I have a friend who has the demo where the screen flickers in fullscreen and doesnt show at all in windowed mode. It also crashes when he tries to create a world.

laptop spcs
2.0ghz proc
3gb ram
ati x1200 graphics
windows 7 64 bit

Things we have tried
monitor sync on and off
open as administrator
compatability mode xp and nt
change hardware cursor
change refresh rate
change resolution
update graphics driver
reinstall graphics driver
set game to lowest settings
re-downloaded demo

if you have any ideas or can help I would certainly appreciate it

You might as well try updating with the latest openAL drivers here (http://connect.creativelabs.com/openal/Downloads/oalinst.zip). You want openAL32.dll and wrap_oal.dll

I believe that exe is just an installer that installs the latest OpenAL files. What Bluddy is talking about is wherever it installs those, copy openAL32.dll and wrap_oal.dll from there into the DC directory.
