The quotes in Shogun 2 are amazing. But the loading screen loads so fast. Does anybody know where to get the quotes they show there?

Get a slower computer! In all seriousness though, it's probably in an archive or compiled into a binary somewhere, as looking through the Empire folders, I can't find the quotes, while iirc, they were just a text file in RTW. – Macha Apr 8 '11 at 19:35

here are all the quotes in .txt format, if anyone is interested.

mediafire? There's no way I bother to download a simple txt with a site like that, but thanks anyway. – o0'. Apr 16 '11 at 15:41
@Loo The problem is that we can't host them directly :/ – badp Apr 16 '11 at 15:53

Yay i found them!

For the english version they are in:

<game folder>/data/data.pack
Inside the file go /db/quotes_tables/quotes

For the translated version of the game (russian in my example) they are in:

<game folder>/data/local_ru.pack
Inside the file go /text/localisation.loc 
and there look for tags starting with "quotes_quote_onscreen_".

To open a .pack file use this program
