Hi folks.

This mod pack is incredible. I've been having huge amounts of fun with it. Until recently. Ever since I reinstalled the game with the latest installer (ironically to fix the problem that hasn't gone away) I have been unable to make it through a single battle. The two parties line up at the start of the battle as normal, but as soon as I press "turn" (or as the first turn resolves) the game crashes. The only time I made it through a battle was when the Calamarain attacked my Cardassian starbase. The first time around the game crashed when I moved the camera during the fight, so I restarted and tried again. I didn't move the camera at all and survived two turns until my starbase got the job done.

I've tried Kharille's strategy of starting the game in compatibility mode for various versions of Windows but nothing helps, and in some cases the game fails to load at all.

Does anyone out there have any suggestions or directions? I love this game. I just wish I could still play it!

My system is an AMD FX 6300 with 8Gb RAM and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti with the 23.21.13.8871 driver.

Thanks in advance, folks!

Hi! Thanks so much for this! Let's see now...

Windows 8.1. Hasn't changed since I started using the mods.

Game install options:
o Install DxWnd files (bg Gho)
- Set icons to use Fullscreen DxWnd Command line arguments
o Install Ultimate Editor (bg Dcer)
o Install QD's Patcher (by QuasarDonkey)
Vanilla Tasks
o Leave original 800 x 600 GUI
- Create Birth of the Federation Desktop Icon
- Install hob fix, (patch for evade and retreat CTD)
- replacement 512 x 512 Model textures (cosmetic patch)

- gui fixes (functional fixes and cosmetic patch)

UM5 Tasks
o 1024 x 768 released GUI

- Install hob fix, (patch for evade and retreat CTD)
- Create UM5 Desktop Icon

Using DxWnd: I... think so.

Is there a good site for me to upload a save file to?

EDIT: After I presented my specs yesterday, I noticed my graphics card driver was out of date. I'm now using 23.21.13.9135. Alas, still crashing.

check properties of desktop shortcut for "target" if dxwnd is in use it should be something like this
C:\botf\tools\dxwnd_windowed\dxwnd.exe /R:9

Ah. Sorry. Save uploaded. I've got some battleships whose crews have no idea what they're doing, off to go ham on some Dominion troop transports. They get their orders, start to move, and the game crashes when they go to open fire. Specifically, the ships can fire off a few torpedoes before the crash, but I've never seen their phasers fire since the crashing started. I don't know if that's significant. Hailing the Dominion ships causes them to flee and the battle to resolve without a crash.

"o" was me trying to illustrate a selected dot. "-" is just to show a ticked box. Basically, every option that I selected was what I listed.

My shortcut's target is:
C:\botf\tools\dxwnd_Fullscreen\dxwnd.exe /R:9

sorry to say it looks like a video driver issue,

when I loaded your saved game I had no issues in combat though 3 separate battles.

you might try replacing with older driver
