I finally got splinter cell working after 2 months of trying to get it to launch and when it finally did , The GUIs were invisible, and the graphics were a complete mess.
I have some screenshots of this and i have changed the graphics about 10 times and it has improved the graphics so more things are visible.
did you get it fixed? i have a similar problem where i can open the game (splinter cell conviction) but it wont work because the players are flickering. the whole scene is flickering between the players, npcs, background, etc.
