HITMAN 2 - Game Update 2.13
Here are the release notes for game update 2.13: https://www.ioi.dk/hitman-2-game-update-2-13/

One thing we don't mention in the release notes is the 0x80000003 issue, we know about this, it’s tracked, conversations are ongoing internally at IOI and also with our friends at Nvidia to work towards a solution.

Of course, we want to address it as soon as possible and when we have something to share, we’ll let you know.

23/01: update: 2:30 PM CET, we'll release a small update where we've fixed a minor issue with placeholder text and a missing briefing video for previous Elusive Targets.

that would be you downloading the legacy pack because you didn't have half the game installed

It only took IOI two months to finally acknowledge this bug. Good job!

Hi, apparently there are many different reasons for this error.
What I posted in another thread helped 2 people (myself and other user) - now I don't face a crash EVERYTIME I start or load the game, but had one crash in 2 days. In case you guys missed it and may be of any help - here is my original post:

May be absolutely not related but...

There was an update today, which I installed.
Then I started the game and went to options, to switch back from Windowed mode (which I wanted to test after seeing sb's comment) back to fullscreen. After doing that I launched the benchmark (Mumbai).

Five seconds into the benchmark - it crashed. Like I expected anytthng else...

I started wondering... With 1060/6 and 12 giga ram I had no issues with any game before and only with 200 mega virtual memory (on ssd...). But what if Hitman2 has really bad memory management? Or it's the system that has the problem when the game encounters one? According to some sources - going low on page file could lead to some problems with saving logs, etc, so maybe that's also 80....3 error issue?

Went to PC settings and switched the virtual memory to 2gb. Launched the benchmark. It passed with no issues. Hmm.. Switched the virtual memory to 1giga... Launched the benchmark. Passed again.
Hmmm...

I set the range for the page file: 200-1024 mega but not on the C ssd... Guess what? Benchmark passed again without crashing. I launched the game, loaded Ark save which was always crashing. And... Big surprise - no crash. I loaded saves for the past hour without any issue (so far), around 15-20 times - no single problem, while just yesterday it was crashing every single time.

I know it doesn't prove anything, but just small update on the subject I started. And I'm getting back to the final mission. At last!

thx for update and official thread !
:cozybethesda:
Why can I not download the Snow Festival? I own Hitman 2 and apparently can play this for free, but whenever I click 'Play this game' in the Steam desktop or in-game browser, it simply shows me two options: yes I have Steam or Install Steam. I have Steam already, but clicking this option does nothing (it hangs). Any help greatly appreciated, thank you!

Edit: This thread here may be of some help:

I wish Steam was just simpler, it's always been such a faff.

It had been acknowledged nearly two months ago, and was being worked on by nvidia as well. Considering how many issues the game had which were nvidia related (and fixed) it's no surprise that the focus on tracking down the issue was with the drivers themselves

Now that the majority of driver side issues has been fixed, nvidia now claims this specific bug is game side, together they are still trying to solve it

Between the holiday season and the nvidia driver issues it's no surprise that some of the problems are taking a bit longer than expected

How about the 0xc0000005 error? I think it's also linked to crashing a minute or two after opening a save game.
Good, because the game is unplayable in its current state.

This issue is *NOT* nvidia only - I have it since the latest update with a Vega 64.

So maybe someone can fill me in is the Snow Festival in Hokkaido mission part of the HITMAN™ 2 - Expansion Pass that came with the Gold edition because if this is part one of two that's really weak and not worth the extra $50 IMHO.

I was expecting a whole new level.
