    1. Does your game simply crash, without any error messages, and you just get a BLACK Screen for few seconds and the game quits you to the Desktop ? Sometimes you may also get a black screen, saying that the 'Input or Mode is not supported', or 'Frequency Out of range'...

    Or, do you have problem booting up the Game ? When you click on the large "PLAY!" button, the game window says the game is running, but then it might say 'Synchronising save games' and after that everything closes ?

    *If you happen to face any of the above, then try to manually edit the game's config file, which is ConvictionUserPC.ini. Open this config file i.e. 'ConvictionUserPC.ini' with notepad, and search for the following heading/lines e.g.:

    [UserVideoOptions.Your_USER.ACCOUNT_Name]
    VisualQuality=2
    StartupFullscreen=True
    FullscreenViewportX=
    FullscreenViewportY=

    MaxRefreshRate=60
    WindowedViewportX=
    WindowedViewportY=
    UseVSync=False
    UseHDR=True
    MonitorAspect=-1.000000......



    Now enter the correct/current values relating to your Desktop's Screen Resolution Mode inside the 'FullscreenViewportX/Y=' lines and save this file. The above config file can be found here: C:\ProgramData\Ubisoft\Conviction\ConvictionUserPC .ini.

    Check what values are entered here, inside the 'FullscreenViewportX/Y' lines.

    These Folders may be 'Hidden' under Windows, so make a note of this. First Patch the game to the latest version, and then try entering these values.

    For Windows XP, try looking for the above file i.e. 'ConvictionUserPC.ini' under the following path, i.e. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users or Owner\Application Data\Ubisoft\Conviction. An example Topic:

    2. Are you getting Missing MENU options and in-game textures ? And you are using an ATI Video card ?

    Is your Game's Main MENU missing, and/or the Options are not properly visible, like e.g. something like this one ? Kindly click on the Image URL:

    http://i53.tinypic.com/svt3xk.jpg

    IF you are using an ATI Graphics Card, then you can try doing the following:

    Under ATI's CCC (Catalyst Control Center), try increasing the value of 'Mipmap Detail Level' setting, under the 3D section. Move/increase the slider to the right side to QUALITY Mode, and then check the in-game graphics. If you increase the value of 'Mipmap Detail Level', then the Textures should look more detailed/sharp.

    Also make sure all the settings under 3D section (e.g. Anti-Aliasing, Anisotropic Filtering etc.), are first set to the 'Use application settings' option. And also 'disable' the setting Catalyst A.I, (TICK the 'Disable Catalyst A.I.' box), this is important !

    Do you have the 'iZ3D driver' installed ? If yes, then add the Game's EXE i.e. 'conviction_game.exe' as well as 'gu.exe', to the Exceptions list of iZ3D, or remove this driver from your System.



    3. Some gamers have complained that their Screen Resolution is not supported by this game ?

    Actually, if you try to change the Video resolution in Splinter Cell: Conviction, sometimes you may find the resolution that matches your display is missing from the list (e.g. on some WideScreen Monitors). You might not notice it, but to solve this issue, you can actually scroll down the list of resolutions from the Menu.

    Just Scroll down the list to get your desired Screen Resolution....



    4. Are you sometimes getting this Message i.e. "conviction_game.exe has stopped working" ?

    Sometimes, NOT always, the game might hang at launch when it tries to auto detect the PC/system components. If this happens, you can bypass this.

    First launch the game, and manually adjust your desired optimal Game settings by yourself. Now, go to your game’s installation directory and rename the file systemdetection.dll to something else like e.g. systemdetectionbackup.dll.

    Now launch the game – it will throw an error message, but the game should launch instead of hanging. But make a BACKUP of the above 'systemdetection.dll' file, before making any changes.

    But, when you do the above method, you might sometimes notice horrible in-game FPS lag, and/or your resolution isn't supported, because the game might also start in an un-supported Screen RES, because the above .dll file has been renamed/deleted.

    So to fix the Screen Resolution problem, just follow STEP 1 which I've listed above, by editing the ConvictionUserPC.ini file.

    To fix the in-game Lag & Low FPS, if you are using a QUAD-core CPU, or even Dual CPU, just check and enable the CPU Core Affinity via the Task manager.

    After you have loaded the Game's Main Menu, Open Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL/CTRL+SHIFT+ESC) and Click on the Processes Tab. On the Processes tab, at the bottom click on the 'Show processes from all users' Button. Now Right click the process i.e. conviction_game.exe, and Click on the 'Set Affinity' option, and then look for the boxes labelled as CPU 0, CPU 1 etc. Just see how many CPU cores does the game fully utilize ? How many boxes are 'Checked' depending on your CPU model ?

    If you find any of the cores un-checked, then just Tick the boxes. But you have to do this in every Mission, and Game level, if the above 'systemdetection.dll' file has been altered......

    But make a note that the above trick of renaming the 'systemdetection.dll' file, is Not recommended to play the game. There could be other causes of this in-game crash.

    There is another method to solve this CRASH, by enabling a hidden ADMIN account on your PC, by using the command net user administrator /active:yes at the Command prompt.

    First make sure you Launch and run the game as an ADMIN, if using Win 7/Vista. Or, just disable User Account Control/UAC. But if you happen to face this startup crash, then you can try the above method.



    5. Are you getting a General Protection Fault/GPF error, when you play Co-Op, or the MP/Online part of Conviction ?

    Click on this image URL:

    http://i55.tinypic.com/fwlhue.jpg

    This is a Known Windows OS error, the cause of which can vary. A GPF is an error message generated by Windows, indicating that a program being used attempted to access a portion of memory that is either invalid or already in use.

    Do you have a Web Camera or any Mic ? Try plugging in some Webcam or a MIC/microphone, to overcome this MP 'General Protection Fault' error. Try using one of these. This is just a Temp workaround for this Error.



    6. Do you get any ERROR CODE 1, or Error Code 2 message, when you launch SCC ?

    Click on the image link below:

    http://i54.tinypic.com/fmtcgi.jpg

    This Error mostly relates to the UBI GameLauncher file. Which version of game do you have, Retail DVD or STEAM ?

    First you need to Manually delete the entire 'Ubisoft Game Launcher' folder, e.g. from C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher, or C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher. Also remove it from Control Panel----> Add/Remove programs (or Programs & Features).

    After that again re-install the Game Launcher from the disk/DVD. Browse the DVD, and go to 'Support folder-----> Game Launcher', and run the UbisoftGameLauncherInstaller.exe file.

    STEAM's path should be something like this e.g.: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\Common\Tom Clancy's Splinter cell Conviction\Redist\GameLauncher\UbisoftGameLauncher Installer.exe.

    Or, you can install the above software from here:

    http://static3.cdn.ubi.com/orb...auncherInstaller.exe


    If you still get this Error, then try deleting the 'Registry' entries of the Launcher, and then do a reinstall of the Game Launcher file, as told above. i.e. first remove it from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Ubisoft\Ub isoft Game Launcher (for 64 bit OS), or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher.



    7. Do you want to play Conviction in Windowed Mode ?

    If you want to play this game in Windowed Mode, then first try using this TOOL and app i.e. 3D Ripper DX, instead of editing the game's config file.

    Download this tool from here, select the Game's executable i.e. conviction_game.exe and Click on the Force Windowed Mode Option:

    http://www.deep-shadows.com/hax/3DRipperDX.htm


    You can also try using these tools....Follow the instructions carefully.

    http://appaholic.co.uk/2007/10...nto-a-windowed-mode/

    http://www.3dfxzone.it/dir/tools/3d_analyze/download/

    Download this program, and then Select the Game's exe e.g. conviction_game.exe, and click on the RUN button. But First make sure to *Check/Tick* the option Force Windowed Mode, under the Performance heading/tab. Try to make a BATCH file when you select the game's exe i.e. conviction_game.exe (using 3D-analyze), and then run this batch file.

    For DXWnd, try all the choices from the 'DX version to Hook' option.



    8. Do you want to Skip all the Game INTRO Movies on Startup, so that the Game boots up much faster ?

    Just download these files which I've uploaded, and after that Copy & Replace them inside the game's installed path e.g. Program Files\Ubisoft\Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction\data\Videos.

    But make a BACKUP of all the above BINK Video files, because original files might be needed when any PATCH is applied.

    http://www.2shared.com/file/fO.../SCC-Skip_intro.html



    9. As a side note, the following Internet Ports are necessary in order to play Splinter Cell: Conviction Online. Open the following ports in your Router or any Firewall software you may have:

    9103, 9100, 10196 (UDP outbound/inbound)
    80, 3081, 3105 (TCP outbound)
    22350 - 22380 (TCP inbound).



    Thanks for reading. These are just general game tweaks, which I think have known to work for Conviction Game.

    Thanks for providing this info. I have made a note of this solution, just in case I face this GPF error.

    I guess you are one of the lucky ones who didn't face this MP GPF crash with conviction till now. Just try to use any web camera or Mic as told above.

    cheers.

    Conviction - Blue Screen of Death

    I have a different issue than those stated here.

    My game runs perfectly. I don't have any crashes, freezes, black screens, etc. while playing the game. My problem crops up when I try to exit and return to Windows. I get a BSOD upon exiting, each and every single time. So much so that I've stopped playing the game for fear that it might damage some file or setting.

    Anyway, I've tried everything. Drivers are fully up to date. I have an AMD Radeon 6970 card with 2 GB RAM. I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit with 12 GB RAM. Plenty of hard drive space, recently defragged, no viruses, no spyware, no malware (daily scans on most stuff, weekly for the rest).

    I can run the game full screen with no issues. I can play through the whole thing, even Denial Ops, which I really enjoy playing, but it's always the same whenever I try to exit. Some one on Origin suggested Alt-Ctrl-Del'ing my way to the Task Manager and trying to shut down the game from there. Brilliant idea. Shut down the game file, no BSOD. But the UPlayBrowser was still running and when I tried to shut that down, BSOD. So, obviously, that's the culprit.

    The error I get is something about a page fault or there not being an open page, something like that. Haven't run it in a while to avoid the BSOD.

    Anyone else ever have this issue? Oh and I"ve tried rolling back my drivers, even tried installing DX9 to see if that would help. (Currently have DX11 installed.) I've tried running as admin and using Win XP (SP3) compatibility, Win XP (SP2), Win Vista (SP1), Win Vista (SP2) and just plain old Win Vista. I have the game set to 1920x1080 resolution.

    When I use solution 8 to skip the intro I get a weird side effect. When look for matches with match-making, the search never moves on from "Finding the best matches based on your preferences". It never expands the search. Any clue as to why that is? Anyone else run into the same problem?
