As I was watching forum, i didnot see anyone doing it so .. I am doing it again ... its 16th november 6:30pm here ..
15 days of october and 18 days of november .. that makes it 33 day to go... !

After watching demo videos .. my hopes are a bit down as i thought there would be an element of multiplay .. 2 characters to be played by two different players .. but alas .. still its good

I only started playing Assassins Creed this summer when steam had their annual "Steam Summer Sale". I bought Assassins Creed III and that was that- I'm hooked.
Just finished Unity a week ago and bought Creed 1&2 pack at Amazon and Black Flag/Liberation. Going to be Assed-out before Syndicate arrives! lol

Seeing any ac game for the first time is brilliant. Revelations is awesome.

Well I am a huge AC3 fan... and AC4 is so close (it's better but I love AC3) but there are a few people who miss Ezio so after 3 games with him... they weren't as appreciative of Haytham and Connor as I am.

30 days of new laptop before Syndicate... how many games do you think you'll get in before Syndicate ? ACIV BF took me 3 weeks because I loved the sailing so much I refused to fast travel (and I just liked sailing around :D ) Unity is HUGE .... AND it has the Dead Kings DLC free.... If you can manage 2 games it will need some long sessions of exploration. (Also Syndicate is even 30% bigger than Unity)

that depends on how much time i can give. i have started playing ac3 on my current laptop a month ago, and I am still at 7th sequence ... so i dont think i can do much in this one month period .. and ac3 is very small ... compared to what acbf is ... :D ... so it will take a long long time ... ...

I cannot wait until we get DX12... I hated windows 8 it was completely alien to me. But windows 10 seems so natural again.... which is good because DX12 will unlock so much more in games. I'm not sure if Syndicate will use DX12 though... I think it may be a bit too soon to see games using it but I hope I'm wrong. I get the feeling DX12 games will be 2016.

I think AMD can use 1 part of DX12 very well but Nvidia cards will be able to use DX12 fully.

@Mr_Shade Yes it will be nice to use a keyboard again and actually know what I'm doing... I had some great team work at the EGX which stopped me looking like a complete noob in The Division... awesome game, and Rainbow 6 Siege... I got totally destroyed but it is so much fun it didn't matter. But Syndicate, even with the controller the combat is incredible the combo moves are great, I'm setting myself a 1st target of 25 combos and I'm throwing down the gauntlet to all challengers.... screenshots as proof.... highest combo numbers.... :D

I thought I should say this. Over the years Assassins Creed on PC , has had medicore launches (exception: Rogue)

Console has huge market compared to PC , so why should Ubi care? Here is why

1. PC market even if small, has customers, every customer matters. If a good job is done, you gain more fans
2. When it comes to consoles, Ubi is limited a lot by hardware, there initial design is always toned down, But with PC they can showcase true powers of their technology
3. PC gives Ubi the best platform to showcase, to get people in awe of their technology. Delivering a high quality version is always satisfying to devs too

Why Syndicate PC version has a unique opportunity

1. This year, PC market has been stormed with some really bad PC "ports", so bad that some of them have been pulled out of sales. If Ubi gives a good PC version, their probability of gaining more fans , is higher, considering the mood many PC gamers are in.

2. AC being their biggest franchise, good products from it will always yield better results

to talk fair, the ac syndicate will be much better than the earlier unity version.

strigoi1958
10-31-2015, 10:41 PM
I expect they're really working to set the specs as low as possible without affecting quality. I enjoyed the console quality so that would be enough for me. Maybe they're trying to use DX12 ? or Nvidia are trying to add something ? I don't mind if the specs don't release until the 19th a I will not be altering my system... but I'm sure Jessi wants to know which GPU to get... a 970 is great as we know but if she could get by with something a little cheaper for a year and then upgrade then... it would be nice.

RVSage
10-31-2015, 10:49 PM
they should get the specs or some promotion out next week, They need to market the PC version better. If dx12 is indeed part of the game, it is huge. Yup jessi should go for a refurbished gtx 970 perhaps

strigoi1958
10-31-2015, 10:57 PM
I think the 970 is the best option at the moment... the performance across current AAA titles is still awesome and easily the best value.

Well it's probably best if they don't say they're trying to do something then find it cannot be added in time... there are too many waiting to say "you promised us this where is it ?" better to see if something can be added or altered then just release it as a surprise.

damn it ... so now i am stuck at my pc without any future predictions at all ... this sucks ...

the biggest punch on me regarding the laptops was when i saw the gameplay videos of unity on titan x in 4k on youtube, there was so much detail that my mouth was watering too much, hell .. why would i buy a laptop and miss all this fun, titan x is almost 1000 dollar in price. even if i cant get it at the moment i can still make a pc which i can upgrade with a better card ...


someone please recommend me some good specs ...



I finished ac3 ... now trying to finish the side missions and with the razer cortex i managed to play it on medium settings, that was a good experience, i was always a ranter of ac3 game, but after playing it at medium i think its the problem with the low settings that made me feel bad, no wonders, all those who can play ultra settings in game dont have anything to rant about ... it was the first time ac3 was fun playing ...

AC Unity didn't get a game works video until like 2 weeks before release.

Same with Black Flag

Nothing different about this year.



I'm pretty excited, actually. It would be sweet if, in addition to the usual HBAO, PCSS, and TXAA treatment (which is great in of itself), we get DX12 support and the tessellation game works that Unity was supposed to get.


My life would be complete


To be honest, I actually think the PC ports have been getting steadily better throughout the years. I mean, AC really only became a graphically intensive series starting with AC3. The AC3 pc port was crap, AC4 port was bad, and Unity was meh. Unity on PC runs WAYYYY better than AC4. With DX12 support and the advantage of an extra year of engine polish, they have all the tools necessary to make the PC version really shine. I hope they don't waste this opportunity.

Good specs for a future proof game machine (atleast 3 years the way i see it)
i5-4690 or i5-6600
gtx 980 ti ($600) or gtx 980($500) or 970($350) (price dependent,you sacrifice some settings accordingly. 980ti and 980 can do 1440p at great settings, 980ti can do 4k, 970,980,980 ti are 1080p beasts.)
600w psu
get a SSD if possible
16GB RAM good enough another 4 years

Intel's integrated GPU design is horrible and extremely limited by area . It is always expected to see really unstable behavior when pushed, it is basically not the software, but the hardware that taps out.

I'm off to sweep the cellar for being unworthy ;) thank goodness for co-op so I got all the sync points. That's what I love about AC games, it gives us many different ways to excel so we all get a chance to show what we can do...

I'm off to sweep the cellar for being unworthy ;) thank goodness for co-op so I got all the sync points. That's what I love about AC games, it gives us many different ways to excel so we all get a chance to show what we can do... I always like it when I see someone doing something really well especially when I know how difficult it is for me.

I hope when the challenges start in the ubi club we can set challenges for friends. I enjoy a challenge.

Ya challenges are really good, can't wait. Assassins Creed seems to be the only game series I will be playing here on. I was a Arkham series player, and it ended. Dunno what I will get into next. Thank god AC is an annual series. It has been the best game I have played ever. Because it combines a classic (parkour) in a more detailed way, a nice story (God I love stories, Novel worm), I am also a history fan. Now If all of it comes together as one. That is what AC is to me. Bonus open world exploration. I liked watch dogs for similar reasons, and combined lot of techie stuff (I am a techie too). These games relate to me well. And playing them in the best possible way with challenges is always great :)

Yes, they posted the specs about 2 hours after my post, but my i7-2600K is a bit below the i7-3770 so I might still need to upgrade...

There's not a lot between them and as you have a K model you could overclock it a little if you want to and haven't done so already... but the 2600k should be very close :D as long as you have a good gpu, you should be fine.

There are a quite a few threads about Unity screenshots ... probably a few pages back and I posted some amazingly detailed pictures with my 970 at 1080p the quality is superb and if you use DSR it is even better (better still if you are using 1440p)

My CPU is slightly overclocked to 3.4 GHz, but as it's 4 years old it's starting to become borderline for newer games, hence I've started to look at upgrading to an i7-6700K.

I think the 2600k is good enough for another year and I've seen them clocked a lot higher. The 970 is good as well. I recently changed from an i5 3570k @4.2 ghz and a 970 to an i7 6700k @4.6 ghz with a 980 ti and apart from more fps in benchmarks there's no difference visually.

GhostAssassinLT
11-06-2015, 06:44 PM
Yeah. I bet I can clock it a bit higher considering I have a Corsair H50 liquid cooling system, but I'm not geeky enough to bother to learn how to over clock, I just used one of the standard OC profiles in the UEFI. :p

Edit: I googled for overclocking sabertooth p67 and after about 5 minutes I found a great post that explained how to overclock my system, so I went to UEFI and after a few clicks I managed to get my CPU to run @4.6 GHz. I played AC Freedom Cry for a while and the system was rock solid.

strigoi1958
11-07-2015, 12:07 AM
I think I've seen one clocked a bit higher air cooled so water cooled is safe... if you have any problems with games you can lower it to around 4.2Ghz which is still awesome. but you probably will not need to do that :D

There's still no need for that if you're playing games at 1080p. It would be wise if you wait for new Pascal cards.

I like HBAO+ better lighting... Not a fan of TXAA. PCSS , It is hard to see the difference between it and high shadows, when immersed in the game, you have to mostly pause to see difference. If PCSS does not impact performance as it did with Unity it will be turned on. else No Thank you, I am happy with high

HBAO and soft shadows are extremely important for me lol.

Don't know what the heck you guys are talking about not being able to tell the difference between soft and high shadows lol. It's one of the biggest, blatant improvements, even more noticeable than HBAO vs SSAO

In terms of TXAA, I usually don't use it because TXAA tends to blur the image a lot, but this rendition seems to be a lot less of that

strigoi1958
11-09-2015, 05:07 PM
no... RVSAGE said while immersed in the game he didn't see the difference... and I totally agree, I'm not looking at the shadow of leaves when in combat

I really dislike certain settings in certain games. looking at the nvidia sliding bar pictures TXAA, HBAO+ and PCSS look worse to me... it's all down to personal preference :D luckily options means just that... we can all choose what looks best for each of us... (with the exception of those who think all games must be run at max regardless of whether it looks better or worse :( )

TXAA and PCSS both look blurry to me and although pcss may look a little more realistic it just looks out of place and completely wrong to me. It's strange we have spent years trying to improve graphics and make them clearer and sharper and now we add settings that blur things to resemble the poor resolution we played on years ago :D maybe that's why they look bad to me... it reminds me how bad graphics used to look.

HBAO+ just makes things look too dark for me... it means losing detail in dark areas which can be overcome by turning up brightness, and at my age I don't need any more eye strain from monitor glare :D

As strigoi pointed..I never said PCSS does not make a difference, in flow of a mission, you rarely focus on the shadows, the lighting is more relevant in that case, that is why i like HBAO+ , PCSS is good , but I really notice the difference when I stop to admire scenery, or I am in a mood to take some excellent in game screenshots. It makes a difference no doubt. But in unity , it did have impact on performance, if it is not the case in Syndicate, I would love to turn it on. As of TXAA , i hate it for the very reason you mentioned , I prefer MSAA or its variants.

that's because (not counting the rest of today) there is the 17th and the 18th (2 days to go :)

plus you're an hour ahead of me and RV is 4 hours 30 minutes ahead of you... if Syndicate became playable at midnight local time RV could play in 2 days 8 hours and 10 minutes :)

I've bought a few steam games that became playable at 1.a.m or 6.a.m and a few that released in the afternoon so I know what you mean by 3 days not 2...

Hi. Sorry but I have a question: if I buy the "Big Ben Collector" from Uplay Shop, I can immediately download game when it's available or I have to wait for the delivery of the game? Thanks.

If you buy a physical copy, you'll have to wait until you receive it.

@Spikey.... OMG if you listen you'll hear my jaw hitting the ground ;) I don't know if I've mentioned this or not but I do a free figurine cleaning service... just pop them in the mail to me and I can have them looking like new and returned in 20 to 30 years ​Beware of the small print ;)

I got the gold edition, and I received two keys I guess one for the Season Pass and one for the Game, is that right? I already preloaded and I'm just waiting for release tomorrow, however I do not see any dlc folders on the Syndicate folder. And will there be a Day 1 Patch?

strigoi1958
11-18-2015, 06:40 PM
It is normal for all games to have a day 1 patch (or usually within 3 days) because 400,000 players will find a teething problem quicker than 1000 testers ;) and yes your second key will be the season pass.

Thank you very much for your prompt response, and is it normal that I do not have any dlc folders (pre order bonus and gold edition stuff) yet? Will these be created tomorrow?

strigoi1958
11-18-2015, 06:49 PM
I would think so... they probably do not create them until they are needed. Enjoy the game (I have the gold edition as well) and welcome to the forum :)

Anyone have an "un-lock" time for the game? Steam page says 8hrs from now, which puts it at 5am tomorrow, most games unlock around midnight, even if count down timer says other wise and I know it can also depend on the developers wanting to un-lock simultaneously world wide, usually picking a US coast as time zone deadline.

that's normal... I wondered if it was going to be different this year... and in a way it is... it used to release across the USA first and everywhere else a day later but this year we all get it at exactly the same time... unless your DVD has arrived :)

Looks like no drivers before launch. Very very strange, not even a beta driver is there. Something really wrong from NVIDIA's side

Well, they released Drivers last week for fallout 4 witch was the day before, but with them came Battlefront and Starcraft II, the later released this week, so strange that they didn't bring in syndicate on that release :S

I'm home and off to a really good start. :rolleyes:
I insert the first disk and start Autorun.exe, Uplay needs an update that it downloads, installs and then Uplay restart and I get a message that Uplay can't run because of a missing .dll-file, so I have to uninstall Uplay, loose a bunch of downloaded games and then reinstall Uplay. After that I can finally start installing Syndicate...

I'm just guessing ... 3 weeks is a nice round figure but I don't know, :D

@Mr_Shade Yes it will be nice to use a keyboard again and actually know what I'm doing... I had some great team work at the EGX which stopped me looking like a complete noob in The Division... awesome game, and Rainbow 6 Siege... I got totally destroyed but it is so much fun it didn't matter. But Syndicate, even with the controller the combat is incredible the combo moves are great, I'm setting myself a 1st target of 25 combos and I'm throwing down the gauntlet to all challengers.... screenshots as proof.... highest combo numbers.... :D
