Whenever I attempt Starbase 24 Continued, the client will crash at some point, either in combat or when setting rally points for my crew. Occasionally, I get a "what were you doing" message from the game and fill that out with what I was doing, though more often I get an error message from Windows 7 itself. Here's an example of the "Problem details" that my OS error message displays, in case it's helpful. Let me know if there's any more info I can give that would be helpful.

I got an ATI HD 4870 X2 newest drivers (9.12), dont have this issue, so it might not be an incompatibility. Also got Windows 7 (64bit).
BUT, it might be that some other components of your computer are not up to date with drivers and that will get you have this issues. It might work if you add DXdiag-LOG to your error-message, would suggest to mail it to the support-team and not post it in this forum, there are computerrelated and user-specific information in it.
Same issue here, been trying starbase 24 sometimes now, inside the station there, seems to crash at some point, but it's not fixed, though i haven't managed to do the mission once yet, without a crash.
I have 2 ATI 4850s working in Crossfire, with latest drivers. This worked for me. Go back to defaults on the video tab. Turn back on Vertical sync if you want, changed resolution if you want. Once back in the game in the chat box type /maxfps 60. I was able to complete the indoor missions after this.
So could we got a dev response or something on this please? There is numerous threads about the problem. Running ATI 5870, and am still unable to finish the mission without a crash.
Edit: I've seen some people post some kind of fixes which involves putting some graphic options off or to a lower state, maybe that fixes the problem temporary, but that shouldn't be the ultimate fix, as my computer is more than able to run this game at full.

The /maxfps 60 seems to be working for me...I've done 2 of these space-station based "ground" missions now without any problems. I left all of my settings on the video pane at max, too.
