    I'm bumping this because I'm not seeing these bugs in the "Known Issues" thread. Please do something about them,they're annoying bugs that were NOT present in Odyssey and Origins. How do you break something that is basically copy pasted from the previous games ? These features should not be broken like this.

    Whoa. You are right. If you spam controller-to-mouse/keyboard over and over again really quickly, sound will cut out for a long time where you aren't sure if it's coming back. It also almost locks the game up.

    @xrayspex_73 funny isn't it.

    Atleast it is consistent
    Should be not too difficult to diagnose

    Lucky it isn't all that inconvenient.

    Hello there,

    Inputmode "Hybrid" will cause stutter/freeze everytime you switch between Gamepad and K&M.

    This could lend to a "Permafreeze", when you're playing with a Controller while having a very sensitiv Mousesensor
    by touching your Desk or any other source of "micro"vibrating on your Desk (from a extern HDD etc)

    vise versa while playing with K&M and your Gamepads sticks are vibrating out of the deadzone, drifting
    or having a "cheap" Gamepad like i had because it was sending constantly a z-axis command to the game.

    @thezonk88 I'm having the same issue, even the audio gets muted until the game stops freezing. Is the game also freezing for you when you enter/leave photo mode ? Because it's doing it for me, even with Hybrid mode disabled.

    i would say this is intended behavior 😉

    i wouldnt want to see moving NPCs and such, while i try to get a nice shot

    @thezonk88 No lol I understand photo mode pauses the game to take pics. But when I use my controller to open photo mode the game freezes and mutes itself completely for a few seconds, like I can't do anything. It doesn't happen when I use my keyboard tho, only when I open it with my controller. Even after closing photo mode the audio will be muted for a few seconds. That should not happen, it never did in previous games.

    @nozgame ohhh - i am not able to test and confirm/deny this.

    i am using a Xbox One Controller (the newer one) which doesn't have a "screenshot/social/share" Button (as far as i know!), also i cannot find a button assigned to photomode.

    @thezonk88 You need to press both right and left sticks at the same time to open photo mode. Make sure photo mode is enabled in the options, should be in "Gameplay", all the way at the top.

    WOW 🙂

    Nope, no freezes on my End on entering Photomode with my Controller. Tested while sailing with a Song and Saga.
    Songs will play till End, while in Photomode and Saga are getting paused.

    I noticed whenever I switch back and forth while playing my audio cuts out and doesn't come back in until after 5-7 secs. So for instance if I boot up the game and connect my controller the audio will go out and whenever I hit my hotkeys to record a quick clip the audio will go out and when switching back to controller the audio will then cut out again.

    @nozgame I get this one as well. It feels just like the input switching freeze/audio glitch from when I still had hybrid on.

    @ubi-spud Alright it's the controller vibrations that cause the issues. Disabling them completely fixed it. Both vibration options (light and normal) are broken and need to be looked at. This fixes the issue for both Hybrid mode and Photo mode. Could you maybe pass this on to the team ?

    @nozgame Thanks for finding this fix. It happens for me as well on PC. It has nothing to do with photo mode, the game freezes every time you switch to a different control method, either moving your Xbox controller or pressing a key on the keyboard or mouse. This issue and workaround should be stickied on the list of known issues @Ubi-Spud

    "The audio constantly cuts in and out. I have a very clean and up-to-date Win10 installation with an NVIDIA RTX 2080 Super, along with a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 sound device. Audio cuts in and out randomly for 1-2 seconds at a time whenever I interact with the UI. Personally, it is most easily reproduced during the tattoo and hair customization screen. "

    So on my PC these stutters are constant, from the second i launch the game, in menus, in dialogue, cut-scenes and regular game play. Every 1-10 seconds the audio will stutter off and on again. Makes the game completely unbearable to play... I've had none of the other audio issues that plague people like echoes etc.

    I've made sure all audio drivers are up to date, windows is up to date, gfx is up to date, also tried rolling back gfx drivers with clean install. i've tried different headsets, different gfx options in-game, i've tried unplugging controller, unplugging bluetooth headset, i've tried with HDR on and off, i've tried vsync on and off, i've tried capping FPS and now i'm trying a re-install.

    The weird thing is, i got 30 hours into the game before this stuttering became an issue...

    Are you playing with controller? Try disabling Hybrid Input mode. It causes the sound to cut out when you switch between controller and mouse/keyboard input. It also causes the game to stutter. Try setting the control scheme to controller only or mouse/keyboard only.

    @nozgame omg, it works! Thanks! Hybrid controll is much more important to me than rumble.
