I bought the EA Games Strategy Collection, it was on sale for 10.99


Anyways, it comes with C&C Generals, C&C Zero Hour, Black and White2, Black and White 2 Battle of the Gods and LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth.

Either of the C&C games, and LOTR will not launch. I start the game, the splash screen comes up, and then nothing. I set the compatibility to different levels and nothing. Google isn't sowing anything either.

Anyone know?

The same exact thing happened to me with this game as soon as I moved to C2D.

You'll need to go back to stock from your overclocked settings. It had something to do with memory timings and my northbridge voltage I think.

I can in no way shape or form describe why going back to stock fixed the issue when my system was stable from the get go, but give it a try. It worked for me.

It's based on the same game engine. It's called WW3D or W3D (Not shockwave) and it is a touchy engine since it was just a beefed up RTS interfaced C&C Renegade (About 7 years old now) so your best bet is to email EA games and see if they fixed their BFME and C&C tech support. It might also be the un patched version, take a look and see if there is a patch for it or run the auto updater
