View Full Version : Splinter Cell Chaos Theory PC Crashing

04-30-2015, 10:27 PM
Hi I was just gifted a copy of Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory for PC on Steam. I started it up just fine, the default resolution was 1024x768. I want it to be 1920x1080 and there is an option for this in the dropdown box, however whenever I click save settings the game tries to set it to 1920x1080 and crashes. No matter what I try; Disabling my second monitor, running as administrator, using this -ll command I saw in a steam forum. It always crashes and I am unable to even begin the game.

Specs are
i7 5930k 4.8Ghz
16gb DDR4 RAM
EVGA SC 980 2.0, 4GB VRAM
SSD with ample room

Please help, also the .ini manipulation of the fullscreenresolution= field is not giving me any results either. :confused:

Just got this game yesterday and had the same problem. I know it's a late response, but hopefully it helps you out. What I did was hit the windows key and type "record".
The option "Record Game clips, screenshots, and broadcast using game bar" should be clicked. Once that is up... I disabled everything on game bar, Capture, and Game Mode. I also made sure to have my Nvidia game overlay off. Also make sure to not have any other capture device like OBS running because that seems to mess it up too.

Hope this helps
