Interesting problem.

After you installed CMBO and launched the game, did you get to a screen asking what screen preferences you want? "3D DirectX Test:..."

If so, which resolution did you select?

Which version of DirectX are you running? (Start - Run - DxDiag)

If you did not receive the "3D DirectX Test" screen, go to your CMBO directory and delete the "Combat Mission Bynd Ovr Prefs" 1k file (if it exists). Then try re-loading CMBO.

FWIW - I couldn't get CMBO to run after installing the 44.03 drivers over DirectX 9. Had to finally go back to the drivers before. Had a black screen, got ask about what screen res I wanted, and that's all the further it would go. Finally gave up, after trying some fixes listed here, and went back one generation of drivers.

prefs file doesn't exist. Also it wouldn't work before i installed the new drivers or directx 9. I never get to the resolution screen it goes black and nothing happens.Wondering if one of the updates i got from windows would be the cuase.
