Strategy & Tactics: Dark Ages is a turn-based strategy game set in the Middle Ages. That time period was haunted by violence and fierce battles and the game perfectly reflects that. You can send your Vikings to wage war against musketeers, or make the Mongol cavalry attack crusaders. The deadliest armies in history are at your order and they’re ready to clash in bloody wars.

The first obstacle to overcome are the annoying technical issues affecting the game. Perhaps one of the most annoying issues are the frequent Strategy & Tactics: Dark Ages crashes, as gamers report.

Strategy & Tactics: Dark Ages other bugs

Players report that the startup crash is not the only bug affecting Strategy & Tactics: Dark Ages. Other bugs include install problems due to Disk Write error messages.

I have just downloaded the game and I cannot complete the install due to a Disk Write Error message.
I have checked the hard drive and there is 4.7 TB free, so I don’t think storage capacity is a problem.

Several players also complain about mouse button issues.

I have to left click and hold for the cersor to move on-screen is there a way to fix this problem?
