I have Rome total war gold edition and I install it ok but when i go to play it wont start, it exits to the desk top right before the video intro/logo's are supposed to play. My computer reaches all minimum specs and I've updated to windows media player 11.

The thing is I've happily played this version of the game on my PC in the past, and after a few failed attempts [well i thought hey where fails because the same thing happened with the downloaded versions] to download versions of the the game I went and bought it.

Ive searched for posts with people with similar problems but no solution has presented to be a fix.

desperately need help here.

Hello and welcome to TSF!

Have you downloaded any patches or updates for the game? You may try with a fresh installation or try with the latest updates. You should also post your specs (CPU GPU Ram etc).

Download Revo uninstaller from my sig
use it to uninstall the game and all its remaining from your hard disk and registry when prompted
restart your PC and install the game again
I suggest you install the latest Directx also from my sig
also download and install:
C++ 2010 redsit:
Download details: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86)

Framework 4.0:
Download details: Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer)

RockmasteR:
tried all you suggested to no avail

my specs are

512mb of ram
processor - 1.66GHz AMD AthalonXP 2000+
SIS Xaber 400 128mb video card
your standard 24 bit soundblaster audio card
OS - windows XP professional

and i don't think i can patch higher than what the gold edition had already came with, I tried installing the 1.5 and 1.6 patches and both said they where not compatible with the gold edition. Is there a more recent patch?

like i said i have played the game on my PC before, a while ago, with little hassle.
