On both Shogun 2 and Attila, I've been having a very frustrating crash in which my game always stops responding at the main loading screen. There are a variety of things that cause this. McAfee Web Advisor seems to be the biggest cause, but Symantec Endpoint Protection and some other anti-virus software sometimes conflict with the game and prevent it from moving past the splash screen. I didnt have any of these programs on my computer however, so while disabling these worked for some people, it didnt work for me.
The solution that finally fixed the problem for both Shogun 2 and Attila was this:
Open cmd as administrator through the start menu (right click on Command Prompt in start menu and start it as Admin)
Type the following two commands one at a time and press enter
netsh int ip reset reset.txt
netsh winsock reset
press enter and restart your computer.
These commands apparently reset your internet access game settings, and allowed me to finally play both. Hope this helps
