I have the same problem on windows 7 x64, WTF??
Hey guys i had the same problem on my 32" TV here is the fix:

...this is how I solved it. I'm using windows 7
Went into my documents C:\Users\YOU\MyDocuments\Sniper - Ghost Warrior\out\Settings
there are 2 files here one called Audio, one video...and on my PC they are tagged as 'Screen Saver' and I cannot open them by clicking on them. word/wordpad/notepad something that can open txt, and find this file...(remember to open all types of document), and open the video file.
You will get a word document that looks like this (dont get scared by all this gobely goop, its not that difficult

!Monitor(i) // -1 primary monitor
!FSAA(i) // Full Screen AntiAliasing, 0 - none, higher is better
!TextureQuality(s) // VeryLow, Low, High
!Filtering(s) // Bilinear, Trilinear, Anisotropic, AnisotropicTrilinear
!Shadows(s) // Low, High
!VSync() // enable vertical sync
!MaterialQuality(i) // lower is better
!WaterQuality(i) // lower is better
!GrassQuality(i) // lower is better
!FXQuality(i) // higher is better
!FXFadeLevel(i) // 0-4 (lower is better)
!EnvQuality(s) // FullDynamic, RareDynamic, Static
!ShaderPath(i) // 0 - 1.1, 1 - 1.4, 2 - 2.0, 3 - 3.0, 4 - x360, 5 - 4.0, 6 - ps3
!PostProcess(s) // Simple, Normal
!DisplayDeviceType(i,f,f,f,f) //device type (LCD TV etc.): 0 - default
!Curves(s) // curves texure

DisplayDeviceType(0,0.000000,1.000000,1.000000,1.0 00000)

I changed 1 thing here for my 32" tv... I changed Resolution(1600,900) to Resolution(1280,720)
Then I saved the file...
Now game runs, and I can see the screen and the sound
Just change the resolution to what fits your screen or something native and then you can change it in game

Thanks To grahamgardener for this

I found the solution just go to C:\Users\YOU\MyDocuments\Sniper - Ghost Warrior\out\Settings and delete both files video.src and audio.src and enjoy!!

Sorry sollution not working.
TipStar11 Dec 28, 2012 @ 3:00am 
works for me

Tried this again, even with windows 1600x900 desktop resolution. Still the same problem and error.

Strange thing is that when i edit the video.scr file and start the game the settings are restored with other settings like the one i pasted into to file like stated in this topic.

installed it in my dual core laptop with older Nvidia GS9200 card. It works without any trouble. Framerate is low but i was able to play the first mission and get some achievments.

Problem may be related to ATI/AMD card. Maybe all the people with ATI/AMD have more trouble with this game.

Better than my experience. Whenever I start up the game this really sad excuse for a first person shooter comes up.
