When I launch the disk mod it will show a white screen fore a few moments before crashing giving me no explanation as to why.
I've looked through the forums and others seem to have had the same issue with this patch only but not earlier versions
i love the mod and what you have done for the game, but it sucks how these problems exist and seeming lack of support people are getting
It would be great if this issue is fixed or I could get some help resolving it
We have responded to multiple instances of that report, it's actually directly addressed in the FAQ pinned in this subforum- you need to make sure you have a clean installation of the game, and you need to make sure you have the proper RAM fix. Steam has been updated with several changes by Petroglyph, and I only have the Steam and GoG versions. My computer doesn't even have a disk drive, so my ability to directly help people with the disk version is limited. The mod takes more resources to run now than before, which is why it's crucial people have their game patched properly, and why issues exist running the newer versions for people who don't, and not the old- it's not an issue with the mod, so it's not something we can fix with the mod. For people who are less confident in their ability to troubleshoot their own version, we have recommended that they get the Steam version (it's regularly on sale for $5), as the one with the most stability fixes from Petroglyph. Because PG wasn't able to release those fixes for GoG and Disk, it's very likely we won't be able to support those versions in the future at all if we keep developing the mod, since even releasing 2.2 required stripping significant amounts of content from the mod (luckily it was just VO and scaling down galactic map textures for this version, in the future it would mean even more). The alternative is not being able to develop the mod at all, since we've pushed to the limit of what those versions can handle.
