As it is stated many times in this thread steamfucker.dlll is a false-positive and is needed to run the game. If you block it the game will not work.
I have also explained how to block firewall several times in different threads.
Either block in firewall or just unplug your internet cable before running game:

If you want to setup the block in firewall before running the game using Windows Firewall in Win7 (should be similar in other versions):
1) Open Start-menu and type wf.msc in the Search or Run field and press ENTER
2) Click Outbound Rules on the left
3) Click New Rule... on the right
4) Make sure Program is selected and press Next
5) Press Browse and then find your Total War: Shogun 2 install directory and select shogun2.exe
6) Make sure Block the connection is selected and press Next
7) Make sure all 3 options are checked and press Next
8) Type Shogun2 or whatever you like and press Finish
9) DONE! you may now run game - with admin rights


PS: Valjean, i like the fact you keep calling me ASS not AAS. Are you trying to hint something :dontthink

What do you mean by "i did what you told me"? Did you just block game in firewall?

Because you still need to deal with steamfucker.dll before the game works.
When it have already been locked you need to redownload and reapply the crack (from vovan) to get a working DLL again.

Depending on what antivirus software you use you need to either add game dir to exceptions (before unpacking again), choose Ignore/allow when it asks (doesn't work in all software as many still keep it locked) or completely uninstalling your antivirus (and preferble installing another that isn't so sensitive to falsepositive and/or have a working Ignore function - like Microsoft Sec Essentials)

And remember it has to be the PROPER crack from vovan, NOT the original crack that came with the game.
There is no other working crack/patch for this game atm, but doesn't matter anyway because the one from vovan works fine when you apply it correctly.

Did you redownload & reapply the PROPER crack from vovan?
It is not enough to just unpack it again as the DLL inside RAR also can be locked, so delete old versions and download fresh copy of vovan crack.
Did you get a malware warning from antivirus again this time around?
If you still get a warning the DLL is often locked even if you choose Ignore/Allow depending on the brand of antivirus/antimalware software.

Did you run game without internet access by using firewall or disconnect?
Did you run Shogun2.exe with admin rights (Run as administrator)?

Try to start over with entire install to rule out corruption during all your troublehooting.

1) Uninstall entire game
2) Make sure your video card driver is the newest, else update to it.
3) Reinstall game including Redists when it asks after install
4) Apply the freshly downloaded PROPER crack from vovan as instructed.
5) Make sure to block game access to internet by setting rule in firewall or unplugging internet cable.
6) Run shogun2.exe with admin rights.
7) Start a new game. Do not load any saves from pre-reinstall (if you didn't delete them during uninstall)

It sometimes can take a while to load, but besides that I can't help you any more besdies what I have - if you are sure you did everything the right way.
I can ask again: are you sure you applied the vovan crack, not the original SKIDROW one and did you remove internet access before running game.
When it freezes can you change to desktop using ALT+TAB or CTRL+ALT+DELETE (+"Start taskmanager" in Win7)?

Inside vovan release is a crack folder. Inside this folder is 6 files. You take ALL 6 files and place them in the install dir for the game. Windows should asks permission to overwrite originals if you placed it right. Did you do it like this?

TWS2 is buggy for some users so you may just be one of the unlucky ones where your hardware combinations doesn't play well with this game.
One example seem to be AMD HD 7-series ( http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=531017 )
If you don't have top-of-the-line video card try lowering graphics settings in the game to a lower level than game suggests.

Make sure to update to the newest driver for BOTH video card and sound card. To get the newest drivers you often need to go to the websites of the manufactors of the video/sound hardware instead of the website for computer/motherboard website which isn't always updated to the newest.
It also a good idea to update any other drivers that may be obsolete like motherboard drivers. And also fully update your Windows including service pack.

This program is also very RAM heavy. How much RAM do you have? If you don't have alot it can be good idea to increase the size of virtual RAM.
In Win7: Righ-click My computer -> Properties -> Advanced system settings -> Performance - Settings -> Advanced -> Virtual Memory - Change.
Then uncheck 'Automatically manage....' -> click system drive in list -> click 'Custom size'. Then set 'Initial size' to a bit over the Recommended value (shown in button of window) and set 'Maximum size' to about double of 'Initial size' (if you have enough harddrive space for it). Finish with multiple clicks on OK and restart computer.
If you have 32bit windows you should also follow this guide to increase virtual addressing space: http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=238484

Also run a DXDIAG to tst DirectX settings. In Win7 do it by pressing Windows button + R, then write dxdiag in command field and press Enter.
When it finishes the test you can press 'Save all information' and post contents of it here. BUT post it inside a Code tag (press Code button above post txtfield) so your post doesn't take up tons of space.

You can also try Game Booster ( http://www.iobit.com/gamebooster.html ). It is free if you download it within the next 14 days.

You can also try the RIP-version: viewtopic.php?f=82&t=216987&p=1232562
It is build from the same SKIDROW/VOVAN combination, so might not make a difference, but the cracking is done for you, so might help if problem is there.
You still need to avoid detection of steamfucker.dll and block game from internet access. Download is only 4GB, but takes a long time (hours) to unpack.
Read the NFO posted with the RIP-version for more info and instructions.

Note that both the version here and the RIP-version can take a long time to load, so if ou think it is frozen give it plenty of time to load.

No, as I already have mentioned there is no other working crack/patch at the moment.
So either follow some of the suggestions in my 2 last posts or wait till a patch comes (if ever).
You could start the download of RIP-version and perform some of the troubleshooting steps while you wait like updating drivers and windows, posting dxdiag log, increasing virtual memory etc.

Hi there :) - I'm trying to download the vovan crack, but my download has been on 'waiting' for quite some while now - is it because no one is uploading it?

Could you post the fulle error message? Is it "C++ Runtime error R6030 CRT not initialized"
If so you properly failed to install some of the redists.
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... aspx?id=29

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... px?id=5555
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... px?id=8328
(if you have x64 you can also install the 64-bit versions)

You can also go to the redists folder of the game and run all the install there (even if you think you already have it).
Here you will find these files:

---vcredist_x86_90.exe
---vcredist_x86.exe
---vcredist_x86-sp1.exe

Install them in the above order, reboot, and play.

Also make sure to run game with admin rights (Run as administrator) if you're on Vista/Win7.
You can also check for corrupt system files by running the following command in the Run-field:
sfc /scannow

I believe it contains these (but not 101% sure):
ncf / total war shogun 2 czech.ncf
ncf / total war shogun 2 english.ncf
ncf / total war shogun 2 french.ncf
ncf / total war shogun 2 german.ncf
ncf / total war shogun 2 italian.ncf
ncf / total war shogun 2 polish.ncf
ncf / total war shogun 2 russian.ncf
ncf / total war shogun 2 spanish.ncf

Remember to use the vovan crack, make sure steamfucker.dll is not blocked by antivirus and make sure to block access to internet by firewall or disconnect.
Also try to install all redists during install even if you think you already have them. This way you're sure you have the correct versions needed for game.

Hi guys, I'm new to the forums here but I've been trying to install this and the older FLT version of just Shogun. I haven't been able to get through a complete install of fall of the samurai the 22.35 gig version from SKIDROW. I keep getting an error early at movies.pack saying it is corrupted. I know that isn't the case because I've forced rechecked and downloaded 3 times from different sites. I've never been able to sucessfully complete an installation. If I ignore I get other .pack errors later in the installation. How do I correct this as I've downloaded and rechecked from multiple sources. Any help's appreciated!

Have you tried downloading using the links from this thread? (You said different sites, but not if STF was one of them)
Corruption can also be caused by hard drive, so try to change your download & temp location to a different drive if possible.
Do you install by mounting or burning? It is best to mount as burning can also create errors.
Try mounting with Virtual CloneDrive (which is also good at handling multiple disc installs): http://static.slysoft.com/SetupVirtualCloneDrive.exe

Do you think Daemon tools is adequate. Its weird that its happening for so many different downloads its telling me something maybe is interfering on my computer side but its the movies.pack just says its corrupt or something. I'll dl from here.
