So I bought Evil Genius, and I had the crazy idea that perhaps I'd actually like to play it instead of just letting it take up space on my hard drive. I know, crazy.

Anyhow, when I launch the game the loading screen comes up and then... nothing. The progress bar doesn't move and eventually (sometimes sooner rather than later) the entire system freezes. I have to hit the good ol' reset button to proceed.

Google is somewhat less than revealing on this issue as most results for "evil genius freezes" are about Steve Jobs. :thumbsup:

I've e-mailed the support people at the company where I purchased the game but have yet to receive a reply.

Funny thing is, it works perfectly on my office computer. I can't fathom why it won't on my home computer since my home computer is superior in most respects to my office computer.

Anyone have any suggestions?
