UFO:AI won't start
« on: October 01, 2011, 02:11:40 pm »
Hey everyone,

After hearing good things about this game I decided to download it and give it a try. Unfortunately, my game never makes it past the startup phase. When I run the executable, the console is shown for a short while, after which the game appears to launch (I think - it's just a black screen) and immediately crashes. Explorer.exe always crashes along with it.


My computer: Windows 7 x64, ATI radeon 4850 HD, 4gb ram
edit: catalyst drivers are up to date, a couple of months old at worst.

Versions I've tried: 2.3.1, 2.4-dev-1301086950  (same problem for both .3 and .4) - updated 2.4 to 1315653194

Things I've tried:
- disabled Aero
- all available compatibility launch options
- "-windowed" "-w" and another often recommended launch option which I don't remember (/ufo set... something)
- downloaded someone else's config.cfg file and put it in the correct folder (I never had my own config file)
- set fullscreen and the intro movie parameters to "0" in config
- set resolution to 1920*1080 in config to be sure (some games seem to crash when they launch in a different resolution)
- enabled Triple Buffering for OpenGL in my video card's control panel

My console log is remarkably short:
