Plays Cinematic Opening and Then A Black Screen
So I start the game and it plays that awesome cinematic of all those explosions, then the screen goes black, but I can still hear the audio of what I assume is the main menu music. How to fix?

Fang here, i remember getting those sometimes as well... i usually do a ctrl alt delete and close the game and retry it... after a few tries the menu popped up sucessfuly... if this doesn't work i recommend to go to your graphic settings. go to your steam library and right click on the desired game you want to change the settings. You do have the option to skip the intros if you want for better preformance. hope this helps

oh btw, there are also an error which involves the unit constuction panel crashing the game. to fix that go the graphic settings and set your screen to about 1024x768. common error i found on here that i helped fixed several people...

If that doesn't work, let me know... there can be a few things that might need to be fixed. this game is somewhat classified as "Retro" but i still like it for it has THEFANG in it :P

As TheFang mentioned, you shouldn't use too large of a resolution (it should also be 4:3 aspect).

I also experienced the black screen + sound issue and fixed it by switching the renderer to OpenGL instead of Direct 3D from the graphics settings options.

I'm writing up a post to list some known solutions to Earth 2150 crashes and black screen issues. You can see it here: http://www.thegameengine.org/earth-2150/earth-2150-startup-crash/

If you have any comments or questions let me know!

Had a similar problem here: Win 7 64bit, 1920*1080, Direct3D. The game start up, black screen. Sound came up for 5-10 seconds. Then nothing.

Have tryed several width*hight settings and OpenGL. Nothing was helpfull. But without the shirty intros the game seems to run normal in D3D 1920*1080 size.
