Crash/freeze after Ubisoft logo/main menu - SOLUTION!
I have solved this problem! The issue is that the STEAM OVERLAY and the UPLAY OVERLAY are conflicting. Simply DISABLE THE UPLAY OVERLAY in the Uplay Launcher settings and the game will run just fine.
1. Launch FROM DUST from Steam
2. Log-in to the UPLAY launcher
3. Click the SETTINGS icon in the top-right corner of the Uplay Launcher (GEAR icon)
4. UNCHECK the box for "Enable in-game overlay for supported games"
5. Click CLOSE
6. Click PLAY
6a. If it still doesn't work, try clicking the the ARROW next to the PLAY button and choose "Play in SAFE-MODE" After successfully launching in safe-mode once, it should work in normal mode too
I tried that but it didn't work.
It worked holy crap man I owe you a virtual beer or something!!!
You are amazing! This worked for me. I was the same as most people, crashing right after the ESRB or when the Ubisoft logo popped up. Thank you SO MUCH for posting this, more people need to bump this thread and some admin NEEDS to make it a sticky and give this man a cookie!
My question is how on EARTH did someone from Ubisoft NOT post this? Neatchee deserves mega props!!!
i tried this but it didnt work for me
I tried but it still crashes in both normal and safe.
