Thought id get this old fun game out of my game drawer and go and play some good old rts as now they don't really exist anymore and well I tried everything the previous poster suggested and I got nothing except this error:
"You have encountered a serious error. Serious errors can be causes by
many things including viruses, overheated hardware and hardware that
does not meet the minimum specifications for the game.Please visit
So which makes me sad I really felt like playing it once again.
obviously it not the hardware I set it to xp sp3 and administrator and added options.ini with the text also changed the resolution from bigger to smaller added it to exclusions as kaspersky gave a pop up if I wanted to allow the .exe and also some affinity in Task Manager so kinda out of ideas here, anyone got a light bulb hanging up there?
Its a fault with W7 not allowing the game so store data, but if its still giving you an error reinstall, it could be all messed up from mods or a crack for another version of the game ect.
