Hi there, I stumbled across this problem too.

After some internet research, I found some information, but I found no workaround so far.

There seems to be a missing dialog file named "12.2".

So after some thinking, I realized the dialog file is not missing, it's path and name in the game scripts are incorrect.

You just have to rename/copy the following dialog file:

...\SteamApps\common\StarpointGemini\Data\Dialogs\CutScene\M22\CSDia04.dia

copy this file to:

...\SteamApps\common\StarpointGemini\Data\Dialogs\CutScene\

then rename it to "12.2" WITHOUT THE FILE EXTENSION ".dia"!

On some systems you may have to uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types" in "Folder and search options" in order to change the file extension!

One warning though, the filenames inside the CutScene folder could contain some spiolers!

Hi, this last comment does confuse me a bit.
I now have file called "12.2" (without any extension) in the destination folder.
Loaded my last savegame, doing the initiall battle, the cutscene comes up,
but then still crashes to the dsktop.

Something i misunderstood ?

in my case it helped with this mission...
but now an other mission crashes within it cutscene >_<
mission "thief in the night" (hope this is the english name of it...). the mission where the player and "the doc" steal some freighter and get blackmaild by "george". the doc solves this problem with her mines explodig inside the ship. right after this she help someone and during this conversation the game crashes. After the guy says "I hate Scientists."

Mhh... was the file you copied named CSDia04.dia or just CSDia04?

Also check it's proberties for filetype, it should say filetype "2-File" or the like, not dia-File!

When renaming there should also be a popup like "If you change fileextension... are you sure?"

@halloween20: right now i'm at mission 25 and no crashes so far, what mission are you at?

as i said "dieb in der nacht"... but i was able to solve this crash in the same way... with help of the log-file i was able to find the needed file and copy it into the dialoge file... this time i needed to change the name to "111.3" ....

@halloween20
which file from what cutscene folder did you have to copy over ?
halloween20 Feb 8 @ 2:40pm 
in the mission "dieb in der nacht" or the one mentioned above ?
in both cases u have to go to the folder for the mission
...\SteamApps\common\StarpointGemini\Data\Dialogs\CutScene\M22\
and the other one is
...\SteamApps\common\StarpointGemini\Data\Dialogs\CutScene\M25\

in this folder u finde the file the game is missing during the cutscenes.
wich one i needed in the mission "diebe in der nacht" ... i allready forgot ... sry >_>

but u can find it urself.

SG write a log file into its own main folder called "ActivityRecord.txt"
at the end it shows u the "wrong" path where it trys to open the needed file
(StarpointGemini\Data\Dialogs\CutScene\12.2
was the first one
StarpointGemini\Data\Dialogs\CutScene\111.3
the one now)
if u search for the last correct opend dialog file u find something like:
"ESOT_DialogRun: <M25\Dia03.dia>"
u just have to copy the next one in the row...

For "Dieb in der Nacht" M25/CSDia20.dia is the right one.
