yasagani: [...] but I have been able to replicate this bug almost every time in a new game, so here's another save with it. Trying to hire Crasus from the leader screen freezes the game, same thing happens to Gizmo in the ship officers tab.[...]
Update: it seems there is an actual problem there with your save, but 0.74 DOSBox is "forgiving" and the game continues anyway. Need to investigate cause.

EDIT: As a temporary solution, you can download adjusted HESTRNGS file from below link and overwrite existing one in MOO2 subdirectory: 150\language\en\HESTRNGS.LBX
This should prevent your game from freezing upon hire leader click.
Lemme know if it indeed works.

Not sure if ever mentioned or not I as a let me say Veteran of 1000+ hours of MoO2 still found these Bugs while playing and enjoying MoO2 with the 150 patch .
Thanks for it.

Leader Pool Bug
When you pool a leader and go out of the leaders tab you can again go in it and the Leader is instant back at your homeworld.

Outpost-Colony Bug
When you arrive at a system with only astroids or Gas gigants with an outpost and colony ship at the same time.
You get first asked to settle the outpost than Colony ship even if there is no planet for a colony.
I'm not sure if you then get a crash when you try to settle then.

Fleet see bug
When you see a single battleship at the Galaxy Map and look into fleets and zoom over the fleet you see then all ships contained in the fleet even if you not scan them at the Galaxy Map for example a colony ship.

Thanks for your feedback.

Items 1&2 are known issues with the game.

Item2: there will be no crash, just a pop-up telling you, you cannot build there.

Item3: I do not quite understand what you mean, can you elaborate? tx..

Thanks mucho for savegame & screenies. That clarified it and this is actually a new bug for us, hadn't noticed it before. Great find!
Patch version 1.50.12 was just released! All details can be found in the readme:
http://moo2mod.com/patch/README_150.TXT
Only 1280x960 (scaler 2x) resolution works for me, the remaining ones just give me a black screen. And I really can't play it that way, as you can see why in the screenshot.
Also, why is this not sticky?

So it looks like you have a low-res desktop. You can try&type a custom resolution in the Launcher resolution box that is beter suited for your desktop. For example 960x720, 800x600, 700x525, etc,

Does full screen not work for you?
Typing custom resolutions didn't worked, only 1280x960 (scaler 2x) works, typing (scaler 2x) to custom resolutions also don't work.

And fullscreen don't work too, and I like to do other things in my PC while playing games, so I'm not a big fan of fullscreen in games...

'scaler 2x' is only for 1280x960 which is 2x 640x480 hence the '2x'...

then just surface / 640x480 should work
or try overlay..

Changing to overlay did work, thanks man, and why is this thread not sticky?

Great it works now!

About sticky: i don't know how to make an existing thread sticky and can't be bothered to do complicated stuff like sending a request to some mod for it. If anyone knows an easy way to make it stick, by all means lemme know.
