What works

Intro and menu's work. With a patch, i was able to enter the game, but it was horribly slow , and the graphics didn't seem to look all right.

What does not

Entering and running the game really. Splintercell suffers from bug 3837. By applying the patch below i was able to enter the game. The slowness might be due to my crappy soundsystem. Would be nice if someone could test it it works for him/her faster.

HowTo / Notes

How to fix lighting and shadow effects.

For Windows and Linux systems who have newer video cards:

The shadow placements may be incorrect – Spot light beams may not appear, flash light beams may not appear, ceiling light beams may not appear.

To fix this do the following:

  1. In the game folder go to SYSTEM folder and open SplinterCell.ini file with text editor. 
  2. Find block [D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice] 
  3. Add or change (if string exists) ForceShadowMode=1 to ForceShadowMode=0
  4. Save the edited file
