    After 26 years of gaming (yeah was 12 when starting ^^) i decided not to buy and play the latest expensive games, but stick to the GEMS of the decades...

    Armada 2´s original gameplay was not mine. But with current days mods its awesome!


    I´d love to play it again. Anyone here wanting to play? I am in the european time zone...

    if someone is a newbee or expert, i am willing to adjust settings so that it is fun for BOTH sides :)

    Last time I player Armada 2 was last year with Friends, but with the new computers It didn't work anymore.

    I believe I have played fleet ops Dominion once, is that the game where you can't warp anymore?

    Yeah fleetOps is a total conversion its without warping, but runs a new pcs.

    For fleetOPs there are a number of possible submods
    Dominion War Mod is one of them.

    Hamachi is great for hosting games, plus anything else like gametracker etc.

    Would love to play Armada 2 online again!!!

    I am here less then <14 days so my private message function is not active yet.

    Also i re-buyed the CD and its currently somewhere under way.

    I´d love to play Star Trek Armada 2 online, once the two issues are done. I am in the europen time zone.

    If you want to play fleetops singleplayer you need either your own cd OR in LAN/INTERNET maybe if someone else has a one cd for 4 player. I ordered me a new CD and have 2 pcs, so i will test if fleetops works if only 1 of 4 internetplayer have a cd.

    I don't recall owning numberr 2, but I had 1. Loved the music and the colorful space gases. I remember the story being awesome. Rewatched the opening cinematic. Not quite as thrilling as it was back then, but still cool.

    I replayed this a few years ago. The only major bug is that the Stardates in the results screen no longer work

    Armada II can run on Windows 10. The way I got it was following online guides. Install the game. Install the 1.1 patch, then the 1.3 patch. Then try compatibility thingies.
