Multiplayer works fine, singleplayer won't start up without an instant crash. Friend has 8800 GT, I have 9800. If anyone has a fix for this... well, post it.

Hey guys, i had this problem as well,I run a Dual screen setup. Turns out that the refresh rate and color quality have to be the same on BOTH monitor's. once i changed those setting i was straight in and enjoying it..

I have the same problem and I tried everything.
Driver updates, changing the refresh rate and compatibility mode.
I have come to the conclusion that I will probably have to wait for a patch.

I had probs with start up as well but fixed it by doing this -

go to the folder
Steamapps/Common/Bioshock 2/SP/Builds/Binaries
Then Run as Admin on the Bioshock2launcher.exe

should help some people
Am I the meanest? Sho'nuff! Am I the prettiest? Sho'nuff! Am I the baddest, mo-fo, low-down, around this town? Sho'nuff!
