I have had the exact same issue. When the game loads, either from the client or browser, it loads the EarthEternal.car loading screen for a split second then gray screen. What I didnt see was the error generated by that error. I dont have the error screen here, but is generates from the spark.exe file.

Odd thing, as I reported before, the game runs fine on my acer laptop mini with a simular O/S and memory but not on my two desktops. It doesnt appear to be browser related as my unfamiliarity with the client program doesnt allow me to understand if it uses a "browser" to run.

Again, broken beta, and developemental stage, I'm glad its wortking at all.

The devs are currently working on a solution for this. In the meantime there are a few things you can try, but none of them are guaranteed to work.

1. Download and install DirectX SDK (latest).
2. Make sure your graphics drivers are up to date.
3. Try disabling your antivirus and firewall.
4. Make sure EE isn't being blocked by DEP (Data Execution Prevention). This can be found by typing "advanced system settings" into your Windows run/search bar (start menu). Go to the Advanced tab. Click on Performance Settings. Go to the Data Execution Prevention tab. Select "Turn on DEP for ESSENTIAL Windows programs and services only"

Glad to see I'm not the only one. I'd given up trying for a bit - and to focus on other projects.

Will have to give these fixes a go - I've tried about half the list with no luck.

According to Piggy, the common element among all the players with grey screen of death problems is they all have 128MB graphics solutions. The minimum requirement is 256MB, so chances are there won't be a fix if it's caused by not having enough video memory.

Well, the game did go through a graphic re-haul, and a lot of the older models have been smoothed out (game has a much higher polygon count now).
