error from recent steam purchase.

i downloaded everything from steam and when i try to run it; i get a black screen and another window saying ‘failure to initialize 3d engine’

what can i do to fix this?

Have you got the latest drivers for your video card? If so try deleting:
\my documents\my games\gratuitous space battles
then re-running the game.

cliff, thank you for the quick reply…the game started!

ps. keep up the indy spirit! you rock!
