well, i recommend returning it and try to get your money back. overall this game isnt worth buying, even if you are a diehard spellforce fan =/
as for how to get it working. you might want to try going to the offical forums rather than gamefaqs... we arnt exactly known for our good tech related helps
Aaaah, but I like GameFAQS so much... Haha, well I got it working but this game has lost its way. Spellforce 1 was a legend, Spellforce 2 Gold Edition was just a disappointment, Spellforce 2: Faith in Destiny is just a fail. Waisted money just to learn never to buy another spellforce game again.
