Sorry, but I have no idea what's causing this, and I'm not having any of these issues. Maybe try the loose packfile version, as it is more stable. Did you use Viper's ASM updater tool? Maybe double-check if you used the tool correctly. Or maybe check the FAQ thread to see if it's just a general SRTT problem.
I completely forgot to say that month after i found and fixed the problem myself
it was a strange lack of needed code in the 'object_indicator.str2_pc' file
i recall trying to run my game without it, which was not successful, so i compared it with the original file and finding the problem out
i don't remember what i changed exactly, but i do have the fixed file which i attach to this reply in case someone else got that problem (if you don't mind of course)
