[running] Armada 2526 SuperNova Christmas 2016 !
« on: December 22, 2016, 04:37:04 AM »
Hello guys!

OJsDad and myself have been playing Flashpoint Campaigns and we were remeniscing about our Armada game that fell silent due to some technical issues at the time, several years back.
We thought it would be nice to retry! So for everyone interested, please make yourselves known!  :bd:

Original players at the time were OJ, Shelldrake, Staggerwing, Martok, Jarhead and myself, but everyone is welcome to join in (first come first serve)!

It will be a PBEM game of course.

Been a long time since I've played this and I think I need to reinstall, but sure...I'm in.

I'll have to reinstall as well. If I can figure out where I archived the installer I'll do so right away.

Don't know if it's too late to still get in on this, but I'd be game. 

Although I should probably first ask if it's possible to play PBEM between Steam version and non-Steam version.  I have Armada installed on Steam, but not sure where the installer for my original copy of the game is hiding at.

Not too late at all!

I am not sure if pbem between versions work, but as I have the GGate version, shoot me a pbem file from your steam version and we'll see as a test.
If it doesnt work we can always agree on which version we take then.

BTW, Armada and its Expansion is currently 80% off at Steam. Might be handy to grab it there regardless for 4 euros total.  O0

When were you thinking of starting? I need to move my windowbox to more accessible spot first since Armada is not Mac-worthy.

heh I've been meaning to check this out on youTube and see if I might want to buy it. In fact... I'll go do that right now.

Now that you say that, Anguille, I seem to recall that you're correct. 


...And I just discovered that apparently my old Gmail account was deleted ( >:( ), so here's my new one:

EDIT:  Forgot to say I'll take the Volmar if no one else wants them.

GET IT

Ok guys, I need some info to get hosting:

OJsDad, Jarhead, Staggerwing and Ubercat I need your email address for the PBEM turns (might differ from your regular email!).

OJsDad, Staggerwing and Ubercat I need your race pref or just state no preference if you want a random race.

After this we can hit Start.
All diplomacy can do via the in-game message system, or if you want to keep a log seperately please provide your Diplomacy email address if it differs from your PBEM turn one.

If you value your privacy and don't want email addresses displayed on a forum you can PM me on Grogheads. I will send out a group email with contact info once I have everything in order.

Hope you chaps had a great Xmas!
