I have an Nvidia 8600GTS with newest drivers, vista 32bit, enough processor/ram, and vista standard sound drivers if that helps.

Could you be any more of an ass?

This is a known issue with legit copies of the game. The known issues concerning the pirated copy is the galaxy map and saving.


Just wait for a patch TC.

I have waited for a lot longer than 30 seconds before >_>

i have had this issue with other games before (UT3 and Shadow of Chernobyl) and I fixed that with -dsound option and replacing some dll files (like OpenAl32.dll) and such. Didn't work here.

Try to change your resolution to 1680 by 1050 , it had worked for me
