    wont work

    I just got home with the game. I have
    AMD 1.5 Ghz.
    384 megs of ram
    ati radeon 9000 64 mb.
    sound blaster live 5.1

    I have updated video and audio drivers and my directx version to 9.0b. I load the game, see the eidos sign and the other beginning things but when it gets to the red line loading across the screen before the title screen the monitor clicks on and off and then crashes to my desktop. I should have more than enough power to play the game but for some reason it wont work. Any help would be appreciated cause I'd hate to miss out on this game.

    I am haveing the same problem as efrite whent he red progress bar after the into sequence is about 3/4 of the way across the screen the game hangs for a few seconds and then the screen goes black and I get a message box saying VPU Recover has reset my graphics accelerator. According to ATI the VPU Recover utility is a feature in t here newers drivers that reset your graphics card after a critical error to prevent your pc from crashing and I have tried every troubleshooting step I could find ont here website but so far nothing has worked. My system specs are:

    Pentium 4 1.8GHz
    768 MB DDR RAM
    ATI Radeon 9000 Pro 128MB

    I have tried every avalible screen resolution, color setting, refresh rate, and have updated to the newest version of the Catalyst driver and Direct X. So far I have had no luck hopefully somebody can find a way around this.

    what about Windows ME

    the system specs said Windows 98SE/2000/XP

    does that include Windows ME or is it under 98SE?

    I also have the crash as the red loading line crawls across the screen. I have to admit, I'm quite irked that I just spent 50 bucks on a game I can't even play. If there's no fix for this within the 7 days that I have to return it, I'll take it back. This makes me angry.

    You could try what I did to get it to work. It sounds similar to my problem, but your game loaded farther than mine before it crashed. Go to START>RUN>"dxdiag". Go to all three of the "Sounds" tabs, and turn the audio acceleration down to the lowest setting. It worked for me, and like I said, I had a similar problem.

    nope nothing. Still doesn't work. There are a lot of people having this same problem. Anyone with radeon 8500, 9000, and 9200 cards seem to have this problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    So I tried installing it on my little brother's computer and it runs just fine. He has an identical computer to mine, except his mother board is a MSI and mines a Asus Nforce2 board. His video card is also different. He has a Nvidia bargain card and I have a Radeon 9200. My computer has always been much faster than his on every game we play (including morrowind, I can use pixel shaders and he can't). So why does it work on his comp and not mine? I think it's the video card, except eidos claimed that mine would work in the readme and on the box. So the fact that it doesn't work really makes me mad. I want this patched right now. Get on it. Their employees shouldn't have ANY breaks/time off until this is fixed. I want them working around the clock to fix it. This is unnexusable. It's just as bad as Ubisoft forgetting to put cd-keys in the Australian release of Pandora Tomorrow. I will remember this next time I'm buying a game and I have to choose between an Eidos game or one made by a more reliable company.

    Wow, I'm shocked at how many problems people are having.

    Thankfully, the game loaded right up and hasn't had a single issue yet. The performance isn't as good as I would like (a constant 60 fps like HM2), but the post processing effects are so incredibly good that it is worth losing a few frames (though it never drops below 30 fps, thankfully).

    Well, I suppose I did have ONE issue. EAX was responsible for a nice 10-15 fps drop. While it sounded nice, disabling it is a better option.

    I'm just shocked at how many issues people are having.

    if my processor only p2 550 then ram is 512 then graphic card is 64 mb gf2.... can i play hitman contract

    No you need at least a P3 800 MhZ or better cpu. Your graphics card is also bunk. In fact, if I were you, I'd throw that computer out the window and make a new one.

    Hitman: Contracts can also be run in Windows 2000/XP with at least 192MB RAM and PIII 800MHz. I've already tried this trick and it works fine!

    yeah you can able play hitman contracts on your computer ..... mine computer running fine with this game, but make sure you get download hitman contracts demo to test on your computer first.

    mine computer is:
    Windows 2000
    P][ 400mhz
    160mb ram
    geForce2 MX 400 ~ 32mb

    it running fine to me but some levels can get slower a bit too. I beat Hitman: contracts two days ago. If get running so slower and you can change graphics options low level as you can.

    p.s. I bet your computer get little faster than mine

    The developers' official site claims that hitman 3 is much faster than h2 due to improved coding. My ass! It doesn't look any better than h2, but eats 10x the resources compared to h2. My pc:

    p3 550
    256 ram
    680 virtual ram
    gforce 1 pro 32 ram ddr

    I had to switch absolutely everything off, and it's still slow! (resolution set: 1024x768). Esp. the weather effects and the lamp lights eat cpu like hell.

    If you play silent assasin-style, then it doesn't matter much, but if you prefer shooting, it sux, cause pc slows down when aiming at enemies (esp. when using automatic weapons, like uzis with many bullets shot at once - my pc dies, I guess it's trying to calculate the bullets' trajectory and doesn't manage, because there are too many bullets flying at the same time). Anyway, aiming on a slow computer is a pain in the ass, cause the cursor gets really slow and falls behind the mouse movement

    Unhappy System Requirements/Graphics

    Well, I have a 2.00 GHz AMD Athlon processor, 512 MB RAM, 80 GB hard drive, 64 MB RAM NVIDIA GeForce4 MX graphics card, and Windows XP. When I play Hitman:Contracts, it doesn't matter what setting I have the graphics, or sound on, some of the characters are deformed. They have these triangular extensions on their hands, or on the back of their heads, or their chins; and sometimes the terrain goes black or peach and deformed. What I want to know is, is it my graphics card doing this? It supports DX-9. If not, than what can I do to fix this? I had the same problem with the demo version of Hitman:Silent Assassin but I downloaded the full ripped version and it was fine. What do you all think?
    Thanks~Jaik

  22. #47
    can I run it with this card 3d Prophet 9600 256 mb ram ? that's my question about the rest of computerconfig I am sure that hitman contracts will work i think this is my computerconfig : p4 1,80 ghz , 256 mb ddr-ram , win xp home, maxtor 40 gb @ 7200 rpm.

    thanks in advance.

  23. #48
    nobody?

  24. #49
    I have GeForce 4 MX 420 and the game is WONDERFUL at the HIGHEST display settings. How can this be?

    DOWNLOAD THE PATCH!

    It's right on the upper thread, and at

    www.hitmancontracts.net

    that will probably do it.

    If not, download catalyst 4.6 from www.ati.com
