Q When starting the game, the music doesn't start, and the screen goes black.
Your graphics card may not be able to handle the effects you have enabled in the config. This may also occur if your drivers are not up to date, particularly in ATI Radeon cards.
Please try the following:
1. In the Graphics tab of the config utility, uncheck the "Use hardware vertex shaders (v1.1)" box.
2. On the same tab, uncheck the "32-bit backbuffer/texture" box.
3. Please make sure your video card drivers are up to date.

Instead of adding the exes to the ffddshow esclusion try to set the ffdshow to not manage the MPEg1 file format. I really think that the problem is caused by the ffdshow mpeg1 management. Just try and let's know..it's a suggestion
Posted here for sharing: I had this problem also. I tried a lot of different settings, reinstall, update drivers, change the ffdshow thingy, etc but with no luck. Detailed problem: Black screen but got sound. Have to press reset button to restart pc if use fullscreen.(Managed to solve this problem by using windowed) Using XP SP3 Home. Graphics driver does not support vertex shader(but I've turn it off in settings)
I'm not sure if it's SP3's problem since I did not uninstall it and I don't really trust my graphics driver. But rather I gave up and try install it on my housemate's pc which she rarely use and it works. She still have XP SP2 but her pc specs are also much much higher.
