Just got "Cliffs of Dover". When I launch it, all goes well until I hit "FLY", at which point the game goes away and I'm left looking at my Wallpaper. I can hear the audio, and there's a small, pale blue rectangle in the upper left corner saying "IL-2 Sturmovik, Cliffs...". But that's it. I can see in the bottom tool bar that "Cliffs..." is running. What am I overlooking? And...does this happen to anyone else?

Hi, is your install a 'steam' version or a retail disc? Do you have the latest patches? is your video card up to the job (with the latest drivers) of displaying this game? I managed after about an hour to get the game to play correctly.... but it is hungry for resources .......... i would also check your DirectX version and settings.Hope this helps,,,if your systems good then I will try and help you dig deeper.
Here's my System Specs.:
Intel® Core™ 2 Quad CPU Q9550 @ 2.83GHz 2.83GHz / 8.00Gb RAM / NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT
And here's a bit of advice I got from a fellow member at the Over Flanders Fields Forum:
Since the game was originally meant to be played with Steam (I'm assuming it still is) may I ask if you have verified the game cache? In Steam library r-clic the games title, select properties, then select local files, clic verify cache. Steam automatically applies patches if you've allowed that.
I've done that. I also downloaded Driver Detective and run it and my machine says "Device Driver Software Installed successfully", so I think I'm up to speed there.
Is it a "Steam" version or a Retail Disc? Don't know for sure. I bought it through Amazon. The box cover says (in the upper left corner) PC DVD ONLINE. The install put the Steam program and icon on my machine and I've created a Steam Account.
Is there anything else I can tell you?
Just got back from "Options" where I turned off "Full Screen" and set Level of Detail to "Very Low". Now, when I try to fly, I still hear the sound and the game window does not disappear but it's solid black. I guess that's progress of some sort.
Your GF9500GT video card is inadequate. From http://ubisoft-en.custhelp.com/app/a..._id/14550/p/88 :
A new video card from the above list will make it playable, though the cards at the left end of the list will need settings turned right down.*SUPPORTED VIDEO CARDS AT TIME OF RELEASE:
Fiddling with settings for your current card might get video but is unlikely to get playable performance even at the lowest settings.

Thanks Tully. I'll check with my computer-tech guy and see.
And the news is good. He agrees. So I'm off to get a new card. Thanks, again.
