Shogun - problems and patches/new version

Hi Everyone,

I am a big fan of the original Shogun Warlord Edition. It has a simple yet dynamic gameplay, it does not require an internet connection and the campaigns are pretty random to keep you interested. Since I travel a lot, I do not have an internet connection most of the time and I would rather play a lightweight game like the first shogun. I also bought Shogun2, but it is way to graphics intensive for my liking and for my laptop.

I just switched from my old laptop to a new thin and light windows7 ultrabook (samsung 900X3F-K01) with a high resolution display (1920 x 1080), but I seem to have problems with my old and fun game (Shogun).
* On this intel HD Graphics 4000, the resolution gets stretched without respecting the normal ration so it looks awful
* The CPU is used substantially and, whenever I switch between the game and the another application, the CPU goes nuts and suddenly jumps to 80-90% load caused by the game. I guess the game was not optimized for these resolutions or new CPUs.
* Also, the in-game action on the turn based side is really slow so I have to hit the space bar to skip all the action which is really annoying because I can't see what happened in the nearby provinces.

Is there any chance a patch will be released to fix these issues or a new version of the game?

Any support would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

    Come on Devs, please throw all the fans of the series a bone in 2014 and come up with a patch to fix these minor (higher resolution support and modern cpu support) issues and, hopefully a small add-on with 1-3 campaigns since all they involve is a txt file or 3.

    I would love to play the old Shogun with a new minimalist graphics engine so that it runs properly and with minimal resources on these modern ultrabooks and I would even pay for it again if it had 2-3 new campaigns, though I assume nobody cares anymore about the fans once they paid for a newer game. I bough the new versions of Shogun 2, but I still prefer the old one most of the time yet totalwar.com has no support for it anymore :(
