View Full Version : Buyer Beware a visit back to ACB

10-24-2011, 04:24 AM
If anyone remembers there was a visual bug involving a white gradient over lay on one third of the screen. Ubisoft denied a resolution and shortly after called it a "feature". If they are willing to treat serious visual bugs in such a manner be prepared..

I've had ACB since launch and never noticed this till I got my new Samsung last month. Doesn't really bother me though.

Well the fact is not everyone had the bug yet for those affected they claimed it as a feature. Multiplayer was not affected by it, only single player was. It's never been resolved.

That thing annoys me everytime I play ACB. Sucks as hell. The thing is, it's at some places of the map extremely obvious, while on others it's almost invisible. But I'd expect that to be removed with ACR... if it isn't, I'm gonna have to stab someone. I'll do that anyway though.

I hate it too but i think it's actually meant to be a bloom effect caused by the sun,and it happens only when you move the camera in certain angles and only in daytime (i think)...but it's a horrible effect nonetheless.

What bug?

It's a problem. Keep sending it in to Ubi. I don't know if it will be fixed, but it's obviously a really big problem that can't be fixed with a simple patch, it's going to take a lot of effort. Up untill recently most of the Ubi AC team has probably been working on fixing bugs for Revelations. If you want this to be fixed, you're going to have to wait. Sad but true.

Never got it on either my tiny SD TV or my larger HDTV (which is a plasma, not LED.) Not sure if that means anything, but maybe the type of monitor or TV you use could be a cause. Either way, hope it gets sorted for the folks who have the problem.

I can confirm with my own eyes that this 'issue' won't be present in Revelations. Personally, I have to say that this topic worries me as it is the same like telling people 'not to buy Revelations'. You can compare it to 'stealing money from the devs' as you try to convince people not to buy a game due to an issue from the previous one.

There's no real need to bring this up again though, seeing as you already had your battle back with the last game. You're hardly a hardcore fan with 11 posts since that last topic.

I think it looks quite cool, like a cloudy effect. I admit, it probably is a glitch. Brotherhood is riddled with them. Mine freezes every now and again when riding a horse (everything but the tail freezes, then it plays fine again)

It's almost like they didn't test Broterhood, and just got it out to the users as quick as possible. GREAT game though. From what I've seen of ACR, it looks much neater and well thoguht of

You don't have to post on the forums to be a hardcore fan.

Me neither. I'm not even sure what exactly it's supposed to look like.

10-24-2011, 03:45 PM
I haven't experienced this neither.

I have a FAT PS3 of 160gb and a Samsung TV.
