Hey NightStalker16,

Have you tried setting your video settings to 32-bit? the game needs to run at that setting. My BF wouldn't run at first and then I looked it up and change the bit settings. From then on, I'm good to go.

Hey NightStalker,

are u sure that SWB can run on a Vanta card?
If i remember good, the minimal spec said minimum a T&L card with 64MB of memory.

Nvidia Vanta cards haven't T&L and (in Europe) there was usually in 2 version: 16 and 32 MB.

If the CPU clock is lower then minimum required is not a problem (I have a Athlon900 and i have seen SWB run on a Duron700. Minimum required is 1GHZ). But if Video card hasn't the required memory, this card cant run SWB... =/

i have a radeon 9700 and when i want to start the game there is a black screnn for 5 secs and then im back on my desktop

I have:
2.4Ghz intel
256MB ATI Radeon 9550
Windows XP Professional service pack 2

And I'm having exactly the same problem. If anyone can shed some light on this I would appreciate it, I bought it brand new and its a clean install. Its fine in the menu but when I try to start a battle (i've tried Galactic Conquest, Campaign and training) but before it even begins loading the screen goes black for half a second and then crashes back to the desktop.

If anyone has a solution to this it would be VERY handy, I'm eager to play.
