I feel bad for ubisoft because they are getting so much negative feedback about performance issues ect now personally I think some people don't know what the hell they are doing with pc's and because their having issues they point the finger at someone else. I am having 0 issues with this game yeah there's a few bugs like pop ins ect but that can easily be fixed as for my rig I'm running 4670k, evga 6gb 780 without any issues mostly 55/60fps dips down to 50 in some area's. People that don't know what their doing with pc as in like how to do a proper clean install of graphics driver or making sure the pc is removed from crap like old files that are just lying around also making sure there isn't any demanding stuff running in the background ect. But anyway here's my youtube clip of maxed out 45/55fps while recording. If you are running nvidia try having driver vsync on and in game vsync off. As for AMD users I don't know what I can recommend for you's because AMD is a buggy mess

Ok, I can help you:
acinitiates (which blocks some content) is almost broken
uplay win doesnt work for the last 24h

thats after playing this game for 3h (i refuse to proceed before that **** is sorted out)

Hi, the issue is when you've played for some hours and get to the southern part, it has nothing to do with pc specs, the game crashes when you enter southern areas, not to mention the app, initiates and uplay win

I DL'd the new NVIDIA drivers and the patch, have had very little issues with the game. It's almost complete for me. I completely empathise with people who have had issues, but can say that I am not one of those affected and the game runs fine.

Some people think 60+ fps is how all should be i give up explaining to them. 30 frames is fine this not a first person shooter when it drops below 25 is problems HZ and FPS runs kinda hand in hand. If you been playing at 60 in all games kudos to u for that. My monitor is not a G suck i mean sync. Its a standard 60hz 2ms response so anything over 30-60 doesn't really show. There are plenty videos out there why 30 vs 60 can be explained.

I love these guys ... the ones that act like no one else is even capable of knowing anything about computers. Trust me, guy, the issues we're being plagued with are not the result of our hardware configuration, drivers (and when was the last time that "deleting old files" even made a noticeable improvement in ANYONE'S system? ... What are you running? an Amiga?) Many of us are more than aware of how to monitor our resource usage as well, again, these issues are related to the faulty programming of the ACU software ... not our systems.

It's *that* attitude, right there. You don't know more than anyone else on the planet. You're not the only one who knows how to maintain hardware. Also, define "Most people"? Most out of what crowd? Out of how many? Did you hear the majority of them say this? Or are you just spouting off completely inaccurate quantitative nonsense to make an invalid point?

For the longest time "Most people" said the earth was the center of the universe, and that the sun revolved around it, etc. etc. ... look how that turned out. People can be wrong (much like you are, right this moment). You're not the only one on the planet with knowledge of hardware maintenance. You also say "It's not our fault", like you're part of some sycophantic club of lapdogs because you know a little bit about BASIC maintenance. You strike me much more as the type that learned a little something about typical PC upkeep, and now want to strut around as though you're god's gift to technology. The world doesn't revolve around you, this is a known scientific fact, and yet your attitude leaves me believing that you truly might think it does, regardless.

Also, back on point, the primary complaints on this forum are not even related to performance, they're related to the game-shattering programming failures that ACU shipped with. No amount of state-of-the-art hardware can overcome bugs that are not hardware-related. Knowing that, though, would require reading before firing off you unwanted arrogance into the forums ... so I can understand if you missed that part.

There's also the fact that you've been playing the game for an hour? two at most? ... You haven't even gotten to the areas where the bugs are present ... so you're speaking without any sort of experience with the matter whatsoever ... but again, not surprising.

"Looking after your PC" has nothing to do with the commonly experienced bugs in this game, or they wouldn't be PATCHING THEM in the first place.

I've got a custom built gaming PC, and I'm well aware of how to take care of it. I also have had all kinds of stuttering and crashing issues. The console versions of the game have also had all kinds of performance issues, despite being completely static, closed hardware platforms - I suppose people haven't been "looking after" them either?

You are either being disingenuous, aren't far enough in game to have experienced some of the showstopping bugs, or have a particular hardware configuration that has fortunately spared you from them. Congratulations. Go enjoy your game, instead of ignorantly assuming everyone else just doesn't know how to maintain their PC.

So if everybody and their mother is having issues but you don't your thoughts are that everybody else doesn't have a clue about computers?
WOW, that's some deep thinking.
Look, pal, i've been using computers for more than 30 years, and i can probably teach you a couple things about software architectures and hardware configuration, yet i get stuttering and lag spikes all over the place with an hardware configuration that's way beyond not the reccomended, but even the optimal suggestion. I'm using the GPU brand they are sponsorizing (a smokin' 780Ti Dual Classified by EVGA, non the less) and an extreme series processor from Intel (3970x), the most common CPU brand. Everything driver wise is up-to-date and i have no issue at all with any other game. You can bet your buttocks i made clean installation of drivers (do "driversweeper" and "ccleaner" ring some bells?) and removed everything that was possibly interfering with performances.
The everloving truth is that the game is badly optimized, period. The fact that it may run alright on a couple hardware configurations doesn't mean the game works fine and everyone is dumb. It just means you won the configuration lottery by chance. Also, i'd like to know what graphical options are you using. If you are running the game without AA nor V-Sync, just to say, it's not like it's a big success by your behalf.
BTW, i'm running 60FPS myself at 1920x1200, but there's plenty of hiccups and stuttering and the frames may drop occasionally down to 34-35 per second, leading to noticeable lag spikes.
And that's AFTER i removed motion blur and Vsync from the in-game options, using Adaptive V-Sync instead (which gives me lots of tearing), because with V-Sync on the game stutters like nuts even in cutscenes.
What's funny is that i had the very same issues with Black Flag but they were COMPLETELY solved by using D3Doverrider to activate V-Sync and triple buffering instead of the in-game option, which proves the game has pretty bad coding. If an external, 3 years old little software can handle triple buffering while the game itself can't, that's bad programming. I would use D3Doverrider even with Unity to patch the mess they can't deliver themselves, but unfortunately the program doesn't work on native 64-bit softwares like this game.

P.S. Just watched the video. V-Sync off, 16:9, FXAA...that tells me everything, thanks. I can run a solid 80FPS with those options. Do you think you are playing the game optimally like that? You are basically using fake AA and allowing screen tearing for FPS greed. FPS means nothing, i'd prefer to play the game at 30 FPS with no spikes if that meant solid graphic quality and no tearing.

Uhm...to further experiment with the configuration of the video you posted, i tried FXAA with V-Sync enabled and it actually run pretty smoothly at constant 60FPS.
Yet it still shows occasional hiccups from time to time and it also bugs me that i have to use poor antialiasing to run a game that should run effortlessy on my rig, theoretically. The fact you have to lower the options on a powerful machine like yours is a good indication that the game is poorly optimized.

Uh...sorry if i jumped at your throat, then. I thought you were just neglecting the poor optimization of the game. I apologize.
45 fps without AA shows, indeed, some issue that goes beyond the game itself. That person has probably software or even hardware issues. Overheating maybe? It can lead to horrible underperformances.
Still, having to resort to a "trick" like FXAA is beyond belief. You have seen the graphics quality of the game. There's certain improvement from Black Flag, especially in face details and animations and in texture quality, but it's not like the graphics are groundbreaking or anything. It should theoretically handle 4X MSAA without killing the framerate the way it does. And some of the stuttering is outright unexplicable.

Anyway, i STRONGLY reccomend anyone who is experiencing issues to use FXAA as well. The frame gain is impressive and i didn't notice any visibile blur in this specific game, so far. Until they patch the game (if they ever will), it's your best shot at having a smooth running game. MSAA kills it.

It doesn't "break" the game in respect that it stops me from playing, but I hope its something that can be fixed. You can see it throughout your videos whenever you are around people, another great example is @ 3:39 as you start walking along the huge crowd, people are changing their clothes on the fly :P

remember you play with a xbox controller so do I it seems the game reacts smoother with it and less lagg input as with keyboard.

yeah I use 360 for all games apart from if I'm playing fps online but yeah the 360 controller provides much smoother gameplay imo. I have a 1000hz but it still feels a bit choppy even when playing fps games online I like to use the controller but I know I'll get my A** kicked online lol :(

Uh...sorry if i jumped at your throat, then. I thought you were just neglecting the poor optimization of the game. I apologize.
45 fps without AA shows, indeed, some issue that goes beyond the game itself. That person has probably software or even hardware issues. Overheating maybe? It can lead to horrible underperformances.
Still, having to resort to a "trick" like FXAA is beyond belief. You have seen the graphics quality of the game. There's certain improvement from Black Flag, especially in face details and animations and in texture quality, but it's not like the graphics are groundbreaking or anything. It should theoretically handle 4X MSAA without killing the framerate the way it does. And some of the stuttering is outright unexplicable.

Anyway, i STRONGLY reccomend anyone who is experiencing issues to use FXAA as well. The frame gain is impressive and i didn't notice any visibile blur in this specific game, so far. Until they patch the game (if they ever will), it's your best shot at having a smooth running game. MSAA kills it.


have you got driver vsync enabled too? I noticed also setting pre rendered frames to 1 can solve stuttering/choppy frames but it can look less smooth compared to the default 3 frames. I haven't tried it on this yet but I might give it ago and see what the pefromance is like and if it makes it smoother. I know half life 2 is much smoother with 1 frames same goes for call of duty ghosts that was a choppy mess when the frames were set to default in the nvidia control panel. I hope far cry is a bit better! can't wait to play that game it looks amazingly good.

I didn't notice significant differences between enabling Vsync from the in-game options or from Nvidia control panel, in fact. I'm using the in-game option, enabled.
I'll give a try to prerendered frames=1 as well, thanks for the advice.

adaptive vsync makes it silky smooth but can't bare that tearing!

I done a bit of playing about and setting pre rendered frames to 1 in the nvidia control panel reduced cpu usage by like 10/15% in areas where it was at 100% are now down to 85%. the only bad thing is the game doesn't feel as smooth!

I'm not using adaptive Vsync, i'm using regular Vsync. It works just fine now that i lowered AA to FXAA.
