Wow - suddenly my Athlon XP 2800 hits a brick wall. And on my favorite game series ever. Darn the bad luck. Time to move up that upgrade I guess.

Not into the campaign side of the game or this demo. The graphics are greatly enhanced and I like it. There are some bugs in the demo such as quick key formations failing.

All in All, very cool! The combat is great and this will be a fun skirmish game across the main map.

I was disappointed with Rome but this game looks like it will make up for that.

(Edit) It's too bad the demo won't save my custom key settings. The default key setup is pure shit and makes it frustrating to play.

Yeah...but do you have a nitro injector in your rig?

I was thinking more of a little mini supercharger on the processor.

I only get to upgrade once every two years or so thus the really high end parts when I do.

My Core 2 Duo based box with SLI has no problems running this game at max. Like you, I also run 7900GTXs. I've got 4 gigs of RAM however and 4 300GB SATA drives setup in a RAID 0 config.

The Core 2 Duo could also be a factor. The extra processing power generally helps a lot in RRS games.

Cabezone,

It has to be your box. My Core 2 Duo based box with SLI has no problems running this game at max. Like you, I also run 7900GTXs. I've got 4 gigs of RAM however and 4 300GB SATA drives setup in a RAID 0 config.

Your processor has to support SSE2 to play this demo.

Seriously? That's why it's not starting? Curse my Athlon XP. Playing this on my laptop will be decidedly less pleasant.

I've been pretty impressed with FileFront as well. Using them for pretty much all of my downloading of late.

Just go to PIXEL RAGE out of all the links. No membership, you click the link and it starts downloading.

These download spots are really pissing me off. Have to wait for download, have to register, have to pay. Fuck all that noise.

Back to the game. I am DONE! My life is over with when this hits the shelves. Friggin Rome sucked months out of my life and now this? Ugh.

Hmm this thing chugs along like a fat man uphill on my system. X24400, 2GB, SLI7900GTX.

Maybe it doesn't like SLI, I'll try disabling it when I get home.

The only thing that bothered me about this demo was that the archers don't seem to be nearly as accurate as they were in R:TW.

Archers in Medieval were more of a "fire for effect" tool

Wow, this demo is so cool! It plays smoother than I ever expected. This is going to be a highly streamlined game. I wish Battlefield series (BF2 & BF 2142) would get this kind of streamlined support.

And to think EA could've fucked this up, but they dropped Total War and gave it away to Activision.

Total War games always seem to come out of the blue. They don't hype it to all hell, they just quietly release the demo and full version, and let people know it's there.

I really wasn't expecting to buy this. At first it just looked like RTW with different models. But the more I read up on it, the more excited I get about it. I had no clue the demo was coming out to day but it's going to be nice to see if how much has changed since RTW.
