OK, so this problem is all over the internet, but everyone getting it with the LATER episodes. I tried moving the prefs.prof from Telltale Games to the game folder in Steam which contains WalkingDead101.exe However I suspect this only works on later episodes, where the pref.prof was set to a working state for the first episode. I have fresh installed Win7 64, latest 13-12_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql.exe and Steam. I tried choosing compatability settings and only when I ticked every box did I get anything other than black screen (a 640x480x256 with error box saying failed to initialize d3d). When I get the black screen I can hear birds tweeting and if i move the mouse around I sometimes hear as if it is going over some menu options, so I am convinced it is just a resolution problem. If the prefs.prof was in plain text it would be simplicity to fix. Are there any launch options where I can force the game to open in a window?
