New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

  • Medieval Total War - Incompatible Application?

    I've been playing MTW for years now, but after finally managing to get windows update to work, MTW is now stated to be an incompatible application. I've reloaded it, but still no joy.

    Any ideas apart from deleting all those windows updates I've downloaded?

    Can you use an earlier version of windows on the same computer?

      I've tried running the game on an earlier version of windows, but it still states the game is incompatible? I've even totally uninstalled and then reinstalled it?

        MTW is notorious for the criminal protection it had on the original disk, it once forced me to buy a new drive.

        I haven't bought a legal product from them since.

          Its obviously its a windows update that I've installed that has effected the game, since I own the disc.

          It appears I'll have to delete them all, unless another one has a suggestion.

            As I remember it there's something on the disk itself that installs on your hard drive and is very hard to remove.

            Changing configuration on your computer after installing the game caused the spyware to conclude you're now running a pirated copy and it then becomes aggressive.

            I believe there were lawsuits over it even.

              Yeah... changing configuration was what I was thinking of.

                I bought my laptop several years ago and I installed several old games on it and they worked fine. Now several will not play and I suspect Windows upgrades at work. I have not looked at it because I have another computer that works on an older Windows system and they play there fine.

                  The problem was a MS security update KB3086255.

                  By removing this entry, the game runs again.

                    I had that problem some months ago and it was indeed some windows updates, I believe it was to do with preparatory updates for the free Windows 10 upgrade If you have windows 10 o.s, you wont be able to play MTW anyway, even if you try playing it in compatibility mode.

                    I have my game running on my other 9 year old (upgraded over the years) computer which is windows 7 o.s and running with a 5670 AMD Sapphire graphics card 4 gig memory and quad core Intel processor
