for those that dont wanna wait until submission is completed(ive sent it via yousendit and via pm to ssa..)here's my version of an update.
freyr i used your weapon text's cause there are none better.I would have been waisting my time.credits are given.
my christmas gift to the sta2 community
i removed my hacked sods..couldnt get em working online correctly.so if you have any hacked sods and plan to play online..return to the originals and just add this update and youre good to go.
is this just a texture up date?
Curtis, I got your PM, and have downloaded the file, but what on earth is it? It wont open for starters...
what? it is a auto install of my updates created with winrar. SFX..damn i spent 3 hours uploading that...
i need someone with broadband who wont mind testing the download to see if they get the same errors.if,i will have to re upload.
no it isnt only a texture update,it has new team colors for the multi and single player missions,all font are now in hi resolution color..not just white..all race icons are now hi res color...much more as well.
Well, it didn't have an extention. After adding ".rar" to the file, I was able to open it. The SFX extention didnt work right. Also note, that your path is the "C" drive. Not all people put their Armada(s) on their "C"drive.
Hi, it opened for me without any probs.
Master Syf;3445570that your path is the "C" drive. Not all people put their Armada(s) on their "C"drive.
Thats right, I put pretty much nothing on my C (150GB) drive. I don't want to clog up my main drive with junk (slows down the PC) so I use by 110GB E drive for pretty much everything including Armada.
well i see what the prob is,the ext. should be .exe as its a self extracting rar build.and yeah i wasnt sure how to set the C: thing..so i just went with default drive option.anyway it will let you change it.I'll re-up tonight as a standard .zip file so people can put it where they want.
my armada II modding may be done for a bit..i had a power surge that killed my graphics card i used to play the game..now im stuck on a pitiful backup stb velocity 128 agp..which has no agp or direct 3d accelration features...oddly for an agp card..and i cant afford another card just yet so..this will be it for the immediate future.
Sorry to hear that. It's terrible when that happens. I hate to see this kill your modding. If you check with Geeks, then you should find some low priced Video cards. That's where I get alot of my stuff when I'm looking for cheap replacement parts (No, I do not work for/with them or nothing like that, just offering some pointers. This is not advertising. I've never had a problem with them, or the used/refurb'd parts).
ok i think this should fix the update file that was giving some people errors
i cant say for sure whether some pc's that might be using vista 64 bit will or will not have errors.the file is a zipped up winrar sfx exec with the update set to be installed to default sta directory or one of your chosing.
let me know how it works.
