Problem with Custom Battle

Postby Arquebusier » Sun Mar 23, 2008 4:49 pm

In a nutshell, after setting up the army in American Total War and clicking start, the loading bar goes about 1/4 of the way and the game crashes. Any ideas? Sorry for being so vague, but this is all that happens. I have VI and Napoleonic Total War.

What setting have you set your unit size? I believe that on the huge setting one of the units exceeds the engine's capacities and will caused the game to crash. This may not be your issue, but it is a good place to begin.

Yep, as Lady Meg said, huge sizes will cause a crash with the VMI Cadets (ACW) and the Minutemen (AWI.)

Go into your options or menu settings and then video settings. There is a slider for the unit size.

That is the unitprod file.

The game was not balanced for huge; that is why that remained.
