AKK!! STOCK GAME!! RUN AWAY!!!! the stock version has many MANY bugs. try upgrading to the latest patch
i got same prob as styx but i have latest patch
try hodling start button then while holding that hit R then type regedit then click on local machine then find microsoft then find directx then find the version in the second window off to the right then right click on it and hit modify it should look like this 4.09.00.0904 change it to 4.08.00.0904 basically change the first 9 to an 8 That is if you have directx 9.0c try that :) good luck oh becareful you can easily destry your computer if you do the wrong things in regedit I know how to destroy a computer in aprox 5 seconds I'm extra carefull because of that LOL ZAX
Should I just install the game and stick in the direct X 9 patch I downloaded nemesis sov and the uber cool Xpack 1.2
I have had a similar problem with the latest patch and my game crashed without any error message when it was unpatched. If you are running an Nvidia or an ATI video card then right click on the shortcut for SFC3, go to properties > compatibilty tab and check the disable visual themes box, click apply and ok . That seemed to work for me. hope this is helpfull
if you have one of the latest patches, either v531 or v534B then the DX9 fix is included and you need not worry with it. and BTW, if your wanting to check your version of DirectX, do NOT do what that idiot said. Do this, GO into the start menu and click Run, type in DXDIAG and hit enter. THAT will bring up the DirectX Diagnostic window that will give you tools needed to check things, including telling you which version you have. You never NEVER want to mess with the Registry Keys, unless you like reinstalling windows that is.

Eh. The only mods I can get to work are those that just mess with the ships. All the mods that I try to get to work that add different races and stuff like that keep crashing, and I get the unhandled exception error.
Some mods arnt set up for single player play. The new mod from AU should be available on SFC3files soon, and it is set up to work with single player.
