    Hello Ubisoft. Remember me? I'm the guy that gave you my money. I bought the Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia packs. I got engrossed in the AC storyline. True, I was coming to the games late, so I never paid the full release price for anything, but I still added quite a few coins to your pockets.

    Then I started having trouble in the middle of ACII. It was a game-breaking resolution problem. I couldn't even get to your logo. Every time I booted it up, I'd have to ctrl-alt-delete and hit log off, then quickly hit the cancel button. I couldn't even alt-tab out of it. That's how unplayable this thing was. So, like any good PC user, I contacted Ubisoft Tech Support.

    Just admit it, OK? There is no tech support. It doesn't exist. All you have is a crappy automated message about drivers, even though I SPECIFICALLY SAID THE DRIVERS WERE NOT THE PROBLEM.

    So, no tech support from the company. Great. Maybe all the help is on the forums. I ask a few questions, and what do I get? "BUY A BETTER SYSTEM N00B". Again, despite the fact that I CLEARLY STATED the game was running fine before I changed monitors.

    Finally, I find a solution for the problem at considerable waste of time and brainpower. Yay. Of course, it's an awful solution. Worst resolution ever. Black bars at the top and bottom of the screen, and a slice of the game is cut off on the side. But hey, at least it's running. I finish the game. Decide I might as well buy Brotherhood. Sure, there might be problems, but I know how to fix them now, right?

    Ubisoft, you really outdid yourself. It takes a special kind of stupid to actually make a problem with a game UNFIXABLE in the sequel. As it stands, I have not seen one bit of Brotherhood. I might as well have flushed my money down the toilet.

    Now, I understand it's hard to port console games to the PC. I've come to expect bugs upon a game's release. But this game has been out for some time now. There is no excuse for this. I can deal with a poorly thought-out map navigation system, that again, took a step backward from one game to the next. But this is ridiculous.

    I've had enough. I'm not lifting a finger to solve a problem that never should've occurred in the first place were it not for sheer laziness on Ubisoft's part. I did more than my share, now it's time to get a REAL tech support system in place and earn yourselves some customer loyalty. (I can just see Ubisoft executives scratching their heads at that last phrase.)

    I've never had a problem with the PC version other than the incredibly stupid lack of support for Z-Axis triggers on some forms of Xbox 360 controllers, that, and the extra wait to play the game.

    Exactly. The fault is not on Ubi's side if your PC sucks. See, nobody else has the problem. And you still believe it's the game? Seriously, man...? It's SO obvious! The game worked fine until you started to use another monitor. What do you expect? The game auto-updated itself and added a bug? Uhm...

    Actually it is ubisoft's fault can't you see? If the game worked before he switched monitors then that means the game is not compatible with that specific monitor your probably a console gamer and don't have a clue...
    To OP yes ubisoft doesn't care if you haven't noticed, all I can really say is play a different game if that solves the problem.

    Same old story. XBOX morons don't want to accept that there could be a platform or two that is in every way superior to their crap, so whenever a PC user has a problem: BLAME IT ON THE HARDWARE!!! Never mind the fact that said hardware runs more recent and graphically advanced games. Just close your ears and shout LALALA until the big bad man who won't worship the Almighty Game Companies goes away.

    Holy asses.

    Anyway, it's weird that it doesn't work on your monitor. What size and ratio does it do?

    I know there are annoying black bars if you're not on widescreen.

    But adjusting your resolutions around should always fix it. Maybe you need to hit the fullscreen button.

    I just can't see how it's the monitors or the games fault. In todays day and age any new monitor you get is probably 16:9. Are you setting the resolution of the game to the same one you're monitor is running?

    I'm kinda sorry, lol. There're some days where really everything ****es me off. I guess I should stop posting as soon as I realise it's such a day... ah, played too much ACB multiplayer.
