Hmmmm, i have a slight problem with RON i have recently purchased the game and have as of yet not been able to get the damn thing to play, it appears to have installed onto the computer fine without any problems but when it comes to playing the game all i can do is watch the Intro and then it shuts down, a small window with gathering exception data appears and thats all, nothing happens after that.
Help! its really pissing me of now!

Re-install. Then make sure there's no new patch.

Thanks, but i hae already done this, quite a few times. I have also tried clean-booting the computer and running it that way, but no luck with that approach.

What are your computer's specs: cpu, motherboard, video card, operating system. Have you updated drivers for motherboard, video card, and checked for windows updates?

I have this game, but haven't played it yet.

256mb ram
Have a 15gb hard drive with 11 gb free,

I've done an extensive search on google and come up dry. There seems to be no current solution and you'll just have to wait until they release another patch.

Thats Microsoft for you.

Thanks alot this is really helpful, after much reading of that thread it turns out that alot of people have this problem but at different times of the game, and the games developer is supposed to be releasing a patch soon to correct this problem.

Thank you.

Andy, I don't think 'Rise of Nations' can run on Windows NT. Check to see if Windows NT is listed in system requirements for this game.

Damn, i think your mite be correct, NT isnt listed as a system requirement, but here are the ones that are, XP/2000/ME/98, 98 is listed so i should have thoght it would work on NT, but i doubt it. I cant beleive i overlooked something as simple as that, will have to buy XP to play the damn game, gonna be the most expensive game ever.

I'd be really surprised if the game will work on 98 and not NT. Wait for the patch. but... you should buy XP anyway, it's alot better than NT.

Based on the specs you mentioned. My suspicion is the video card. On the box, it said the minimum is a 16mb 3d card.

And I found this link for your graphics card:
