A bug I've come across in a few scenarios, I'm not sure what's causing it. (But I'm having trouble getting Zathras to work, so perhaps that's it?) But on some scenarios, when I start the module I only have like 2% hull integrity left.
I haven't played every scenario in the DVD release yet, but so far I've noticed it in the first scenario of the Infestation campaign, and the 2nd scenario of the training module set. Which really sets up a weird situation, because you simultaneously win and fail that mission from the outset.
I played through "The Raider Wars" with no problem, also ran the "The Long, Twilight Struggle" scenario and the first Brakiri War scenario without this trouble, so it's only happening on certain modules and not others.
Any ideas what might be causing this and what a fix might be? I have a Windows 7 machine, let me know what other info you might need.
