I was having problems with this but if you go into the config file and add the line
it seems to fix the problem but you have to play the game in window mode

When modifying the config file it won't let me save. Is there a trick to that?

I was having this problem; the screen kept flickering right from the opening scene. I put the game into compatibility mode for Windows XP SP3 (I'm on Windows 8.1) and it works like a charm now.

If you don't know how to put games into compatibility mode, click on the link above for "Game crashing, freezing or blank screen" - they have the instructions.

Thanks, techpeoples!

Had the same issue. Putting the game in compatibility mode did not help (Win 7), but modifying the config file did, and I can save the progress alright.
