Great Battles of Rome won't run!

Post by nateg » Sun Oct 04, 2009 11:28 pm

After installing game and I click to play it, the normal stuff comes up and then I click the ESC button to start the game and my screen goes to all tiles. Top left tile or square has a wrench on it I click on it and nothing happens. I've tried both two install Directx and not to but same results.
I'm running Vista Home Basic,
AMD Athlon 2650e
1.6 GHz
2.00GB memory
120 GB hard drive with
NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 graphic card.
Can anyone help!

This is a known bug with certain recent nVidia drivers. We have contacted them asking for a fix, but I don't have a timeline as to when it is going to happen.

Check out this thread for a workaround:


if you roll back your drivers then it will fix the issue. As I say, we have contacted nVidia, but it may well be that fixing a bug which affects a pretty old game is not high on their list :(
