View Full Version : Ending crahes with AC3SP.exe has stopped working

12-15-2012, 03:17 AM
I have played the whole game without any crashes or any problems. But before the ending is finished, the game crashes saying "AC3SP.exe stopped working". It crashes right after showing the AC3_End.bik video.

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: APPCRASH

The game is retail (not Steam) & am running it on:
Windows 7
Intel Q9450 2.66GHz
GTX680 running 310.64beta drivers

Anyone else has the same problem? I cant find any solutions about this issue & I really want to continue my game...cause I am stuck at that point with no return.....

The solution:
If you renamed or removed these files:
- ubi_logo.bik (C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Assassin's Creed III\Videos)
- warning_disclaimer.bik (C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Assassin's Creed III\Videos\en)

Restore them to their original places/names and it will solve your crashing problem.
The credit goes to myself unfortunately...But it's fixed now..at least for me..

just out of curiosity, why did you rename/remove them from the first place?

Cause of the unskippable intros.

Gratuitous thanks for pointing this out. Whenever I encounter a game which stupidly and unacceptably prevents you from skipping the intro videos, I rename them. This is the first time I've seen a game where that causes problems *after* the point where the videos would play.

Guess I'll try creating a short and blank Bink video in their place.

Update: I can confirm that replacing the intro and previously-on videos with a single black frame Bink file works. No obnoxious unskippable videos and no idiotic game crashes.
