Have you added any new ships or modified any files under assets? If you did, this can cause an error if you messed up a file inadvertently. Suggest you take a look at » Customizing SFC3 and » Add ships SFC3 to avoid any troublesome mistakes. Suggest you uninstall the game to include all folders (do a search). Do a defrag, restart your computer and make sure your virus programs are turned off until after the install. Reinstall SFCIII (ignore the direct X8/gamespy...install DirectX 9.0c direct from DirectX website if you want to play out of the box, or install the beta patch recommended 534_b as this has the latest Direct X 9.0c to include patch with extra Borg/Romulan missions). After you have done all this try playing the game, if it does it to you again right click on the SFCIII Icon. under "compatibility" click on the box that says, "disable visual themes" - some operating systems require you to do this for the game to work. If you are still having problems after doing all of this let us know, further, if you can provided details of your operating system one of the computer gurus here may be able to assist further.

Could be a defective disc or bogus copy if it is not in the original jewel as this game is getting harder to find. However, one of the guys that frequent this sight often will probably be able to offer you more; this may be of concern: "DX Setup Parameters: Not found", but I'm not a computer tech – sorry, the suggestions didn’t help any.
game is new and original thanks anyway. ill see wht else i can do to make the game work or ill just take it back

i cant play the game with the patch . but i can play it without the patch because it keeps saying insert the cd
I patched it with 534b, applied the compatibility options, and it kept crashing while "loading." I disabled the compatibility options, and now it runs fine. Did you use Makeitso=1?
