Original Rome Total War
Battles (Custom, quick, historical)
What does not
Any cinematics (intro, outros, video events within the campaign map)
In certain cases, mouse sensitivity is incredibly unstable (view extra comments)
Sometimes, switching screen resolution to non-widescreen aspect and back MAY help, but is not guaranteed.
Running the game without changing anything in the graphics settings MAY help.
What was not tested
After changing the graphics settings the cursor acts absolutely crazy within the battle mode. Slight movement will send the mouse flying across the screen in seemingly random directions, making it very hard to move the camera or making formations. Changing the resolution to something lower may help but has to be done each time you enter a new battle.
Campaign map works flawlessly or the issue is not significantly noticeable.
If you run the game for the first time without altering any settings, the cursor will behave normally.
You may try running the game in a windowed mode with the parameter "-ne" (right click the game in your steam library, set launch options) which does seem to help on some occasions.
I have tried various graphics settings and resolutions but the problem seems to occur rather randomly.
