I just bought SotP. The installation worked fine and the updater told me that the game is current (1.10).
Nevertheless, I can't play... when I launch the game, I see the Wasteland Interactive Logo and hear some music. The computer switches to a low resolution and then I get an image of an aircraft and the SotP logo. That's it. Nothing happens.
I cannot end this screen and have to run the Task Manager to kill it. One curious sidenote: If I launch the Task Manager, the background image switches to another image with a ship, but as soon as I close or minimize the Task Manager window, the aircraft and logo are back again.
I'm using Windows 7 64 Bit. My specs are: i5 @ 2,67 GHz, 4 GB RAM, ATI RADEON HD 5770.
