Hi everyone!

I'd like to get AoW but I'm in trouble with AoW demo v1.31.
My PC data:

MS Windows XP Home 32-bit SP3
AMD Athlon XP
256 MB DDR @ 133 MHz
V173 (1024x768@75Hz)
32 MBNVIDIA GeForce2 MX 100/200
Realtek AC'97 Audio for VIA (R) Audio Controller

DOSBox-0.74

Playing First Conflict scenario when I kill a hostile leader during a tactical mode battle I get this message:

Exception occured during TTerminateCombatTE

If I choose the automatic battle mode I get this:

Exception occured during TArmyCombatMoveTE

In any case the two armies just disappear from the map, I can't load any of my saves and... have to pass through the tutorial to return to Windows. When no leaders are involved there are no problems whichever the battle mode.

Playing Mountain Clash scenario I have the same problem.
Once, during a tactical mode battle, when I tried to load a save I got also this message:

Exception during AoWHSMAP.NewFrame

I couldn't get rid of the message and couldn't return to Windows properly.

I was told to try different compatibility options in AoW Properties but the results are identical. I also reinstalled the Demo but it was useless.

Secondly, I noticed that in the site a "AoW Demo v1.36 patch" is mentioned but I couldn't find it through the provided link. Did I misundertand anything?

Thank you for your kind attention.
