    Allright, so I've played the prologue and here are my conclusions.

    ¤ For me the NVIDIA setting makes the game barely playable (50-60fps) and introduces stuttering about anywhere.
    ¤ Fur is broken http://i.imgur.com/c1Wd3JR.jpg
    ¤ Soft Shadows seem somewhat broken. I was wandering the woods while suddenly everything went white as if the sun has magically moved a couple of hours. Then after a few seconds it reverted back.
    ¤ All forms of AA are bad, MSAA because it makes all foilage and trees look grainy and blurs a lot. TXAA because it blurs the whole scene and looks terrible. Actually I found that playing without AA was the best. I'm lucky enough to have a 1440p monitor but with a 1080p that would be painful to watch.
    ¤ SMAA as we all know is broken and introduces some "burn-in" effect
    ¤ HBAO+ is a killer FPS wise
    ¤ Stutter when you move to different "areas", less when AA is disabled
    ¤ Bugs with NPCs, seen them jump high up in the air or bounce here and there

    But the most annoying thing is that this game totally roasts my cards! First time ever that I see 80/70 degrees on my cards. I tried to find what setting makes the card run so hot but couldn't find it (usually it's something like SSAA but that doesn't exist). Now I can't OC them since they will only throttle down and this game sure needs some OC. The GPU usage is always near 99% which concerns me.

    Anybody got some good config tweaks? I was working on some but am getting mixed results. im really wanting to tweak hand fov. the lighting option seems to desaturate the image. i really wanna disable the fov and force better water reflections.

    Ubisoft games have always a sh1tty AA selection, this and Unity are no exception. I think that DS is the best option here, otherwise in AC is too heavy for a human PC.

    I guess there's no way to increase the resolution of shadows just like Far Cry 3? All settings look terrible, like the shadow resolution is 512 when it could be 4096 or 8192.

    Playing the game on low settings with a GTX 780. I can usually play Ubisoft games on medium, but the stuttering is too bad this time. On low, this game actually looks worse than Far Cry 3.

    DS?

    By the way, driving is...phew...not fun with the stuttering. I'll check the .xml now to see if there is anything to be done.

    I got used to the mouse bug though :)

    After finally getting back on Uplay the game has now started launching itself in a window with a stopped responding error so I can't even get the game to load.

    Why do I still buy Ubisoft games. Just why.

    DS = DownSampling

    Anyway there are 2 ways for mitigate the stuttering. Change value DisableLoadingMip0="1" in DisableLoadingMip0="1" under GamerProfile.xml or/and unpark cpu cores for a better load distribution. I've a big improvement with this.

    No matter what FOV you have the guns just look humungous and a bit odd.

    I have reached halfway in missions 16/32 but my overall feeling is its a super game excellent graphics huge open plan explore map enjoyable flying and shangri la missions super awesome.

    However, there is stuttering less with borderless mode but still visible. As said previously the cache on open map tries to fill your ram but drive faster from waypoint to waypoint and you'll see that your system will stall. Drive slowly and you'll get less visible stutter.

    The driving scenes engine feels like watchdogs.
    Also had major graphic glitch with textures showing like cliff lines when approaching a tower. Could be new drivers from amd but will test again.

    I find it funny that with so much $$$ put into this not one person at ubisoft QC didn't say guys we have issue with stutter. But then again watchdogs, acu and now fc4 and we see inherent faults deep within ubisoft.

    Got both this and Unity with my 2 cards, but I sure as hell won't be playing either games for at least the next 2 months. Ubisoft games are always like this at launch, but are solid gameplay/story wise. Until then, it's DA:I for me, that one runs great (so far) and looks even greater.
