Hi guys
Just found youre mod and installed how was outlayed via the webpage.
XWAU Craft Pack 1.6
XWA Hooks Setup
So i started the game no mods 1st and ran a quick battle then quit.
Installed the Craft Pack again ran the game, quick battle and quit
Installed the Hooks. Now im assuming that all the files that are downloaded and placed in the setup folder i take all of them and place them into the main XWA folder and override.
Started game, tried to do quick battle. Game crashed.
Removed Hooks (Using JSGME) And the game ran fine including quick battle.

Am i missing something obvious? Appreciate help please.

Regards
Mike

Try installing a craft marked New. Then try again.
There could be a file you're missing. This should sort it.
Maybe the SSD? See how that goes.
Otherwise we will need more info or a crash log

Hello,
You need an updated DDraw dll.
You will find it on the Download page.

Hi guys. I fixed it by installing effects by BlueMax and the other 4 under it :)
One question though. It starts me of in the cruiser. If i goto crew quarters all the collectables are there etc. How can i start from the beginning? Is this a Hook that is doing this?

If you installed the Effects then you are good to go.
You don't need to install any Ddraw now or you will mess it up.

You started in the Calamari because you probably need to create a new pilot and load that instead
