I wish i could say this is a great game but i have a major problem with it , The game freezes and locks up the entire computer no alt tabbing ctrl alt deling nothing works untill i turn the pc off. I have never had any problems with any other games with this set up so i have come to the conclusion that it is AC2 locking it up.
Quick system specs:
3ghz quad core extreme
8gig ddr3 ram
plenty of hdd space
Heyhey, It seems I'm not the only one have such a crippy problem. first of all i thought it might be my hardware problem...but after i upgrade my ram and graphic card. the problem remains. everytime whenever loading to the new senquence. the game freezed and i have to restart the whole computer...
UBISOFT..please really really concern about your consumer's problem. we are not paying for the **** rubbish!!!
Same S#IT here...
It just keep freezing with no apparent reason!
Sometime it freeze a few min after I launch the game... sometime after 1h or more.
Not to mention the idiotic mouse acceleration that "entertain" me while waiting for the next crash...
4 Gigs ram
..and a rubbish game!!!
Have you ALL tried running the game On 2 CPU cores, or even 1 core (depending on your processor i.e. Quad/Dual) ? (Though You shouldn't have any problem playing the game on a Dual-Core CPU). NOT sure if this can solve your problem, but there is no harm in trying it. I don't have this game, so I can't test this at my end. @Anthony85, what are your System Specs ?
**Try disabling 2 CPU cores while playing the game. You can also try to run the game on a SINGLE core, if this fails.
After you have loaded the Game's Main Menu, Open Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL/CTRL+SHIFT+ESC) and Click on the Processes Tab. On the Processes tab, at the bottom click on the 'Show processes from all users' Button. Now Right click the process i.e. AssassinsCreedIIGame.exe, and Click on the 'Set Affinity' option, and then 'Uncheck' any 2 boxes labelled as CPU 0, CPU 1 etc., and click on the OK button. But first Launch the game and then press 'ALT-TAB' to go back to the desktop, and now open the Task Manager, and follow the above method. Press 'ALT-TAB' to go back to the game.
Just make sure to run the process i.e. AssassinsCreedIIGame.exe, with any 2 cores of the CPU. Or Uncheck any 3 boxes, to play the game on a Single CPU core.
**Another method: Insert the following command inside the Target line at the game's Shortcut TAB. Make a Shortcut of the game's .EXE and insert the following command (Right-click---->Go to properties---->Shortcut TAB):
This will allow the game to run on High priority, and only on 2 CPU cores. There is another syntax which we can use: C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c start “NameofExecutable.exe” /PRIORITY /AFFINITY # “Shortcut's path”. You can also Lower the process priority if needed.
You can also try running the Game's .exe/Game's Launcher as an 'Administrator', and also under 'Windows XP/Vista Compatibility mode' (If using Windows 7). Btw, which OS are you all using ? Kindly specify it. And one more thing: Disable Anti-Aliasing (AA) as well as VSync at the game's VIDEO/Graphics Menu options. Turn them OFF.
//* You also need to wait for ATI/Nvidia to release new Updated Drivers for their Graphic Cards. They usually test and release new Optimised drivers which increase some performance in latest PC titles. Though this is NOT always the case, but I'm just telling. Btw, also download the latest GPU drivers.
