There is a copy of Fleet Ops on my mediafire ( ... which is just someone else's Windows 10 Fleet Ops installation to be copy/pasted. We found that it worked for some people...but not everybody. It was so unpredictable, and since then there have been many Win10 updates.

When the game didn't work on Win10, it was usually a security program blocking something. After that, it was sometimes a compatibility option that wasn't installed in the person's Win10 and they had to enable somewhere. But it's so weird that there are versions of Fleet Ops that work and some that don't. At some point I can look into the Dominion mod, but I have to ration my time these days and there isn't much of it.

Thanks for the pointers. Yes I'm aware W10 can be very unforgiving with older games. What gets me is that the DWM just works faultlessly, yet the vanilla Fleet Ops doesn't any more on some (like mine) patched and updated W10 systems.

Do have a look at the DW Mod if you get a spare minute, it's a great Mod.

I did have a Win 7 Hard Drive I could boot into at one point, but removed that drive as everything I needed did work on Win 10 - until reinstalling Fleet Ops of course.

I'll certainly have a look in your archive for the version as you suggested and give it a go.

Regards and thanks.

Just a further update. I tried the version of Fleet Ops linked to above. I installed fleet ops from the main installer then deleted and replaced the 'Data' folder with the one in the link and unfortunately the same thing - crash after launching an instant action game immediately on launch.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

Just for information regarding the new version: Fleetops still crashes as soon as ships fly into view and they are fired upon by streamrunners at that exact moment.

The only way to prevent this is to avoid this situation. For example, if the streamrunners do not shoot on their own or if another unit outside their range has already detected the ships.

I'm not aware of that specific problem, but the Steamrunner did have two crash bugs that I've fixed for the next version: Veteran Steamrunners caused a crash when firing, and any Steamrunner could cause a crash when firing at specific stations.

The next version will release before next weekend, either Thursday or Friday. I've gotten a lot of help and feedback, so it should be a very low-bug version.

Alright guys, it has arrived! Version 4.1.6, aka "Not So Buggy This Time Edition." Many thanks to T-man, djdarkmunk, and Dragi for helping me iron out the kinks over the past few weeks.

Not only is this version probably the most polished version I've released in 2022, it's also the easiest to modify version of Fleet Operations that there has ever been. If you're at all interested, check out the Modding Tools folder and the instruction document in particular: I'd like to get more feedback and eventually, get more people involved in modding. ... ptic's_Mod as always.

*sigh* my bad. Risner's platforms work properly, and Mayson's will be fixed in the next version. The Federation have gotten the least attention recently while I focused on the other races.

Let's make two more small observations for Fed:

1. The Newton class button for the special abilities is still "gone", only when researching the extended repair ability it is briefly visible and clickable. Without this, the ships repair nothing by themselves.

2. The Romulans are currently incredibly strong. In a game with 3 AIs, the Romulan AI destroys both other AIs within a short time and then floods me with unbelievable waves of ships - that can't be defended with anything. Reproduced several times.

Next bug: when a Warp In ship (here it's the streamrunner) reaches an officer rank, it doesn't freed the slots. Normally it should be 4 / 12 instead of 11 / 12.

Checked 4.1.7 -> icons of the turrets are back, BUT you can't build (click) them :lol:

Version 4.1.8 isn't out yet, but it will be in less than 24 hours.

-I fixed the Mayson platforms, properly this time :sweatdrop:
-The Steamrunner is working as intended. In TM it takes up 2 slots each, and only drops down to 1 slot when it reaches Rank 5 (2 gold bars) so in the case shown, it should be 11 slots. I may need to update the icon tooltip so it explains this.
-I'll look into the Newton. It's not a ship I use normally...or ever, so I've been slow in testing it.

As for the Romulan AI, that is curious. Right now only the Romulan and Dominion AIs have all 5 build orders finished, while the Feds/Klingons have 1 which tend to be a little early-game focused. The Borg have 2 but there is a bug that can cause the Borg AI to hang and stop building. So right now it's possible for Romulan AI to overwhelm the others, usually on a big map where the Romulan AI chooses a Warbird strategy. Right now the plan isn't to nerf the Romulan AI, but to build up the other AIs to match. I usually test on Hard AI, and Merciless AI isn't really meant to be beaten by humans without the humans outnumbering the AI or abusing certain maps.
