Shogo: Mobile Armor Division

From GOG Community Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Official overview

You play Sanjuro Makabe, a Mobile Combat Armor (MCA) pilot and Commander in the UCA Security Force. The UCA was originally formed by three dominant megacorporations (Andra Biomechanics, Armacham Technology Corporation, and Shogo Industries). Originally intended as a joint venture that would ensure the continued profitability of the three organizations that founded it, the UCA is now independent, and the dominant military power in existence.

Your mission is to locate and assassinate a rebel leader known only as Gabriel. All of the action takes place either on the planet Cronus or on the spaceship Leviathan. The Leviathan is the flagship of the UCA and is commanded by Admiral Akkaraju. Cronus is the only known source of the biologically active material known as Kato, an incredibly powerful energy source essential to the process by which interstellar travel is possible.

Your deadly enemy is The Fallen, a fanatical terrorist group lead by the mysterious Gabriel, threatens the balance of power on Cronus, and ultimately, control of Kato. You will fight them on your feet or from within one of the different types of Mobile Combat Armor, a giant mech which can run, duck, strafe, swim or transform into an ultrafast hovertank.

You will know the true power of giant robots!

Crashing of Game When Loading the Levels "Brother's Keeper" and "Belly of the Beast"

  • Some users may experience the game crashing when loading these levels. To fix this issue disable the music (either in game or via the launcher) before loading the level. Once the level has loaded music can be enabled.
  • If you own Blood 2: The Chosen + Expansion from GOG.com as well, you can apply a fix that may let you keep the music on. First, go into your Shogo folder and backup the file 'AM18.dll', now head over to your Blood 2 folder and copy its 'AM18.dll' and paste it in the Shogo folder, overwriting the file. Then, set Shogo's compatibility settings to Windows XP (Service Pack 2) and Disable Visual Themes. It's recommended you do the same to 'Client.exe' and 'ShogoSrv.exe' as well. You might now be able to play straight through these levels without crashing the game.

CPU Fix

  • If your game is unstable (crashing often) and you have more than one core, you can try creating a batch file that uses the following commands:

@echo off cd "<your game path here>" start /affinity 1 Shogo.exe exit

This will force Shogo to only see one core, and may improve stability.
