Ha, you have to come up with that idea first - and it worked. I started 5.0.0 in full screen mode with my native resolution and then closed the game as normal. Then restarted and everything is as it should be (even in windowed mode).

Crazy! I've never had this before with any programme / game.

Quick question: Is it really necessary to delete the existing TM directory or can a new version simply be installed over the existing TM version?

(The installer says that the folder must be empty).

I've got a crash with 5.0.1 when fighting. Don't know what's the reason.

The location of the error suggests something went wrong when a ship was exploding, or was about to explode, maybe a ship odf file has an invalid value for "fireball".

I'll look into that crash and see what I can find.

As for the different versions, they are whole new versions so I wouldn't recommend copying them over the old version, but I guess technically it would work. You could also just clear out the old version. I need to check but I believe each version uses the same user data folder so it should keep your settings.

Hi,

I would like to report a bug which occured when using the map "tic tac toe" which I got from here ( http://armadafiles.com/files/armada-2/m ... oe/details ). another Armada 2 map from this site isnt working as well.

It would be much appreciated if you can look into it. This original Armada 1 map was the greatest deal for massive FFA battles.

About the bug report: I'm using Win 11.

Lastly a feature request: Can you integrate a pre-set of the latest map, settings, enemies etc? AFAIK the original game had this feature. Thanks!

Edit: this one (https://www.fleetops.net/forums/mapexch ... yers-14008) crashs on start as well. maybe because of a similar reason.

You can't use maps from the original Armada games. Fleet Operations and its derivatives use completely different map objects, for example there are no latinum nebulas or mineable planets. The game will crash because it doesn't recognise the map objects. If you install the Armada 2 Classic mod as a mod inside of TM you should be able to use classic maps and play with the classic ships while using the new game engine, but no one has scaled the menus for that from 800x600 to 1200x900, so be prepared for mismatched shell menus.

A lot of the classic maps were recreated for Fleet Ops though (but TM is still a work in progress so it doesn't have many of those maps), you can also create new maps using the map editor.
