Medieval: Total War won't work on any computer I've tried.
So, I've tried this game on many, many computers, including my main Windows 8.1, A Windows XP, Vista, 98... 2000, too.
In my main Windows 8.1, it shows the splash: "Medieval: Total War", and then it goes, staying in Task Manager, but not showing any game.
In the XP, (all the other computers were Virtual Machines, run in Virtual Box) it installed properly, as it did in all the other computers, but it would always have problems initialising DirectX. It would say things in the error.txt document like:
DirectX call : ERR_INVALIDCAPS
or something like that. And sometimes:
DirectX call : ERR_NOINTERFACE
Any ideas...? This is quite frustrating.
