Fleetops is basically a new game engine from Armada 2. How easy or hard is it to port over the super special weapons (klingon shockwave, federation temporal wave...)???

I'm guessing it has to do with various sprite files, textures and odf files that no longer work in Fleetops.

Fleet Operations 3.2.x is fully backwards-compatible :)

^What Dominus_Noctis said^

The files from Armada II should run properly on their own, just by putting them in the mods folder. Of course there might be a little bit of tweaking required, such as techtree entries and removing "race = cardassianunion" from something.

What about the various sprites, any thing needed to be changed in the sprite folder?

well, if you want the complete list, it should be:

-techtree entry
-gui_global: entry for the button
-textures folder: texture file with the button in it
-special weapon odfs: possible race changes, etc
-if it uses an explosion, this will be listed in the ordinance file and require a .SOD file in the sod folder

You should also check the type of weapon in the Fleet Ops modding guide to see if there are any crashes that can be caused (such as using "target location" without "requires target" or some other AI-related commands)
