    Commandos: BEL on Windows XP

    Hello,

    I have a problem with running Commandos: BEL on my computer
    Installing is fine, no problems there, but when i start comandos.exe
    i see the commandos logo for a split second, then the screen goes black, and
    i hear the music from the video's but i dont SEE the video's..
    after the music is over, the screen just stays black, and there is nothing i can do but to press the windows key and rightclick commandos and exit it..
    I think the problem is, like many have, windows XP..
    I have tried every patch (with a working link) on this forum already, none of them work
    I also tried the compatibility thing, doesnt work as well any other suggestions?

    thanks in advance

    I've had BEL running fine on my pc. Have you tried updating your video card drivers? It may be that the problem lies there.

    Updated drivers, but it still doesnt work

    Edit:
    On a sidenote, if i start the game without the cd, i get in the menu immediately, but to actually play the game i need the cd, and then when a movie start it doesnt work again, so its definetely the movies which are giving me problems

    Its fixed, kinda,
    i just play without the cd, and when the game asks me to insert the disc i dont, and play the game without movies, guess that will have to do
