I tried launching the game after installing it a few hours ago.The first time, it opened, but there was no text, so I couldn't do anything, then everything froze, the screen went black for 2 seconds, then when i could see the screen again, i had a notification that said "Display driver crashed and has recovered" or something like that, and the program wasn't responding so i closed it. the next few times were almost the same, except now the menu didn't even appear, and the screen just turned black as soon as i ran the program.

Seems to be a graphic card driver problem. Update it.

Otherwise, which FO version and OS?

If it's the 4.5 release (1 year old), try instead the latest build ->

Windows : viewtopic.php?p=85223#p85223
Mac : viewtopic.php?p=85224#p85224

In a sense it is, as that was the last official release. There have been many test builds and such since then. They are in the process of finalizing the next release. If they hurry, they might beat one year!

The chances for that are nil. 0.4.5 came out on Sept 1st, and the deadline for the creation of the release branch (Sept 4th) is already past the year mark...

Ah, I knew it was sometime in September. Thought it was a bit later.
