i'm getting an error when starting the game using any graphics settings. it changes the resolution when starting the game, then plays the generic windows error sound and then drop back to the desktop with a gray box the same size that the game was to be. the error messsage is usually in the background but if i lower the settings low enough i can see what it says: "d3d.CreateDevice failed(Sapphire RADEON X 1600 PRO)" with an ok button. when i click on the button it takes me to the video setup window for the game.

i have updated to the most recent update of direct x, and the most recent version of graphics drivers.

it doesn't get to a point in the game that it makes an error log


**EDIT** I have also tried a reinstall...i'm not sure what i've done wrong :confused:

I have passed your issue on to the developers of the game and hope to get more information on what could be wrong soon. It could help if you would send me a dxdiag of your computer to florian (at) paradoxplaza (.) com.
