I have recently installed portable aurora v7. 10.  But when i am running Aurora_Wrapper, It's just loading in 5 minuttes where nothing happens.  Then after 5 minuttes, it shows me an error where it says "Windows could not gain access to the path or file.  You have possibly not the necessary rights to gain access to the element".  How do i fix that?

This should be reported in the wrapper thread. Steve did not write the wrapper and so has no control over any bugs in it.

New player here so my apologies if this has already been posted or if this is the wrong place to post.

I started a new game, and mostly followed the tutorial PDF.   While the survey ships do their work I set the battle fleet  (2x Ark Royal cruisers) to training.   This dropped their max speed to 1 km/s, which I figured was a side effect of "no orders while on a training exercise"  After awhile I decided to move them but even after I turned training off the max speed stayed 1 m/s.   I also tried waiting 5 days and doing an overhaul (they had been in orbit so no maintenance time on the clock) and max speed remained 1 km/s.   The ships are 5,600 tons with two 160EP nuclear pulse engines each, and the class design shows max sped of 2,857 km/s.    Transferring the ships to a new task group gave it a max speed of 1 km/s.   

Am I doing something wrong? If so how do I "wake up" this task group?  If not how would I give you more data to diagnose what is going on?

You can manually set the speed of a Task Force, or hit the 'Max Speed' button.

The max is 1 km/s

On the individual Unit details ship design it shows a max of 1 km/s but on the class design tab it shows 2,857.   Shouldn't they match?

Neither design has a fuel tank.  The Ship Design window doesn't check this (thus displaying the calculated speed), but the individual Unit window does check that this unit has fuel onboard.

Thanks!  I'm not sure how I managed to delete the fuel tank but putting one back on fixed it.

Active Sensors unable to find vessels below certain TCS
TL;DR:
Designing stealth fighters with a cloaking device can give you an effective cross section that no active sensor is able to find, at ANY range, even point blank, that is 0km.  Tested with approx 0. 4995 TCS, but rumoured to work also with 0. 545 (and possibly larger tonnages).  All technology was tested with Inertial Confinement.  All sensors were maxed in HS and included resolution 1. 

Intro:
After a long design process I ended up with a 500ton Cloaked Figher with a TCS of 0. 4995 called "Apex" (see attachment).  During testing it was found that the fighter managed to not only remain undetected at around 600k km, but get even closer.   
It turned out that the fighter is completely undetectable, even at 0km (see attachments), except by Thermal Sensors.

Method:
SM-mode.  Create new race on Earth.  We now have two factions.  Remove all Deep Space Tracking from both factions.  Give first faction Sensor Ships and the other Stealth Fighters.  Spawn ships on both sides.  Turn on actives for Sensor Side.  Note ranges, experiment with movement.  Check that data matches on both sides. 

Reproduction of above observation:
Research Inertial Confinement (SM give all <250,001 RP).  Design smallest cloak possible.  Put on fighter.  Spawn said fighter and attempt to find said fighter on another faction's side with resolution 1 active sensors.

This "exploit" has been tested by more than one person and is (most likely) confirmed.  This was discussed at some lengths at the Discord Channel in which this "strategy" was deemed to be "cheese". 

I DO NOT know the threshold of TCS. 

This find might be relevant for the development of C# Aurora.

Fighters: Enemy fighters don´t do anything, they have fired their missiles at me, but after that they are staying put, not even sure if I should kill them all. Reason is probably because I killed their carriers so they have nowhere to go...

This is not a bug. Any AI-controlled ship that has no method to re-arm will remain passive as it cannot do anything. Especially if they also lack sensors. Send a ship close and see if they try to ram you.

So, found an exploit with the Research UI which allows you to research a technology by top queuing the research, allowing you to research spoiler technologies and more advanced technologies by skipping the entire tree if the player wanted to.   I didn't see anyone bring it up before, so my apologies if I ended up missing the person who did. 

In the research screen, and with the 'All projects' tab selected, you can select a technology and then 'Queue Top' the technology, you can place the technology to be researched without prerequisite technologies, and allows you to get ruin specific research without ruins.   The following images show the results of the exploit.

You have Spacemaster mode turned on, is it still possible to do it with SM off?
Otherwise its not really gamebreaking.

I can confirm that this happens without SM mode. I've made use of it as a way to queue up long lines of low-cost technologies (ie: 10cm, 12cm, 15cm energy weapons) to reduce micro, but I'd never bothered using it to cheat new tech, as there are much more convenient ways to do that than this bug.

Railgun set to area defence and all gauss-cannon turrets set to final defence mode and I still get this


to say that this ticked me off is putting it lightly
