When i press New Game, theres a black screen

As title says. when i open the game, i can select new game, options and all of that stuff. But when i press new game, its just a black screen. the only sound i get is just that beep sound you get when you go through speech and all that. Ive tried reextracting the game a bunch of times, the DEP fix, ran in admin mode. Btw im on windows and i got the download from the official site. any suggestions?

It should run fine. It’s supposed to be dark at the beginning of the game because you’re in a dream sequence. The first thing you actually see besides the text boxes is a large pixelated image of a Gengar.
