Help
Everytime I play the game it shut down (after 10 to 20 mintues of playing). If I uninstalled my game and the DLC and reinstalled will it work? I have DxDiag file ready if you want to see it.

Let's see the dxdiag then. But that symptom is commonly caused by overheating, which the game can trigger as it uses the video processor quite heavily. So let's see your CK2 settings.txt file too please, and check your CPU and GPU temperatures before you start the game, and after 10 or so minutes. You can Google for and install SPEEDFAN if you don't have a way of reading temps.

Just adding: uninstalling and reinstalling should do no harm at all!

Even deleting the game-folder should be ok - as the savegames are not stored there. (please correct me if I am wrong I use Linux here)

I use win 7 64 bit. What about my DLC, would I use get them if I've paid for them.

If you have a Steam Key for them you can delete the game itself as often as you want - or better - need!

You are also free to install or reinstall your games/DLCs on (several) different computers - and even in this case under 3 supported operating systems at the same time.

If you have registered a Steam Key for your DLC then it is just the same for DLC as for the native game itself. It also updates automatically.

I don't think I've done that.

Btw. it's just a guess. But you really have a geared up computer with your 8 CPUs!
I would say "congrats" - but it may be in this case that the cooling is not able to handle all the CPUs! Maybe take a closer look on that. It is a hardware problem - not a software problem if that is the case. CK2 should run with only one CPU just fine I think.

The CPU should be sharing the work load, this allow the temperature of each CPU to stay at a low level. I have not change the graphic settings of the game or I have had any issue with other games.

"You have registered a Steam Key for your DLC" Does that mean my game automacity register my DLC. Should I uninstall my DLC first or just the main game?

I think only you can find out how to handle an overheating on your PC. You can probably fix it in your driver settings or have to enhance your hardware. I guess that CK2 just uses what it gets - and if that is 8x CPU than it uses them.
Indeed CK2 works a lot in the background. The relationship of every single character towards each other needs a lot to be done for the CPU. But - as mentioned before - one CPU is enough to handle it. It looks like the overheating could be the problem. (Just guessed!)

Your right to use / install the offered applications by Steam is linked to your Steam Account.

As long as you have access to your Steam Account you can use/install things as often as you wish/need. If you have a key for DLC the DLC is automatically activated and will be downloaded each time you install things. (Even if you buy a soundtrack for another game. - They are mostly installed in your game folder where you probably don't want them to stay. But if you move this DLC away it will automatically be re-downloaded the next time.)

Good luck!

Sorry, I did not answer that properly!
If you have bought CK2 and the DLC on Steam all should be fine.
Also if you bought it elsewhere - and got a Steam Key.

Additional there are other ways to get this game. But of course only Steam applications will be installed by Steam.

I brought the CD version of the game but I did wrote down the key just in case.

I see! Why are you using the Steam forum? - I guess you also got a Steam Key then? (If so - all should be fine!)
Ancient Yokai May 9, 2013 @ 5:44am 
To ask for help. I will also look into the cooling system of my computer and see if I can do anything with it.

Oh dear! - I don't know about non-Steam installations!

If you need non-Steam-help please go here http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?551-Crusader-Kings-II

You can also try to get hints for your shutdown-problem there! - And hopefully much better answers! Good luck!
