Update: I have found an alternative method to skip the intro videos, which I have added to the wiki page as Method 2.

I'm attemping to follow the suggestion on the wiki page for Chaos Theory to remove the intro movies, along with the widescreen suggestions.

 

 

Skip intro videos • Link

Icon_fix.png Edit startup video playlist

  1. Open SplinterCell3.ini
  2. Comment (put a semicolon in front of) these lines: LogosVideo=logos_PC.bik (line 15) SplashVideo=introteaser_PC.bik (line 17) ESRBVideo=ESRB.bik (line 18)
  3. Save the ini file.

  1. Open SplinterCell3.ini
  2. Adjust the following fields:
FullscreenViewportX= (line 98)FullscreenViewportY= (line 99)

 

Unfortunately neither seem to be working.  I've opened the correct files, commented out the lines and set my own X and Y resolution.  The game is ignoring them however.  The odd thing is that it isn't overwriting the files or anything, which makes me think the game ignores these files entirely for some reason.  I'm running the game through Steam, if it helps..

From your screenshots it looks like you're editing the wrong file. You're editing files in the installation folder whereas the game page lists %PROGRAMDATA% (which is a different location). You should be able to paste the path as provided to go directly to the correct location.

      This is the offical Hungarian translation for 'Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow', extractred from the Retail version of the game. Tested only with 'Retail' version of the game, but it have to work with other releases (any future Digital version, if will be available once). The password for the archive is: pcgw.
      In Hungarian: Ez a hivatalos magyar nyelvű fordítás a Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow című játékhoz, amihez a idehaza megjelent dobozos változatból lettek a fájlok kinyerve. Csak a 'Dobozos' változattal lett tesztelve, de működnie kell más forrásból származó verziókkal is, (egyéb dobozos változatok vagy jövőbéli digitális változatokhoz, ha elérhetővé válik). Az archívumot a pcgw jelszó védi.

      This is a hack by Jackfuste which allows for widescreen resolutions to display properly instead of being stretched, additionally UI elements are unstretched and sit in the corners, and other 2D elements are centered, however loading screen graphics are stretched.  This fix was downloaded from this forum:
      https://www.wsgf.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=32562
      All credit goes to Jackfuste, I am merely uploading a mirror.  This was tested on a cracked retail version of the game, it is unknown if it will also work on a Windows XP system using StarForce protection.
