Hi,
I have just bought 'Gary Grigsby's Eagle Day to Bombing the Reich' on the D-DAY30 promotion.
I installed it on my 'D' drive & it installed just fine (also the 1.03 Patch).
I then ran it for the first time and seemed to be ok except for very severe lagging.
So I exited the game back to my desktop only to see the game had altered my desktop display and I could not run the game again.
I keep getting a 'Font Init' error & it stops loading game.
What I have to do is uninstall the game & reboot my system to get my normal desktop display again.
Same issues every time I install game & run it.

My system Specs are:-
Windows 10 Home (64bit)
Intel i7 7700 CPU 3.60GHz
16gb RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 video card
All drivers & updates have been installed.

I could really do with help on this after spending just over £26 on a game that runs once
with lagging that is criminal as well as buggering up my system & not running again after
that until it's re-installed.
PLEASE SOMEONE HELP.

How does it run when you run it in windowed mode? Have you tried downloading DXWnd and running the game through that?

See the readme that came with the patch 1.03 because you need to remove the compatibility flags set by the installer the first time you run dxwnd.

Look at the general discussion thread and try downloading and running a program called dxwnd. Read the readme file in BOTR on how to use it. I have a thread in the general discussion area where I am just trying to get the game to run well in full screen, and I think I am close to getting it figured out.
