Game won't start

Recommended Posts

Which version of CM are you attempting to play ? Whose distribution is it (CDV's or BFC's) ? I think only CMBO has an intro movie utilizing the Indeo codec (which you have to pay to get now). I'm not sure what codec CDV uses for some of their splash-screen mini-movies.

If you assume that QuickTime is causing the problem, you can uninstall it, though it should still work.

What videocard and what Windows version are you running ? Has a Prefs file been generated by CM yet ?

I have no idea why QuickTime should be causing a problem. Maybe it's some weird interpretation of the codecs needed to playback the movie. Pressing Shift while launching CM should "kill" the intro movie and this may alleviate your problem (allowing you to have QuickTime installed and still be able to play CMBO).
