O wow I did it!

It's pretty simple, I tried to rund the exe directly.

I went to the installation folder and right clicked AC4BFSP.exe. The first thing I tried was run with GPU, and then I chose my dedicated card. I don't know if that was necessary but it was the first thing I tried and it worked. Maybe the problem is just launching it from Uplay.

I also have a Crash To Desktop - when launching the game - not aware if it happened after an update - but it prob. did... i tried restarting the computer - reinstalling the game - reinstalled my GFX drivers - tried running the .exe file directly from explorer - as administrator and everything - nothing has worked as of yet.
PC Specs:
i7 2600k
16 gb ram
770 GTX 2GB

the game ran perfectly fine yesterday...

the only thing you can do now is to reinstall the game, and cancel the update when you hit play on UPlay after installation.

Luckily the verify files worked for me. I understand how it feels out a sudden the game stopped working. It really freaks me out and really thank god the verify files worked. It must be the DRM thingy i would suspect.

Hey guys I got the same problem after the update so I uninstalled the game re-installed it and copied the AC4BFSP.exe and AC4BFMP.exe to a new folder run the update and after the updated I copied the 2 files back and overwrite the 2 that came with the update and my game is working again.

I have had this issue since I downloaded the game, it's random at different times. Sometimes I can play 20 minutes and sometimes 5 minutes. I tried all the recommendations form UBISOFT and nothing worked. It took over 4 hours to download this game!!!!!! Does anyone have the issue with the downloaded version and the store bought disc version as well? I wonder if there is a difference. Also, kind of annoying especially after building a good system to handle the newer games!!!!!!!

Same problem abn505. I tried countless methods, even at least 10 methods from Ubisoft itself.

You can also play for a specific amount of time then crash and restart system right ?

Yep, I can restart after a crash by Alt-Ctrl-Delete, I also verify the files in the Uplay console on the single player drop down every time it crashes.

I found the info below from sevenforums, I wonder if this would actually work. Any thoughts? http://www.sevenforums.com/gaming/313181-ac4bfsp-exe-has-stopped-working-problem.html

Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System
then advanced system settings
under advanced go to performance settings
then data execution prevention then add AC4BFSP.exe there

I am no longer going to do anything.

I wrote a final message to Ubisoft, and from now on I am going to wait. They HAVE TO find a solution for this, or else, there will be no reputation left towards Ubisoft. Everyone will eventually spread this word. Hell, even my mum and dad asks me everyday whether my game is working or not lol.

Do the patches come up sequentially in the UPlay launcher? I just installed the game and got the notice for a patch. Are there 3 patches out now and are they installed sequentially, not as one BIG patch. I'd like to not install 1.03 until they figure out what screwed up.

i'm not sure as i usually update any game asa the patch released and have a downloaded copy of the patch incase it was removed from Ubisoft servers as it happened before, so never faced the issue where the game has to be updated from scratch, try it out and let me know.

OK, that's what I normally like to do, download the patches and install them manually. But where can I find a link to the actual patches for the PC version?

I have not seen the patch on the support page.

still no solution Ubisoft?? why is it that you just ignore your customers? thousands of us have not been able to play this game since we bought it - yet not one word from you as to when this will be sorted! disgrace!

I have the same problem, Ubisoft recomendations don't work. I do get more crashes if I set my audio higher than CD quality, 16 bit 44000 mhz on my realtek audio chipset. Do a lot of people with this issue have a realtek audio chipset? It happens in Splintercell Blacklist too!

I've managed to get the game working now by doing the following listed below. However you will lose all saved games and will start from the beginning again..

1. Launch Uplay, login go to AC4BF game. stop.
2. go to "program files, ubisoft, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag folder.
3. Find DataPC_patch.forge
4. Rename to DataPC_patche.forge
5. Move up to AC4BFSP, double click and game should launch.
6. your game should be on rev:1.03

So far this is working for me, but have since lost interest in this game because of UBISOFT and their useless service and customer commitment. I am just wondering when it will crash again..maybe after 8 hours of gaming....
I describe UBISOFT service as this:

Say you go buy a brand new car, you turn the ignition and nothing happens....you phone the garage you bought the car from and IF by any remote chance they answer the phone, they say try the following:
1. is your battery charged?
2. have you checked your fuel level?
3. is there water and oil in the engine?
4. is it your car?
5. is it registered in your name?

it will not be a hard decision to make to NEVER, NEVER and NEVER again, buy another ibisoft game. Slick out.

I haven't found any stand alone patches to download, but I can get the game to run in offline mode however with no patches installed at the moment. How long will the game work before............
