Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory is a singleplayer and multiplayer third-person and first-person action and stealth game in the Splinter Cell series.

This version is based on the Xbox version, with additional PC-specific enhancements such as HDR Rendering. However the game didn't support Shader Model 2.0 initially, though eventually added in patch version 1.04.[1]

The official online multiplayer service is no longer available.[2]

Widescreen resolution

See also Shadows become more broken the wider the screen resolution.
Use Splinter Cell Chaos Theory Widescreen Fix[9]
  1. Download widescreen fix and extract it.
  2. Move its files to <path-to-game>.
  3. To enable windowed mode, open d3d9.ini and set ForceWindowedMode to 1.
  4. Go to the scripts folder and open SplinterCellChaosTheory.WidescreenFix.ini.
  5. Change value of ResX = 0 to desired horizontal resolution.
  6. Change value of ResY = 0 to desired vertical resolution.
  7. (OPTIONAL) If you're using different language than Engilsh, then change value of GameLanguage = 0 to value matching your language (those are listed above in the SplinterCellChaosTheory.WidescreenFix.ini file).

Notes:

Automatically adjusts resolution and FOV, fixes HUD position and stretching.
Works with downsampling or Nvidia DSR - manually change the resolution in the supplied configuration file.
Widescreen fix contains an additional fix for Alt+Tabbing, which helps with restoring game's window after it's minimized.
Allows for changing shadow map size in the ini file.
Unlocks framerate and adds a configurable framerate cap.
Adds optional Blacklist-style visibility indicators.
Widescreen - Singleplayer[citation needed]
You must have run the game at least once before these files appear.
Further graphic settings adjustment will revert resolution back to 4:3.
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open SplinterCell3.ini.
  3. Adjust the following fields:
FullscreenViewportX= (line 98)
FullscreenViewportY= (line 99)
Widescreen - Versus[10]
  1. Open %PROGRAMDATA%\Ubisoft\Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory\Saved Games\Versus\<user-id>_prf.ini.
  2. Look for ScreenRes= entry and give it -1 value.
  3. Save the file.
  4. Open <path-to-game>\Versus\System\Default.ini.
  5. Scroll down to the [WinDrv.WindowsClient] class.
  6. Adjust the following fields:
FullscreenViewportX=
FullscreenViewportY=
When changing the resolution values to a resolution different than one of the preset resolutions, Versus will only run using low visual settings.

Anti-aliasing

HDR rendering and anti-aliasing can't be used together by default.
Force AA externally via Nvidia Profile Inspector (for Nvidia graphics only)
  • Use this compatibility flag 0x00001041 for traditional multi-sampling AA. Then adjust the strength as necessary.
Use injectSMAA
Shares the same d3d9.dll files with widescreen fix, additionally this causes thermal vision to show blue temperature colours with no yellows, oranges or reds.

Field of view (FOV)

Edit SplinterCell3User.ini[5]
  1. Go to the configuration files location.
  2. Open SplinterCell3User.ini.
  3. Adjust the following values (91.31 is advised for 16:9 displays, and 85.28 for 16:10 ones):
    DesiredFOV=75.0
    DefaultFOV=75.0
  4. Save the changes.

Notes:

Apply this fix before creating a profile. If your profile was created before the fix, you'll need to zoom in/out with your weapon every time you load a previous made save in order for the custom FOV to be used.

Issues unresolved

Alt+Tab

There are issues using Alt+Tab in fullscreen mode. If used too many times, it will disconnect players connected to your server and can even crash the game.

30 FPS lock/limit

Netcode only supports a maximum of 30 frames per second for proper sync between players in multiplayer. Bypassing this limit results in things such as co-op actions not executing properly.
A fan made program can be used to unlock the framerate in multiplayer, but host needs to set FPS to 32 anyway, to keep the proper sync: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=265715221

Disconnect at random intervals during co-op campaign

There is an issue for some users happening at random after a couple of minutes where the game disconnects both players while playing the co-op campaign. The issue can be encountered 100% during the training mission while hacking the first laptop the players come across. In this case you need to make sure that both players have the same FOV 75.0 set in both configs (instruction) and no widescreen patch installed since it can interfere with FOV value. Be aware that Epic version have a widescreen patch preinstalled. In subsequent missions it seems to happen randomly after some time. No real fixes have been reported that work for everyone. Try setting interface metric of your virtual LAN adapter for 1 for both players (instruction). For some completely uninstalling NOD32 solved the problem.[13][citation needed]. Optionally disabling any other anti-virus software and firewall at the same time can help for better game stability and to alleviate the issue[14] Optionally try changing LanServerMaxTickRate=30 in Splinter Cell Chaos Theory\Versus\System\default.ini[15][citation needed]. There is also a bug disconnecting you from the game every time when you unlock the doors in Nuclear Plant mission (here) if host uses polish language pack (might apply for client as well; there won't be any subtitles in the last mission, because the missions were introduced later in the patch), but to fix that you just need to apply the polish version of the 1.05 patch available here, but you will also probably need to back up the exe files if you use the steam or uplay version as the exe files from the patch still require the game disc.

Issues fixed

Game crashes when trying to start new mission / change settings

Disable any software that hooks into graphic's API (most notably OBS and Dxtory)[9]
To capture the game with OBS, force Windowed mode and capture the game using Window Capture instead of Game Capture.

Missing torchlight/flashlight in Versus mode

Versus mode has problems rendering certain lighting effects on modern machines. This problem makes it very difficult to play properly. Certain shadows may not render and mercenarie's flashlights don't work, severely impairing gameplay. Follow one of the solutions below to fix these issues.
Hack compatible pixel shaders[16]
  1. Download and install 3D-Analyze.
  2. Launch 3D-Analyze.
  3. In 3D-Analyze, click the SELECT button and choose <path-to-game>\Versus\System\SCCT_Versus.exe
  4. Checkmark the Gun Metal Demo fix boxes.
  5. Press the Save batch file! at the bottom of the 3D-Analyze window.
  6. Close 3D-Analyze.
You will need to launch the game using the batch file generated by the program every time.
Use dgVoodoo 2[5]
  1. Download the latest version of dgVoodoo 2 and extract it (verified working on version 2.55.4).
  2. Copy all the files from the MS folder and paste the files to <path-to-game>\Versus\System.
Even better looking shadows than 3D-Analyze.
The Unreal Level Editor included with the game will not function properly.

Slow motion gameplay on multi-core CPUs in Versus mode

Use alternate timer[17]
  1. Open <path-to-game>\Versus\System\Default.ini
  2. Set UseAlternateTimer=false to UseAlternateTimer=true.
  3. Save the file.

Night vision/thermal vision/EMF not displaying correctly

If everything turns white when you activate your night vision and/or turns black when you activate your thermal vision/EMF, follow one of the instructions below.
Enable Windows Compatibility Mode
  1. Enable Windows XP (Service Pack 3) Compatibility Mode.
Use Alt+Tab
  1. First minimize and then restore the game back by using Alt+Tab.[18]
Use different shader model
  1. Select another shader model by using the in-game display settings menu.[18][19]
Disable High dynamic range (HDR)
  1. Disable High dynamic range (HDR) rendering in shader options when using shader model 3. Disabling it also allows antialiasing

Shadows become more broken the wider the screen resolution

Use Widescreen Fix[20]
  1. Download the widescreen fix and extract its files to <path-to-game>\System.
  2. Go to the scripts folder and open SplinterCellChaosTheory.WidescreenFix.ini.
  3. Change value of SetShadowMapSize = 0 to 2048, 3072, 4096, 5120, 6144, 7168, or 8192.

Notes:

The original unmodified shadow map size is 2048.
3072 is sufficient to fix this issue for 1080p.
SetShadowMapSize = 0 and SetShadowMapSize = 2048 disable shadow map size changing.
Override does not work on exes modified via the alternative hexedit method.
Hexedit to increase shadow map size[21]
  1. Open SPLINTERCELL3.EXE with a hex editor such as HxD.
  2. Search and replace the hex values 68 00 08 00 00 68 00 08 00 00 in HxD with one of the following:
  • 68 00 0C 00 00 68 00 0C 00 00 (For 3072)
  • 68 00 10 00 00 68 00 10 00 00 (For 4096)
  • 68 00 14 00 00 68 00 14 00 00 (For 5120)
  • 68 00 18 00 00 68 00 18 00 00 (For 6144)
  • 68 00 1C 00 00 68 00 1C 00 00 (For 7168)
  • 68 00 20 00 00 68 00 20 00 00 (For 8192)

3. Replace 89 8C 24 E0 00 00 00 B9 00 01 00 00 with 89 8C 24 E0 00 00 00 B9 00 00 01 00, BB 9A 99 99 3F with BB 00 00 80 3E and C7 86 C8 07 00 00 9A 99 99 BE with C7 86 C8 07 00 00 9A 99 19 BE.

Notes:

Changing the first line of bytes determines the shadow map size as specified below, After editing in the shadow map size of your choice, replace the rest of bytes to apply the fix.
If using the Widescreen Fix be sure to set OriginalExe = 0 in SplinterCellChaosTheory.WidescreenFix.ini.
