Just checking, do you have the 1.05 patch installed?

Try this--right-click on your Homeworld desktop shortcut, select "Properties," and in the "Target" box (where you should see something like "C:\Games\Homeworld IAW\homeworld.exe") add a space and then -debugtofile behind the end quote there. Then, after the next time you try to run the game and it crashes, check your Homeworld directory for a file called debugmessage.txt, and see what it says there. Way down at the end of that file should be something about a fatal error. Post that, and things might be a little more clear... [img]smile.gif[/img]

What that means is that it's not finding a texture that it thinks should be in a particular place. Since that texture is where it should be in my copy, it suggests to me that maybe something went wrong when you un-zipped the mod...

Quite possible I'll run some zip diag tools and see what is up.

That's the simple fix - just insert the correct files.

believe it or not this is a known problem!! somewhere along the line, some of the texture names are over 8 characters long, and for some reason when the meshes (models) were exported, the texture names were truncated like a DOS name. Not sure why this happened .. I imagine if I looked hard enough on my drive I have the fix for it somewhere....
