  1. As you start it up its asking to install the New Worlds CD, also at the end of the install its asking to view the STNW.reg file but when you do it advises not to add it because it may cause issues on your system, do you know why it asks to view the .reg file?

  2. Followed the notes and noticed theres no Movies folder in the C drive as stated, it just seems to just dump the files directly in the C drive, also I get message saying it needs CD when you start the game when I try to start it, isn't there a no CD patch for this game?

    1. Same happens to me every time i try to install it. I tried with the original cd in drive and putting all the movie files in a by me created Movie folder in the root of my C drive. Still no success :-( Wolud love to play this game again.

    2. Hopefully it gets sorted, I know it was mentioned in the comments for Dominion Wars and on their Facebook, I tired to manually create a Movies folder and no success, I just hope theres a solution to why it keeps asking for CD when you try to play it, in the reg file it just has a cdrom value and is default to C but tried different drive letters and nothing

  3. Did anybody have some luck on the issue with the CD issue ?

    1. No its still an issue, I know Biffman said on comments on the facebook page he will look into it when he has the time but yeah I can't get it to work still.

    2. Theres an updated installer that should fix the issue with the Movies folder and the noCD issue but now I'm at a point where if I start a mission it just has a black screen and nothing happens

      Delete
  4. Sorry guys, I made an error in the installer. The six .bik movie files, "BINKPLAY.EXE" and "KAPROMO.EXE" install to the root of the C: drive by mistake and not c:\MOVIES. You can manually create the MOVIES folder and move these over. I'm working on a 2nd revision now.

    There isn't a NoCD patch out there, but the game uses the registry to determine where the CD drive is. This must be imported to the registry otherwise it will come up with a NoCD error. More details are found in the chamber notes.

    Importing any registry string from a .reg file will always give you that warning, regardless of its origin, but I've tried to be open and honest with what it does in the Chamber Notes and how you can check it yourself. Hopefully this will give you confidence to run it.

    1. I've tried it again and still get the CD issue, When I open the reg file in Notepad it shows it as this;

      Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Interplay\StarTrekNewWorlds\1.0.0]
      "CDRom"="C:\\"

      I've changed the letter to D as I have the game installed on that drive, not sure if anything else needs filling out, I saved it then ran the file and it updated and put the details in regedit but still get the CD message

      Delete
    2. I've got a little further, the MOVIES folder is in the game directory but when I load it says it can't open the video files even though they've been moved, I get to main menu and select a mission and then it just goes to black screen and says not responding on the task manager and crashes

      Delete
    3. The MOVIES folder needs to be placed at the root of whatever drive is in the registry (default is C:\, in your case D:\). The MOVIES folder cannot be in any other location than the root of the drive specified in the registry. Where the game itself is installed makes no difference; you can copy and paste the game install directory anywhere and it should run as long as the MOVIES folder is where the registry says it is.

      I can't say I've got any hang ups in the game itself. My first thought would be to run as administrator, but the location of the MOVIES folder may also be confusing the program.

      Delete
    4. Done a fresh install, left it as C on the reg file, it loaded the video files fine, got to main menu but still as soon as I select a mission it goes to not responding and get a black screen and crashes even when running it as Administrator

      Delete
    5. I can't say for sure as I have no way to test it, but I did notice on PCGaming Wiki that the game won't run from a drive formatted in FAT32. Try copying the install files to a USB or another drive formatted to NTFS to see it that works (no need to reinstall). I suspect this only affects the game install and not the MOVIES folder, which can likely stay where it is.

    6. The D drive is already an NTFS drive i do have a USB stick which I will test. I also have an external drive so will try it on those and let you know

      Delete
    7. Tried it, same issue, USB is NTFS and external drive is NTFS and still does the same thing

      Delete
  5. I just found out about an unofficial patch that's available through the TrekCore website. I'll supply the link below. There's also a file for bonus missions too.

    I downloaded and installed patch, but when I tried to run the game, I got a prompt to install the CD again. So do you think you could incorporate this patch into your version?

  6. Also, the game will randomly crash, with the interface becoming unresponsive for a while before the screen goes black, though I can still hear sound. ALT-TABbing doesn't work, so I have to sign out and sign back in again. Could you look into this as well?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Any updates on this, was their a solution to why the game would crash when starting any mission or the issue Lord Slithor has mentioned?

    1. I found a fix for the random crashes, and probably the crashing when you start missions. If it's linked to runtime errors, the you need to get different Wine3D files.

      Go to this website: https://fdossena.com/?p=wined3d/index.frag

      Download the pre-Vulkan Wine3D files version 4.5 and copy "ddraw.dll," "libwine.dll," and "wine3d.dll" into the STAR TREK - NEW WORLDS folder, replacing the ones that are there. Then rename the "ddraw.dll" file to "ddra2.dll." (There may already be a file there by that name. Just remove it.)

      Go and run the game. It should now operate crash free!

      Delete
    2. It still doesn't work I'm afraid. Did you downlaod the latest version of pre-Vulkan or the old version?

      Delete
    3. It should be the pre-Vulkan 4.5 staging. Did you get rid of the "ddra2.dll" file in the original installation? Replace that with the "ddraw.dll" file from the pre-Vulkan 4.5 and rename *that* "ddra2.dll."

      Delete
    4. Dont know how but that seems to be now working thanks

      Biffman, if you're reading this, It looks like the solution Lord Slithor mentioned seems to have resolved the issue with missions not loading, could it be something that could be added in an updated installer?
