Ok i got me the demo first thing...a 100mb download.

Did not work because of a genral protection error [amazeingly the highest type of problem]

so i read up a little, and found that the full game and the patch cuts all errors down buy half... Or so i thoght.
I tried to download the ISO but as you may know...no luck..

Anyway, there are fixes for the splinter cell demo.

1.make sure you have direct x 9.
2. change some of the code in one of the ini files
3.make sure your graphics card is supported on the box.

So for me 2 things are done correct, my graphics card does not support splinter cell.


On the back of the splinter cell box is listed about 8 graphics cards, however in the "minnimum" specs allowed,

it plainly says "32 meg graphics card"


i have a hercules 64 meg not great but it runs everything i have thrown at it apart from this pics of crap :lol:

You wouldent belive how many people have had the dreaded

Genral Protection Error.

"ubi soft" now say meet the "reccomended" requirments" :evil:

If they had put on the box

we only support these graphics cards

not many people would of bought the game would they, these concludes me to sday what a bunch of tossers,

if you go on the splintercell forum and have a look round you iwll not belive how many people get the genral protection error.

So if i get a new graphics card now fair enuff i can play whatever i want, when doom 3 is out in november the "next generation" will be here, again i will be screwed.

BTW i got the doom3 demo, guess what...im 128 megs of ram to short to play it :lol:

That's at least one good thing about an Xbox. You will be able to play Splinter Cell, Doom 3, Deus Ex 2 etc without having to spend money on upgrades. Get a modchip and it's great for emulation too :evil:
