Question about CDV Software Codename: PANZERS Phase One

Stencil Depth Format

Whenever I go to launch Codename Panzers: Phase One, the game begins to load, but right when it is about to access the Main Menu, It says something about "S VIEWPORT:: StencilDepthFormat not found" or something like that.

I installed panzers phase 1 on win7. all installation was trouble free but when i try and start the game i'm asked to reboot to finish installation but when i reboot and then try to launch the game...

Have you tried to uninstall and reinstall the program?
is your windows 7 a 64bit or 32bit?
if 64bit, maybe the program is not compatible with win7 64bit.
try this one.
  1. right click the shortcut link of panzer.
  2. on the menu choose Properties.
  3. then click the Compatibility Tab.
  4. On the Compatibility Mode >>>> Check the Box that Says " Run this program in compatibility mode for: "
  5. Choose the compatibility you want in the drop download list ( I Suggest you choose Windows XP SP2 )
  6. then click apply then Ok.
  7. Run the game.
Hope it helps.
