I bought the expansions to the game back when they first came out, after playing the original and loving it. At that time, they didn't have that nice warning you can't play the game on laptops. When i tried to play it, I got the black screen any time I tried to play the new content. I figured it was just a bug that would get fixed, and moved on to the 50 other games I've bought because they were on sale on steam but never had played. I've come back to the game and tried it out several times, all failing miserably. After finally taking the time to read this forum, I went back to steam and saw the unplayable on laptops warning. Would be nice to know this when I originally bought the game. I've been a loyal customer for years, loving almost everything ubisoft has put out, but after the wonderful support they have provided their fan base, I think I'm officially done with them. I'm sure they won't even notice the loss of one customer in the long run, but it's more the principle of the whole ordeal. Peace!
Still awaiting a fix for blackscreen at the start of battles. I have only owned the game since its original release. I occasionally check back to see if anything has changed. Ubisoft, are you listening? Because you sure arent responding.....

I'm using Win XP Pro and managed to get the black screen problem fixed by using msconfig and turning off Windows Audio under services. But now I'm playing without sound. I have a feeling this has something to do with nvidia drivers addressing calls to the OS. Could someone please check this out?
