BIG NEWS! Many old Trek games (including Armada1&2) coming to GoG!

Post by Blake00 »

Hey guys! Thought I share the news here for people if they don't already know about it but GoG and Activision have finally teamed up to re-release all their old Trek games that have been sitting in limbo for nearly 20 years including Armada 1 and Armada 2!!!

In the case of Armada 2 I'm particularly excited as hopefully they'll update it to support modern resolutions! I've posted here before about how you can play Armada 1 in HD thanks to the fan patch but not Armada 2 (unless you use some 3rd party mods for Fleet Ops which don't fully recreate the experience).

Of course there's still no sign of any of the Microprose Trek games like BOTF appearing sadly but nevertheless this is good news!

https://www.gog.com/partner/startrek

Here's the full list:
Star Trek: Armada
Star Trek: Armada II
Star Trek: Away Team
Star Trek: Bridge Commander
Star Trek: Voyager – Elite Force
Star Trek: Elite Force II
Star Trek: Hidden Evil
Star Trek: Invasion
Star Trek: Starfleet Command III

Win 7/8/10 support is really nice for those old games. GOG usually gets this done right where Steam can't be bothered.

With Steam it's just basically the original files with bare-minimum to remove the need for CD's, whereas GOG is about making them playable. I know as I have Republic Commando through steam and it just... doesn't run.

Was sad to hear that the GoG Armada 2 still doesn't support modern resolutions properly. I was really hoping they'd fix that but oh well.

Resolution upscaling like AMDs new RSR might work. Although, it might look wonky, esp. the UI.

Would be interesting to see.. but I'm not sure if any type of clever upscaling truly substitutes for true 1:1 resolution with your monitor. Armada 2 in true 1080P or 4K would be so nice.

I am working on mods in Armada 2. I got a planet moves in the game which was cool but it was hard because it by a transwarp (it don't transwarp but move at warp drive when press the button). Now I am try a moving trading station with a wornhole but I haved found the bug that makes it work yet. So I might need help on it!
moving planet lol :shock:
