1)Install the game

2)Download and install 1.1 patch

3)Start the game and IF it crashes or causing problems to the follow:

4)Right click on the shortcut and type on the "Target" ("C:\Program Files (x86)\2K Games\BioShock\Builds\Release\Bioshock.exe" -nointro) To skip the intros.

5)Now go to the compatibility tab and check on the box "Run this program in compatibility mode for " and choose Vista Service Pack 2

6)Run the game and if it works go to the options and change your graphics,gameplay,buttons, etc. Save your settings and exit the game.

7)Now go to the compatibility mode again and choose this time Windows XP Service Pack 3.

8)Run the game and have some fun

Questions: Why I have to change the compatibility mode from Vista Service Pack 2 to Windows XP Service Pack 3 when the game is already working ?

Answer: In the Vista Service Pack 2 the game works BUT it missing sounds. Best example is when you choose any option in the menu you always hear a sound.
As for the Windows XP Service Pack 3 the game works again but it crushes or it will become a black screen if you change your settings, especially the graphics.
