Hello, I recently installed Orbiter on my laptop. However when I open the launcher and select a scenario and click "launch orbiter", it just doesn't load. The whole orbiter crashes.
Was wondering if anyone knows how to fix the issue and get the game to work. Would appreciate any help, thank you.
Here's what it says when I try to launch Space Shuttle Atlantis: Final Approach::

Your missing a stock spaceship, a main part of the Orbiter core. Your install is broken, suggest re-installing.
Do other senerios work? Try the Deltaglider.

Thinking the same.... seems, that in the modules folder the atlantis.dll is missing or corrupt.... as buck rogers says, a re-installation may help

ERROR: DDraw error DDERR_BLTFASTCANTCLIP
This is new, it wasn't in the first log (the missing atlantis seems to be solved).
This is a graphics issue, check your gfx settings (they seem to have been working before).

So nothing comes out is just crashes? do you have the graphics set correctly?

So when I load it it shows the loading screen with the earth for a few seconds and then the window just closes by itself.
I haven't changed any graphics settings.

Can you try using D3D9?
Okay I downloaded the file and placed the d3d9.dll into the orbiter folder. Doesn't seem to change anything
still says this and crashes

To install D3D9Client you need to extract the contents of the zipfile into your main Orbiter folder while making sure that the folder stays intact. Then you need to launch Orbiter_NG (blue icon) and enable it in the Modules tab.

This is what I have for default. But it might change due to which graphics card

It still crashes after doing all of that

Have you the same error (ctd) in full screen mode, with max. possible resolution? maybe the ratio doesn't fit...
