Whenever i warp, the screen goes totally black...but i can still hear the music..but thats it. A few moments later, Windows comes up with an error message saying the programme has crashed, so i click close and im back to my desktop. I dont wanna reinstall the game every day, but it looks like im gonna have to again.:mad:

when you get the black screen, can you get a console report? if not, try playing in windowed mode...

to get a console report, here's the thread explaining that: http://dynamic.gamespy.com/~bridgecommander/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=17025 to play in windowed mode (which sometimes you cannot get a console report, but in windowed mode, a DOS error window can come up containg the info as to why the game went awry), when loading bc, go to configure - graphics, and under resolution is size (which should say 'full screen', click on that, and it will go to windowed mode)...

Ok, i got the console working. But the problem only occurs when i click on a mission and as it loads. With the console up, i cant click on any tab in the game. So i clicked on a mission..expecting the screen to go black...then i intended to quickly get the console up. But this didnt work. As soon as i clicked on a mission, the whole game was not responding and it shuts itself off after a few seconds. Now, you know i post here 3 or 4 times a day with a new problem each time. As this game is my brothers, i feel that i need to purchase one of my own. But he bought it ages ago and i cant find a store that sells a copy. I dont think anyone here as every endured as much as i have so frequently and i've given up. I'm not going to uninstall, the reinstall the game and the EOL 1.4 patch everyday so i can play it for a few minutes before it crashes. No way.
