I just received my new computer. The first thing I did was install STBC on it when I tried to play it ( Without mods) it gave me that black screen with the cursor on it. What do I do?

Make sure your graphic drivers are up to date. Furthermore, do this:

  • right click on stbc.exe and choose Properties
  • go to Compatibility tab
  • enable Compatiblity mode and set it for Windows XP (Service Pack 2) or Windows 98 / Windows Me (leave this option as the last possible one)
  • disable Desktop Composition
  • enable running with Administrative priviledge level
  • click OK and try running the game

Don't forget to patch it, if you still haven't.

It also tends to help in general if you don't install it to Program Files.
