Alright, so I have tried everything I could think of to get this to work but to no avail. It is really annoying me.
Here is what happens: I launch the game from steam, it opens Uplay, and shows the game. I hit play, and it tells me "Running Game..." After that, an "After Game Report. Thanks for playing!" shows up as if I had played the game. Nothing loads it just tries to run, then exits. Sometimes I get a "AC3SP.exe has stopped responding" error, but nothing more.
I have tried just about all the solutions that would be relevant to this. I made sure all the important drivers have been installed and up to date, disabled Anti-Virus (MSE), launched Steam/Uplay/AC3 exe in Administrator mode, allowed the programs through the Firewall, reinstalled uplay, verified game cache, and reinstalled the game but to no progress. And yes, I have tried launching the .exe directly from the steam folder as well.
I also want to mention the previous AC games have worked fine so far. AC3 is the only game giving me trouble.
On the other hand, I bought AC3 on steam. So, I launch Uplay from there.
Below are some system specs. Hope I included everything needed.
Win 7 Pro 64 bit SP1
Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K @ 3.30 GHz
Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti
Direct X Version : DX11
I press the button Play, then Uplay says Game Runing but nothing happens. No window opening. And the strange thing is that the .exe file is runing and when I stop the .exe it says I played for x minutes. How can I fix it? I unistalled the game and reinstalled it. But now when I start the launcher it ask the CD activation code a second time. In other words I have two Asassin'sCreed 3 in my Uplay then. It shows it 2 times. But the one isn't registrated. When I try to registre the second one it doesn't work because I already used the activation key. But at the same time when I start the one I registred it says Game Running but nothing happens. What should I do? Need help!!!
