Before I say anything, I just want to say f**k off ubisoft
I played Assassin's creed: Odysseey for about 44 hours when it came out so I know that it is not a problem with my computer
I went to play Assassin's creed: odyssey again so I can buy valhalla and try it out but assassin's creed: odyssey didn't work and I tried every possible thing that I found on the internet to resolve this. I am a computer science major so I am well-versed in computers btw.
I thought that Assassin's Creed: Odyssey might be an older game so I bought ACV to see if ubisoft had gotten their [censored] back together but apparently I guess not.
I don't want to sound a whining kid without telling you what I did so people can have a reference point.
uninstall and reinstall ACV (obviously as a first step) verified game files before running to make sure that install was correctmoved ACV to my C : drive which is a SSD with my OS (it was on my HDD (D: drive) before)uninstalled ACV and ubisoftinstalled both ACV and ubisoft connect on my C : driveverified game files againupdated my graphics card driver to v. 457 (latest one)verified that firewall was not blocking the programwent to my boot options and lowered the overlock to normalwent into the ACV application properties and clicked "always run as administrator"set the pagefile on both my C and D drives to be "system managed"went into NVIDIA control panel and set it to "use the advanced 3D image settings" under "adjust image setting with preview" tabturned image sharpening offtuned texture filtering - quality to performancepower management mode - maximum performancethreaded optimization - onmoved the icon from the folder to desktopi started getting about 4 errors that some .dll files were missing (which I could see right there in the folder under the application)I deleted those .dll files.verified game files again so that the files would be re-downloadedwhen I click the application from desktop again it continues to give the same errors stating that .dll files were missing. the missing filesuplay_r2_loader64.dll, tobii_gameintegration_x64.dll, GFSDK_Aftermath_Lib.x64.dll, amd_ags_x64.dllafter verifying game files, they are in the folder againreinstalled ACV again and verified files

Get the hell off my desktop and refund my money
