PostSubject: Can't Play TA:K, Windows 10   Sun Jul 10, 2016 1:48 am

Hi all:

I have installed TA:K on my windows 10 machine from my original disc (yep I'm old school). I am running:

OS: Windows 10
RAM: 8 GB
GPU: Nvidia GTX 970
CPU: Intel core I7 4 GHz

Whenever I try to play the game, it fails. At first when I installed it, if I tried to run it told me I didn't have permissions. When I try to run it as an administrator, in Windows XP: SP3 compatibility mode, or both, it doesn't do anything. It's like it starts to process something and then crashes. Nothing happens on the screen.

Does anybody have it working on Windows 10, and if so, what do I need to do, without purchasing another copy?

Thanks!

That is strange. Have you tried downloading the game from alltakdownloads and see if that version works? Deekay might be able to give you more information and a possible fix. And welcome aboard!

I play in Windows 10 with no problems, but for troubleshooting:

Check if your DirectPlay feature is turned on:
http://kingdoms.heavenforum.org/t1406-0xc0000022-error-fix

Use Software MMX Render:
1. Find ChooseRenderer.exe at C:\Cavedog\Kingdoms.
2. Open it.
3. Double click Software MMX render.
4. Try again.

I heard W10 has problems with TA:K disc, so if you nothing works, download the game at alltakdownloads.6te.net and reinstall.

Idk, see if those things fix, always run as admin and try with compatibility turned on and off.

Thanks to both of you! That did the trick! I think that the disc just must be incompatible with Windows 10. I installed it from the source you recommended and it worked great. I am also so excited that there is still an enthusiastic community playing this game! It has been years since I've played it, but I've always really loved it! My GameRanger ID is L0N3STARR. I'll search for you guys as you share your info!

Thanks again!

Change Renderer to Direct3D (C:\Cavedog\Kingdoms\ChooseRenderer.exe)
