    Unhappy June 2011 Shogun 2 demo doesn't work?

    Well, I wanted to try it out and I went to extract it, almost as it's done 7zip says "Cannot extract "patch_movies.pack" Then it refuses to continue, I cannot find a way past this? I've tried just installing it without that file but then I get a popup saying " The program can't start because Awesomium.dll is missing from your computer." I've tried looking through the rar provided but I can't find it.

    Help?

    I too found this problem. Looks like Awesomium.dll isn't that awesome.

    I was hoping to save a bit of bandwidth and get it from the disc.

    After some research awesomium.dll is some kind of web plugin for the game.

    I cannot find legit downloads for the file(and I do not own it so cannot upload) however it is availiable on less legal sites if you google for it.
    It sucks as it's like a 14gb demo but if you have the bandwidth then just download the demo from steam.

    Angry Same problem...

    Same problem with installation, VERY annoying. Not sure if this is causing everyone who tries to install a problem, if so, it's a shambles.

    No way am I going to go and download some random file, or the demo from Steam, and use-up my precious download allowance. If the demo is nerfed for everyone then someone cocked-up.

    Default refund

    I subscribe to PC Gamer for the demo disk. If the demo's aren't working then there is no point in me continuing with the subscription. I want a refund!

    It's not like this is the first time either

    Default same here

    I wasted £5.99 on this faulty disc - I have the same error as above.

    Surely Future Publishing test the software before they send it out?
    This is the last time I'm buying this magazine.

    Stop making posts about this, please. It's not a trojan - don't believe everything your free antivirus tells you.
