Hi. I installed TOB yesterday, but when running the game I have had issues with the screen going blank and a "signal not in range" error.

If I unplug the monitor and reconnect, I can get the game picture on screen but then there are issues with the pointer, as you cannot click directly on any of the options and can only select by positioning the pointer a way off to the right of the options button.

This also has an effect on gameplay as I cannot select units without trying to guess where the pointer should be - please help!

    Detailed description: When the game first runs all I see is a black screen with "signal not in range". This can be overcome by disconnecting/reconnecting the monitor. The next issue is the mouse pointer, as it does not accurately point at the game options. Sometimes I have to point it a centimetre or two away from the option I am trying to select before it "lights up" as being selected. The same issue is during gameplay as you cannot click accurately on units.

    Reproduction Steps:
    - not sure what this relates to?

    Screenshot: Unable to attach, but the above description is self explanatory.

    Details of any solutions that have already been attempted: Tried reinstalling directX, updating drivers and repairing vcredist_x64 and vcredist_x86 files.

    Please attach DxDiag - attached
