Hi people,

Do not know if this has been decussed in the past but i am a bit confused with ac2.

The currency in the game is franks but in fact it was lira in the 1800's.

confused!!

Did they no do there research on this?

OMG!!!!! Obviously you didn't pay any attention to the game at all or do research yourself! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

The currency is Florins!

"The Italian florin was a coin struck from 1252 to 1523..."

Quote from Wikipedia!

Hope that clears it up for you!

Well he was right... In the 1800's there was THAT currency... But he didn't know the game was in the late 1400's to early 1500's... He must not be a good fan

Actually the game doesn't go into the 1500's. The last sequence is in 1499.

Also, a bit more trivia for you: The Frank is a French currency that was replaced with the Euro just a few years ago.

It's been brought up before. I'm sure.

and another piece of info, the swiss still use francs, as they are not part of the EU and have kept their own currency :P
