your computer should be fine for it coco, have you by chance tried to reinstall manually the redistibutables from within
> programfiles x86 \steam\steamapps\common\totalwarshogun2\redist
try reinstalling those manually then reverify your game integrity and try playing the game again.
if this doesn't work can you post a updated dxdiag so we can make sure your driver updates have taken effect
I will try this all but I have one simple question: Does it matter on which drive I have my shogun 2 installed and steam? Because I have this on my E drive. Should I take some action to this drive too?
normally i would have said it would have been better on c:\ but as you have quite a bit of space on both your C:\ and E:\ i don't see it causing that much of a problem.
Hopefully your redist files once they have been reinstalled should work (i hope anyway) if not then pop up a brand new dxdiag and i'll see if i can think of anything else in the meantime.
Tried it but also did not work. I think that unknown part of my computer is damaged (CPU? MOBO? I don't know) and that is the problem. I am wasting my nerves trying to resolve that annoying problem. I think the only way to play Shogun 2 comfortable is buying a new computer. Anyway, I really appreciate all your comments guys and thank you for your attention. You are incredible, I wish you the best
I don't want to sound lazy, but when all else fails if I have an unexplained issue with games (particularly steam games) that appear to prefer to be in the default directory (c), I simply install them there.
Moving files without the install process often will not work and moving them or installing them in a non standard location can make it so file paths are not as expected. Rather than go through the steps of correcting it and maybe missing ONE niggling file path reference, I simply bite the bullet and install it in default locations.
This would probably be a pain in the neck but makes it a good idea to take some things OUT of c and put them elsewhere, and then defrag beforehand, but its what I would do...
What "5700" series card are we talking about here? If its a weak sister, you might have to get a better one. I use a 5770 (which is at the top of that subseries) on one machine and it really struggles, significantly weaker series members might not work well or at all.
I reinstalled steam and shogun on C drive but it has not helped. My computer is cursed but thanks for trying to help me even now when my hope is lost
The virtual memory workaround in that link is for people with 32 bit operating systems. If you have a 64 bit windows, that won't help you. Even if you have a 32 buit OS and you DID do it without error,
1)Your windows must be updated
2)You must have a reasonable amount of ram (probably at least 3gigs)
3)You MAY still need to change your minimum pagefile because windows has a tendency in some systems to set the default too low for some applications and we have seen indications now in three systems where increasing the pagefile minimum and removing the windows auto manage function solves the equation. It is POSSIBLE that a 32 bit system needing the Mad Boris will ALSo need a change of this pagefile size. See this instruction:
