CRASH FIX IN UPCOMING NEWS POST!

About:


This mod wants to keep the original FoC experience, just with improved graphics, while adding a few units to keep it interesting.

This means new models and textures for almost all units. It also ramps up the difficulty so that the game remains challenging even after you've learned how to play it. All changes will only apply to space, ground is uneffected, as I'm not a big fan of ground combat.

What I'd like to do in the mod is make the higher tier units more dangerous, so that when you see a Star Destroyer it will be a larger threat than in the vanilla game. I do this not by giving the ship higher shield points, or add more hardpoints, but by making some of the hardpoints untargetable. This will ensure the ship is a threat right up untill it blows up, thus making larger ships with more health more dangerous for a longer time. Higher tier ships will also cost more.

The mod will also add one additional tier of battleship above the normal Star Destroyer, Mon Calamari Cruiser and Keldabe Battleship, though seeing one of these will be a special occasion and plenty of reason for panic.

This is my little love project, besides my main mod, Old Republic at War ( Moddb.com ) Sometimes I get a little sick of all the Old Republic era stuff and want to do something closer to the original game, in a different time line.

Constructive critisism is appreciated and taken into consideration, and occasionally I'll make a poll about something to get different opinions on the subject, though the final decision remains mine. No unit requests.I reserve the right to write back an angry response or flat out ignore you.

This is my interpertation of an updated FoC, I like to think I have high quality standards and I always try to improve the mod in all ways, graphical, gameplay related or otherwise.

I hope you enjoy your stay here and that you're as excited for the mod as I am!

Crash Fix

News 12 comments

Quite a few people have reported crashes even after I got rid of the particles that crashed the game for me personally.

THE FIX: Youtube.com

Steam Version Fix Drive.google.com
This is Non-Steam exe file that I had already patched. Overwrite it to your foc folder. After overwrite swfoc.exe, Launch Vanilla FOC by using steam.
This method would crash vanilla FOC, but it seems fine with mods.

This SHOULD fix any crashes people have.

Special thanks to user 0il for pointing this out. You should check his other videos since he has smooth battles with 100 pop cap. Very cool to look at imo.

Installation instructions for the mod can be found here: Moddb.com

Seems a bit general but anybody else having a crash where they load up a save they played for a while? This has happened twice with me where I played as the empire for several hours, saved, came back and crashed to desktop with no error notice

Now i tried to download the crash fix but for some reason it says the file is not executable. i have empire at war foc on disc and for some reason it wont work. awesome mod no complaints but the continuous crashes when i try to jump in Ackbar and thrawn in skirmish. and in galactic conquest it would randomly crash for no reason or when i try to save the game it also crashes. please for next update or patch please fix the crashes because the download doesn't work for disc

It does work, actually, you likely just did something wrong. Read the installation instructions and try a reinstall of both the game and the mod then apply the 4bg patch.

So I downloaded the patch which made my game crash everytime I tried to open it. So I uninstalled it and re installed the whole game and then out the mod back in my mods folder and it somehow worked

So what did you do exactly? I just tried a completely fresh install and tried to apply the 4gb patch method, the steam version fix method, and I even tried applying the large address aware file. I either receive the Error 51 from Steam when I try using the 4gb patch/large address, or the game fatally crashes when I try the steam version fix version (the one with the custom swfoc.exe, which for some reason is smaller than the stock swfoc.exe). The game is currently unplayable for me because it will crash in skirmish almost every game that lasts more than a couple of minutes.

Holy cow, I think I figured it out. If you create your own mod shortcut using a batch file, you are able to launch into the game with the Steam Version Fix. However, if you use launching mods through steam (set launch options), you will crash to desktop.

I will play a few games tonight using the batch file and see if everything works as intended.

Yup confirmed. Creating a batch file to launch the game mod will work, using the Steam launcher method will cause a fatal error every time.

I doubt it but you could move a lot of the content into the original Empire at War.

I'm really quite fond of this mod- particular highlights are your inclusion of some of my favorite Imperial ships, as well as the fact that you seem to admire the work of Ansel Hsiao as much as I do. I love all the completely new ships as well as the revamped models of the existing ones (more to come?), I love the accurately-sized fighters, I love the description of the Nimbus (though question your judgement of such a beautiful fighter). I especially enjoy that you've resized and renamed some of…
