    Icon4 Rome 2: bugs and crashes.

    Me and my friend can't wait for Rome 2, but there's one thing in Shogun 2/fots that pretty much ruins an entire aspect of the game for us: crashing and bugs.

    It is almost impossible to have a nice, long couple of hours of multiplayer campaign without the game crashing, battle not loading properly and black screens. I'm surprised the majority of these issues are still in the game, I mean, CA play the game...

    It seems to get progressively worse the longer you go, and we've pretty much stopped playing because of this. You may be thinking "This has nothing to do with Rome". Well, it does. If there is constant crashing/bugs in the multiplayer campaign in Rome after a year of it's release, I would not be expecting my game to crash every 5 turns as it should have been fixed. I have no idea what i'd do if this was the case, but I can tell you i'd be disappointed.

    Do we know if CA will do extra bug/crash testing for their updates for Rome 2, or will they move onto the next game, leaving the issues untouched like they did with Shogun 2?

    Actually I think Shogun 2 is very stable, and was more stable than other previous CA games in my opinion

    I don't recall Shogun 2, or any of its expansions, ever crashing on me. This is with hundreds of hours in.

    Depends on the processor. AMD tends to crash a lot in my experiance.

    I have never had problems playing Shogun for many hours. If it's a problem of the MP, I don't care much as the TW games are mainly SP and that's what is important to be stable. The MP can be adjusted after the release with a patch or so.

    Fix your drivers. If that doesn't work, re-install OS. If even that doesn't work you may have a faulty GPU.

    My comments about crashing are related to Shogun 2, and my question is if this will be present in Rome 2 or not. I mean, it is inevitable that it WILL crash, but Shogun 2 crashes alot on the MP campaign for me and my friend.

    It is painful to read the silly responses.

    The OP talks about multilayer campaign bugs of the Shogun 2, which are unfortunately still present after so much time has passed after the release.


    The rhetorical question op asks, is if the new game, Rome II, will follow the same lame practice of having such obvious bugs on release, and not fixing them for year to come.

    Duh.

    Not having had any problems to speak of - SP or MP - all I can do is smile.

    Shogun 2 very stable for me, I have hundreds of hours into it and I don't think I have ever had it crash... well at least not have it crash without me causing it, in the way of testing new mods I have made.

    Shogun 2 has never crashed for me. Only with mods, I prefer it without mods anyway.

    I do not think the OP is talking about a standard single player game of Shogun.

    Now he is having problems with multi player and crashes.

    However one assumes that any bugs that have been present in the Warscape engine up to this date have been fixed.
    Any bugs that surface with the New ROME II should only be new ones and not repeat bugs from previous versions.

    Of course one hopes the game is bug free but I am a realist.

    Played about 100 Hours in Online Coop-Campaign, we just had maybe one-two crashed in battles with 12.000+ troops, seems like Hardware/software related.

    It probably crashes all the time, it is pre-alpha.

    Well, here is ny experience with the COOP campaigns in the previous total war games. Empire was a bug fest, while it got several patches that greatly increased stability in SP, the COOP campaign remained pretty much unplayable. Then came napoleon which did have improvements but still tended to crash a little too often. Shogun II however was for me nearly free of crashes in the COOP campaign and it has been very playable. So if CA continues their improvement rate in Rome 2 as earlier, I am confident that it will be the best COOP TW game ever. While I do not think that it will be completely bug free (anything can be broken if you try hard enough) it should play nicely.

    Yep, I played a couple of MP campiagns too in S2, it crashed only once, maybe twice, but they were worth it, they were by far the funniest and most interesting campaigns I had played.
