What kind of armada do you have? The reason I included it in this forum is because it will possible help people choose which version to mod.
I have both versions, but I haven't played A1 for a long time because of the problems it has under windows 2000/XP. But there are a lot of things, such as AI, that I liked better about A1.
I only play A2 because it is in almost all matters better then A1.
I've got both, but I have strong issues with the A1 interface, so I mostly play A2
Me 2- I have both but only play 2 now.
