Good Day, everyone I am now almost bald from pulling my hair out of my head because the frustrations this game is causing me. My issue i believe is somewhat related to the black screen yellow cursor issue, however, i am at a brick wall and dont know what to do. The problem occours when i try to load a mission that has been saved. halfway through the loading procedure, the screen flickers and i get an error regarding stbc.exe that causes it to crash. i have not been able to get anywhere in the missions and i am frankly getting sick of the first few. so any help is greatly appreciated. also, i have tried copying the save files, re-installing, and copying back the save files, and it still crashes with a fresh installation.

did you install the patch? if you continue to have a problem, use the Test Mode "cheat"...

Yeah, I tried the patch and it still doesnt work. How do you use the test mode "cheat"?

you can find it on any cheat code website... 1) Go to the icon for BC on your desktop 2) Go to it's properties, and to it's Target 2) Add the following OUTSIDE the quotes: -TestMode

just for future refererence. ANY saved game before you installed a certain mod will NOT work. Test mode cheat is ALWAYS needed after you install a mod. It also lets you bring down the consol screen, which gives technical information about errors. to activate that in the event of a blackscreen yellow cursor error is present, hit the ~ key and it will bring it down.

... and from there you can find out what mod is messing up your game, saving you the time it takes to uninstall + reinstall + mods

if you added a ship take it out... it's caused by incompatibility in mods.
