Re: Syndicate (2012) Crashes on Launch

Thanks for the update. Windows 10 has a lot of problems with the older games, plus they removed the support for certain protections that they've considered potential security risks. This is one of the main reasons of why i buy my older games from GOG. Unfortunately, their library, despite being relatively big, doesn't cover everything. EA is present there with quite a few of the old hits, but i still hope for more (Syndicate 2012, too).

I do not work for EA and i am not associated with the company in any way. I am a player just like you, trying to help wherever i can.I will not answer to any unsolicited PM.

I have been going through my games and firing up some that I last played years ago, and Syndicate is my latest.

 

Initially I was having the same problem, but I solved it and thought I'd share my solution in case it helps others in the future.

 

The game was crashing on launch, but it loaded fine once I disconnected my second monitor. The other tips I've seen (compatibility with Windows 7, run it with admin permissions) didn't help at all. 

 

After that, it ran perfectly at 4K.

 

Hope this helps!
