I just bought and installed. I set my screen resolution, as directed in the manual, to 1280x1024, and ran the game. I got the opening screen and selected New Campaign. Immediately my screen went black and I saw "No Signal" on screen.
I reset/restarted and set my screen(TV) to 4.3 from 16.9, then set my resolution to the above again. This time I didn't get as far as the game main screen. Immediate dark, no signal, reboot.
I think modern games should/mostly do set the resolution to match what they need. I'm a happy camper now, especially after reading the "no returns" policy. We buy in good faith, but they don't return the faith.
