Played theough the campaign once, now on the second time.
Fine last night. Turned the PC on today and GSB won’t startup.
I get the BMP and music but no icons. Tab out and you find the “Ship Hull not found ->:…\src\SIM_ShipHull.cpp 503” error. Close this and GSB closes as well.
I have all the expansions installed and all was fine until today. Installed via Impulse.
OK, errors.txt has a string of the following from everytime I try to start the game.
“2/1/2011 - 16::41 - Ship Hull not found ->:…\src\SIM_ShipHull.cpp 503”
Debug.txt contains the following:-

Design [Federation Gazelle] deleted because it was not valid with this version
Looks like it has deleted the Gazelle, maybe this is the problem.
the gazelle design is not deleted it is only how to say it… the program will not use it… unless you will use it and it will crash… so look for it in my documents/my games/gsb/ships/ find that ship design show us or delete it permanently… or both and tell us what happened
This sounds like a clash between creating and deleting player ships in the normal game, using them in the campaign, and the campaign expecting deleted designs to still be there. Unfortunately, GSB can’t handle this situation at all, it’s a bit of a side-effect of the campaigbn being designed after the existing game was finished.
Does this make sense? or is this not related to the problems you have?
Hmmm I never did get it fixed. But my system crashed a few days ago, so now everything seems to be fine.
I am reusing the same GSB saved ship designs as I was before the crash. I think it might have been a problem with my network. I had to allow GSB through my firewall just now, but I never had the option before. Maybe it got blocked by default, and the game crashed because it could not connect to the servers to download the custom ship designs?
