Just bought and installed the game today. Upon loading the main menu, the first thing I notice is I have no mouse pointer. I can move it around and buttons will highlight as if the mouse is hovering over, as well as click and have it work, but I can't adjust the Video Options because I can't tell where the Mouse is most of the time.
I tried launching the game with the default settings, and once in the water, the screen goes black when facing away from the flames, which seems to be all that is rendered.
Is there a way to adjust the Video options in the files using Notepad so I can fix these issues or some other way to get the mouse pointer to appear? Any help is greatly appreciated.
If you're using a Radeon X800 card, this is a known issue. The game won't function with one of these cards - at least if/until 2k patches it.
Ah. Well I have a 9700, but the problems could very well be the same for both cards. Guess I'm dead in the water (no pun intended) until they patch then.
Wow this is completely unacceptable. I have a Radeon and until I read this post I've been spending the last 2 hours trying to resolve the no mouse pointer issue.
I'm sure glad I bought a game I can't even play.
I can't even begin to express my disappointment. How could this have not been tested?
Patch this please.
