evening gents, I've just installed my game of the year version of DOW and all of the letters / text in menus and ingame just show up as either random text objects or wont show up at all. Tried patching but no avail. So basically, what the bloody hell? never had this sort of trouble with the DoW demo :/

do you have a ati graphics card at all? the read me says that ati cards sometimes distort text etc. not sure how to fix, try getting the most up to date drivers for the graphics card, ati or not.

That is one fucked up problem :lol: - I think your best bet would be the Relic Forums. As they made the game with THQ, they are more likely to be able to help you than we are.
