Alright, i just got the game out of the Humble Bundle and Activated it on Steam

Whenever i load up the game the Main Menu fades to white instantly, i am not going to explain it more, just look yourself here:

Ah this sounds/looks familiar, just can't remember the issue...

One thing to try is to disable the videos and especially menu videos. Perhaps even go to Config\options.txt and scroll to the bottom and check no video related options are enabled. This might be a WMV issue and our videos cause some weird behavior...

Well, i noticed aswell:
After i pressed the Quit button the Explorere Crashed (Happend every time)

and i read something about installing libtxc_dxtn - althought i have no idea how to do that

i will try what you suggested and tell what happens

EDIT:
No it did not work, neither turning it off in the Config Tool, nor it worked changing it in the options.txt

One thing to try is to re-download the game. This has solved at least one similar issue (here).

Fantastic. I guess that's the main solution to this, even if it sounds a bit weird. 8)

I think you would have to re download the game.
