I really must live a charmed life, as I can't recall ever having major problems downloading BOTF mods/tools/installers the way so many folks here seem to. Guess I'm just lucky?

This only started 10 days ago, before that we averaged 17GB - 30GB per day, but the last 10 days we are averaging 80GB - 124GB per day. :shock:

I suspect the All in One download link has been posted somewhere on a different star trek gaming forum and this is causing increased demand.

I'm posting just to say that I have downloaded and installed this All-In-One and successfully installed BOTF in CrossOver, running on my MacBook Pro. BOTF (vanilla version) works very well.

Is there any place where I can find a description of the various mods? I know there used to be, when the mods needed to be downloaded individually. Thanks for this.

Thanks for the info on the mod descriptions.

I installed without DxWnd. I had installed BOTF previously on CrossOver. It ran very well without DxWnd. When I tried installing BOTF on a Windows 10 system, then I needed DxWnd. It worked well in that context.

When I try to install All In One (full installation) on Windows 10, the setup wizard says a second after I clicked on "Install" that it has finished the installation, but the botf folder is empty.

you must select component to install on component page and any options you want for those components.

Note; I have added it to my list of possible improvements. change "Full Installation" text to "Nothing Selected"

Wow, the installation took long, but I'm glad to see that the mods running perfectly fine. :smile:

yes if you installed everything it does take a long time, but if you divide how long it took by 26, install time per mod is quicker than it was before.

I think this all-in-one installer is great!

I don't know about anyone else, but I don't think anyone these days really uses 800 x 600 for a resolution. I would be in full support as a community member to remove all 800 x 600 textures and just have the 1024 textures as the minimum install (or whatever the consensus from the community might be) as part of the installer process. In fact, I'd be in full support of just having the 1080 as the default or at least as an option.

most would agree with you, but I try to respect the original creator of mods. So if mod was released at higher resolution no 800 x 600 version is available. example; Ultimate mod 5 and AFC mod start as released at 1024 x 768.

sorry you are having this issue. it sounds like uninstall issue or files were removed/deleted manually.

if everything is uninstalled as you say, You need to remove some left over registries.

open "regedit.exe" in C:\windows folder.
find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microprose (64 Bit systems)
find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microprose (32 Bit systems)
select the "microprose" folder on left and right click, from menu select delete and confirm deletion.

after that you should be able to run installer
Thanks for posting. worked for me.

Why did you do this? Its just silly you're forcing us to download everything! We used to be able to download what we need and want! Now we have a massive file that we have to download while uninstalling everything we had before thats not fair. Not to mention constant issues with downloading this file I along with others simply can not download it keeps failing. I dont want babylon 5 i dont want stargate are any of the others for that matter I simply wanted the dominion mod because the ferengi are ridiculous as a major power. Instead I have lost everything I had 4 mods ive uninstalled them there gone and i cant download this all in 1 crap. There was nothing wrong with the old system. If you wanted to create a single download for all the mods then no problem but at least keep the individual mods available. Forcing us to download everything when the majority of it is not wanted is not right. Not to mention many of us have now lost everything and continue to be unable to play the game because of this of download.
#please return the option of the individual mods

Actually, you're *not* forced to install every mod. We can pick & choose which ones we want.

not until after you have downloaded the file which is great unless of course the gigantic file can not be downloaded
