Game won't start
Anyone else having trouble launching this game? Tried compatibility mode, running as administrator, etc. No matter what, game gets stuck loading engine and crashes. Using W8

I got the game to launch after installing the fan patch (see but once the game launches past the main menu, the resolution gets all screwy. (win8)

ihave the same problem and i use w8

are you useing W8 or 8.1 because 8.1 is much more stable when it comes to games. Alot of stuff I had that would not run on W8 started working when I updated to 8.1. Might be worth a try if you havent upgraded yet. Other then that all I had to do is set it to run xp service pack 3 and it ran no problem.
