I'm really eager to play this game but right now I can't as it just won't launch . It installed just fine, downloaded and installed patch 1.02 at first launch but then every time I try to run the game the screen just goes black (my monitor menu says 1280x960, 60Hz), there is no sound and it just sits there forever. I have to kill the EXE in task manager. Tried the DX9 executable and XP SP2 compatibility mode, same thing.
Vista Home Premium 32bit fresh install, all updates installed
- Gigaybte EP45T-UD3LR, 4GB DDR3-1066, Core2Duo E8400
- eVGA GTX260 Core216 55nm, Driver 185.85 (latest)
- beQuiet! 650W PSU
- Realtek onboard sound, latest driver
- Samsung Syncmaster 215TW, 1680x1050
This system is stable as rock, cool and quiet (2x 120mm case fans) and runs everything else including games like Race Driver GRID just fine for hours without any glitches, just HAWX won't work. Any ideas?
