Hello,

Do you use mods?
This particular error can be an indication of an outdated crack as well as an outdated mod.

Hello,

I was going to tell you that reinstalling would be a bit much. This could be solved in a second.
But lets see if there is any "damage" first. The last time you reinstalled, did you restart your pc after you uninstalled the game?
If you did, that's good.
Please post a screenshot of the folder you copied the crack to. A detailed shot with file types etc. would be most helpful.

It'll be a lot easier to help you out if you open a new topic. It gets really confusing if we have multiple people being helped in one topic. Smile Plus, what works for the other user may not work for you.
