Hello,

I have an issue with the Imperial Concourse. Whenever the mission opens there the game freezes on a black fullscreen. I can tell the custom mouse pointer does load, but it gets sent to the top right corner and then the game crashes. The music for the Imperial Concourse works for a couple seconds, then stops.

The Rebel Concourse works fine, and so does the Family Base.

Please help! :?

I think I have the same problem here. Installed the Ultimate Craft Pack 2.6 with the "Imperial Star Destroyer Hangar and Concourse Files" option selected, every other option left on default.

The game starts, I see a black screen and a mouse cursor in the upper left screen. After about 5 seconds the music stops and the game freezes, I can only end it in the taskmanager. Any advice would be appreciated.

Edit: It also doesn't work with the "Death Star II Hangar and Concourse Option"

The problem is known and there is a fix, but I'm not able to send it now...please wait a couple of days.
Darksaber should be able to help you...maybe he has already added the fix in his DSUCP fix...?

I forgot about that, thanks DTM for the Fix

Ok I've created a small installer to fix the Imperial Concourse, you can download it from Craft Pack Fixes for DSUCPv2.6/XWAUCPv1.6

Holy crap I was dealing with this for several days. Changing the pilot actually helped me though. What was causing it?

I set a 2nd installation of XWA in order to test the Ultimate Craft Pack
Sorry but the patch (5.758 KB) doesn't work: black screen.
Sad since I loved the Imperial concourse at the time Imperial Mod existed...

I don't understand what you mean by "the patch (5.758 KB)"

Download it again it a lot bigger than that!

Hi Darksaber,

The link you provided points to a rar which does not longer exist:
Craft Pack Fixes for DSUCPv2.6/XWAUCPv1.6
But it gives access to the exe file which size is 5.758 KB
The document name you requested (/archive/CraftPackFix_2019_06_29.rar) could not be found on this server. However, we found documents with names similar to the one you requested.

Available documents:

/archive/CraftPackFix_2019_06_29.exe (common basename)

Please consider informing the owner of the referring page about the broken link.
Then I have error 404 message.

Of course I already installed DSUCPv2.6.

OK it was the wrong file but the link given was "misleading".

Good link:
Sat Jul 06, 2019 - DSUCPImpConcourseFix.rar - Extract it from the rar file and run the exe, Please Note: This Fix is for the DSUCPv2.6 ONLY, It will fix a crashing problem when the Imperial Concourse is installed.

Size file: 829 KB.

It works flawlessly. Thx for the patch!
