After a fresh install of Windows XP, I installed Shellshock and played it - it worked fine. Now when I try to run the game, I get sound during the intro sequence, but from the main menu onwards, nothing. I'm running a retro SigmaTel, which worked fine before, my drivers are up to date and I dont remember doing anything to the soundcard that might have messed it up.
Also I think its appalling how Eidos bigwigs expect one or two people to deal with complaints and problems posted in some of these forums. Just because you've released a game a while ago doesnt mean you can sweep it under the carpet when there are numerous people screaming for some kind of patch or bug fix that would make what is a mediocre game, better.
