Ok so I've played Rome and Barbarian Invasion plenty of times before on my desktop without any sort of trouble but decided to uninstall about a year ago. Today however i decided i wanted to re-install Rome Total War. It installed quickly and had no problems i decided not to install Gamespy arcade and made a shortcut.
The problem came when i decided to try and play the actual game I've tried launching from both desktop shortcut and game disc menu but a small window comes up saying that 'RomeTW.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close'. when i look into the error report it says that the following files are included 'C:\DOCUME~1\Daniel\LOCALS~1\Temp\8d2c_appcompat.txt'
Would be really nice to play Rome again sometime so please help if possible. Thanks.
