:beaming:I boot up Armada 2, set up my game, start playing, and in exactly 30 min. EVERY texture dissapears! Every ship, station, celestial body, background, even the tool bar just compleatly turns white. How do I fix this? :help:
sounds like a virus or software conflict........
I can't say I've ever had a problem of textures suddenly vanishing whilst half way through game. This is a new one for me. Do you have any MOD's installed?

Yes! I almost allways have some MOD installed on my games. But this will even happen on a non MODed Armada 2!

But still, It confused me that the .tga files (for the textures) are there for some of the game, then suddenly vanish. I would suggest asking the creators of the MOD's or something... Which MOD's do you have installed?
Really not sure what's causing it, but I've gotten a similar bug. Sometimes, though I don't think it's happened on an UNmoded game, some of the textures will suddenly go bad. I don't remember them going all white (maybe) but normal textures seem to be switched out with random other textures. For instance, last night (while play testing a Dominion/Breen mod) some (or all) of the Breen textures suddenly all went to something else (Borg, maybe?). I'm not sure but I've seen something like it on other occasions. I do remember two (more specific) bugs though: 1) In the same night, all the Dominion ships suddenly went very dark (like mirror universe EVIL dark) with different textures, that still looked like they belonged on those models! I know there're no other textures designated for those ships but if I had to guess, the game might've decided to apply an unknown texture to all those models. I didn't notice if it affected the stations. 2) In the same game, the Borg Ship Upgrade Facility suddenly switched to what looked like a Cardasian station texture. Weird, huh? Don't know what's causing it, but I have two theories: 1) It could be something in relation with the Bumpmapping graphics setting in the options menu. This is a known issue where some graphics cards need Bumpmapping turned off to properly display 3D models/textures. 2) It could be some bug included in a specific mod (or the game's hard coded to recognize only the stock textures so new ones are subject to corruption). Tracking down a bug like that could be very difficult. Also, it seems to happen when there's lots of action going on, accompanied by intermittent game freezes that seem to occur randomly for a few seconds at a time. Like 8 fleets going at each other in high game speed. I cannot confirm if this bug occurs on lower settings. There IS a solution, however: Just exit to the options menu and then resume... this usually (or always) fixes it for me. If that doesn't work, try going into the options/graphics menu and changing the settings. Then go back to the game to see if they're fixed. If that doesn't work, I can only suggest an intensive search for the problem file(s) or a reinstall.
td_randeven the tool bar just compleatly turns white
By toolbar, do you mean the GUI? What about the button pallet?
Sounds like some kind of overflow corruption. Do you have the latest video drivers and windows updates? Windows XP?
You asking me, or td_rand?
I only ever use Borg Incursion:2. I don't have Windows XP but ME. To my knowledge every thing is up to date.
kel333By toolbar, do you mean the GUI? What about the button pallet?
Everything looses its texture. If any thing in the game has a .tga applied to it it becomes completly white, period. Main Menu, Option Menu, Build Buttons, Fleet controls, ect.
