This problem is actually going to kill me I swear. It took me until a good ways into chapter 2 before I even realized. THIS ISSUE ONLY AFFECTS CONTROLLERS ON THE PC VERSION, POSSIBLY WHEN PLAYING THE GAME REMOTELY BUT I DOUBT IT.
The Bug: When Eivor is standing on a surface that he cannot stand upright on, as in, a ledge that can only be crouched upon, He cannot Climb. At all. It's actually more accurate to say he cannot parkour at all because it affects sidestepping around the mast pole when running across the sail from end to end.
This is made extremely obvious when attempting the climb for the viewpoint in Ledecester.
To stress -- This is only affecting ledges you cannot stand on. No other parkour mechanic is affected whatsoever. It is not an input issue either, as when facing a spot you should regularly be able to climb but cannot, turning around and tapping the A button often sends you immediately hurtling towards your death. In fact, Sometimes surfaces that can't be climbed off of can be IF they are low enough to the ground so much so that they can be stepped onto for half a second before crouching and in that moment you can parkour. Once you grab something you're golden until the next unstandable surface
The Setup: My computer can handle the game fine. I've been playing the game remotely using either the steam link app to an Nvidia shield, and also using Geforce experience to stream to moonlight on the same Nvidia shield. I've experienced no other glitches or bugs that i'm aware of. I have the latest game ready driver and latest windows updates and I have rebooted my machine multiple times in the process. I also have no other controllers attached to my machine.
I have no idea what the difference between ACvalhalla.exe and ACValhallaexe_plus.exe or whatever it is, but I've tried them both.
I am dying please help me I am fully aware that I could just finish climbing to the viewpoint in Ledecester on my KBM and keep playing and ignoring the bug with an ignorant-like bliss like I apparently have for the past few days but i'll always know that it's there and i need it to not be or it will tear me down to my atoms please help me.
i dont think i forgot to include anything important unless you want me to post specs but if i did i'll fix it and i'm also sorry.
