Is there a patch for PC being developed for Ubisoft? It would be nice to have full screen on my LCD @ 1280x1024 too.

Don't hold your breath.



No, on second thought, hold it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

Full screen just press alt + enter and repeat it again to go back windowed.

That's sweet of you to try, twistedesthetic, but jeremyofmany here doesn't like the fact that he's using a fullscreen display, and AC produces a widescreen image. You know, the black bars on the top and bottom? JoM wants them filled in.

Personally, I feel more like I'm actually in the game, seeing what's going on, and all. Widescreen, though inefficient with screen real estate on fullscreen displays, seems much more like the human field of vision.

JoM could also have used the Search feature to look for the word widescreen (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=search&reqWords=widescreen&use_forum_scope=on&forum_scope=5251069024), for instance, and found the answer to his question without actually asking it.

Ah, I thought it meant something else...Oops. I prefer widescreen instead of fullscreen

My question was not specifically about widescreen. I actually did not mention it in the form of a question. It was a mere comment.
I looked at the stickies and recent topics and did not see anything directly regarding a patch which is why I created this topic.
Please do not assume I am a n00b. I am a member of at least a dozen of forums. I am most active on MSFN.org (5696 posts) and have been there since June of 2004.
I also go to NeoWin and DriverHeaven on occasion.

I see the issue of full screen versus widescreen is a matter of preference.
I have no problem with the widescreen as I am not picky when it comes to games. I enjoyed the game. My main point is that every other game I have ever played is in full screen so it is strange for AC to become the minority.
Widescreen on a full screen 17" LCD @ 1280x1024 *sounds* silly but I simply stated that it would be nice.

Regarding "human field of vision", I don't agree.
Same with digital/video cameras. The lense is circular however the image is square/rectangle.

As to the likelihood of a patch, I'd say that these days that's more or less guaranteed in PC games, but what a patch may contain is something that only Ubisoft will know at this stage.
