Medieval Total War crashes

SkittleBuk1SkittleBuk1 Posts: 4Registered Users
The game crashes every time a large invasion takes place (say 3-4k troops total both sides included). I automatically resolve every battle anyway so I don't even need it to load the actual troops, but I guess they do that anyway in the background before even giving us the option to auto resolve? Idk, this is stupid and totally game breaking

    The first medieval total war? I'm actually surprised it works at all on modern systems. A lot of incompatibilities can cause that, very difficult to point a specific cause.

    They still sell it, so it should work

    They still sell it, but system requirements cut both ways. Ancient games aren't supposed to work flawlessly on modern machines.

    Mine works pretty well, after I bought it on Steam. Still have my original disc, purchased when the game cam out. A Windows update, several iterations ago, stopped recognizing the CDM code. After messing around with it for awhile, I bought the game on Steam during one of the sales they have from time to time. Game runs fine.

    All that said, this not the correct area for a Medieval discussion. I'm moving but strongly recommend contacting Sega Support and report the issue. Creative Assembly does not review the 'ancient' games anymore.

    Yeah, I know. So what? I'm just here to see if anyone else has the same issues and if I can fix it. I know it's an old game. I wanna indulge in some nostalgia
