During the sequence 7 mission where you have to escorts the Prime Ministers wife back the slums It gets stuck on an infinite loading screen at the end of the mission. I can't do anything about it and Can't progress with the storyline.

Hey there. I am having trouble finishing the mission "Driving Mrs. Disraeli" - Seqence 7 memory 3, or rather I have problem after I finish the mission. It always goes into the saving screen (black with white circle going around) and just kinda freezes like that.. The white circle keeps moving, and F1 and F3 keys are bringing up apporpriate menus, and actually when I exit the menu and quickly press Esc I am able to go into game's main menu, but that's it. It will keep on being frozen for several minutes, restarting the checkpoint, the memory, quitting the memory and doing other memories instead, even quitting the game and uplay all do not work. I verified my files and all were OK.

Anybody else encountered this or similar issue? Anybody has some suggestions? I'll restart my computer as soon as I finish uploding to youtube, but that's the last thing I can think of to try.

It is this memory specific - I was able to get out of it and do both Evie's Sequence 7 memories and when I returned to this one, the issue turned up again.

Yeah I get that from time to time. I don't know if it's coincidence or superstition but hitting Back and Start at the same time on my controller seemed to get me out of it, but that might be an illusion (it's also possible that the game recovered all by itself). It made the screen flash green for a fraction of a second and then show the menu, then I resumed and all was fine.

It just happened to me now and I cannot continue... That is dissapointing. I repied the mission, verified game files and nothing, I'm STUCK!

EDIT

I managed to fixed it. The trouble was when I was in carriage Mrs. Disraeli finished talking sooner than I was able to get to the point. I simply get these thugs chase me a little and than I was able to reach the point before she would finish her talking and POOF! Magic happened ;)
Hope that helped.
Cheers!

I just returned here to tell exactly the same :D You need to make sure you get to the green mark before Mra. Disraeli finishes talking :D which is only possible if you are being chased, otherwise, even with boosting all the time, you just do not make it :D

I'm doing this mission transporting Mrs. Disraeli to the Devil's Acre. When I finish the section and transport her back the screen turns black. A loading screen for a very long time. It stops I get back into the game for 3 seconds and.... black screen followed by the circle thing on the right. What the ****? I can't even play this broken game, I validated the steam files. No fault. Restarted the game and computer. No fix.

I hope you [Removed] reply, after AC:U I can't stand any more of this ****.

I have the exact issue, this is sequence 7 with approx 20+ hours gameplay on a highend PC with zero issue & this has just killed the game if I cant resolve soon. I verified the game & all OK.

Please come down, this is a software and prone to bugs and issues especially when its a huge game, in every game there are bugs and sometimes its game breaking when following specific scenarios, however, this is a known issue and there is a workaround for it, i will lookup the thread for you:

Guys.. I encourage to search the forum, before posting it. I posted solution in this thread
http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1332667-Friendly-Competition-Mission-s-Side-Objective-is-Glitched

This is a open world game, think Open :D


eaglespath mind your tongue, which game does not have bugs??? Dont ever use the 'B' word on others , it is childish, uncivilized and indecent Behave

If you do not know how to play just don't, it is a minor issue and will be fixed soon, with thought it can be solved. So Never curse anyone here. Ask respectfully people like me will help.

There are two solutions for this bug either run fast enough to reach before conversation ends, or in the previous thread, this issue occurs on pearl attaway 100%. Take a different route. Scout routes in open world before you start mission. That's how I solved it, there is a shorter route

Me personally would have warned the user there is no excuse what so ever in using that sort of language to people. Someone needs to curb there temper and grow up !

I had exactly the same problem with the Uplay PC Version of this game.
Your solution worked, thank you.

Good call Thyrmd, do not take time to fight the thugs. Jump on the cart and take off, this delays the conversation from kicking off until you become anonymous. I played this scene 6 times and the conversation ended before I reached the destination. The 7th try I made it to the location and the game continued. Thanks for the input Thyrmd.

I have this issue as well, and it is hardly a "Minor issue." It's a major game-breaking issue, since you can't continue the GAME or the MAIN STORY. I'd say the frustration is warranted, although language may not be. I was having fun until this happened.

yep, also for me.
but i think ubi has to fix this asap, because it _is_ gamebreaking.. most gamers are as smart as to find online an acceptable solution - but without doing this ('tricking' the game) it's really weird when you reach this point in the storyline :/

It should come up as a desynchronization, not eternal save. Perhaps they should put a timer in also.

Same thing happens to me time & time again. Just keeps loading at the end.
I came here hoping for a temp fix, so thx to those who suggested to get to the point before she stops talking. I'll try that but ubi definitely need to fix this as many will ask for their money back.
