Medieval II Total War 1.3 on a Macbook Pro
Hi, I recently got myself a MBP and decided to try and run Medieval II Total War on it. I went through all the usual stages of running boot camp and parallels 4 and then went ahead and installed the game, which I immediately updated with all the patches.
My problems are twofold:
Firstly, when I've booted straight to Windows (so not using virtualization), the game won't even start; says there's been an unspecified error. I'm running Windows XP Home Edition SP2.
Secondly, I can run the game in Parallels, but I can't save any games; it says that it's unable to write to the drive.
Is this because I'm using a patched 1.3 version perhaps? Any help much appreciated!

Shame there haven't been any replies, but I've done some more testing, and this is what I found:..
1. Medieval II Total War 1.2 works like a dream on a MBP, so if you're using a MBP, don't even bother trying to run Medieval II TW 1.3, as you can't save games.
2. The game wasn't starting up properly because I hadn't installed all the mac drivers from the operating system DVD after going through the boot camp process!
Hope that solves your problem (directed at myself...)
