That's wierd... O.K. yeah, its probably the vista thing... Or it might be the download. When you downloaded the game you might of gotten a faulty copy i.e. the game file has a virus. If it is the "vista" thing, than download the game onto another computer that can play it. Like how you said the game would work fine on your old XP PC, than it sounds like that's the computer you have to use. My advice, keep looking for different downloads to get the game, and keep searching for patches to try and fix the problem, if all else fails buy the game or call tech support. Hope this helps

My rome total war game keeps shuting down every few minutes, what is wrong?


Sounds like a bad graphics card in the computer. Verify that the fan on the graphics card is actually turning, it may be heating up and shutting down.

First thing is first, go to your install folder. (This is usually found in the C;\program files folder, i forget the full command path) and see if the .exe file is there. If it is not, try uninstalling and reinstalling the game.

Vista is trick like that.
  1. Un-install it fully, then re-install it.
  2. But before you play it you have to right click on the shortcut and go to properties and click the button that tells it to run as if it is xp.
  3. Update the game, there should be a few of those.
Well and give yourself permission to play the game. Vista is bad at that.

You should be good. Let me know how it goes.

You need to go to the Microsoft Website and download a DirectX Runtime update. This error is simply the result of your Direct X runtimes not being up to date. The link to the download is

Rome Total War!‏


That is your problem. If the game is not compatible with Windows Vista, It won't play it, or play it normally. What I mean is that the game is pretty old (in date created), and the software used to create it was not meant for Vista. Because Vista came afterwards (I think). And Vista has to downgrade while running the game. But it could only downgrade so much. And when it downgrades, it's actually working harder to play the game than having a whole bunch of stuff open at the same time. Vista playes it, but only for a while, because it's not going to downgrade any more.

Hope this helps.

P.S. If you want to play the game, I recomend you get a computer with XP.
