Thread: Splinter Cell 1: "Stuck" (literally) at start of oil rig level | Forums

    Possible workaround - performed adjustments, works everytime, limited to no stick.

    Hey all,

    I've been dealing with the same stuck issue for a while too. Here's what I've done to get passed stuck issues.
    1 - Create an exclusion in Antivirus for the game folder, "SplinterCell.exe" file and the save game locations and files too.
    2 - Set "SplinterCell.exe" to run as administrator. Right click on the exe, properties, Compatibility, Run as administrator. If this game is run for all users try setting to run as administrator for all users.
    3 - In game settings change the default jump and action keys to bypass sticky key feature. So you can jump rapidly. So make the space bar jump and the shift key action.

    I've had limited to no sticking. If there is sticking than the jumping as suggested by others works just as well... and even better when jumping is not mapped to sticky key.

    Hope this helps!

However, in my case, once I try to move onto those pipes, Sam cannot move (only rotate). Anyone else seen this problem?

    You can avoid the glitch by getting on the planks on the left, then casually pass by the glitch point

    And at the zipline just after that, you have to manually let go before Sam lets go automatically by himself. Instead of trying to grab the ledge of the platform (and failing to do so every time), he grabs on to a beam to his right.
    Thank you so much for this

    If you're still having problems, don't go up the ladder! As you begin the mission there is a pipe directly ahead. Its rooted in the sea. This can be climbed. You will need to change your position on the pipe near the top to reach your jump off point. This will leave you on the correct side of the barbed wire to continue.
