SO whenever i start the game, it does that mandatory DX test im assuming, which i have DX9.....but it just sits at a black screen forever and doesnt do anything
slightly frustrating because changing options doesnt work and i dont think it matter because its running a test on your syste. not quite sure why it happens but i have to CTRL ALT DEL out of there, not end the process though, just to get back to the screen, then when i hit cancel it says "unable to read configuration file - exiting". i have the newest omega drivers for my Radeon IGP 320m, AMD Athlon 2500+, 512DDR RAM, 60 gig HDD, onboard sound (yes its a laptop) should i just re-apply the config file or what, any help would be great, thanks

In Divinity, some Radeon systems would give a black screen during the Direct3D test, but the game itself worked fine. As far as I know, that should not be a problem with the Beyond Divinity demo (I have a Radeon 9600 XP now and didn't have any problems). Did you try skipping the test? Did you shut down all non-essential programs, especially anti-virus, before installing the demo? If there was a problem during the install an un-install / re-install should help.

There's no "skip test" button if I click the "Cancel" button it says "Unable to read configuration file- exiting"

Da ist kein "Skip test" button nur "abbrechen" und "testen" bei abbrechen kommt "Unable to read configuration file- exiting" ???

For clearification : or ?

Also you can use the German Forum area as well.
