Stardock's offices will be closed in observance of the holiday season from December 19th until January 5th, 2015.
During this time there will be a delay in answering support tickets, so we ask for your patience during the holiday period. While we will keep tabs on the tickets during the break, we will respond to them as quickly as possible upon our return.
On behalf of the Stardock staff we wish you a happy holiday season and look forward to the new year!
I'd try changing your resolution to 1024x768 and make sure you're running with 32bit color mode and then try.
An ATI 9000 (ThinkPad T40) was my demo machine for the game when I went out to the game mags so it should be fine.
