I know I've fired up a thread that is a year and one-half old, but that's what happens when your stuck I guess.
Well, I successfully installed the game. There's 2 ways of starting the game:
1) I open the cd drive and close it again. When the menu pops up I click on 'play'. Screen goes black and the desktop comes back on. When ever I click the game on the taskbar the screen will go black & then to the Desktop again. I have to go to the Task Manager to close it manually.
2) I click to start the game from my Start Menu. Screen goes black and then it returns to the desktop. And same as before: When ever I click the game on the taskbar the screen will go black & then to the Desktop again. I have to go to the Task Manager to close it manually.
I've just Fdisk'ed my PC (Custom built) so there's no programs on it that should be conflicting. I've ran Msconfig to prevent programs from running unnecessarily in the background apon boot up. I've dumpped *.tmp files and ran Defrag & Err checking (Scandisk for Win XP) & Disk Cleanup.
I'm trying to play Tropico (original). Where do you find the Version?
I'm not trying to play with an Expansion Pack just the original game itself.
I've tried the only patch I could find and that's the latest one at God Games website. (www.godgames.com
It's the Tropico Update v1.07.
