      and especially i diddent wait for the game to play it without the sequenzes.
      and while im writing please send out a patch for the language...the german

        hi,

        I have the same Problem, too.
        But only on resolutions of 1024x768 and above.
        On 800x600 the intro-sequence works fine.

        System:
        WinXP pro SP2
        AMD 64 3800+
        7900GT 512MB
        2 GB RAM
        Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Fatality
        all drivers are new

                  I encounter the same problem as you do...
                  But if i skip the cincematics and enter the first map, the game'll still freeze like described above ..
                  now it throws me to my desctop and i get an " Visual C++ Runtime Library" message wich says ut3.exe is terminated in an unusual way.

                  hope this helps

                    I'm getting freezing during any of the campaign cinematics. I've updated drivers, killed useless processes.... not sure what's going on.

                      Same here
                      amd athlon xp 4800+
                      gforce 7900gtx
                      2 gb pc3200 ddr
                      asus a8n-e

                      win xp prof sp2
                      169.00 driver

                      Imedeately after pushing the campaign button the game freezes an your only posibility is to kill the process in the taskmanager.

                        Delete the sequenzes???
                        yeah thats why i paid for the game, so i have less of it than
                        someone who got it illegal..
                        anyway i tried a trick from splintercell double agent were you add the lines "-ll" to the shortcut of the exe
                        it went on a alittle longer than before but still froze up in the cinematic

                          I have the same problem. As soon as I start the campaign my game crashes. I don't want to delete the cinematics because that's why I bought the game. Please help!

                              I viewed the movies with the Bink tools, but was unaware of the multitrack. I was dissapointed because there was no dialog.

                              THANK YOU
