So I have seen nearly endless forum posts about various issues with Shogun Total War and different versions of windows but none with my particular problem.
So I have Shogun Total War Gold Edition from Sold out Software specifically. I can install it no problem, but the launcher won't start without being prompted, and then the game won't start at all no matter how I try to launch it. I have tried every compatibility mode setting there is, tried dozens of patches to no avail. I don't even get any error messages, the game doesn't launch at all.
my pc is pretty crappy really, but it ran the game perfectly previously but just won't work now for whatever reason. I would appreciate any help you can give me.
