Sniper Ghost Warrior Errorrs,Black Screen,Crashes, Freezes and Fixes

No Image

Sniper Ghost Warrior, another game plagued by problems of its own, demo looked fine, with only one issue to worry about. But it seems like the full game release has come with many problems of its own and we believe a patch to fix these issues is already in the works. Anyway, till the developers release the official patch to fix all these issues, you can check this guide for possible fixes to your specific problems.

Sniper Ghost Warrior Errors, Crashes, Freezes, Black Screen Fix, Keyboard Unresponsiveness, Multiplayer Connection Errors

1# Sniper Ghost Warrior Black Screen Fix
Sniper Ghost Warrior doesn’t support multiple monitors. So if you have more then one monitor, the game will often give a blackscreen on launch.
In order to resolve this issue, create a shorcut to the game executable and in the compatibility toggle “Disable Desktop Composition”.
Another workaround is, disable your second monitor, run the game, close the game, enable the second monitor, run the game again and it should run without any problems with both monitors enabled.

2# Sniper Ghost Warrior The Game Doesn’t Launch (Win7)
Run the game in compatibility mode of Windows XP Service Pack 2. Right click on the game executable, go to properties, select compatibility tab, and choose Windows XP Service Pack 2 from the drop down menu.

3# Game Crashes to Desktop From Time to Time
If you are facing frequent game crashes, either you have corrupted install or some application is conflicting with the game.

4# Sniper Ghost Warrior Invalid Serial Key Error
Launch the game by clicking on the “Play Game” button in your library in steam client. Once you have played the game from inside steam client, your desktop shortcut will work as well.

5# Unresponsive Keyboard
When you launch the game, keyboard doesn’t respond, only mouse works, even the “Press Any Key” page responds to right click on the mouse. This issue still needs to be addressed by developers, so expect some sort of fix or patch soon.

6# Multiplayer “Joining Server” Crash to Desktop
When someone tries to connect to the multiplayer, the game crashes to desktop whenini “Jong Server” message appears. Try reinstalling the game as few corrupted files may be the reason for this.

7# RMB is Sticky
Sniper Ghost Warrior doesn’t allow you to remap right mouse button to anything else other then the default zoom. If you were looking for some sort of a fix, you will have to wait as developers have this to say.

In next patch we’ll fix this – we’re sorry for this situation.

8# Connection to Server Timed Out
Double check if your P2P traffic is not restricted or blocked by your ISP, if that’s the case then you are unlucky.

9# Keyboard @ Key Doesn’t Work
The game doesn’t respond to @ key, due to which some of you may be enable to create the multiple profile hence, unable to play multiplayer. Here are few possible workarounds, which may work for you but its a hit and trial.
The developers are onto this situation anyway and may release a patch sooner then expected.  Try to map @ key to any mouse button using its key emulator software. If that doesn’t work, press “NumLock”, hold “ALT”, first press 6 and then 4 “ALT+64″ and see if that works.

10# Game Start > Out of Range on Monitor
When you start the game, you can hear the game sounds, but get out of range on monitor. Now if you have downloaded the game from Steam, you can try these command line options to force start the game in native resolution and refresh rate.
-w <width> – Forces the engine to start with resolution set to <width>. Example: -w 1024
-h <height> – Forces the engine to start with resolution set to <height>. Example: -h 768
-refresh <rate> – Force a specific refresh rate. Example: -refresh 60.

Alternatively you can edit game configuration file to achieve the same.

11# Game is Currently Unavailable Error
Right click on the game inside steam, go to properties>local files> verify the integrity of the game cache. If that doesn’t work go to Steam folder, and find “ClientRegistry.blob”, rename it to “OldClientRegistry.blob”.
Once you have done that it should update your steam, it will ask you to login back into your account, once steam has updated, try running the game again.

If you are facing difficulties in resolving any problem running the game, write it in comments.If you know any other fix that will help resolve these issues more conveniently, please share.

      I installed through steam and when I launched the game it only appeared on the top part of my screen less than an inch from the top. from what I can see it looks like the start up menu with a sniper in a gillie suit but when i click on the games box in the lower left coner to enter full screen nothing but blurry yellow and grey lines show up? anyone?

    • asif

      when i am loading the game the game crashes to desktop…

    • Logical13

      After messing with this issue myself, for 2 hours, i found a fix :D

      When it starts up, goes black and throws you back to windows, click
      its icon in the bottom of the screen, and as soon as it starts up,
      click left and right mouse button! Have fun :)

    • MrClint

      Black Screen: I’m using Windows 8..Could that be a problem?

    • Reis

      About blank screen:

      Im using windows 7
      Close the game. Go to my documents\Sniper – Ghost Warrior\out\Settings.
      There are 2 files here one called: AUDIO and VIDEO…and they are tagged as ‘Screen Saver’ and you cannot open them by clicking on them.
      So…open word/wordpad something that can open txt, and find this file…(remember to open all types of document), and open the VIDEO file.
      You will get a word document that looks like this (dont get scared by all this gobely goop, its not that difficult

      Just change the line; Fullscreen() to Fullscreen(“Yes”)
      Obs: do not change the line !Fullscreen(), ok? Just the line Fullscreen(). Did you see the diference (!)?
      Then save the file…
      It solves almost every blank screen problems in Sniper Ghost Warrior.

      Dear Support:
      OK. I have just spent the last 22 hours of downloading the game updates from the Internet which added another 4G to my data download, which is going to add $40 to my Verizon Broadband connection. When I click on the “Sniper Ghost Warrior” Icon, a small black pop-up screen appears stating “Preparing to launch sniper: Ghost Warrior. . . ” After that nothing happens.
      I opened Windows Explorer and opened the disk “BD-RE Drive (E:) Sniper GW. I clicked on application file “Setup” which brought up the Sniper: Ghost warrior jungle screen with “Play Sniper-Ghost warrior, Reinstall, Uninstall, Technical Support and Exit. When I click on Play Sniper-Ghost Warrior. The same small screen appears for a few seconds with “Preparing to launch sniper: Ghost Warrior. . . ” Again, after that nothing happens.
      Did you people ever Beta test this thing before you put it out? I am just about to create a web site letting people know how difficult it is to load this game and get it running. People need to know they are wasting their valuable time and their money.
      Jim
      Hello,

      A staff member has replied to your question:

      Hello Jim, If the previous instructions did not succeed in installing the game from the disc then you will need to download the game from our servers in order to play. If you have any further questions, please let us know – we will be happy to assist you.

      I sent this letter Five days ago and have not had a response. How do I get this game to work.
      Yes, I have the boxed version of the game. I had previously downloaded over 40% of the game after 8 hours. I thought this was ridicules since I had paid $27 for the game to be on disk. Now I have to pay an extra cost to for download fees from the broadband service.

      I have Windows7.

      I followed your instructions to:
      Launch Steam. If the game is listed in the “Installed” section, right click on it and click ‘Delete local content’.
      I did this which means that I will lose the data that I had already downloaded.

      In the window Run box enter the following and click OK:
      I type the following command in the Windows run box. c:\program files\steam\steam.exe
      The computer tells me it does not exist. So I find the path at C:\Program Files (x86)\ Steam there is no steam.exe. However, there is a steam application file which brings up the steam screen that I had deleted the program out of.

      It went through the same file download from the DVD as before. The popup screen mentioned it was going to use about 4200Mb of space. OK, there is enough room for that. When that ended it went on line to proceed to download 4200Mb of data over the next 14 hours. THE WHOLE GAME AGAIN. WHICH I HAD ALREADY DOWNLOADED 40% AND 8 HOURS FROM THE PREVIOUS TIME. Now it is going to cost me another $20 in broadband costs.

      I am paying enough for the game up front . . . and it should be there. Then I get on line and see that you are offering a 75% discount for the game.

    • Monkey

      The game is fine. Make sure after you download the game that all the latest updates are in place. If your running Steam, quit steam FULLY (Close it from the task bar, bottom right) then re-open steam and it should auto start downloading the updates. It was about 500Mb download for me, so you can go cook me some food while you wait :D nom nom

One should not have to go through so much painsaking ordeals just to download a game. Is there a fix?

      The game does not start in Windows XP SP2 or SP3 (upgraded). Nothing appears on screen not even a black screen. Sniper_x86.exe can be found as an idle process in the background. Checked for multiple monitors and native resolution issues with no luck. Installed twice. – XP SP3, AMD X2 3GHZ, 4GB RAM, 9800GT.

      Most of the problem, it’s cause by old graphics card driver. Try to update your graphic card driver first. It’s seems all crash cause by this problem.

        Restarting the game should have worked or the problem still remains. Same happened with me once in Call of Duty 4 Multiplayer, but restarting the game made it revert back to default settings. Or Restore default settings just a try.

      everytime i run the mission *on Your Own* then after i plant the c4 and destroy the air thingies i get an *runtime error* on my screen and the game freezes and crashes shortly afterwards plz help..

    • Joel

      Yeah I’m also having a problem with the black screen with sound upon game startup. I used to have it working perfectly but for some reason it’s not working anymore … Perhaps I had updated graphics drivers or other system drivers… Either way I know my system is fully up to date with drivers and my graphics card is more than enough to handle the game. So if the solution is to downgrade your drivers that might work BUT that’s just ridiculous. The shortcut tricks mentioned here do not work. I’ve come to the conclusion that since this seems to be a large problem for a lot of us that this is just a really flop game. When you buy a game and your not able to run it due to fail programming and unable to return the game as it’s opened it’s not a very pleasant experience.

      So moral of this story for those wanting to try this game …. TORRENT IT if it works then go ahead and buy it .. otherwise if it doesn’t work you’re not out the cash.

        Run the game in your desktop resolution and it will run fine.

    • Bernie

      I have the video, video is great …. but no sound. I have a silent assassin. Would be handy in the real world but not in a game. Any help would be great.

    • Ryan

      Hey im have the same issue as everyone else black screen can hear sound lol seems to be a very common problem last time i buy a game from them.. anyone find a fix for this yet i have tryed many things but nothing seems to work and my computer has run games with good graphics before.

      • http://segmentnext.com Zawad Iftikhar

        Out of range error. Start the game in native desktop resolution. If you bought the game off the steam, set launch options to your native desktop resolution or change the resolution in game config file.

    • Collin

      Im having an issue where when i boot up the game i can hear everything and the screen is completely black. It’s not the issue listed about black screen ive tried it and have been successful with the method but the game will still not work. I know this because i can still run the shift+tab in game and when i shift tab out it leaves glitchy traces of the main frame. If you have any idea what this is about please help
