I experienced the same issue (Graham walking of the screen - Game crashes). Tried with WinXP and with Win7 - different resolutions, quality and drivers. I want to try the Episode 1-3 version but the ones you can find a link for does only download a few MBs before breaking up. Can someone reupload the Episode 1-3 version of the game or point me to a working link for it?

Never mind - I managed to download it using JDownloader. After exchanging the .exe file from the Ep1-Ep4 package with the one from the Ep1-Ep3 package I managed to watch that final cutscene AND even starting Ep4 without a problem. For those of you who don't have the .exe file from the Ep1-Ep3 package anymore I reuploaded it here

[Link Removed]

Just rename your old .exe file from The Silver Lining and use this instead. After that restore your savegame from Episode3 and play as usual. At least for me it worked and the .exe file is only a few megabytes.

While we appreciate the advice, we can't really allow random folks to put up files that modify the game. Both for general safety reasons and due to our license deal with Activision. Thanks for the tips though!

I understand that you cannot jeopardize your licence agreement but I don't understand why it is no problem to post a link to the whole Ep1-Ep3 package (that is the link where I had gotten the file in the first place)

http://www.postudios.com/blog/forum/index.php?topic=11310.msg334376#msg334376

but it is not all right to post a single file out of this package (to reduce download time). It would be nice if you could explain that to me.

But if it really is not allowed to post a single file for me please consider to do it yourself (you don't need to use this file if it is too suspicious - use the ones from your own link posted above if you cannot trust me) and call it fix or patch or whatever because there are many people (as me) who weren't able to finish ep3 and this really helped me (tried it several times). The game imo is pretty good and has a great story and it would be so sad if some people couldn't play it probably even if there is a solution for the problem.

Simply put - we have no way of knowing that the single file in question was not modified by the person posting it. Our license deal also requires that we retain control of all distribution of the game and its files, we can't have third parties distributing all or part of TSL in any way.

Thank you for you answer which I totally respect and understand. So I promise to not post any files from your game again.

But as I stated before: please consider (whenever you have the time to do so) to upload the tsl.exe file contained in the Ep1-Ep3 package from your (not mine) link again. It saves download time for the ones with the problem, it is the only file needed to fix this problem and you can be sure that it still is your unmodified file. I was very happy after I managed to fix this problem using your link which has unfortunately a very bad connection (so I had to use a download helper after several connection breaks to help me get it). Oh - and thanks again for this great game and all your work you still invest in it.

I managed to track down the original TSL Episode 3 installer, extracted out the exe file, and added it to the download page with instructions. Hopefully this workaround allows the final cutscene to work for everyone now. Thank you for the suggested fix, MarkoH01! I apologize for not seeing this post sooner.
