Hello everyone,

I stumbled across a ship scene in LU's files today called the "Split Madhawk". I was wondering if anyone knows what this is and why it exists. Upon adding a TShips.txt entry for it and loading it into the game, it is just the Split Tempestine model, so why would LU add this file to the game? Even more intriguing is why it was given such a funny name. Was it supposed to be its own ship at one point?

Good afternoon. Faced a problem. Maybe someone will help to solve this.

During the battle between M2-6-7 ships the game freezes. I tried 3.1 - 3.2 - 3.3 versions of the game, it did not help.

Other MODS are not worth it. Unfortunately, this problem is not just for me.

I can totally see that. This thread clearly overflows with messages from people that their systems are freezing on huge battles.

Do I have to put a sarcastic smiley after that?

The game hangs not only in big battles. If two ships leading the battle between them, the game also hangs. Prior to that, everything is fine. ((

Sorry for my English.

It's coming from you. What mods do you have? Did you try an Export / Import? A total reinstall on a fresh game?

New game, no mods. Mayhem did not install either. :(


I tried the English version of the game 3.1-3.2-3.3
I updated the driver, removed the codecs, reinstalled Windows 10, Win 7 did not help.

I tried other global mods, everything is fine. 1-2-10 ships, the war is in full swing, the game does not freeze.

Post the following information:
- game version (the bonus pack was not installed, right??? it must NOT be)
- complete list of mods/scripts installed and their versions (including LU)

Upload a save game that reproduces the problem and provide a description what to do in the game, after loading the savegame, to trigger the hanging bug. Then maybe someone can try to load your savegame on their computer and see what's happening.

If you changed nothing about your install, just post the information now.
The bugs may be a signal for a bad install. Restarting won't fix that.

I took a look at one of kecin25's freezes earlier, which involved a bit of code that runs on M1/M2/M7/TL ships which start combat in a sector without player owned ships/stations and without the player being in a neighboring sector, followed by the player entering their sector. So if you are having the same problem, jumping into high combat sectors (where you didn't have any visibility before) might tease out a freeze.

As for the bit of code itself, it was an unbounded 'while' loop with a variety of exit conditions, but no handling if "move to position" returned "invalid params", and one of the parameters came from an LU specific script command. My only guess was that it could break if the LU cat/dat files were being overridden by something higher numbered with its own x3story.obj (which holds the custom script commands). That could happen if the cat/dat file for a game patch were placed at a higher index than the LU files, though I don't know how that could happen.

Could be the Phased Array Laser Cannon bug. But it tends to crash the game.

@alexalsp: is it a freeze or a real crash with a window dialog box on the background saying that the program couldn't not respond anymore?

I flew into the zone, on assignment, to kill the deserter on M ship, accompanied by 4 fighters.

I start to shoot at it, as soon as it turns around and starts to shoot at me the game freezes. Nothing else. There are no messages or error messages. The only thing that helps is Ctrl + Alt + Del.

I unfortunately did not have the save file. To get to this task, I need to raise the combat rank. But this takes time.

When I start this task, I'll give you a save file.
:cry:

I remembered the task.
