Thread: M2TW !! No Shadow on DX10 cards !!

    Exclamation M2TW !! No Shadow on DX10 cards !!

    Hi all,

    I just want to report here a (big) problem in M2TW (also in Kingdoms)

    The game doesn’t display the shadows of vegetation on the battlefield.
    This happens with any DX10 card.


    However, shadows are displayed in the 1st demo (not the gold)

    This looks like a problem from the game itself on all DX10 cards

    The official thread about this issue is at the official TW forum

    Please join and help us to get a patch!!

    It was already told to CA developers months before Kingdoms release. Good luck with your Crusade.


    "The game [M2TW] is actually more balanced than rock/paper/scissor. Combinations that work: rock vs rock - paper vs paper - scissor vs scissor.
    A new frontier that wipes off a bunch of old concepts"

    Yes, i know it's an old problem.
    In fact this problem exists since the releases of M2TW and the first DX10 card.
    (~10/2006)

    Anyway thanks for your support ;)

    I could list 100 other bugs I would rather have fixed before this one. Fix the gameplay bugs before fixing broken eyecandy.

    Has everyone raising such an uproar is using dx10 as in Vista? M2 was written for dx9 as in xp when Vista was still a dream. I doubt you will ever see M2 with dx10's bells and whistles with them working on Empire.

    No, no.

    M2 is a DX9 game, played with DX9 on a DX9-DX10 card.

    That must be the problem...

    Hi,

    The shadow bug (+many) is fixed with the last patch
    http://shoguntotalwar.yuku.com/topic/33549?page=1

    But only for kingdoms.
    To get the shadows in the main game, apply the retrofit mod

    Have fun.
