I got Episode 1 last month. Loved it, was enthusiastic about it. I thought to myself: Well, since I have some money and some time before Episode 2 comes out, I may as well go about getting that compy upgrade I've been wanting for a few months.
So I did. New Video Card with Widescreen support, new monitor. All drivers and such installed.
And then, tragedy strikes.
I tried playing SBCG4AP, but the same thing kept happening - every time I tried setting the resolution to widescreen, the computer would reboot without a word. EVERY TIME. The game would still work, just not in widescreen, so I thought to myself: "All right, that's annoying as hell, but I can still play it and it's not like there aren't a host of other games I can play that don't have Widescreen support at all, so I guess it's not a huge deal," and I decided to wait for Episode 2.
So Episode 2 hits today, and I was jubilant. I Downloaded it gleefully and when I got home from work, tried to boot it up and play it. Unfortunately, as was the case with Episode 1, I can't change the resolution without the game rebooting the entire computer. So I decided "Screw it, I'll just try playing it, like I did for Episode 1."
The game boots up, cuts to the Lappy, and Strong Bad begins saying: "I don't know what I've bee--"
EVERY DARN TIME.
I don't know what in god's name is causing this, nor do I have any idea why SBCG4AP and it ALONE, among the nearly dozen and a half games I have installed, is suffering this weird error, but I do know that the game for me is currently 100% unplayable due to whatever is causing this. If anyone has any idea what can cause this thing, or what I can do to fix it, I beg of you, help me. :(
I've already tried screwing with the display settings, updating the drivers, and so on, with no luck thus far.
