Hello, people! Been a long time since I last posted here.


Anyway, I have a problem followed by a question. So every time I install Rise of the Witch-King onto my CyberPowerPC Desktop (the computer I am posting this from is my MacBook Pro), and try to play it, the game installs absolutely cleanly but then when I try to play it, or any mods for it (yes, even Edain mod) it crashes during start-up. It gives me a different excuse relating to the coding every single time, and when I go in and fix it the game finds another code-related excuse to not run. I tried un-patching, that did nothing. And I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the expansion pack as a whole, that does not work either.


So bottom line, the problem is my copy of RotWK, even though I bought it as part of the Anthology package, insists on never working on my computer.


And now the question: Are there any solutions to this problem that I have not tried? If so, may I get some help resolving this technical difficulty I am having, please?


PS I never get this problem with either of the other two games of the Anthology package. Only RotWK gives me this problem, lately.

Yes, I do live by this advice to the best of my ability.

Possible issues include:

* left over mods that install to the game folder

* incompatibility between the two fan patches

* is there stuff in this folder that might be causing issues?
