After installing Medieval 2 Total War Gold, when i boot the game up i get an error message saying an unspecified error has occurred and the game will now quit. how can i fix this issue


Hello,

Sorry to hear about your trouble. I own all of the Total War series and they are very great games. I will try to get you up and running so you can enjoy that classic!

I have heard of this error coming up due to corrupt game files. Meaning, you play a campaign and after 50 turns a certain saved game will be corrupted. The solution is to delete the game file, which would cause you to lose that play time but it will fix the error.

If you have not even started playing, then most likely there was an error during installation of the game. Try uninstalling the game, reboot the computer then reinstall the game.

Another possible issue is that your machine does not meet the system requirements to play the game, thus causing it to crash. Check and make sure your system meets the minimum system requirements.

Also, make sure your computer has updated drivers for the graphics card.

Lastly, if none of the above helps you, I would recommend contacting the support team for the game.

Unsupported pixel shader version detected.2.0 what does dis mean im having a graphic card Nvidia FX5200 what to do i want to play the game


Hi,
This message might mean that the game requires a pixel shader more than 2.0 as the graphic card you have, got pixel shader version 2.0. A pixel shader is a type of program often used with games which allows your card to perform per-pixel effects meaning more pixels per second which increases the quality of the game. In this case Devil May Cry 4 uses high graphics and therefore a higher version of shader. You might wanna upgrade your card to Nvidia 8600gt or more to get better performance.
Hope this is helpful
Best regards

Laptops not so great for playing games. But more than that is the fact that Medieval Two requires 128MB Hardware Accelerated video card with Shader 1 support and the latest drivers. The Inspiron 8500 only come with 64MB video ram if running Nvidia or 32MB for ATI.

Pixel Shader is a hardware capability. It must be supported by the graphics card. Sounds like your graphics card will not work with the game you purchased. To answer your question directly, you will need to install a graphics card that supports Pixel Shaders to be able to run games which need it.
The following cards support Shader Model 1.x: - ATI Radeon 85xx Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9000 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9100 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 92xx Series (1.4) - NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti (1.1) - NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti (1.3)

Graphics card


Unfortunately, it sounds like you will need a new graphics card to run that game. Pixel shaders are built into the graphic card hardware and there is no way to download or install them. According to the games system requirements you need a 100% compatible Directx 9.0C card. If you post the make and model of your computer(or motherboard) I could recommend a card for you.
