Lightbulb How I made my game run properly just configuring my Catalyst

Hi guys.

I bought this game at last hollyday sale and played it well at my notebook. But yesterday I tried to play it on my desktop (Win7/64x with ATI HD4780) and all I got was a white screen and a crash dialog.

I tried all the solutions I found in the internet, including:
- run the game and/or Steam as administrator
- all combinations of compatilibities configurations
- verify game files/reinstall the game
- download mods, game files and cracks
- edit game files to change maximum resolution

None of these seems to work, but I realised that the problem is with ATI driver and OpenGL. Some foruns say to revert your driver to an older version, but I play other games and I wouldn't do that just because of a single game. Then I tried to look inside Catalyst options for something that might help me. So I found this: in the Gaming menu, under 3D application settings, there is an OpenGL triple buffering option. I enabled it and the game worked perfectly! Whithout flicks or fast/slowmotion.

No compatibilities options enabled, no need to run as administrator, no need to edit any game file or download anything besides original Steam game.

Thanks for trying to help, but it doesn't work for me. I "found" another solution too, but it only worked for two days (play offline), then stopped working. I can not explain, and apparently Steam doesn't care at all.

I had this problem as well, lucky enough I bought the game on the Steam sale out of being lazy to look for my CD, and as I got the white screen crash as well, I decided to go look for my CD anyway.

Short story, I found the CD, installed it and started the game thinking it might start a white screen and crash, apparently not, the game started without fail straight out of the box so to say.

I think the problem with Steams version of the game is that its the US version of the game, the one I have is UK as I bought it several years ago via Amazon in the UK.

so the issue here, at least in my case was not GPU based but version based.

EDIT:
OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate
GPU: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD6950
Compatibility settings on Executional: "none" didnt need to set any.
Steam in game overlay works?: yes
