sounds like you're missing textures, this isn't any sort of pirated version is it? did it work properly before a driver update? if so, have you tried this?

hrm, well, you could always try the old standby of re-installing, or re-downloading from steam in this case. also, there might be people on the steam forums who have already run into this problem too, have you asked there?

I have this problem also. Both for JA and JO on legitimate CDs I have purchased in game stores.

JA is it's own game, and JO comes from the Best of Star Wars 5 game CD set.

I am running Windows 7, 2GB RAM, 256MB nVidia GeForce 7600GT, all with the latest drivers. I installed DirectX that came with both CDs. My gfx card will only allow me to go to DirectX9.0c. I have installed the DirectX9.0c redist pack.

I have tried running the game as admin, with every other available setting. Both MP and SP.

I used to play JA and JO on this exact machine before the Win 7 update.

I have re-installed countless times, nothing changes.

I think I may have to down-grade my GFX drivers, but I can't remember which was the one that worked. I will try it however as this is the only thing I can think of that is wrong.

If anyone has any other ideas, please help.

EDIT: Well,teh Roll-back didn't work either. There has to be some kind of configuration setup malfunction here, right?

Solution found. Well, at least it worked for me.

Uninstall "SciTech GLDirect".


I figured it out when I loaded my XP partition and installed JA and JO and they ran fine. I changed my resolution once and the next tie I restarted the game i got a "VM_create on UI failed" error (or something similar) I downloaded GLDirect, to fic the problem, and started the game and got the white screen problem I had with Windows 7. I uninstalled the program and both JA and JO went back to working fine. I switched back to Windows 7 and tried it, and awesome results. Happy man here.
