I have a game issue

I'm trying to play Mercenaries 2 Wolrd in Flames and it says Mercenaries 2 World in Flames is unable to continue due to an error initializing your graphics hardware. I know my hardware is plenty powerful enough to run the game and I can't find any thing online that will fix it so I am hoping someone can give me some ideas.

On the PC? Didn't realize it got a PC release, thought it was Consoles only...

I know this isn't the exact thing, but perhaps there's some link... I remember there being some issue with the servers for the game being turned off (remember? It has co-op...) which was required to initialize the game on consoles and causing issues where the game just wouldn't work unless you also played some other game by the same people.

Going completely off topic here... (sorry) But any chance you know if there's a modding community for the game? (Actually, that might be a lead...)

Not that I know of, all of the stuff I've found that might help is on Pandemic forums but that is shut down. I didn't exactly pay for the game, I already brought it once, so its not a huge loss if I can't get it to work.

Ooo... Yea, I'm thinking that might be the reason... Though, have you applied the 1.1 patch? This may have it: http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Mercenaries_2:_World_in_Flames
