Windows 7: StarWars Republic Commando not even running

StarWars Republic Commando not even running

This is a game that I used to play when I was a kid. I love it! I have lost my CD so I decided buy this game from steam. After I installed the game, when I try to run it, I can see the republic commando start-up but then the game crashes. No error messages or anything. I can not even get to the menu. I have Windows 7 64-bit and my video card is ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670.

Do you have any ideas to how to solve that problem?

The game is old you say? did you try compatibility mode yet? how about updating your audio and video drivers? they could of have gotten corrupted or something.

Hi Kilroy303,

After trying compatibility mode as suggested:
Try Turning BUMP MAPPING in the in-game graphics options to Low and it may fix for you.

From the Main Menu (if you can get in), select Options -> Graphics. Change the Bumpmapping Quality to LOW

Hope this helps
