ATI users reporting Dishonored crashes on PC, workaround discovered

Dishonored

By on October 12, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Some ATI users are reporting that Dishonored not only isn’t working for them, but crashes out leaving an exceptionally long error message about unavailable binaries.

If this is happening to you, you’re in luck — a solution has been found. Right-clicking on Dishonored in Steam, selecting ‘Launch Properties’ and adding -windowed to the end will force the game to boot up in a window and — apparently — seems to be working to stop the crashing.

The solution was suggested by a Bethesda moderator, who also advised that “I can’t say I know what it means or what the problem is, but maybe someone else does. The devs are checking this forum so they’ll be aware at least”.

If you still aren’t sure about Dishonored, why not read our massive review? There’s a code at the end to get it for $45 that expires today, as well!

Playing in windowed also stops the horrible stuttering I get with Skyrim.

 

6950s Crossfire here not a problem, just lucky i guess

 

Yep, running it with Dual Radeon 7970′s without a problem.

 

4870 running without a problem, 11 hours played.

Windowed turns off xfire right?

Running it on 2×7850′s here, no problems sofar…

 

I’m running a 6990; When i first opened the game i had a flicker in the menu screen and some low resolution, changing the resolution fixed this for me.

Anyone remember the day when PC games were shipped without needing gigs of patchs and plagued with issues. I do 99% of games before the year 2000.

It stopped the day the first buggy as hell game was released, and the financial dep’t noticed it sold equally well to a polished one. Why pay for quality control if people will buy it regardless.

That SiN game comes to mind as the first blatant offender, and it sold ludicrously well despite being unplayable for years after release.

 

Crossfire HD6950 2gb here, not a single issue through the whole game.
