Regarding Homeworld 2 with the “Complex mod”. I and many others are experiencing random CTDs during play.
The problem appears to be related to the opengl driver: atioglxx.dll, and occurs only when playing the HW2 Complex mod. If playing Homeworld 2 v1.1 w/o the mod there are no issues. Below is the relevant lines from the Hw2.log file, and the ErrorLog.txt file, respectively:
