Default Re: Fatal error : Cannot set display mode

Please try doing the following:
- Go to your steam library, right click "Serious Sam 3: BFE"
Click Properties -> Local Files -> Verify Integrity of Game Cache

When that is done, and the problem persists - make sure you have drivers for your graphics card that are up to date.

Why is your Steam folder named Serious Sam 3? And why is the build version of your copy dated back in November of 2011?

Hmm.

I just assumed that they bought SS3 and installed Steam with it (possibly retail?) and put it in it's own folder.

Yep, smells suspicious. Unless he really wants to run Steam in offline mode all the time and doesn't want any game updates, and even then I think Steam would prompt to update on first launch.

The only help you're getting is the advice to update your game. If it's legit, you should have no problems doing that. If the people here are right and you have a pirated copy, then you're SOL and you should just buy the game.
