I think I ask this here Question about flight commander

Has anybody had problems actually flying in the game I get the game to start and I'm in the ceberus screen and I select load campaign and then fly. the game does not crash but does something very wierd I can only see about one line of the game and its at the top of the screen, heres the kicker the line it shows at the top is actually the bottem of the cockpit. very strange I have emailed the creator and am waiting a response. I have xp if your wondering and have tried the different compatability modes to no avail. I also have 256mbs of ddr, s3 twister video card with 16 mbs and an amd athlon 4 1500xp mobile processer. Its a compaq laptop.
