EA Sports, "It's in the Glitch"
EA Games, "Glitch Everything"

I know they're fun games but you'll just have to learn to deal with the bugs. I suggest you look for a patch, but don't expect too much from it.

Sounds like you might be crashing while the intro video is trying to play.

If so, find your TW2005 shortcut on your desktop and/or taskbar. Right-click on the shortcut and select "Properties". Click on the very end of:

"C:\Program Files\EA SPORTS\Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 2005\Bin\TW2005.exe"

**Assuming you installed to the C: drive**

Then add a space after the ", then type:

/NOINTRO

Your Target should now read:

"C:\Program Files\EA SPORTS\Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 2005\Bin\TW2005.exe" /NOINTRO

Then click OK.

Try to launch the game again.

I have a 6800 Ultra and have not seen your particular issue once in alpha/beta testing with the above mentioned drivers and in the release version this issue has not existed.

Hope this helps. If not, I recommend a complete uninstall/reinstall because the game has been rock-solid for me with the 6800GT I had before I traded in for the 6800 Ultra.

While I realize you may have had a bad experience with EA products, I find that your comments are unnecessarily inflammatory and certainly of no help to the user asking for help.

I've also had no problems with the game. It's quite fun even if it's a golf game. They do some break dance moves after getting a hole.

By any chance have you installed the DirectX9.0 SDK? I had this exact problem before, and this was because i was running DX in debug mode, instead of retail mode.
