1. Every time I add one or several Kvort cruisers (from the enemies of life expansion) to a QB (either as friendly or enemy ship) it completely messes up the game. There is no Kvort and only one of the other ships. The other ship doesn't react at all i.e. it doesn't move or fire. This problem is still there when I remove the Kvort in the QB menu. The only way to fix it is to restart the game. 2. Since I installed the enemies of life 1.1b patch the pictures of several ships ( Norway, Steamrunner, Valdore, Miranda ,... ) are missing in the QB setup and later in the tactical screen.

I have another problem and it is with the Deluxe "compiled" version of the Expansion Pack. I installed the game and also the official 1.1 patch and then I installed the Delux Compiled Expansion Pack, but when I start the game all I get is silence and the screen turns all black and locks up. I do not have screen savers set up and the game worked with the previous expansion packs before I reinstalled by system. I have 256MB RAM and the CPU is 1.8GHz and the video card is a Geforce FX 5600. I have not run the game with this card before but it worked fine with a Geforce4 on this same machine. I think the problem is the Deluxe Expansion Pack and I would reinstall the game and then the individual patches were it not for the fact that I don't know what "Foundation" refers to and it is required to install the individual patches.

BTW when I said Expansion Pack I meant the Enemies of Life packs.

I uninstalled the game and reinstalled it without the expansion packs (without Enemies of Life packs) and I have the same problem as before, so it has nothing to do with the packs and probably everything to do with the only thing that is different now, my video card. I am going to first try to install the drivers that came with the old Nvidia card and if that does not work, I will install the old card, a Geforce 4 and remove the FX5600.

I thought the problem I was having was related, I did not mean to hijack a thread. I will be more careful next time.

I thought that a mix and match approach to adding ships just messed up the game. I did that when I first got the game and a couple of people told me it was a recipe for disaster, that I should just stick with the expansion packs. I have done that and it has worked out pretty well. I think I am missing out on alot of stuff but I want a stable game.

It sounds like a problem with one of the script files. Most kVort variants use the same files names and it could be a corrupt or conflicting file.

The Kvort model that came with the expansion pack was the only one I had installed so I don't think there's a conflict. After that I tried different kvort variants but all caused the same problem.
