Hi Iskrax, sorry to see you're having problems. As there is no dxdiag, I will have to post a variety of steps:


1) Go to C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly\Shogun2 (You may have to enable “Show Hidden Files” in Windows Explorer in order to see the folder)
2) Delete the following folders: (if some folders are not present, don’t worry)
- Army_setups
- Battle_preferences
- Fx_cache
- Ui_Cache
- Scripts
3) Right click on the Steam icon in Windows toolbar and exit Steam
4) Go to C:\Program Files\Steam and delete the following folders:
- AppUpdateStats.blob
- ClientRegistry.blob
5) Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\total war shogun 2 and delete the shogun2.dll
6) Start Steam as an administrator (it will update) and validate Shogun 2 and validate Shogun 2 via Right Click on Total War: SHOGUN 2 > Properties > Local Files tab > Verify Integrity of Game Cache.



If you have 32-bit Windows:
1) A crash in Shogun 2 or FotS in conjunction with 32-bit Windows is due to the memory limitations of 32-bit Windows in conjunction with the increase in memory requirements for Fall of the Samurai.
2) To fix this, apply the fix known as “Mad Boris”. Detailed information on the problem and the workaround can be found here : http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=238484

Windows Vista and 7
3) Run the Command Prompt as an administrator
4) Type the following: bcdedit /set increaseuserva 2500
5) Hit enter, and you should get a message confirming the change.
6) Reboot the PC and start Shogun 2

Windows XP
7) Find your Boot.ini, usually located on the C drive (may have to check Show Hidden Files and Folders)
8) Right click on the Boot.ini and choose properties. Uncheck “read only”
9) Open the boot.ini by double clicking it.
10) Under the section called [operating systems] find the line that says "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP...". Yours may look a bit different. We are going to make a duplicate, so that if you make a mistake you will not harm yourself from booting into your computer. Drag you're mouse across the entire line, right click and choose copy. Then right below the line you just copied right click your mouse and choose paste. You should now have two lines one after another that are exact duplicates.
11) Change the bottom line that you just copied with the following addition on the end. Add a space at the end of the line and then this without the quotes "/3GB /USERVA=2500"
12) In that lower boot entry you just made, find the name of the operating system in quotes and change it to something like "Windows XP 3GB", so you can differentiate at boot up.
13) Close and save the boot.ini.
14) Right click on the boot.ini, hit properties, check read only.
15) Reboot the PC and start Shogun 2


If that does not work, please create a new thread in our official Shogun 2 forums, which can be found here:

Hi Iskrax,

I came back from a three-week long holiday two weeks ago, and unfortunately your post was within my holiday period, which is why I was unable to respond to your post. I have responded now, and I do think you should try the "Mad Boris" fix for your 32-bit Windows XP.
