I was really annoyed when i found out that no Athlon XP (i have a 2400+) could run Medieval 2 Total War because they lacked SSE2 technology.

Now Creative Assembly have released a 'Gold' demo which apparently works without SSE2

I was wondering if there was a similar update for the full game, because it looks awesome and i'd love to play it.

Thankyou and adui

Sorry to bump this up, but im quite keen on an answer because im just getting even more confused

I've now read that it was only the original demo that required SSE2, not the full game. Could anyone tell what is actually the situation?
Thanks
