The game closese right when its attempting to launch. Three DOS windows appear, one of them says:

Exit to error: Could not set fullscreen video mode 800x600-32: No video mode large enough for 800x600

Any ideas? Thanks! (I have windows xp-32)

I'm having the same problem, I'd thought I'd bump it up to the front page.

I'll be upgrading my computer soon, but just want to see if I can get it running before then.

well, as i'v not had any problems my frist guess would be your monitor/video dosen't support 800x600 on That refresh rate...not sure what else it can be...

Hi, I recently bought the commander keen complete pack but when I launch it , it goes to a black screen and i have to reset my computer. Cant alt tab or open task manager, nothing works. Iv tried launching it through the desktop icon, clicking complete pack and individual episodes from steam and even tried using dosbox. Through dosbox it says keen doesnt work with dosbox. I bought the x com pack a while back and they all work fine with no need for dosbox. Im running visa home premium 64 bit. How screwed am I?
