I turn on DOW Gold edition and it suddenly crashes, I am using Steam.
Literally spent the last 10 hours trying to fix this and it just is not working. Basically, I'm running a vista 32 bit, with a GTS 250 graphics card, 3 gigs of ram, and you know what? I don't understand why the game will ocasionally start up (after 100 tries). Please don't tell to verify my cache because I did that constantly. Every thread possible that deals with this problem never seems to get answered with an actual fix...so what do I do exactly?
(Sorry, I'm not sure how to do it correctly)Code:
