OK I only have 20 Ubisoft Games loaded onto the computer, so I am not a Heavy Gamer!
But I got Assassins Creed Valhalla for my wife to play.. Loaded it in Via the Ubisoft Connect, into the Ubisoft Library on the computer , it Crashed loading the Windows c++ element of the install, (why it needed it is beyond me as it was already installed on the computer)
So uninstalled - re installed all seemed ok, started it and it stopped on the loading screen !!!
The computer is Fully updated with All the latest Drivers / Patches / Updates etc
Reinstalled it, again and still nothing.
I looked at the support, and the recommendation was to reinstall the Ubisoft Connect software, did that, Nothing! (20 games working OK, was doubtful of a fault, but you cannot moan unless you fallow the dumb stuff as well as the smart!!
A Couple of places said that you needed it on the C Drive to run, kind of makes Sense , if this was developed for the Xbox and the PlayStation , its only going to be a problem if you move it to your external!!!
Still Nothing though, so I once more uninstalled the Ubisoft Connect and re installed it on the C Drive , Low and Behold the game now actually worked!!!
But the defaults for Everything is now the C Drive!!!
I DO not put ANYTHING on the C Drive except my Personal Files and the Operating system Files. In this day and Age where Applications can and do move anywhere WHY DO I NEED TO PUT IT WHERE YOU WANT???
I did not Spend £6000 on a computer for you to dictate how to play your £60 game!!!
So as A Middle ground - you get / I get Idea
A little bit of "Jiggery Pokery"
Create A Folder on the C - drive ( Mines is call "Arrogant")
go into windows control panel, Administrative tool - Computer management - Storage / Disk Management
On one of your Big Drives (20TB RAID0 one for me) Create a Virtual Disc (dynamically EXPANDING is your best option) 4TB in size
when it asks for the Drive Letter, mount it as the c:\Arrogant Folder
install Ubisoft Connect c:\Arrogant
Install all of your games into C:\Arrogant\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\
It will All work!!!
Would It have been too Difficult for Ubisoft to add a notice /Caveat on the box or on the site "ONLY RUNS ON MAIN DRIVE - WILL NOT RUN FROM ANY OTHER DRIVE"
ok people like me would not have bought it!!! but at least you would know from DAY 1
