    I have walking speed set to 10 in the options menu and the speed is perfect IMO, however whenever I pull the hood up the walking speed drops to what I assume is the lowest speed setting. I have a gamepad (but prefer to play AC games exclusively on M/KB) and have tested with both. Hooded walk speed with the gamepad is noticeably faster than M/KB.

    I don't know if this is intentional (I assume it isn't) but it kills social stealth and roleplay for me.

    2 ways this could be fixed:

    Easy way - allow the "walking speed" setting in the Options menu to affect both hooded and non-hooded walk speeds.

    Harder (but way better) way - currently when you have sneak (c) toggled you can choose from 3 different speeds: walk, run and sprint. It would be awesome to have the same apply to walking, for example: CTRL to toggle walking mode, SHIFT to switch between the user defined walk speed and the default (1) walk speed. Have this apply to both hooded and non-hooded movement in the exact same way for consistency.

    I know there are more pressing things to work on but if you guys could do something about this I know there are a lot of players out there for whom these changes would have a massive impact from both a gameplay and immersion/roleplaying standpoint.

    @Ubi-Baron @Ubi-Swaggins @Ubi-Spud terribly sorry for directly pinging you guys, but i know that you're very active and @Ubi-Ginge has not been online since the 13th, i fear that since this has a "official response" no one will check it otherwise

    When using a KB&M Eivor walks painfully slowly while you have your hood up, and the speed is unaffected by the "walking speed" setting. this makes traversing distrusted zones really difficult because you literally can't walk away fast enough to avoid detection, but if you run you get instantly detected. this only occurs when using a KB&M as far as i can tell as i've had others say this isn't the case when using a controller, and it fixes even if you plug one into a PC. i do not have a controller to test this, or use that "fix" but it should be super easy to replicate this bug, and hopefully fix it. i'd really appreciate if this was passed onto the dev team as it's really impacting my actual gameplay negatively, i'm almost certain this is happening for everyone but i think people assume it is intended behaviour and are not reporting it, everyone i've actually seen talk about it say the same thing.

    this is in my opinion a very detrimental bug to gameplay as it makes any distrust area atrocious to play/move around in, and i think that not many people are reporting it because they think it's intended behaviour. but it is not - someone actually commented on my video (must of found it via just google searching as i do not have actual subscribers) saying that it only happens when you have a keyboard & mouse input, he tested changing to controller and it worked at the correct speed, really hope that you can pass this on because it's super frustrating and should be really easy to replicate and hopefully fix

    here is the video



    thanks

    +1 to this. I expected the walking to be faster, especially when I have to constantly toggle between walk and run when I'm with the wandering group of monks for the blend option.

    Hello all,

    Thank you for your continued reports and feedback regarding the walking speed of Eivor when in disguise on PC. From the videos provided I realise this may be troublesome for managing stealth effectively, so I'll be passing these onto the devs for their review. If I hear anything back, I will let you know.

    @chaosandcoffee Just as a quick heads-up, I deleted your duplicate thread on this topic after finding your posts here. I have however copied across any useful information into a previous message. It does not help us when you create duplicate threads as this creates additional sources for us to check when trying to understand a particular issue. A thread is not ignored if it has an official response - it is checked as soon as possible for updates as with all the rest. If you can find an existing thread for your issue, please post in this and wait for a reply in the future. Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    thank you for your response. i did not mean that threads with a response wouldn't be looked at, but i was worried that it wouldn't be looked at by staff other than the original support who commented, who hadn't been online for around a week at the time - nothing against them, just afraid it would fly under the radar, my bad

    i will not make any duplicate threads in future - i just really didn't want this to go unnoticed as it's probably the biggest actual gameplay affecting bug plaguing me, as it occurs at all times instead of just for one quest etc. i do apologise and will wait patiently now that it's been acknowledged

    @chaosandcoffee All Support Staff working on the forums will check as many threads as they can - we don't have ownership of particular threads, so to speak, so there's no need for concern if you notice a particular agent has not been online for a few days ๐Ÿ™‚

    I appreciate your apology but honestly, don't worry about it! It's just a heads-up as we're trying to get as many "megathreads" going as possible to keep reports of particular issues together and centralise information. ๐Ÿ™‚ I'll be adding this topic to the list in case any other players on PC would like to share their experiences too.

    @sirius348 seems fine on a controller. I think there's a speed setting for kb&m

    Hello. Can I get an update on this? Launched the game after the title update hoping to be able to play the game again finally, but none of the bugs I have reported have been fixed, including this one.

    This is not the one stopping me from playing (that would be the dead zealot who I can't interact with thus locking me out of the entire Order questline) but as it was marked as "being looked into" and has not received a fix I wanted to ask.

    This is still an issue for everybody and why is it still not fixed? This breaks a good portion of the gameplay, and ruins the entire social stealth mechanic for Keyboard and Mouse users. I cant believe this wasn't pushed in the 1.04 patch

    Hey there guys! Thanks for your patience!

    Please note that we aren't always able to address every reported issue within a title update, as some issues are still being investigated further. Please rest assured that we haven't forgotten about this.

    The development team has reached out to us with an update. They have found that you should only be able to walk that slowly when using the CTRL key. This is a known issue, and is currently under investigation.ย The speed is limited in disguise mode when using the CTRL key even though the walking speed is 10. The disguise speed should match the one when you are using CTRL without the disguise.

    If you are encountering this, we'd like to collect some more information from you:

    • Are you using anything other than WASD to move Eivor with?
    • If possible, would you be able to test using an alternative keyboard/controller, so we can ensure that this is not an issue with the peripherals? Could you then let us know if the issue persists with the alternative?


    We'll update you all again once we have more information. Thanks!

    @ubi-borealis
    Hi, I appreciate that not everything will be fixed, it's just frustrating when none of the bugs affecting me have been fixed, and even bugs/changes that the title update was supposedly going to fix haven't been. For instance the world event bug I have reported - I know they must of done something, (as the NPC spawns in the correct location now) but she still just takes the item and the quest doesn't complete. I just hope they don't think it's fixed.

    Onto this bug, I know it's only when using the CTRL (walking hotkey) key, but you need to be able to walk when using disguise in distrusted zones otherwise you will be detected. Hence why this is an issue.

    Information / what I have tried:

    • Using WASD
    • Changed hotkey to different key other than CTRL
    • Used different keyboard


    Issue persists through all of this.

    On a further note, while I have not used a controller, (as I do not own one to try) as far as I am aware, other users have reported that the issue does not occur when using a controller, even when on a PC, and that it's specifically affecting KB&M. I can't confirm that as I have said but I've read others say as such.

    @chaosandcoffee Thanks for a prompt response! Please rest assured that our team are still looking into other issues reported, and are working as quickly as they can to provide us with an update. I'm sorry to hear that you're still encountering issues. It may take us some time, but the support team within the forums are trying their best to pass on all your reports to the development teams. We thank you for your continued patience, and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

    Thanks for answering those questions for me. Could you please expand on your answers a little?

    • Which other keys have you used to move Eivor with?
    • Which other hotkeys have you used, other than CTRL, for walking?
    • Could you let me know the make/model of your keyboards? It would be interesting to see if there is a pattern here, and whether it is a certain keyboard that is affected by this.


    Thanks!
