Cant Start Game
Was hoping someone here could help me, couldn't find anything using search. Im running Windows 7 Beta, which I've heard can run TQ just fine. I've installed the game and the expansion and updated to 1.30, but when I go to launch it (either through TQ or IT), i get the error "Titan Quest.exe has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program." I found an event log, which ill post below, saying my engine.dll might be screwed up, so i tried to download the one from the Original Game Files thread of this forum and replace it, but it didnt change anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I really want to play

Re: Cant Start Game
That exception code is cause by an access violation error, which in turn can be caused by various things.
How did you update to 1.30? Basically you shouldn't do that since you have the expansion. The latest official version for IT is 1.1. 1.30 is for TQ without the expansion.
Uninstall TQ/IT and install TQ, install IT. Launch the game with IT icon, always. You don't have to apply any patches. When the game launches, it updates the game to the latest version.
Always use the IT icon to launch the game.
If that doesn't solve the issue, then update your graphic card's drivers. Or try some older version. I've had tons of games that didn't like some version of my gfx card's drivers, but worked just fine with newer/older drivers.
Re: Cant Start Game
Well, I'm really desperate to play this, so I formatted my hard drive, reinstalled windows 7, and updated all drivers. Installed TQ and IT right after, same exact error. I dunno what could be wrong. Any other suggestions? I really want to play
