One of my favourite games is Rally Championship by Magnetic Fields/Europress. It (like International Rally Championship, which I found a workaround to install for here: International Rally Championship (Magnetic Fields/Europress) - how to install if setup.exe won't work) has it's own installer built into the game executable on the CD-ROM.
Basically, on my PC (see my signature), when I run the ral.exe installer/game on the CD-ROM, it launches a black screen and nothing happens! No crash, no error, looking in Task Manager it looks like it's happily running (i.e. no "Not responding" message), so I'm a bit stuck!
I tried a manual install (copying the install folders from my old XP machine), but the game still launches a silent black window.
I'm not sure if this is down to my PC configuration, or graphics card/driver (I did have issues with it in the past on my old 7800GS+ card with newer drivers). A lot of 1999-2001 games crash randomly for me (currently) but this RC2000 issue is unique!
Does anyone else have a similar 64bit Win8.1 setup with Nvidia graphics (latest driver, even if your card is different)? Please let me know your findings!
