Yep, 4.1bb is the latest version of TA:K, you can download it here: All TA:K Downloads - Patches

I didn't understand much your problem opening the folders... But if updating your TA:K doesn't work, ask again.

Could you send me a printscreen? Then I can understand better. Can't you open and install 4.1bb version of the game? What's the extension of the files you can't open (.exe?)?

Right click on the properties of the file and see if its an exe? if not, possibly try and rename the file extension to an .exe.

Vhaerun, it's clearly an .exe file, it says "Application" as file type. The problem is that you can't make those Patches to work, look:



"The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher."

For some reason these patches won't work on our windows, I think the only thing you can do now is download 4.1bb version and installing it: Click Here to Download 4.1bb Patch

Yes, it works, at least here:



Or, if you insist on wanting 3.0bb version of the game, you can try downloading the CD files of Total Annihilation: Kingdoms: The Iron Plague here: Click Here to Download Total Annihilation: Kingdoms: The Iron Plague CD Files (Yes, you need a CD image emulator, such as Daemon Tools or Virtual Clone Driver, you know?)

I don't have any way to give you the 2.0bd version of the game =(.

That's what I can do for you for now. =P

Answering your topic, it's not only an Windows 8 problem, Windows 7 has problems with it too. lol.
By the way, I'm really interested in your CD content, just to see if it has something special, it's hard to find some things about TA:K on Internet nowadays... I'd be glad if you can help me. =)

Weird... What's written in its name? Unconfirmed? Could you show me its extension or something (properties maybe)?
Relax, being 32 bits or 64 doesn't matter for us now.

Those patch versions never worked for me even in XP a long time ago when I tried opening them. Simply install v4.1 on top.

Try downloading the 4.1 file on another pc with 7 or vista, then transfer the file unto 8.1.

You probably need WinRAR or 7 zip to extract the files.

as far as i read on the situation with crdownload is that its google chrome only that does this and its actually downloaded 99% but my nortan 360 or chrome has found malicious or unstable files or software in the download so it does not complete the download and u are left with that crdownload which u cant do anything with which isnt very useful for anyone who uses chrome wat i did was open internet explorer and as soon as i downloaded 4.1bb i seen it said exe at the end and knew it would work instantly just proceed to download and replace existing tak folder when prompted and it should run without compatibility mode as far as ive seen Smile Smile

Aha, I knew it was something about the file not being an .exe file, even though it did say it was an app file.

some minor problems can be solved by changing in "ChooseRenderer.exe"
(Cavedog\Kingdoms\ChooseRenderer.exe)

From "directd3d->into software renderer"
or vice versa "software->direct3d"

but most of crashes are very individual problems
