The sticky about the black screen of death does NOT work. [SIZE=2]I've gone on without this game for far too long. Star Trek Legacy is taking ages to get out, I need something to hold me. I just got my new computer, and my Bridge Commander will not work with it.

Yes, my new computer has all the latest drivers to date.

It installs fine, but when I start the game, watch all the advertisements of the company, watch the opening cinimatic, then it just sits at a black screen and never continues to load.

I have read the entire sticky, it doesn't help what ever I do. I can't even get the game into test mode. I don't have an opportunity to even load the console to get any reports, cuz the game won't even load.

Please, I am desperate for help. Thank you in advance.

PS: I do not have any mods. I just play the regular game.

This is a different BSOD. The BSOD in the sticky refers to one that appears as soon as you click on the icon (ie, no adverts/cinematics etc). You're problem appears specific to a particular part of the program (maybe a scratched disc/mildly corrupted copy or particular bad/missing file). Not sure how to resolve that. There may be people who've had this particular problem and can help. Alternatively, installing the patch and KM may replace some dead files. Otherwise - is the CD still in there?

Yes. The cd is still in there, and there are no scratches :S

What is KM? And How can I install it?

perhaps - but they will be prone to alot of errors with mods and alot of random game crashes ;) even if their "installs" seem ok for now, they will surely have problems in growing numbers as time passes on and they try adding new mods...

by the way, did you ever install BC's 1.1 patch?

Yes it patched fine, that's not the problem.
