I got past the activation, that went fine, booted up the game, all was good.
Then, I exited the game, and later tried to start it up again by pressing the big Launch button, but nothing happens.
Checked my task manager, the exe is running somewhere in the background. I try again, and the same thing happens, but this time I have 2 of them running, neither of them doing anything...I'm just sat at the desktop. I force both to close, and try again... but yeah you get the story.
The only time I got it to work again, was to delete the prefs.prop and the save games. And of course when I wanted to start the game again later, it happened again. Even after restarting the PC it doesn't work.... and I don't want to keep deleting my save games just to try and get it working :(
Is there a fix for this at all? I haven't seen anyone else with this problem however.
edit: just tried and tried again, it's now apparent that even deleting those files don't have any effect anymore.
