I bought this game earlier today, but I'm getting an error every time I try to run it. The error happens either during or right after it says "Loading Nato GFX." It's a windows popup, but since I'm using a Danish version of windows, I can't give you the exact wording. The message ends with a weird sentence that says something along the lines of "the font "Arial" does not support the format "Regular," whatever that means.

I get the choice to either ignore the error or cancel, but ignoring just leads to the loading window saying "Finishing Up," then hanging. There's a log, too, which I have copied below, in case that helps.

This is with the 1.01b patch, btw, but I tried reinstalling, and the 1.00b gives the same result.

Hi,

You somehow have a misconfigured arial file.
It should be present on all versions of Windows, but apperently a small ammount of players have lost their arial files somehow.

Basically the solution is to reinstall the Arial font on your PC.

check these links on how to re-install fonts:

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-desktop/lost-font-arial-regular-how-can-i-reinstall-it/a36c5b9b-a192-44f3-b1dc-d43d900abd3a

http://www.styopkin.com/articles/install_fonts.html

Let me know if this helps

since you are the 2nd person reporting this issue i'll prioritize coding in a safe-fail for missing arial systems for upcoming patch v1.02. thanks for reporting.

kind regards,
Vic

Thanks for the reply. I tried reinstalling the arial font, but I still couldn't get it to work. But then I found this page via google, downloaded and ran the exe, and now the game works. :)
