Why can't I play Medieval II: Total War? Tags: PC gaming Oblivion Video Games Last response: November 8, 2010 12:46 PM in Video Games Share delta100 November 3, 2010 3:42:14 PM I surpass the minimum requirements, and I have no issue playing games like Oblivion and Fallout 3 (Oblivion having been released around the same time as Medieval II). I'm trying to play the demo of Medieval II: Total War to see if I'm capable of playing the real thing before I go out and buy it. However, I get absolutely nothing but lag. System requirements: Windows 2000/XP/Vista 1.8 GHz Processor 512 MB RAM 11GB uncompressed free Hard disk space 128 MB DirectX 9.0c compatible Graphics card DirectX 9.0c compatible 16-bit Sound card 8x Speed DVD-ROM drive I'm running Windows 7 64-bit, 2.6 GHz quad-core, 6 GB RAM and 256 MB/4.0 ps GPU yet on the lowest settings I still get nothing but lag. I play all my modern games in windowed mode (1024x768), because my desktop isn't powerful enough to handle my monitor's native resolution.

Get the answer bill gates is your daddy November 8, 2010 12:46:22 PM I am confused on why you are saying you have to run games in windowed mode. Your machine specs are not slouchy. The 4200 is good for 1920x1200. I find that I cause more lag trying to run games in a window. Do you run Oblivion and Fallout in windowed mode? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
