Have had two crashes while playing DLC
Both were freezes - one i was able to alt-tab and restart my system as i couldnt kill the ACV window and the second one was CTD with the Ubisoft error report window popping up.
Its very random - can play for 2-3 hrs with no problems then play for 10 minutes and it crashes.
I've had 4 crashes/freezes in about +/- 75 hrs of gameplay.
Seems like a random event but considering its all happened in the space of around a week its slightly annoying.
First 2 were CTD's with no errors. Nothing in the event log as the Ubisoft error reporting thing came up after the crash.
Last 2 were freezes with audio in background - event log indicated D3DDRED2 and AppHangB1. In both instances i was able to alt-tab to windows and kill the process.
I just wanted to give my experience of the crashes/freezes that i have logged since the start of playing the game since release date.
Overall in just under 240hrs of gameplay i've counted 15 crashes/freezes. Not enough that its a constant worry but its still too much to call it "stable"
All nvidia drivers are up to date. i resisted the temptation to roll back as it wasn't a constant issue that warranted a roll-back.
I could go days without any issues then all of a sudden one would pop up. I will say that i never had more than 2 on any given day so in that regard i was lucky.
5 of them were CTD, some of them were CTD's without any error messages and a few actually had me doing the whole sending of error reports to Ubisoft.
The rest were the freezing with the sound still playing in the background issue (this is the main one that i see popping up regularly in the forums)
I wanted to focus on this issue as its happened the most and there's no clear indicator what actually triggers it.
Looking at the event ID's each time the one that popped up the most was D3DDRED2.
Some of the things that i was doing when the game froze:
- in combat
- general exploring
- in distrust areas (happened in Ledecestre, Cent, Wincestre and smaller area called Wandrie)
- on horseback
- leap of faithing
So in general - anything! I will say the freezes in the distrust area were a bit odd but ill put that down to mere co-incidence.
Crashes usually happened within the first hour of gameplay but there was the odd occasion when it froze after 4+ hours though.
This is still a big issue that i see pop up and to my knowledge this isn't even on the "known issues" list
Looking at the list i'm a little shocked as to what they deem "priority" when there are many people who cant even play 5 minutes.
I'm probably gonna take a break from the game for a bit. Think the only thing i need to finish is the fishing collection and complete a few mysteries (a few are bugged so don't know when they will get patched)
Hopefully Ubisoft can actually start tackling the real problem for players and get the mess sorted.
So i've been monitoring my freezes/crashes and have counted 11 of them so far over 200hrs of gameplay. Not a catastrophic number by any means but enough to be annoying nonetheless.
All crashes so far have been soft crashes so i was able to get back to windows and kill the process.
I can play for hours with the problem never surfacing and then it will crash at a random time. I found that if it crashes it usually happens within the first hour of gameplay but there have been exceptions.
They were either CTD or freezes with sound in the background like many of you have mentioned.
Strangely ive had alot of the freeze/crashes in distrust areas (happened in Cent, Wincestre, Ledecestre and smaller area called Wandrie)
Anyone else had that issue? It seems like a very odd co-incidence and i highly doubt it would crash in those sort of areas but stranger things have happened it guess.
yeah the freezing with sound still in the background. You're not the only one so don't worry.
I see you had freezing issues in Cent, curiously i had 2 freezes in Cent while leap of faithing!
Very random and alot of my freezes see to happen in Distrust areas but i think that's just an odd occurence.

Due to space constraints i can't install all Ubisoft games to the main drive as my main drive is a 250GB SSD - i only have Valhalla installed there and i still get the splash screen issues on there now and then.
I have another 1TB HDD which i use for a few other games but it doesnt matter which drive they are on same issue will appear.
I'm gonna try and re-install Ubisoft Connect app as everything else is up to date (graphics, OS and file verification comes back with no errors)
I sometimes get issues with Valhalla (Odyssey as well) where on occasion it gets stuck on the splash screen.
This only happens now and then but it is irritating nonetheless.
Additionally when i restart my pc after that splash screen issue i get stuck on the system restart and end up having to hard reset.
I did read somewhere that Ubisoft games don't like it when installed on other drives and that it needs to be on C drive and some issue with sound files or the other but i wanted to know if anyone else has similar issue?
Like i said it doesn't happen every time so i'm not sure what to put it down - could be the Ubisoft Connect app but can't be sure.
