...so get the demo, install and play it, if it works to your satisfaction buy it.http://www.fileshack.com/file.x/11034/M ... borne+Demo
Thank you! I didn't know that there was a demo--doh!
DL'd the demo and after almost giving up on it, I set the resolution back down to 800x600 and checked "vertical frame sync (or something like that) and everything worked fine. I enjoyed the demo and I'm going to buy the game.
BTW...for anyone reading this...don't try to get anything useful by way of support from Electronic Arts. Their response team..even after my question was bumped up a level...can't read English and don't know anything about computers or their own games. If it were a randomly generated computer response that I got over and over again, through five email exchanges, I might have gotten something more useful than I did.
