WitP:AE wouldn't run after re-installing Windows 10 so I re-installed it & the latest update. Now the game is fine up to clicking the Start Scenario button then it loads a bit and crashes to desktop. What am I missing?
When you say "latest update", do you mean the betas 1126a or 1126b, or the last official update 1124? If you skipped the official update you might not have all the files changes needed to run properly.
Which scenario did you try and run? Some scenarios require downloading of different map sets (stock or extended, no stacking limits or stacking limits) or different database mods like the Reluctant Admiral series.
When you "re-installed, did you run the install from a downloaded .exe file or did you just copy your file directory for the game over to the computer? The proper installer is required to make changes to the Windows Registry that allow the game to run. Just copying an old install won't do it.
Did you re-set your switches in the shortcut properties to make the game run better? If so, please post your entire path + switch string
You don't have enough posts to be able to put up a screenshot yet, but if you use a file sharing site you could make screenshots of your setup and post the link here so the forum can look for issues. At the moment, you have not provided enough info and we are taking shots in the dark.
