Please pause the download for a few seconds and then resume. Usually this can help a bit if you are experiencing a really low download speed.

The Saboteur Not Launching

★ Novice

Like some many others on this form, I too am unable to launch The Saboteur on a new i7 multi-core processor.  After waiting for 50mins on the chat site for an Advisor, I was told to come here and post a message and that a developer would respond ASAP and correct this issue.  So here I am, posting and waiting (like the rest of the community) for the developers to fix the problem.

 

Such an amazing and beuatiful game being kept from enjoyiment by so many users for such silly bug!

So I also tried the patch with no luck. I can't get the process live long enough to set the CPU Affinity.

I also attempted launching using a command line to set the affinity but, the process still closes after a couple of seconds.

Hi,

 

I just bought "The Saboteur" as origin key on Amazon, when I activated the game in origin i accidentaly chose "german Version", I would like to download the UK version instead though. How can I change the Version?

I havent downloaded anything yet.

Best regards,
Steffen

 

 

 

Hallo,

 

ich habe gerade "The Saboteur" als origin Key auf Amazon gekauft, bei der aktivierung habe ich jetzt ausversehen auf "deutsche Version" geklickt. Ich hätte aber lieber die UK Version, da sie von der Athmosphäre besser sein soll. Wie kann ich das wieder ändern? Ich habe das Spiel noch nicht herunter geladen...

Gruß
Steffen
