    I'm having a weird problem, I have STA and GMP 1,2 & 3 installed...and anytime I try to start a mission as a German tank, the mission loads to 99% and then crashes to desktop. If I use Russian, or US tanks, the missions work fine. I tried ten or so missions with the same results. Sad

    Have you tried playing the stock missions with the German tans says the Panzer III( Kyth's campaigns) or IV? If the same does not happen the it's the missions packs that are missing files .Try dis-enabling and re-enabling them to see if it solves your issues. Are all 3 missions packs giving you the problem?

    The stock German missions do work. I tried re-downloading all of the GMP packs and re-installing everything and still no good. Sad

    I've tested the next missions:
    1. Tiger at the Battlefield (Pz.VI)
    Works without problem, but with a low FPS (8-14). Though, I've found some issues:

    - it is Pz.VI ausf. H1, but it should be ausf.H (Tiger SS)
    - it didn't note what the tanks under user's control
    - there is KV-1(ekran). It should be only without "ekran". Though, I'm not sure that KV-1 took part in Kursk battle anymore.
    - there are Pz.IV F1 with kurzt gun. There should be only F2 with a long barrel. Almost didn't touch, coz it'll effect balance. I replaced only one unit 3xPz.IV F1->3xPz.IV F2 (May be I should have placed Pz.IV H?)
    All fixes will be included in the next GMP1.x version.

    2. Fury Beast Weissensee April 1945 (Pz.V Ausf.F)
    Works without problem, but with a low FPS (8-14)


    Conclusion:
    Mostly error "006: Unable to create shader" does lack of memory at er PC. So, u need to decrease game/graphic options or increase memory. STA mod needs a big memory quantity (~1.5Gb). Here's some advices how to decrease game/graphic options:


    I didn't check out the other mission, coz obviously they have the same reason of CTD. For any case disable the next modes:
    - turret displacing
    - fix widescreen
    and try again
    Did u try utility "4Gb patch"?
    After crash print out the content of the next file:
    ...Steel Fury - Kharkov 1942\out\sysinfo.log

    Can't run missions from GMP

    Post by Atlantis_Risen on Tue May 26, 2015 3:56 pm

    Thanks Lockie, I'll try your recommendations when I get home from work.  I'd be surprised if I didn't have enough RAM though, I have 8 gigs.

    What is the '4gb patch' utility?

    This is a special utility, which provide the game with additional memory. It does normally game use ~1Gb, but with this utility it'll use more memory.
    Here's FAQ:
    http://stasf2008.ephpbb.com/t30-faq-steel-fury
    2. Q. Sometimes i have code 006 shader error while loading or no error at all on some missions with certain mods or high graphics settings. How to get rid off this error?
    A. Game is using more than its 2GB memory address, modern high res displays combined with a lot of extra content added in the mods can use more than 2Gb.
    Solution:  Allow the games exe to be large address aware which gives it 2GB of virtual memory on top of its 2GB address. Requires a 64bit OS and more than 3GB physical memory and the systems swap space not disabled.
    Turn off compatibility mode on Shell.exe and Starter.exe (this is just a precaution, you can try turning it back on after but I needed to leave it off). Download this program:
    - www.ntcore.com/4gb_patch.php
    or
    - www.4shared.com/zip/AMVafQvxce/4gb_patch.html
    (or any large address aware patcher).
    Run the program on Shell.exe and Starter.exe
    NOTE: You should do this fix even if you don't have crashing since you'll never know when you'll run into it.
    First run the patch on the SF Startup.exe. Then run the patch again on the Shell.exe. Once in the Steel Fury Folder you can find the Shell.exe. in Bin>Rel>Shell. This fix worked on a PC running WIN 7, 64-bit. Also, if you're playing a long session of SF with many missions you might sporadically experience a mission failing to load as SF on newer OS systems seems to hog memory. A simple PC reboot will remedy this problem.
    32bit OS:  Harder to patch and less stable: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/large-address-aware.112556/

    Here's utility:
    http://stasf2008.ephpbb.com/t6-steel-tank-add-on-steel-fury
    4. 4Gb patch: www.4shared.com/zip/AMVafQvxce/4gb_patch.html
    To fix the problem with shader error.

    I haven't had a chance to try all of the crashing missions, but I can report that after the 4gb patch, Otto Carius Silvestri, and Tiger at the battlefield both work now. thanks! Smile

    I confirm and propably have found the reason.

    The ME is buggy: doesn't accept unit "3 x Tiger I SS"  (scriptcode: wer_platoon_htann17)  and automaticaly replaces with "2 x Pz.VI ausf. H1"  (scriptcode: wer_platoon_htann17a).
    So if the mission was resaved.....

    I've recovered this using the notepad.

    BTW: why name is "SS" not "Zimmerite"? Wasn't in use by Wehrmacht?

    I've fixed that issue.
    in the block groups() the name wer_platoon_htann17 must be first, then wer_platoon_htann17a. And the same must be in the block editor().
    Here's fixed script for the mission "Tiger battlefield".

    BTW: why name is "SS" not "Zimmerite"? Wasn't in use by Wehrmacht?
    It's a long story. First "Tiger SS" released in 2010 and had on his texture insignia "key" from the 1st Pz. Division Adolf Hitler or smth. It was identical to the original Tiger (first grey then yellow camo). After a while original 3D model of Tiger was updated, meanwhile "Tiger SS" was abandoned, coz nobody care.
    And only one year ago will1973 managed to update texture "Tiger SS" without 3D model!
    And now I see that the name subject to be changed: "Tiger SS"->"Tiger (Zimmerite)"

    Now unfortunately, the firefly mission that worked before, is crashing at 99% with the error message:

    Exception core:
    001: Error initialization program.

    Do you know what causes this?
