I've had few problems with running this game. My younger brother got it for Christmas and it doesn't work as it should. What a shame.
At first it crashed into a blue screen. I resolved this by disabling sunbelt firewall.
Then the game launched but the game window border was shown and it flickered black and white very fast. I disabled WindowBlinds.
Now the game starts fullscreen. The music is playing but the screen is black. I can navigate through menu (I think so) because I can hear the sounds when I use keyboard arrows.
I've got latest dx9 and nvidia drivers.
Dual Core 3GHz
I installed the August 2009 dx SDK and still nothing. Need help!
I got the same problem as you ... And im actually trying re-Installing it on my other CD box... I hope it will work.
And even if it work im kinda scared to know ifwill like it or not ... Im pretty sure the people saying they hate is because they didnt took time to understand well ... But its only what i think so !
Damn its still not working ... I guess ill call some of my friends because im pretty ubi will never answer us ... They know that there game crashes ... But they prefer to ignoring their customer that experience crashes and prefer heading at their current player . so please Ubisoft ... Help dam it ! We buyed it ! We have the rights to play this game ...
Make sure you run the game with digital audio properties set to 48000hz or less in Windows menager. The game crashes if you use more than that. You should set digital audio properties to 48000hz it realy helps...
Please tell me how to set up the sound frequency output on Windows XP SP3. I use ALC888 sound card with the latest Realtek drivers and a 2.1 speaker setup. Nothing fancy, I mainly play with headphones.
Take into account that the game does NOT crash for me. It runs ok, I can hear the music and sounds but I've got no display.
Anyone solved this? I have the same problem (Windows XP) black screen but music and sounds works OK.
I am having the same black screen with sound on my newly installed PC version
Make sure you have the latest patch for the game installed.
For XP, try turning down hardware acceleration.
For Vista or Windows 7, make sure the sound frequency is 48000Hz or less.
