Stability: 10
Creativity: 10

Overall Rating: 10

Description:
Finally the "STA2 Patch Project" has found its way to Armada2Files. This is a definite must-download for all Amrada 2 players, as it introduces many fixes and new features (especially for modders).

Main features:

- the popular MVAM problem has been solved (I hope that we see a working Prometheus soon cool )

- "maxBuildableNumber" ODF command (forces the player to have only a certain number of a ship class or station)
- better exception catching engine (reports bugs to FO team)
- game updater in the main menu
- many bug fixes
- your game is still compatible to 1.1 patched versions online
- makes A2 running on Windows Vista

So what are you waiting for? Get this thing ASAP! Rock

Star Trek Armada II Patch Project
Copyright (C) 2007-2008 Fleet Operations Development Team
http://www.fleetops.net/

What is it?
-----------
The Star Trek: Armada II Patch 1.2 Project is an unofficial patch made by the developers of the Fleet Operations total conversion for Star Trek Armada II.
It is meant as a patch for every Armada II installation, despite of it is stock or has been modded. It patches serveral bugs that were not fixed with the latest official 2002 release of Patch 1.1. More and more reports of people not being able to play Armada 2 coming up as today people are using much more enhanced software and hardware than 5 years ago. The developers of Armada 2 targeted Windows 98 and partly Windows 2000 as plattform.

The Patch 1.2 Project offers mod developers several new features. An overview can be found here: www.fleetops.net/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,3/topic,3545.0/

What is it not?
---------------
The patch project does not provide new textures sounds or anything else that is related to change the game experience. Patch 1.2 is fully backwards compatible with Armada 2 Patch 1.1. That means, you will be able to play together with people still using patch 1.1, while having the advantages of the Patch 1.2 Project.

The "Roadmap"
-------------
The first releases of Patch 1.2 are intended to fix Armada 2's bugs. Later version will feature full widescreen support and new enhancements for mod developers.

Who should install Patch 1.2?
-----------------------------
Everyone playing Star Trek Armada II.

Fleet Operations players do not require to install this patch. An enhanced version of that patch is included in Fleet Operations 3.0 final.

This could work quite well for my own mod, especially with the MVAM function. Fighters and hangars, excellent. Looks like I have a bit of learning to do now lol.

I started working on a MVAM almost as soon as I got the patch. I am about 80% done, and it is actually playable at this point (Missing wireframes, some sounds, and one build button...LOL). Since I am no modeler I had to use another Prometheus and I ended up using Gonwee's. I basically only need his permission and it will be up, anyone know how I can reach him?

My biggest concern is I have NanoFX installed on my modded version. Will the patch overwrite its files and my modded files?

I could have sworn the Fleet Operations mod by Doca Cola and his team was pulled from this site because it used this. Not that Im complaining, but does this mean fleet ops will be back on the site? Maybe the new FO V3 even? Thatd be cool. Oh, btw does this patch have the widescreen support? or is that the next version?

Thanks alot Doca, you Optec and the rest of your team do wonderful work.

We can host this because of changes the team have made in this release.

We can't host the historic FO releases (v1/2) but I understand that the future versions will incorporate these changes. If that is the case we will be able to host them.

I don't know if it' me or what, but I know I done enough editing/modding to see if the 'little mistakes' are not there(carefully checking for all the 'missing quotation marks' and sorts), but this is REALLY bothering me: Has anyone been having problem(s) adding NEW MODS to their game once this PATCH in in? I was able to get the Prometheus & Seperating Sovereign class mod in the game, but with MAJOR changes in my game version(and some editing). Yet, it takes WAY TOO craziness to do so and just now adding the Species 8472 BatlleCruiser mod(recently), I'm still having the SAME CRASH problem and I checked that mod's files too. So, again has anyone been experiencing this or is it just ME? Thanks for any kind of helpful info. confused

I've reported this on the fleetops website but none of the devs seem to care...

Basically, if I run KA2 with the patch on, it immediately has an error in uxtheme.dll. If I remove the patch it works fine. This happens the same on a stock A2 installation.

Any ideas?

I found the prob and fixed it- 1.2.5 gives the Asynchronous mouse on/off switch. 10/10-Thanks to this patch my computer is now officially a gaming computer as this was the first old game of mine to work

This patch has also stablized the Babylon 5 mod, times of old it would crash every 2-3 hours, now it runs real smooth.Hmmm Donut!'s on me

I would like to inform people that the "better exception catching engine (reports bugs to FO team)" in fact reports a lot of data on your computer beyond a2 to FLOPS, including installed programms. this is a computer security relevant feature which could be described as a sort of spyware. I would like to be able to turn off in the next version. I will not install this untill then..

look closer, the list contains currently running programs, not installed programs which actually is quite relevant if armada crashes smile. btw. the crash reporter is absolutely optional, just click the CLOSE instead of the SEND button and no crash report is sent to me, thats your thing, i don't really care. wink

I had previously played armada 2 on this pc and for some reason, the game will no longer start at all. It repeatedly crashes and once gave an "out of memory error". While I realize that people may no longer be working on this, does anyone have a reason why it it would no longer be working on Win 7 64 if nothing has changed?
