Hey everyone.

So, I am having an issue with XWA and the two upgrade packs I have installed, XWAU Craft Pack v1.4 and DTM's Super Backdrops.

Here is a video showing my problem, sorry if I ramble on fora bit but the problem is that the game kind of crashes while in the hanger and I'm not sure what to do about it. Since this is probably going to be a very big issue later on in the campaign (I have only played the first few minutes of this game and plan on streaming my first experience).

But yeah, I went from a fresh GOG install in which everything worked fine to then installing those two packs mentioned above and boom, this problem occurs.

Here's the link:

Thanks!

Hello,
Your supplied link is broken.

When you install XWAUCP, you don't have to install DTMSB since DTMSB is already included in XWAUCP.

Hey there! The link is now fixed, sorry about that.
And I didn't have to install DTM's Super Backdrops since that is already included in XWAU Craft Pack v1.4?

Also, if that is so. How can I uninstall the extra 'DTM's Super Backdrop' as to not have anything messed up?

Yes

You don't have to uninstall the backdrops. This is not what causes the crashes.

I don't know what exactly causes the crashes.

Well, crap.

This is the only issue I am facing when playing this game and have no idea how to fix it.

That's not a crash, it just says the application is not responding.
That's actually kind of normal/correct, because the application while in the hangar stops polling events.
So just don't stay in the hangar that long? Otherwise xwahacker has the "message loop in hangar" fix for that if you REALLY want to spend so much time inspecting the hangar... It's marked as Linux/Wine fix because there it results in keyboard input not working at all in the hangar, which means you can't launch. It's also how we know that it only affects the hangar and not the missions.
