Welcome to the forums magnator

Few questions to help us help you:
- how are you running GTB (Steam, stand alone, graphics, configuration, etc)
- are there any hints with the debug files (\GratuitousTankBattles\debug)
Wisdom is something you generally obtain around three seconds after you needed it the most

Make sure you have the latest drivers for your video card, and that you are running on a monitor with a screen height of at least 768 pixels.

OK I think I get it.
I run the game on Steam. Unfortunately I couldn't find debug files.
But I figure out the problem.
When I play the game with my external monitor (1920x1080) which is set as primary, the game works. After unplug the monitor, my laptop monitor is 1366x768, the game gives that error. I think it is because of the game settings.
I hope you solve this problem soon, cuz I cannot always use my external screen :)
