Splinter cell pc, the troubles...

Recommended Posts

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.

I read up like crazy...

 

Ineed the following to bring me back up to date...

 

Another 256 ram stick :lol:

 

and a £150 nivad graphics card...

 

 

when doom 3 come out that wont even play it!!

 

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:
