I read the previous post about this and tried to run the game and the trainer in a variety of different sequences.. the end result is always the same:
The game goes to the splash screen as normal, the boot up when loading the game seems to be normal.. the empire total war mouse cursor replaces my windows cursor - then white screen crash..!
the initial error message that appears on the white screen is: Error signature AppName: empire.exe AppVer: 126.96.36.199 ModName: ch.dll ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 000010f5
if I cntl + alt + delete and try to close empire total war by clicking on 'end now' the error message becomes: Error signature szAppName: Empire.exe szAppVer: 188.8.131.52 szModName: hungapp szModVer: 0.0.0.0 offset: 00000000
the 2 files it wants to report contents of are: Empire.exe.mdmp and appcompat.txt
(i copied and pasted the screen as a jpeg if needed)
I am using game Version 1.3.1 Build 1139.2308 Trainer patch 8
and suggestions or even better solutions would be much apreciated
