    Try to restart your computer. Also, have you done anything to your computer lately? Installed Nero? Installed any other software? Installed any new hardware or driver?

    See the validation thread for various solutions that have helped people.

    Try to uninstall Nero and see if it makes any difference. Also, the validation tool could give some clue as to what has changed within EB or the vanilla files.

    So, what is the problem with Nero? I have Nero on my computer and have never experienced any problems, should I expect some?

    I also have a very old version of Nero, which causes no problems. I don't know why some version of it does, but it does . Several people have reported that EB works again after uninstalling Nero.

    Hope is growing within the Subedei....Nero? CTD? Both true for my EB setting, well at least the CTD and I was not aware of that relation. Who found the connection?

    Plus I ain´t using NERO anyways.

    Maybe this will mean my reintroduction to the EB world....all the new staff I only read about in the forums...We will see....

    Can't really remember who, but someone remembered his brother having installed Nero since he last played EB, and lo and behold it worked when he uninstalled it again. There are lots of accumulated tips to get EB working in the validation sticky.

    i ran the validation test and here are the results

    You seem to have a corrupt install. There are changes to files, or some are missing.
    However, these may be conscious changes you have made, to remod EB. See below for details.
    ==========
    Changed file: .\data\credits.txt (expected checksum 632aad51f3a61c5da34140e4fa28800b, got b0a7954002857cc32e253a5e08b5c194)

    Not really... Those changes listed are caused by:
    *Using RTW Gold
    *Installed Oasis temp fix
    *Installed permanent fixes
    *Playing multiplayer (and saving some preset armies)
    *Taking some screenshots

    None of them are supposed to cause any problems. This end-of-turn crash, is it a specific game or when you run any campaign?

    This is due to the Oasis temp fix that you have installed.

    Changed file: .\eb\data\export_descr_character_traits.txt (expected checksum c4c0d6f516b49718cec1c2e0f4206dcf, got 89e5df7332237cb4150affdd13565eba)

    These are due to the permanent fixes that you have installed.

    In general: No, your changed files should not cause the problem. Something else "must" be amiss. I don't know what that might be though. Possibly something similar as what Stone and Blood is struggling with. Which of the solutions in the validation sticky have you tried so far?

    Please be a bit more detailed. I've crossed out the ones I see that you've definitely tried.

    _ Using a nocd crack? Your game won't work, use the original executable instead. There is no point in trying the rest of the list until you install a fresh, clean 1.5 RTW.
    _ Install RTW and EB once again, from scratch
    _ Install using 7-zip rather than installer
    _ Download a map.rwm file and place it in eb/data/world/maps/base (requires both the disaster and Oppida permanent fixes)
    _ Add -nm to the shortcut. This disables movies. Using an NVidia 8xxx graphics card? No movies for you, you will probably HAVE to add this switch.
    _ Delete some interfering files that Vista hides in its bowels
    _ For Vista users, install RTW and EB in a folder outside of "program files". This means changing the default location! You can also try to simply move the RTW installation, but you may be missing some files, so installation is the safest bet.
    X Run the validation tool to diagnose the problem
    X Install the fixes linked in my sig
    _ Add more swap space in Windows, and other technical measures you can take
    _ Using RTW Gold? Try to uninstall everything and do not install BI
    _ Got an ATI Radeon X700 graphics card? Apparently some setting called "Support DXT textures format" is creating problems. Try to change this setting for the driver called "Support DXT textures format".
    X Using Nero Burning ROM? Apparently it does something weird to TGA files that causes CTDs when starting EB. At least one forum member got EB to work after uninstalling Nero.
    _ Check that vanilla RTW works. If it doesn't, your problem is not with EB.

    Hey wait, you said it crashed when starting any campaign. This is new. Those post-battle crashes might be bypassed by the trait nerf temporary fix, did you try that?

    Yeah, that's what the trait nerf does, halts all trait acquisition . You'd better put back the backup you took.

    If it's a specific point in your campaign that consistently crashes, please upload the savegame.

    Thanks for uploading . The easiest way to restore the traits file is to open the installer with 7-zip and extract it.

    Well, you won't have any traits from those turns that you've run with the nerfed EDCT, but they'll start gaining traits immediately upon running with the original one, including some initialization like STL/ICE, but some traits that are only gained upon birth/adoption/MOTH won't be right. It shouldn't be enough to require a full restart of the campaign.
