Experiences of Rome Total War on Windows 7 64bit
As the title asks, has anyone got Rome running without problems on a Windows 7 64 bit system and what were the hardware specs?
Thanks for any input!
I'm running RTW without any problems on a Windows 7 64 bit system.
Hi Arvenides, what hardware is in your computer?

I have tried to run Rome Total War on my windows 7 64 bit computer and just won't work it installs but when it is starting up i crashes immidiatly. any one who has a fix ?
or can explain what i am doing wrong ?
No problem at all, 4GB RAM, Intel E8400, 160GB 15 year old hard-drive (lol), Nvidia 250GTS.
Thans for reports, which are promising for me upgrading my PC. I suppose you guys are running RTW in 32-bit mode?

There's been talk about how users could run it on Windows Ultimate 64 bit but not on, say, Home Premium. This is still debated since posters here have stated their Home Premium 64-bits systems run the game fine. I doubt its a hardware issue if you can run RTW on a older Windows but not on Win7 64bit. The closest would be your hardware doesn't have compatible 64-bit drivers, thus indirectly contributing to being unable to play RTW on a 64-bit computer.
