Anyone else have a problem with ships in your fleet just exploding for no reason? This is a regular problem I've had for a while. In single player, sometimes ships just explode even though they haven't been scratched by the enemy. Also can you play multiplayer on gamespy or whatever with the beta patch? I tried connecting and it showed a game for beta 1.01 I think build 500 but I was never able to enter a game.

I think it's a bug in the game, but not sure if anyone's tried to fix it. I've had it happen to me myself. As for playing on Gamespy with the beta patch, yes you can, but I think right now everyone is using the 534_B 1.01 beta patch to play on gamespy.

MaximumAge = 5 // This is the number of turns before a ship is scrapped The problem can be fixed by altering this line in the Activision\Sfc3\MetaAssets\ServerProfiles\SinglePlayer folder to for example 50, this extends the lifetime of you're fleetships by fifty times (fifty missions). This should solve your problems, it did with me. :bows:
