Question about Legacy Interactive E.R. The Game for Windows

ER Game error

I received this game to play on my laptop for xmas and I am having trouble playing it. It installs without any problems but then it all goes wrong. I double-click on the shortcut and a box comes up saying it is reading the disk. The screen then goes black with a moving sand-timer. After a little while a white line border appears on the screen but this disappears after a few seconds leaving me with the sand-timer. A few seconds later a white box comes up saying the game encountered an error (no code) and to click ok to continue. When I do this I just go back to my desktop.
My laptop is a Packard Bell Easynote MX-37-U-041 with Sis 3+ graphics (M672 I believe) with Vista OS. I can play the game perfectly on our home PC with XP OS and it also works on my brothers Vista laptop and my old XP laptop so it is obviously something with my laptop that is stopping it playing. Hope someone can help me with this!

After installing Medieval 2 Total War Gold, when i boot the game up i get an error message saying an unspecified error has occurred and the game will now quit. how can i fix this issue


Sorry to hear about your trouble. I own all of the Total War series and they are very great games. I will try to get you up and running so you can enjoy that classic!

I have heard of this error coming up due to corrupt game files. Meaning, you play a campaign and after 50 turns a certain saved game will be corrupted. The solution is to delete the game file, which would cause you to lose that play time but it will fix the error.

If you have not even started playing, then most likely there was an error during installation of the game. Try uninstalling the game, reboot the computer then reinstall the game.

Another possible issue is that your machine does not meet the system requirements to play the game, thus causing it to crash. Check and make sure your system meets the minimum system requirements.

Also, make sure your computer has updated drivers for the graphics card.

Lastly, if none of the above helps you, I would recommend contacting the support team for the game.

Since windows 7 you cant Host a game anymore! The only chance to host and play Hidden & Dangerous Deluxe under Windows 7 is to install VMWare Player and then install WinXP on it (VERY EASY AND FAST, you need a WinXP CD or a ISO file). Then you have to activate Direct3D under the settings of VMWare and it installs automatically VMWare Tools. After this you can install H&D Deluxe on the VM and play the game in full resolution and full speed (fps) without any error!

This helps if you have problems with hosting a game under Win7 with these errors:

It installs but wnt play

Your computer probably can't handle the game. Make sure your Operating System meets the requirements of what the game calls for. If it does and it still does not play, call the Maker of your game, and they should be able to trouble shoot it. Best of luck, sorry this is happening to you!
