Hello everyone, tommorow the 15th of november ACR will be released world wide but for some reason i was already able to purchase the game 3 days earlier (the 12th of november) and i did and i finished the singleplayer, is there a reason that some stores sell it earlier then the release date and is it legal? (The same thing happend with Skyrim, you could also purchase it earlier then the official release date)

It's not legal per se, but it happens. It's usually just specific shops, not a whole company, so it's pretty much up to the managers.

What about the multiplayer mode in this situation, i purchased it for the xbox and i plan to buy xbox live gold to be able to play online. Im guessing there will be very few people online or that i wont be able to access their servers at all due to that tis not officially released yet so they havnt put the servers online yet, what do you think?

The servers are already online, though not much people are playing it since it hasn't been officially released yet.

So, you can play online already.

Ok thats pretty awsome, i purchased ACB 6 months ago (6 months after the release) because i really wanted to try out the multiplayer but when i intalled it and searched for a game, it would take about 30 minutes to finally get in to one, i really hope thats not the case with ACR

Don't get your hopes up.

The MP system for ACB (and ACR from what we've seen) is based round a Peer-to-Peer system, there are no dedicated servers hosting the matches, which makes finding a game (and waiting for the maximum required number of players) tedious at best, and a downright chore at worst.

It's the reason I personally don't bother with Multiplayer anymore, it takes at least 3 times the length of a session to actually get INTO one, so it's not really worth it.

Ubi could have done something great with the MP, but instead chose to use PnP match-making, instead of using dedicated servers.

Oh it use's peer to peer? too bad.. Dedicated servers would have been alot better.. We pay enough money for the game for them to buy a few dedicated servers but they choose the Cheap Way Out instead of what would be best for the players... Dissapointed.

Even with the small player base - I found a game within 20 seconds by hitting the default play now option.

The game now displays your NAT status, which can cause issues finding games if you have strict - which may have been a problem on the older titles [as with many other games].

This can help people solve NAT issues - since they may not be aware before that they have the issue - unless they check the network settings on the console.

Strict NAT is normally easy to fix - check the consoles website.

And before anyone says they never heard of it being a problem - or that every other game works well , NAT is a problem for many games, that's why they have warnings and status in game - in the likes of Reach and MW3http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

All in all - online is working well at present.

In online gaming I always have moderate Nat.


Though mysteriously I can could no longer host games for MGO (metal gear online) after some update back in early 09 but oh well.

Open NAT [or NAT Type 2 on PS3] is required by most games to host - since it allows the most players the chance to connect.


Moderate NAT may not be a problem, if your only joining games though.


You should look into if you can get NAT Type 2 - or Open NAT - since that will improve your gaming, by giving you more options http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Ah yes! I have heard something about Open Nat/Type 1 gives higher chances of playing onlnie, but the apple router we have here it's do dam confusing I don't know how to configure. I fortunate enough to know how to name it and put the password on it lol

I would need a visual to be able to reconfigure the oruter but...eh it's not too much of a bother, if I can play, im good http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

You should be getting NAT Type 2 - I'm assuming your on PS3?

I had that out of the box with the apple equipment.

That's classed as 'Open' - and the best you can get with using a router.

You can check your status by using the console and going to network settings / status http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

on Xbox, 'NAT Type 2' will show up as 'Open NAT' http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


Most new routers - have UPnP enabled - Universal Plug 'n' Play - by default which allows the console to open any and all ports to get Open NAT.


Some older routers - or ones set up by users, need it enabling - but it's a simple 1 minute job - assuming you know where to look http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Having more than one of the same type of console, eg you have 2 or more PS3's - can cause issues with it though, so worth considering.

Odd.

Since it should show up as 'open' - what game is telling you it's moderate ?

'Type 1: The PS3 is sitting directly on the Internet with a public IP address. This setup doesnít require NAT or inbound port forwarding and is used in scenarios where the PS3 is the only device wanting to use the Internet connection. This isnít that common as most users share their Internet connection with other devices in their home.

Type 2: This is the most common and ideal type where the PS3 is sitting behind a router that is performing NAT. The PS3 will have a private IP address which is translated to a private or public IP address by the router.

Type 3: This usually implies you have a problem in the way the PS3 is accessing the Internet. This may be caused by a firewall or port restrictions. This isnít ideal and will result in a sub-optimal gaming experience.

The difference between a Type 2 and Type 1 NAT is usually physical and canít be changed by settings alone. If you have a Type 2 or higher NAT type then you are connected correctly and can have an optimal gaming experience.'


But.. that's a subject for another thread, so I'll end this here, so we can get back on topic http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
