Ok, so yesterday I was finishing up my second playthrough of the game, and I found a strange glitch. Ok, so it is the part when lucy sits down at the table and has to upload Desmond's files to the database. I finished talking to her, and I was going to the room, and I accidentally walked him in to the part where her body met the table. Surprisingly, the game just "slid" Desmond's body up onto the table, obviously it had no animation, it wass never made to do that. But when I hopped off the table the game gave Desmond a landing animation, where he falls with his arms up and bends his knees when he hits the ground.

Strange that they would give the Desmond model an animation for something it was never ment to do...

Have you guys experianced anything like this?

(OMG it's teh bleeding effect, he's turning into Altair!!!!)

Yeah...if you turn on the game for a week straight...Desmond will eventually be able to do anything Altair can...then you jump out the window and free roam in the city outside!

For all those that thought the game ended...think again! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

in all seriousness guys:

It IS odd that Desmond has a collision animation for a fall..when he never falls down or steps off of anything in his time in Aspergo.

Maybe leftover code from Altair? I don't know. It's an interesting tidbit though.

maybe they use the same model or something for both of the charcaters.

If they used the same model for each character wouldn't they look identical? >_>

Loads of games have these things left over... just look at Hot Coffee http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Sickly funny, that's what it is... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Maybe they did use the same animation model for both characters, but they negated some of the button effects...

Like sprinting and running, and then at the end they assigned Eagle Vision to triangle/Y... maybe?

It's a lazy dev move... in a way... >_>

But that would explain the animation...

Same model - same animation.
They even walk identical....

The character models are pretty much the same, the look alike, walk alike, and Des even hits the ground like him. *Spoiler kinda* <span class="ev_code_WHITE">Plus you can steal as Des.</span>

Unrelated, but still kinda...

He's also the best match for the Animus I'd guess ,or they'd have gotten his Dad or Mom. Both are older, and possibly weaker and easy to keep there. And it's possible he's lying about not being an assassin...

That comment just made me spill my cherry coke all over my devboard. No really.

What so many people wouldn't give for an AO Scene voiced by Kirsten Bell. And since Lucy looks like Kirsten.. looks like Desmond is having a bit of Kirsten for dinner then, haha.

Back to the game, seriously.

Funny, we should look into that.
Desmond with a falling animation just shows that we're up for more Desmond. Wake up and smell the ashes, mr. miles. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The art book or something similar mentions every character in the game being altered from Alta´r's model. Perhaps when they made Desmond, they just took off everything, but left that falling animation because it was unlikely he'd use it (and if you did manage to get on top of something- what the hell, you'll have an animation falling so win-win). I don't know enough about animating models, but I assume Alta´r and Des are close enough to use the basics without horrible glitches.

Or perhaps at some point they were planning on having Desmond run off somewhere. Who knows.

hey i have a really gud image of altiars face alot like desmonds how do i attach it to my post and also sry that was off topic anywho once this game is going to be released on pc we will be able to remove the excess meshes and be left with the *base model* and then i spose we kuld compare but not only do we have no idea about what format the meshes would be in (well some idea) and i dont know wat format they wuld compress the data in meh also remeber the post a while back that was called altiar derobed or something and it had a video of this guy who somehow gliched of part of his robes leaing his pants and upper robe and hood but we kuld compare that becuase in one part of the video he jumps of something anywho sry that was long winded

I think that there is a certain window of time that the glitch can occur in. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif
