Shogun 2 Crashes at loading screen
i have this problem that the game crashes at loading screen, however my system specs should be able to run it.... The mouse also shows, and about 3 seconds after the game shuts down.

Did you verify game files on Steam properties?

Done that too mate :(

I had that. Then I updated my audio and video drivers. Then I kept getting it again and I set the textures lower. BTW, it has problems with dual cards. Set your details lower. Failing that as well. Go to the official forums and post your DXDIAG log.

No problem mate, got it fixed ! :)
Had to use "regedit" and delete all Incredibar, then i could enter the game for my first time!

I have this problem. After verifying the game cache it worked once and now doesn't work anymore, it just freezes after I choose whether to run on DX9 or DX10. What do I do guys? I like this game and really want to play it! Any tips would be excellent!

Open search and type "run" and open it.
Type in Regedit
ctrl + f and search for Incredibar
Delete folders, which has anything with Incredibar to doo.
Hope this worked, did for me!

Thanks for the info but it didn't work sadly, all I had come up was '(default) Reg SZ' which I don't think has anything to do with incredibar. I am out of options now, thanks to steam and sega I have wasted money on a game I can't ♥♥♥♥ing play. Cheers for the help though mate. Time to demand some money back :)

update drivers?
The J_Man Jan 12, 2013 @ 11:18am 
As far as I know everything is updated. If it is the case, how would I find out how to update my drivers? I know how to look them up on dxdiag. But thats it.

I just fixed this on my computer a couple of minutes ago, what I did was uninstall all of my Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable files , then I restarted my PC and went STEAM > STEAMAPPS > COMMON > TOTAL WAR SHOGUN 2 > REDIST and then ran the VCREDIST_x86.exe and installed that, then when I booted up Shogun 2 it worked perfectly, I hope this helps.

Sadly it didn't work mate, thank you for the help though. I just don't know what to do to get this game to work, it's killing me. I just want to be a Shogun!

This worked for me been so long since i played the game gave up for a couple of years. Now feeling nostalgic i figured give it one more shot. I didnt need to uninstall the Visual C++ files i just followed the path to VCREDIST_x86.exe and intalled that file the booted up the game and it works!! thanks for the tips and taking the time to troubleshoot this boot problem

If you attempt to launch Shogun 2 from Steam and nothing happens:
1) Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\total war shogun 2\redist
2) Run the following installers:
- Flashsecurity.exe
- Flashsecurity1.exe
- Install_flash_player_11_plugin_32bit.exe
- Vcredist_x86.exe
- Vcredist_x86_90.exe
- Vcredist_x86-sp1.exe
3) Access the DirectX folder
4) Run DXSETUP.exe
5) Restart your PC and run Shogun 2


info take from read first topic...try this

No problem.

All, I saw a tip on another forum that got me going. It basically suggested that this program is very touchy when it comes to any sort of virus that can impact the start up executable timing. I found an article which I've included below that details a number of free programs that can be used to remove virus from your computer. I followed these steps exactly and it got the program working. Direct X 11 still does not work, but instead of crashing it returned me to the initial Direct X 11 / 9 selection screen, so that may really be some sort of issue with my graphics settings. Next I selected the DX 9 option, got the flash screen as before, only this time "SUCCESS" the program loaded correctly. Please note before trying these steps, I tested both DX 9 and DX 11 options and both crashed as I explained in my entry above. As I explained in my earlier post, I've been trying every suggestion that I've seen in the forums and none of them worked for me. It is also worth noting that I have been running this game for years without any problems and have purchased 100% of the added content so my version of the game is fully loaded. Some of the things I tried which made no difference were:
1. verified game cache files.
2. Removed and reinstalled from scratch.
3. Removed a second time, created a clean steam directory on one of my other 1tb seagate disks and installed so this was the only game loaded on that disk.
4. Manually ran all of the installers from the steam install director for the game, in both the default steam direction and the one I created in step 3.
4. Deleted all of my subscribed mods and the mod manager.
5. Tried running Steam in off-line mode.
6. Disabled the SLI mode on my graphics screens, forced the minimum graphics settings in the Nvidia control panel, and disabled 2 of my systems 3 screens.
None of this stuff made a difference but the tip that this program was susceptible to some of the cookie tracking type ad virus got me thinking there might be something to that tip. My system has been bothered with pop up ad windows in both ME, Chrome and Firefox. They had been driving me crazy but my Nortan Anti Virus product was not doing the trick. Even tried a full system scan on the latest virus files from Nortan prior to following the steps included in the link below and confirmed after doing this and rebooting I still had the problem with the hang at the flash screen.
The link below is a is a cook book solution and has you down load a number of free scanners. Interestingly each of them found a few other things that the others missed so it is worth while doing all steps and only takes about an hour start to finish. I down loaded every program using the links provided in the article and all were legit and you will not plagued with all of the phishing crap that so many of these sites to pull.
