I didn't make it!
by mistake i changed my resolution from 1920 x 1080 to 1600 x 1200 in forces of corruption and it black screened on me, although i still have audio. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and I made an attempt at opening the config file in notepad and used the ctrl-f search tool to see if I could track down the resolution to reset it but i couldnt find it :( any suggestions people? thanks
If you run the safemode version of the game it should boot up in 800x600 or 640x480 which all monitors support. I've got gold edition so it puts a link to safe mode in the start menu. If there isn't one, the right click on the link to the game and go to properties, where the target is, make it look like this: Empire at War\GameData\sweaw.exe" SAFEMODE That should get it going, then all you need to do it boot up the game, quit, and when you load it up in normal mode it will still be on the safemode resolution. You can change it and continue on. Hope that helps.
