Issues fixed[edit]

Stuck on unsupported resolution[edit]

Upon launching the game might be stuck on an unsupported resolution that causes the title screen to display incorrectly and to crash upon entering gameplay with attempts to switch it in the menu leaving it on the especially unsupported 0x0 resolution.
Change resolution in the registry[2]
  1. Open the registry editor.
  2. Go to Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Activision\Spider-Man (TM) SD\Settings\Display, the keys and their values will be displayed on the right.
  3. Select the Width key and in the window that comes up change the base to decimal and type into Value data your desired (supported) horizontal resolution, hit OK to close the window and apply the value.
  4. Repeat the last step but for the Height and vertical resolution: Select the Height key and in the window that comes up change the base to decimal and type into Value data your desired (supported) vertical resolution, hit OK to close the window and apply the value.
  • The game should start in the chosen resolution when relaunched with you being to now freely change the resolution from the options menu.

Only a black screen and the HUD is visible[edit]

Copy d3dx9_43.dll to the game's base directory[3]
  1. Find a compatible copy of d3dx9_43.dll
  2. Move it to the game's base install directory
  • It should be in the same directory as Game.exe and Launcher.exe
  • A working version can be downloaded here.

Unlock FPS[edit]

Use Cheat Engine[citation needed]

Use cheat engine and search for 0.016666666666 as a float in rounded (extreme) mode while game.exe is selected in the memory search range and "Writable", "Executable" and "CopyOnWrite is set to "Don't Care"". Two of the values shown will be FPS related. Change both to 0.00277777 for 360 FPS. The game may stutter initially but will get stable after a few seconds. Using v-sync here is recommended. Forcing a refresh rate may be needed as well, see Widescreen notes. Hex editing these values may be possible on some executables; removing the need of following the above process each time the game is launched. Replace all instances of 89 88 88 3C with 3F 0B 36 3B (360 FPS).

Widescreen resolution[edit]

Change value in registry[citation needed]
  1. Press Ctrl+R and then type in regedit regedit and press enter
  2. Navigate to Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Activision\Spider-Man (TM) SD\Settings\Display
  3. Change named values to set desired resolution, refresh rate, etc.

Issues unresolved[edit]


The frame rate may occasionally be erratic, resulting in a choppy feel.
