    Well the demo was pretty good. I enjoyed it. Sucks i could only use PS 1.1, but the graphics were still sweet though. I think this is going to be the best Splinter Cell so far :)

    Well I had downloaded this demo file from both filerush and 3dgamers. I have tried installing on 2 diff comps and still get the same error. I get a 'internal error' popup at the very end of the installation. It then asks if I want to create a shortcut for the game. When I click to run the game it crashes.

    Im confused.

    After downloading from filefront and not having it work with the same errors I decided to find programs running on my comp that may be effecting the game startup.

    Turns out the culprit was Stardocks Window Blinds.

    Turned it off and now I can play the game.

    Try this link: http://www.gamershell.com/download_8428.shtml

    Use the netherlands 1000Mbps/150 slot server and get ready for a fast DL (assuming you have a fast connection that is....)

    That netherlands server gets me the fastest downloads I have ever received and I'm in the USA so that's saying something about the server.

    Jup Multikabel/Quicknet owns, i know since it's my provider, :p

    They will probably not add SM2.0 since XBOX only uses 1.1, and to promote Nvidia's geforce 6 series they probably implemented SM3.0.

    But about the game, glad i have a geforce 6 series, SM3.0 :drool: :drool:

    Just the same sh*t that happend with Geforce FX and Half-life 2, where it supposedly didn't support the DX9.0 path( while it was proved otherwise with some hacks using 3dAnalyze ).

    So what can i say, sh*t happens.

    just got done with the demo. I also had that "internal" error near the end of installation but when I cancled the error screen the installer popped back up and asked if i wanted to install a shortcut. Game ran fine with no issues at all so i dont know what was up with that.

    Graphics looked great overall. Improvement there I guess. Character textures were horrible, though all the surfaces were nice. The level they chose was not very good for showcasing the weapons and moves very well in my opinion. Seemed a bit tedious compared to how I remember the other SC releases. The only real improvement aside from graphics which i thought was really cool was that the noise level bar tracks ambient noise so if you are in a noisy enviornment you can make a lot more noise. There is an indicator in the bar that shows a level above which you will be heard.

    I love the SC series, but based on the demo, i'll probably wait for this one to drop in price before I buy it....

    Is these game a
    "Nvidia and the way it's meant to be sucked"
    errr i mean "to be played" :bleh:

    Anyway that it is a shame and unfair

    Only the users with a Nvidia new generation card will have the ability to see the game graphics in their "Full glory" :tears:

    I hope a hack or a patch exists that will add PS 2.0 support as you say

    Well as i notice you have a ATI card like me

    What do you expected the game supports Shaders 1.1 and Shaders 3.0

    and you played the game with shaders 1.1 as there is no other choice for ATI cards that's why the textures seem "XBOXISH"

    That sucks that PS 2.0 isn't there as it isn't any difference between PS 2.0 and 3.0, Ubi soft should be ashame of it selfs.

    I wouldn't mind some controversy though, with this title rather than some truly major one. It was some time ago that we felt any real heat in this industry. ;)

    I was listening main menu music and thinking "wow!" then said to my friend about chaos theory music being good, he said it's made by Amon Tobin. It's one of my favourite bands :) I'm gonna go to one festival during next summer where Amon Tobin plays. Nice to see chaos theory at least got some great musics :cool:

    I rather think it's time for developers to stop this "our games runs better on ATI or Nvidia"

    It's quite stupid of Ubisoft to not include PS 2.0 in the game as there isn't any differences between PS 2.0 and 3.0.

    What about the users that have only PS 2.0 cards, that would be milions and milions of users.

    It's Ubi softs loss............not mine................

    ps 1.1, ps 2.0, if game looks nice and has some awesome content, it doesn't matter much imho.
