imran, when you come on a game forum and ask a bunch of guys how to fix your computer you're gonna get a bunch of answers. We are not tech support! We're only offering what we know. Some of it is pure crap, some of it's silly, some of it may work. I think asking if it's a warez game is legit so don't take offense, he's only trying to help.

Where exactly did he say or acted like he took offense of that?

Sounds to me like: look man, i bought it ok??!!

Anyway, who cares? If he didn't take offense then no harm done. If he did, I was just letting him know that he wasn't being attacked.

No need to get angry, so chill.
We indeed always try to help but in this case there are so many things that can be a problem.

Things you can try:

- Check for latest drivers for your gfx card and sound card.
- Install the latest DirectX.
- Get the patch for Commandos2. (Click here (http://ftp.eidos.com/pub/patches/commandos2/InternationalPatch.exe).)
- Disable joysticks/gamepads if you have any.
- Disable Anti-virus software if you have any.

That doesn't help, post the results of the dxdiag tool. Maybe we can figure something out from there.

hold on....i just thought of something ( i think it was for Commandos 2)

you can download somewhere a couple of videos that just "skip" the intro, that might or might not help :S

and i missed the blue screen thingie.....that sounds like a wonderfull OS problem.

X-Com gave some excellent advice........try that :D

Hey, that is how Tech Support works too. :)

Seriously if nothing that XCOM works, go to our support page and submit your problem.

With most games you can remove the intro videos by renaming or removing the videofile. Now all you need is someone who knows which file is the intro video.

c:\commandos2\data\wofip\DATAEI.pop is the eidos intro movie, c:\commandos2\data\wofip\.DTAARO.pop is that from Pyro,
c:\commandos2\data\wofip\DATAE00.pop is the other intro movie
