View Full Version : Game bugged and unplayable

I don't know wtf happened, but my game has become unplayable.

Ok, well, I could technically play it, but I would be at such a hilarious disadvantage that it wouldn't even be worth trying. This is in MP, obviously.

I joined a session and my camera was zoomed way in and glued to the back of my character's head, like what happens if you hold down left trigger. Also, the camera would not rotate with me, all manipulation of the camera had to be done manually. I held LT down and let go, went into options and toggled Manual Camera back and forth a few times, and finally gave up and left the game.

Joined a new lobby. Same thing.

After 4 consecutive basically unplayable games (I cannot express in words how much of a disadvantage is is to not be able to hold A and have the camera move at the same time. Also, my view is way zoomed in and my field of view has shrunk greatly.), I gave up and turned the game off, and played Battlefield Bad Company 2, because it has about 3000 less bugs than this game. Seriously, I love this game so much, but between gameplay bugs and the freaking terrible matchmaking system, its really starting to test my patience.

Has anyone else had this problem/do you know how to fix it? Or do I need to go bug the tech support guys?

Did you by chance try a different controller? It's a shot in he dark but you never know. Also did you try restarting the system? Not saying these will fix it but it's what I would try first in addition to your other attempts

Try deleting your game data and then installing it again. REMEMBER NOT SAVE DATA, but game data.

I thought Shenmue was on the 360, unless he has a PS3 as well and was able to afford two copies of the game. Or that may be your case XD

Your thread title was rather deceptive, Squiiddish, and I was pleased to find no BAWWW in your post.

I'd say go straight to bug report

The camera zoom happened to me to, but it was soon fixed the next game or within the first game. I forget how.. I think I loaded hidden gun and killed with it. Next time try going on a bench against a wall and see if it resets the camera angle. Also press on the right analog stick to quickly look behind.

I can say that the sticky thread on the MP forums to help with better connection issues helped me.. I think, I don't want to jinx it but I followed some instructions in the thread and usually I disconnect around 80% of the time, the rest of the night after trying it, I experiences a BIG reduction in all that BS glitches/issues/connection issues.

I also want to say, the MP is indeed unfurnished, I'm deeply in love with this game so somehow I'm immune to the frustration.

One thing they need to fix is matchmaking. Whenever some one enters the game and looks for abstergo agents, I get the impression it first creates a game and empty lobby and has the player as the host, then looks for others to populate. After not filling, it mergers lobbies with another host.

I think this should be reversed if the case, Ubisoft should have people look to join rooms that have been started by another host, then if there is no available lobbies, the player becomes the host of a new lobby.

I don't work for Ubi so I don't exactly know how it goes, but thats the impression I get, if they reverse it to look for games before creating an abundance of hosts and empty rooms for every player looking for a match, they won't have so much lobbies open or have to worry about merging so much, this could help the servers.

Anyone specialize in this, lemme know your thoughts because frankly I don't know exactly what I'm talking about.

The game is extremely buggy. First, you have the match making issues (Tons of them), then there's the issue where you can't get a contract target in the game for minutes on end. Then the bug where you can't get a target contract for an entire round. Chase Breakers allowing attacks through them, smoke bombs not working on other players. Stun not working for a few seconds at random. Fun game, but really, the testing team for this (If there even was one) should be sacked if they haven't been already.

All of these multiplayer bugs and glitches are really disgraceful. Look at all the threads on here complaining about stuff like this. Really Ubisoft should be ashamed for putting out a product we paid $60 for that doesn't work half of the time. The sad thing is that this is a really fun game when everything works right. The problem is from minute to minute playing it you have no idea if your stuff is going to work. Really sad. When Halo Reach was released as a beta in May, their server crashed the first day so they were using the Halo 3 servers and Halo 3 was using what we referred to as a basement server with water dripping and rubber bands and paper clips. This worked 10 times better than whatever Ubisoft is using.

This is what ****es me off the most. This is a great game, but it is easily in the top 3 of most buggy/broken I've ever played.

And the other two are Fallout: New Vegas and Dragon Age, so this is a very buggy top 3.

I had a version of this happen to me last night. I spawned into a game that had started and I spawned right in front of my pursuer. Literally I was zoomed into this face.. All I could see on the screen in front of me was the face of the Prowler...scary stuff

Rainie needs to start commentating. With all Squiiddish's quips and jokes and bludgeoning(yes, as awkward as this looks, dictionary.com tells me it is correct) of people's self esteem, his vids are becoming more fun to watch. Lol.
