Fleet Ops asks for CD but game was downloaded via GOG

Program aborts? Network configuration? Graphic errors? Bugs? Post your question here.

I apologise for being a total noob but Star Trek: Armada 2 just came to GOG where I bought and downloaded the game.

I downloaded the latest Fleet Ops mod which I was excited to play. But when I launched a game it said I need my own CD.

But my version was a digital download so don’t have a CD. I assume this will happen for other players as it has just been released.

Any ideas?

Copy the Armada2.exe from the Gog install folder to a temp location. Change its name to Armada2.ldll . In the fleetops data folder change the name of Armada2.ldl to Armada2.bak. paste the one from the Gog armada 2 folder into the data folder of the fleetops install

I don't know what I am doing wrong, but I can't get this to work for me. My PC doesn't have a CD drive anymore so I purchased a new copy of Armada 2 from GOG. When I install Fleet Ops, it keeps asking for a CD. ...but I tried what Tiny Yoda suggested and it didn't work for me. Any idea what I am doing wrong? I'd love to play this game again!

I don't know anything about moving and renaming .dll files and would recommend undoing that^^ and just do this:

Install GOG A2

Install FO locating the GOG A2 files as your .exe

Replace the armada2.exe file in the FO folder with the one from the GOG folder

And bam. No CD error gone. :thumbsup:
