Tactical Fleet Simulator (TFS) is a total overhaul with the aim of transforming Homeworld2 into a tactics-oriented strategy game. Initial versions aimed for a more immersive tactical "simulator" orientation, the current version provides a more refined and consistent RTS experience.

1) Do you have the v1.1 patch installed?
2) Are you using Windows Vista? If so, do you have DEP and UAC disabled and the latest drivers for your video card?
3) Did you create a shortcut to run the TFSv2.5.big with?

I have noticed a similar problem, the game would start up fine (the menu screen). I could mess with all the options. I could start a game, but as soon as the loading bar filled up, it would crash to the desktop (without any further issues). Im not sure what the current issue is, but I do know, that, at least on my cruddy computer, the older 2.5.0 version works great. Give it a try, and tell me if it works on your computers.

Are you by any chance using an integrated graphics chipset? The Intel integrated graphics chipsets will not work with TFS, and will cause the game to crash to the desktop immediately after it finishes loading.

There are two workarounds:
1) Use one of the older versions of TFS that are still available for download.
2) Extract the "TFSv2.5.big" or "TFSv2.6.big" contents, delete the "shaders" folder, than re-package the files into a .big file.

Actualy yes, I am useing an intregated graphics card. I will look into this. (currently, I find this version 2.5.0 for the vegar to have an extramly high advantage. IE, their cheapest friget FFG-32 is better than every other hiigaran friget)

Also, are there no shaders in the 2.5.0 version? as I said, this one does work. Any ideas why it does?.

Also, for more information. I have a macbook (GMA 950, I run the game with no shadows and high on everything else) which I duel-boot with windows XP. I can get all the mac versions to work fine, but the windows versions crash (not the 2.5.0)

However, because there is no cross platform support, I need the windows version to play with my friends.

Also, how do I open the .big files

Thanks, that worked great. I was able to both extract and compress the .BIG files with a program called unfbig, which can be found in here.
