as my original cd has been blanked by my f......-nero programm, i gotta get a new one. and i found that on the german ebay site they go for around 5 euros. thought i let you guys know as i saw complains about how expensive it is to get a copy in the US or GB
And how did you overwrite a non writable CD with a CD burner?
The only way I can see that you could have done that would be if it was on a rewritable CD.
Anyway, you might want to be aware that the german version is in german, and according to a few people I know that have the german version they say the german media files (ie ship voices etc) are really badly acted.
Which reminds me, Do you think it would be legal to create a mod to change the german media to english? The license dosen't forbid it so I am guessing you can do?
dont ask me how that rewriting happened. it was an original armada2 cd that was left in the cd burner cause i thought i had a blank one in it. my nero programm just dont work right.
and you are correct about the german files . but there are lots of mods around that change the media files into new (and english/klingon/whatever) voices - so i dont figure that as a real problem. if u collect such media files to release them as a complete "voiceover" for any mod - what should be wrong about it? it would be a big file i guess - but you could leave the intro movie out (i dont see someone wanting to hear THAT over and over.)
Freyr Which reminds me, Do you think it would be legal to create a mod to change the german media to english? The license dosen't forbid it so I am guessing you can do?
they way you would have to do it (get round it) would be a mod that replaces it with new actors and altered script, that way you wont infringe copy right.
paul, i dont get it: if u take the english voices from all the mods here - wouldnt that sum up for a pretty good exchange pack WITHOUT violating the copyright?

thats what I said, just dont port the original voices from the A2 disc ....... what dont you get ???
Or acquire it by fradulent means... Now I'm not saying to do this because[COLOR=slategray] i'm law abiding[/COLOR], but you may want to [COLOR=lime]test :naughty: [/COLOR]the download time for a certain torrent for the entire Armada2 game if you wish...... Edit: Oh and a certain variant of Nero recode can by-pass copyright software but delete it? I'm not so sure..... I'd say the disc was so badly damaged that nothing appears on it... It's like my a2 cd.. some gobshite (i.e my sister) deleted my a2 folder.. and uninstalled the game "by mistake" [COLOR=darkslateblue](how she did this is beyond me)..:confused: .[/COLOR] anyway long story short - I can't reinstall the game cos the disc is badly scratched but I can still slot it in the drive to play [COLOR=royalblue]fl[/COLOR][COLOR=royalblue]eetOps[/COLOR][COLOR=red]3[/COLOR]... [COLOR=black]WTF?[/COLOR] but I'm in the process of acquiring it by other means :deal:
Well to be honst I've no idea why Activision hasn't allowed the game to become freeware, or provided a low cost downloadable version.
I don't know either?:uhm: ANYTHING & EVERYTHING that is released nowadays always shows up somewhere online as a free download or even using peer-to-peer it's easy to get [COLOR=slategray](but that's shit)[/COLOR]

Do they even have the rights to do that now? Does anybody know off hand what the result of the lawsuit was?
Yomama, try copying it to the hard drive and then installing it from there, I have do that to play A1 because my disk is so totally decimated.
