Display glitch in Rome:Total War, Babarian Invasion

By Zak

  1. I just bought a new computer and installed R:TW and BI. However, when I start up the game, two white parallel lines running from top to bottom on the left side of the screen appear. They are present during menus, loading screens, and gameplay. I patched to 1.6 but the lines are still there. Here is my system info below. Is anyone else have this problem? Thank you.

    Try running the game at different resolutions to see if that fixes the problem!!
