Sorry, the problem was the file size, the precise file size, when I added one more file to it, it worked.

The stbof.res file was at that point 173 093 kb if I remember correctly.

This happened a few years ago too, just added some files, and the game crashed right from the start.

There may be some magical file size points in this game, which cause ctd I guess.

Are you getting this crash log? if not is there a crash log?

Version Under Test: 72
File: dounzip.c, Line: 468, members_remaining <= INSANE_FILE_THRESH_HOLD
Initialize State: 0
Player Empire: 1 Starting Seed: 0
Galaxy shape: 0 Galaxy Size: 0

if this crash log stbof.res has a file limit of 8000 files

this can be edited to allow more files at 0x114092 40 1F -> FF FF (this would allow = 65,535 files)

Nope, I could not get even into the main menu, so there's no crash log at all.

As I stated before, it seems it was just some coincidence in the file size, the game could not handle that precise file size, when larger or smaller, the game works.

Thanks, Martok, I think so too.
Though, the red and gold for the klingons brings communism in mind a little, but not badly, just slightly.

Wow! Those honestly look amazing. That's some seriously nice work, man.

That's actually very appropriate when you think about it, though. In The Original Series, the Klingons were the stand-ins for the Soviet Union (just as the Federation was representative of the USA & Western Europe). ;)

Thanks again Martok.

I recall I read in the late 90's about this soviet union relation from some star trek book, for example it said that the explosion of the Praxis moon in ST VI, had to do with the soviet Chernobyl nuclear plant explosion in... was it 1987.
