My computer:
-Windwos 8.1 - 64.bit

Do both of you use win8?

Why not try a "HD" resolution like 1920x1080 or 1920x1200?

i have tried it on my other computer (windows 7, 1920x1080) and it works without any problem... but at my laptop i can´t take that hd resolution. the highest resolution is 1366x768.
maybe the problem is with win8.1 or with the resolution, but i think its the resolution....

i use windows 8.1

1280x1084 is all i can get mine to... but stronghold extreme works just fine...

I use Win 8.1 - if you put desktop icons on, I noticed two popped up, one doesn't start the game (black box) and one does start just fine

go to the folder where the game is installed
it should be something like
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Stronghold Crusader Extreme"
there locate the "stronghold crusader.exe" right click, properties, compatibility, and there change compatibility with windows vista
