Black screen

#1smeghead83Posted 2/14/2009 10:43:57 AM

I just got this game and am trying to play it.

I can get into the game menu and everything works fine, its only after i start to play the game (after the brefing screen) that i get problems.

and by problems i mean that the screen goes black, i can hear characters talking and myself walking about but i cannot see anything, only strange lights and shapes as i move about.

The exact same thing happens to me. I found out through the support page that this game will not work with Ati Radeon HD graphics cards, which I have. You can only play this game on older Nvidea or Radeon cards basically. If you are using an older card, you may want to update the drivers to see if that helps.

AM using a Radeon ATI HD 4650

and to make it work (well only on the first 2 levels properly) you need to go into your documents and settings and into the starship troopers folder, once inside then go into the settings folder and open the file in there. then edit the "distort" line from 1 to 0

Well hopefully Stranglite (Now Rebellion Software) Throws out a Little Hotfix!!

Maybe ATI will ad the little Fix to there v9.2 Catalyst Drivers?

My older card an ATI X1900XTX played it without breaking a sweat at 1280x1024, but then again

that card also pushed Crysis at full tilt and never hesitated!!

In know it is a couple year old game, but I have seen driver updates for older games before on

there fix it list!!

The only other problem in the game for me is the Missing textures where lights would be..

Thanks

I think thats the problem we all have..missing textures for lights, hence why you can only see anything when you use your flash light.
