    Exclamation Battles Crash!

    Whenever I start up a custom battle or quick battle, it goes to the loading screen then when you hear the scroll unwind, it blacks out and gives me the message "Medieval 2: Total War encountered an unspecified error and will now exit." I want to do battles when I'm in campaign but every time I do, it gives me this and exits out, leaving my preciously gained progress unsaved. Is there a fix to this? (Image below)

    I was having the same problem for a while, too. It turns out that, at least in my case, the problem was caused by unpacking the game files: there were two files that had something wrong with them, and need to be deleted. They both had "geography" in the name (I believe they were "\data\descr_geography"). Deleting those two files fixed the problem.

    I hope that helps. :)

    I found the place I originally read about the fix at:

    It's the "data\descr_geography_new.txt" and "data\descr_geography_new.db" files that need to be deleted, for anyone that doesn't want to bother with the link.

    Weird. I can't find those files anywhere in the m2tw folder. I unpacked everything...
