Is there an error log in the Beyond Divinity folder?
Do you have a different optical drive you could try the CD in?
Can you tell if DirectX starts changing the resolution? The progress bar is not very accurate; on my system it usually shows 1/4 loaded for a bit, then 1/3 loaded, then it exits and the intro video starts.
In Windows Explorer, if you browse to the '..\Beyond Divinity\Static
' folder, can you view the intro.mpg
video? Do you have any video filters installed? At least the ReClock DirectShow Filter
needs to be disabled to play the game videos.
