Hi all, I seem to be having a problem with a copy of Xcom I acquired. One of m firends gave me this copy and he managed to get it working on XP simply by installing and running it. However, when I do this I get a black screen on start up, along with soud for about a minute before i crashes on me. Does anyone know why this is?

XcomUtil 9.7 includes a patch for Vista and Win7 that fixes this.
Combat is very simple, there is a first place and second place, second place is laying face down in the mud, sometimes, so is first place.

Cheers BladeFireLight. Had the same problem as OP and the linked patch solved it.
