Is it a game you have to connect to internet? if so may be a firewall needs disabled or bypassed.

or is it a multiplayer game? you may have to refer to the game makers website for any problems with certain systems or installations. also try reinstalling game again cause a file may have gotten corrupted or something and hanging up on start up causing the error. if you follow these steps and get same thing please come back to me and I'll go on further and post the game name and your pc specs i'll look further into this matter and get you up and running again soon.

I installed Onimusha 3 Demon Seige and when I tried to play the game, the screen froze before the ubisoft logo finished displaying. It also froze on a few of the following screens as well, and also during...

if it freezes and then continues to move, this is definitely because your system might not reach the necessary system requirements. there are a few things you can do.
one of them is for you to go through the readme text in the game folder and look at the system requirements or the minimum system requirements if you would prefer that. this should show you where your computer is lacking.
another thing is for you to try to free up some space on the hard disk and also try to run less programs while running the game as this would help free some virtual memory for the smooth running of the game as the computer would be processing less data.
if you can acquire a copy of bit defender anti-virus, it would really help because it comes with a package called game mode which helps you to manage active tasks or processes while you play your game.
hope this helped you?

How do u install empire total war on hp

Please try this it will work (hope so ) First u need to verify integrity of game cache

1. Load Steam
2. From the My Games tab, right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu.
3. Select the Local files tab and click the Verify integrity of game cache… button.
4. Steam will verify the game cache files (GCF’s) – this process may take several minutes.
5. Once the process is completed, the Check Window will automatically exit.
6. Run The Game

And if you want to play in offline mode, you simply make sure you are not connected to the internet, run the game and a box from the STEAM program will appear with a selection box with play in offline mode, click this and you away. Biggest problem is you will need to connect to the internet on a regular basis to log in to your steam account so steam can verify your login details, so therefore it is not totally offline, which for me is **** because i havent got the internet connection at the moment and i can no longer run the game in offline mode.

I hope this will sove your problem.

Please check the back of the packaging for your game and see that your computer meets minimal requirements also older games will not work due to age. If this game predates 2000 you may not be able to play it with out tweaking windows.
