Hi guys,

I've searched on this forum (AC: Multiplayer and PC) and on Google without any result.

Here is the explanation of the bug encountered:

I have two PC's. One at home (a tower) and one personnal at office/week-end (a laptop).
Untill now, I've only play at Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood MULTIPLAYER at home (on my tower).
I have only the PC version of the game. I have pre-order it on Steam.

I'm level 36 and I've done some challenges. For example: I've the longest smoke bomb (4sec). This smoke bomb is obtained in finishing a specific challenge.


Now I'm in week-end. So I've installed AC:B on my laptop.
And when I connect me on the multiplayer mode, all the challenges are lost. (So, I've lost the longest smoke bomb)

I'm always level 36 but I have lost all my challenges done.


Does it have a solution ?
Why my challenges aren't saved in my AC/Ubi-account ?



Say me if a part of this post need more details.
And, please, excuse me for my bad english.



Thanks in advance for your answers,
Hyriuka



PS: I don't know if all my challenge are lost too at home. But I can update this post when I'll be back at home.

Edit: It's not a joke. Even if it's the 1st april.

Challenges, Abilities, Profile sets, and Persona Gear/Colour settings are saved to the game data on the game you've saved them on, they are not connected to your Ubi/Steam account. At least that's I think.

In any case, this could probably be a bonus considering you can redo the easier challenges for more EXP and quicker levelling up http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

@ElliottLam
Thanks a lot for your quickly answer!
I'm all clear now.


Just by curiosity and because I can't find it on virgin installation (no no, it's not because I'm to lazy to search it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif ), does it have a method to save/export these data (profiles, challenges, etc)?
For example: by copying a specific file in the folder game.

Even if it's not possible to save it, I'll profit to my week-end to farm. And win some easy xp http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Absolutely correct. I have some firsthand experience with this. On the PS3, you can back up your game profile to a flash drive and copy it to another PS3 if you want to carry over your challenge stats. This is useful if you need some of the challenge-based perks (like long-lasting smoke) unlocked on a different PS3. Otherwise the only things unlocked will be those things that are directly related to your level.

I imagine on the PC you could do similar, although I'm not exactly sure where the data lives.

win 7 savegame:
X:\Users\USERNAME\Saved Games\Assassin's Creed Brotherhood\SAVES\[FILENAME].SAV

Win Vista and XP will use sort of that same location, you should be able to easily locate it (If you can't find it, you might wanna show hidden files and folders, and check the AppData folder, or something like that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif)
