I bought FC3 last night and downloaded over the night. Came home today and it was finished. Downloaded the new Uplay. When entering the new Uplay I went to "My Games" and FC3 was not there. Did not know what to do. Checked the forums and only found a few threads...dunno really how to navigate the technical forums they look like a mess. Looked for a contact # but couldn't find one.
Of course I got frustrated as I haven't had to really figure out how to get my game to work in this manner in a while due to Steam being so pleasant. Called Gamestop since I downloaded it from them, which was a joke.
I watched TV for a while and I had an idea. I closed Uplay and clicked on the "play" button in the Gamestop download app. restarted Uplay and it was there. Frist....it's not Gamestops fault. Uplay should recognize the game is on my PC....Origin does.
Went to activate my game with the code I was given after installing and a message came up saying "cannot activate your product b/c the Uplay servers are busy or offline" or something.
Now I'm really frustrated. Ate lunch.....decided to try again. No dice. Restarted Uplay....and there it was FC3 activated. Now I'm downloaded the latest patch.
These were simple things that I had to do....but were unnecessary. Uplay is second rate and right now I don't even want to be at my PC b/c I'm so frustrated.
Kiss my money good bye b/c as long as there is Uplay, I'll be skipping Ubisoft games. I have over 60 games I haven't even touched yet so it's not like I'll need any any time soon.
Now after patch 1.02 it will not start b/c the patching system is complete trash. IF THE "QUIT" BUTTON ON THE PATCH DOWNLOADER IS AVAILABLE THEN I'M GOING TO THINK I CAN CLOSE THE THING. I GUESS I HAVE TO WAIT 15 MINUTES OR SO FOR YOUR PATCH TO TAKE EFFECT AS GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT, RIGHT!?!?!?
Long story short I bought FC3 through Gamestop digitially. It downloaded to a folder I specified. I went to uninstall the game when the patches did not work and the files in the folder from the GS were still there. So I deleted even though I didn't want to but there was no other way.
There were 2 files left in that folder that Windows will not let me delete. "CopyRegValues" and application and "launcher.rgm".
Now, I'm downloading the game again through Uplay. So where does it download to?
