Total War: SHOGUN 2 Collection

The supreme art of war.

Before you buy, expand this description to check the system requirements below.

As leader of one of twelve competing clans, use political ambition, military brilliance and ruthless cunning to unify 16th century Japan under one undisputed shogun: you. Master your clan’s unique martial strengths to triumph in spectacular real-time battles and dominate the turn-based campaign map.

With strategic gameplay inspired by the Samurai code of honour and striking graphics that evoke Japanese art and landscape, Total War: SHOGUN 2 Collection is a dramatic and detailed depiction of epic events and a unique expression of the Total War series’ magnificent heritage.

Key features:

• Command samurai, ninja and warrior monks in spectacular real-time battles across snowcapped mountains, around fortified hilltop citadels and through fields garlanded with cherry blossom.

• Assert your dominance over a turn-based campaign map by developing infrastructure, researching new technologies and using clever diplomacy and covert agents to bend rival clans to your will.

• Act wisely in your negotiations, display mercy on the battlefield and follow the ancient ways of Bushido and Chi to earn honour, strengthen your generals’ bonds of loyalty and improve your status with other clans.

• Refine your strategy with the help of an in-game encyclopaedia containing both gameplay information and historical detail, then execute it using an intuitive and beautiful interface inspired by Japanese woodcut prints.

• Contains all add-on content packs including the Rise of the Samurai Campaign expansion, which challenges you to establish Japan’s first shogunate in a stand-alone campaign set 400 years before the events of the main game (Blood Pack not included).

    • http://applecenter.pl/ Łukasz Florczak

      Thanks! :)

      • Boomhauer22

        Have you had a chance to add music to the features list?

  • friend

    i see no affiliate links, just normal itunes/mac app store link?

    • Łukasz Florczak

      It’s a iTunes link with additional parameter “at”.

  • Nick

    I’d like to buy it, because it is perfect for my website, but can I display the App Screenshots? Without would be really useless for me :/

    • Łukasz Florczak

      Yes, you can. Just click „Gallery” link in a box of app.

    • Łukasz Florczak

      The link is here:

      • Nick

        ahh thanks a lot!

  • Leo

    App Store which countries support plug-in? Russia’s interests. Will the prices displayed in rubles, and application names in Russian ?

    • Łukasz Florczak

      Hi. Yes, all App Store are available. Price will be displayed in rubles. But Application names are not translated.

      • Leo

        Спасибо

      • Leo

        Thank you!

  • Leo

    Do you have the plugin support for mobile devices ? Correctly displayed ?

    • Łukasz Florczak

      Yes. For mobile browser there is a simplified version of product (app, ebook, album, etc) box.

      • Leo

        Thank you so much!!!

  • Leo

    Add applications to the current discounts. But the plugin does not show prices in App Store. There are only a button with the basic price. How Come?

    • Łukasz Florczak

      The plugin updates information about an app every few hours (configurable on the plugin settings page, default it is 12 hours).

    • Łukasz Florczak

      And plugin shows discounts price only for products you added before. Apple doasn’t share information about price drops. If you add any app, plugin is save them price in a cache. When price will be lower in the future, the plugin is showing, that it is a price drop.

  • Leo

    I get it. Thanks

  • Leo

    Hello. How to increase the number of characters displayed in the title of the application? Too little

    • Łukasz Florczak

      It’ll be configurable with a next update.
      At this moment, you can manually edit functions-appstore.php file. In line 28-30 you have „if”:
      if (strlen($results[‘trackName’]) > 50) {
      $title = substr($results[‘trackName’], 0, 50) . ‘…';
      }

      Change „50” in lines 28 and 29 to another value.

      • Leo

        You helped me a lot. Thank you

  • Leo

    Can you add the ability to manually register the previous price of the application to be displayed then. For example, by adding the old prices in the shortcode. Is very important. Sorry for my english)))

    • Łukasz Florczak

      OK. I try to add this.

  • Leo

    When can we expect such a change ?

    • Łukasz Florczak

      First half of March.

  • Leonid

    Hi. Where is the long-awaited update? Really looking forward to!

    • Łukasz Florczak

      Very sorry for the delay. Currently, I am adding final corrections and do the last test, so update will be available very soon.

      • Leonid

        Thanks for the update! But I would like to know about whether it is possible to manually register the old value of the application so that it appears above the “Buy” button . For example, [appstore id=000000000 old price=59]. This is important if the site contains news on hot offers from the App Store. Thanks for any reply!

        • Łukasz Florczak

          Oh… I totally forgot about that :( But good news is that update 1.4.1 with this option is waiting for approval by Envato Stuff ;) More info about „price” parameter for [appstore] and [ibookstore] shortcodes you will find in documentation.
          Regards!

          • Leonid

            Thanks! I’ll wait . You have the best of all plug-ins)))

  • Leonid

    old price is not displayed on the screens of mobile devices, if you enter it manually (price=111, for example)

  • Leonid

    old price is not displayed on the screens of mobile devices, if you enter it manually (price=111, for example). iPhone 6 not displayed, iPhone 6 Plus displayed))

    • Łukasz Florczak

      It’s strange, because the parameter “price” has no relationship with a function that displays this information. Could you send me a link to your site with a test post with any application added by shortcode with price? I’ll check it.

    • Łukasz Florczak

      At this moment I can’t check it on iPhone 6, but I open your site on iPhone 4 (iOS 7) and iPhone 5s (iOS 8) and it works fine.

      • Leonid

        I have iPhone 6 with iOS 8.3 beta 3

        • Leonid

          Maybe it’s because my beta)

          • Łukasz Florczak

            It’s possible, but strange, because „old price” is a simple HTML element with no special CSS style. I’ll try to check it on iPhone 6 with stable version of iOS.

          • Leonid

            ОК.

          • Łukasz Florczak

            I have a screenshots from iPhone 6 simulator in Xcode with iOS 8.2. The view should be the same on real iPhone 6 with this iOS version.

          • Leonid

            Very strange. Try to return to a stable version of ios on your iPhone 6)

    • Łukasz Florczak

      Is a buy/download button orange on iPhone 6?

  • Leonid
  • Leonid

    Now why the mapping old price does not work anywhere ( (even from your computer

  • Leonid

    Try to completely uninstall the plugin and reinstall the latest version. Not working affiliate program

    • Łukasz Florczak

      Are you sure you have the newest version of plugin from Codecanyon? Soon after version 1.4.1 we added an important update 1.4.3 with small changes in affiliate program links.

  • Leonid

    Absolutely positively sure

    Hi. Plug-in stops responding to button presses, if the model is set at the bottom of the post.

    • Łukasz Florczak

      Hi!

      It looks like a problem with post footer and a share section (screenshot). Them position is wrong and it covers a plugin box.

      Try to add in your template Custom CSS this code:

      footer.entry-meta {
      position: inherit;
      }

      I think it should help.

      • Leonid

        Your method has helped! Thank you very much!

        • Łukasz Florczak

          You’re welcome :)

  • hypemmco

    Any plans to allow items from the iOS App Store?

    • Łukasz Florczak

      iOS App Store is supported. Look, for example, on Godus app in a post.
      At this moment app bundles from iOS App Store are not supported, because they are still not supported by Apple API.

  • Danai

    Can I specific app name for show in my post? Such as I review some game and want to show this game in my post.

    • Łukasz Florczak

      You can put in the post shortcode like this: [appstore id=815181808] (the number is an unique app id). And then all information (app name, price, icon etc.) will be automatically downloaded from the iTunes server.

  • Thomas Gregory Soracco

    Hi, I can’t quite tell if this can be used to sell music. I have a website for an independent music producer and they want to have samples of the songs and then purchases from the iTunes store, does this plug-in accomplish that? Thanks

  • Leonid

    Hi, I made everything as usual, but the plug-in doesn’t work. Thus that yesterday’s boxes in a normal state, and today’s aren’t present

  • Leonid

    Almost everything works besides that the prices in dollars

    • Łukasz Florczak

      Hi. If you have not changed a default store on a plugin settings page it’s propably once again temporary bug with iTunes API. And I once again changed temporary the cache interval to 1 hour, refreshed this site (from your screenshot) and downloaded information is already correct.

      If such a situation would arise in the future, you can do the same. And I’ll try add any update, which will protect against something like this (it was never happened before).

  • Leonid

    The old price in norm, and new not really))
