thanks for the help. i think it is resolution related but i just havent figured it out yet. i have tried three different monitors including my tv. i got sound on one monitor but still wouldnt let me in, the others just black screen no sound. i have done verify and will keep tring that too.

What OS are you running the game on? Microsoft released an update that botched steam users. Look for kb2803821 in Add and remove programs. Once you remove it Restart.

Try changing the compatibility settings of your steam>steamapps>common>tropico 3>tropico 3.exe : check disable visual themes and disable desktop composition

I have done all of that but I do not have disable visual themes or disable desktop composition options. I am running Windows 8.

If you work with 2 screens, type windows key + P, select your main screen.
You won't have to do it next times.
