Just got the JA:BIA via Steam. Installed and started the launcher just fine, but about 3-5 seconds after clicking "Start game" it crashes back to the desktop (usually get a little bit of sound, but no graphics ever display).
I've tried over a dozen combinations of graphical settings, verifying the game cache, running in various compatibility modes, and deleting and re-installing and I still can't get the game to start.
Running Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit), Nvidia 560Ti graphics card displaying on 2 monitors. Video drivers current.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Unfortunately I also one to the long list of users with this type of issue.
I've tried, as he has done hundreds of combinations Damaleon.

For me it ended up being a corrupted video codec.
Go to the install directory find the intro/ending movies (not at home right now and don't remember the names) and move them to the desktop or some temp folder outside of the install directory.
After you've moved the movies, try starting the game. If you get to the in-game menu, you probably have the same codec issue. I found a program that let me fix it, and once I get home I'll add the name of it. Hopefully this works for you.
I used a program called "CodecTweakTool" to fix it. Once that was done, I could put the movie files back.
