I have Win 7/64 and got GSB from Steam, if that makes any difference.
Anyway, today I decided to get some mods. This has broken my game in some sort of way and I’m hoping folks here can tell me how to fix it (short of a re-install). And if I do have to re-install, is there any way to save my progress? Thanks in advance.
Here’s the deal…
I have installed Archduke Astro’s Classic Dreadnoughts, DarkStar’s Unity, and GATC’s Xedilco. I installed them all without running the game in between. Unity seems to work fine. I can fight battles, unlock stuff, and select the Uni-T races to play. Same with Xedilco. However, I have the following problems, and I don’t know what mods caused them (other than the obvious)
Dreadnougths Don’t Work
It’s like they’re not installed at all. There is no trace of them in the game.
I cannot use the ship designer from the main menu. While the ship designer will start OK and display some random saved design, the game crashes to desktop as soon as I click on the CHANGE button to select a different hull. Despite all this, the ship designer works just fin from within the deployment screen of a battle. It’s just from the main menu that kills it.
In an effort to try to solve the above problem, I tried uninstalling Dreadnoughts. That proved no problem–the game didn’t notice their arrival so didn’t mind their departure. Then I tried to uninstall Xedilco. There is no README for this mod so I just followed the instructions for uninstalling Unity, hoping Xedilco worked the same way. This involved:
1: Deleting any ships I’ve designed using Xedilco parts. No problem there, haven’t made any yet.
2. Delete xedilco.txt from data\installs
3. Delete xedilco.pkg from data\packages
4. Delete xedilco folder.
But after doing that, GSB won’t even start. The splash screen comes up but the main menu never appears on top of it, and hitting any key or clicking anywhere causes an immediate CTD.
So, what’s up? I restored all the Xedilco stuff and the game at least launches again, but still the ship editor won’t work from the main menu.
Anyy ideas? Thanks in advance.
