Hello,
Please uninstall your version of Uplay. Then download the latest version here- http://uplay.ubi.com/en-US/

After it installs please trying entering in your CD Key.

If it still doesn't work after that then contact Support. http://support.ubisoft.com/

Yeah, requirements are met and the latest drivers are downloaded. IDK, he says the game is crashing right when the menu music starts to play. Anyone had an issue like this with this game or previous AC games? I wanna exhaust all possible solutions before referring him to Ubisoft Support, which takes days to respond.

Hi,


My game is suffering from serious lags when in cities in Assassin's Creed III on PC. When the camera aims up to the sky or down to the floor, the game does not lag anymore in the cities. Everywhere else in the game, the game runs perfectly, really smooth. I'm pretty sure you can release a patch to optimize cities areas. It does not make sense that everything runs perfectly except for cities.


I'm running on:
Processor AMD A6-3420M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics, 1500 MHz, 4 Core, 4 logical processors

Will you release a patch to optimize???

I'm seeing heavy artifacting in the snow, concentrated around animal/human tracks in the snow, but the graphical glitches are widespread, but only, it seems, in snow woods. I'm running Windows 8 64-bit, GTX 690, forceware version 310.61. I would post a screenshot, but until Fraps updates to a Windows 8 friendly version, I'm out of luck. I tried reducing the anti-aliasing but it didn't seem to improve anything.

Problem solved for my brother. It was a faulty AC3SP.EXE!!!!!

I've been having one aggravating issue all day: random crashes to the desktop in single-player (haven't tried multi-player yet). On my machine, the game runs fast and fluid at almost maxed-out settings (AA set to normal) but will at random points just close to the desktop in the space of about a second with the only error message being the usual and unhelpful "Assassin's Creed 3 has stopped working" shown by Windows. Uplay always seems to think that the game closed gracefully and displays window showing the summary of achievements earned. The time it takes for the crash-to-desktop to occur ranges from 2 minutes to 3 hours, and only occurs when actually in-game (menu never has a problem) and occurs regardless of whether I'm playing as Connor or Desmond.

My hardware:
HP ENVY 15 Laptop (mid 2012 model)
- Intel Core i7 3610QM (4 cores, 8 threads)
- 6gb DDR3 RAM
- AMD Radeon 7750m (installed drivers are Catalyst 12.11 Beta 8, released 11/15, latest available)
- Windows 8 Pro 64-bit
- Game installed via Steam

Also crashing to desktop in single-player. Runs for about 5 seconds to a few minutes at time then AC3SP.exe has stopped responding. Like cullensadler, I too am running on Catalyst 12.11 Beta 8 drivers. I think that is the culprit here. I didn't have any problems until after I restarted for the first time since the installation of the game. That's too bad, since the Beta 8 drivers were giving much better performance than the other drivers. I hope there's a patch or driver fix soon from either side to address this issue.

I'm having the same problem as Cullensadler and Chalybsumbra, but I'm using an nVidia card. Don't think it's AMD's fault.

Anyone else experiencing a bug where Assassin's Creed III inexplicably crashes at random points in the game?

I picked it up today after preordering sometime in June, and played through as far as getting to Boston as Haytham without a problem, but since then the game has crashed for seemingly no reason and taken my computer down with it over and over and over again. It started doing it the moment that I was set loose in the city to head to the general store at my leisure; I tried to climb a building and the game crashed as soon as I leaped off. It started doing that at certain other points, be it if I looked at the shopkeeper in the general store from the wrong angle, and eventually seemed to be avoidable if I figured out a particular camera angle from a particular position that I could completely avoid, but then the game even started crashing during cutscenes. Also, this seems to happen at random, and I've made it out of the city proper (following the Green Dragon Inn scene) and it still continues. Is this an issue with my computer, or an actual bug? If it is a bug, will it be addressed in a patch anytime soon?

The glitch itself is characterized by a sudden complete freeze of the visuals. Ambient noise continues briefly, as does the last line of dialogue if it happens during a cutscene. Then the screen shuts off and I get a few seconds of staticky buzz and then nothing. Once this happens, my computer becomes completely unresponsive and I can't even access the task manager to manually shut the game off, and have to shut my computer down via the power button.

I've already tried uninstalling the game and reinstalling it, and it doesn't seem to have helped at all. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I just had a hard lock up in Boston, after talking with Franklin in the general store when I went to exit it just froze up. Coudn't even ctrl alt del, had to hard boot.

I also have been getting constant random crashing in Boston. It seems Boston is the main culprit for it, as I was able to do the theater/ship area's without a single crash alt the way through, but once in Boston I am lucky to get 2-3 minutes in without it crashing.

Even once I got to the first Fort mission you do shortly after arriving in Boston it didn't crash the entire mission. However once I was out and back in Boston, bam, crashing crashing crashing.

Running on an Nvidia 580 (factory oc'd). AT first I wasn't even able to play the game as the display driver would crash out at the first in-game cutscene, but lowering the oc back to stock let it work , cept til Boston at least.

Have tried the 306 series drivers, 310.54, 310.61, it occurs in all of them.

I am also receiving heavy artifacts and popping when I run in heavy snow. This only seems to occur in the woods, when I am trudging through the thick snow and leaving a trail. The artifacting occurs in the snow directly around me.

The game worked wonderfully until I got to the portion where I have to get the feathers. Now the screen goes black and the music continues to play. Unless I reboot my computer it will then do the same thing just after launching the game (right after the "press any key" message).

My video driver is up to date.

I am playing with a 360 controller and it is behaving oddly. It seems like if I push the trigger button to run, it behaves like I have the trigger depressed even when I release it. My character is always in run mode and if I bump into anything climbable, my character tries to climb it. Also, the 'jump' text by the A button at the bottom right flickers on and off constantly. I was just playing AC:Brotherhood two nights ago and everything worked fine so it seems to be only a problem with AC3.

I'm about 5-6 hours into the game where i'm supposed to use the stockpile trade menu and once i buy the logs it wants me to go to the trade menu but it wont let go to it but it freezes up. I'm unable to make any more progress into the game because of this. If there is a way you can help or patch the game please tell me.

I'm having the trade menu tutorial issue as well. As described, after entering the tutorial you are able to navigate and buy wood, but after it says "Select the Trade Menu" there is no actual way of selecting the trade menu or backing out of the tutorial. Also worth noting is that if you navigate to any other menu when it asks you to go into your Stockpile, you'll end up stuck in one of the other menus too. Last I checked there were 4 or 5 people on the steam forums who also are having this issue. One lucky guy seemed to have had it fixed with a patch that came out this morning, however the remainder of us aren't so lucky.

Any feedback at all would be helpful.

Hi i encountered a bug earlier. I'm at work and can't post specs but i can edit when i get home. I was playing AC3 and was unable to make it into a windowed mode game. I do not know if that will effect the latter part of the story but i felt it pertinent information to the bug report. When I alt tab since its not in windowed mode the game will frequently cause BSOD.

Is anyone else getting BSOD or CTD?

Thanks,

THE "LEDGER" BUG, or the one in the "trading" menu is extremely frustrating. As people have stated you have to buy wood and lumber and send the convoy out to get it, when attempting to do either you are stuck in the menu with no response from any keys or clicking. WE CANNOT PLAY ANY FURTHER TILL THIS IS ADDRESSED! PLEASE HELP FIX IT

I have a similar problem. I can't even get past the cut scene after you pick the lock in the opera house at the beginning. I've tried multiple times but every time I go through the door it crashes in the cut scene. I've contacted Ubisoft Support over this. I also got the latest drivers from Nvidia installed. The only thing I can think of is the fact that Ubisoft said that the laptop versions of the cards they said in the requirements may work but are not supported.

Also having a problem with the Stockpile/Crafting/Trading menu. Am able to get wood, but the menu gets stuck and I can't send them. Either menu crashes and I am able to move through the 3 different choices by the mouse wheel, or am able to either get the wood or get to the trading window and the space bar not being recognized apparently when I try to use it. If I exit game, it saves the amount of wood I have, and then I'm able to get to the Trading menu, where it recognizes the Enter key. But can't get out of it, for it doesn't recognize the backspace, left control key, nor esc key.

Any feedback will be helpful.

So I started up the game, set all graphical settings to max, and then jumped in. Then this happened:

http://i.imgur.com/0YKW6l.jpg?1

Full resolution shot: http://i.imgur.com/0YKW6.jpg

This is right at the very beginning of the game, and it looked like this for the opening scenes as well. I can only assume it will continue to look like this for the entire game unless I can get some help.

Thanks, folks.

Edit: I posted prematurely. Turns out I was overconfident. I turned some graphic settings down to High and the problem was solved. I just never expected a PC I spent so much money on hardware for to be obsolete in 6 months.

Hey,

After playing through the very first mission in the opera house right after the cut scene where you get in the carriage, I get stuck in the loading screen in the animus. None of my menus work. I can run around, and I can take screen shots, but nothing else on my keyboard works. No menus, which means I have to ctrl-alt-del to quit.

If I restart and try to load that saved game, I get stuck in the loading screen immediately, every time. The only difference is the clothing.

http://i.imgur.com/TqwB2.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/svPWo.jpg

I have tried creating new games several times with the exact same result. This is extremely annoying, as there are a bunch of cut scenes that cannot be skipped. Way to go Ubisoft, you finally allow us to skip some extremely short cut-scenes that are over almost before you can skip them, but you still include a bunch of long drawn out cut scenes that are unskippable. After all, every one loves long unskippable cut-scenes. No one buys video games to play them, we just like watching the cut-scenes.

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the game. Uninstalling and re-installing UPlay, that oh so wonderful piece of bloatware. Updating drivers. All with no luck.

My PC is well within the system requirements.

Any Ideas?

Heey all strange bug here, the game runs fine up untill I climb up the ship mast, I have a view of the coast, the Ubisoft Presents Assassins Creed III pops up, then the animus loading screen appears, except it keeps loading, I can walk around and all but it woont load the new sequence, GPU and CPU are fine, drivers are up to date, ram isn't taxed at all, and prior to this point no artifacting or other bugs, ive played through part of the intro 3 times now all the same result, stuck at this specific load point.

I believe this issue is specifically related to anti-aliasing. You might be able to get away with max settings in everything but.

I seem to have an issue in which the light reflection on all characters' hair is buggy and appears in bright colors. It happens in the regular game but also in cinematics.

Anyone have any clue how to fix this? It ruins the immersion quite a bit and I would love to enjoy this game to the fullest.

Quick update to what I said earlier (crashing to desktop at random). Steam seems to continually complain that 1 file is corrupt when asked to verify integrity of the game cache (which I always do after a crash). Upon re-downloading the file, the game seems to run fine for a longer period before inevitably crashing. I've never figured out which file it is, but some other people seem to have issues with the single-player exe going bad on them, so maybe that's the culprit.

I'm having the trade menu tutorial issue as well. As described, after entering the tutorial you are able to navigate and buy wood, but after it says "Select the Trade Menu" there is no actual way of selecting the trade menu or backing out of the tutorial. Also worth noting is that if you navigate to any other menu when it asks you to go into your Stockpile, you'll end up stuck in one of the other menus too. Last I checked there were 4 or 5 people on the steam forums who also are having this issue. One lucky guy seemed to have had it fixed with a patch that came out this morning, however the remainder of us aren't so lucky.

Any feedback at all would be helpful.

Many people including myself are having this issue.

Just tried this as well, I got through maybe an extra 5 or so minutes, then crash to desktop like before. Maybe the Thanksgiving patch will address this.

No need to reboot, just Keep Ctrl+Alt+Del pressed for a few sec, you get a blue screen with a few options, pick the one at the buttom, then you can see the processes running, close AC3SP.exe, it will ask if your sure you want to force the game to close, press Yes, then the game is stopped..

As for so many others, my game crashes randomly...one thing is for sure I can't get into the shop in boston at all because there it crashes insantly the moment I'm inside the shop...if I choose to stay out and freeroam in boston, everything is alright, no frame drops or anything, just dandy, until it freezes all of a sudden, sound still playing 5 seconds later it exits the game, I have to press ctrl+alt+del to end the task...so it cannot be that my graphics card is the problem just because it's the laptop version...because until Boston everything flowed like water and until I have to get into the shop...as I said above, either I go in the shop and it freezes instantly and crashes or I freeroam and it's totally random when it crashes, one mouse move wrong and it crashes(I became paranoid here with the mouse angles because it seems to be some kind of a link)

I run it on a i7
16gb ram
on an SSD
with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 up to date...like I said, everything as fluid as water and then boom random crash


EDIT: did I mention that Multiplayer works perfectly? yep, no issues whatsoever, just single player crash crash crash

THE "LEDGER" BUG, or the one in the "trading" menu is extremely frustrating. As people have stated you have to buy wood and lumber and send the convoy out to get it, when attempting to do either you are stuck in the menu with no response from any keys or clicking.

I'm just going to echo two previously noted bugs:

1. The game randomly (and frequently) crashes to the desktop. Usually this is preceded by a brief freeze in gameplay and I have to use the task manager to kill the process.

2. There is horrible flickering/artifact in the snow of the frontier around Connor when he moves. I noticed the flickering stops if I disable SLI entirely, or change my nvidia SLI rendering mode to "force alternate frame rendering 2."

Honestly, I can't believe this made it out of beta. When did it become acceptable to put buggy games like this out on the market?

@dmzct...I am asking myself the same thing, it's quite inacceptable if you ask me, but maybe my standards are way too high for ubisoft, I am, after all, asking that the game that I paid for(I've done my end of the deal) is working properly without major(if not mega) crashes/bugs...maybe it's just me...even noname producers of low budget games on smartphones fix their bugs faster not to mention that they publish the game in working condition, and some are doing it for free...it must be us, we are asking for too much, but one thing is clear, if ubisoft does not fix it until (and I am extremely generous) monday they can rest assured that I will never buy from them again...

truth be told ubisoft, the pirated version of your game was on the trackers for 2 days now, working...but I am a good guy and buy all my assassin's creed games in advance and every time the deluxe version, but that will soon change I think

I think unfortunately this is par for the course. If the game is truly unplayable then you should return it until it's patched. That has been my practice as of late. I realize it's more work but getting the point across to these companies that if you take my hard earned money you had better hand me something that actually works is important to me.

On a side note, I've noticed Ubisoft has by far one of the WORST technical support systems in place. The responses they provide are all form letters and the ultimate result is almost always to blame you for having some random outdated driver or some other "problem" that in no conceivable way is actually the cause of your issue.

It would seem that the game will not change resolution if you have large text set to 150 DPI which most of us with larger monitors have done.
When text is set to 100 DPI the graphics resolution changes just fine.
Rather than reset text DPI all the time, find AC3sp.exe right click then select the compatibility tab.
Check the "Disable Display Scaling on High DPI settings" box and click "OK"
This worked for me and I was able to now enjoy gorgeous graphics.
I am running an AMD 7950 with an i7 and 16GB of Ram.
Hope this works for others!.

I don't know if the same is true for AC3mp.exe multiplayer file as I have not been able to solve the "AC3mp.exe has stopped working" error yet.

Hi,


My game is suffering from serious lags when in cities in Assassin's Creed III on PC. When the camera aims up to the sky or down to the floor, the game does not lag anymore in the cities. Everywhere else in the game, the game runs perfectly, really smooth. I'm pretty sure you can release a patch to optimize cities areas. It does not make sense that everything runs perfectly except for cities.


I'm running on:
Processor AMD A6-3420M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics, 1500 MHz, 4 Core, 4 logical processors

Will you release a patch to optimize???

Same problem here too...

There's a point, during the... whatsitcalled... the mission when you're introduced to the Homestead Ledger? When you get to that point, it works alright... until you're told to select the Trading Menu. There's no response, and from there you can't select any other menu, or exit for that matter. The only way to even close the game is to alt-tab/minimize/whateveryoudo, and force it to quit. =|

It's definitely not the keyboard. See? I just used it now. Enter key is fine.

This feels like... a massive oversight in menu selection. Or maybe something just broke that I'm not aware of. Has anyone else even had this problem?

AC3 has issues with shadows as well as other FX and is currently "not recommended" for 3D vision with the latest nvidia beta drivers, 310.66 or something.

Cannot access multiplayer at all. Every time I start the MP up, I'm told the Ubisoft services are down and I'm locked into Limited Mode. SP works perfectly fine with some small artifacting and other misc graphical glitches, but otherwise it runs okay. MP is the only problem I'm encountering.

Trying and apparently failing to wait for a fix for the CTD problems. I see I'm not the only one with this issue. The game runs beautifully for the 10 seconds to 5 minutes I typically get before the display locks - and the game minimizes revealing the desktop. I'm forced (as are others with this same issue) to CTRL-ALT-DEL and kill the AC3SP.exe task by tabbing to it in taskmanager.

I am also having the "one stubborn file" issue as well, although I can't conclusively link this anomaly to the cause of my CTD problem. After deleting all the non-content game files in the root directory (like the AC3MP / SP .exe's and other resource files) and reacquiring them manually, I got fed up and decided to take a more drastic approach. I completely deleted the local game cash in steam - and re-downloaded the entire game. Immediately after the download finished - I again get the message "one file failed to validate and will be reacquired". Yeah - that's what you said the last 50+ times I tried to validate you. Is it possible that there is a corrupt file on the steam mirror image? For this many people to have the same type of issue - it's not something peculiar with my setup - that much should be clear.

I hate to say this, but it seems to me like an unacceptably large proportion of players who seem to be having this same issue. Could this be some anti-PC support bias? I don't know how else to explain this - I mean the game has been out on consoles for a solid month - and as a counter point to my previous inference, if it was as simple as a single invalid file on the steam mirror - surely they would have addressed that by now... right?

Please help your loyal customers out here guys!

In the beginning when it installs directx and PB it fails at pb install saying " Failed to copy the file 'F:\Support\PunkBuster\pbsvc.exe' to 'C:\Windows\system32\pbsvc.exe' (error 5: no access.) And on top of that, the exact pbsvc.exe that i find on the AC3 disc says "installing pb for AC revelations" in top right corner when i start it. WTF is that. And when i try to install the patch it says "Error while patching file multi\DataPC.forge. Incorrect source file". Since i manage to install from the disc and reg it on uplay first time, i could uninstall and download the game from uplay. But same, and several error with sound files and pack during install.

Ahh... well if anyone else is having the CTD problem - it seems to have been resolved for many. Upping my GPU voltage to 1.075 worked for me. Seems to affect a lot of GTX 580 owners.

Free Aim in Nvidia Surround is broken.

The person you target is never targeted when you hold the reticule over them. I have to move the reticule about 10 feet to the left or right to get the white outline to show up on your target. It make it near impossible to use guns in the game.

This issue only happens when I am in 5760x1080 resolution. When I switch back to 1920x1080 the white outline shows up perfectly where the reticule is.

I'm having issues with controller configuration. I can remap the controller buttons just fine, however everytime I restart the game some of the configs are changed. And there doesn't seem to exist any controller configuration for multiplayer even though there is one for single player.

Considering Assassins Creed Revelations on PC had this features and they were flawless I'd expect Assassins Creed 3 to have them as well. While configuring controls everytime I start the game is possible, it's also quite time consuming and a nuisance.

I also wonder why the graphics options in the Multiplayer menu are more detailed than the graphics options in the single player menu. And why you don't write how high the anti aliasing actually is instead of normal, high and very high. Overall there seems to be less options for graphics customization than Revelations had which is discouraging to say the least.

I'm at the point where Achille is training Conner on how to use the ledger/stockpile. The game is locking up while I'm in the stock pile menu, and I can't back out of it. It will let me advance through the menu, but it won't let me back out of it. And if I toggle over to Convoy, I can't even toggle back to Trade. When I restart the game, it brings me back right into the stockpile menu. I am unable to play at all. All system and software updates are current. Anybody got any advice for me?

Hello,
I`m suffering from very low fps when entering boston (20 fps), the game works very well outside of this area,the only place where the fps whent down was the opera mision at the entrance (30).
I don't have a hardcore gaming rig,but it is a decent one: Intel core 2 quad 9300,Gtx 650 1gb and 3 gb of ram ,all my drivers are up to date and i'm using the nvidia beta driver ,every game i've tryied up now worked very well and i was really exited about ac3 ,but it's imposible to play like this, please fix this as soon as possible i really like this game and this poor optimization is ruining it for me.

Thank you and have a good day.

I bought official russian Freedom or Die edition of AC III, however:
I can`t choose alternative languages neither in installation (it doesn`t ask which one to install), nor in the game itself (when I try to select any language or subtitles other than Russian - nothing happens).
Readme says I can choose it in installation but it didnt ask which one to install, so it installs russian as the default one. The sound and text files itself seem to be present in the designated folder though so other languages werent cut from this version.
Anyway the voices and russian translation are atrocious and I think it`s logical to assume customers should be able to change the language if the russian is indeed the only provided language.
Any advice?

Trying and apparently failing to wait for a fix for the CTD problems. I see I'm not the only one with this issue. The game runs beautifully for the 10 seconds to 5 minutes I typically get before the display locks - and the game minimizes revealing the desktop. I'm forced (as are others with this same issue) to CTRL-ALT-DEL and kill the AC3SP.exe task by tabbing to it in taskmanager. Same. Good times.


Is it possible that there is a corrupt file on the steam mirror image? For this many people to have the same type of issue - it's not something peculiar with my setup - that much should be clear.Try this with any game at all. It's typically a config file, which the game will change, and is different to the steam stored version. If it's just one small file, it's generally nothing to worry about.

It's always worth checking the cache, because sometimes a major file can be corrupted, but if it's always reacquiring a single small file, that's not the problem. The problem is more deeply rooted in low level game code.

I've mentioned this once before but it's worth saying again because it needs to be addressed. there is something seriously wrong with the snow and shadow rendering in sequence 3 "unconvinced". it rapidly clips in and out of existence. it's obnoxiously distracting and making the game hard to play. i'm not sure if this is the case throughout the game beyond this point but i would rather not play until this is fixed and something tells me this problem is not limited to this instance alone.

Hi :)

I was just wondering, does anyone else experience a problem with the Trading system? I can't select items when on the menu and cannot quit ethier. I tried to scroll the mouse wheel and dosent work. So i had been forced to shut down the game using the windows multitask menu several times. When i look at the Account Book i cant select anything nor to craft anything, this piss me off because i want to make Connor to gain some money and it just dosent work. Pardon me if this dosent make to much sense english is not my native language.

It's called your game is horribly optimized for PC.

8gb DDR3 Ram @ 1600mhz

Thousands of players can't play due to your USELESS Uplay client. Earlier today I had duplicates of AC3, one named AC3 and one AC3 - CZ(?)

I don't know why CZ came up because I play in English. Later the AC3 one got removed and I'm stuck with AC3 - CZ which won't open AC3 SP nor MP, not even in safemode.

Is it too much to ask if you can fix this god **** game anytime this MONTH? Pirated copy of this game works like a charm I might add.
Your DRM didn't decrease the amount of pirated copies, you might want to think about increasing your CONSUMER SUPPORT because THAT'S what makes people pirate Ubisoft products, you're amateurs and it's a joke.

When i'm playing the game it suddenly freezes and then says: ''Exe. doesn't work anymore''

I do not have the latest drivers (will install them later on)
And i have a ATI Radeon 4800 Graphic card (which is not being supported)

Overall the game runs pretty smoothly so i doubt that it doesn't really matter that my graphic card is not being supported but i can only play for about 3/5 minutes at best untill the game freezes and tells me that the exe doesn't work.

Does anyone experience the same problems?

I cant install the game propper. In the beginning when it installs directx and PB it fails at pb install saying " Failed to copy the file 'F:\Support\PunkBuster\pbsvc.exe' to 'C:\Windows\system32\pbsvc.exe' (error 5: no access.) And on top of that, the exact pbsvc.exe that i find on the AC3 disc says "installing pb for AC revelations" in top right corner when i start it. WTF is that. And when i try to install the patch it says "Error while patching file multi\DataPC.forge. Incorrect source file". Since i manage to install from the disc and reg it on uplay first time, i could uninstall and download the game from uplay. But same, and several error with sound files and pack during install. This is doing my head in. I have a decent pc setup with the newest drivers.

2 x Corsair SSD Force Series 3, 240GB
Seagate Barracuda® 2TB
Corsair AX 1200W
2 x BenQ 24" LED XL2420T

Just did a fresh install of everything that has to do with punkbuster, uplay and ubisoft. And on top of that i went to the store and got a fresh new copy of the game and its all good now. No problem with pb or getting the last patch installed. But since the game all ready was registered to my uplay account, i now have a key extra. So if there is a poor sod out there thats in a tight spot, give me a pm and ill give you the key. Its soon christmas anyway. :)

I'm having the trade menu tutorial issue as well. As described, after entering the tutorial you are able to navigate and buy wood, but after it says "Select the Trade Menu" there is no actual way of selecting the trade menu or backing out of the tutorial. Also worth noting is that if you navigate to any other menu when it asks you to go into your Stockpile, you'll end up stuck in one of the other menus too. Last I checked there were 4 or 5 people on the steam forums who also are having this issue. One lucky guy seemed to have had it fixed with a patch that came out this morning, however the remainder of us aren't so lucky.

Any feedback at all would be helpful.

Well I got past the bug with the trade menu by only using the keyboard the first time you go into it and then it works with mouse after you finish your first transaction and get out of the trade menu.

But the problem I'm having now is even worse. I am trying to recruit a doctor for the homestead. In order to do that you have to defend Doctor Lyle White. As soon as I get into the area where "defend doctor white" starts, all the antagonists just decide to have a stand around and do nothing party. You can't provoke them, and you can't leave the blue circle because it desyncs and puts you right back in the blue circle with everyone standing around looking at you. I read that someone said just go do other missions and keep coming back to this one and hopefully it will start the action. But how do you do that? You can't leave the circle, you can't go on other missions. Any help? Thanks

+1 STUCK IN LEDGER

I'm also stuck in the "Ledger Training". Once you enter the ledger there is no way out, ESC does not function, and the only option is to navigate (poorly) further into the ledger. I would like to know how the "using the keyboard only trick" to get through it the first time works, seeing as how my only way out of the ledger is a hard shut down of the game, and rebooting the game takes me directly back into the ledger. The only way I would be able to "try" this trick would be do start a new game and play the first 18% again, which is not something I want to do.

UBISOFT.... Come on here people. Get it together. I'm playing Indie games that don't come close to bugs of this magnitude. If you got these fixes, please release them. Don't pull an "EA DICE" move, waiting until you've compiled 500 fixes. Let's have em, eh?

This was very troublesome for me, I spent roughly 2 hours getting out of this "ledger training".
Some observations:
1. I had not been playing with number lock enabled.
2. Even after restarting back into the "ledger training" I had limited use of the keyboard, right arrow seemed to be working while the other arrow keys did not.
3. The scroll wheel on the mouse worked for limited navigation, but highlighting options with the mouse and clicking any mouse button had no effect.
4. I did manage to get out of the screen by using the method AlanHawk mentioned, but only after stockpiling until I had depleted funds. I tried to stockpile only 1 item and it would not allow exit.

I'm still rather perplexed over this bug. I thought I had encountered a true "Game Breaker" here, and many others who lack internet mining skills will likely shelf this until it's fixed.
Like I said, I'm through it now, and offer these observations in the hopes that it may be used as raw data for somebody (Ubisoft, that's you) to develop a fix.

Hi,

I'm having issues with Uplay and Assassins Creed 3! Uplay runs just fine, I click button to play game, it brings up update screen for a second (presumably looking for updates), it disappears and nothing else happens. According to UPlay, the game is running, and it is running in my processes, but as AC3SP.exe*32. I had it installed in a folder on C: called "games". I'm running windows 7, 64 bit.

I have tried reinstalling to same location, and when i do, I get an error for punkbuster saying i do not have permission to overwrite file in system32. The game installs though, but same issue.
I am installing to the program files x86 folder to see if that makes a difference, but i have my doubts!

Can anyone help??

Forgot to add I bought the freedom edition of the game. So it's a legit copy..

Gun not shooting, just drawing sword:
I am trying to shoot the barrels to blow up the gate in the Johnson's Errand sequence. I aim at the barrels using precision mode (F) but when I left click he just draws the sword. Also I can't move at all. I tried right clicking, pressing space bar, and every other key. Nothing works. I can't move closer and I can't shoot from where I am. The game will not continue. Has anyone had the same issue and was able to fix the problem? If I can't move on in the game I will have to return it :mad:

I got no punkbuster error on intitial install. I was up to about sequence 5, I closed the game and went to bed seeing it was 5.30am. And next time I came to play it, it won't load.

As i was able to play the game, I can't help you with the keyboard error. Does the mouse work? Maybe try running as admin.. Just a thought.. ;)

sorry if this has been re-posted, but I have the problem with Punkbuster during installation. It says that copying of a punkbuster file failed, but the installation continues normally . What should I do? I mean, will the game be able to run?

One other peculiar bug I've noticed...

The game seems to downclock my GPU unnecessarily. For instance, running 2 GTX 580's at their default ~722mhz clock speed, I've noticed when I enter naval gameplay the game will downclock both cards to 405mhz causing a major drop in FPS. Clock speed goes back up to normal after I exit naval gameplay. This is reproducible every time. The title screen experiences this problem too, although not consistently.

Graphics bugs were frequent, especially shadows, looked like black sprinkles where alot of shadows probably should have been, my graphics drivers were all up to date, 2 seperate video cards as well.

Freerunning was extremely buggy on buildings and rocks(trees were fine). I had ALOT of problems on horses as well, small rocks, or obstacles in cities often made the horse just stop dead.

Alot of NPCs I saw would also get stuck in objects, or fall halfway through walls. Seeing 3 town criers all next ot eachother was also very common.

Problem:
Game crashes at varying intervals after starting the game (fastest was soon after the game starts, longest I played the game is 20 minutes).
Occurs abruptly, game freezes, green video artefacts noted on screen in a regular pattern and goes black. Next, I have to CTRL-ALT-DEL and close the game as it is "Not responding".
Looked at the error report (see bottom of message) and states AC3SP.exe not responding!
I clearly meet the specs that you have specified and used various screen resolutions, video quality, reinstalling the game and various tweaks with to no avail.
Reading all the complaints on this thread has made me feel that you have released a game that is considered an unfinished product and clearly has not been converted well (console to PC).
I'd like to demand a refund! It's almost unplayable!

Discovered a bug in the PC version, every time I am in the peg leg mission, fort something. inside the burning house where you are supposed to get 3 kill streak, I killed all of them without any hits nor any tricks, only attacking. Still I didn't get the streak?? How do you determine the streak when even killing all five in a row won't get it?


And actually somehow, I got the peg leg missions completed without collecting one of the trinkets in new york.

I'm having a problem that doesn't seem to be very frequent among others. When I create a new save file it plays the opening cinematic, then the short scene with desmond and 3 others in the car. Then it crashes. When I restart the game it goes through the loading screen with Desmond that you can control. Then the game freezes. I have updated my graphics driver, sound card and directx.

Specs:
Windows 7
Intel core i5
Nvidia GeForce GT525M

This setup is capable of running the game since multiplayer works fine.

P.S To everyone who says Ubisoft doesn't give a f**k about these problems, remember, staff are only online during weekdays, so by tomorrow (I hope) the replies will be rolling in.

Cinematic hair shine is red/purple most of the time...but not all the time. Only in the cinematic and only the shine on the hair. Normal game play, no issue with red/purple shine on hair even other surfaces with shining in cinematic has no red/purple. If it was hardware/driver it would be in gameplay and all events on shine on all surfaces. This is game engine issue.

Hello everyone,
Thank you so much for your Feedback and patience so far. Please make sure that any and all issues you are experiencing are reported to Ubisoft Support. http://support.ubisoft.com/

For those of you that have purchased AC3 from Steam, please ensure that you have the updated version of Uplay downloaded. Please first uninstall the version of Uplay you have then download the updated version directly from the site. http://uplay.ubi.com/en-US/

I also see that many of you are also stuck in the Stockpile/Trade menu. Until we get a FAQ's up for you please take a look at the Console one to get the general idea of how to continue.
http://ubisoft.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/17405/p/88%2C2512 If you are still having issue after that then please contact Support.

As you may have noticed by the feedback, there is a major FPS drop issue when in cities like Boston or New York. And not only with people with bad PC's but with amazing PC's as well. I was in Boston earlier, and have turned away from it, my FPS went up to 60. I turned the camera towards Boston and it fell down to 25... And it's a constant issue. Not only me, everyone on PC. I hope you guys will patch it up soon, because as you devs may know, playing with 25 FPS is horrible. Thanks!

PC specs
I5-3570
HD6870
4GB Ram
Windows 8 64-bit

The game is so so terrible optimized it's just unplayable,looking to one side FPS goes to 60 looking to other goes to 30 or even 25 . It's so unstable .. 50% fps drops are unacceptable . Just letting you know UBISOFT that I will not buy this game until you release a performance patch and will recommend to do the same to every person I will meet , enough of you crap, lie and promises about how good PC version before release . This is unacceptable . Looks like optimization is in early ALPHA stage ,GPU and CPU scaling are horrible .

Just started playing and Having only 2 issues really:

1. FPS drops in certain places are horrendous
2. NO EYEFINITY SUPPORT - This one is especially dissapointing

Unfortunately, I waited for the PC version to run eyefinity as well as a better visual experience. If I wanted to play on a single screen and 30 FPS, I would have bought this on my 360/PS3. Ubisoft, you guys have done great work on this game as well as its predecessors. Please patch AC3 or with with AMD/Nvidia so that we PC gamers don't feel like we wasted our time and money. I know you guys can do it!

Much Respect and Dissonance.

11-25-2012, 08:03 PM
so for those who stucked in the stockpile I figured out two solutions:

nr. 1: if you have one, use an XboX 360 controller and you can get out

nr. 2: for those who don't have XboX controller (like me :)) try this out: when you launch the game, go to Options and in the Controll menu change the control settings so each kind of movement or action can be controlled by keyboard. I did this, eliminated the mouse controll, started the game (no need to reboot) and IT WORKED! :) with only keyboard controll you can get through the Stockpile and enjoy the game. :)
I hope it works for you too. ;)

My frames per second drop drastically after entering any large open area such as Boston and the Frontier. Lowered all settings, turned off v-synch, nothing helped.
Please fix this in the next patch of gives us some more variables in the .ini like line of sight and LOD to experiment with. Also an option for v-synch in the options menu wouldn't be bad.

Hi faris18omar, I'm having the same problem, but mine resolution is at 640*8xx something, i figured out a non permanent soloution, try change to multiplayer, and then back to singelplayer... that worked for me, but I have to do that every time i start up the game.
Hope someone got a permanent soloution for this...!

One more thing, AC3 crashes every time i try to load my save, i choose the save and select load save, and then Connor shows in Animus for a while, then i get white screen and the game crashes.
The save is at 30%,
*SPOILER WARNING*


Just finished the mission for Harbour Master in Homestead, where you get the canons for her beauty. right after that,the game crashed, and keeps crashing every time i load the save.


*SPOILER ENDED*
My system specs meets the recommended system repuirements, I have updated both Nvidia and RealTek driver and installed last version of DirectX.

Good day!

I have bought AC3 Deluxe Edition + season pass November 22, 2012. I have non-Steam version.

Since November 23, 2012 I cannot play in multiplayer because I receive message about logging into limited mode although I have played in the first day of AC3 release in my country (November 22, 2012) without any troubles. After 5 or 10 times of trying "GO ONLINE" limited mode off but I cannot find any sessions in any gamemode. It's so pity! :-( My NAT in game looks like GREEN and bandwidth looks like ORANGE.

I have read the page about that trouble (Limited mode in Assassin's Creed III: http://ubisoft-en.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/17321) and I am sure it is not problem with my ISP or anything on my side (non client-side trouble). And I have read many AC3 forums (and Ubisoft too) where many players receive message about the same.
I have tried to do what have written on this topic (Multiplayer Connection Issues in Assassin's Creed III: http://ubisoft-en.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/17478/related/1) but it had not solved the trouble.

Please help me and other PC players which (in most cases) have bought Deluxe Edition + season pass and cannot play in MP. May be all that is required is to reboot AC3 servers?

Thanks a lot!

I had this problem too, but I managed to work around it. When the game loads, I bought one piece of lumber. Then I went to the last of the three submenus and loaded that lumber onto a convoy and sent it off. That got me out of the menu.

It didn't exactly fix the problem, but it allowed me to carry on with the game.

Hello everybody!

I'd like to report several RANDOM crashes during gameplay, those are: (ALL connected with game crashing or nvidia driver 310.61)

1)When th game's loading and it STARTS with a short video, during this video GREEN SQUARES appear all over the screen and the game crashes.

2)When the game's loaded, during a mission, the game stops, black screen appears and the game crashes.

Tried next steps (By order)

1) Reinstalled the NVIDIA driver using a CLEAN install (used the 310.61 driver)

2) Reinstalled - UPLAY and AC3 eventually

3) Checked my logs for any mistakes - NOTHING

4) Tried to use minimum GPU settings (NO shadows, shaders etc)

5) Reinstalled my OS.

NOTHING helped. Any suggestions?

System:
ASUS Rampage Maximus IV - extreme Z
Core i7 2600K 3.4 GHz
Kingston HyperX DDR3 16G (4x4GB)

Only problem I have to report and it is a BIG one for me. I can't play single player in offline mode in uplay. I need this option so I can play when i'm on deployment in the navy.

Everytime I attempt to start it is offline mode, it will go to the first screen with the historical events disclaimer, then it will lock up and crash. This is wierd because the game works great and have had no issues when i'm connected to uplay, but the moment I put it in offline mode, it no longer works.

Please fix this, or tell me how to fix it and I'll do it myself.

Cause it's definitely not easy to recognize the explored area from the dark background (and unexplored areas)!!! Also at AC2 you could explore the whole map with all visited watch towers. Now you can only explore a big part of the whole map, the rest must be explored by your self on foot...

Btw. The old AC2 Weapon Circle-Menu was better too, than the new AC3 Weapon Menu...

1.,
Please change the Map-Colors of the Terrain-Lines to white, it's very necessary
for better regonizing of an explored Area from an unexplored Area,

2.,
Please make colored Action Buttons (for xBox Controllers) for Action-Scenes
if an Animal attacks you, cause it's easier to regonize with colored Bottons on the Screen like...
Green A-Button Symbol
Red B-Button Symbol
Blue X-Button Symbol
Yellow Y-Button Symbol

Hi everyone,

I am having a graphics glitch in the snow areas that makes the game unplayable for me. Whenever Kenway is walking through snow or there are other tracks in the area whole areas of the ground will start flashing. It makes me feel as though I am about to have a seizure and I have to turn the game off.

I'm running a GTX 590, 16 GB of RAM and an intel i7 2600k processor. All latest drivers are installed and I have tried a couple of the latest drivers I downloaded and it does it with all of them.

Ubisoft, please patch this ASAP as I have been waiting patiently for the PC version of AC3 and I really want to be able to enjoy it.

I've seen a lot of bugs in this game so far. Most can be worked around, though I feel for those with the Ledger issue. I noticed some problems with that as well, but managed to successfully escape from it.

Working on the Homestead missions now. And have come across one called, "The Fight" You are supposed to follow a couple kids, to their parents, who are, you guessed it, fighting. When I do, all of a sudden Connor is standing between the 2 fighters, who are going at it through him I might add. There is a blue bar below, and on the left and right side are 4 buttons. And nothing happens. The 2 simply struggle for awhile, but you can't do anything. Press any button you like, and you're out of luck. Fortunately, I could escape and back out of the mission, but it simply cannot be completed in its current, buggy form.

Hello my game freezes every 4 minutes or so for 30 seconds up to one minute and it becomes so anoying. It happens when walking, cutscences, fighting.. etc. I have a dual socket 2011 and a HD5970 gpu, I als tried a single 5870. Same results. I dont have any kind of stutter or lag in framerate however.

Things I did:
- Installed new drivers gpu/audio 12.11 and 12.06
- Playing without internet
- Low videosetting no vsync.

What can I do next?

Backspace does not work in Accounting Book, not even using the mouse to click the backspace icon. Short fo sending a Convoy like some have done the only way to exit is to End Task from Task Manager.

Game Breaking bug. Surprised it even made it to release.

I made a thread about this problem before I saw this thread, so I'll add the problem here.

In every AC game, you make insanely long credits sequences that feel like they go on forever. Everyone hates it, you know they hate it, but you still won't put a "skip" button on for the credits.

AC3 crashes approximately every 20 minutes, sometimes sooner, sometimes later. I have put up with that problem in order to make it through the game. However, I cannot get through the credits sequence without a crash. Every time I restart the game to try it again, it returns to a checkpoint just before the final loooooooong cutscene. Because it's such a pain to watch that scene and sit in front of the credits, I can't face trying any more.

As a result, I will never see the epilogue missions that you decided to tuck away after the credits. Worse than this, I am effectively locked out of the game I bought and cannot continue the parts of Connor's game that I had not yet completed. My only option is to create a new save game and begin a fresh rerun, and as you know that means it'll be hours until I'm really playing the actual game at all.

PLEASE put a skip button on the credits. What on Earth makes you think we want to watch them in the first place?

I got the game yesterday and everything played really smooth (45-60) fps until I got into Boston, massive frame drops, I got like 30ish but in some places drops to 20-22 really unplayable.

I got a GTX 560 Ti, 4giga RAM DDR2 and Phenom II X4 955 BE. Got the latest driver from nvidia that "improves the performance". What should I do ? Many people seem to have issues in Boston.

For those getting stuck in the stockpile, i used the xbox360 controller i had laying around and set the settings to use it.
That works if you have one.
Might also try NOT touching the mouse at all when you're in the stockpile.
Not sure if that works though.

Since the Homestead intro and the obligatory sending of the first convoy, my convoy has been stuck in "attacked" mode without ever displaying a map marker in the frontier. Even after playing through several subsequent sequences it still won't time-out, so I've been stuck, unable to rescue, make, or send a new convoy. I thought I was just being stupid at first - but after a little research it seems others are having this problem too, yes? Have there been any solutions proposed yet?

Still no fix to offline play? Or has anyone else even tried this to see if offline works for them? I've tried everything short of re-installing and I don't want to do that yet because I have not heard anyone even mentioning playing this in offline mode.

So can some people try playing in offline mode and let me know if it works and that I may need to re-install if it does, because it crashes everytime I start it. Works fine in online though.

Neither the crafting/economic ledger nor the assassin missions menu are accessible using a mouse and keyboard. Opening a ledger with a mouse setup enabled makes the menu and game impossible to use or quite without force-quitting. Clicking the left mouse button while in the assassin skill menu simply does nothing.

Ran into the same issue. Hope it gets fixed.

Actually found a way around the issue. Just start the mission and quit the game while in the buggy state. When you reload, it will go straight to the fight sequence, and in my case, it was now working.

Is anyone else having issue with the dialogue not playing in the game? In most of the cut scenes/dialogue scenes I have no dialogue and when I do Haytham/Connor's dialogue is not available, only the character he is interacting with. Does anyone know if there is a patch for this or if one is coming out? My laptop exceeds the requirements for this game but I had heard that systems with multiple processors are having problems with this. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Been looking trought all the ways to take down that quest, there is no way to take him down in air without killing him. I bet it is but its way to hard and it seemts like no pc gamers have managed it(due to there is absolutely no shown video of people making it, exept some console). Since iv gone trought all the methods for console and they manage it fine, but each and every time i try its a fail the target dies, its seemts to me its either a bug or you made it impossible.

Serious stability problems in Boston with a high-end system. Drops down well below 30. Tuning resolution down from 2560x1080 to 1920x1080, Shadow Quality, AA, Textures... None of this doesn't seem to affect FPS in any manner, which is strange. Changing Environment Quality to normal gives up around 8 frames per sec which makes the game only slightly unplayble instead of a picture slideshow.

I can't believe you console peasants could port the game over to PC like this. Better get to work on a stability fix soon or this will be the last time you'll hear of me and my money. Also what the hell is up with Uplay having to run alongside Steam? I don't mind every uppity gaming company running their own dysfunctional Steam rip-off but at least let us choose which one to use. This also has got to change if you intend to keep me as a customer.

Wasn't. Only got him to the menu screen. Before he couldn't get to the menu screen before it'd crash. Now he gets just past the Previously On video, and that's it. I spoke too soon. Seems like no one has the answers. I think it's a problem on Ubisoft's end though. It works fine for my computer, and I've got an Nvidia Geforce 555M running on Windows 8.

I have similiar problems as many people on this thread about lag and poor fps in big cities like New York.

I am running AMD but far from low end. I have contacted technical support but have yet to hear a response.

Does anyone know if a patch is in the mix and will address this issue??

I bought AC3 for PC about a week ago.

A few bugs I am encountering.

1. The recruit contacts have disappeared. I have the first 3 from Boston, but the NY contacts are not on my map anymore. Occasionally one will appear on my map, I will run over there and it vanishes...

2. Items I find and collect are not in the secret basement. All of the unique items i have found are nowhere to be found. The only outfits I can change are the ones I buy at the general stores. The basement is empty (expect for the stupid prison outfit)

I have a problem with scaling dpi on this game, every time i run it on single player mode, is not expanded in all my pc window. It shows me a black line on the right side of the srceen, i thought at first it was a resolution problem but changing the resolution didn't help. Diging on the internet i found out about the dpi and i think thats my problem, reading other people issues with resolution i can tell them they cant try to disalbe the dpi in properties tab of the ACSP.exe. I didn´t find this problem with mutliplayer mode, please Ubisoft fix this because i had to play the whloe game with this annoying black line on my screen and i couldn't enyoy the game graphics at all.

Was experiencing ctd's and crashes every few minutes randomly. Read a few guides on how to resolve this, and I was told that my GTX580 was at fault. Found a fix that worked for me:

- Downloaded "MSI Afterburner" a free download
- installed
- bottom right is the settings option
- tick "Unlock Voltage control" & "Unlock Voltage monitoring"
- Apply changes and back to main menu -
- increased Core Voltage to 1100 & apply

And TADA! No idea what the techy stuff is all about, and I dont really wanna know. This worked though after trying a half dozen other options, to no avail

I'm a bit more interested about low fps in cities bug. A friend of mine told me that he doesn't get low fps in cities and he runs an Intel i5 CPU.

Can people with i5 or i7 processors and high-end graphics cards say whether they experience drastic fps drops in major cities?
What about AMD users with high-end GPUS; is somebody NOT having this issue?

Thanks

I have an i5 2500k @ 4.4GHz, and 2 HD6950s in Crossfire @ 900MHz/1300MHz.

I get a solid 65fps (limited by AfterBurner) with max settings @ 2560x1440 and around 40-60% GPU usage on the ship, on rooftops, underground and on the outskirts of Boston.

In the opera house or the frontier things were/are a bit hit and miss 30-65fps, depending on onscreen action.

In Boston I'm lucky to get 40fps and its usually more like 25-30fps. :(
