And it's Monday for the next 12 hours - dates quoted etc - will be CET, so it's expected to be out sometime today.

I am hoping this patch is going to resolve all the major problems as promised. if not them I'm done with your employer.

Because a day is 24 hours long?

... Technically it's not promised to fix all major problems as far as I've seen but it is offering to provide many improvements.
(Never going to help all those in denial with below spec machines though, even though it can run Crysis/Farcry 3 on max settings or whatever...)

I do hope it gets rid of my intermittent 10-20 second freezes where the game just stops for some reason every now and again (maybe 0-2 times an hour or so) and then carries on again.

just a suggestion mr shade. i think whoever is responsible for the release announcement should state a date one day late while planning to release it the day prior to it. with that, whoever got it early would be thanking instead of like right now expecting it to be done 12 oclock their time .

and it kinda give us the good feel to be able to download it on the day it was announced to be released

it's very simple...ac:u comes from ubi montreal and for those guys it's now lunchtime, so do the math: they have still 12h time. so expect the next attempt to fix all the bugs, especially fix those bugs for me, which i hadn't until patch #3, until 12hours from bow on. if you wanna wait, do it...but i had better things to do as to wait for another disappointment

For the love of all things good, guys...

Ubisoft is based in the western hemisphere. Time zones are not universal. It's noon here, Eastern Standard Time, and December 15th is 24 hours long, just like every day of the year.

I'm angry that Ubisoft released an unfinished product like everyone else. But if you're seriously staring at your computer right now waiting anxiously for Patch 4 to be released, I strongly suggest you go outside, take a walk, go get a cup of coffee, or do anything remotely social in the outside world so you might remember that video games shouldn't consume your life so much.

Actually the performance is playable (not best) for me (GTX760). I think people are just trying to mask the fact the game is short and not fun. I myself PRE ORDERED so don't say I'm gamer poop. They need to make BF2 or something...Paris is small and the missions are none to almost no replayable. It's an okay campaign,5H tops CO OP and that's it.

12-15-2014, 06:15 PM
I've put in over 150 hours into Unity despite framerate and stuttering issues.

Whether you like the game or not is subjective, but I've really enjoyed it even with the persistent technical problems.

Patch 4 on Hold

Rigorous quality control is of paramount importance to us, and your feedback over these past weeks has indicated that it is important to you as well.

As stated last week, we’d expected to release the patch today (and we know that many are anticipating its release), but we are choosing to hold off until we can give you the improvements we’ve promised. We are committed to delivering major performance improvements, which requires that we refurbish the Paris map and that will take a few more days to hit the high level of quality our players deserve.

Thank you very much for your understanding and continued patience.

guess we'll have to wait even longer for club competition as well as the fixes, my game began stuttering like hell with no apparent reason, now i was hoping for the patch but not today says the LUT... charming -_-

... YOU CAN'T EVEN RELEASE A PATCH ON TIME???? You guys delay the game and it's full of bugs, promise a patch, delay the patch... let's hope the patch delivers what it's promised otherwise this is the most ridiculous gaming company in history... Ubisoft... delaying everything since AC II

When it didn't arrive in the last few hours I knew it was to be postponed, going to be some very angry folk, but I just hope its done before xmas when people have some time off to really enjoy what is undoubtedly an atmospheric and detailed game, not sure about gameplay as its too laggy for me to do missions.

How did the game ship in it's current state if the above is true ?

I can not even load my save game it crashes to the desktop contacting support doesn't help with the matter.

^^I like the reference to the Nvidia's program. :D

If they are really going to bring a significant performance increase, okay. Deadlines get missed, it happens. It wouldn't have been for the worse if they had admitted that they'd missed the release date, instead of pretending that the game was ready, because that charade could only hold until the first people installed the game. Hopefully, the "map refurbishing" won't negatively affect other aspects of the game.

I think the most galling is as you say this is a major established company, they seemed to put as much effort into the merchandising and pay to play mechanisms(because that is what they are) and the pointless multi-media apps, the marketers seem to have had the main influence with this one.

Well, that's really disappointing.

I guess congratulations are in order, though, right? At least this time Ubisoft was willing to recognize that the patch was not ready for release, so they chose not to release an unfinished product.

It's too bad they couldn't have made the same realization BEFORE THEY RELEASED A BROKEN GAME IN THE FIRST PLACE.

oh but there is, you should go rewatch the first e3 release demo,

in logical terms i think its them adding more LOD to the building and maybe cutting off some poly (they have too much for no reason, some objects can have less poly and look the same

Jesus Ubi... You really need to change a lot of things in order to achive that some players trust you again. I guess you know if this patch fails then it willl be your death for a lot of your followers.

If this patch is what we all expect then you can focus on your other AAA title: Far Cry 4 (I mean the PC version) which is also an unfinished product.

you know my views mate, but i complained that they delayed ACU and still was unfinished
now they delay the patch... will it be finished?

delay is what ubisoft does best, but despite all the delays they still **** up in the end of the day, if you read the original post for the delay you will see some funny phrases that have already been quoted here, it's a joke...

Just refund everyone their money already. You waste your customer's time and energy, you waste their money, hell you're wasting your own time and money Ubi if you continue to release crap and fail to deliver anything. I was completely fine with a delay on the game because I was tired of dealing with broken games being released. I was hoping you would have been faithful and stay true to your customers but I guess not. You're just like every other gaming company these days. Refund everyone and shut your doors. You have many stuck doing nothing because they can't complete your game because you screwed up. Just admit it and do something morally right for a change this year.

Maybe, maybe not. Could be polygon count. Could also be rebuilding parts of the map. In my experience, the light from outside the map will bleed through into the map (the underground of the café does this to me, as well as leaves and the sort appearing indoors).

Inside of François de la Serre's house in Versailles bleeds through, as well as texture artifacting, particularly with the cutscene at the beginning of Sequence 1 Memory 3. When Arno slips the letter under the door, the graphics do some strange artifacting, the scene slows to 15 or so fps and Arno's hair whips around like crazy.

I do think that the maps were made pretty half-****. Ubi could just be correcting that.

4-5fps would be huge for people that currently have 15 or 20. ;) If they delivered that and removed stuttering which occurs to me randomly plus a bug fix here and there, I would call the state of the game acceptable.

May I inquiry You about Ubisoft's policy on support? As it happens I opened a ticket over a week ago at your "support" website, yet I got NO response at all. I gave a very specific issue affecting a very specific subtype of platform (laptops w/ switchable graphics card AND the newest AMD Omega drivers) and I expected to get some sort of answer at least in a week. An answe of "Yes, we are aware of it and working on it." or "No, sorry; we cannot resolve the issues caused by manufacturer drivers."....well even an answer of "Thanks for reporting the issue" would be a nice thing at this point.

Hi,

Support maybe very busy at the moment, however they will answer when they get to your ticket.

Laptops versions of graphics cards while they may work - are not supported by the game, as per the system requirements - so you may have some issues specific to those cards, which may result in errors etc.

If you try different drivers, they can sometimes resolve those issues, however it's not something support can generally help with other than basic troubleshooting.

Ecocrash, the card is not officially supported, however, as you know, it's DX11 and powerful, so it will run (I'm running with a single 6950). Your only problem may be crossfire support as I'm not sure if AMD has made a Crossfire profile for your card and this game. Still, AFAIK, you can make your own Crossfire profile in CCC.

Apart from how well it runs with other games, my previous card was an HD6990, and I _think_ you effectively have 2GB per GPU. I'm trying to say; 2GB max that can be used by any game. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

If a game has a crossfire profile, then with the above it should be the full four GB of VR that operates, sadly even with such profiles its frequently half that.

Although I wanted to aim my question on the way and timeframe support answers to tickets instead of the answer itself I do appreciate it.
So the game worked on 14.11.2 the moment before updating to 14.12, guess I'll have to wait for AMD to maybe fix it.
