I have a weird problem with my game. I installed the game correctly, played a bit of the story and also played in co op with a friend, but now for NO reason my game doesn't want to launch.
I launch my game through steam as usual and when I select play it says "Game running...", then i get a quick black screen for like 1-2 second, and got the after game report "Thank you for playing splinter cell conviction" !
I tried everything, google it, re-dowload/install it again, even the uplay platform, verified the integrity of game cache... i'm really disapointed because I want to play this game so much and I find no solution for it... please help me. :[
Hello irpr0kk... this occurs when Splinter Cell Conviction is installed and the game pre-configure's your PC Monitor's resolution and/or refresh rate "incorrectly". The quickfix is to change the default values in the ConvictionUserPC.ini file to your PC Monitor's "default/current" resolution and refresh rate. Locate the ConvictionUserPC.ini file (see Note) and highlight/right click/edit; this should open the file. Next, edit the lines of text (see Example) and change the values... lastly, save the ConvictionUserPC.ini file. Example: Before [DefaultVideoOptions]
Note: ProgramData folder is a hidden folder, so you will have to enable hidden folders to see it.
