Hello Heroes,

For the past 24 hours the team have been working hard to identify solutions to the key issues preventing for instance some of you from launching the game or the editor. Please find underneath a new situation status. Do not forget to check previous one for more information: https://mmh7.ubi.com/en/blog/post/view/situation-status-29-09-10-30-pm-cest

Current game revision number is still: 31895

Since the release of the game, 3 fixes were deployed:
A first fix was launched on September 29th around 9PM CEST to increase Win10 compatibility
A second fix was deployed this morning to fix the map Editor
A third fix was released afterwards to fix crashes when launching the game on Laptops
Please do share your feedback and current status after those updates. We will continue to monitor your inputs and work on necessary fixes.

To help us identifying solutions please answer in the comments using the following template:
[Topic][Fixed/Unresolved] / OS / GPU (video card) / Additional information
Example: [Unable to Launch][Unresolved] / Win10 / Nvidia 770GTX / Both 32/64.exe are not working, Uplay as administrator etc.
// Example of topics: Unable to launch Game / Editor, Crash after video etc.
Again, we would like to remind you that in all cases, Uplay/Steam must be launched as administrator, if not you might not be able to download patches, launch the game etc.
// Right click - Properties - Compatibility - Check the box "Run this program as an administrator"

To ensure best acknowledgment and treatment of your feedback, could you please share your answers on the following threads:
