It might work to your benefit because now you'll apreciate the game more once it is released. The temptation to spoil it for yourself is put beyond you in this way.

Ubi, I believe you promised some "exclusive coverage", did you not?

Things learned from the “illegal” video {dang Patrice must be mad}
This is not the final version of the game, any glitches in there are being fixed
the HUD consists of five things:
1.A health bar made up of a circle
2.A count of the francs available on you right now
3.the button display for moves and actions
4.the GPS map for navigation
5.5 diamonds near the synchro bar, don't know purpose yet
Ezio started out with full synchronization and 2000 francs
he starts near the Duomo, and IS able to climb it
the button layout for the 360 shown are X=punch/attack Y= interact/eagle vision B=Drop/gentle push/tackle A= steal/run
stealing is done by gently pushing someone with the A button and stealing 1-5 francs at a time
there are still preachers, mostly portly monks.
You can buy poison and medicine at roadside stands from people with a weird sense in beard taste{yes that was his beard, not a mask}
to heal automatically is 200 francs
to buy medicine is 120 francs
to buy a small poison is 250 francs
the mini map uses a [Protoytpe] display for using icons to signify different things
the weapons wheel contains:
1. Hidden Blade
2.Hidden Gun
3.poison tipped dagger
4.short knife
5.main weapon/sword
7.throwing knives
8.available money
9.smoke bomb
the Hidden Gun takes about 5 secs to load and an additional 3 to fire, u must be locked on to target
missions can be obtained from pigeon coops{sp?}
you can accept or decline missions
buildings are taller than in the crusade, therefore all houses are much higher to climb
swinging on hanging flower pots can turn you 90 degrees
you can blend with any GROUP of people you see, but they must a group staying together, this is activated by just waking into their midst
you have an effect you can trigger which will show if your blended, if you are a wave of white lines will shimmer down you
you can move in third OR first person while in Eagle vision
there are still some of the same animations from the first game when you are fighting with your sword
when enemies are defeated you can loot their corpse and pick up or drop weapons they had
when you are engaged in combat, your mini map is outlined in red
you can meatflag guards like from Gears of war 2, {one of the best features}
mercenaries can fight for you, drawing attention away form you to sneak inside somewhere
secret areas are mostly guarded by Brutes
assassin pathways are engraved with a skull inside the assassin symbol, the gate is unlocked by putting your fingers inside the eyeholes and a complex machine lock is shown inside behind the skull
the catacombs mission was your 3rd memory
there will be about 4-5 hours of catacomb gameplay
this mission, you had to eavesdrop on a meeting between Templars
you can assassinate a guard from a ledge while you are still holding on
you can jump assassinate a guard directly beneath you while you are still crouching on a ledge
you do not need to use the weapon wheel, you can use the D-Pad for some transfers, although not all on the wheel can be used as such
Even though a Templar is fleeing from you, he will wait a certain points for you to catch up when you are chasing in Exploration Mode
you can loot chests and other objects the same way as you do corpses

If there is anything that needs to be added or changed please tell thanks! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Fixed a few things for you. Also, why did you stop numbering them?

Oh, and Knowing2 wasn't banned, he's only suspended. You'll probably see him in a week.

09-08-2009, 07:52 PM
Well my other account was suspended and that was like 2 months ago, and i still cant get on it.

09-08-2009, 07:56 PM
that sucks

09-08-2009, 08:13 PM
it depends on the aggression of the ban and at chazzbo, no it's not the plague mask, those were black and anyways, I zoomed the Image up on my tv, it's a beard with two sideburns ticking out like points near the top of his head
@kyle: I'll be sure to change those right away, and I just numbered as an extension to the previous bullet

09-08-2009, 08:15 PM
I'm glad knowing2 is gone, you doesn't seem to be able to grasp the simple concept that the videos were not allowed, no matter how many times he asks by starting new topics.

I'm glad to, that guy was starting to act like blooofthecreed, remember him?

09-08-2009, 08:21 PM
I remember him...but I don't remember him being a jerk at all lol.
And I would bet my balls that the guy who Ezio was shown buying poison from is wearing a mask, and not a ridiculous extend-o-beard. (My balls being the pieces of eden in my house...gosh people! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif )

09-08-2009, 09:04 PM
@thejyle0:for the GPS/health bar thing, I'm talking about in the upper left hand corner, u can see a circle with an assassin symbol in it, and when Patrice was getting Ezio beatin up, u saw it start to deteriate{sp?}

09-08-2009, 09:23 PM
I hope you're not talking about the person he buys the poison from, because that's obviously a mask haha. Check out this (http://plaguedoctor.net/plaguedoctor.gif) image. The Plague Doctor mask was white and is exactly what the guy is wearing (assuming we're referring to the same guy).

09-08-2009, 09:29 PM
yes it's the same person, and I know what a plaguemask looks like, I had to stare and learn about one for a month, I'm saying I super imploded the images on my tv and I could clearly see a face and the begginning of a beard

Same here. There's even a screenshot floating around from the trailer that shows the plague doctor cowering the background. It's a mask.

09-08-2009, 10:51 PM
u mean this?
http://img80.imageshack.us/img80/4087/0908092147.th.jpg (http://img80.imageshack.us/i/0908092147.jpg/)

notice how the mask curves DOWN and is in the upper half of the face, the one in the trailer is at the bottom of the face, and is straight, if it curves at all it is upwards

09-08-2009, 10:57 PM
That's the party mask. The doctors' garb covers the whole face...or else that poison dealer's face was as white as his absurb beard, which i doubt.

09-08-2009, 11:04 PM
the doctors till had a slight opening for the mouth, like as little as possible I think, but I was just showing chazzbo because he was talking about a screenshot from the trailer with it

09-08-2009, 11:23 PM
No hes talking about a different one in the new trailer, when he kicks the sword and stabs that guard the one with the 'funky' music for all you haters.... in the background theres a plague docter and its clearly a mask.
P.s. I g2g to bed but ill post the pic tomorrow afte school

Fixed that detail for you. Ezio's area used Florins as currency. The Franc was a french currency used in France until it adopted the Euro.

of course, both Florins and Francs are both obsolete today.

09-09-2009, 07:59 AM
really but I have a franc right here saying it was made in 1943. and it clearly says FRANC

the amolang
09-09-2009, 08:38 AM
i happen to be half swiss and switzerland uses Francs as its currency... are you sure that its a French Franc?

EDIT: I just asked my mom (who is swiss and lived in France for a while) and she said that when she lived in Paris they still used Francs, so I guess they changed currency within the last twenty-thirty years...

09-09-2009, 09:37 AM
Yeah...the EU is kinda newer than 1943. I'm not really sure what you possessing a franc has to do with whether it is still used or not. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
Anyway, yes, Ezio was pilfering Florins.

Those are the health bar. The circle you are talking about is most likely the notoriety bar. Notice how it goes up when the poisoned guard is killing people and how it goes up immidieately when the fight starts, not when Ezio takes a hit. As the fight progresses it starts to fill more. Most likely because more people have seen it at that point and went off to gossip about it.

http://img80.imageshack.us/img80/4087/0908092147.th.jpg (http://img80.imageshack.us/i/0908092147.jpg/) That acutally is a doctors mask. Or at least it was. That one was turned into a party mask. The bottom half was cut away to accomodate for consuming food and drink.

09-09-2009, 04:00 PM
@Edengoth: I was just saying that because EziotheAssassin said they were obsolete in France today, so I was just confused cause I didn't know France had a recent currency change
@thekyle0: O! I see that now, guess I got them a little mixed up and stuff>_<, I'll change it

09-09-2009, 06:32 PM
@Edengoth: That's exactly what I said in my last post.

@Disturbed: Yes, the Euro was adopted by France in 1999, the Franc was officially replaced by the Euro in 2002 and thus became obsolete. The Florin was Italy's major currency for a long time. It ran from 1252 to 1523.

But that's not the point. The currency in AC2 is the Florin, not the Franc, because the Franc was the French currency.

Right, which is why I was asking what his possessing a franc had to do with it being obsolete or not (which didn't come up until after your post) :P

09-09-2009, 06:39 PM
That was your AC2-sponsored history lesson for today.

Take in the knowledge, and feel the blood of the creed flowing through you.

09-09-2009, 06:55 PM
ya sry, my curiosity got the better of me when u said France didn't use Francs anymore lol, so that coin doesn't mean anything now?

09-09-2009, 06:58 PM
It means some euro. You can probably get it changed. Not valid to spend, but valid to exchange.

09-09-2009, 06:58 PM
Keep it, Disturbed. Original coins from European countries have become a collector’s item, now that we all have the Euro. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
