For this you really need to register your game on the Paradox site and access their support and forums.

i asked here because i can never find any real help on paradox forums but thats just me. its more then just paradox games too like it dosent matter what game i try it always comes up with the same message. i just recetly purchased a new desktop which iam trying to install these games on and it should have more than enough power to play any game ive tried.

If it is happening that widely the games are not detecting / linking with your graphics card and or drivers. The obvious questions are - the currency of the drivers and your operating system amd both's interaction (includes the games) with your operating system. Your not running Windows 8 are you? Because almost no games support Windows 8. With this sort of issue some specifics of sofware and setups and talking directly with technically focused persons is a must. There are just too many possiblities and I would be guessing blind. Sorry

i really am no expert as you probablly guessed but ill type everything from that resource dvd i got thats under my system because i dont remember what my specs are and it lists more than one video driver and confuses the ♥♥♥♥ outta me. i can tell you my audio driver chipset drivers my network drivers removeable storage driver serial ata application serial ata driver and a whole bunch comes under video driver. would any of this even be useful? i can post it if you want/need. iam currently not running windows 8 its windows 7 home premium 64 bit

Unfortunately I suspect (stronly) that the multiple listed installed (?) video drivers is a large part of the problem. That just about reaches my limits sorry. My experience with Windows 7 is very small. Many of my older favourite games won't support it so I have largely remained with XP until I can afford a hardware upgrade to operate multiple operating systems - which is so out of my depth that I am having a serious techie friend do it for me (it's both his job and his passion - much to my relief)

well if i click on one of these drivers it says extract files but idk wtf is going on. think itd be best to talk to who sold me the computer (i bought an alienware from dell) because i cant find anything in the paradox forums and it wont even let me post in there. and thanks for trying to help me anyway

could it be because it dosent know what kind of driver is installed? because i had a message that said base system device installed version: unkown
BrennanTate Jan 7, 2014 @ 10:37pm 
I think you are likely to be onto a key cause. That message would fit with the very nicely with the games / system being unable to identify the driver or possibly the hardware

so should i put in that resource dvd and extract all the files on all the drivers in there (even the non video ones)? and put them on my desktop or something?
BrennanTate Jan 8, 2014 @ 9:58pm 
I don't see any point on putting them on your desk top but either extracting all those drivers or checking the webb for specific drivers & / or updates for your specific hardware - video card and sound cards

i finally got it going and its working pretty damn good. i extracted all those files from that disk shut down the computer and restarted it and BOOM! hahaha
