Got an annoying problem that I think might be Vista related.

I installed the game fine,but when I start playing, the game freezes during the intro videos. No matter at what intro video,the paradox intro playes for a few seconds and then the game freezes. If I skip the paradox intro,it will freeze during akella intro.

But if I skip all intros and got straight to the menu,everything works fine for a few seconds and then it crashes again.

I set the compability mode of the .exe to Win98/ME(worked with AIM2) and it works...somewhat. videos play fine but with a lagg and the menu laggs too,but when I try to start a new game it crashes.
And yes I tried XP compability mode,no help there.

I have fiddled with codecs,but no affect. Like I said,I think it's vista related issue,since I experienced some playback issues with undercover:eek:peration wintersun(not this serious though).

Just wondering if there is a some solution to this or do I need to install XP again. :wacko:

We have been informed about an issue with the movies/cut scenes on Windows Vista set up on multi core processors. We expect an update to be available by the end of this week, the time when the game will be available in the box as well. The patch will be available through both Gamersgate and Paradox.

I am running Windows XP SP2. I purchased the Tarr Chronicles
from GamersGate last night.

When I completed the Gamersgate download 1081 MB biggy,
and installed the Tarr Application and the patch, I got a message
no disk in DVD drive. At this point I removed the patch reinstalled the
application and got through the Activation sequence OK.

Tarr Chronicles executed through the developer promos
and Intro movies although the movies are in black and white
and gray (is this normal).

When it got to what appears to be the Menu Screen
the application hangs.

well i've had pretty much every single problem you guys said..
and what did i find out..
that the codecs i already had in the pc were messing everything up..
uninstall some of them and you may be able to play the game..
here i had to trash both haali media splitter and de k-lite codec pack..
now the games runs proprerly...if that dont do the trick for you guys, i dont know what can it be..
