    I want to catch up with the whole AC saga, so I just bought AC1 from ubisoft. Problem is that after creating a new profile and pressing on new game, it hangs in the loading screen forever.

    I tried all of the following:

    • DirectX10
    • DirectX9
    • Compatilibity mode for windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 (only starts if disconnected from the internet, otherwise it crashes at the ubisoft logo)
    • Run as admin
    • Move the game to C:\AC1


    I googled all day and tried all the suggestions. Nothing works so far. Any clue?

    OS: Windows 10 Pro 20H2
    CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6920HQ CPU @ 2.90GHz  2.90 GHz
    RAM: 16 Gb
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060 3Gb

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    Hey there!

    I've redownloaded AC1 as we have similar setups and it runs after installing, without needing to change any settings.

    This tells me it could be background application affecting the game when you try to launch, so please disable those before trying again. Interestingly, the game did hang before the first loading screen, however when I moved my mouse, it continued.

    If you have a controller plugged in, try disconnecting this and using KBM as well.
