Having Trouble starting the game
I just bought Earth 2150 Trilogy. It is the first game I have personally bought form steam and whenever I double click on the shortcut, it loads a small black screen, about a quarter size of the screen, and then closes out without anything else showing. What do I need to do to actually play the game?

Fang here, have you setup the settings for the game before starting it first? if not go to the your steam library, select the earth 2150 game you want to play, right click on it. there should be an option for "Graphic settings", i recommend to set the resolution to "1024x768" so it won't crash when you go to the unit construction panel (F1). its also recomended to skip intros if the game doesn't open which can be checked on the graphic settings as well. hope this helps

hmm what is your comp statistics. you might have an incompatable graphics card prehaps. this game is quite old. disableing the intros might work... not too sure...

Betting its this http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Change-Data-Execution-Prevention-settings?SignedIn=1)

Data Execution Prevention crashes the game after you go past the choose player screen for Skirmish Campaigns and Multiplayer.

Use the link to turn it off. Works for Windows 7 and 8/8.1
