    Not sure where to ask this but I made a simple mod (just unit balance adjustments) for Shogun 2 several years ago, and I'm getting back into the game now and would like to make some adjustments......

    Re: PC specs for the game

    Er... those aren't the minimum requirements at all. I'm running the game on a PC that can only barely do 720p/25fps in Warhammer 2, and I'm getting a stable 30fps at 1080p in Three Kingdoms.
