Alright, every time I've installed this game there have always been issues, but with googling I'd be able to find the fix
without having to make my own post.
It's the same problem people have been posting about for years...Crash after character creation.
Here's the error details, but I'm only posting it to prove that it's the same old story, and we can skip past all the "did
you do this or that" stuff:

Here's my chipset details:
Mobile Intel® GM45 Express Chipset
Mobile Intel® 82GM45 Graphics and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH)
Intel(R) 82801IMB Intel(R) I/O Controller Hub (ICH9M-B) SATA Controller found in AHCI mode
This chipset supports integrated graphics.
Now then, here's where I'm looking for help:
I strongly believe the problem lies behind being unable to change the flipping policy to "blit", seeing that this option no
longer exists in this new 3d menu. This was always the fix that did the trick before...and yes, on this very machine. No
idea why this new graphics control panel no longer gives me that option (as well as omits other options)
If I can just find out how to get back the window that the intel site itself is saying I'd get if I follow its instructions
(or better yet just find another way to change the flipping policy) I'm 99 percent sure I'd be all set.
Here's what the intel site is showing me I'd see (and indeed what I'm used to seeing)
...and here's what I'm seeing
It's always something with this game...it's like even as there are no new updates to it, it just has this knack at evolving problems anyway.
Now please note again that this machine is CAPABLE of running this game. It has before.
Anyone willing to spare a friendly stranger patches of baldness?
Edit: Just so any would be helper is aware, I followed the sticky to the letter...except this part.
