- Linking to Ubi/PSN/Live accounts and unlock Altair skin:

You need to wait until you have Prince of Persia then, in the main menu, press the Y/Triangle ****on to go into the unlock screen. From there you can link your account to unlock the Altair skin.- The game gets stuck on loading screenOriginally posted by Daroth_343
- Character models suffer from an exaggerated bloom effect.
Solution: So far only seen on ATI cards, installing the latest Catalyst 8.12 drivers should fix the problem

Enable vertical sync and try again (it works for me).

Well in case somebody reads this thread first, there are other things to try if turning on Vertical sync doesn't fix it.
Go to the Nvidia(or ATI) Control Panel. In 3D Settings set defaults and/or set to "Application Controlled".
Also another thing to try is setting your LCD Screen refresh rate to 60Hz. (You can find this in Display Settings, Advanced)
You may need to do the above two things along with turning Vertical Sync on.
- The game lags around every 2 minutes
Solution: Apparently caused by the game phoning home (gconnect.ubi.com), a possible solution is to disconnect from the Internet while playing the game although it's unclear whether or not this works for everyone.
- Skin unlock codes

Unlocks the Classic Prince and Farah skins.
Works for PC, I just tested it.
Unlock Altair skin
The codes are the same for everybody.
--- Audio problems/game freezes with X-Fi Xtreme Audio ---

I think I've figured a fix. You need to turn off hardware acceleration, since our sound card is screwy. Might take a little more CPU, but not noticable.
Go to control panel, sound and audio devices, audio tab, sound playback section, click advanced, perfomance tab, slide hardware acceleration down to none. Enjoy

------ "Unexpected error" when starting the game on a single core Athlon processor ------Originally posted by Preacher_Bob:
It might be worth a mention somewhere that on some gamepads, even after repamming, the analog sticks won't work in the menu, but will work in game.
Workaround is to use keyboard or digital pad in the menu.
People are reporting problems starting the game on single core Athlon processors:
No solution for this problem has been found at this point and the readme states that "Ubisoft will not be developing updates to fix possible problems that might occur on this type of computer."
------ Stuck in certain area due to game bug ------
If you're finding yourself stuck in a certain area where a certain event isn't triggering (doors that remains closed, areas that can't be healed after defeating the boss), a possible solution is to retrieve an older autosave. The game doesn't overwrite autosaves but only displays the latest one. On Vista, the list of save files can be found in "C:\Users\<your username>\Documents\Prince of Persia\Save". The autosaved games will have a filename such as "2008-12-17 22h53m46s Autosave.PoPSavedGame". If you want to use an older autosave, you simply have to remove (make a backup just in case) all the newer savegames. For those that want to increase the amount of saves available ingame, note that you can achieve this by making several copies of the non-auto saves (keep in mind I didn't thoroughly test this so don't blame me if you end up losing your savegames). This could work for console versions as well, I don't know if they also keep all of their autosaves.
------ Game freezes when remapping controls ------

So to fix the problem, I went in the option menu, went to remap my controls, and when the game hanged, I unplugged and replugged the mouse and keyboard from my computer. Guess what, the controls could then be remapped!! How stupid is that problem! Anyway it seems to be a problem with Saitek keyboards as I too have that brand of keyboard.
