Crashing on splash

Postby adamsvette » Sat Jun 02, 2018 12:42 am

I loved this game and have spent hours of my childhood playing it and want nothing more than to just get it working.

It was working on a windows 7 laptop and then I upgraded to windows 10 and it stopped working. Crashed on splash. Tried installing it on a brand new Windows 10 desktop and had the same problem. So I bought it on GOG thinking that it would work better than a cd version and had the same problem. I also tried the EE-Forever method listed here:

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=3066

I've even tried installing EE on a windows xp virtual machine using EE-forever and GOG installer files and I'm getting the same "crash on splash."


I've spent probably 50-100 hours reading forum after forum post on all the different problems people have with this game but I can't find a fix for "crash on splash".

Windows 10 Home
i5-6400
24 gigs of RAM
Nvidia GeForce GT 730

Any help will be much appreciated. Also, I don't have access to the CD atm so please assume I can only use internet links and my GOG version of my installer.

Hi!

if you know how, try to delete any registry key of EE and try to start it then again. Sometimes this helped. Usually, it's something at HKLM\Software\Sierra and/or HKLM\Software\SSSI\Empire Earth and alike. Good luck!
