Reason: Need to update the error
Sounds like a problem with the intro video. Update your video drivers and ensure your Directx is at least 9.0C (note the C).
If you still can't fix it, create an empty text file called skipcredits.txt and place it in your MTW folder. This will cause the game to skip playing the intro and possibly avoid the crash (downside is that you can't watch, but you might be able find it on youtube).
I've just bought and installed the Gold Edition of Medieval:Total War.
It lets me play the battle tutorial. But when I try to play the Campaign tutorial or actually play a campaign, it crashes to desktop.
Any help or advice would be much appreciated!

I have exactly the same problem. If anybody or you, sie282, found an answer, it would be great to be able to play the campaign once again...
