Ok first off, the system specs:

Athlon 64 3700+ 1 GB RAM (333 MHz) Nvidia Geforce 6600 LE Sound Blaster Audigy

Ok the problem is, I install BC, and I try to start it up, runs fine as far as the intro movie(s) and such are concerned, but when that's over, either by letting it run or pressing esc, I get the screen with all the buttons/bars and such missing... The only things on the screen are the enterprise diagram and the little galaxy-ish picture on the bottom--the rest is black, and I can't do anything. This happens just the same for the 1.1 patch, and for the KM mod. I was suspecting a 64-bit compatibility issue, but found no documentation on the subject... Either way, anyone have a clue how to fix it? Oh yeah, I also tried running it in compatibility mode (like that ever works :rolleyes: ) in XP mode and nothing changed.

P.S. Just for kicks and giggles, I installed a GUI mod just in case it overwrote something helpful...no change...just the little cinematic sequence instead of the enterprise diagram.

update your graphics drivers and delete the options.cfg file in your bc folder.

uhm, mainmenu.py (?) If you have a GUI mod, i'm sure it will modify mainmenu.py

I have a 64 bit and (although I am having an unrelated problem at the moment) it works fine
