Greetings to all! :) I played ST:AII since 2003. That time, im using Windows ME and i havent encountered any problems or crashed. After 3 years, i missed the game and i re installed it, now using Win XP SP2. To my surprise, Armada II is now crashing and i think has a incompatibility problems with windows xp. I just installed plain old Armada II, no patches, no anything yet. So im asking the help of my fellow trekkies if this problem can be solved. problems: when using quick action campaign, after 2-4 mins of playing, computer crash and i have to reset the PC. sometimes, game became awfully slow here's my specs btw... Intel Celeron 1.7ghz 1 GB SDram 64 mb geforce video. Thanks! and live long and prosper! :naughty:

I dont know the technical term for this but I wil try and explain, I have the same video card as you and it came down to getting the right drivers, and the card being overloaded and over heating, so just get the latest drivers and ensure nothing is running in the back ground and that all your fans are working.

I will try that. Actually, i never played ST:A2 with the 64mb geforce. When im still using Win-ME, my video is shared 32MB via mother board. Its quite ironic that when i upgraded from 32mb to 64mb video, when the crashes starts to occur... The only program running while im playing ST:A2 is Azureus (torrents) Thanks for your suggestion mate! anybody else who wants to add anything? :) :)

normally people have problems with a1 not a2 when it comes to xp.

Drivers for the graphics card I would advice checking, you can often download updates to them from the manufactorer's website. It could be your display settings on your computer too.
