  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

I recently got Victoria Revolutions off of Steam and when I try to play it, the opening video plays, and then a black screen comes up and the blue circle processing symbol comes up. It ends up giving you a 'program is not responding' message with the options to close the program or wait for the program to respond. I am not sure if running the game as the administrator would help, since the option doesn't come up when I right click on the Victoria icon. I did try reinstalling the game which didn't appear to work.

I have a lenovo yoga with windows 8.1 and intel core i5-3317u 1.7 GHz cpu and 4 GB of RAM if that is relevant.

Any suggestions?
