I get this error after screen flashes for like 5 minutes and if I don't get that and the game works it won't go to 1920x1080. Help! :confused:

I should have read this before I posted my problem, as I have all of the same symptoms you do.

Tried redownloading the game (already verified integrity of game cache, didn't work) and still nothing. Google isn't helping much either.

There have been issues where if you are not running the game at the same resolution as your desktop settings, problems may occur!

The resolution must be set in the RO ini. file or whatever its called.

Might help, might not.

If you have dual screens then press alt-enter when the flashing starts and it will take you to windowed mode. Make sure you set the resolution back to your desired size then check the fullscreen box and OK, and it should then work. If not, if you've not tried the advice offered in the error message then try it - browse to your RO system folder (by default C:\program files\steam\steamapps\common\redorchestra\system) and delete the redorchestra.ini file (or ro file with a cog on the icon). This resets things to default. Start the game again (or if that fails, verify the cache) and see if the problem persists.

I do have duel moniters, although I'm not sure if this works, as doing nothing has worked for me.

In the campaign I've done the first mission -- the training -- The first 'actual' mission I just get a black screen, after the sorta 'video' sequence
