    We need your system specs.

    They can be found by downloading this program:

    copy and paste the first page that it brings up.

    If you are on XP, you might as well try compatibility mode with WIN. 2000. It probably won't work, but worth a try.

    I downloaded Medieval II just fine but when i start the game it doesn't fit on the screen and i don't think size is a issue because my screen is 22 in. and my computer is a windowsXP. Any suggestions to how i can make it fit the screen?

    I am running a 2.4hz quadcore, 4gb ddr2 ram and a 1gb 9800gt gfx card, and this Medieval 2 Total War is giving me a headache. When playing it reverts back to previous autosaves or qucksaves, randomly turning off and on the sound each time it does it... HELP !!!
