    Re: The Total War Chat Thread

    Because of performance issues, I have to invest in a middle range computer of today (2019) to play games from 2014 (Rome II) and 2015 (Attila). Does someone else have the same problem?

    In that case I can't imagine how players could play Darthmod back then in 2013 when the best GPU cards had around 2 or 3 GB VRAM. It should have been a pain.
