Alright, I install the game with no problem

But when i try to run it (through autorun, the desktop, or the directory) it goes to a black screen and then freezes.

If I let it stay black for like 5-10 mins it switches back to windows.

Ive tried everything the help file suggested. I meet not only the minimum requirements but also the reccomended requirements.

I scandisked, I defragged, I took away all spyware, deleted stuff i didn't need, and even ran a registry cleaner.

Nothing.

Im losing patience so I turn to smarter people.

Please help.

The copy protection on Hitman 2 can be a pain in the arse for certain drives. Use a no-cd patch and see if it works.

Hey Dude I need Help! Sequel to Hey Dude where's my car? or is it the extended DVD edition.

I tried all of that, to no avail.

However I did read else where on the forums that there is an error with creative pci sound cards. I went to run dxdiag / sound. Then moved the acceleration to no accelleration. This worked like a charm

I can now play this kick ass game, however i have to drop out of school as a result of all the time spent on the computer.

Oh well, you win some you lose some.

Note: anyone with a start up problem try this first, as it may save you hours of frustration.

What are you doing here then? Wink

Um, if you're using a PCI128, you'll get no sound. You'll need a new sound card. LivePlayer 5.1 sets are dirt cheap now. And it's got EAX. That's the best advice I can give.

I have sound, its pretty decent too.

Its just its not accelerated. I make up for it though, i was born with accelerated hearing.

The only real problem i have is the game crashes every once in a while, but that happens to everyone, right?

As far as im concerned, the game works, so im not going to mess with it anymore.

And so the mystery of the crashing game was solved.

PCI sound card: And I would have gotten away with it too if it wasnt for those pesky HHQers!
