I just want to know if Steam has contacted Ubi, the Steam version is missing the dx10 options, multiplayer and co-op is not functional, dump file errors. Can anyone shed any light on this situation? There is a lot of trash talking going on, I just want some answers with out being sh!++y. So my questions:
1. Ubi: has Steam contacted you guys about selling a non working game? Have they made you aware of the problems with their release of YOUR game? They are making themselves and Ubi look bad because no one will address any of the issues.
2. No dx10 gameplay with the steam version, missing the .exe file.
3. Multiplayer and co-op not functional. Dump file errors.....help? Ideas? Anything?

UBI know about the DX10 problems with Steam, and "are looking into it".

hopefully they also know about the MP problems, but no statement has been made

It's going to be a week now and still no fix?! Game plays perfectly in DX9, can't even play it in DX10; and no co-op and multiplayer yet.... anytime now.....

DirectX 10 now seems to download (you have to run the executable from the steamapps folder as far as I can tell).

No word on the Multiplayer and other problems but at least we are seeing some progress.

I just want it fixed, I know these things take time (I guess) but an actual statement from the company would make me feel a little better.

Ignore my last post. DirectX 10 file that it downloaded was just the DirectX 9 file renamed. How stupid.

Yeah, I just checked that out too. There was a file from some mirror site that allowed you to download the dx10 .exe files but I'm not messing around with all of that, and I don't trust the things that aren't released by the software company. It just sucks because I actually really like this game a lot, but the fact that it's missing ALL of the mp ability and the dx10 options makes me furious to pay as much for this game that doesn't work how they stated it would, almost seems like false advertising. I just want it fixed, I want to keep liking this game.

I feel you, I'm in the same boat. In fact this is my second run through it somehow. I was a part of the whole failure known as Age of Conan and now here I am again with another failure with almost the same problems... no DirectX 10 that was promised and gimped multiplayer.

Fixed.

Steam games in the US are more inline with retail prices. They may be a few bucks more but remember that Valve has to host this game and provide it to you every time you decide to...

A. Buy a new computer/play the game on a second computer.
B. Format your computer.
C. Uninstall the game and then come back to it a year later for nostalgia's sake.

In all these cases, you have to download the game using Valve's bandwidth to download it. So the few $$ extra is the added cost of convenience. I don't have to keep track of those blasted discs all over the place.

It may not be worth it for you because of your nationality but here in the United States, the price difference is usually no more than $5 and if you catch the games on sale (like the week long sale Ubisoft is doing right now steam) then you get an even better bargain. Better still, there is always a sale of some sort going on with Steam so if this weeks sale doesn't have what you want, next week might.

Conclusion: Steam is an awesome system.

Steam is good for the reasons you describe but you can't sell the game and many times the servers are down and in those times you CAN'T play...It's damn frustrating! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif And I really prefer a physical game not a digital, because I have the manual and the package which I love. And I take care of my discs so I dont worry for them to break or anything...These things steam cant offer...I hate steam sorry.

It's definitely not for everybody but you came in and made a blanket statement that nobody should ever buy from Steam, you had to have known someone was going to come along and tell you that you were wrong.
