Since, for some strange reason, the 'PC: System Requirements' topic is gone (searched, even tried a link from Z in another topic). And we have like all these noobs asking about the pc-version, so I thought I'd make it into a general pc-thread, instead of just a system-requirements topic.
So, want to know if you pc might run AC? Need tips for upgrading your pc? Want to speculate why Ubi delayed the pc version? Here is the place for you!

P.S. No console-freaks that want to 'convert' us allowed http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Geez, why does it has to stand in the 'spoiler' part? I mean, that part is for help in the game (IMO), so that means spoilers, and I don't want spoilers.

I made this since I thought our old pc-thread was gone (but it was moved to the help section of AC; which is a place to ask 'how to do the 3rd mission?' or something IMO). And I maded it into a 'Great PC thread' to post in all pc stuff, so people would spam this thread with their questions, instead of a new topic each time.

Which, of course, also means they can ask/read about the delay there which is the most common topic if AC for PC comes in to mind at the moment. :P

Well, looking at the problems with PS3... are we supposed to take the "Double Agent"-syndrome into account... as in: bad porting coming up? If they are gonna port, they will probably take it from 360 version, which has less problems and all, but still...

I guess they won't make a cheap port, since they would be done faster if they would. They'd rush out a port before christmas, to get max. profit.

At this point I'm very happy with the delay of the PC version. Really. I had a lot of great PC games today to play, and when AC comes to PC on January or February, I'm gonna have more time to play it.

Despite, it has been demostrated that AC on 360 and PS3 have a quite few bugs...
And all we remember bad conversions from console to PC like Double Agent.

So, I hope this extra time helps Ubi to make a GREAT PC version of this game.

I don't dream with any new stuff on this version, even it would be soo cool.... DX10 functions, new missions, better graphics, etc.

I only want a GOOD PC version:

- Proper support for 4:3, 16:9 and 16:10 aspect ratio.
- Support for gamepads.
- No hardware compatibility issues. I want to activate AA+HDR ingame with no problem.
- Achievements on PC would be cool.
- Compatible with Xp and Vista.
- Many graphic options to tune performance/quality.
- Correct 5.1 and 7.1 sorround sound working.

And stuff like that..... I want to feel this extra time was profitable for Ubi and us, PC Gamers. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

11-22-2007, 09:05 AM
I wouldn't call it a proper pc version if it wouldn't have those features. Dunno if you mentioned changeable resolution, but pc's have way higher resolutions than consoles do (even the PS3 HD, that's not that high)
But achievements on the pc...? That would mean it would use WindowsLive? I don't like WindowsLive; something like Steam is free (which is something like WL)

I'd like to see DX10.1 features http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Since I'm probably going to get a HD3870, I'd love to have AC as first DX10.1-game http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

You missed his point....
On a PC a lots of mods can be done.
From a new weapon skin to a fan made multiplayer (like it was made in GTA).
However some developers may be disagreed about making online mods for their game - It could mess up the whole experience. Rockstar was agree...
So if some fans decide to create an on-line multiplayer and Ubi wouldn't mind - millions AC on-line users http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Compared to all the "Assassin's Creed is hitting bookshelves this November for the 360 and the PS3!" adverts and mentions, it's not that assuring. :P

A level editor is highly unlikely as the game has no multiplayer and such. If one does come, it'd only be used for extra areas with missions, perhaps, for which scripting would also be requiered. It would be tough to handle.

The coming PC version is not supposed to be a port, it's development started sometime after the PS3 and 360 versions', the new release will be designed for PC from mostly scratch.

Or atleast, I think so.

1 gb RAM
Geforce 6600 Gt 256mb or ATi Radeon x800

And recommended
core 2 duo 2.2GHz
2 gb RAM
geforce 7950 gt 512 mb/8800 gts 320 mb /Ati Radeon x1950 pro or better

Since I haven't played the console versions I can't say much, but it shouldn't be that difficult. For example you could just simply hold down a mouse button or a key such as E, then use the WASD keys to manouver your way while climbing.

I too am eagerly waiting for this to show up on PC!

my concern for this game is control, i want a good solid mappable keyboard&mouse control! i don't care much besides that. bugs and glitch are the most basic stuff, i don't even want to mention it. i don't mind extra stuff for PC, but i absolutely doubted that will happen.

i like ubisoft, they made many of their AAA titles on PC with solid good keyboard&mouse control scheme! althought there're some games relied too heavy on high end PC, i still have higher hope than other publishers/developers!

Okay, okay enough of all that.....anyway, after a thorough search on google, many sites stated the pc release date in feb 2008, one site(don't remember which) said 31 march, and Gamerankings somehow said 4th quarter 2008(huh?).It becomes evident that none of them actually know the actual date, and as its been said before,Ubi can't be bothered with telling us.....though on a different topic, Jade hinted that to run it you need a dual core processor running dx10 graphics
So does that mean we xp users all have to upgrade to vista?

I won't believe a DX10 only unless Jade says it right in my face.
It just doesn't make sense. Not many people have Vista and not all Vista-users have a DX10 card. There would be a tiny market. Also, the consoles don't have DX10, so why the heck would they throw all their DX9 stuff away and make a DX10-only game?

peeves87
12-08-2007, 04:11 AM
Yeah i hope so.But just because the consoles don't have dx10, it doesn't mean the pc version won't have it.Crysis will be downgraded graphically to run on consoles.But what about the release date?

I'm not saying PC won't have DX10, but it doesn't make sense to think that it will be DX10 only.

I'm almost certain that AC won't be DX10 only. Although it will have both DX9 and DX10 support maybe even DX10.1

@peeves87: no one really knows the exact release date so i wouldn't even bother going around some other sites looking for it. when the exact date goes public it will be on the Ubisoft main page so all we have to do is wait http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Im also waiting patently for this to come out on PC, DX10 features would be nice as well as 64bit support.
Im currently building an Uber Phenom system for this game with crossfire HD3000 cards...the whole spider platform.

And yes im glad that UBI for once seems to not be directly porting this to the PC from a console...thats getting old,just about every UBI game ive bought recently is a crappy port.

Whats funny to me is watching vids of a company making these games ON A PC, a bunch of them...so the PC version should be ported to the consoles:-)

I just have one question. Will I be able to run a game (doesn't matter which one) on Windows XP in DX10 and 64bit or do I must have Vista to do that? Because all I've heard is that DX10 is only available on Vista. Is there a version of DX10 that can go on XP? Same thing I'm asking about 64bit.

It isn't "real" Dx10, Dx10 on Vista handles graphics memory in a way that XP can not manage, Vista handles graphics memory as virtual memory, and XP leaves it up to the card.

And what do they say about it?? NOTHING!!! That's the problem, they dont say ANYTHING!! Maybe they will release AC2 first... maybe they're working on it and abandoned PC version!!

Yeah, the lack of mention of the PC version is worrisome for me too. I'm sure the PC version will come out, but the lack of mention seems to indicate that they don't really care about the PC version. I mean, if they cared enough to make a great PC version, wouldn't they also care enough to advertise to the world that that great PC version is coming?

Perhaps they are just holding off on the marketing until they can finally stop pushing back the release.

By the way, does anyone know if there will be a limited edition for PC? Or are we screwed out of that as well?

OK I'm half and half on this thread.

First of all, there has been an Ubi Moderator that has repeatedly say over and over and over again.

"Assassins Creed will be released for the PC early 2008; no official annoucement has been made giving an exact date by Ubisoft."

Now I'm like you; I'd love to hear the exact annoucement confirming an exact date, but we just have to be patient; I'm like you I have been waiting for this game ever since it was released on the front cover of a Game Informer Magazine. Ironically I even had a dream last night that Assassins Creed was turned into a movie but followed the beginning of the gameplay LOL which made me want this game even more.

I visited Gamestops website every day, I have the Assassins Creed for the PC bookmarked when I noticed that the date was changed from February 12th to March 25; also Amazon.com also showed it as March 25th.

March is still early 2008, so I can deal with that; 68days and 8hrs left til release hopefully.

Again YES I still want to hear news from Ubisoft listing the system requirements; I'm hoping that AC will be available for Direct X 10 but also for those that dont have Vista too.

But as moderators all over these boards repeatedly say:

AC will be released for the PC Early 2008

We all know games that get shipped out too early will only cause us hardship in the end as theres bugs galore; who knows maybe its in QA right now I dont know.

LOL again yes it would be nice if they posted a blog saying

January 10th 2008-Game 90% complete
January 11th 2008-Game 100% Complete now for QA Testers

January 12th 2008-QA Testing found 5 bugs, working on it

January 15th 2008-5 Bugs fixed; QA 50% complete, found another bug

January 16th 2008-Finalizing Optimization for DX10

Ya know; it would be nice to have a blog like that but thats only for us dreamers LOL

We just have to be patient and wait it out. Heck Crysis ROCKS; I just beat it, Crysis is due to be a trilogy was released in November 2007 I cant wait for #2 but no word on next release date; and my guess would be 2 years from now; which means 700+ days itching for Crysis Part Two http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Could this lack of attention mean that the game will be just an adaptation from consoles full of bugs?

we'll have to wait and see, but i would be 99% sure that this will be a highly unoptimised game on the PC, with only console resolutions and will probably be just about playable on an 8800 card, capped at 30FPS

I for one will not buy this under any circumstances until i see what issues people are having with the pc version for a few weeks after release, got burnt before, never again. The game looks cool though

The fact that there isint much press about the PC version leads me to think its a direct port with nothing PC specific and will probably be a rushed affair( even though its delayed ) because they concentrated their efforts on the console versions

I hope im completely wrong, but.......

I agree with most of what you and also how patient you seem to be.

Yet the other half of me, which tends to be the right side of my brain says this:

No matter what the reason for the pc delay, there are men in suits deciding the fate of the pc gamers.

This deliberate delay for reason untold are a slap in our face: and or embarrasment on behalf of the UBI owners.

Its tru;e that we do have games like Crysis, but they are not Assassins Creed.

Now the left side of my brain says/

THe devs are hard at work trying to perfect an already close to perfect game?

Hold on while I pull out my article for Assassins Creed that was on the front cover of Game Informer.........June 2006 page 52.

Yep at the time of press release they mentioned this:

#1: Playstation 3 only
#2: Release March (probably 07)

As time went on they announced that it will be on release for PC and XBox 360

Released November 2007; PC has a delay

Announced that it will be also available for Nintendo DS

All I can say was that there was another game that made an announcement that seemed like a really cool game but then I heard nothing of it; til all of a sudden this last week:

"The Crossing" a cross between Single Player and Multiplayer using Valves engine

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Crossing_%28video_game%29

My connection between the two? I'm sure they are working hard on making the PC Version and with luck they will deliver at the appropriate time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hmm interesting; apparently AC was in production since 2004 but keep in mind so was World of Warcraft that it was in production a good 3 years before release.

As Win XP 32 bit supports only like 2.75 GB, I guess 2 GB for XP is enough to meet recommended requirements for RAM? I mean- if it doesn't support 3 GB, why the hell would I buy it? ;p

Well, I don't mind if it's Vista/dx10 exclusive, but it wouldn't be Ubi's smartest move... seeing their current actions, I don't expect smart moves from Ubisoft. Suppose they even make it a Geforce 8800 GTX 512MB minimum...They're currently as dumb as SC1's AI.

I've been putting a lot of trust in Ubisoft, silly me, kick me for it... I've been putting up a lot of positive or semi-positive responses on these forums. Silly me, kick me for it.

What had me givin' up hope on Ubisoft's intelligence? One word: "INFORMATION"

Alright, the requirements are really official now, most sites put news about them, including the biggest Polish magazine's site, cdaction.pl

It says(translated by me)


Ubisoft silently revealed official system requirements for Assassin's Creed. As you can see, Crysis requirements weren't high after all...

To play Assassin's Creed, your rig has to have:

Supported OS: Windows XP / Vista (only)
Processor: Dual core processor 2.6 GHz Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ or better recommended)

Bleugh. . .

those specs are totally ****, its unbelivabe you people are assuiming they are even remotly accurate for a game like this.


First Up the processor Speed is Super High even The Crysis spec was not that high, how could a 3rd person perspectiave game like this use that kind fo power, there is very few Explosions, no Real time weather/day night cycle, the only thing i can think that would require shuch a high speed would be down to amout of NPC's on screen, and i'd assume that wont be ever so demanding, from what i have played the Physics in the game ( PS3 ) are well ver basic, therse not much on ballistic's/trajectorys that could cause any significant draw on any Processor over the Dual Core 1.7/2.0Ghz mark.

The main chunk is probbably rendering and shadows and that done on your GPu not CPU, and because of this and lack of many special effects like Fire montion blurr and partical effects im sure a 7600 GTX or around that mark would be More than efficant ( Unless running on a massive Screen at an obscen Rez 20" @ 1024 x 768 is more than average for gaming with out having to whack AA on )

RAM wise, as Xp does not support more than 2Gig standard (unless your 64bit or use the K Switch to enable up to 3.5Gb of RAM) so the 3gig seems to be like its a total geuss maby it would be required if using VISTA, but then people running vista and playing games are going to have good hardware anyways so as a minimum spec seems total ****.

Crysis Specs where high saying that a 8800 GTS ( 320mb edition ) would struggle to run on high settings on DX9. . . and my current set up is Q6600 @ 2.8Ghz/8800GTS 320/4 Gig OCZ Platnium DDR3 RAM & it trounces crysis with an average fps of 41, so i'd expect fromt his that assissins is going to be less demanding ( Unless the coding /scrypting it totally shoddy and there are memory leaks felt right and centre )
so most people with a Pc thats specced up to play BIOSHOCK/STALKER (AT HIGH)will be sufficent to run it at HIGH settings

However I think we should wait for the first PC reviews and see about the "actual" system requirements. After this "incident", EVERY review will mention it.


I got this game for X360, and even though the game has a really good graphic, I don't think it is technologically superior than Crysis (which I played at High on my comp). So, unless Ubi has done the worst Console to Pc Port in the history, I can't believe that requirements are true.

unless they poerted the PS3 then the code would be strange and the graphics would be higher than the 360 meaning it would take more to run since now the 360 is about the same spec as a mid ranged pc with a modified version of windows media centre edition so port it would be nothing more than make the files run from a harddrive instead of a disc and obviously broadening the spec for the pc varients.

it does use slightly differant code but for the most part its the reason most console ports come from the 360 as its basicaly a pc but the PS3 uses a totaly differant form of code and hardware setup so its alot harder to port from. vista (longhorn) at one point in alpha/beta actualy had the ability to play the original xbox disc witht he possibility to expand it to 360 it is also why live was orriginaly only going to be on vista. since microsoft make more from software and a loss from hardware so using windows would make more people able to get xbox games but for what ever reason most likly piracy and compatability of hardware they took it out.

ok, look what i've found, this is real deal.
------------------------------------------------
The specs for the PC version of Assassin's Creed have been officially unveiled. The minimums, they're a little steep. The recommended specs? They tower above you like a jagged-edged precipice, in some cases even exceeding those of current system-killing king, Crysis. Click through to see a comparison of the specs with those of Crysis, and you'll see why the majority of PC owners should, if they've got the option, just settle for a console version.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS

Assassin's Creed:

Processor: Dual core processor 2.6 GHz Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
RAM: 2 GB
Video Card: 256 MB DirectX 10.0-compliant video card or DirectX 9.0-compliant card with Shader Model 3.0 or higher
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0 or 10.0 compliant sound card
HDD Space: 12GB
DirectX Version: DirectX 10.0

Crysis:

Processor: Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz (3.2 GHz for Vista), Intel Core 2.0 GHz (2.2 GHz for Vista), AMD Athlon 2800+ (3200+ for Vista) or better
RAM: 1GB (1.5GB on Windows Vista)
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (Radeon X800 Pro for Vista) or better
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c Compatible
HDD Space: 12GB
DirectX Version: DX9.0c or DX10

RECOMMENDED REQUIREMENTS

Assassin's Creed:

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ or better
RAM: 3GB
Video Card: 512 MB Card
Sound Card: 5.1 Sound Card
HDD Space: 12GB
DirectX Version: DirectX 10.0

Crysis:

Processor: Core 2 Duo/Athlon X2 or better
RAM: 1.5GB
Video Card: NVIDIA 7800 Series, ATI Radeon 1800 Series or better
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c Compatible
HDD Space: 12GB
DirectX Version: DX9.0c or DX10

Hands up who has 3GB of RAM. Anyone? Anyone?

I agree...it's the possibility of the terribly written code that worries me. The PC version is suffering disappointment after disappointment and it hasn't even come out yet...

If it turns out that those are the real requirements then I will no longer be buying the game as soon as possible like I was planning to. My computer meets those specs but the code would have to be so insanely bad that I'd have to wait for the reviews before deciding to buy.

I'm still holding out hope that those will turn out to be fake. The insanity of the requirements, combined with the fact that they are being posted then removed then posted then removed, call them into question. I saw them mentioned on some other reliable game news site (I forget which) but I believe they are just getting them from the same place we first saw them, that weird custhelp.com site.

I've got 2.5gb of ram but the thing is ram is cheap can get a couple of gig for about £30 if you look around. also dont think that speck is very good as it says the min requirement is DX10 meaning the game is vista only and would probly have problems with anything lower than a geforce 8 as the cards bellow dont have pixel shader 4.0

I recently upgraded my computer to all this new gear, and with that put in 4GB RAM. Now what I found out about this, is that 32-bit Operating systems can only handle 3.25 GB of RAM, so to fully see my 4GB, I have to move to a 64-bit operating system. Right now, I'm currently on Windows XP Professional (tried Vista and same thing) 32-bit and on dxdiag, it is reading 3326MB RAM. My point is to all this, is that when games start asking for more than 3GB RAM, (which can be starting very soon!) 64-bit operating systems are going to be a mandatory requirement for games.


My Comp Specs:

Intel Core2Duo E6850 3.00GHz
OCZ 6400 4GB RAM (Comp reads 3.25 GB because of 32-bit limitation)
XFX GeForce 8800GTS 640mb
X-FI Xtremegamer Sound Card

I've got 2.5gb of ram but the thing is ram is cheap can get a couple of gig for about £30 if you look around. also dont think that speck is very good as it says the min requirement is DX10 meaning the game is vista only and would probly have problems with anything lower than a geforce 8 as the cards bellow dont have pixel shader 4.0 </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS

Assassin's Creed:

Processor: Dual core processor 2.6 GHz Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
RAM: 2 GB
Video Card: 256 MB DirectX 10.0-compliant video card or DirectX 9.0-compliant card with Shader Model 3.0 or higher
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0 or 10.0 compliant sound card
HDD Space: 12GB
DirectX Version: DirectX 10.0

now since that is the min and saying the dx version is 10.0 so that to me says it is only for vista since xp cant install dx10 and would require a dx10 card with pixel shader 4.0 all im saying is if it is saying that the spec probly isnt 100% acurate.

The game will be on XP Version also, little difference between XP and Vister will be mostly particles and sharper gamma in which you may not be bothered with as you play the game. The texture graphics MAY have little difference that will be hard to spot with the human eye.

By the way, the specs is be very high for this game (the so called next generation game, hmmm, I do hope so if the specs are this high). It does surprise me, not that I am worried on it, just that, if the specs are actually what they say it is, then they must do the PC version much better than the consoles and make a bang load of profit. With these specs, the PC version can outweigh consoles definately.

Not played a game yet that needed 3GB of RAM for recommendation, wow, well I do hope they make it worth wile.

I have checked many sites on the specs and it is possibly true that (quote: this spec has already been posted here) I post here is the most common one. All in all, it would be better to wait for UBI to comply on it, but hopes for a lesser spec is on a thin thread.

probly not as that isnt a dual core processor but then it may run on your pc just realy slow the most important thing tho with games like this is the graphics card that you didnt mention as with this you need atleast a high geforce 6 or a high end ati card.

Hi caswallawn-2k7, thanks for replying http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

sorry, i forgot to mention i have 2 of those processors (at least thats what it says in "my computer") that makes it a dual core processor.....right?

Through much effort i found my video card

Radeon 9800 series

Chip type: ATI Radeon Graphics Processor AGP (0x4e48)

DAC type: Interanl DAC(400MHz)

memory size: 128 MB

Adapter String: Radeon 9800 series

it's just the hyperthreading that makes it report 2 cpu's, the next model, the Pentium 4 D is a dual core, then came the core two duo cpu's
And your 9800 card is not a shader 3 card

Team_PrAna
01-26-2008, 09:44 PM
....Whats a shader 3 card? and is it required?

Can i add memory to my video card?

BTOG46
01-26-2008, 09:52 PM
according to the requirements going round, you'll need at least a radeon X1300, or a geforce 6600 card.
In other words, as far as the hardware pixel and vertex shaders are concerned, your card is only shader 2

Team_PrAna
01-26-2008, 10:01 PM
Hmmm....and how much would one of those cost?

peeves87
01-29-2008, 12:15 AM
Well the cost of a shader model 3 card depends upon how good the card is.You can get an Nvidia Geforce 7300 Gt for about 75$ (low end,not recommended),7950 gt for about 280$ an ATI X 1950 pro for about 175$ approx.(mid range), an 8600 gts 256 mb, but whats recommended is the new range of 8800 cards, like 8800 gs 384 mb (new for 170$) 8800 gt for about 250$, or the new 8800 GTS 512 MB for Assassins creed.The prices i quoted may not be accurate, but they are very approximate.

I'd really recommend getting it for consoles if you do not have the recommend requirements. You might be pissed o if you find out you can't run the game and then can't return it neither.

but you dont seem to realise for quite a few people who just need a new graphics card its a hell of alot cheaper than a ps3 or 360 if you look round.

Aaah!

I need help!

It seems my computer has been affected by viruses and spyware!

And I have no clue as to what to do!!! >_>

I seemingly have no spyware shield activated, and I need to do something quick, but I don't know what!
Sould I download some antivirus programme (I have Norton, but as a firewall), half the time I have no idea what I'm talking about.

And that's because when it comes to this sort of thing, I know not what to do!
I know nothing about computers and the such.

but I noticed that my home page has been changed, and I can't change it back, a new bar has also ben added to my browser, some sorta "security toolbar 7.1", which also has a security level bar (4 out of 10 it ways), and a block adware/ popups, and another thing that says remove spyware.

And I don't want to clivk on anything without knowing!

Help!

What browser are you using? it may just be an update, I've had problems with Firefox being unable to open my Imageshack account without having to log in, but it only happened after an msn live update.
I can open it ok from IE7, but IE has extra options now, so it might just be a flipping M$ update.
If you really want to scan for spyware etc. try the online scan here:
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
or here:
http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner
there are others you could try too, but these should find any problems.

Thanks BTOG.

I found this awesomevideo (http://www.cyberwalker.com/video-demos/antispyware.html), and it taught me a thing or two.

So I decided to go for the Windows Defender, and it's now scanning my computer.

I'm also trying that second link of yours, doesn't hurt to get a second opinion.

I was using explorer, and it's the one with the home page change and the weird toolbar.

I just switched to Firefox, but for some reason it wasn't letting me type on the forums, only read. >_>

This sucks... >_>

I am getting 50 different "warning worm/trojan/ whatever" threats and security alerts at the same time... >_>

I'm not even bothering with "x"ing them all...

Hope this works...

I feel a little ripped off.
I have pre-ordered and paid for both the Black and White editions for the PC only to find out on the supposed release date that they are not available yet and they have no idea when they will be available. I was told maybe sometime next year.
So much for that Christmas present.
