As title, all but one of my river-raid Jomsvikings have just disappeared from my crew without any obvious reason (patch 1.3.1). Not played river-raid mode for a while, but since I've finished almost everything else except for unfinishables due to bugs, I thought it ws time for another river raid. Then I find my crew missing. Yet another bug in a game rapidly becoming a waste of money.
And another...none of the Reda quests have resulted in any progress on the challenge, so it remains at zero. One curious additional symptom was that on completing a quest it removed another from my possible quest list. I completed one worth 20 opals, and it removed the only remaining Reda 5-opal quest from my list. I had to go back to Reda to request the contract again, which luckily was still available.
This 1.3.1 patch seems to have introduced an unprecedented number of bugs into the game, making it barely worth playing until they're resolved. Literally every time I play the game now I encounter some new issue which used not to exist.
@ubi-borealis I'm now running patch 1.3.1 and I've encountered the unable to follow Njal bug. It originally occurred on an older patch version (can't remember which), but has persisted every time I've revisited the area to try again. Note that I've already been through the game previously in another saved game & managed to get through the event, but this time I cannot.
Submitted under case#15388915. I've included a video, but it's not very informative, just showing the inability to do anything.
@ubi-orion So I finally get OBS up and running ready to record it, then I reload the saved game and this time it allows me to finish the event by the upturned cart on the roof, which it definitely wasn't recognising as an "activation" point the last few times I tried. Problem solved, but maybe one to watch for. The obvious difference compared to previous attempts is that I must have saved while standing next to the dead boar, so when I reloaded it immediately gave me the key (which if I remember right is the outcome of the boar/talking transaction).
Same problem as this; get lots of blue/green blobs leading a trail nearby, but unable to interact with anything or progress with the mystery. It may or may not be relevant that I (probably rather too swiftly) saw a boar and dispatched it, which I seem to recall is something to do with the mystery! In any case, unable to progress/complete now. One for the bug list I think.
@ubi-borealis That was one of my first thoughts, that reducing graphics setting may help, but certainly reducing World Detail and/or Clutter didn't help at all. I've been running with these settings for a while now, mostly successfully until recently:
- Field of View: 100%
- FPS Limit: Off
- Window Mode: Borderless
- Aspect Ratio: 16:9 (Native)
- Resolution: 3840 x 2160 (Native)
- Refresh Rate: 120 Hz (Native)
- VSync: Off (although should be using FreeSync)
- Resolution Scale: 80%
- Graphics Quality: Custom
- Adaptive Quality: Off
- Anti-Aliasing: Medium
- World Details: Very High
- Clutter: Very High
- Shadows: High
- Volumteric Clouds: High
- Water: High
- Screen Space Reflections: On
- Environmental Textures: High
- Character Textures: High
- Depth of Field: Low
- Motion Blur: Off
FWIW, if you've seen the ticket details, I've managed to bypass the rainbow bridge battle at the start of Asgard, got the issue again around the Indre Holm area, but also managed to bypass that by walking and taking a long way around to find the southern tear (instead of a more direct/vikingr approach...galloping at high speed!). Since then I've finished Asgard, and also successfully got through Jotenheim, so I'm content to continue. Clearly there's still an issue, probably between the game and AMD 5700XT card, but I'm content to continue on my way.
- @ubi-thrupney Ok, I finally managed to submit a support ticket (#15341421) (only got it working by using Safari on macOS, ironically given I can't do it on the platform on which the game is played!). Anyhow, none of the suggestions yet has made any difference, and I've submitted the DxDiag/MsInfo files as requested.
@ubistorm The only error I get it that both the Ubisoft Connect & AMD software detect the crash and offer error reporting (which I've done). AMD software displays a vague "AMD software detected that a driver timeout has occurred on your system". I have the DxDiag, MsInfo, and AMD system report available as required, but of course I can't submit a support ticket because the website isn't working (requests relogin for some reason, then endlessly hangs while spinning on the "Please sign in to your Ubisoft account to contact support or open a support case" page; Firefox 92.0 64-bit for reference).
