In Windows Explorer, you can browse to the '..\Beyond Divinity\Static' folder to view the 'intro.mpg' video. Rename that file and the game will skip playing it on startup. That may not help (it did in a couple cases of a crash after the video: see here), but it will at least remove a step each time you try the game.

Someone else had a problem with the game automatically minimizing during the intro movie and crashing if they tried to maximize it (BattleFields N00b ?), which was fixed by a Windows patch for XP.

A few people with problems on startup could avoid it by setting their desktop resolution and the game resolution to be the same.

Are you shutting down all non-essential programs (especially anti-virus) before starting the game?

There may be some things you have not tried yet in the topic below, as well.

yet another "Game simply won't start!"-thread


With the 1.49 patch installed, you shouldn't need the DVD at all. There were no changes to BD with the download version, so I don't think getting it from GoG would help, unless there was a scratch on the DVD or something, and the install program did not report an error in some file.
The topic Crash on start up contains a file verification method you could try.

Well I finally got it to work, I even bought a second copy at gog.com just to find out you where right that it wasn't the CD.

When I changed my screen colour from 32bit colours to 16bit colours, it all works fine.

So thanks for your support to all my whining. \:\)

Game works great now, and it's really fun.

Glad you got it working and thanks for the update.

I never would have guessed the desktop colour depth would cause such a problem with certain compatibility settings. Hopefully this will help if anyone else runs into similar issues.

Are you posting drunk, or is someone else using your account/computer?

The Divine Divinity forums would probable be a better place to look for the patch than Beyand Divinity, or if you go to Larian's homepage and click on Support, there are separate pages for each of their games.
