Shogun 2 won't start, tried everything but offering my grandmother to steam god.
Intel Core 2 Duo E 7200 2,53 GHz
6 GB RAM
ATI Radeon HD 4850
Win 7 64
But I know that this game works on this computer, I've already played it here, and with high details and huge units.
And won it several times.
So far I've tried:
reinstalling the game
verifying (number of times)
deleting ClientRegistry.blob and AppUpdateStats.blob
deleting files in the AppData/Roaming/The Creative Assembly etc (scripts, FX,UI, batle pref)
Disabling the steam community setting.
But, I noticed something interest : After start of the game, the process starts (only for a brief moment) and even appears in Windows Task Manager.
And: in this moment, next to a list of games in my library, next to Total War Shogun 2 flashes SYNCING.
But still, nothing happens.
Can anyone help? I'm so desperate I'll shortly start headbutting the wall, already spent 5 hours googling and trying to make this game work.
Now I've reassured myself that I have latest drivers, graphics and audio both, uninstalled all the vc++, 2005,2008,2010, downloaded them from microsoft and installed them again, forbidden steam cloud synchronization, and...nothing. What might help admins is this: Whenever I start benchmark, no matter on 720 or 1080, it still shows 0 FPS.
Thank you in advance, hope that we'll solve in, another three hours trying to make it work..
