I've bought Shogun 2 Total War about 2 days ago,and I cant deny that I was overjoyed just by looking at the CD cover

When I was playing as the Date,and I've encountered a Mogami army deep in the enemy's lands,I auto-resolved the battle,and some sort of 'scratchin on the blackboard' sound comes up about 3 times,continuously,and the game crashes and Windows 7 looks for a solution to this issue. This has happened in more than 10 cases,and it didnt always involve battles. Sometimes the game CTD'd after I pressed the End Turn button,and the same sound comes up.

Please help! I just cant open and re-open Shogun 2 a hundred times just to play 20 turns!

I am glad you are enjoying it.

Have you tried starting a new campaign as a different clan? You don't have to play it or anything, just see if it also CTDs, because sometimes something can be wrong with a save file, and with no way of fixing it.

What graphics/video card do you have?

Yeah,I've tried the game with a few different clans aswell,but it keeps Crashing to the desktop.

Driver: ATI Tech. Internal DAC (400 MHz) Approx. Memory. 2296 MB


This may have to do with the core game files,though.

Maybe you could try reinstalling the game, and make sure you have all the updates.

I tried doing a bit of searching for the answer, but the oficial forums have been down lately and you can't get in.

If you have not already you could try lowering your graphic and sound settings, odd solution but it may or may not help. If that does not work you could also try updating, or rolling back, your graphics card drivers to a newer, or older, verison (sometimes certain drivers unfortunately cause issues with the game).

You could also try verifying the integrity of your game cache on Steam, sometimes during the patching process a file (or more) may have been missed or not completely patched. Open you Steam and go to Library, then right click on Total War: Shogun 2 and go to Properties, in the Properties window go to the Local Files tab and select Verify Integrity Of Game Cache, and then let the process run until it is finished. If you are missing files, or they are corrupt, then Steam should go about re-downloading a working copy.

Apparently (After spending countless hours fiddling around with the game options) the problem is from the Music. I disabled the Music in the ound tab of the Options menu,and I managed to actually play 10 continuous turns without any crash,but when I enables music,it crashed again. Problem solved! Thanks to Liam and Scipii!!

Its not from the Music! Its from the effects sound option! I've disabled the effects and re-enabled the music.
