Hi there, I have a ticket in but maybe this would be faster. Reinstalling RT on a new laptop. CMFI/GI went fine. But I am getting this "Assertion Failed" message and a failure to launch RT. I know this has been reported before, but I do not recall the solution. Thanks.

You may want to check for the presence of a sound control applet called ' Nahimic ' that might be causing this issue. Some laptops are coming with this sound control applet (especially MSI ?). The software is NOT necessary to my knowledge (you will still have audio if it is uninstalled), it basically offers some 3D audio capabilities/control.

It worked. I will make sure that BFC has that conflict recorded. Thanks.  BTW, is Nahimic a known bad actor in the software industry? The reason I ask is that you got to the heart of the problem so quickly.

The issue (though not always an 'assertion failed') has been reported before. I did a search of the forums and that was mentioned in relation to 'assertion failed'.

To my knowledge Nahimic isn't known as a 'bad actor', but something about it conflicts with some CM games. I don't know if the conflict is with the copy-protection system or if it is some other technical interference with the way that CM operates.

Do you guys know the difference between "CM Red Thunder 2.00 Full Windows" "CM Red Thunder Upgrade 4 Windows" after purchasing and downloading the 4.0 engine upgrade?

Are they sequentially installed. I was not expecting two options in the d/l zip. I currently show 1.03 Engine 3 which is working thanks to Schrullenhaft. T

The full one lets you install from nothing. The upgrade one lets you install over an existing v1 install.

Both should end up in the same place.
