Hi, apologies if this is already here somewhere, did a search of the forums and couldn’t find anything.
Running GSB 1.59 on a very old acer aspire 3500 laptop, windows XP sp2, so the problem may just be that the computer is to old, however it’s an odd one so I thought I’d bring it up and see if anyone knows of a way to fix it.
Basically, any time a Phalanx class fighter would be displayed on screen, the display locks up. It’s still possible to use the arrow keys to scroll away and after a moment the battle continues on. I did a quick test with a squadron of each of the three imperial fighter types, and it definately occurs only with the phalanx. Is there any particular visual gubbin that only this model uses? Only a single fighter is required on screen to lock the display however.
I do currently have the dreadnaughts mod installed but even with no modified units/modules in the battle this occurs. The problem has existed for the entire period of time that I’ve owned the game, even before installing the mod.
I haven’t tested exhaustively with all other races (only bought the last two expansion races finally last night), but as of this time, having played the game off and on for about a year, the Imperials are the only one that it seems to occur on. Has me scratching my head, any thoughts?
edit for game version number
