This game is not compatible with Windows Vista

.You are lucky being able to launch the game
(maybe you did some trick?), because you should get an alert popup window at game start, and the game should be quitted immediately
Is the CTD recurrent
, always at the same date?If yes
, please contact me via private message, so that I can give you my email address. You will have to send me the savegame done just before the recurrent crash.If not
, provided this crash is not caused by Vista compatibility, I can give you the usual suggestions:
- if possible don't keep resident programs (consuming much RAM) working in background while the game runs
- disable antivirus and firewall, if any (remember that some nasty antivirus, like norton, are totally not compatible with GI, and have to be uninstalled)
- play at LOW game speed
- disable the autosave
- if you wish, you can even disable the sound & musics (in the setup tool), so saving a lot of RAM...In fact, Vista itself has a very big RAM requirement, so this game, provided it should not run (very strange!), could suffer from a major RAM need for sure running with Vista, being highly unstable if you don't have a good bank of memory
Also, be sure you are playing with the Patch 1.07b installed
... In fact, if you read the forum, you will find that this patch fixes a major stability issue that was caused by the serial-key-protection-tool.
P.s.: what's going on with the byzantine empire in that scenario? The all empire was revolting and I couldn't figure it out why
At the start of the scenario, a historical event is triggered, of religious nature I remember... You surely chose the "wrong" option, that one that causes so many turmoils in the empire!
(Probably, you did not read carefully the consequences of your choice
