Trying the demo, but get "error" message.
« on: January 26, 2013, 12:55:22 AM »
I installed the demo, and when I click to open the program I get a screen that says "bridge it encountered an error while starting. This could be caused by invalid graphics settings or incompatibility with your software....etc"

Im running windows 7 64 bit, I have a 6 core amd processor 8 gigs of ram and a Radeon 7700 HD graphics card (more than powerful enough). Im running a 720 resolution. Any ideas? I reaaally want to try this game out and will probably buy it, if it plays as good as it looks. I build bridges for a living on the construction side and this game would be right up my alley. Thanks!

I think the problem is the minimum resolution is 1024x768 which will not run on a 720 resolution screen.  We are actually working on an update right now which will add widescreen support and will support your screen resolution.  In the meantime try changing the options file to windowed mode and see if that helps:
