Treatment 1 - make sure you're using the very latest drivers for your chipset.
Treatment 2 - Drop AGP setting back one step.

Those 2 treatments have helped me in the past.

if anyone posts a bug, be sure to check back about once a day to see if the SCP team posted a fix/workaround.  This is also helpful if we need to ask questions

I have a problem with FRED_open(from 3.5.5) and FRED_open_r (from FS2Open_3_6-Installer). When I select a subspace background and press error checker it shows nothing, but when I try load or save this mission( with subs. backgrnd) it shows this and crashing the FRED:

Can't open palatte file
File: E:\Languages\Visual studio projects\Visual C++\fs2_open\code\Palman\PalMan.cpp
line:342
PLEASE HELP.

Why in god's name were you mixing 3.5.5 with 3.6?

You can't load 3.6 missions in 3.5.5 but the other way around should work fine.

The subspace palette problem is a know problem from the original version of FRED2 that should have been fixed by 3.5.5 though. You may wish to try this work around in the meantime. Copy a PCX file from elsewhere (any file will do so you might as will pick a small one) and rename it to gamepalette-subspace.pcx.  Place this file in your effects folder.

Annorax : As for why still use 3.5.5, It is a lot more stable than 3.6.

Mantis has had problems with people registering using hotmail addresses. Otherwise it's just a case of going to the site and registering.

Is it normal with any mods for Fs2, the game close itself ??
I 've just install the Media VP 3.6.5 and use the 02.11.2004 fs2_open_r.exe from Goober, i can play the game just for few minuts and then suddenly the game close itselft.

I activated thoses options in the Features :
 -spec -glow -pcx32 -jpgtga -d3dmipmap -ship_choice_3d -targetinfo -orbradar -pcx2dds -loadonlyused -fps -max_subdivide -env -alpha_env -decals

@MetalDestroyer, -loadonlyused is likely your problem.  I have fixed some of the code but it still will crash on quite a few missions.

I'd also suggest you use Goober's 11/06 build unstead of the 11/02 build.  Finally, unless you have an Uber system, you may want to disable some of those features you've activated.  Most people will tell you that -pcx32 does very little use, and mostly uses up memory space.  What are your critical system specs?

Ok thanx, i will try.
My specs are :
AMD Athlon XP [email protected]+
768 Mo DDR Ram 333
ATI Hercules 9800 Pro
Asus A7N8X Deluxe

Oh i forgot to mention a sound problem with Fs2 and the Nvidia's APU (SoundStorm) .
The sound will be off after playing some mission and I have to reboot my computer if i want to restore sound for any others games/Windows.

You're using on-board sound?  Ya, you'll have difficulties with that.  I'm using the on-board sound on my ASUS A7V600-X and the drivers haven't been updated since 2003.  I was doing better in terms of sound when I still had my old Creative Labs SB-Live! Value.  As soon as I can warrant the expenditure, I'm gonna go out and grab an Audigy2 Value, 'cause on-board sound is CRAP!  When ever things in FSO get dicey (Inferno mission "Nemesis" is a noteable example) suddenly all of my game sounds are replaced with loud buzzing noises.  I then have to pause and turn down the volume, but then I can't hear the missile launch sound or know when a nearby beam cannon is powering up and about to vapourize me.

Your system power seems decent.  In most respect it out-classes my system.  In addition to the -pcx32 and -loadonlyused tags, there are a few more tags in your list, which are somewhat redundant or not as useful.  -ship_choice_3D just replaces the ship selection ani in the preflight screen with a rotating image of the actual pof file, like in the techroom.  Its realy only useful for anyone making a MOD that doesn't want to have to make a new ani for it.  -alpha_env will work better than just standard -env, but not all canon ships have alpha-environment shinemaps yet, which causes any ship without these to look somewhat strange.  I'd advise keeping to just -env until Lightspeed completes his work on these.  -decals, while a cool effect, are still a bit buggy and may have some memory leaks.  You may get a performance boost if you disable this feature.

Later!

Thanx Trivial Psychic.
For the sound, i don't have those noise in Fs 2 but when i play a game like MGS 2 Substance, those noise disturbs me enough. In other case, the APU is quite good.
I think i have to buy a sound card like a Audigy too. Erf, i think for christmas i'll will buy a sound card :p

Well...I am new to this community and I tried to play FS2 on the net with FS open but everytime I try to make a server it always crashes. So i tried it in debug-mode and got this:
