Game exits immediatly after starting


#1

When I start the game (DEMO only) it shows a window entry in the taskbar for a very short moment and then exits without giving a notice or message.

This could possibly be sound card related. Does your PC not have a sound card?

That’s it. Thanks.

My sound card is not set up.

I’ll try Democracy 2 on my laptop then.
