- GladkMy copy of dawn of war and winter assault were working fine, but recently it hasnt started up. No message or anything, it does the spinny disc icon and the computer whirs up and all but it doesnt start. Ive tried the compatability and reinstalling. The most annoying thing is that it used to work! Anyone got ideas as to why it stopped working and how to fix it?
Im having the exact same problem. I am running WinXP Pro Sp2, i have an ATI Raedon X1800. I installed DOW and WA on my last system, The same exept and older NVidia card. Everything worked fine. The 1st time after playing WA on my new card everything worked, the game ran great ( I ramped up the gfx settings and all a-ok). But then, when i tried to run the game the second time - and now every time after - all i get is the hourgalss for a second ro two then a total system freeze (a reset-button reboot neccessary). I get no error logs or anything. Frustratingly DoW still works, its just WA. I have totally re-installed both, i scoured the registry and everything. I tried doing the compatability thing but no-dice, this is really annoying, especially as it did work and now its foobar'd.
*edit* Concidering that WA is just a Mod of DoW and uses the same bloody engine i really dont understand this.
