View Full Version : Game hangs at the beginning

06-04-2010, 10:05 AM
I can launch the game with no problem and navigate the main menu, but when I start a new game (any scenario or free play), nothing happens. The hour glass during the loading screen animates nicely and loading is completed, after which I only get a static picture of a port. I can see and move the cutlass cursor, but nothing happens no matter where I click or what key I press. I'm using Windows XP and ATI Radeon 4850. Any ideas how to fix this?

Sorry, never had this kind of problem even on my older PC wih WinXP. Maybe you should update graphics drivers, verify game cache or just re-download it.

Disabling steam community overlay in steam settings solved this for me.

I have the exact same problem. I tried reloading it, verified the cache, still nothing. :o

I have Windows Vista and a Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT.

Any ideas anyone?

After posting this, my friend notified me that he had a copy of Port Royale 1 that I should borrow. I installed the game, and now part 2 works..

Since the games are so similar the 2nd must have used a file from the 1st instead of whichever one was corrupt. Just a guess.
