I was wondering if anyone has encountered this problem or if anyone could suggest a solution.... I have loaded Rome TW in twice and when i go 2 start the game I'm getting a message which says I have the incorrect disc in the drive, please use correct disc and retry.. thing is.. i'm definitely using the Disc one.. I had the same problem with Medieval TW's expansion and as a result couldn't play it.. I have an AMD 2.08 processor, with 512 MBR, I have a Nvidia GeForce 5200 graphix card, I regular disc drive and a CD-RW/DVD (player) drive and I have an Audigy sound card. 2 hard drives one 10 gig "starting" HD and then the main 80 gig HD... Someone suggested that this might be a mapping issue between the HD's.. but they were not sure.. any suggestions would be helpful.. i'm even considering a total reformat of my PC 2 see if that will resolve this. :(
What exactly do you mean with "i have loaded Rome TW in twice"?
Sorry.. wot I mean is that i installed it and it didn't work so i deinstalled it and reinstalled it in a my other drive.. still didn't work tho. :( First time i used my CD-RW drive.. and the second I used my regular.. was kinda desperate 2 get it working some how. hehe :)
Well, some drives have problems with certain cd's copyright protection, usually there is something like a patch for those drives around. But it's unlikely if both drives don't want to work. Take a look at the readme, maybe at the official TW forums. And if nothing else helps get a nocd-crack, those things aren't illegal as far as I know. PM me if you'd like a link to a site where you can get such things.
Thanx 4 the advice.. I really appreciate it. :) I got a version from a site and downloaded it. Got an error message saying mss32.dll is missing, reinstall application and may solve problem. I de-installed and reinstalled.. same problem.. I then downloaded from another site mss32.dll and put it into the application files where the existing one was.. and still no banna.. I have downloaded 2 cracks one for version 1 and one for version 1.1.. hummm
I'll just send you a PM with a link to the site where I get those cracks when I need them. Before you try it out, make sure you correctly uninstall the whole game. If you know how to do it, look in the registry if everything about Rome has been deleted. But don't mess around there if you didn't already do it a few times, otherwise you might get more problems. Then install the game, try a crak for the first version, save those files which will be modified. If it doesn't work, replace the exe with the original file, patch the game and try another crack. Hope this helps :)
I'll check the thingy U sent now.. ;) This is the reply i got from activision.. humm.. Further to your correspondence of 17 November 2004
# Change the DMA setting on the CD-ROM drive.
# If you have a motherboard with an Nforce chipset then you will need to go to http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?PAGE=drivers and get the latest Nforce Unified drivers.
# Hold down the left shift key when inserting the game disc.
# Make sure you have 32 bit drivers for your CD-ROM drive.
# Set the CD-ROM cache size to zero.
# Make sure the drive letters for the CD-ROM is set correctly.
# Make sure that the location for CD music to play is set correctly.
# Make sure your system can successfully play Audio CD's.
# Turn off Auto Insert Notification.
Well, try that out. Also try to run the game on a friend's computer, maybe the CD is damaged or dirty. Perhaps you can give me the exact name of your CD/DVD drive?
Well guess who had a late nite last nite? hehe Yea it worked a treat.. i was kind of suprised when it did and feeling quite pesimistic.. but next thing i knew was "bling" the start up sequence.. hehe
