Blackscreen + Instant crash [Fixed]
Just bought the game, but as soon as I boot it up, it crashes. I tried running it in compatibility mode (Windows XP service pack 2 & 3) which gives me 2 prompts and than tells me the game's already running.

Anyone got a fix?


Right, so I found a fix that seems to work for me. Open up your start menu and type in %appdata%
When you do this, you will see a folder called "Roaming" open it. Inside look for the Atari folder.
Open it and look for the Options.txt file. Open it and remove the "FirstTime" line. Then save the file and try starting the game again.

Worked for me. All credit goes towards: pizzahead911 (

I haven't tried changing the resolution yet, but I'll try that tomorrow. Thanks Archimedes!
