    Well just reached the winter wilderness and now a bit disappointed. It turns out that sli causes problems with rendering the snow tessellation, which causes a near seizure inducing level of flickering. It was also sad to see that ambient occlusion no longer occurs outside; leaving the world looking a little bland.

    Gamersgate unlocked the rest of the AC3 stuff, including Benedict Arnold which I thought was PS3 exclusive.

    I see people complaing about dips from 60 fps but does it look good at least? Like, you are in a very crowded area graphically, is it stunning?

    If so, I don't see why you should complain...

    Of course, if it looks like crap, now you can complain. :D

    Crowds aren't that big, buildings are more detailed this time though (No tessellation AFAIK.) and the view distance is increased, particularly with the higher settings.

    Main problem seems to be poor CPU utilization or so I've read, it mostly uses core0 with little to no activity on the others albeit there is some performance gain on multi-core CPU's so it must do something.

    Patch is out, 9MB apparently.

    Any idea of what the changes are?

    my fault, it's actually a 360 patch, someone posted on another forum. Disregard.

    I didn't even know there was a 1.01 patch though.

    Should already be installed if you have the game, Ubisoft runs the auto patch utility first which downloads and installs any updates it finds so everyone who has the game should have gotten that update unless they cancelled the download manually.
    (Usually by comparing a entry in the Windows registry about what version the game currently is on.)

    And supposedly the two console patches are already part of the PC version, this is just a small fix albeit it does resolve some other stuff which it doesn't list in the changelog.

    Assassin's Creed® III v1.01

    - Input related adjustments
    - Minor fixes related to Abstergo Store menu
    - Voice chat problem fixed
    - Fixed Keyboard layout related issues
    - Fixed Mouse navigation in Character Selection screen
    - Various small Uplay related fixes and improvements
    - Fixed situations when links in News and Additional Content menus do not work properly
    - News Feeds improvements
    - Improvements made to limited mode
    - Minor fixes in Single Player cinematic
    - Improved Notifications functionality

    I found it looked very good until gameplay in the winter. While there are some nice tessellation effects for the snow; ambient occlusion disappears for no reason. Also, currently sli causes problems with snow rendering effects. Crowds do look amazing (mainly the opening opera house scene), but after entering America performance is odd, to say the least.

    The areas with performance problems are also a bit strange. The most demanding area of the game I have come across is Beacon Hill, which is nothing but grass and the geometry of the hill. Also there seems to be the occasional problem with Z culling in the city that causes some performance issues.

    Thanks for posting this, much obliged!

    My only gripe now is having the "Skip" button always shown in cutscene, kills the immersion for me. Should be going away after a few seconds :/

    Snow is some displacement (parallax?) effect, it's also present in the console version so it's not tessellation as far as I know.

    I also noticed that while watching some PC video footage; pissed me off. Is there no way to turn it off? I remember previous games had an option to turn off the HUD completely.

    I suppose I'll know tomorrow when I'll be able to play the game. :bang:

    Hi guys how are you?

    So i`m with a big issue.

    I just entered in the ice part of the game and the ice is flickering a lot, a lot f artefacts too

    I turned off SLI and the flickering stopped

    Does anyone with the same issue, I`m wondering that it can be a VGA problem

    I`m using here SLI GTX 580 and the latest 310.61 beta driver

    And sorry for my poor English

    Thanks
