Game starts, but won't load
Hi all. I only installed WFTO yesterday, so maybe I'm missing something that's really obvious.
When I tried to play the game, I got through the menus(it was 2 in the morning so I got decreasingly subtle instructions to go to bed from the disembodied voice) with no major problems - it's a bit slow, but that's not weird - and the introductory video at the start of the campaign, but after that nothing loaded.
I tried loading a skirmish map, and the same thing happened. The loading screen comes up, bits of trivia pop up under the loading bar(so it's not frozen), but said bar remains a tiny blob of blue steadfastly refusing to move. I left it there for about an hour, nothing happened.
I tried reinstalling, nothing changed. I have verified the integrity of my game cache, it's fine.
I did see that someone else had this problem, but as far as I'm aware I do not have the same background programmes running that they did. Of course I now cannot find the thread, but they fixed it by doing something to the ports on a filesharing programme. I'm not running one, so I don't think it's the same problem!
I really would like to be able to play this game.
