This was the first thing I found that worked for me after four hours of dealing with Ubisoft's incompetant BS. It is a simple fix, so simple it is astounding how this didn't get fixed during testing, but that is Ubisoft after all. EA lite as I like to call them. If any of this works, likes and subscriptions are greatly appreciated!

STEPS TO SOLVE CTD ERROR FOR SPLINTER CELL
---
GO TO:
1: C:\Users\yournamehere\Documents\Ubisoft\Blacklist\videoSettings.ini
2: Change "WindowStyleFinal=1" option to 0 or 2.
---
0 = Windowed
1 = Fullscreen (default)
2 = Windowed Fullscreen
---
Some have had issues with the .ini file remaining saved correctly. This is possibly a administrative conflict with Windows, but I am not sure. Karmla91 was good enough to help out before I even read the question. If you right-click the file and go to properties, after changing it, and check read-only it should fix this particular issue.
---
A few people have stated that this didn't work but when they set validationrequired to 0 that allowed the game to run...
---
If you CAN'T FIND INI file, try going your directory where you installed the game by default c/:programfilesx86/Ubisoft/Bla­cklist. cut the systemdetection.dll file and paste in the desktop, but don't lose the file it is very important.
--- I hope this works for you, it amazes me that they can release such a buggy game even after a last minute update(or 2)... If none of this has worked, make sure your drivers are all up to date (motherboard, windows, cpu, gpu), validate your game cache on steam, and have tried to override the games graphics settings using your video cards GUI. If none of that works, than sadly you might want to consider a reinstall or even waiting until UBERsoft gets around to fixing their atrociously buggy game.
--
I hope this works for everyone but know that it won't. It isn't a fix but more of a temporary solution until UBERsoft gets their crap together. If it helps you likes and subscriptions are greatly appreciated. If it doesn't help you, I am sorry, but this game has so many different bugs and glitches that it hard to imagine it was even tested for the PC.
---
Negative comments towards any others will be removed unless they are towards Ubisoft and/EA of course! You can also be negative towards me if that helps your self-esteem, it certainly isn't going to bother me but the whole point of this is to help people deal with a shitty situation so any d-bag comments towards others will be removed and you shall be banished from the tribe forevermore! ;p
