I couldn't find any solution to this problem myself, and I couldn't find a thread here that could help me either, so now I'm just throwing it out there:
I have had Silent Hunter 4 for some time, and it worked perfectly the alst time I played it.
So I was stunned when I dug it up and tried to play it again, and the game crashed:
I start up the game, it shows the 2 movies and all is fine. But then the game load-screen comes up and when the load is complete the screen goes black, with no error-message or anything.
I can only get back to me desktop by ctrl+alt+del. The game shows up in my taskbar as "not answering"
My PC specs:
Intel P4 3,00 gHz
3 gb RAM
nVidia Geforce 7950, with 512 Mb RAM
I have already updated the game to 1.4, my drivers (graphics, soundcard and directX) and reinstalling the game several times.
Btw, I noticed that when I open the vanilla version of the game I CAN get into the menu, but all the "options" is written on top of each other in the top left corner, and I'm only able to click on the "exit to desktop" option.
Any help is more than welcome
