    Post CTD when any animated picture comes up! Help

    I am getting CTD everytime an animated picture comes up in the strategic map. For example, whenever I exterminate populace or a faction is destroyed, a nice animation used to come. But ever since I wiped my hard disk clean and reloaded RTW, these CTDs come. They are a big annoyance as if I am not careful and left click any of those portraits, the game crashes. This is especially so after I have won a battle. By the way, I dont have the patch. I do have directx 9.0c. If anyone got any solutions, please help!

    Sapi, this problem has come up only after I reinstalled the windows. Before that there was no such problem. And the drivers are just the same as before. I don't have SP2 by the way.

    No, I am not playing the senate, plus this problem only started when I reinstalled XP and RTW. I guess I am missing some program like Quicktime player or God knows what. Anyway, I have now learned to adjust with it. But it is just that I will never win in this game 'officially' ever again. The winning animation always crashes the game. Thanks for your time.

    Try the re-install of windows media player. It sounds like the codec is having issues as it's only on videos. If I remember correctly I had the same issue myself, a new reinstall of WMP worked.

    Emperor, please edit your post before someone does it for you. Profanity has no place in this forum.
