing Dominion yet, so don't yet know if they have some secret advantage that the AI cannot use to compensate for their big and obvious disadvantages. * Because the ships and buildings are m...

Re: Ultimate Mod 5 v2.5 1024 (Updated 15/2/16)

Hi, Thoughts so far: * Subatomic Simulators are almost always worthless, due to the very low base science production. Spending 80 Energy for 20% local science is usually a net loss, even discounting the expense of building the thing. This gets worse as tech increases. * I'm not sure if growth rates ...

Re: Ultimate Mod 5 v2.5 1024 (Updated 15/2/16)

So,

DxWnd solves this, but must be run as admin. The graphics in combat are a bit jumpy, but no crash.

*lol* I thing this game demonstrates the value of IP. It's old, cranky and was never that good a game... but the Star Trek IP intangibles make a difference.

Anyway,

Ken

Re: Ultimate Mod 5 v2.5 1024 (Updated 15/2/16)

Hmm,

Spoken too soon.

Combat with enough ships crashes.

Windows 7
Run as admin
Tried various compatibility modes
Full screen

:/

Re: Ultimate Mod 5 v2.5 1024 (Updated 15/2/16)

FWIW, Benzites with 1055 population. 2M and 1M+ and some other planets. I just noticed that this was updated in 2016. On my first game. It plays very differently from BOP (let alone vanilla, which I have not touched in at least a decade.) Thoughts so far: * Minor races are even more awesome to acqui...

Re: Taskforce changes orders on it's own?

I have seen this issue sometimes (ships returning to the start point instead of continuing towards the destination) and noticed that it may happen after loading a saved game. probably some data gets lost in the save/load procedure. I play Feds, Rom and klingons, i've seen it with all, although very...
