i sent in a support email, but i was curious if anyone else had this problem. the character and certain objects have a black blocky outline, and when i move it sort of trails till the whole screen is black. tried to enclose a pic.
Looks like the problem I have on my modern PC with Direct3D acceleration-that is, before the game crashes later on in the tutorial..
I don't know if the problem is Vista or NVIDIA's drivers in my case, but given the latter's track record with older games (like Crimson Skies and garbled text), that's what I'm going to blame.
Are you using an NVIDIA card as well?
