Thanks Thunderchero

I had read about the "run as Admin" workaround in this thread, and have tried it and it now seems to work.

As for the other problems, I can live with them, now that I can save my campaigns (THAT was the most frustrating thing.)

Cheers,

welcome to forum howster,

Are you using multi installer?

from info you gave it is tough to say what problem might be. If you could provide more info as to when it happens we might be able to help.

so this started on or around 250. it sounds like you might have a corupt saved game. if problem does not happen on new game that would be my guess. and in most cases the game is unsaveable. if you have any older saves from earlier in the game you can try one of those.

It started it before I saved it though. I reopened the game it was still where I left off. Is there any updates or anything for the game? I see posts about an exe fix I dont know!

if you installed from CD/iso there is a patch called "joker's patch" but doubt it would help in this case if it is a corupt saved game.
