Thread: Who's still playing?

    I though this was working for me, even though having my computer at 800 x 600 makes the screen look ridiculously big. Unfortunately, the game fell over at 1225.

    Is your desktop resolution at 800x600 too?

    To be honest, I have stopped changing desktop resolution since the game fell over on me. I think I might try and get hold of an old PC to play Medieval on if I can get hold of one cheap enough

    Why don't you try the Steam edition of Medieval?

    That's interesting because I just fixed my steam game by going from the low default resolution 600x? to 1024x768 ! maybe there is a sweet spot?

    Still playing! Vanilla version of 1 currently, thru steam. On my MacBook circa 2008-ish. Loads of fun minus the Pope. I haven't been able to sort out how to mod yet. Regardless it's so fun.

    My Danish kingdom took Scandinavia quickly. Started raiding the Baltic lands to the east. Mother Russia was defeated this week. The Poles and Scots are allies of the Vikings. I'm actually giving the Scotsman a little coin, hoping they can break up England a bit for me. Plus Scotsman are super cool and the English generally suck. Meanwhile the Holy Roman Empire attacked me at Hamburg, starting a mutlifront nightmare. It's only fun if it's a challenge!

    Whoops, I meant Medieval Total War 2. Kingdoms is really fun but the vanilla grand campaign offers more freedom for the Norsemen raiders!

    I play on a CRT and have my campaign map set to 1024x768 and battle map resolution set to 1280x960. It would crash for me at 800x600 as well but once I set the campaign map to my desktop resolution (which is 1024x768), the crashing when mongols arrived finally stopped. I assume you could fix it as well on a flat screen by setting your desktop resolution to 1280x720 as well as campaign map res while keeping battle map resolution at 1920x1080.

    Little tip - play with the non-playable factions in the game (just edit the EARLY.TXT), they're a lot of fun.

    MTW will always have a place in my heart and the strategy aspect on the map still exceeds many of the newer TW games! Without it I wouldn't have become a part of this great community from it's very beginning!

    Total domination can be boring though, hence Glorious Achievements option was always (to me at least) more intriguing, following the actual faction objectives as they were back in the days and re-living it (or making it better depending on the case)!

    Life is like Chess, once you make a move you can't take it back.

    I still play it regularly and introduce it to my students in my school classroom in a unit on Medieval history.
