I'm sorry if there is another thread in which I should have posted for my problem I hope you'll understand Razz

Anyways I recently purchased a GeForce FX 5500 OC graphics card and I looked at the sticky listing compatible hardware so OMF:BG should work with all GeForce models. But after going into single player and selecting training mode, it gives me a loading screen. It finishes loading and tells me to press any key to continue, so I do and it gives me a black screen. The main menu music is still playing and I can bring up the menu by pressing ESC so it's not frozen or anything.

I currently have my resolution on my desktop and ingame set to 1024x768 can anyone help me with my problem?

You have the latest patch, right? Also, what graphic settings are you using, or does it happen with all of them? Oh yeah, and what graphic driver version are you running?

So far, it sounds like an anti-glow Smile problem. Usually, the screen is like, all white or something from too much glow being thrown at the screen. Your problem sounds opposite of that. Smile Try turning off glow and see if that helps you any.

It happens with every graphiics setting, even when I turn glow off.

I'm using version 71.88 of my graphics driver, it came in a cd right out of the box.

Edit: I checked the nVidia website and now have the latest drivers, I also cut this out from an in-game screenshot if it helps any

I think glow was the main problem for geforce cards with BG.

Sorry for reviving this but I finally fixed my problem, I upgraded from a Pentium III 800mHz to a Pentium Celeron D 2.13 gHz and it works fine now. The minimum requirements on the back of the OMF:BG box lied.

Then I guess it was a software issue. I'm sure you would have had to reinstall Windows entirely when you upgraded. And I've run OMF:BG on a 500MHz Pentium III in the past.

My machine for the pre-limited test was a 433 MHz celeron. :p
