I've been playing SS for a while and recently decided to go back to DC. Well for some reason once the lame intro is over the game simply crashed. So I think to myself, 'Well I never did beat WA.' Go to play that and wouldn't ya know it, I get that nice pic of a Imp Guard and then the thing crashes. As of now only DoW and SS are working. Reinstalling likely won't fix the problem since I just got done installing them when I found this problem. Anyone got a solution that won't leave me going WAAAGH!
So DOW works but WA inside the same directory doesn't?
bingo. I don't get it myself. there is absolutely no excuse for it since I've: 1) reinstalled everything before SS. 2) Had my mother board replaced 3) did a total system restore before the motherboard thing which should have set the thing back to stock settings Not sure if its related but I've also found I can't install BfME II which was another game that worked perfectly until recently.
So nobody has a solution?
Well the standard questions.Did you install DC into a seperate directory and WA into DOW's?
standard install directory was in a different folder so yes.
so anyone have a possible solution?
How exactly do those two crash?
Try posting the error log.
HAHA!!! I got WA working! While dragging up those error logs (which I'm still doing) I noticed that there were some pics in the WXP folder from DC. upon further investigation I found the problem. I'd accidentally installed a mod for DC to WA and completely forgotten about it. I'll get the logs for DC but I'm also going to check if it might have the same problem. There actually were no error logs for WA so if I can't find any for DC I'll start hunting the little daemons down. Edit: Well ain't that interesting... I got DC to work through the uber paint mod's .bat file... And suddenly I may know why it wouldn't work... I uninstalled the witch hunter mod a long time back but I believe that was the last mod I used... Wow... I feel like a bit of an idiot for not having thought of these things... Anyways thanks for the help...
