I am unable to play the demo. I can not get the game to start, every time I do I get the "Failed to initialize the engine" error. I have now re-installed the current drivers for my graphics card, un-installed and re-installed the game then re-installed the gdx drivers again and I'm still getting the same error.

Searching the internet for answers hasn't yielded anything better than I already done, my system: -

Kind of glad this had a demo or I would have bought a useless game I can't play otherwise, unless someone here has an answer I haven't found elsewhere!

Did you read the FAQ and the other thread with exactly the same name on the front page at the top?

Nope didn't see although I don't know how it managed to miss my search! I certainly didn't see it on the first 4 or 5 pages that's for sure!

Too many troll threads to search through!

Ignore this thread and post in the other one linked above if you have a similar issue!
