Hi All

Just to let you all know we are aware of the issues some of you are experiencing with the multiplayer servers. This information has been fed back but sadly I don't currently have any new information for you.

If you wish to discuss the issue between yourselves or have any new information on the subject please post within this thread. If we can keep all discussion on the subject here it will make it much easier for me to track any ongoing issues.

I will update you all as soon as I have any information for you all

Thanks, ok then this will be the right communication channel between us the players and UBI.com.
I am sure the moderator can email or kindly ask those esponsible of the servers at least an estimate about when will be the servers running again!

Best Regards!

The problem is happening to every player I know, not just some of us! (You make this sound as if it is a minor issue)
The sad part is, many players have unistalled, reinstalled, changed IP addresses, completely reformatted their hard drives, and tried many other fixes because they believed this to be a problem on their end.
This is clearly an Ubisoft server issue and I have to conclude that:

1: Ubisoft doesn't have the technical people with the proper knowledge to fix this problem.
2: Ubisoft won't take the time to fix this problem!
3: Ubisoft just plain doesn't care about their player base or whether the games they produce work or not!
4: All of the above!

I was able to log in early this morning, but I have been locked out for the past 3 hours with the famous Ubisoft "Operation Failed" message ... Again!!!

You sure can't blame it on overloaded servers.
There are few servers and few players ... Last time I was able to check!

One of our clan members tried that and tho it may work a couple of time's i honestly think it's random and just pure luck as it hasn't worked for anyone else.

The hours of my downtime usually start after 1pm Aussie time. Yesterday i played for around two hours and then logged out of multiplayer and logged back in to see... i was still able to get back in, but after logging out again to have some lunch, i came back and got "Operation failed". I was not able to get back in at all yesterday. I tried this morning and no problems. So i don't know but i hope this is all sorted out soon.

Thankyou for getting back to us, this thread will be easier to follow, than the other 50 all about the same topic.

I have had one person tell me that he and his four friends have a quick fix too. What they do is when they get the message "Operation failed" all they do is go back and bring up LAN, when they see the screen with no LAN's they go back and try multiplayer online and generally it works, though it may take up to four goes at doing this. (maybe random, and no use at all)

I have been in contact with ms-kleaneasy and she seems to genuinely want to help, i am going to give her my full support with this ongoing situation and hope that it is resolved as quickly as possible. SCE has had issue's with servers since the new patch and this has taken a considerable lenght of time to be sorted out. Unfortunately these situations cannot be rushed let's just all pull our heads together in this thread and try to offer updated responses that may help resolve the situation.

Thankyou

I know this problem isn't your fault, but you are the only one we have to vent our concerns since Ubisoft doesn't respond to any problems.
I was away for a 5 days and just returned Feb. 8.
I have been able to log in and also run a server with few problems. There are still many bugs, but Ubisoft isn't going to fix those when they can charge $49.99 for Vegas 2 and get paid for their patches.
Again, we do appreciate your efforts in solving the server problems.
No recent posts here is a good sign! (at least for now)

I assume then by the length of time that it takes for them to fix things that UBI's employees don't have email. They must have sent a small puppy with a note tied around it's collar with a bright red ribbon.

Well, here we are again!!
I knew it was too good to be true!

Ubisoft servers went down again at 8:15 ET (Florida, USA)
Everyone I know lost connection and can't connect.

This also happened a couple of days ago but didn't last too long, so didn't report it.

Sure would be nice if UBI could find a solution that lasts more than a few day!!

On a positive note: We got to play for almost 10 minutes before the server crashed!

This sure makes me want to run right out and buy Vegas 2 as soon as it is released!

OK, lets not waste another good weekend by not having an awake UBI employee who can restart the master server -- "The operation was canceled because it took too much time. Please try again later." The problem started about 9:45PM PST.

The Ubisoft Master server was down all day Saturday and was still down at mid-night.
I had several players check many times during the day and night and no one could log in.

Does anyone (Mod?) know why this happens on a regular basis?

At least the server was up for nearly 2 weeks this time before it crashed.

I just checked and the server is back up, but there are now only 11 game servers running on story and hunt.
That compares to 41 just 2 nights ago!
I guess it knocked everyone off and most just gave up trying to get back on. (I know I did)

Is Ubisoft working on this issue, or do they just temporarily fix the problem as it comes up?

Will Ubisoft add new and better servers when Vegas 2 is released, or are we going to be stuck with these same old unreliable servers??

Oh! BTW! I couldn't log into the forums either Saturday to post this problem!
(Others also tried)
Might it have been by design so we couldn't post the problem, or is this server somehow connected to the Master server?

Mr.Hanky2005
03-02-2008, 08:01 AM
All of Ubisoft's servers were down yesterday. At this point, I do not know why.

Contrary to your thoughts, there is no conspiracy against you. The forums were not shut down so you could not "report the problem".

Lethal1940
03-02-2008, 08:36 AM
Thanks Mr. Hanky,
It was just a curious question since they both went down about the same time.
The forum site wouldn't come up for quite some time, and after it did, I couldn't log in.

Thanks for your response .. sure hope someone from Ubisoft finds the problem with the master server before it goes down again.

Well, the servers have been up for 5 days now and are usually only down for a few hours when they do go down.

It is very frustrating if you are in the middle of a game and that happens though.

If you can get your game running, you will be able to play most of the time.

And maybe, by some miracle, Ubisoft will actually find a solution one day to keep their servers running or maybe even provide backup servers.
Naaaa ... that likely won't happen but we can always wish!!

Besides, if UBI fixed the servers and fixed all of the bugs in the game, we wouldn't have anything to complain about and this forum would be boring!!

Yesterday I helped my oldest son build a computer and installed Vegas.
Everything went fine and it even accepted the key, then we were unable to connect to Ubisofts registration server to create a new account. We tried on 4 computers and all failed, so he couldn't log in and play last night. (We tried for several hours) We also went to Ubisofts web site and tried to register there, but no luck!

We did setup a 4 player LAN and played for several hours without a problem.

This morning, he was finally able to access the server, create an account and can now login and play online. He lives 150 miles away so now we will be able to play Vegas on my online server.

Why does Ubisoft have so many problems with all of their servers on such a regular basis?

Plus there are many players in this forum with many different problems that never seem to be addressed by Ubisoft.

How hard would it be for someone from Ubisoft to take a little time and address these problems?

It would go a long way toward improving player relations and attitudes.

We played last night from about 7:30 EST until well after mid-night and they were running at that time.

Looks like they were up for about 2 weeks again before going down this time ... unless they were down when I wasn't on and on one here reported it.

I guess we will just have to get used to Ubisoft Server going down on a regular basis.

It seems like it happens a lot on weekends for some reason!!

The last time it was down for over 12 hours on a Saturday.

Just got kicked out of the master server at exactly 6:07 EST and now can't log back in.
Same old message "The operation was cancelled because it took too much time .. etc)

Called 2 other players and had them try to log in and they get the same message.

Will this problem ever be resolved???

If Ubisoft can't handle the little traffic left from Vegas, how are they going to handle the increased traffic from Vegas 2??

It sure would be nice if they could find a solution to this ever recurring nightmare!!

On a possitive note: It isn't affecting a lot of players any longer, because there aren't that many left!!

I had just answered another post in another thread, and there were 43 total servers with 108 players in all modes at 6:00 PM EST at the time of that post.

"we forgot to pay the electricity bill, so you'll have to wait while we get round to sorting it out"

"We're still using windows 98... please be patient"

"Some fool spilt his brew into the server, please wait while we remove all sticky residue"

"Oh wait, we don't want you to play right now. Support personnel are watching porn, and your game was slowing it down. We will recconect yor game in a few minutes after we've wiped up the mess"

The really bad thing is, all dedicated game servers got dumped and most haven't been set back up as yet.

It least they didn't stay down for as long as they have many times in the past!

You know why no one else is hosting dedicated servers. Because of UBI shutting down their **** and the dedicated text based files are pure garbage. No one wants to "baby-sit" their servers 24/7.

I'm sure they go down much more often than what is reported in this forum, because most players wouldn't take the time or maybe don't know how to report!!

There should be a Sticky Thread in this PC forum with a big warning message concerning the Ubisoft server problem, and list all of the possible messages that are received when the server is down!

Many players have made changes to their game files, computers, routers, and other major changes including full re-format and new install of their OS and drivers because they think there is something wrong on their end..

Do not make changes to your game files, computer or anything else!!!

I would hope that UbiSoft would seriously reevaluate their server situation and try and at least fix it, as it sits right now Vegas (after release) doesn't even hold a candle to CoD4, and yet I find all Rainbow games far better than CoD based games. Don't get me wrong, their fun, and simple, Rainbow is for the thinking gamer.

If they bypassed the log in there could be a theft issue I understand that. BUT they have to and I mean HAVE to figure something out quickly or that companies going to hit the wall with it's customer base leaving.

It is still fun to play, especially in Co-op ... when the Ubisoft servers are up!!
Most of the bugs and glitches can be delt with, although some people are still unable to play.

The servers are up much of the time, but it just seems that Ubisoft really doesn't care about it's player base, and never responds to issues posted here.
They could go a long way with customer relations with an occassional response to at least let us know they are aware of the many issues, and are making an attempt to do something about them.

I doubt that will happen though because nothing has been resolved in months, including the continued issues in Vegas 2!!

Ubisofts server crashed again while we were playing and were down for about 4 hours.
We all tried to log back in, but would get "Starting Network Service" then after a short time the game would crash to desktop.

All 4 players got the same result.

We have Teamspeak so we can talk to each other to see what is going on with the server.

During that period, I wasn't able to log in or post in these forums either, although I could access them.

With Vegas 2 shipping in 2 days, this is really encouraging to see that we are in for more of the same!!

Just logged in to the master server, found a server running, played for about 10 minutes and the Ubisoft server crashed again.

It is back up again, but no servers running as yet.

I am normally a decent enough chap and quite reasonable (trust me you will have to take my word for it lol). I find this reason slowly slipping away in the face of what I view as corporate SWINDLING. Stop making us pay for your incompetence and FIX this problem. I work full time. I get SOME time occasionally to chill with my friends on Teamspeak once or twice a week and what do we find when we try to log in? "Sorry we are incapable of finding our own asses with both hands" This is unnacceptable. We require you to cease procrastinating and engage your brains with the intent of making this fantastic game something other than an excercise in frustration. If I was Tom Clancy (God bless him) I would sue the living sh*t out of you for giving me a bad name with such shoddy service.

Indeed. Any ideas O Ubi-Ones? My personal favourite (considering three of us just managed a whole 12 minutes before we got kicked from the day-release servers) is that Ubi are based in an ancient and sinister castle where Pickles, the magic poltergeist monkey, is having one of his 'special' tantrums and is rampant in the dusty cobwebbed room of wires and server thingamebobs.

Just a thought.

No point buying Vegas 2 if it gets the same low rent servers. Prove me wrong Ubisoft by fixing this one and MAYBE I'd consider investing in the sequel. Still far too much to be done on the first one for me and my pals ta very much.

I think a big reason for the login server is to validate the cdkey to make sure no one has HA><0red the software.

But seriously... My friend and I have enjoyed a lot of Vegas2. We haven't touched Ubisoft games since Ravenshield and Vegas2 was a pleasure to play. However after going through the coop story 6 times we wanted to try the Vegas1 coop.

I'll echo what many others have said. It's fun if it works. JEEZUS!!! The server stability is terrible. The first time we tried Vegas1 the host machine crashed after the first map. Then the maplist screw up which took us 45 minutes to figure out after we got back in... Now we are getting about 30-45 minutes of play time before the game server crashes and we sit looking on the "logging in" screen which eventually becomes "taken too long"....

I've read through several thread of Ubi sucks, fix coop, etc... I had a hard time believing it was that bad due to Vegas2. But Vegas1... yea... It really is that bad.

So chalk this up as another "Please fix the server" post and stop the login check and allow direct IP connections.

Fine, then validate and move on.

This requirement that you need to have a CONSTANT connection to the login server in order to play is totally and utterly INEXCUSABLE.

Saturday June 14 .. 10:20 PM EST

Tried to host a server with 3 other players for the first time in over a month .. and as usual the Ubisoft servers are down.

I have checked the servers from time to time just to see if they were up and many times they aren't.

Vegas 2 servers are working so what is the big problem with Ubisoft not being able to fix this server?????

They don't want to fix it though do they? They want everyone to go out and buy RSV2, so they can forget about this botched abortion of a game, sell everyone more crap and make even more money..

Ubi don't seem to realise that more people would buy RSV2 if they got this one to work properly first...

The Vegas 2 forums are full of the same negative comments concerning problems with that game.

I will say that the Vegas 2 master servers have fewer problems than Vegas 1 has experienced.
Too bad they can't get the problems in the game corrected.

An Ubisoft manager did post a very vague message that there will be some exciting news by the end of June but no clue as to what it would be.
That post was locked when the response wasn't as expected.

You can check on some of what is going on here, and maybe make a decision on Vegas 2 after waiting to see what Ubisoft has to offer in there exciting news. (Promised by the end of June)

I just decided to check the Vegas 1 servers out of curiousity.
They are up at the moment.
There are a total of 7 servers running with a total of 19 players .. in all modes .. for the entire world!!

We predicted this would happen a few months ago!!
Ubisoft really knows how to kill a game!!!

Unless Ubisoft delivers on their promise for Vegas 2, it won't be far behind!!

Another dead game!!

After reading your post Lethal I though I'd give it a shot...

I logged on...

3 servers running, with a total of 12 players worldwide... (PB and non PB)

I created a game...

After a couple of minutes someone joined the game...

After about 30 seconds of play... "DD*whatever he was called* has left the game..."

2 seconds later... I didn't get the "disconnected from server" this time, I crashed to desktop with an error mesage that I've never seen before... "RSV has encountered a problem" instead... (first time I've ever seen an error message for RSV, it usually just crashes to desktop without a word)

Now I can't log back in...

1505hrs GMT Servers down? Operation was canelled because this game is a shoddily made POS that should have never made it to the shelves, even with all 6 updates... I want my money back... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

All last week the servers went on and off i would say at least 5 times a day with a minimum reboot uptime of half an hour between each one. This is incredibly frustrating as the game itself is quite fun to play, the 4 player co-op story is what really drew me in over the one in R6V2.

I have never been on game servers that have been this bad. Normally server stability is the first thing game companies fix for online games. (And i have been playing online since HL1 days)

I mean what is the point of have a dedicated server option if the main servers die all the time! I am not surprised many people running dedicated servers give-up!

Also i was playing around on Solder of Fortune Payback servers (which by many peoples accounts is a horrible sequel) and you don't need to authorise or be in constant connection to the developers servers. It`s gameplay is crude and simple but it has rock stable server and never crashes. I had a quick look today and it had more servers and people playing that R6V! (11 Servers/62 People)

Is this saying that SOF3 is a better game than R6V?

Maybe Ubisoft doesn`t give a toss anymore since R6V PC is now a budget title, but that would be a poor excuse since SOF3 in comparision was released AS a budget title.

Dude, Farcry has more people playing it than this heap of dung... and that's a few years older than SOF... Unreal Tournament 2004 has more people playing online than either... The other unreals I'm not sure about, I've not played them since ut2k4...

The only reason I even tried hosting Saturday night is because my grandson was here and we wanted to play with a couple of other relatives online.
I have 2 legal copies of Vegas 1 so we decided to give it a try. We have done this before some time ago.

That works pretty well as the other computer on my LAN actually connects through my LAN and gives a ping under 10 even though he has to go to multiplayer/online to find my server.
That doesn't lag the game and the other players.

Just a thought if anyone ever wants to host with someone else at your home and still play online, that it works this way.
(But you do need 2 keys)

But then .. of course, that depends on if the Ubisoft server is up .. and will stay up long enough to play.

So after so long time they still haven't fixed the problem. I also get that problem when I try loging in on some servers but also when I'm playing I can get disconnected. Got 50/10 in cable so the ping is usually around 45-50. If they can't fix the problem. They will lose a buying costumer.

I don't know that the issue is that Ubisoft can't fix the problem .. it may be that they just don't care and won't take the time to fix it.

I would assume they have someone with the proper knowledge to fix and keep an authentication server running.
Or, at least provide backup servers.

As you can see by this thread .. the problem has been around for at least a year and half, so it doesn't seem likely that Ubisoft is going to do anything about it!!

One reason for ubisoft not fixing the server, could be an indirect way of killing off the game completely by disrupting online game play,

Played for around 1hr had several players in my game as i was host, and offline it went all players lost connection, some 10mins later it's back online, so i launch another game within 5mins it's again offline,i give up playing, for now, others have given up permanently which is what i believe ubi want,

LOL ricey. Seen you and Demented on-line last evening (U.S.Time). Must have been a bad night for you guys. The UBI Servers are a joke these days and games are getting harder to play each and every day. I don't give UBI much credit for anything,but I am hoping they are smart enough not to intentinaly crash the master server.

A couple of friends and I even went back loaded and tried to play the first Vegas. I could join server for about five mins. before crashing out,my other friend couldn't even join the server. So I guess the problem is throughout the UBI Server.From what friends have told me the same problems occure with Splinter Cell Conviction. I am glad I didn't waste the $60.00 on that one.

It is really a shame,but there just doesn't seem to be any real good releases comming out on the market these days.I have bought several that are just sitting gathering dust. But at least some you can play till you decide to leave instead of a ****ty server telling you OOOOOOPS you are done playing.

One of your countymen sent me Raven Shied Complete (Raven Shield,Athena Sword,and Iron Wrath) hoping we could join up and play. I have spent hours and still can't even get game to launch. I posted on other forum about problems but got no responces so I am trying to sqeeze it in here for help........lol. Well now that I have my blood pressure up I better sign off.
