whats up with that?
my os is windows 7.
There are no error messages. the music keeps playing and the computer keeps running fine. just the game is frozen.
game freezes on "options", "Load Game", "help" and when you select a campaign after pressing "new game". the other buttons work fine, but trying to exit the editor gave me a blue screen.
Please, tell me, you play in protected mode (without admin rights)? Try pressing the "S" key. In the game folder will snapshot1.png screenshot?panzers wrote:I'm having the same problem. I am not able to play

Gave the DrumsOfWar.exe admin rights through the compatibility mode, but still no gameplay possible
OS is Windows 7.
BTW: game_errors.log tells me:
action number 2
of Alarm Event for alarm 0
for object o_cntrl_all:
Error in code at line 46:
if regfile != regreestr1 && regfile != regreestr2
at position 16: Cannot compare arguments.
I sent link to the PM. Please, check it.manie_de wrote:Snapshots (snapshotx.png) were taken, but all showed only a black screen.
Looking forward to the "special version" so we can play "Drums of War"

I'm running Win7x64 / Radeon 5850 with admin rights. I've also tried XP compatibility mode, but no luck.
The freeze happens randomly, and doesn't need any input - I'm only using the mouse, so no keys have been pressed. Normally I get to play for around a minute before it dies.
Hope this info helps with the patch! Looking forward to getting stuck into the game
Hmmm... If Tarshan not die? Game freezes?darth_careful wrote:Hey Vladimir
Thanks for the fast response! That seemed to go better, but it froze in the first map at the precise moment that my character died. Log says that it's line 37 again.
(edit: I've just tried again with a crash at exactly the same point, so it seems replicable)
I'm afraid it does... I'm still getting those random freezes with v1.3Vladimir1979 wrote: Hmmm... If Tarshan not die? Game freezes?
I do not know what the problem is... You can try to reinstall the game. I'll think about it...darth_careful wrote:I'm afraid it does... I'm still getting those random freezes with v1.3Vladimir1979 wrote: Hmmm... If Tarshan not die? Game freezes?
Incidentally, I mentioned that it uninstalls my data disk when it crashes. I got an error message to say that it was trying to load one of the .ogg music tacks when that happened. Probably unimportant, but I thought I'd mention it.
Also, I've tried it on my W8 laptop, and it works fine there. So maybe this is only a W7 issue?
