My File Front and Armada II Files Rants and Complaints:

I don’t take kindly to being banded for two whole weeks, its actually wrong and really mean to have done that when all I’ve done was wanting to get to a site that I was told to go to by another member here all because I wanted some files that aren’t featured on this site but are on MSFC (Majestic’s Sci-Fi Central). Well first I hate that someone lied and said the files that I wanted there could be here and they aren’t, two I hate that no one understands that I just want a few files from a site that has registration locked by the sites administrator, which I can prove with spoiler screen captures. To make matters worse I can get to the homepage of that site but I can’t get files and I can’t register but I’ve noticed a section on the side right on that page that welcomed one of the site’s newest members, now that is JUST PLAIN RUDE AND WRONG THAT SOME CAN REGISTER WELL OTHERS CAN’T. THAT SITE SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN FOR THAT REASON BECAUSE THEY AREN”T BEING FAIR AND ALSO PEOPLE HERE ARE SENDING PEOPLE TO THAT SITE. This is what I got after clicking on the Vulcan Full Race on MSFC to download the file:

This is what I’ve been getting after clicking on the registering link on MSFC, now this isn’t fair, is wrong and immoral to do when I clearly can see that that site has gotten new members well I’ve been trying for weeks to no prevail to register for that site. For the two weeks of my banning from these forums I’ve tried to register for MSFC.

Only nice thing I can think of for MSFC is if I was to leave the ships that I can see on the homepage that I want to download that someone kindly downloads them and sends them to me, their creators upload them here, or fix their site so anyone can get files there for I bet there are files there that I can’t see that I might possibly want to try out. Thank you in advance if you’ll do that. Because of this uncalled for and unwarranted banning, I had problems with my game that I couldn’t take care of on my own so I had no choice to uninstall and reinstall my game for a one hundredth fifteenth time and that makes me really mad when I’ve been trying to create the most Ultimate Mod this site and community has ever seen. True I may not have created any ships, stations, or weapons here, but not everyone has the software, the money, or the tools to do such a thing. That’s the case for me and my problems with my game. The newest problem that I had that forced me to have to uninstall my game all has to do with the Reman Rebellion Full Race Mod. I installed this mod and all its patches and from the beginning of using it, randomly well selecting different stations the game would crash to the desktop. It started with selecting the Reman’s First Research Station, then it happened with the Reman’s First Shipyard, never have I been able to build the second Research Station or Advanced Shipyard. These crashes happen randomly for when it happened the first time, I had and was using the first shipyard just fine, then it happened when again. It wasn’t just happening with the Reman Rebellion Full Race Mod, after installing that mod; the game would randomly crash when I played any race. It even happened after a while well I did nothing and had the AI just attack me, my starbase and starting unit ship for the Instant Action game made it possible to defend my base if attacked but that never really occurred, about 5 – 10 minutes of doing nothing but the AI playing, the game would crash to the desk top. So as I said the game randomly crashes anytime before I can even build the Advanced Shipyard of any race. It always happens when I select a station to do something like build or research, it is randomly though like one time it could be the shipyard, next time playing the game; it could be a research station, it even happens with the AI playing and me as the player doing nothing at all but letting the game run. Has this happened to anyone before? Well because of my banning for 2 weeks, since the last time I was on, I had no choice but as I said reinstall my game and start my Star Trek Armada II Ultimate All Races Mod over again but this time I’ve started my Federation side first (my biggest side) and I’ve also set it that I’ve made a total of 11 saved folders to create backups, 10 for each of the races that are being used and a 11th folder is to put the whole mod together as one full complete mod for beta testing fully. Doing it like this I feel will narrow down some of the errors and set it so the problems involving each individual race can be found, lastly I’ll be testing the extra maps I’m going to add, some of which are good since I tried them before others I deleted the download and the saved files because they crashed the game on loading. The only other problem I have has to do with the ship pictured here in this spoiler, its nothing much except this USS Enterprise NCC 1701-E X Refit appears as if its cloaked when its actually not cloaked. How do I fix this?

That’s it, that’s all the rants and complaints I have, please don’t make me have more. Thank you.

I'll cheer up the moment my Vulcans aren't my weakest race and I can get access to a modders site I know others are able to register for and use but no matter what computer I use, I can't get on to along with about 100 other people I go to college with who tried it on their personal computers to help me out with this problem of not being able to get files or register on MSFC and it being locked to new registering and not being able to download files without being registered. Its all wrong, mean and just plain rude to do that. This is the last time I want to say anything about it, SOMEONE NEEDS TO FIX THAT SITE by allowing new people to register or non-members to download files. Its logical and respectful to all memebers of the Star Trek and Armada I & II community. Thank you.

MSFC is funded in toto by Majest. It is his site. Because he puts up the cash for it out of his own pocket, he gets to decide what goes on there. I am sure as soon as things improve he will reopen the site for new members and downloads. He has a family to support. Real Life issues can and must always take precedence over any game. Like a lot of us, he has had to make some choices based upon the downturn in the world economy. Please respect the fact he placed the needs of his family above the needs of people who play a nine year old PC game. I really doubt you will understand this because of your past posts but I felt compelled to try. As to "making" you have any more rants and complaints about anything here, from where I sit everything which has happened to you has been entirely self inflicted. I strongly suspect others see this the same way. Please do not use anything I have released publicly in any mod you are going to release publicly. This is the only time I will acknowledge your return and I refuse to have any further contact of any type with you. I really hope you find what you are looking for, but I do not think it will be here.

Nothing but the files not working for downloading at the moment, I found some new ones I would like to add to my Star Trek Armada II Ultimate All Races Mod. The other problem is that some of the other members here don't really act like a community and make it seem that the people using their mods are the ones making the mistakes but when you can't edit a SOD file and what you build in a shipyard or by a construction ship has the white box with a red bug on it, isn't the fault of the person using the file and then there's files here like some of the Apocolapyse files that the ODF's aren't complete and there's no techtree, or sprites information to add. Try to add it yourself with little knowledge of that and the item added doesn't even appear in game to build, then the Westwards Big Book Of Modding is actually way to confusing, I tried using it and had no choice but to uninstall my game, that's why I had to do that so many times. I just don't see people acting as a community here and downgrading other members and making them, specially me, feel like all the errors I expereince to be my fault. Well I'm saying this, I've added over a hundred ships and stations to my game with almost 25 of them having issues that cause crashing (ODF errors to files I didn't edit or anything) and just following the creator's Read-Me Instructions and the ship or station not even showing up to be built :( It makes me disappointed in a community that should do better, I myslef wouldn't release a mod till it doesn't crash the game, test it many times in the game and have a read-me file that even a first time modder could understand. :)

I can tell you that even though I can't register to MSFC I can still see tha homepage and a few new users have actually registered but there are lots of people who can't. I haven't done anything to cause my issues that are happening in my game. I've followed the read-me files complete as the creators of each mod wrote. I used their files, I don't make changes till after I've tested what they created and if it works then I add weapons to the ship or station. And Thunderfoot006, how come your mods are actually ones of the few that I have that do work perfectly from the beginning? If I can't use your mods IN MY RELEASE YOU"LL HAVE RUINED MY WHOLE MOD AND I CAN"T ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN. If the Read-Me's to the mods I've use already give permission for use of the mods in question, then I using them for permission was already given in advance and the proof of that will be shown in the Read-Me files that I include of the mods that I've used.

Since Filefront had its make over there are a few hicups here and there but these should be sorted within a couple of days mate, all downloads should be back to normal... try and survive until then...

have you tried searching the file name on the Filefront homepage direct, that should work?

www.filefront.com and search with the mod(s)/file(s) name(s) in the search bar

if not just man it out until everything is running smooth as silk!

No files are showing up like that and downloading was working earlier for me at my college and also the evening of the change, everything was fine until at about 5:00 PM EST. I can confirm everything was running as smooth as silk Wednesday, and earlier today (Thursday). Now its not, the IT techs at my college would suggest to keep the changes made Wednesday that were working fine, just a suggestion though.
