Issues with Total War: NAPOLEON on Intel 12th Gen CPUs

Hi everyone,

We're aware that people are experiences issues with Total War: NAPOLEON and some other legacy titles not working with Intel's newest 12th gen CPUs. We're currently investigating this with a view to roll out patches to address these issues in the coming months. 

For a bit of insight into why these issues have arisen, the new Intel CPUs now have two types of cores; Performance and Efficiency. Previously, the core being used was irrelevant, but now we need to prioritize the performance ones. This is causing the issues we're seeing. More light reading on the matter can be found in this handy post on the Intel site.

Thanks for your patience while we resolve this!

    Hey Total War team,

    Thanks for doing this.

    I am also having a recurring issue with Napoleon Freezing and not crashing mid navel battle and I have tried everything to get it to work from reinstalls to deleting overlays and so on. I have even done a fresh windows 10 install. Nothing has worked thus far. My computer is more than up to running it as i have a water-cooled 3080. I have 10th gen i7.

    Could you possibly look into why its freezing and do a patch fix update? apparently im not the only person with this issue.
