    Wow, that sucks. What happened?

    That's what I always back up my data periodically even though it can be a pain at times.

    I don't like how they hide the game saves in uPlay but I found mine and will keep a backup of it periodically as this seems to be a common issue.

    Ubisoft mucking up the cloud save feature. I lost a 94% completion because of that crap and had to start over from scratch. FYI, if you value your save games, disable the cloud saving feature and keep your saves local.

    Their cloud saves have been unreliable since the days of AC2 ...

    I wasn't talking about the game saves. He said he lost his whole install.

    I was thinking it was about time to locate the game save I remember.
    anyways it happened cause I had uplay installed on my OS 'c' drive and my games drive 'e' also.
    I downloaded splinter cell blacklist, uplay updated then I dunno ..in the end I had nothing and had to re-download blacklist.
    so now i'm re-downloading this and I've since erased blacklist, the character movement is too restrictive for me.
    looking forwards to returning to the waves though. I uninstalled all traces of uplay and have since installed it on my OS drive and i'm gonna download my uplay games there from now on.

    Finally got around to playing the game for an extended period. I was on an island and it turned stormy. With the new lighting system, the rain, storm clouds, lightening and the foliage getting whipped about -- I think I died and went to graphics heaven.

    Just got a chance to try the game out on my sig rig and its holding 60FPS on this rig. Seems the extra help from my i7 was needed. still maxing core0 out though. The extra 300Mhz and 2MB of l3 must be the difference.

    I have died 9 times now on the northeast corner legendary ships..... ughhh..... The most I've done is sink 1 ship and then get rammed by the other ship no matter how far I keep running from it.

    keep trying. It took me about 20 or so tries before I managed to take them out.

    I didn't see anything different when I checked one of the areas (Blue Hole or what it was named.) but maybe it's some subtler effect?

    in the options we now have off /low /normal /high for the PhysX effects, I remember just three presets before.

    After the patch I set it to High and got into some ship battles and it didn't stutter like before. So perhaps a performance fix as well? I'm using the last betas and previous physx drivers.

    Edit: I was wrong. On the sea, High Physx is fine but in towns I get slowdowns on Normal or High Physx when smoke appears.

    I've noticed a performance increase with PhysX myself. Before, in towns I had major stuttering, but now, I don't have any performance decrease.

    I use a dedicated PhysX card though, a GTX 650 Ti..

    once you get into the game a little it seems to smooth itself out a bit.
    try keep on with it, cause it's feaking amazing game :D
    earlier today I had a nice lady hold one of the enemies while I stabbed him. :p
