Hi there, I have installed SFC3 on a WindowsXP Professional with DirectX9.0b has been installed. When starting the game, I receive the message:

DirectX 8.1 not installed - Please install DirectX 8.1 or later...

So I downloaded the 9.0b again and installed it again. Ran DXDIAG and saw version 9.0b was installed.

Further specs: Athlon amd 1800+(1150 Mhz), 256Mb RAM, plenty HDspace, GeForce2 MX/MX 400 32MB, latest drivers are installed.

Any ideas?

Oh yes.

You need the DirectX 9 fix, hosted on Taldren's SFC3 site, and somewhere here on SFC3Files.

You can also download the beta patch, this also has the DirectX9 fix.

sfc3files.com has it around somewhere, searching Google for Starfleet Command III will net the "official" website for SFC3, patch is on there somewhere.

The patch installs Scimitar add-on mission. You can make it playable (Scimitar) by changing NS to AI or Custom or blank space in it`s Defaultloadout.txt line. It fix some 100 bugs ( list of bugs included ) and you can find it by going to taldren.com
