1. The game does not run! I get an error: cannot initialize 3d hardware, or something like that.

It's a hardware compatibility error:
- Make sure you have the latest DirectX drivers
- Try to run the game in window-mode
- Change the Windows desktop colors from 32-bit to 16-bit
- Try to change some Soldat Config settings (turn off Antialiasing, check 16-bit)
- Install the latest or different video drivers
- Try changing the windows desktop resolution and bit-rate
- Try turning down or up the graphics hardware acceleration (My Computer/Properties/Performance/Graphics)
- Try updating your motherboard drivers
- Check also this this topic on the forum - 3d initialization problem
- If you have Windows NT/2000 install the latest service pack

I know you didn't get an error, but try to do those stuff, it might work.

Sounds strange.
What graphic card and processor do you have?

Ive tried all that in that list, even taking of the beginning intro. Nothing seems to work, its so strange. Its hardly like Soldat is graphic intensive!

Does nobody actually know how to solve this then?
