I've been wondering what does this PS 2.0 do for me? except giving problems in many new games, why can't it be simulated by calling PS 1.0 or a NULL function?

PS 2.0 (Pixel Shader Model 2), to simplify, is used to draw the pixels on your screen. Different versions allow you more or less code for doing so and different nice features to use.

The reason for not using PS 1.0
1. Very very limiting, so development takes longer, there are also other limitations like how many textures you can use.
2. Any computer with card that doesnt support 2.0 will most probably be too slow to run the game at playable speeds even if we emulated stuff using 1.0 anyway (which would require double the work and be much slower).

EDIT: actually all the shader code is there i the gfx folder, so anyone with enough time on their hands could probably pull off a PS 1.0 port, if you managed to cut down the texture usage.

See wikipedia for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pixel_shader

Ok, can someone give me an easily accessible place to get 9.0c from? I can't get it from Johan's link, same as spl. From filefront their download is all weird, filled with .rar files. Wasn't able to start the demo with those, extracted or not. I hate that these things are so complicated. Are game developers really that selfish?

Why couldn't you get it from that link? Do you not have a legal version of Windows?

In any case, I've put a second link in there, try that.

It's all good, dude. Hermesthetechmaster helped me out and it's working now. Sorry for the rant...I just get easily frustrated when things don't work with the computer. :)

Thanks though!

I have downloaded the demo, and it runs fine but maybe a little slow in loading. When I click on a military unit on the map the game crashes to a black screen and then I get a message the the program must shut down. I will not buy the game unless it will work on this computer. And its sad because Ive really liked most parts of the game I was able to do.

Downloading Direct X

I'm having the same probably downloading. Direct X it will not go through. Widows has blocked the download because it cant verify the publisher. Does anyone know another way to bypass this? Please Help!!!

well I do now the direct X is not the problem because i just installed the latest version of 9 c and it still crashes when i select a military unit.
"Rome.exe has encountered a problem and must shut down."

Can yall create a game that is not loaded with bugs and crashes?

Same problem here game (demo) crashes on selecting an Army.
Direct X9c installed and latest drivers for video as well. Hardware exceeds all requirements.

Is this just an issue with the demo or does it affect the game to?

I don't really want to purchase a buggy game.

Try editing the settings.txt file in the Rome directory, and change to multisampling=0 and fullScreen=no, see if they help.

same problem with me, have you found a way to get past this?

Hello all,

I am strongly considering buying the EU:Rome gold edition.

However, I have numerous problems with the demo that make me less willing to buy the full game itself. I have Windows Vista 64-bit with DX10 and also DX9 updated to the latest version; but nearly every time I play the demo I cannot get past the menu screen. When I select the single-player campaign, the map does not load properly and the game freezes, forcing me to Ctrl-Alt-Del back to the desktop.

The demo does seem to work OK when I turn off fullscreen in the settings file, but when I do this I am unable to access parts of the game screen. Plus, I don't want to play the game in windowed mode; if I pay for a game and have the required specs, I think I should be at least able to play it properly, i.e., fullscreen.

Any thoughts on how I can play EU:Rome without resorting to windowed mode? First correct answer will convince me to buy the gold edition ;)
