Welcome to the boards Lord Harlock. Ive played through the first 7 missions of the game (not the demo) and can tell you that I only one had one issue playing it and it was my fault - I was using a 3rd party screen capture utility and it obviously didnt sit right with the program.

Other than that, the game plays smoothly, takes you on a rollcoaster ride between feeling safe and crapping yourself wondering when the enemy fighters on you six are going to release the fatal shot!

It would be a shame that you didnt get this game because the demo didnt work. I hear your complain and it would be unacceptable for me too but you be missing out a the chance to play a very good game.

SO if you post the actual problems getting it started someone maybe able to help? If you are willing to give it a go!

- Have you tried to disable any AV or Firewall software you have running?
- What platform are you using -XP or Vista?

Hi there,

The demo released worldwide should be the one with enhanced Vista support and improved support for multi-core processors - can you let me know where you downloaded the demo?

I know that people have been playing the GamersHell version among others so perhaps it would help if you gave that a go? http://www.gamershell.com/download_21082.shtml

Kind regards
Susana Meza

well i've had pretty much every single problem you guys said..
and what did i find out..
that the codecs i already had in the pc were messing everything up..
uninstall some of them and you may be able to play the game..
here i had to trash both haali media splitter and de k-lite codec pack..
now the games runs proprerly...if that dont do the trick for you guys, i dont know what can it be..
