Planet Picture Not Assigned Run Time Error

STVersion:
Version 1.2
Date:
21 Sep 1998

StepsToReproduce

When exploring a solar system [named "System # x"] I click on a planet. I get a Runtime Error 32021 "No Picture Assigned" error dialog.

ErrorMessage

Runtime error 32021 No picture assigned

Patch (9/21/98)

The solar systems having a default name were looking for a picture that did not exist. This patch replaces startrek.exe in your Star Trek folder. Unzip the contents of the patch into the folder where you installed Star Trek.

Update (5/11/99)

To correct this problem, you should upgrade to version 1.22 or higher.

Error: Invalid procedure call or argument
Procedure: STMAIN: SaveGame

cannot save games or reopen suppsed saved games

STVersion:
Version 1.21
Date:
20 Jan 1999

StepsToReproduce

BUG #1: When I tried to open a game after I had saved previous games, an error message came back: Run-time error '402' Must close or hide topmost modal from first. This happened three times. I was only able to start the game again when I opened a previously saved game which I found in the Star Trek game folder.However, this doesn't always work.

ErrorMessage

Run-time error '402' Must close or hide topmost modal from first.

Response (1/24/99)

I tried to reproduce this error to no avail. I think this might be related to certain combinations of options and when the save occurred. I am not sure. I will continue to work with the submitter to determine the problem.

crashes when trying to save games

STVersion:
Version 1.21
 
Date:
20 Jan 1999

StepsToReproduce

I played for a while, then decided to save a game, but I got the following error: Runtime error '5'. Invalid procedure call or argument.

ErrorMessage

Runtime error '5'. Invalid procedure call or argument.

Response (1/24/99)

This is another occurrance of the save bug, but I still am unable to reproduce it.  Anyone getting this error should report it to me before saving other games.

The automatic accept does not work after a few games

STVersion:
Version 1.21
OSVersion:
Windows 98
Date:
23 Feb 1999

StepsToReproduce

It happens quite often, only there isn't any one thing that seems to create it.

Response (2/23/99)

Andy III:

Thank you for submitting this report.  I would like to gather some additional information.  I am unclear on what you mean by "automatic accept."   Please give an example of what happens after it stops working.

Don:

Sorry, I meant auto target, and accept...if you are allowed to use the auto target button, then the accept button does not work.

Andy III:

I think I understand.  The flashing green panel is meant as an easy way of moving.  When the panel is press in (flashing) clicking on a quadrant in the Galactic Record window takes you to that quadrant at the closest sector. Clicking a sector in the SRS window and then a quadrant takes you to that quadrant in that sector.   Clicking a sector twice takes you to that sector in the current quadrant.  The Target Calculator works just as it did before, with the exception that when you click the Target Calculator button, the panel will stop flashing until you turn it on again.   When the Target Calculator window is displayed, clicking a sector or quadrant will just set the target, even if the panel is flashing.  The coordinates near the bottom of the Target Calculator window are updated, and clicking Accept takes you to the displayed destination.  This is how they are supposed to interact.  I tested this myself and it seemed to work exactly this way.  If this is not what you are experiencing, please contact me.  If you don't like the way it works and would like to suggest something else, please use the suggestion form.

Ultra slow graphics

STVersion:
Version 1.21
OSVersion:
Windows NT 5
Date:

Resolution (5/11/99)

Press the Start button, the point to Programs, and then locate the Star Trek for Windows 9x icon.  Right-click it and select Properties.  Click in the Target box, and press the End key.  Press the spacebar and type "/fast" without quotes.  Press OK, and try running the game again. It should be faster.

I get a "time error 53" message and the game cuts out.

Response (10/6/99)

This is the information I received from the user:

Jeff:

It stayed at 26/60 torpedoes.

It was the Denevus system and it gave me 34 upgraded torpedoes but they never showed up.  I thought I might have 126/60 torpedoes and starting firing them but after 26 I had no more.

I am unsure whether this issue is resolved. The /60 torpedoes represents the maximum upgraded torpedo storage at that time. If anyone else has a problem similar to this, please contact me.
