Disable all the background applications and then try to launch the game. If the issue persists, disable your firewall and anti-virus program.

Mouse Issues

If you have any special software fop your mouse then you will have to disable or uninstall it. If you are still facing problems then disable the Mouse Acceleration.

Blue, Black Screen Crash

If your screen crashes and the system restarts there must be an hardware issue so check for the exact cause. Be sure that you avoid over-clocking. Run only Sniper Elite 3 while playing it. Update all the corresponding drivers. If the problem persists disable or uninstall the MSI Afterburner, FRAPS or anyother program which might result in over-clocking.


Turn off Anti-Aliasing, Super Sampling, Tessellation and VSnyc and run the game on low settings. The key to solve graphic problem is updating the graphics drivers.

Sound Issues

Check for redistributables like DirectX, .Net Framework, and Visual C++ for now. And as always check for updates for your drivers.
