It seems like your screen doesn't support the default reoslution of 640x480x16 which would make sense I suppose. The way you can solve this is by:
- opening 'regedit'
- go to H_KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Acclaim Entertainment -> Re-Volt -> 1.0
- Change the value "ScreenWidth" to something your screen resolution width. (fx. 1024)
- Change value "ScreenHeight" to something your screen resolution height. (fx. 768)
- Change value "ScreenBpp" to "32" (for the sake of your eyes).
Then try open Re-Volt again. Are you on a 32-bit or a 64-bit system? If you are on a 64-bit you can locate the keys at
H_KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Wow6432Node -> Software -> Acclaim Entertainment -> Re-Volt -> 1.0
at least as far as I recall.
I found the folder, but the only files I could find in there were (default) and Version. No ScreenWidth or ScreenHeight, unless I'm missing some function in regedit (first time running it).
