game suddenly stopped working?

#1cliffo1992Posted 1/24/2008 7:47:02 PM
I have been playing this game for the last month, not had a problem with it.
But now everytime I try to open a Kingdoms game nothing happens. Half the screen goes black and I have to close it.

This is what I see:

Anyone know what the problem is?
It only started yesterday. I have tried re-installing it but that didnt work.

Go to the last section under m2:tw boards you'll see tech. section look there but 1 thing you may or may not know is this ..


If you try to use the 2 regular ways to un-install this game by

A- use of game included way..

B-use of remove program way..


You need to remove the SEGA folder then try again clean..

Ok thanks.
So I have to take out the original Total War aswell?
Because that is working, just not kingdoms.

The only way to get a clean uninstall is ..... yes you'll have to get rid of sega which means every thing.. but since you have kingdoms patch 1.02 & .03 are on it so not quite as long ..

Ok I deleted the SEGA folder, but now when I put the disk in it says Uninstall.

I click it and then it tells me to remove 1.03.00 version.

Im lost.

what's the actual problem and what's the solution? pray tell so that we all will know how to deal with it in the future.
There is no 'I' in 'TEAM'... but there's a big 'ME' lurking in there.

Ok well the problem is when I try to open the game, it doesnt open.
Just most of the screen goes black.

So far there is no solution. People have told me to uninstall the game.
I have tried all 3 ways.

.Uninstalling through disk
.Remove Programs
.Deleting the SEGA folder.

Still doesnt work.
It was working fine untill yesterday?
Can someone please help me. I really want to play it.

What graphics card you got?, are the drivers updated ? did you just upgrade before trouble some times some games won't work with most recent drivers or opposite ..

try the tech section has every black screen/ctd covered ..
