Rome Total War 2 not loading past start screen!
I am having a problem where every time I try playing Rome Total War 2 it just goes onto the loading screen with my mouse becoming a blue circle indicating it is loading but when I go onto my control panel it says the application is not responding. This is odd because when I first installed the game I did manage to get onto the main menu where you could start your campaign etc. I have tried reinstalling it to no avail.

As far as I know I have got the correct system requirements: I have Vista Home Premium, AMD Turion Duel-Core RM-72 2.10 GHz processor, 4GB RAM, 32 bit operating system, NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G chip, my total available graphics memory is 1407 MB, dedicated video memory is 256 MB, shared video memory is 0 MB and shared system memory is 1151 MB.

its not your computer bro. Its steam or the game itself. Im having the exact same problem with a perfectly capable machine. I was able to play on release night as well but now i cant. Join the club bro there are alot of us in the same situation

Same here, except i never even got to play. Wheni hit play, nothing happens. My mouse icon pretends to load for a few seconds, and that's the extent of my gaming experience thus far.

Those specs sound like your right on the very edge of the requirments. I am no sage when it comes to these things though.

I'm having the same problem, mine goes to the loading screen and just freezes, its bizzare because I got to play the game yesterday and was playing it last night before bed now I can't at all...

Yup. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling it. Didn't work. I got to play the game a bit though, and I did enjoy what little I played.

Same here. Can't sombody do something about it. Otherwise this game was just a waste of money. (Tried restarting, didn't help)

I'm having the same issue, I managed to load it up once and it just died straight away. Here's my spec:

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770k CPU @ 3.50GHZ 3.90GHZ
8GB Corsair RAM
64 bit
XFX AMD Radeon HD 7950 DD 3GB GDDR5

Can anyone explain why this is happening?? Also Steam I want my money back its been almost a week and I haven't played it once!
