# 1 new player, can't connect
02-10-2010, 02:23 AM
tried the search button, but i couldn't find this problem. i got the free demo from a promo at a restaurant, installed the game, but when i try to start it all i get is the loading screen with no graphics, and the start button doesn't work. the status bar keeps saying connecting but it doesn't do anything.

here's my dxdiag

(after i posted i changed my mind about playing. so nvm.)

Your system is waaaay under minimum spec for this game.

Try lowering all yoru graphics to minimum, and try. Failing that, go into options, on your launcher, and click safe mode, then OK. Then try it.

If that doesnt work, then you'll need a new system.
