Since I got them running on my Win 7, I've been playing them in stock form.
Even though Mods are great... I find I can still enjoy them stock.
lol its good that you still get enjoyment from the original game I play alot of A1 and I personaly dont like the stock game I find its to short, the ships look terrible and there is a poor selection compared to most mods But then again thats my opinion
I still play stock A2, very occasionally online at that.
Of course, part of the reason for that is that I know the tactics and strategy inside out, which makes it easy to program AI's worth playing for.
I didn't make it!
Well yes and no. I speend a lot of time refining aspects of my personal ship mods and this is done in a mostly stock install
