Game-breaking bug in mission "the chance"
Nexus crashed 5 times in the row for me in the same mission at the exact same time. It's on the 4th mission and I crash right after the commando finds the alien ship. Reinstalling or messing with the options didn't fix the crash :( Anyone an idea how to fix this?

The same thing happens to me! How do we fix this!?!?! This is one of my most favorite games, and when I feel like getting toasted and playing space cadet its one of my go to games along with x3 and sword of the stars. Does anyone have any save game files they can lend? maybe to the mission after "The Chance" ?

Hi, a couple of things spring to mind. If the mission you are refering to is the first one that has the angelwing in it, it sounds like its crashing at the point when it should appear. First of all, have you modded your installation of Nexus at all? I ask because what you describe can be caused if you have changed any of the paths or names in the Tacticsai.ini file. If you have used the DAtool and extracted the nexus_00.dat, its possible you may not have renamed it to .old after so NExus can see more than one model but doesnt know which one to use.

Can you give some more detail on what you have installed and what you have done to it?

Utwig.

Well .. for me .. i bought the game .. i installed it with steam .. i played it .. it crashed :/

have done no changes to game files or anything.

iv tryed to run the dxwebsetup.exe , iv tryed deleting the game and doing a reinstall .. and iv tryed uring steams rebuild tool.

thnx for writing back btw :D

Windows 7 64bit ultimate, reinstalled 3 monthhs ago.. with a radeon 7970 and 16gig of ram.

well, maybe i should just try a reinstall again, off the operation system.

try running it with admin or in compatablility. i mean that probably wont fix it but hey. when in doubt. flip the battery around.

i tryed that as well .. to start with the game wouldent even load .. then i figured it its because of some bug with it not being able to find steam .... becasue it was looking for it in the wrong place ( 64bit system you know ) ... so a added the path in system, changed compatability.. still directx_9.exe or _8.exe crashes.
