Issue description
Item 492 imported from sourceforge.net tracker on 2013-01-28 18:21:29

When I launch the game, it changes the screen resolution to 640x480 and pops a message box saying: "Couldn't register window class. OK". Then I am back to the OS.

Thanks for the report, but we need a little more info about that problem. First of all, which version of the game do you use? What kind of hardware and windows version?
