    Default Shogun Total War 1 - take a look at these graphics?

    Hi there. Just joined this excellent site! I didn't realise there was such an avid fanbase of total war fans! (I also play RTW).

    Anywho, I wonder if someone wouldn't mind taking a gander at this screen shot. I recently bought Shogun - total war and can't think what else to try to get these graphics looking better.

    I had the game years ago and I remember them looking better than this and that was on a well outdated computer!

    Is this as good as the graphics get on Shogun Total War 1? Is my memory coloured by time? I'm sure I remember seeing archers looking amazing etc.


    Cheers!

    Probably because you must have played games with higher graphics.
    Therefore, the old games that looked good to you before are like this now.

    Yeah, that's about eleven years old. No, you won't get better graphics than that, unfortunately. That was the best they had, then.

    At best, you might find a higher-res Texture pack, but that won't improve the graphics that much.

    Also you probably played on a smaller screen which makes shogun 1 look much better.

    Buy Shogun 2, instantly better graphics.
    "Muscovy", as its rulers have previously called it, is a sleeping giant, with age-old traditions and ways of doing things. Here, the feudal way of life has become so entrenched that the serfs are as tied to the land as cattle, and with almost as few rights. It is a vast, deeply conservative and religious country: Mother Russia and the Orthodox Church are the two pillars of national belief. The Tsar may be the father of his people, but by tradition and practice he is a stern parent. Ivan the Terrible was well named, and he has not been the only ruler with an iron will. Russia is the "Third Rome". The last bastion of Orthodox Christianity.

    Thanks for the welcome

    NOOOOOOOOOO is it true? This was really as good as it got? Oh man .

    I actually have Shogun 2, but in this case, my computer is to wack to handle it. It's very slow and get this - I have to run it on ultra low graphics for it to even be less than reasonable

    In fact, I bet some of you guys are experts; if anyone happens to be knowledgeable about graphics card, I'd love any suggestions for an affordable option that will make Shogun 2 my new life

    This is what isn't cutting it at the moment:

    I have a friend who had a computer game so old, his state of the art graphics card had trouble reading it.
